Today on “The View,” Sherri Shepherd talked about her job as a red carpet correspondent during the Oscars this past Sunday night and casually mentioned how many of the Hollywood elite mistook her for Octavia Spencer. SERIOUSLY?!
From today's "View":
Said Sherri: "So many people would say to me on the red carpet, 'do you think you're gonna win tonight?' They thought I was Octavia Spencer!" Celebrities -- including Bo Derek and John Corbett -- apparently kept approaching Sherri to talk about her nomination and she said she didn't have the heart to tell them that she wasn't Octavia. I can't even believe this.
For those who are confused about the difference between the two very different women, let us help:
