'Dancing With the Stars:' Ricki Lake Threatens to Quit
Ricki Lake may have earned a near-perfect score on Monday's Dancing With the Stars, but she's losing her cool.
"I feel a tremendous amount of pressure," she told her partner (and three-time winner) Derek Hough while rehearsing before the show. "Has anyone ever quit the show?"

Lake, 43, continued, "I am going to have a breakdown. I just can't do it. It's just very confusing for me. I am not getting it. I want to quit. Like I totally want to quit -- and I am not a quitter."

But Lake and Hough earned a near-perfect 29 out of 30 for their Psycho-themed tango, becoming the first couple during this season to earn two 10s from the judges.
After accomplishing that, Lake changed her tune.
