Did I miss that memo? *** When it helps your show surpass Oprah’s in the Nielsens! LOL Log in to Reply season1217 December 6, 2008 Smart just doesn’t have to be about intelligence. I think the women are on the list more for their cunningness and shrewdness. You may not like them but you talk about them and ratings have been the highest that they have ever been. So you have to give them ALL credit for something. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens December 6, 2008 Sherri read “Star Jones for Dummies” before audition. Smartest buy she ever made at Barnes and Noble.

Sherri even admitted that she didnt know the earth was round. http://www.nornsisland.com Log in to Reply season1217 December 7, 2008 It’s not as stupid to not know the earth is round as it is to admit to not knowing that the earth is round. Sometimes you just got to play it off. LOL! Log in to Reply SusieQ December 7, 2008 lmao!!! Well, obviously EW has some of the smartest writers in entertainment too!
