On Saturday, Lake's beach home burnt down after a couch caught fire when she was trying to refuel a portable heater. Ricki escaped with her two children and dog unharmed.

What a shame ! That would be so bad to lose everything like that. Glad there were no injuries.

That's too bad. Hate to see anyone lose their property. But really, isn't she irrelevant anymore?

How dumb do you have to be that you burn down your house while refueling a heater. Probably did it for the insurance money.

You HAVE got to be kidding...
"she was trying to refuel a portable heater". That's the kind of headline you see in the middle of Winter, when someone in public housing (with NO heat) tries to stay warm with a propane heater. Ricki, check out HSN they have some new fangled ELECTRIC heaters!

Something about her story doesn't add up. I think she was doing something else that started that fire.

Q    

That dump looks eerily similar to the one that grandson of Max Factor, the rapist who filmed his exploits and was captured by Dog the Bounty Hunter in Mexico, looks just like the dump he owned in Malibu. Wonder if the Factor family rents it out, now that junior is doing life in San Quentin. I would imagine he has been extorted, raped, beaten, robbed, and allowed to live only because hes now the gift that keeps on giving, through his family paying convicts families ransom.

Nice pick there Lake.

That goof just made a killing on a home she sold in barrington hills, il near chicago where she used to film her "show".

with a stainless steel back. The matching white polyurethane strap with a buckle clasp keeps the watch looking immaculate all over, which means you can even sue this sporty watch even when you're dressed up.

Insurance Claims    

It is interesting that the owner is personally suing Ricki Lake for damages.. I would tend to think that Ms. Lake would have had proper renters for her personal property destroyed by fire, as well as Mr. Kousayan having a policy covering accidental damages caused by tenants. I would think that Mr. Kousayan would make claim against his policy for damages, and then, his carrier may attempt to go after Ricki Lake...
