Sherri Shepherd is co-hosting the Tom Joyner Morning Show every Thursday and as usual, she has plenty to say about life, love and current events. The actress/comedian, who recently appeared in the Chris Rock movie Top Five, has had her fair share of relatable experiences – from dealing with Type 2 diabetes and losing weight to her two divorces, custody battles and even job-related issues. Here’s her latest take on some of the issues that have come up this week.
On Christian Prenups: Christians believe you’re not supposed to do a prenup. They don’t talk about prenups.They talk about dowries in the bible, but not prenups because it’s in the event of divorce. They believe you are setting yourself up for divorce if you get a prenup. You’re going into the marriage believing and having faith that you’re making a covenant that will last forever until you both go. Is is about money or do you really love this person?
On Morning Show Exhaustion: I take my hat and my wig off to J. Anthony Brown because you know it’s serious coming in this early in the morning. You got to program your body. Even if I close my eyes and rub my eyeballs back and forth, I can feel the veins behind my eyeballs.
On Kadeem Hardison and Girlfriend Code:
He’s back on ABC Family. He plays a spy on KC Undercover. I was crushing on him. But I know Chante Moore and I know they’re not together anymore but Girlfriend Code says that you can’t go there.
On competing against Gladys Knight on Dancing With The Stars.
She fooled everybody. She could dance but every week she said ‘I don’t think I’m going to dance this week. My knee – I’m going to go home.’ So everybody banked on Gladys Knight going home and every week she got out there and jammed. She stayed until the 6th or 7th week. She rehearsed like 9 hours a day. Her feet were blistered up and she still got out there and jammed.
