Sherri Shepherd: "Flat Earth" Flub a "Senior Brain-Poopy Moment"

View co-host Sherri Shepherd explains why she made comments the other day that she wasn't sure whether or not the earth is flat. Shepherd says she was nervous after having to defend her religious beliefs, which are firmly in denial of evolution.

  1. Of course she's nervous -- everything she believes in is a fucking lie. Lazy idiot.

  2. I also hear that Sherri is a member of PETA = People Eating Tasty Animals.

  3. Why is she even telling us her opinions? The Bible is very clear that women should be subservient to men.

  4. Still a total boob. You're a boob, lady! And your god is fiction!

  5. Bitch! Please!

    She's a stand up comedian by profession and got nervous sitting around a table trying to answer a question any 2nd grader would know???

    Bitch! Please!

  6. One ridiculous statement after another. Way to go, Sherri! Tell her, HOMER, tell her!

  7. Elizabeth is thrilled there's another dumbass on the show.

  8. I am sure Barbara Walters has lawyers looking for an escape clause in Sherri's contract as I type.

  9. Does the View actually seat their hosts based on their political views - from Left to Far Right? Terrible show, but I do love me some Whoopi.

  10. Too many Twinkies in school girl, and as far as "defending" her "religious" views, could she elaborate on one of the 10 Commandments for me, gluttony??? These alleged Christians are such hypocrites with their picking and choosing what to follow from their good book. And, why would she be "afraid?" I thought they were supposed to witness being Christian all this stuff and be proud?

  11. It's nice of towleroad to post her explanation for her previous idiotic statement.

    Gosh, this show is always reinforcing stereotypes about airheaded women.

  12. Oh, *please*, bitch! Just because you have kids, and you think about your kids, does that mean that's an excuse to completely block out everything else that's going on around you? If your job is to be on TV and discuss random topics, shouldn't you be doing your job at that moment? Try using that excuse in an office situation and you'll get the old "leave your private life at home or you're fired" line!

  14. Sebastien,
    Gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins, not one of the 10 Commandments. And, unless she's Catholic (and she doesn't sound like she is), she doesn't even believe in the seven deadly sins.

  15. I can totally understand why she got stumped by the question. The earth being round is a very difficult concept to wrap your head around. After all, when you look out your window, what do you see? Flat earth! One would have to have travelled into outer space and looked back toward the earth to see that it is really round. Of course the question confused her. It is a very, very difficult concept. Stop hating on her already!

  16. she used to be an innocuous, mediocre, performer. now she's just an annoying xtian trying to defend the indefensible. no wonder she froze up. that tends to happen when people get called on their crap.

  17. What was really scary about her remarks yesterday was that she said roughly that she didn't have any books in her home, nor did it occur to her to go online to find the answer. Not to mention she wasn't brave enough to ask her co-hosts what the answer was. However, this women was somehow smart enough to land a cushy TV job and will probably become a millionaire while we geniuses type away fruitlessly on TR. Hmmmmm....

  18. I think she's funny. She happens to lighten the mood there, and god knows they can use some of that. Why does everything have to be so f--ing serious all the time? It's not "National Geographic" for god's sake.

    Plus she reminds me of one of my really good friends, who, granted, does have some pretty serious issues (and drinking / drug problems as well), but that just adds to her charm I think. Reality can be a bitch, and so can the gays...just look at all the comments each day here.

  19. The shocking thing to me is not that a religiuos nutcase would refuse to accept scientific facts such as the shape of the earth or evolution. The shocking thing was how fucking inarticulate Baba Wawa was and how little Woopie knew about evolution! She linked the shape of the earth with evolution which of course says nothing about it.

  20. Yeah, I agree with NIC. She's just stupid and she's trying to defend ignorance.

  22. What's with the people here saying she is fat? That isn't the issue. The issue is she has strict/contradictory/ignorant beliefs. Why the Twinkie and fat comments?

  23. Thanks for the heads up Jeff, I guess I should have paid attention when forced to go to church as a kid!

  24. Damn.... someone pulled the video from YouTube.

  25. Jordan: "Why does everything have to be so f--ing serious all the time? It's not "National Geographic" for god's sake."

    1. This is not a commedy show (not intentionally so at least)
    2. They were discussing a serious question: evolution
    3. One does not need to watch National Geographic's channel to know the world isn't flat, despite what the bible tells us.
