It’s Just Hair! Sheryl Underwood Yanks Off Her Wig On National Television

Funny lady Sheryl Underwood has always been an “aunt in my head.” She always seems so cool, down to earth and downright real, which is why it didn’t come as a surprise when we learned that homegirl yanked her wig off on national television just to get a little chuckle.

I know you’re probably wondering, “What on earth possessed her to do that?” So, allow me to fill you in on how it all went down. On last Friday’s episode of daytime television show, The Talk Sheryl and her cohorts Aisha Tyler, Sarah Gilbert and Julie Chen were interviewing actress Kristin Chenoweth, along with their guest co-host, Donny Osmond. During the interview the ladies got to chatting it up about hair extensions and making fun their “enhanced,” luxurious locs. In the heat of the moment, Julie took off one of her hair pieces and began waving it around. As everyone broke out in a fit of laughter, Kristin and Aisha did the same, joining in on the fun. Julie then looked at Sheryl, egging her on and chanting, “Do it! Do It.” Sheryl eventually pulled back her wig, exposing her greying hair.

In other The Talk news, according to Always A List, back in January when it was announced that the daytime talk show would be renewed for a third season, it was also revealed that the CBS show had been doing really well as far as ratings are concerned. With an average of 2.35 million viewers, which is an 11% increase from the previous year.

Keep up the good work, ladies!

  • I get why Sheryl would wear wigs…they’re a quick alternative so that we (women) don’t have to constantly damage our hair. However, Sheryl looks great either way. Her spirit is always shining through.

    I wish Black women wouldn’t do stuff like this. It’s so tacky.

    • nah

      Thank you. What was the point anyway?

  • jjac401

    Yep – She looks good without that wig.

  • no she has hair. everyone can’t wear a wig. more power to her. You go Sheryl!!

  • They did this before on another episode where they had on no makeup, extensions, or physical enhancements. They were just on the show in their robes.

  • D.Wmson

    She looked just fine under the wig!

  • Caramel

    Right! Its just hair . . . . women of all races where extensions . . . nothing but an accessory for variety . . . its not that serious.

  • Her real hair looks just fine…actually prettier

  • i kinda like her greying hair much better

  • Why doesn’t she braid her hair under her wigs?

    • how is someone going to thumbs down this? stupid. it’s not a criticism, it would just make more sense for her to keep it braided since she wears wigs most of the time.

      • Thaalia

        Maybe she does on the regular but just didnt feel like it?
