Is she still lightning in a bottle? The Ricki Lake Show, the new syndicated daytime talk program hosted by actress and Dancing With the Stars fave Ricki Lake, will make its debut on September 10. Lake was a mere 24 when she hit the chat scene in 1993 with her first show, Ricki Lake, a youth-appeal hit that ran 11 seasons and became a pop-culture phenomenon. But what does she bring to the party at age 43? Lake gave us an exclusive inside look at her first, emotion-packed day back on the talk circuit. It's all here. The laughs. The nerves. The tears.

Kardashian's improbable journey may be the story of the season, and Lake has Hough, the show's first three-time champ, in her corner.
The trio will face off Monday and Tuesday with four dances: an unlearned dance, their favorite dance, the Instant samba and, of course, the freestyle.
