Ricki Lake Hopes To "Channel Kirstie Alley" On Dancing With The Stars

Posted on Tue Aug 30, 2011 02:30 PM PDT


Our photogs caught up with the just-announced cast members of Dancing With The Stars on Tuesday, and former talk show host Ricki Lake was excited to get started as she headed to the dance studios!

In a video posted to her Twitter account, Lake reveals that she is "terrified" to do the show! She says:

    "I'm not a trained dancer -- I have no idea what I'm doing! I'm hoping to channel Kirstie Alley -- she was a big inspiration for me last season."

Alley sent a supportive Tweet back, saying, "@RickiLake .....Girl, Rock that party hard!!! Show em how it's done....Love, Mommy...;)"

Lake's been Tweeting like crazy since the announcement. See the pics she sent out of her and contestants Rob Kardashian, Nancy Grace and David Arquette after the jump!


Ricki shared a dressing room with Grace Monday night and called Arquette, "the nicest guy."

Additional contestants include Chaz Bono and George Clooney's ex, Elisabetta Canalis.
