Sherri Shepherd isn’t the only was disappointed by her surprising elimination on last night’s Dancing with the Stars: The View co-host says that her 6-year-old son Jeffrey is also “pretty devastated.”
“He loved being there,” Sherri says of her son, who joined her on the set each week. “He also doesn’t quite understand that they won’t be going back.”
Despite their sadness, Sherri, who was partnered with dance pro Val Chmerkovskiy, says that she learned a lot from her brief time on the show.
“I learned I have stage fright, and have to get past it,” she admits. “And I was scared every week, and I learned to dance scared.”
Last month the 44-year-old mom revealed that she and her husband Lamar ‘Sal’ Sally are hoping to add to their family.
