C’Mon Now: Black Celebrities That White Folks Mistake For One Another (But They DON’T Look Alike…)

Sherri Shepherd, Octavia Spencer and Yvette Nicole Brown

When taking part on the show, “Watch What Happens: Live” a caller phoned in for the opportunity to ask Yvette Nicole Brown, star of the show, “Community,” a question about her film work. The inquiry went a little something like this: “My question is for Yvette. …What was it like working on the movie ‘The Help’?” Of course, they had Brown confused with Octavia Spencer, who won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in the movie. Luckily, Brown took the confusion in stride saying, “You know, it was great to watch ‘The Help,’ because I wasn’t in it.” A big laugh, “The View” co-host, Sherri Shepherd, was also a guest on the show, and the two women joked about being confused for each other all the time. Probably because they’re all heavier set black women, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they bear any bit of a resemblance to one another whatsoever…
