Sherri Shepherd is engaged!
The View's Sherri Shepherd is engaged. Yes, my friends, we are about to hear less about Barbara's dog and Elisabeth's kids in favor of Sherri Shepherd's wedding plans. Her fiance, TV writer Lamar Sally, even asked her son's permission. Aww.
We're all happy for View co-host Sherri Shepherd. She's engaged!
People magazine is reporting that TV writer Lamar Sally proposed to Shepherd, his girlfriend of a year, in L.A. after a trip to San Diego. Her home was decorated, her favorite candies (M&M's) were on the table and so was a special little box.
He first obtained permission from the man of her house, her five-year-old son Jeffrey.
The two were introduced by the fiance of Shepherd's friend, former Dancing With the Stars contestant Niecy Nash. The couple is planning an August wedding in Chicago.
So what does that mean for us?
Well, if The View's history is any indicator, we're in for segment after segment of things like, "How to Lose Weight Before Your Big Day," "Tone Those Arms to Look Good in Your Dress" and "The Viewers Choose Sherri's Wedding Day Wig."
We tease with love, Sherri. Congrats to you both from SheKnows.
