Sherri Shepherd Gets Eliminated form DWTS and Skips Press Interviews! Watch her Elimination.[video]

>>>See Video of Elimination Below<<<

I have to say that I was even shocked when Sherri got the boot from DWTS yesterday.  She just loved being on the show, loved being the talk of the day, and loved competing.  Despite her mis-steps I figured here personality along with everyone wanting to see how much weight she would really lose would be enough to keep the View Co-host on the show for at least a few more weeks.

Sherri and partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy were in the bottom two with Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower.

When the announcement was made that Sherri was going home, I think everyone was in shock.  Sherri came to tears and Len Goodman offered some kind words,

‘All of us judges are in total shock. This is beyond …The standard is so high, anyone can be in jeopardy, anyone can be safe.’

Sherri was then able to utter a few words thanking everyone and her partner,

‘I loved this whole experience. I love to dance.

‘I just want to say thank you for letting me live a dream I’ve always had.

‘I had the most amazing partner, Val Chmerkovskiy. That thing that scares you the most … run towards it because it’s so amazing on the other side … I had the most amazing time.’


After Sherri’s statements on camera during the broadcast she was done.  No interviews for anyone.  Period!  She walked right past the press line full of reporters from all the tabloids dying to get some additional comments.

US Weekly reported that a source at the show told them that Shepherd was very upset, (No sh*t!)

“She was crying pretty hard post show and everyone was hugging her, It’s highly unusual for [the eliminated celeb] to skip press, especially someone who seemed to have a good attitude like Sherri.”

That goes to show you how upset she really was.  She isn’t a D-list celeb trying to make a comeback.  She did the show because she had something to prove to herself, and getting voted off way too early really didn’t give her an opportunity to showcase her talents.  She was essentially just getting warm and probably used to all the attention.


Skipping the press line was also a faster way to get to her appointment with Jimmy Kimmel.  She had to catch a plane and make an appearance on his show all the way in New York.  Keeping her commitment with Kimmel, Sherri was visibly upset but seemed to be composed and able to talk about her experiences.  Sherri told Kimmel,

“It was a very big surprise.  Carrie Ann said she’s never seen me so expressionless, and I’m an actress, so that’s like telling Gladys Knight she can’t sing. As an actress, Carrie Ann’s going to get me blacklisted”

She also talked about all the love she got from her girls at The View,

“Barbara voted 12 times the first week, Elisabeth tweeted [about it], Joy was rooting for me — I know all my ladies were there for me every step of the way,”

Wait….what about Whoopi?  Did Elisabeth and Joy really vote or did they just tweet and root.  If I’m on DWTS and I have a show that’s literally on every single f*ckin weekday, there is no way on earth I’m going home this early.

This goes to show you, if you have a favorite celebrity on one of these shows, then vote.  Don’t count on anyone else voting because everyone will be doing the same thing, and no one will be voting.  Then your favorite celeb will get sent home.
