Her parents are Jill (a homemaker) and Barry Lake (a pharmacist), but, she was brought up by her paternal grandmother Sylvia Lake until she died in 1978.

She also appeared in other films made by Waters such as Cry-Baby (with Johnny Depp and Susan Tyrrell), Cecil B. Demented (with Melanie Griffith and Stephen Dorff), and Serial Mom (with Kathleen Turner and Sam Waterston). She played a starring role in Mrs. Winterbourne with Shirley MacLaine and Brendan Fraser, and also in Cabin Boy, Last Exit to Brooklyn, Cookie and Inside Monkey Zetterland.
She played the role of Holly “the Donut Dolly” Pelegrino, a Red Cross volunteer on the Vietnam War drama series China Beach on its third season. Lake is most famous for her portrayal of Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray. She is also famous for her internationally broadcast talk show that was aired from September 2003 until May 2004. At the time of her show’s debut, she was 24, and at that time was the youngest person to host a syndicated talk show.
In autumn 2012, Lake started a second syndicated talk show project The Ricki Lake Show (called as The New Ricki Lake Show) which aired on weekdays. Although the show got cancelled in 2013 after a single season, but, Lake won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show Host.
Lake’s struggles with weight are also well-known. She confessed in the year 2011 that the insecurity arising out of abuse during her childhood made her a heavy eater. In the early 1990s, prior to the premiere of her talk show, Lake went on a diet and shed 100 pounds in only six months. During her pregnancy, she admitted having been a yo-yo dieter, but, after her second son was born, she started following a healthier diet and soon lost 30 pounds more, which according to her, got more noticed than her earlier loss of 100
pounds. She has since maintained her weight for nearly two decades.
