Ricki Lake knows the transformation that can take place to a celebrity’s body while he or she is on “Dancing With the Stars,” so she’s putting off buying her wedding dress until her hopefully slimmer shape emerges.
“I’m going to wait until I can go as far as I can go in this competition
[to get my body in the best shape], then start trying on dresses,” the actress tells People.
“When I lost weight a couple years ago, I weighed less than I do now,
probably 10 pounds. But there is a difference. I didn’t work out with
that – it was a crash diet. Now muscles I didn’t know I had
are defined. It’s dramatic. Everyone is seeing it, and they are telling
me, but I see it and I’m a tough critic,” says Lake.
She became engaged to fiance Christian Evans back on Aug. 11. No date for the wedding has been revealed yet, but they have booked a location, photographer and florist.
Best of luck to you, Ricki!
