Twentieth Television has canceled the syndicated ‘Ricki Lake Show’ after one season that failed to attract viewers.
The former ‘Dancing with the Stars’ celebrity returned to day time television in September 2012 with the launch of a new show that categorized her as a “working mom trying to figure life out” and inviting viewers to share her journey.
The 44-year-old actress and producer found early success on television that turned into an eleven year career from 1993-2004 with her first daytime talk show ‘Ricki Lake.’
One of her pet projects was the creation of a home birth and midwifery documentary ‘The Business of Being Born’ that was released in limited markets in 2008 after it premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Ricki began dating Christian Evan in 2009 and married him in April 2012. She has two sons, Milo, 15, and Owen, 11, born during her 1994-2005 marriage to illustrator-bartender Rob Sussman.
