Go Ricki! Go Ricki! Go Ricki!
Ah yes, we can't wait to hear those two beautiful words chanted from a live studio audience again!
Yes, that's right. Ricki Lake is returning to daytime television!!
She is currently in development with Twentieth Television to launch an hour-long talk show that will premiere in the fall 2012.
Ricki expressed her excitement about the upcoming show in a statement:
"It has been very fulfilling for the past seven years to focus my energy on advocacy work on behalf families and children. Now, I am excited to return to my roots and work with Twentieth Television to develop a talk show that will give me an opportunity to share my experiences and reconnect with audiences."
So exciting!! We've missed your face on our television sets, Ricki!
