Go Ricki! Go Ricki! Former TV host Ricki Lake is engaged to Christian Evans. The cult icon from John Waters’ Hairspray and Crybaby tweeted the news today and told People, “I’m totally in love. I’m happier than I’ve ever been.” Lake previously described Evans, her boyfriend of a year, as “a nobody, but he’s a somebody to me. He’s everything to me.” This will be Lake’s second marriage. She has two children, 14-year-old Milo and 10-year-old Owen, with ex-husband Rob Sussman. They divorced in 2005.
