Ricki Lake Biography

As a biography, Ricki Lake was born September 21, 1968 which makes her age 39. I can’t believe the girl is almost 40! Lake attended Ithica College , and she is mostly known for her role as Tracy Turnblad in the film ‘Hairspray’ and her self titled long running daytime talk show. Between ‘Hairspray’ and her talk show, she also had a cameo role in the film ‘Working Girl’ and in the television series ‘China Beach’ as the overweight Red Cross recreation worker Holly the Donut Dolly.

Most recently, Lake hosted the Gameshow Marathon on CBS, which was a re-creation of the classic game shows with celebrity contestants. It was only a two month gig from May to June 2006, but she did sign a deal with FremantleMedia to create and produce future programs. Because of this project, Ricki holds the record for hosting the most game shows, with seven.

Ricki’s personal life has also been a public focus. She has struggled with weight all her life but recently lost 125 pounds, taking her to 120 pounds, down from a high of 260 pounds. Lake blames sexual abuse in her childhood for her weight troubles. She admits never confronting her abuser but when she eventually told her parents of the abuse, the person was “quickly removed�? from her life.

Ricki has two sons, Milo and Owen, which is how she now focuses her time. She also enjoys playing competitive poker. You can see the video of Ricki at the WPT Poker Tournament where she discusses her new documentary below.
