HomeTVThe ViewSherri Shepherd The Inspiration For Sitcom Luke Kerr March 4, 2009 The View 9 Comments Sherri Shepherd has provided countless laughs – some intended, some not – since joining The View. Some of those laughs have come from the re-telling of how she dealt with her husband’s philandering. Well, if those stories have ever made you think to yourself "this would make a great sitcom" you are in luck. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sherri will star in multi-camera sitcom loosely-based on her life and will revolve around "a woman who contends with her husband’s infidelity and his illegitimate child when she allows the child and mother to move in with them." The series will air on Lifetime. This isn’t the first time a morning talk show host has pulled double duty. Many Daytime Confidential readers probably remember Kelly Ripa’s (ex-Hayley, All My Children) hilarious Hope and Faith. That series lasted three seasons. Would you watch a series based on Sherri’s life? 9 Responses sb_fan March 4, 2009 I can’t really say, I will watch the series premiere and if it sits well with me, then why not?

Log in to Reply season1217 March 4, 2009 a woman who contends with her husband’s infidelity and his illegitimate child when she allows the child and mother to move in with them. That’s not funny! Log in to Reply sb_fan March 4, 2009 lol @ Jamey, it does seem a tad bit unrealistic, doesn’t it? Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens March 4, 2009 This sounds an awful lot like ‘Reba’, with the wife and the ho becoming buddy-buddy. Why not call it "Worst Nightmare Come True?" Log in to Reply season1217 March 4, 2009 At least Reba didn’t have them shacked up in her house. On that show the other woman wanted to be BFF’s with Reba but she wasn’t having it. I don’t know what kind of mess is going on here. Log in to Reply Revafan001 March 4, 2009 I will give it a try. But it sound beyond stupid. I would rather watc Lost or Ugly Betty! LOL Jamey!!!! Log in to Reply SusieQ March 4, 2009 Will there be a whole episode based on her thinking the world is flat? Log in to Reply Dariclone March 6, 2009 Why does she need a sitcom again?
