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 should have DWTS last season so she could have lost some weight. She is getting so fat she won't be able to squeeze in any size wedding dress. Everytime there is food on The View she is right there stuffing her face.

I am seriously questioning the credibility of the "A List" story published by TMZ just like the $55 million story sensationalized by TMZ.

So much for DWTS saying they weren't going to use c or d listers anymore.

This story is undoubtedly fictitious, Sherry Shepherd is always openly pandering to the DWTS producers to have her on the show. Just last week the other girls had to tell her to knock it off and they (Whoopi) told her she was too busy to do the show. I really don't think any of the girls want her to do it and I don't either if she's gonna act like goof ball... + her figure, who wants to see more of that?

Can you imagine a show with only the wanna-be celebrities that you can't stand on it? The voting would go through the roof. Everybody would be voting everyone off from the get go. The producers will make a fortune!

I want McHammer on the show. I have never watched before, but I would if Hammer was on. He's got moves...

The Professional Dancer that was assigned to be her partner saw that picture of Sherri and threatened to quit. They figured after seeing that look that they would be eaten alive by this woman. So she was DENIED! Sorry Sherri, peddle your story elsewhere.

I don't think they wanted to hear her "View" on what dance she wanted to do, what music she wanted to hear, what would she wear or not wear(her choice). Their "view" was clear...NO SHERRI.

That's funny she's too busy, she's practically been begging to go on DWTS for a few years now.

Apparently a "Star" is any idiot that has ever been on TV. Can't wait for the season where Elian Gonzalez dances.

DWTS thinks that Sherri Shepherd is a A-Lister Celebrity? Really? Okay so the requirements to be considered an A-Lister Celebrity just fell by MAJOR PROPORTIONS! How embarrassing for the real A-listers!
