“Ricki literally broke down in tears and collapsed after a grueling day of filming,” a source told the National Enquirer.
“But it wasn’t the long day as much as the show’s quality that got to her. She was screaming, ‘This isn’t what I signed up for! I hate my job! I hate my job! I HATE my job!’
“The show was supposed to be classier and more topical, like Katie Couric’s, and Ricki believed she’d be interviewing A-list movers and shakers.
“But the ratings are low, and Ricki feels the producers are pushing her back to her old ways with shows on ambush makeovers, nanny confidentials, gays leading straight lives and matchmaking. Their feeling is, ‘if it worked in the past, it will work again.’
“Ricki is depressed and wants out. Nothing would make her happier.”
