The View's Sherri Shepherd Eliminated on Dancing with the Stars! Can Daytime Performers Not Catch a Break?

Daytime and The View  favorite Sherri Shepherd, was sent home Tuesday night in the most shocking elimination of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Shepherd, called the experience an “amazing adventure” and urged her fans to take risks and keep challenging themselves.   “If you don’t go towards the thing you fear, you won’t be able to say you lived. Even if you fail, I got voted off, I wanted the ride to continue, but I got to say, I did it,” Shepherd said today on Good Morning America, “The thing that you fear in your stomach … run towards it. I absolutely believe that.”

The View co-host had been a long-time fan of the ABC ballroom dance show and campaigned to be a contestant on season 14.  She had earned 21 points – the second-lowest score of the night – for her tango on Monday.  Judges told her it wasn’t sharp enough and lacked her usual spark.  Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower were the other couple in danger of elimination, despite earning the second-highest scores on Monday night’s show.  So, nothing makes sense, does it?  But it does, when you take into account the viewers votes and that is where once again it seems like if you are a daytime performer these days you get a bad rap.  Former GH and B&B star, Jack Wagner was voted out last week and now Shepherd!

Shepherd’s dance Partner Val Chmerkovskiy joked that their elimination was part of a larger ABC “conspiracy.”   As last night’s result show progressed, Gladys Knight – who had the lowest score coming out of Monday’s performance show, and Gavin DeGraw, who has been in jeopardy of going home several times this season were announced to be safe!  “I just want to say thank you for letting me live a dream I’ve always had,” Shepherd said Tuesday night, right after she learned her fate.

i never understood the voting process on this show – i can see the judges scores but what about the votes from the texts, the phones, & abc.com?? we never know how many votes came from those sources so how can we be sure if any of the eliminations are fair – i truly believe that tptb & tiic eliminate who ever they want to………….

I don’t care for Sherri Shepherd..Because whenever I watched The View she seems to run the show…She talks the most out of anyone else on the show…And she sure likes to eat when they have a cooking segment…IShe isn’t my cup of tea….I really couldn’t say if daytime performerss are getting a raw deal…Don’t watch dancing with the stars every time it is on….I watch it here and there…………I think it has alot to do with their dancing….If you are good you stay & go if you are not…..This is just my opinion….Others might differ………….

I agree; I can’t stand her. I don’t think she runs the show though. She’s always opening her mouth and something stupid comes out of it.

In my opinion, Sherri doesn’t talk enough, (that’s Elizabeth and Whoopie who talk to much) nor does Sherri talk about the right things or stay on track enough. She is far from the one who runs the show. That would be Whoopie who goes to commericial when the other’s aren’t agreeing with her and Elizabeth who runs her trap, a million miles a minute. And one point, Sherri did’t talk enough. She talks far more now, BUT she can go off track at times. Bring back Star, and see if Ms. Whoopie is going to ” talk Star down” like she talks Sherri down. No way in Hell. Star is has far more finess and education to tolerate that.

Well I am commenting only ion what I see on The View…They all talk at once….Whenever I watched The View Sherri was doing a lot of the talking..They all talk a lot……………Don’t watch the view much anymore………Don’t care for Elizabeth especially…Didn’t care for Star Jones either…………….She left in bad terms with the show..I know the ladies where talking about it after it happened…I saw it that day..I like Whoppi & the other woman with the red hair…Just those two..Again don’t watch it anymore….Lost interest…Elizabeth your right does talk a lot..She was on survior The t v show one year..She was a back stabber on that show…I know I watched it…

What I never liked about the view is that they all talk at once…..This show has been on toooooooooo long…They have lost a viewer (ME)….Doesn’t interest me anymore…Haven’t watched for at least 2-3 years at least..My friends think they all sound like a bunch of cackling hens….When they are all talking at once…The thrill is gone for me with this show…This show is worn-out…But I guess people like that kind of show..To each it”s own………..I’m tired of these kind of talk shows………………

DWTS is semi-rigged…always has been. The judges intentionally give lower scores to those whom they want sent home early. Move along people, nothing to see here…

I do not believe that Daytime performers are getting a raw deal with Dancing With The Star’s, that’s ridiculous, and who can assume something like that? The bottome line with Daytime viewers getting voted off is because people aren’t voting for them. If their fans voted for them, they would still be on. It’s unfortunate because I think the judges should have the final say so in who stays or goes. I absolutely love Sherri Shepard for going out and challenging her fear. I commend her bc this dancing thing is not easy and having to maintain your day job FIVE hours away on plane (a ride that I have taken too many times to count) is tiresome, and causes stiffness and jet lag in and of itself. I salute Sherry for a job well done, and yes she should of been on longer.

Don’t forget Kelly Monaco (Sam on GH) winning the whole thing a few years ago.

Can’t really say that–JR Martinez won last season. I do agree with Barbara T; I’m not watching ABC Daytime anymore and wouldn’t vote for anyone associated with it.

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.

Reeves shares the entire DAYS team was up for the challenge. Melissa also reveals during the dramatic scenes where Jennifer’s family was acting emotional circles around her, that she fell asleep during her scenes while she was playing Jennifer in a coma.

Later, Paul Telfer and Eric Martsolf have a little hang out discussion in between scenes, that is often hilarious when you can imagine getting Xander and Brady, and their real-life portrayers, Paul and Eric, in the same room in front of a microphone.

Now below, let us know your thoughts on what Melissa shared regarding the latest developments one-year later for Jennifer Horton Deveraux, and the DAYS time-jump in the comment section below.
