    Im getting bad news left and right arent I? Her show was far more enticing to me than anything else you put in her time slot. I am not happy about it being canceled. I never saw the kris show and never cared to. If that gets renewed I lost all faith in tv. Ricki and Steve were my shows. And what bethanny replaces her? Gah no faith in tv.

    I loved Ricki Lake’s old show but this one is a snooze fest. Every other episode is children related and for those of us who can’t stand kids and don’t want any, the show is boring. Protect your kids from sunburn. Protect your kids from stalkers. Protect your kids from internet predators. My scary childbirth stories. Keeping kids safe. Keeping kids from harm. Kids. Kids. Kids. The show would have been a lot better if every single episode wasn’t about children or parenting. There have been a few good shows, namely the one where Shane Bitney Crowe was on, but the rest I’ve had to skip through because constantly referring to your children or constantly offering parenting advice is boring to people like me.

    I love Ricki Lake and want her to succeed with her TV show so I have a few constructive remarks to make: Ricki, you need a COMPLETE MAKEOVER. from your hair, to your clothes, to using your hands too much. Let’s have some bright colors popping out of your clothes instead of your drab colors always covered up with something black. You have a beautiful face. Pull your hair up and show it off. Bring back that self-confidence that at sometimes you lack, and it shows. Be the woman that you are. Radiant!!!

    Hi Ricki, I have always loved your shows and I think your show should be renewed for many seasons. You talk about today’s issues and offer many solutions.
    I have a question for you; 8 1/2 years ago I had gastro- bypass and lost over 130 pounds, I’m very happy about my results and I have been able to keep the weight off. The problem I’m having is that I lost my insurance and I need to have the extra removed from my breast and arms, the sagging skin is starting to bother me a lot, it feels like my skin in these areas is constantly streching and has become very uncomfortable. Some of the insurance companies in the past calls this cosmetic, but my doctor calls it reconstruction. I am not trying to have a body of a 18 year old, I dont want them bigger, I just want to the extra skin gone, I’ve even ask if I could donate it to the burn patience. I need help. What do I do?
    Thank You
    Tia Carter
