Way Back When: ‘90s Talk Show Hosts

The Ricki Lake Show

Host: Ricki Lake, the formerly plus-size star of John Waters’ films. Yes, Ricki is also not a black lady, but she’s banked a few “ghetto passes”.

Dates Aired: 1993-2004

Signature Show: The one with Reverend Fred Phelps and his scary thoughts about HIV/AIDS and gay men.

Swivel Factor (on scale of 1-10): 3, because she was pretty hip

What is She Doing Now: She’s making a comeback with an all new “Ricki Lake Show” debuting September 2012
