“The Masked Singer’s” Raven Finally Revealed


As obscure as the hit show The Masked Singer is every week, so are the celebrities that the show continues to reveal. And that trend continued on Wednesday (Jan. 6) when the Raven was unmasked.

And believe it or not, hiding under the mask was Ricki Lake!

“The raven is about metamorphosis,” Lake told the audience after taking her intricate mask off. “It’s about death, but it’s also about rebirth. I went through the loss of my husband last year, and it really was an opportunity for me to share my journey through his loss. He was the best thing that ever happened to me.”

This week, celebrity panelist Robin Thicke guessed right when he told the audience before the unmasking that he had a feeling that the Raven was, in fact, the Hairspray star. In fact, Thicke also mentioned that he was a big fan of Lake’s talk show.

During the episode, Raven performed alongside the Bee, Peacock and Monster and performed the song “Brave” by Sara Bareilles.

And for Lake, she’s thrilled that the secret is finally officially out.

“The hardest part of this job has been keeping my mouth shut,” Lake said in a recent interview. “On Instagram, everyone’s like, ‘Hi, Raven. Hi, Raven. Hi, Raven.’ I pride myself on my authenticity and being truthful, so it’s been really hard to keep it quiet.”
