The View's Sherri Shepherd lost 41 pounds and gained the cover of OK! Magazine. In an exclusive interview and photo shoot, Shepherd talks about what she went through to achieve her goal of appearing on The View in a swimsuit.
“I lost weight last year and started gaining it back because I wasn’t exercising,” Sherri explains in the new issue of OK!. “I said to my producer, ‘Why don’t we do something where I tell people ‘Let’s do it together!’ and maybe [up the ante with] a bathing suit.'"
