A post shared by Ricki Lake (@rickilake)The results from the Republican gubernatorial primary held yesterday in Arizona are still being tallied and the election remains too close to call as former TV news anchor/MAGA queen Kari Lake leads her opponent, Karrin Taylor Robson, by less than 12,000 votes.As people across the country wait for the results, one former ’90s TV icon and occasional actress who happens to share the same last name as Lake wants everyone to know she is 100% not related to the pro-Trump, anti-drag queen conspiracy theorist.Related: Daily Dose: A wild queer musical classic of divas and dragTV host Ricki Lake took to Twitter last night to clear up any confusion.“For the record- NO RELATION!” the Hairspray star tweeted, along with a video of Lake bickering with a reporter about non-existent voter fraud.In the clip, MSNBC reporter Vaughn Hillyard grills Lake about her unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud, to which she replies, “The last person on the planet Earth that I would tell about we discovered is you and MSDNC!”For the record-NO RELATION!— Ricki Lake (@RickiLake) August 3, 2022As of this morning, Lake had captured 46.2% of the vote to Taylor Robson’s 44.5%.

The two women are seeking to succeed term-limited Gov. Doug Ducey. Despite the election still not being called, Lake gave a speech prematurely declaring victory late last evening.“We won this race!” she told supporters at a primary election night rally.Lake made national headlines in June when photos of her partying with a drag queen leaked online right after she joined her fellow Republicans in targeting drag performers, insinuating they’re all perverts and pedophiles.Related: Turns out this drag-hating GOP candidate.
