Sherri Shepherd On Taking Over For Wendy Williams: 'Let’s Be Clear, I’m Not A Mean Person At All'

As she takes over Wendy Williams’ show, Sherri Shepherd is making something clear.

Williams was known for speaking her mind on her now canceled daytime talk show. While she is missed, some viewers are anxious to see how her replacement, Shepherd, will show up. The previous queen of daytime didn’t care who you were if the story was juicy, she was going to use it as one of her hot topics and give her honest opinion. But Shepherd says their shows are nothing alike.

Shepherd says her show will be void of mean shade

In a recent interview with, The Daily Mail, Shepherd says her critique will be delivered with care.

“Let’s be clear, I’m not a mean person at all!” she said. “I’m all about positive energy. I’m about joy. I’m about kindness and laughter. Anyone that knows me will tell you just that.”

"And that’s what my talk show will embody," she noted. "Why would it be anything but that? As a celebrity myself, I know what it’s like to not feel safe appearing on a show or hoping a host doesn’t try to have a gotcha-moment with you. It will be a celebrity-friendly zone on Sherri."

Shepherd is happy to have her own show, and despite Williams saying she refuses to watch, The View alum is unbothered.

“I did hear Wendy say she will not watch me on the new show. And that’s OK. You know, I understand. I’m not mad at Wendy,” she explained in a previous interview. “She’s going through a lot.”

Shepherd is sending well wishes Williams’ way, adding: “I would say that everyone should be praying for Wendy right now,” “I’m really truly concerned for her because I don’t feel like there’s anybody over there protecting her … But I’m not mad at Wendy because she won’t watch my show.”
