Ricki Lake opens wide for documentary
Prepare to see a side of Ricki Lake you’ve never before experienced. The New York Post reports her new documentary on childbirth, The Business of Being Born, features Ricki buck naked in her bathtub and giving birth to her second son. The explicit footage, made in 2001, will be screening at the IFC Center in the West Village. Afterward, the actress and TV host calls the experience “empowering” because she didn’t use drugs — although the same cannot be said for audience members.
