our next guest, ruled daytime tv for 11 years. IN THE '90s CHA-CHAED HERSELF Into the our hearts on "dancing with the stars." And welcomed a new talk show. Please welcome the singular ricki lake. Hi, everybody. Great to see you. Hi, everybody. I think I might have just showed my naughty bid for that section over there. Sorry. Rating, baby. You know, I'm doing everything to help you guys out. Thank you. It's a pleasure to be here today. You're friend of our, and a friend personally. I didn't realize doing the research you were only 24 when you started? How presumptuous for me to assume -- they handed me the microphone. Back in the day I really pretended to be oprah. Were you n of the show? I was a huge fan. I grew up watching phil donahue. I thought if they gave me the job, of course I can do this. I love talk television. But I didn't know what I was doing. I love that innocence. "Dancing with the stars" was the perfect example. I didn't know what I was getting myself into. Didn't you start putting those faces together? Now you can bring a worldliness to a program and proply opens up, I'm going to guess for your new show, topics that you're going to cover. Absolutely, life exrience. Through mistakes that you make, you pick yourself up. All of it. My triumphs and my hardships i think have made me a better host this time. Because I have a sense of rela relatability that I -- at 24, you really don't have a point of view. You don't know who you are. Not that I figured it out yet. I'm very much open about the fact that I'm not there, but I'm working on it. I kind of love that. I think so many of us, men and women can relate. It's a journey. Like robin said this morning -- it's a journey, not a destination. I was supposed to be here this morning. I'm wearing my bracelet. What she said, it's not about the destination, it's about the journey. I'm so lucky, I've grown up in front of all of these people. I did my show for 11 years. Now I'm back and feel like I'm better than I've ever been. I'm happier than I've ever been. I'm in a healthy relationship for the first time in my life. Thank you. I don't look like I did when i was here in november on "dancing with the stars." Have you put on some weight since "dancing with the stars"? How can you not? Thank you, josh. It's okay. I said I'm going to keep this up. But I'm not dancing with derek hough anymore. I'm dancing with someone else. But not quite the exercise -- i know this is daytime, but -- they call that the lance of love. Want to play a game? I love a good game. Everybody yell it with me, have they been primed, scotty? We're going to play "kiss marry ditch"! Do I get up? this is a new twist, somebody has inverted himself. That was not supposed to happen. But you're going into the world of daytime tv. These guys look familiar. Lara, our first contestant was whom? Our first contestant as you can see has always caused controversy on his talk show. We do so love him. Geraldo rivera. I love him. I see a chair coming his way. Our second contestant, he ruled the air waves alongside ricki for 17 year, montel williams. She's a sweetheart. The last contestant, most eligible bachelor -- yeah, I think you know him -- josh elliott from "good afternoon america"! I'll handle this. Are you really blushing? Yes, I really am. That was supposed to be maury povich. The idea, there's another version of this game we can't say on the air. This is our version. You have to kiss somebody, you have to marry somebody -- this looks like something else. No. And you have to kiss somebody. Okay. Okay. Okay. All right. So who will it be? Who will you kiss? Who will you marry and who will you ditch. Don't take this the wrong way, josh, but I'm going to kiss mont montel. There you go. I heard he's a great kisser. Who will you marry? It's no secret. I don't want to get myself into trouble with my husband. I'm newly married and very happy -- let's do a dance. Ready? Mwah! And do I put a bag over his head? Geraldo, you're a sweetheart and we did oprah together a year and a half ago, I'm sorry, I'm so sorry. Fresh out of veils, geraldo. I'm not a hater, but that looks so sweet on you. Can I keep the ?
