Sheryl Underwood says Sherri Shepherd knew she was getting fired from “The View”

By  |  24 Comments

Sheryl Underwood has been friends with Sherri Shepherd for a very long time. She spoke about her fellow comedian with TMZ this week when they asked her about Shepherd leaving “The View.”  It had been reported that the show’s executives were letting go of everyone except for Whoopi Goldberg, though Shepherd has offered a mixed claim that she made the decision to leave herself.

Underwood says that most comedians know when their time is up and that it’s time to move on.

Shepherd recently stated that the bible told her that her time should be up with the show.

“Seven in the Bible is the number of God’s completion. And I’ve been here seven years and my time at The View is complete,” she said. 

Sherri gave a teary goodbye to the cast and audience of the show earlier this week, reflecting on many of the great things that have happened over the years.

“I’ve been blessed to interview Barack Obama; Bill Clinton is a a big fan of mine –he loved that I played a hooker in One for the Money,” she said.

Shepherd has been in the news a great deal lately.  She recently filed for divorce from her husband Lamar Sally after two years of marriage. She also got attention for stating in legal documents that she wants nothing to do with the surrogate child that they’ve legally contracted to bring into the world.

How do you think things will play out for Shepherd?

Here is what Underwood had to say about Shepherd’s exit from the show.

    I feel sad for her as she will upright but again will bare another scar . Each scar makes you stronger and I have to believe that as life can be cruel.

    I will pray for her. She will get THROUGH all if this and come out better than she was before. One door closes and God opens a window and pours out his blessings. when she married Lamar Sally I had a feeling it wasn’t going to work out he didn’t come across very sincere

    I hope there’s lessons to be learned thru experience for Ms. Shepard. Sometimes we put SELF before GOD. I’m surprised she lasted as long as she did on “the view”. She got paid a pretty penny for 7 years and she’s also the host of another game show. She’ll get work again, however, maybe she needs to sit down and rest and get her LIFE back on the RIGHT PATH for her biological child’s sake..and yes, she needs to take the baby that she agreed upon thru a surrogate mother, that Child was given to her as a GIFT from GOD, she should NOT MAKE the MISTAKE and let MONEY be the reason to not take the baby at this point- due to be born next month…this(IMPO) would be a BIG MISTAKE before GOD.

    I see how utterly confused both of these “friends” are. Sheppard was NOT acting in the capacity of a stand up comedian on the View…she was a Co-host. SMH…

    Sherri will be fine. I’m trying to figure out what woman is going to take a baby that is biologically the child of the man you’re divorcing, who by all accounts you can’t stand as your own? He’s trying to get money from you to take care of his baby and you must accept that? Absolutely not. Granted the baby was to be “theirs” but who is to say he would not have walked off and taken “his” baby? And since it’s only “his” he would have been within his rights. Let that man take his baby and move on. Lesson: Be sure you can afford to take care of a baby on your own,without having to force somebody else to pay for it. That’s for women as well as men.

    Some of these women who have become successful. And are still unmarried eventually panic, and snatch a man off the street hopeing he’ll become a good husband, however it dosen’t happen, and now he has access to her assets. So it would have been better to have him spend the night a few more times. He dosen’t have to Have as many Assets as you do, but he should have some evidence of success, otherwise do him a couple of times and move on. However many women fall for their “Front”, rather than their Substance.
