Lake tops, Bono flops during DWTS

Ricki Lake had a lot to celebrate in Dancing With The Stars this week.

The actress came top of the leader board with 23 points - and she's shed several inches from her body.

"I'm really getting in great shape," she said after the show. "I'll be wearing less and less clothing. The smaller I get, the less will be covered."

Meanwhile, Chas Bono flopped with a total of just 17 points and was berated by judge Len Goodman for his quickstep.

"The bottom line is it's a quickstep and I've moved faster through the car wash," Len said.

Bono, 42, blamed his aching knees for forcing him to "(take) out some of the flashier stuff that was just really hurting my body," but said he'll push himself to the limit to stay on the show.

And Rob Kardashian has now officially taken over from his sister Kim, who lasted just three weeks when she took part in 2008.

"It's official, Rob Kardashian is a better dancer than Kim Kardashian!" judge Carrie Ann Inaba said. "You have the dancing gene."

Rob's 21 points earned him third place, where he tied with singer Chynna Phillips, TV personality Nancy Grace and George Clooney's ex Elisabetta Canalis.

Actor J.R. Martinez and reality star Kristin Cavallari both finished second with 22 points, while joining Bono near the bottom of the scoreboard were actor David Arquette and TV personality Carson Kressley, who each earned 18 points.
