Ricki Lake Wiki Biography

Ricki Pamela Lake was born on 21 September 1968, in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York State USA, to Ashkenazi-Jewish parents, and is a television host, actress and producer, probably best known as the host of her own television show, called “Ricki Lake”. During her career as an actress and host she has won an Emmy Award and was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award. From 2012 until 2013 Ricki had another talk show, entitled “The Ricki Lake Show”. Her career as a television host and actress has not only made her popular, but also helped her to accumulate a sizeable fortune over her almost 30 year career.

So just how rich is Ricki Lake? Authoritative sources have recently estimated that Ricki’s net worth is over $15 million as of mid-2016,  and it might become higher in the future as she continues her endeavours.

Ricki Lake was educated at Hastings High School through the end of her sophomore year, then matriculated from the Professional Children’s Schoo,l and attended Ithaca College for just a year. Ricki  made her debut as an actress in “Hairspray”(1988) directed by John Waters, in which she worked with Debbie Harry, Sonny Bono, Jerry Stiller and others. After that success Ricki became more popular and noticed by others. She subsequently appeared in such movies as “Serial Mom”, “Cry-Baby”, “Mrs. Winterbourne”, “Inside Monkey Zetterland” and “Ceci B. Demanted”. During the filming of these movies, Lake had an opportunity to work with Melanie Griffith, Susan Tyrrell, Johnny Depp, Sam Waterston and many others. Appearances in all these movies not only made Ricki famous but added a lot to Ricki Lake’s net worth. Other movies that Ricki was a part of include “Where the Day Takes You”, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Cabin Boyame”, “A Dirty Shame”, “The Business of Being Born”.

Ricki is also a noted television host; when she was only 24 years-old, Ricki started to host her own show, “Ricki Lake”. Later she hosted another show, entitled “The Ricki Lake Show”, but that lasted just one season, and still added to Lake’s net worth. Other appearances on TV have included “The Oprah Winfrey Show”, “Loving Leah”, “King of the Hill”, “The King of Queens”, “Charm School with Ricki Lake” and many others, which also contributed to her net worth.

In addition to the aforementioned, Lake also participated in “Dancing with the Stars”, in which her partner was Derek Hough. Recently she was part of a project creating a documentary about the disadvantages of hormonal birth control, called “Sweetening the Pill”, which will also probably add to Lake’s net worth.

In her personal life, Ricki Lake has married twice, firstly to Rob Sussman (1994–2004) with whom she has two sons, the second of whose water birth was shown in the documentary “The Business of Being Born”. Her second husband is Christian Evans (m. 2012), which seems somewhat on-off according to recent reports.

Ricki Lake Quotes

  • I want (my children) to be in touch with the real world and to be able to see themselves as just two of the billions of people on this planet. There’s a lot of charity work that we do as a family. This year they went to Malawi to build a house for a family that needed a home. Volunteer work is incredible for kids who are growing up rather privileged and need to really get a sense of the world, the big picture.
  • I never set out to be a role model for large women, I just do what I feel is right.
  • My goal in life was to be loved and adored by everyone.
