This show were n't so bad Once Upon a Time
13 February 2001 | by (London , England) – See all my reviews

Ricki Lake , is most probably the lighter version of Jerry Springer and they really do have uneasy subject matters...They are always the same.

I dont mind affairs and the like , yet the people who come out and explain their actions are immediately booed and hissed. I just have 1 wish , I would just love to go on the show and tell Ricki what most English people think of the subjects that seem to come out all the time. Id begin with affairs , by explaining that affairs are a plain fact of life , we dont like to be the victim or the wronged partner , but that is how it is. Another is this strange obsession with make-overs...they are boring. A memorable program was this Radio DJ condemning people on welfare and wanting to stop welfare payments , whilst neglecting , that he most probably will personally benefit if those tax-cuts took place. Ricki , comes over as a nice woman , but would she be brave enough to deter from the safe salacious stories to hard-hitting subjects that actually would increase her International audience....I wont hold my breath.
