Sherri Shepherd doesn’t think The View ladies were too hard on Paris Hilton

A few weeks ago, a journalist asked The View host Sherri Shepherd if she thought The View ladies were too hard on Paris Hilton when she was being interviewed on the show. Below is Mrs. Sherri’s response:

“You come on The View, you know what you’re going to get! Were we too hard on Paris Hilton? She had made the statements to Barbara about helping the women in prison and I think Barbara [Walters] asked her. Sometimes we have to be held accountable. I think Barbara just asked her that and, no, I don’t think we were too hard on her. I didn’t see her crying. She’s a big girl. If you want to come on The View and sit on the couch with four ladies, five ladies then you know what you are going to get. She didn’t walk out with tears in her eyes. I think she was okay.”

A misinformed journalist also asked her on her thoughts about Paris blaming Oxygen for “low” ratings, when in fact, Paris has never directly blamed the network! But here’s what Sherri said:

“She blamed her network? You know what? This is the landscape we’re in. You got a lot of competition. You’ve got the Kardashians, the Playboy girl, Kendra [Wilkinson-Baskett]. Everyone has a reality show, so you have to do something different.”

Okay, let me be upfront here and vent that I absolutely can NOT stand Sherri Sheperd!

IMO first, she is really, really stupid!!! Sje never has anythingoriginal to say about any subject, much less anything intelligent or insightful. Second, I find her to be nothing but a right-wing, holier-than-thou, born-again christian who uses her version of christianity to judge other people – especially young girls that she deems as “bad-girls.”

She is typical of religous fanatics that make and adhere to strict man-made rules whereby they can 1) feed their own egos and exault themselves as chosen ones and true followers of the only correct religion, 2) sit in self-righteous judgement of others and 3) never think for themselves, but just immerse themselves in and parrot back religous instruction.

Sherri Sheperd never thinks for herself, much less has any true empathy for others. Her and the other View ladies bash Paris (just like other people do) because she’s an easy target.

While i think paris is gracious under attack, I do think she could learn to stick up for herself more during such an attack. She could learn to push the haters back on their heels in a smart, clever, disarming way that will put people on notice that paris will no longer be the go-to punching bag for people who want to exault themselves in the public eye at her expense.


okay I feel better now.

I agree with you 100%

Also, both Paris and her mom mentioned on the new show that they are not confrontational.

It’s difficult for a woman in business.

When Trump blows up and starts cussing up a streak people overlook it. When Paris makes a remark about anything, they call her a bitch.
