Ricki Lake: Dancing With the Stars' Gold Standard

by at . Comments

One point. That's all that separated Ricki Lake from perfection last night.

Taking over the top spot for the second straight week on Dancing With the Stars, Lake bested her nearest competitor, J.R. Martinez, by three whole points.

Clad in black along with partner Derek Hough, Lake showed some astounding body control, precise steps and the perfect level of emotion for the routine.

Watch her performance here and tell us if you think she'll win it all:
