Lake was fully contained in a hot-pink costume loaded with fringe and a pink feather in her hair. She has admitted her getup was small -- but, she says, she's getting smaller. Lake says she's lost 12 inches in three weeks.

"I’ll be wearing less and less clothing," the talk show host says in a post at InsideTV. "The smaller I get, the less will be covered." Lake says dancing partner Derek Hough just wanted her costume "to move." And it did.

Did Nancy Grace suffer an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction? Some say the dress slipped, revealing a bit too much of the well-endowed legal analyst. Grace admits to some "movement" but insists no malfunction occurred.

Lake was lighting up Twitter on Tuesday with comments about "Dancing With the Stars" and thanking her friends: "I felt the love!" 

There's another dress on the 43-year-old Lake's mind: The one she'll wear for her upcoming marriage to  Christian Evans. She's putting off shopping for a wedding dress while involved in this competition. Who knows how many more inches will fall away?  And as she told People: "Muscles I didn't know I had" are appearing. Not a bad way to get in shape for your wedding.
