Radar Chats WIth Ricki Lake

  • Ricki Lake gave birth to her second child at home in a bathtub, supervised only by a midwife and her loved ones. The former talk-show queen found the experience so moving, she decided to make a movie about it. The documentary, The Business of Being Born, which opened yesterday, is that movie. The film relies on statistics and footage of midwife-directed births, and makes a case against C-section-mad, lawsuit-focused hospitals. Ricki sat down with Radar to talk about the movie, the motivation for her weight loss (hint: It had more to do with landing on the cover of US Weekly than self-improvement), her weave, and TMZ.
