Sherri Shepherd Says She’s “Depressed” Elisabeth Hasselbeck Is Leaving
Sherri Shepherd was conspicuously absent from The View table on Wednesday when Elisabeth Hasselbeck bid adieu to the show after 10 years. TMZ was kind enough (heh) to catch up with her at LAX and asked about her feelings on the issue.
“Tears… Yay…I’m really depressed today because Elisabeth is leaving and I wasn’t there,” she said.
She also seemed to be dropping hints about who might take her place, saying that Jenny McCarthy would “cause some stuff.” Brooke Shields is also said to be in the running.
We spoke with Shepherd on the red carpet for the pre-BET Awards party, in which she said she thought the show could use a Latina. Eva Longoria and La La were a couple of suggestions.
There are three seats to fill, so there could be room for both a Latina and Jenny McCarthy/Brooke Shields (though neither of the last two are interesting to us at all). Separately, Sherri says in the TMZ video that she’d been off filming a Chris Rock movie. This article about Rosario Dawson’s hair cut says she’s working on a Chris Rock film as well, the Untitled Chris Rock Project. Maybe the same movie?
