Newly engaged Ricki Lake says she will wait to try on wedding dresses until she finishs her run on “Dancing with the Stars.”
“I haven’t deal with that yet,” she tells People.com. “I’m going to wait until I can go as far as I can go in this competition [to get my body in the best shape], then start trying on dresses.”
Lake has already picked a florist, venue and photographer for her upcoming wedding to Christian Evans, but she says choosing her dress will have to wait until her new body takes shape.
“Muscles I didn’t know I had are defined. It’s dramatic,” she says. “Everyone is seeing it, and they are telling me, but I see it and I’m a tough critic.”
Although Lake is enjoying her time competing on the show, she says she is excited about the future and getting married.
“I met the best guy in the whole wide world,” she says. “I have so many great professional things happening – I have a new talk show, a book coming out, all amazing – but I wouldn’t want any of it without him.”
