We just confirmed that the rumors we heard for the past couple of weeks are true! Comedic actress and The View co-host Sherri Shepherd officially got married! Here is the complete article via People.com: Joy Behar isn't the only newlywed on The View. Co-host Sherri Shepherd and fiancĂŠ Lamar Sally tied the knot at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago, her hometown, on Saturday, her rep confirmed to PEOPLE. Shepherd's eight bridesmaids included The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Niecy Nash and Community's Yvette Nicole Brown, and her 6-year-old son Jeffrey walked her down the aisle. After using her wedding dress as her carry-on luggage on a flight from New York City to Chicago earlier in the week, Shepherd, 44, spent the days leading up to the wedding battling nerves and fitting in a few last-minute workouts at her hotel gym, according to her Twitter musings.
She even Tweeted nearly up until it was time to walk down the aisle, writing on Saturday afternoon, "Sitting in the room in my gown waiting for Sal& groomsmen to take their pics... can't let him see me b4 the wedding... but I'm bored as heck." Right before the ceremony she Tweeted: "What happens when you are in your wedding dress and you have to tinkle? Uh-oh!" The 30 Rock actress devoted months to trying to get in shape for her big day, which will air as a special on the Style network on Sept 13. Shepherd, who calls her husband "Sal," had been prepping for a large ceremony since getting engaged in December. "His family's from Detroit and mine are from Chicago, and we've got really close friends that we want to share the day with," she told PEOPLE as she planned her nuptials. "So, it's going to be pretty big."
L-R: David E. Talbert, Morris Chestnut, Michelle Williams, Brian White, Lavell Crawford & Tony Rock We just discovered a new EXCLUSIVE- we hear that Playwright and Film director David E. Talbert is casting now for the live taping of two of his top grossing plays - What Goes Around Comes Around and A Fool And His Money. Both will be filmed in front of a live audience this September in Los Angeles and then released on DVD and aired on Black Entertainment Television. If you are a fan of his plays, that you know that Talbert loves to add comedians in his plays (as he did Esau McGraw and Tiffany Haddish in his last play that toured a couple of months ago titled What My Husband Doesn't Know that starred Morris Chestnut or Brian White and Michelle Williams). Anyway, it looks like comedians Lavell Crawford and Tony Rock are locked in for What Goes Around Comes Around. We had a chance to speak to Talbert and he was excited to finally get a chance to work with both Crawford and Rock. "I've been a big fan of both those guys for years. To me, Lavell Crawford is one of the funniest in the game and Tony Rock has me in stitches every time I see him live. He's definitely someone I feel is next up." Stay tuned for more details here as we give you all of the info about his up and coming projects and new tour schedule that he is planning to launch for the fall.
