What can I say? My Curvy Diva's are making history on
television this fall!!!!
Actress/Comedienne & View Co-Host Sherri Shepherd's new series "Sherri" broke records as the HIGHEST RATED COMEDY DEBUT IN THE HISTORY OF THE LIFETIME NETWORK!!! You GO Girl!!!
Btw...I had the pleasure (and I use that word reluctantly...lol) to attend an taping of the Sherri show on Friday night with my homie Mia Amber. Although I enjoyed the taping....I probably will add sit-com tapings to the list of THINGS THAT I WILL NEVER DO AGAIN!!!! LOL....the taping itself wasn't bad, they provided us with provisions and amenities (i.e. cookies, twizzlers, sandwiches and bottled water) the warm up comedian was EXCELLENT at his job and kept the audience in stitches during the down time. This dude had folks singing, calling their families on the telephone and putting them on speaker...lol...it was HILARIOUS!!...it was the SITTING that was killing me....5 HOURS in the same spot just doesn't work well for me and I realized that going into hour 3 as I got restless as hell (lol). Other than the sitting part, I enjoyed seeing my friends (I sat next to Tonya Giddens, Suzette Banzo & Tiffany Braxton Belvin and Cheetah Girl's author Deborah Gregory was in the audience as well. I think the best part of the whole night for me was when I went to greet Sherri on the reception line, home girl recognized me from MFC and told me that she reads MY blogs (Go Sharon! Go Sharon!!). Definitely words I needed to hear....Mama got me RE-Inspired BIG TIME!!! Thanks Sherri! And continued success with the show!
The Sherri Show airs Tuesdays at 10:00pm EST on Lifetime
