So in typical Wendy Williams fashion, she threw a little shade at Sherri Shepherd and her “Dancing with the Stars” performance yesterday, except Wendy didn’t really have anything to say about how Sherri danced, she was more concerned with how she acted.
After questioning why Sherri “let them [put] you in all that material,” referring to her dress for Monday night’s competition, and saying Sherri absolutely will not win the competition, Wendy decided to drop a little advice, being an ex-DWTS cast member herself. Here’s what she said:
“I have to say, Sherri, You know when you’re talking to the camera and not doing the dancing…Sherri, you were giving them everything they want to see from us black girls—that loud talk, the gaping laugh…don’t let them do that to you, Sherri.”
Wendy added that the producers of the show tried to pressure her to act like that when she was a contestant.
“I explained to you guys what they actually wanted from me. They wanted me to be all black girl—’oh no she did, oh yes she, oh no. Tony—you is not going to make me dance like that no mo!’ Really? I’m not that girl.”
Since I don’t watch Dancing with the Stars, I tried to find to find a clip to prove Wendy’s point, and while I kind of see where she’s coming from, I honestly don’t think Sherri seems any different from how she is on “The View.” I don’t know what that means exactly, but I’m thinking Wendy might just be hatin’ (again).
Check out this clip of Sherri’s interview after her performance and tell us what you think. Does Wendy have a point?
