“Extra’s” Maria Menounos caught up with Sherri Shepherd to talk about her new book, “Plan D: How to Lose Weight and Beat Diabetes.”
“My mom was 41 when she passed away from diabetes complications,” "The View" host explained. “Way too young… She didn’t know a lot about the disease. Primarily because my family -- everyone in my family has it -- called it 'The Sugar,' which is so cute, but there is no urgency.
The hot topic Wednesday morning on "The View" was co-host Sherri Shepherd's shocking exit on Tuesday night's "Dancing with the Stars."
At the first axing ceremony on "Dancing with the Stars" on Tuesday, "Extra's" Maria Menounos was nervous, saying, "I felt like I was at the Miss America pageant."
"The View" co-host Sherri Shepherd joked, "I almost Tim Tebowed, except my dress was too tight to get on the ground!"
"Extra's" Maria Menounos will compete on season 14 of "Dancing with the Stars," premiering Monday, March 19 at 8 PM on ABC!
Maria Menounos, 33, will be partnered with three-time champ Derek Hough. Menounos took to her Twitter to post this pic with her new partner with the caption, "Yay!!!!"
"Extra" was on the set of "The View" to discuss the Chaz Bono on "Dancing with the Stars" controversy, and the ladies all agree: he's a star, he wants to dance... end of story!
The new season of "The View" welcomed back Sherri Shepherd and Joy Behar -- who both said "I do" this past summer. Joy, who tied the knot with her live-in boyfriend of 29 years, stammered, "I got m-m-married!"
The gals of "The View" will be adding a new guest voice to their show, "Octomom" Nadia Suleman, reports AP.
Suleman joins hosts Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd on Wednesday's show, airing 11 AM ET.
Sparks should fly, since Suleman has been a hot topic on the show in the past.
The mother of 14 started her 15 minutes of fame last year, when she gave birth to eight children conceived through in vitro fertilization. She has been criticized in the past for having such a large family while living on public assistance and creating a chaotic environment for the octuplets, who just celebrated their first birthday in January.
"The Tyra Banks Show" and "Rachael Ray" nabbed awards in the talk show categories at the Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday.
The bubbly chef-turned-host won the "Entertainment" talk show prize for "Rachael Ray," ending Ellen DeGeneres' three-year reign in the category, while Tyra Banks won an Emmy for her show in the "Informative" category.
Ray -- along with Ellen, Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa -- was up for an Emmy for Best Talk Show Host, but Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters beat the others and took home statuettes for their work on "The View." Funny gal Ellen has won the hostess Emmy for the past four years.
Tell "Extra" -- Did the Emmys pick the right winners?
"The View's" Sherri Shepherd is down 41 pounds -- and showing off her new body!
"I lost weight last year and started gaining it back because I wasn't exercising," Sherri explains in the new issue of OK! magazine. "I said to my producer, 'Why don't we do something where I tell people 'Let's do it together!'... Then all of sudden I had all these people doing it with me. I'd tweet about going to the gym and how hard it was, and followers would write and say, 'Sherri, I've lost two pounds!' I thought, 'Okay, people are getting into this.'"
The television hostess hit the gym and began eating five meals a day delivered by Fresh Diet, which is favored by celebrities like Sandra Bullock and Jen Aniston.
