Sherri Shepherd’s Past

Posted by Media Outrage on July 23, 2008

The View’s Sherri Shepherd who is known for saying a thing or two that makes you go hmmm, did an interview with Christian Magazine “Precious Times” and had some interesting things to say about her past.

Via Eurweb:

Shepherd tells the Christian women’s magazine “Precious Times” that she had such low self-esteem at one point that she was “sleeping with a lot of guys and had more abortions than I would like to count.”

Having a sister caught up in drug addiction only underscored Sherri’s feelings of being worthless.

Shepherd said, “My sister was heavy into drugs, and we would have to go and get her from crack houses. I felt if someone killed me, it wouldn’t even make a difference.” But that changed when Shepherd started living for Jesus. “God showed me that it would make a difference,” she says.

Shepherd has often talked about how her Christian faith carried her through her difficult divorce from Jeff Tarpley, whom Sherri says got another woman pregnant.

Now that she’s on “The View,” Sherri wishes she was a better evangelist.

“Oh, sometimes I say, ‘Lord, Juanita Bynum or Joyce Meyer would be so good at this table. They could lay hands on Barbara Walters and get her saved,'”Shepherd told “Precious Times.”

Mediaoutrage– There it was! That signature classic Sherri Shepherd moment not that not laying hands on your boss LOL. “Oh, sometimes I say, ‘Lord, Juanita Bynum or Joyce Meyer would be so good at this table. They could lay hands on Barbara Walters and get her saved,'” LOL Gotta love her.
