We all remember good old Ricki Lake from back in the day. When it came to 90s/00s talk shows she was among the ranks of Trisha Goddard and Sally Jesse Raphael. Well, last year she made a big comeback after 8 years off screen but unfortunately it didn't go down too well and Twentieth Television have pulled The Ricki Lake Show after just one season.
Lake won't let this latest setback get her down though."I am so proud of the shows we completed this season, sparking important conversations about everything from raising children to mental illness to suicide prevention to coming out," she said.
"I will continue to be an active and passionate voice for subjects that are close to my heart through a variety of platforms - and a return to my documentary filmmaking work with Abby Epstein. I am excited to create meaningful and provocative films similar to our 2007 project The Business of Being Born."
Guess she just couldn't keep up with the likes of Jeremy Kyle. Note to talk show hosts: Install a step from which you can impart your knowledge / berate your unruly guests. It's the only way to survive.
