LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ricki Lake brought a little less to the ballroom on "Dancing With the Stars." The TV personality says she has lost 12 inches — mostly from her waist and hips — since she started rehearsing for the ABC show.

She comes into Tuesday's results show in first place, earning the judges' top score of 23 points Monday for her energetic jive.

Chaz Bono has also lost weight since signing on for the show, but he didn't fare so well on the scoreboard Monday: The author and activist landed in last place with 17 points for a quickstep routine that judges deemed too slow. One said, "I've moved faster through the car wash."

A second celebrity will be eliminated from the show Tuesday. Ron Artest, now known as Metta World Peace, was dismissed last week.
