Jack Wagner, Sherri Shepherd, Maria Menounos, Gavin DeGraw and Melissa Gilbert will all be among those competing on Dancing With the Stars March 19.
A pair of sports stars – Green Bay Packers wideout Donald Driver and tennis legend Martina Navratilova – will also be lacing up their dancing shoes.
Perhaps more importantly, Maksim Chmerkovskiy says he’ll be back!
DeGraw is up for some serious double duty, as he will also continue his current U.S. tour for the first few weeks of the season, if he can last that long.
Gavin’s pro partner, Karina Smirnoff, will most likely join him on tour soMore >
Sherri Shepherd is on Team Breezy.
The View host has been vocal in defense of Chris Brown before, so it’s no surprise that she stood up for the star in the wake of this week’s Grammy lovefest backlash.
All Brown did was show up at the award show, perform and win. No controversy at all. Yet his mere presence at the event after his 2009 attack on Rihanna upset many.
While Shepherd criticized female fans who Tweet about how they’d let Chris beat them all night (among other things), Shepherd defended Brown from criticism.
He may even be a role model, she says. Why?More >
Move over, Joy Behar and Steve Janowitz. You’ve got company. Her View co-host Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally also tied the knot this weekend!
Sherri and Lamar tied the knot at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago, her hometown, on Saturday. Her 6-year-old son Jeffrey walked her down the aisle.
Shepherd’s eight bridesmaids included another View co-host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, plus Niecy Nash and Community star Yvette Nicole Brown.
Sherri pretty much Tweeted until she walked down the aisle, writing yesterday, “Sitting in the room in my gown waiting for Sal& groomsmen to take their pics… can’t letMore >
Every now and then, The View panelists actually engage in an interesting discussion.
Such was the case when the topic of Tracy Morgan, his recent anti-gay rant on stage and subsequent apology came up this week on the talk show.
Whoopi Goldberg didn’t defend Morgan’s specific outburst, but did speak from experience as a comedian when she said this stuff just happens occasionally on stage: “Sometimes we step in it and it’s bad, and this is one of those times… when a comic has gone over the line and realized it. Not just because people told him, but because he realized it.”More >
President Barack Obama appeared on female gab fest The View this past Thursday and we’ve come to learn that it was the most watched telecast of all time.
According to TV reporting firm Nielsen Research, the telecast brought in more than 6.6 million American viewers and featured the standard cast of culprits including Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
Obama talked to the ladies about everything from the very serious Gulf Oil Spill to less tragic fare including Justin Bieber and Snooki of Jersey Shore Fame.
Sherri Shepherd is battling with GLADD these days over comments The View host made concerning HIV in the African-American community.
But that’s not the only fight Shepherd is engaged in.
The comedian/actress has been in court all week, as the divorce trial between her and Jeff Tarpley is underway.
Shepherd filed to end the marriage in 2006 and she told TMZ why yesterday: soon after their child was born premature that year, Sherri returned from a visit to the ICU – and discovered photos of Tarpley having sex with another woman!
He later impregnated this mistress.
Shepherd does say her exMore >
The feud between GLADD and The View is far from over.
On June 22, comedian D.L. Hughley co-hosted the ABC talk show. He and Sherri Shepherd got into a discussion about the prominence of HIV among African-Americans, both agreeing that it exists because gay black men (“on the down low”) have sex with women.
“When you look at the prevalence of HIV in the African American community, it’s primarily young women who are getting it from men who are on the down low,” Hughley said.
However, the Centers for Disease Control has provided numbers that disprove this theory.
Therefore, GLADD has demandedMore >
This is a first: The View is facing controversy, and it’s NOT over something Elisabeth Hasselbeck said.
In fact, that conservative commentator – whose most recent example of opinionated nonsense involved a shot at Erin Andrews – has nothing to do with why GLADD is taking aim at this ABC talk show.
Instead, the organization has its sights set on Sherri Shepherd and D.L. Hughley, the June 22 guest host. On that date, the pair talked about the influx of HIV among African-Americans and blamed it on gay black men that were in the closet, aka “on the down low.”
“When you look at the prevalenceMore >
