Ricki Lake disclosing her 30-year battle with hair loss

It’s difficult to forget the notorious 2022 Oscars incident in which actor Will Smith hit comedian Chris Rock for making a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, and her shaved head. Pinkett Smith has been shaving her head since 2021 due to alopecia.

It’s a touchy subject, especially for public figures whose lives are on display.

Ricki Lake, a talk show host and actor, disclosed that she had been considering suicide for over 30 years due to her self-shaming over her thinning hair.
