The View Replacing Thick, Black Star Jones With Thick, Black Sherri Shepherd
— Thu, Jan 4, 2007 —

So much for The View hopeful Lola Ogunnaike — looks like the "black lady slot" on Barbara Walters' morning estrogen-fest has been filled by Sherri Shepherd. First rumormongered on and (nearly) confirmed on, ABC is said to be finishing up a deal with Shepherd, who white people might know from Beauty Shop and BET's Comic View. The past few days have been her test run to replace Star Jones' empty seat.

Rumor is they are going to work the angle of Shepherd's sudden divorce... her ex hubby Jeff was a cheating, all while their newborn baby was in the neonatal intensive care.... Well, Shepherd threw him to the curb...

Even more exciting: While Rosie O'Donnell may be blogging, Shepherd is already on MySpace — and has just 2660 friends. Shame, we know. So add her to your Top 8, and show Rosie O'Donnell which big girl has your vote.

If she does get hired on, let's hope she won't get get gastric bypass, grow into an alien, and marry some gay dude in a tacktastic wedding.

I would have loved to see Jackie Reed in this spot, she's pretty and pretty hilarious. She was the co-host on the WBLS Steve Harvey Show since it's inception, and used to host a news program on HBO.

Sheri is the best choice. She fits in with all of the lady's and the best part is if she needs to, she can take Rosie on.

Any woman with her "assets" willing to have her bra size measured while on national television (which Sheri did this morning) has all the guts needed to join that panel. Welcome!!

I think Sherri might be just the person to deal with seems to me that sherri has no prob with telling what's on her mind.Her sense of humor and fun is infectious. she has been on Ellen's show a few times and everyone
howled with laughter. (luge episode)

Someone made a good decision for Babs this time.

I'm waiting for Babs to call sherri Star ,in error.ha

Love Sherri and thrilled to hear it looks like she is joining. Cant wait to see her, she is hilarious and with all those comedians on the set it is bound to be funny. They will all make up for Elisabeth being uptight enought for all of them.

I really don't know why the view wants to add another person to the show because with Rosie, Elizabeth, Joy and Barbara I think that the show is a success especially since Star is no longer there.

I really don't know why Judy had to comment, because with all the other people who commented, I think that the thread is a success, especially since Judy is no longer typing.
