Sherri Shepherd has been dreaming of being on Dancing With the Stars for years. On The View, she talked about every episode with Elisabeth Hasselbeck each season while Whoopi rolled her eyes. Now she is finally on the show and paired with Val Chmerkovskiy the younger, calmer brother of Maksim. So when she showed up to the second official day of practice Wednesday, she was sporting her dancing heels and a spangly silver dress. She was also camera-ready with full makeup and hair. The other ladies arrived much more casually in sweats and a ponytail. To be fair, Sherri probably sleeps in high heels. She’s only 5’1″ and lives in heels so dancing in them should not be a problem for her. She is at a small disadvantage because she will continue to host The View three days a week while performing on Dancing with the Stars. Maksim and Melissa Gilbert were at least one team that started practicing a day or so early. If you are expecting Sherri to go early though, make no mistake, Sherri is in it to win it. Sherri’s trip to LA for the show was not an easy one. Sherri and her son Jeffery were in JFK on the way to LA when the airport terminal they were in was shut down due to a security breach. Sherri of course tweeted the entire event hilariously. Sherri was back on The View today and will be on the show Wednesday through Friday while working on DWTS.
