Ricki Lake Gets Engaged

Ricki Lake, who is most well known for playing Tracy Turnblad in the original 1988 film “Hairspray” and as the host of “Who’s Trashier” I mean, “Ricki Lake” is engaged!

Sadly, I hear of Ricki Lake’s engagement and all I can think of is the “Ricki Lake” episode called “My fiancé is cheating on me with my sister!”

This will be Ricki’s second marriage, as she was married for 10 years to illustrator Rob Sussman whom she divorced in 2005 and had two kids with, Milo, 14, and Owen, 10.

Though Ricki once told People that she was too “cynical” to ever get married again.

But enough about old news, she obviously got over her cynicism. So, who is her new boy toy? Her fiancé is Christian Evans, a 40 year-old jewelry designer whom she met through mutual friends.

"Thrilled to share some happy news with you...I'm engaged! :)" she tweets.

"There's no plan or wedding date because it is obviously so recent," her reps tells E! "They were in Spain on vacation and he popped the question."

Ricki is gushing over her new man, “But this is just so natural and easy. I'm with a man who doesn't feel threatened. He doesn't want to keep me down. And I've never been treated like this in my life."

What’s Ricki Lake been up to nowadays?

She was on an episode of Drop Dead Diva. So that’s cool. Oh, but her Malibu house burned down in September when she attempted to refuel a portable heater. Not so cool. But she was fine. So that's cool.

It must be wedding fever in Hollywood. Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey tied the knot a couple weeks ago.

That chick from the Bachelorette (Ashley Hebert?) is recently engaged to the dude she choose from the competition dating show (what’s his name? JP Rosenbaum?)

Kate Hudson just popped out a baby and is soon to be wed to her Muse frontman Matt Bellamy.

Kate Moss got married last month to rocker Jamie Hince. Am I missing anybody? Oh yah, Kim Kardashian is getting married to Kris Humphries next week. I obviously didn't forget that wedding, that date is burned into my brain.
