VIDEO: Sherri Shepherd to Return to Host Own Talk Show?: 'I Would Love to Be a Chocolate Ellen'


Actress and former talk show host, Sherri Shepherd stopped by CBS's THE TALK to discuss the possibility of returning to THE TALK show circuit. Shepherd says, "I do miss this, but I don't believe in going back. They gave me a great send-off...I'm looking forward, not behind me," but quickly added, "I would love to be a chocolate Ellen!"

Later, Shepherd discussed playing Chris Rock's ex-girlfriend in the new film "Top Five." She also reacts to Sheryl Underwood telling her, "You saved my life that day...when we were doing "Beauty Shop" together...I was done. I was going to quit [the business]." Shepherd responds, "Sheryl was the sweetest person in the world. She said she was going to quit and I said, 'You can't...The world needs you. You're funny. They need you...' and I think we prayed together and see!"
