Ricki Lake's Message to New 'DWTS' Cast: I'm Grateful to Have it Behind Me! (VIDEO)
If you're looking for an honest opinion about being on Dancing with the Stars, look no further than Ricki Lake!
As a contestant on the show last season, she says it was "brutal" and that while she is grateful to be on the show, "I'm grateful to have it behind me," she adds with a sly smile.
The (soon-to-be) daytime talk show host raved about her partner Derek Hough, saying, "He was hardcore but he was the best."
"I wish the new cast the best of luck," she added. "I'm excited, I can't wait to watch this season."
