Lake was born and grew up in Detroit, Michigan. She has worked in in radio, had her own TV show on HGTV, wrote books, co-founded an organization, and so much more. She was pretty down to earth when I spoke with her so let’s go inside the interview with TV Paternity Court Judge Lauren Lake.
Each of the cases seem very touching in some way or another so the first question I asked was related to the show. Was there a case you recall that stuck with you after the cameras stopped rolling?
“In season 2 there was a little boy whose parents had sturggled with drugs and relationships. The family did not have active utilities it was clear the focus was not on the child. The paternity results revealed the gentlemen was the father. After the show I followed up with producers to see how the young man was doing, but the producers lost contact after trying to locate the family. This case really stuck with me for a long time after the show was taped I worried a lot about that young man and his future”.
Loyal Lauren Lake fans wanted to know what plans does she have for the future as it relates to her success?
Her response to this question was “In the future I hope to do more radio because I love being on the air. Right now the website is undergoing a relaunch and I have the jewelry line underway. You can also expect my book and inspirational CD’s soon.
