'Dancing With the Stars': Sherri Shepherd gets a letter from Bill Clinton
"Oh my gosh! I got a letter from former President Bill Clinton and he said, ' I was excited to hear that you'll be joining the cast of "Dancing With the Stars" this season. Good luck with the competition and all those trips from New York to L.A. You've got my vote!" I'm so excited! Bill and Hilary Clinton, if you're not doing anything, come see me! I'd love to have you as my guest on "Dancing With the Stars"
Her co-hosts showered her with praise, and Barbara Walters asked her why she's in the bottom three. "Yeah. I got a 24. I think I'm in the bottom four. They don't judge you based on anyone else. They judge you based on you. I learned that rumba in two days and it was hard for me and some people were just better technically than me. I just wanted to get it perfect for Jeffrey."
Shepherd says the competition is the hardest thing she's done outside of childbirth but that she loves it. She is most worried about the new twist the judges added in. "Yeah, the week after next, if you're in the bottom two, you have to do a dance off. You have another dance to do. They'll say, 'Well, you already did your rumba. Now you've got to do the chacha.' Another couple has to do that dance and you guys have to dance off against each other. It's not the votes from your fans. It's the votes from the judges. My memory is just not that good."
"Dancing With the Stars" airs on Monday and Tuesday nights on ABC.
