Ricki Lake once again finds herself in first place on Dancing With the Stars.

The talk show personality and former Hairspray star earned the season’s highest score yet for her rumba last night, posting three nines and a 27 in all.

That edged out J.R. Martinez and Chynna Phillips, who scored 26 apiece.

Lake said the dance symbolized finding love again (with fiance Christian Evans) after a divorce, and the judges rewarded her routine with Derek Hough.
