Sherri Shepherd to "DWTS"

Sherri Shepherd might be a queen of daytime TV on "The View" -- but she won't be crowned queen of "Dancing With the Stars" any time soon ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Shepherd tell TMZ she's been approached by "DWTS" for this upcoming season -- and they've been "aggressively courting her."

But Shepherd is getting married later this month -- during hiatus from "The View" -- and we're told once she goes back to work ... there just won't be time for "DWTS."

Guess Sherri's wedding will be the best shot to see her waltz ... or paso whatever.

I thought someone said DWTS was only going to go after actual celebrities from now on, none of these d-list people? Rob Kardashian and Sherri Shepherd? REALLY?
They should have just announced "We will continue to have z-list nobodies, as usual"

It seems like they're still using the same formula, looking to fill the 'top heavy' slot. They should have been looking for A listers after the first season instead of trying to stick with clones of prior pseudo celebrities.

This girl has an 8th grade education at best! She's not
even funny and I can't stand her constant interruptions
on the stupid show, "The View". Stupid is where stupid
works! and DWTS has gotten stupid too!

So much for A-listers. She is possibly the least famous of the hosts on The View and that's saying something.

Sherri? A list? Lmao! Now that's funny. Who knew dwts had such a sense of humor. The woman is such an idiot. Besides with all the dance moves, she'd be too worried about losing her wigs. Might as well go after Star Jones. Both fat, black and always babbling about their wedding nobody cares about.

It seems as if DWTS is not having any luck with their next lineup. Looks like Rob Khardashian may win by default.

Let's be really honest here. This woman is on The View for one reason and one reason only - cause she is black and she fits a demographic that ABC TV and Barbara Walters want to fill. She is not talented and she is not funny. Those are two requirements you must have if you are going to sit your fat ass on the sofa every freaking day and tell me what you think about everything under the gd sun!

This season "Dancing with the Z list" People we love to hate. Put Lindsay Lohan, Michael Lohan, Dina Lohan, All the KarCashians, Octomom, Oksana Givemegriefa, John and Kate minus the eight, Gloria Inbred, Charlie Sheen and Brook, we'll even throw Obama in there because he loves hanging with the celebrities. If anyone can think of some of their favorites that they would love to hate on this show, jot it down, you never know.
