Hello, lovely people!
For those of you who just saw The Ricki Lake Show, I want to thank you for stopping by. This blog is my little attempt to tell the story of how my mom came out of the closet after 25 years of marriage. Her declaration shook the foundation of our family. It was shocking and difficult to handle at first, but her truth forced us to really look at our family, to remember why we loved each other. I suppose we’d been taking that for granted, slowly drifting apart. So in some ways, my mom coming out actually saved our family.
I’ve reposted a few of the early blog posts to give everyone a sense of what you might find on this site. I hope you enjoy.
Oh, in case any of you are wondering, Ricki Lake is, without question, one of the most beautiful, kind-hearted people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting, and I was born and raised in Kansas City, so that’s saying something.
Thank you again for stopping by!
