Does anyone remember this: “Ricki, Ricki, Ricki, Ricki”? Well do a few stretches and warm up those vocal chords-I’m about to give you a reason to shout, “Ricki” again.
Actress turned talk show host, Ricki Lake, is following in the steps of the Queen Of Bottled Water herself, Madonna, and getting involved with Malawi. Apparently, Ricki’s Malawian nanny founded the Jacaranda School in the African country and now Ricki’s pitching in to help build a latrine.
Lake admitted that Madonna was her inspiration for getting involved with Malawi after she adopted her son David from the country. Lake said, “I love that Madonna adopted this baby and has brought so much attention to Malawi. She’s my hero.”
From Hairspray to Serial Mom to interracial drag queens in incestual relationships to Malawi, I call this is a good career move on the old checkerboard of life. So, I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: “Ricki, Ricki, Ricki, Ricki!!!!”
