Ricki Lake Vows to Be 'The Incredible Shrinking Woman'

She's got a new job, a new man (husband of three months Christian Evans) and, yes, an active sex life, but ask talk show host Ricki Lake what she's wishing for these days and she admits: "I'd like to lose 10 pounds – just like everyone."

"I'm not fat, and I'm not a size 4," says Lake, 43, who's between a size 6 and 8. "I'm constantly working every day not to beat myself up for it."

Assessing herself, Lake, who returns to daytime on her weekday, nationally syndicated The Ricki Lake Show, set to premiere Sept. 10, says: "I'm definitely not in as good as shape as I was on Dancing with the Stars. Part of me gets mad at myself that I didn't keep it up – but it's impossible. I'm not dancing for seven hours a day anymore. I can't maintain that."

J.R. Martinez Wins Dancing with the Stars

Originally posted 11/22/2011 11:10PM

After a topsy-turvy season of sore ankles and even sorer losers, Dancing with the Stars ended Tuesday night by pitting an unlikely frontrunner against a heroic survivor.

After Ricki Lake, 43, was eliminated earlier in the show, Rob Kardashian, 24, the reality TV brother often overshadowed by his famous – and infamous – older sisters, went against J.R. Martinez, 28, the soldier-turned-actor whose triumph over severe burns received in Iraq brought raw emotion to the ballroom.

For their final dance, a samba which both couples had to choreograph on the fly, each earned perfect scores, leaving Kardashian with a one point lead after two nights of competition. But the judges' scores make up only half the final results. Once the viewers' votes were tabulated, the winner was determined. Keep reading to find out who won:

After a competitive finale on Dancing with the Stars, ultimately only two couples were left to battle it out for the mirror-ball trophy on Tuesday night.

First, though, the three finalists – Ricki Lake, J.R. Martinez and Rob Kardashian – performed their favorite dances from season 13 one more time for the judges. Once the new scores were combined with the previous night's point totals, Lake emerged as the leader, followed closely by Kardashian and Martinez.

In the end, though, the audience's votes were also a factor in determining which two couples would compete for the trophy. Continue reading to find out who was eliminated in the first hour of Tuesday's show:
