Ricki Lake Earns Best Score On DWTS; Says She’s Lost 12 Inches

by Radar Staff

Ricki Lake not only earned the highest score (23 out of 30) on Monday night’s Dancing with the Stars, there’s another number close to her heart  — 12. That’s the number of inches she’s lost off her frame in three weeks, thanks to ABC’s hit ballroom competition.

Lake — who could be heard grousing, “How did Kirstie Alley do this?” during rehearsals in a videotaped piece that aired Monday night on DWTS — looked light on her feet as she captured the night’s best score for her jive set to OutKast‘s “Hey Ya!” with pro partner Derek Hough.

“It’s a workout, and I’m having a great time, and I love my teacher and partner,” the talk show host said following her well-received set on Monday.

Lake, who’s engaged to Christian Evans, is shedding so much weight, she said she’s not even going to try on a wedding dress until she’s done dancing.
