Ricki Lake on ex-husband Christian Evans's tragic suicide: 'My darkest days have been these last seven months'
CHAT SHOW QUEEN RICKI LATE JOINS US AND OPENS UP ABOUT HER EX HUSBAND'S TRAGIC SUICIDE
She's one of the most famous chat show hosts in the world and Ricki wanted to use her time on Loose Women to pay tribute to her ex-husband, Christian Evans, who sadly took his own life earlier this year.
'My darkest days have been these last seven months, I'm wearing his wedding ring and he would want me to go on,' Ricki revealed.
'It's very cathartic for me to be here. Now my newest cause is talking about mental illness and suicide prevention. It's really an honour to be here to honour him.'
'Life goes on but I am suffering my greatest loss - he was my twin flame, the only thing other than my two children that matter to me.'
Ricki said that he had suffered from bi polar - a condition that causes periods of depression and periods of elevated mood - but also 'had a lot of other issues'.
'It's very difficult to manage,' she said. 'I don't have the answers but going through this experience I have so much empathy and compassion for people suffering from mental illness.'
