*Sherri Shepherd recently opened up about a lesson leading to her success. Talking to Page Six, she said, “Yeah, I went to jail for not paying my tickets. At the time I did not think being in jail was a good moment, but looking back I learned to pay all my bills.”
The former co-host of “The View” served eight days for owing $10,000 in unpaid moving violations in the early ’90s at the beginning of her showbiz career.
“One of the girls in jail said, ‘Leave Sherri alone because she’s gonna be somebody and we are going to be here for the rest of our lives,’ literally that’s what she used to say,” the star told us regarding her time behind bars.
“Her name was Shelby and she came to both my weddings when I got out. But sometimes people see things in you that you don’t see yourself, and when she said those words, ‘Sherri is gonna be somebody,’ I never thought that for myself. So I just knew that something was going to happen.”

After filling in for Wendy Williams on her show, the daytime TV host premiered her latest eponymous show last fall via Debmar-Mercury production.
When Williams could not return to her show due to various health issues, the hit series was axed after 13 seasons, and Shepherd’s show was launched.
There was some bad blood when Shepherd took over. Williams said, “I like her, but I won’t be watching her because I know what she’s going to be doing, and that’s really not my thing.” She further told her rapper pal Fat Joe via Instagram Live in May of 2022: “I love being on my own show, and I love that people love to watch it all the time.”
However, Shepherd said of Williams, “Wendy is the queen… There’s something for everybody.”
Shepherd and Jawn Murray, her executive producer, were seen attending an event called “Collabs See Your Power,” hosted by Shelia and Germaine Leftridge, at 48 Lounge.
