Sherri Shepherd to "DWTS"

I'M TOO BUSY

TO DO YOUR SHOW

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.

She is too busy. That is really funny. Busy getting married to a guy that doesn't work and she will end up supporting for the entire time they are married. She is on the View but her views are stupid. She really doesn't know to much about anything and when she does open her mouth she puts her foot in it. If they replaced her and Elizabeth I would partake in watching the show again. Until then, they could cancel it for all I care.

no one will read this since I'm so far down the list but....get your story straight morons.(TMZ) Sherry Shepard was not approached by DWTS....she approached them herself on the air on the view. Evidently you and your readers don'*****ch the show...it aired last week......Barbara Walters came up with the idea of waiting til next year when she's not so busy....Tom appeared to be more trapped and speechless.......he never envited her on the show...

I find that hard to believe as this bytch was shamelessly begging Tom Bergeron to be on DWTS when he visited the View last week. I felt embarassed for her.

She was asking Barbara if she got on could she have time off. Barbara said "Let's wait until you've been asked." Ha ha! And so really...someone asked her? If so, I find it hard to believe she declined because she has been begging on air to do the show for YEARS.

Nevertheless, for whatever reason she's NOT going to be on the show, I'm glad. She is dumb, obnoxious, clueless of her obnoxiousness and annoying. This lady actually thinks she is sexy. I have a feeling she'd be in for a rude awakening -- just like Wendy Williams.

Wow - these people are really stretching the definition of what a star is - Sherri Shepherd is not the sharpest tool in the shed and she is the most irritating person on the View - and that's really saying something!

Now that DWTS has filled the Z-lister male slot with Rob Kardashian, and Sherri Shepherd has turned down the female Z-list slot, what absolute female looser will step up to the plate? DWTS has jumped the shark for sure!

Just the other day she was begging Tom Beregeon as to how she can get on the show. She has said she was willing to travel.
