Ricki Lake’s “awesome” vagina

There was a great article on Salon.com yesterday discussing Ricki Lake’s new movie, “The Business of Being Born”:

Also, someone on Mothering.com posted a link to the whole Ricki Lake segment on “The View” from the other day.

One thought on “Ricki Lake’s “awesome” vagina”

  1. Great read on Ricki.

    By the way, laughed my arse off over this line:

    “This isn’t Angelina Jolie traipsing through Kenya with an economist.”


    And this, so utterly ironic:

    “Her mother had smoked throughout her pregnancies and been knocked out for her deliveries. Her father is a pharmacist.”

    You’d think that w/a hubby who deals in/with health would help the wife put the kibosh on the tobacco poisoning. Of course “back in those days,” from what i hear, peeps “didn’t know” what harm could come from smoking while preggers. Still…

    Go, Ricki.

    Loved that story, Amy, thanks!
