Filed under: John WatersHolidazeHealth

John Waters

Guests of John Waters' annual holiday party — which has been around for 45 years — were in for a bit of a disappointment on Friday when they learned the host would not be in attendance.

It was reported on Tuesday that the 70-year-old iconic Hairspray director was hospitalized over the weekend because of kidney stones.

But we're happy to let you know the Cry-Baby filmmaker is already on the mend, as he told the Baltimore Fishbowl:

"Since my party has always been private and off the record I think I'll just keep it that way. I am fine and it's a new concept in home entertainment — the host doesn't show up. All is well. JW."

We're happy to hear it!

Is 2016 over yet?

For those of you who may not remember, Miz Lake portrayed the leading lady in John Waters' 1988 film, while Marissa took on the larger-than-life role in the original Broadway cast alongside Harvey Fierstein, who is reprising his role as Edna for the upcoming broadcast.

And, Miz Winokur is dishing exclusive deets to us about the lovely ladies' cameos in the Maddie Baillio-led remake!

The 43-year-old explained that her former costar had been working to come up with a fun part for the actresses, but the Fever Pitch alum confessed that she and the former talk show host were just thrilled to be included, saying:

Ricki Lake, Marissa Jaret Winokur, & Maddie Baillio Candidly Talk About Hairspray & What It's Like To Be Plus-Size In Hollywood!

the women of hairspray

With NBC's live production of Hairspray drawing closer, we can't help but think of all the incredible women who've starred in the lead role over the years.

As you may recall, Ricki Lake made the character Tracy Turnblad famous in John Waters' 1988 hit film Hairspray. Marissa Jaret Winokur would then go onto win a Tony for the same role in the Broadway adaptation of flick. Now Maddie Baillio is taking the reigns as the plus-size optimist for the highly anticipated televised production. So it's safe to say the pressure is on — especially since so many young girls look up to Tracy!

However, prior to her Hairspray fame, Miz Lake didn't ever think she'd get the chance to play a show stopping lead. In a sitdown with the others (named above), the 48-year-old recalled to People:

Ricki Lake Teaches Derek Hough Hairspray Dance Moves

Filed under: Ricki LakeReality TV

As cheesy as these dance moves are, we actually hope the Dancing With The Stars pair find a way to incorporate them into a routine!

Ricki Lake posted this behind the scenes video of a rehearsal with her DWTS partner Derek Hough. In the midst of goofing around, she teaches Derek a few moves she remembers from her days playing Tracy Turnblad in the John Waters classic, Hairspray.

Sure, they're simple and dated, but we think the throwback to her iconic role would impress judges (if done well, at least).

Check out the video above and let us know if U think Ricki stands a chance to be this season's best below!
