Ever since comedienne and “The Talk” co-host Sheryl Underwood shared her conference call story with the world, she’s had to deal with Laura Hayes, Sommore and Adele Givens calling her story an exaggeration, or flat out “bullsh*t.” Just last week, Sommore said that the comedienne has ulterior motives and is a phony.  So recently, while on the red carpet at the Soul Train Awards, the Jasmine Brand talked to Sheryl Underwood about the drama, and she decided to clear some things up. I’m not going to pretend like everything she said made sense, but here you go:

Well you know what? I tell you what…God don’t make mistakes, so you just gotta get ready. When the Lord tells you what to do….One thing I should have said was, ‘If I ever hurt these ladies or anybody else, I’m asking for forgiveness. Now there’s been some dispute…I think everybody got a right to their recollection, and then what normally happens is, do you want to go tit for tat, or do you want to move on to where you supposed to be? At the end of the day, what I was really trying to show was first, that there was a powerful group of women who had a top tour like the “Kings of Comedy.” Second, that when you hear things being said, even if you hear them on a conference call, or you hear them anywhere, what you need to do is, take what the lesson is, and perfect yourself, so that’s what I did… If somebody says “Well maybe you need to accouterment yourself, maybe somebody put their foot in your face and beat it to death, and get snatched with some undergarments”– and everybody knows this is not my hair, but this is what we do. Don’t come out the house looking any kinda way. Well, when you hear anything being said about you in any way, first, listen to it. Then correct it, and then go where God wants you to go. I’d love to work with anybody, my job is to help put money in people’s pocket, and the Lord has blessed me with Sheryl Underwood radio,The Talk,” touring. How does somebody like me that asked the Lord to please stop making Vodka so delicious, end up with the Bishop TD Jakes on a comedy tour? That’s because God is moving me around, and Vodka is delicious, and so is Moscato.

Yeah, I told you it didn’t all make sense, but you get the point: What she remembers about their conversation pushed her to better herself and helped her to get where she is now. That’s all that matters, right? Check out her interview in full below.
