Go Ricki! Go Ricki!
Get ready to chant like it's 1993 -- the Ricki Lake Show is coming back to television!
Ricki Lake's television days are far from over! The Dancing with the Stars finalist made a big announcement Friday about her post-competition plans.
"Many of you grew up with me" Ricki Lake said in a video posted on her Facebook page. "I hope you'll stay in touch with me. We'll learn about each other, and I'm so looking forward to getting back on the air with a show that you guys are needing to see."
That's right, come September 2012, fans will once again be chanting 'Go Ricki! Go Ricki!' as the show that originally ran from 1993-2004 returns with all new episodes.
"I want to spark ideas and conversations and inspire people to take active roles in their communities, relationships and their well-being," the 43-year-old said in a statement. "I have definitely grown as a person since I put down the mic in 2005, and I couldn't be happier to share and continue the journey with both my existing fans and an entirely new generation of women."
Paul Franklin, Twentieth Television's executive vice president and general sales manager of broadcast, said in a statement: "Less than a year away from debut, anticipation continues to build with television viewers and the station community for Ricki Lake's fresh, new talk show return. Focusing on topics significant to women, we are thrilled that Ricki will bring daily conversation and her relatable spirit to this impressive group of stations."
It's been an exciting year for Ricki Lake, who along with announcing the return of the Ricki Lake Show and her Dancing with the Stars success, accepted a marriage proposal from jewelry designer Christian Evans. "Thrilled to share some happy news with you... I'm engaged!" she tweeted in August, later adding, "The cat is out of the bag. Phew! I'm terrible at keeping secrets. :)"
Will you be watching the Ricki Lake Show when it returns next fall?
