The downward trend, as many very large companies artists of the decade of 1980 and Ricki Lake as Tracy Turnblad in the Roly-Poly original 1988, Hairspray.
Today, 23 years, many television roles, a stint as a talk-show presenter and many, many books later, the lake loses again as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars, which began as a dance, but the competition has become a weight loss program again.
