Mini Biography
Ricki Lake was born in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY, surprisingly as a blond. She has one sister, who is one year younger than, her named Jennifer.
 
Her father, Barry, is a pharmacist and her mother, Jill, is a homemaker. The two currently reside in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ricki attended Hastings Elementary as a child, then on to Farragut Middle, and then attended Hastings High, for two years.
 
At the end of her sophomore year, she transferred to The Professional Children's School, in NYC, to focus on perfecting her craft as an actress.

Also, Ricki began singing professionally at the age of nine, in cabarets and clubs. After finishing high school, she attended Ithaca College for one year.

During final exams of her freshman year, she received a call from her agent, telling her to audition for the lead in a John Waters film. Unsurprisingly, she landed the role as "Tracy Turnblad".
 
Thus, Hairspray (1988) marked the movie debut for Ricki Lake. She then went on to act in fifteen more movies and a recurring role in ABC's "China Beach" (1988), for one season. Although, at one point in her life, she hit rock-bottom.

Then, she decided to take charge of her life and make a dramatic change. She began eating right and exercising and soon lost over 125 lbs. In 1993, she was chosen, out of a hundred people, to host her own daytime talk show. After only three years, "Ricki Lake" (1993) has successfully been rated second, in its time frame.
 
Also, in 1993, she met the man of her dreams. At a Halloween party, she locked eyes with her current husband, Rob Sussman, a political illustrator. It was love-at-first sight, on both ends. The two married in Las Vegas in March of 1994 and are currently residing in Manhattan.

Ricki Lake strikes a pose for the shutterbugs at the Hollyrod Foundation DesignCare event. Anyone with an eye on this season of "Dancing With the Stars" can that see Ricki Lake is dropping some serious pounds on the dance floor, but last night the actress/former talk show host shared that she's 20 pounds slimmer thanks to her increasingly-acclaimed footwork on the ballroom floor.
Lake -- who at one point tipped the scales at 270 pounds -- is currently engaged to her boyfriend of 13 months, and is even waiting to try out bridal dresses until her transformation is complete. "I'm definitely a size six now," Lake recently shared. "I'll probably be a size four by the end of it. It's come to the point where it doesn't matter. I no longer wear Spanx."
 
So thanks to six weeks of competitive dancing (plus a few weeks of pre-premiere rehearsals), Lake is rocking a trimmer body than we've ever seen before. After five hours of rehearsal with pro partner Derek Hough each day, Lake says she is "going home and eating a balanced meal. It's really that simple ."

She recently told People she's "obsessed with gazpacho" and starts her day with healthy eats like oatmeal and veggie omelets.
