Americans love to hate Spencer Pratt.
And they like to look at photos of Eva Longoria nude.
Neither of these facts come as a shock to us. But we were surprised to learn that people really, love to read about Ricki Lake.
According to the Us Weekly website, the magazine's recent cover story about a bikini-clad Lake losing 125 pounds was the third most popular article in the history of that online destination. You won't be taken aback by the two topics it trailed:
crazy and tragic impressive company for Ricki to be included in.
"I f--king love the cover! It's amazing!" Lake said. "So many people from my past have come forward telling me how great I looked, and it has been an overwhelming response. I am thrilled with everything and love the way I look on the cover and in the magazine."
It just goes to show that Americans can't get enough of a good weight loss story. Why else would Jared Fogle still be on TV?
Or Valerie Bertinelli be in the news again?
