Looks like 2011 might be the year of engagements. View host Sherri Shepherd has announced that she is officially engaged to TV writer Lamar Sally . Sally proposed on Dec. 26 after asking Shepherd’s 5-year-old son, Jeffrey, for permission.
Shepherd’s rep reports: “Upon arriving back to Lamar’s home in Los Angeles from a trip to San Diego, Sherri was surprised to find their accommodations had been decorated with lights by one of Sal’s best friends, her dog was wearing a Santa beard and hat, and, in the middle of a dish of Sherri’s favorite but forbidden M&M’s (she is diabetic), was a tiny little box.”
Shepherd has been pretty mum about this relationship. She was linked to WWE wrestler MVP a while back. Sally and She[herd have been dating for a little more than a year and were introduced by Niecy Nash. The two plan to wed sometime in August.
Gabourey Sidibe made her first appearance on The View this past week. Sidibe told the ladies of The View that she was terrified of Mike Tyson when she saw him for the first time at The Golden Globes.
Her explanation as to why she’s afraid of him is why Gabby is our quote of the week.
“Face tattoos say, ‘I’ve gone as far as I want to go in society, and in fact, I think I’m going to take a few steps back.’”
Gabourey Sidibe is so adorable and we agree! Check out her full interview below.
Beyonce. Is. Fierce!
Seems like no other woman in the industry (aside from Lady GaGa) can top or stop Beyoncé. The sultry diva hosted an all-star launch party for her new fragrance ‘Heat’ in NYC last night. Beyoncé had the outside windows of the venue lit-up in red to commemorate the launch. Beyoncé also requested that her guests wear black, so she could stand out in her red dress. Can you guess which attendee didn’t follow the rules?
