The latest: Ricki Lake, 54, appeared in high spirits when she was seen shipping groceries Monday at Whole Foods Market in Malibu, Calif.

The Hastings-on-Hudson, New York native spoke to Entertainment Tonight last month about a number of topics, including her successful run as a talk show host from 1992 to 2004 with her talk -eponymous show.

Lake said the success of the venture took her by surprise, as she “didn’t think it would be such a big hit.”

“I never anticipated any of my hits, nor did I calculate the next move,” she said.

Lake opened up about the trajectory of her career, including her starring role in John Waters’ 1988 film Hairspray and the influences previous talk show hosts had on her.

‘Hairspray has arrived; okay, I can be Tracy Turnblad,” she said. “They gave me a talk show. I loved talk shows back then. I was Oprah, Phil Donahue, Sally Jessy. I was an avid observer. So I was like, “Okay, I’m just going to channel Oprah.” ‘

Lake, who started her new podcasting venture last month, said her social nature has helped her mature as a host.

“I think coming into the role…I’m curious about people,” Lake said. “I like gossip, I like relationships. I like what makes people tick. And so it was that natural curiosity and being a good listener, being candid with my own triumphs and problems and being really caring.

“I don’t know, growing through the stages and becoming really comfortable in this role. I’m more comfortable being myself much more than being an actress.

Lake has hosted a number of high-profile guests on his show, including Rosie O’Donnell and Andy Cohen.
