Ricki Lake Suffers Ego Bruise on Dancing With the Stars

by at . Comments

Thanks to Nancy Grace, Ricki Lake should advance to next week on Dancing With the Stars without a problem. Still, her confidence took a bit of a hit Monday night.

The front-runner didn't fare too well during her instant jive, earning her lowest score from the judges in weeks. Backstage afterward, she was clearly discouraged.

"Right now, my ego," she said when asked what hurt most.

"I'm just covered in bruises, same old, same old. I don't want to complain," she said, adding "[J.R. Martinez] was amazing. My vote would be with him tonight."

Hard to argue with the talk show host there, given that he scored a perfect 60 out of 60, topping Ricki's tied-for-second 52 by quite a considerable margin.

Lake can take solace in the fact that J.R. had an off week last Monday while she shined, though. As long as she survives tonight's results show, it's a new game.
