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.

So, do you think that daytime performers are getting a raw deal on Dancing with the Stars? Let us know!

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.

There were day’s when Sheri was doing all the talking..Her in her bathing suit that day…………………..Oh Boy!!!!!!!!!! And it was stuff that didn’t make much sense….

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.
