She looks hideous!

I think she looks nice.

She does not look hideous-she looks like Edna Turnblad

Funny ... I was just thinking about Ricki Lake today.

And Craig Sheffer.

Okay, mostly about Craig Sheffer.

"Changing her lifestyle" = "shooting up Ozempic."

by Anonymousreply 6June 8, 2024 1:25 AM

She's like 55 but looks 65 or 70.

She mentioned Kirstie Alley & gives off repub vibes in this.

Vibes that I've never gotten from her before.

Anyone know what her 2024 social media posts are like?

by Anonymousreply 7June 8, 2024 4:00 AM

She looks radiant, that haircut is perfect for her, and her shirt is crisp as fuck.

However, there is some trickery going on – the Camryn Manheim earrings and the Zoomer mom jeans tell me she's trying her damn hardest to project as youthful an image as possible. If I'm noticing it, it means she's overdone it.

Do we know what she does these days? Like, for a living? I assume she's not just lazing around the manse all day, counting her stacks from the '90s.

^ Wrong. She's a successful spokeswoman for hair coloring.

R6. I sincerely hope it is Ozempic. Otherwise, the weight is not staying off.

She looks so old with that gray hair. Her hubby seems gay.

She’s insufferable and has a very bad reputation for being a nasty piece of work.

No, she doesn’t. The hair looks great. It’s the in look now.

R6, she’s doing Keto. That will take over major weight easily.

by Anonymousreply 16June 8, 2024 4:41 AM

Perhaps she invests well and buys real estate. I remember her bringing her talk show back in the early 2010s. She didn’t want it trashy and wanted it uplifting. It bombed. She didn’t get the memo about why her original talk show was so successful.

by Anonymousreply 17June 8, 2024 4:42 AM

She would do well if she did that popular Maury show of "You Are NOT The Father!"

by Anonymousreply 18June 8, 2024 4:46 AM

Hope she gets ovarian & pancreatic cancer-yeah!

by Anonymousreply 19June 8, 2024 4:46 AM

Y'all are fucking strange. Take a look at her Instagram. She looks great and isn't hiding anything.

R19. Aren’t you the nice one.

What's with the embracing the gray she's sported the past few years. She's only 55.

Seems attention seeking behavior. She's not 65 or 70.

by Anonymousreply 22June 8, 2024 4:59 AM

Dear god. We’ve reached a stage when having a natural hair color is attention-seeking

She's famously been losing and gaining back weight for about as long as Oprah, so she's very much not new to the yo-yo effect. In one of my earliest memories as a child, I recall reading my mom's gossip mag and there was this short insert about Ricki Lake going into seclusion in a desert somewhere, determined to lose her weight for good this time around. I don't know why I remember that little detail in particular, I guess it just conjured up this fantastic image of her sweating in a hut in some desert, with only a water bottle to keep her company. This was years before I started watching her show, which I loved.

I've embraced going grey for the past 2 years. It's hard as a woman, but it's not as bad as I thought it might be.

by Anonymousreply 26June 8, 2024 5:05 AM

And R23 - if you think that gray isn't colored, you're dreaming. That's not natural either. That's my point. She decided to dye her hair gray.

by Anonymousreply 27June 8, 2024 5:06 AM

R25- Her show was my favorite talk show in the mid to late 1990's- I would often videotape her show especially when the theme was gay related.

by Anonymousreply 28June 8, 2024 5:06 AM

I hated her talk show. She was so horrible, like a limp noodle, as a talk host. I don't understand how her show was so popular. Jenny Jones, as well. Horrible. It was the time for talk shows, I guess.

by Anonymousreply 29June 8, 2024 5:08 AM

R27 I didn’t say it wasn’t colored.

She’s a Trumper now just like cousin Kari Lake

^ Don't forget Veronica Lake too.

by Anonymousreply 33June 8, 2024 6:15 AM

She had alopecia and has been very open about it. Consider her hair may not be able to handle dyes.

I can't believe DL is coming after Ricki so hard relentlessly this, rather than just the usual small piss-takes. Never thought I'd see the day.

She has always been beautiful and is even more so now, with her face thinned out. She has some loose skin from the weight fluctuations, but it's not that noticeable. All in all, she is a fabulous-looking 55. So, so much prettier than her countless duck-lipped, injected, and lifted peers.

by Anonymousreply 36June 8, 2024 12:39 PM

I’ve always found her very attractive. But this bob hairstyle is frumpy.

A new cut and color and she’d look terrific.

[quote]She mentioned Kirstie Alley & gives off repub vibes in this. Vibes that I've never gotten from her before.

She wrote some book about natural childbirth and encouraged giving birth at home with no medical intervention. Based on that, I think it’s very likely that she’s an anti-vaxxer and has probably gone down the Republican rabbit-hole.

by Anonymousreply 38June 8, 2024 1:30 PM

Her show was iconic peak 90s. It was the best of the trashy guest talk shows that were around then.

Oprah losing 50 pounds is like JLo getting married. Been there, seen that before, and we all know how it’s going to end.

Ricki looks so short in the video OP posted that I looked up her height. She has to be shorter than 5’4”. I would have guessed 5 foot or maybe 5’1”.

This is useless PR unless she's about to start hawking some product/program/reverse mortgage/car shield endeavor.

R45 That was 8 or 9 years ago based on her age.

Some folks have switched their political views since then.

She’s not. Trumpy. Have you ever listened to her being interviewed?

by Anonymousreply 49June 9, 2024 10:05 AM

She was never as fat as she was in Hairspray, but you can see even in that her weight fluctuated quite a bit from scene to scene. She'd lose weight due to the dancing and John Waters would order her to eat junk food.
