Lake was born to a Jewish family in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York to Jill, a housewife, and Barry Lake, a pharmacist She attended Ithaca College and the Professional Children's School . She also attended Farragut Middle School in Hastings-on-Hudson, and her sixth-grade mathematics teacher, Rosemary Reihman, was featured on her talk show.
At a Halloween party in 1993, she met artist/illustrator Rob Sussman.
"I never believed in love at first sight until I met him, and he was also jewish like me" she said. Ricki thought he was also the perfect guy, not attracted to her wealth, since he had no idea she was famous. "He had no clue about the show. When I told him, he said 'What's it called Ricki?'...which was great. I met him at the perfect time in my life," said Lake. Ricki and Rob were supposed to go for dinner after the party, but they forgot, and as she told everyone, they ended up in their hotel room. "I don't know how but I swear the instant I saw him, I knew this was the man I was going to marry," remarked Ricki.
They were married shortly after in Los Angeles. Their two sons are Milo Sebastian Sussman (22 March 1997) and Owen Tyler Sussman (18 June 2001). The two divorced in 2003 after 9 years of marriage. The New York Post reported on April 23rd, 2003 that Ricki was moving to California in hopes of finding "that next big thing." Ricki recently dated trainer Appollo Yiamouviannis, however they split in early 2007 after going out for three years.
In early 2007, after years of balooning weight, Lake pursued an intense "new routine" resulting in over 125 pounds of weight loss, taking her to 120 pounds, down from a high of 260 pounds. In November 2007, Lake cited sexual abuse as a child as a reason for her problems with obesity.
