Three weeks into the competition, Ricki Lake is a lean and mean dancing machine, losing more than 13 inches off her body and at least 15 pounds of her weight.

“The Derek Hough diet is the best. “It’s hardcore,” she adds.

I’ve done hard: I had my baby in my bathtub at home’ and yet we work out all day long. We are sweating all over each other!”
