250 pounds is definitely a typo, Rob.

I had a big crush on her back in the late 90s!

Actually if you watch the Johnny Depp movie "Cry Baby" from 1990, you'll see a heavier Miss Lake prior to her becoming the TV show how which might help to answer that your question.

Rikki Lake weighed 270 lbs at her heaviest. She weighs about 130 lbs now and works hard at trying to stay that weight. She's done a fabulous job!

I really hope it's meant to be 150 pounds!! What do you think, Rob?
[Editor Rob: I've no idea how big she looked back then, but yeah, not 250]
