The View's Sherri Shepherd is getting a Lifetime show

Sherri ShepherdIt was inevitable. Ever since Rosie O'Donnell grew a second head and spit venom at Elisabeth Hasselbeck, The View has been on the radar. Even without current host Rosie O'Donnell, there's been buzz with new co-host Whoopi Goldberg. Hasselbeck keeps causing trouble on the set with her lone conservative voice, Whoopi is outspoken in her own right, Joy Behar is a lunatic and even Barbara Walters has been known to snag a headline or two. Of course Lifetime wants a piece of that buzz. And to get it they're grabbing ... uh ... Sherri Shepherd?

Doesn't Sherri Shepherd think she'll fall off the edge of the earth if she goes too far? I thought she was still there because they didn't want to have to rebuild the table with one fewer chair. Huh, I guess I was wrong. Lifetime picked up Sherri Shepherd's sitcom Sherri for 12-episodes.

This means they won't be going forward on comedies starring Cybill Shepherd (no relation) and Valerie Bertinelli, which considerring this is Lifetime is a monumental achievement. I thought those two had contracts ensuring they'd be on at least half-a-dozen Lifetime movies per year!

Oh God, say it isn't so. I cannot take too much more of this. This woman is so darn nerve wrecking, she makes a person want to take sleeping pills and they are not even sleepy.

I would say commit suicide, but it would be my luck I kill myself and there she is standing over me giving me mouth to mouth telling me that everything is alright and I would wish I was dead for real.

Loved her to death in Less than Perfect. She's great on her occasional 30 Rock appearances. Then came The View. As Shakespeare said, better to be thought of as a busty but extremely stupid actress than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

I used to like her, when Ellen had her on all the time, doing stunts, etc. But when she got the View, the first day, there was a retrospective of her life and work. Not a single mention of Ellen. Boooooo. Ingrate.
