Crazy Talk

The latest ruckus caused by Sherri Shepherd has nothing to do with the shape of the earth — this time, the View co-host is admitting that she’s “had more abortions than [she] would like to count.” Scandalous! Except that didn’t bother us as much as this quote from Shepherd:

Oh, sometimes I say, ‘Lord, Juanita Bynum or Joyce Meyer would be so good at this table [on The View]. They could lay hands on Barbara Walters and get her saved.’ I ask the Lord, ‘Why am I here?’ I have to trust God when He says, ‘Because I said so.’

You’re not alone, Sherri. It’s safe to say all of America has asked themselves — while watching clips from The View — why you are there.

God, I fucking hate Christians like that. Baba Wawa doesn’t need saving. She’s perfect as is. Sherri needs to my her business.

The power of Christ compels you Sherri, to shut the hell up.

More abortions than she’d like to count? And she admitted that? Wow. And she think Babwa has issues…

To paraphrase the Family Guy, Sherri has been scraped more times than a fisherman’s knuckle.

No. 5 judy says:

She could have had one abortion, and that would be more than she would like to count.
She didn’t say she had more than she CAN COUNT, MORE THAN SHE WOULD LIKE TO COUNT.
there are thousands or millions of women who have had an abortion, that doesn’t mean everyone is a piece of shit.
Barbara admitted to adultery, that is a sin too isn’t it?

No. 6 Kate says:

I’m sorry, but that phrase has no other meaning than “a lot”. And i never said anyone who had an abortion was a piece of shit. She’s a hypocrite.

No. 8 jennifer says:

How is she a hypocrite? She’s speaking honestly about what she sees as mistakes that she made in her past; it’s not like she’s trying to pull a Dr. Laura. I don’t get what is so hypocritical. I think it takes courage and humility, and she may even be talking about it in the hope that other women can possibly learn something from her experiences as a drug addict, which would also be admirable. I do agree that she should have left Babwa out of it; it was very unnecessary to name her specifically and it makes me wonder if she has some passive-aggressive feelings towards her, which WOULD actually be hypocritical because then she would only be pretending that she just wants to “save” Babwa, when she is actually trying to piss her off. But who knows. Having said that, Babwa is SO far from perfect the way she is, just like not a single one of us are perfect the way we are, or even “just fine” the way we are (there’s no point in living if that’s the case). Anyway, for all her obvious faults, at least Sherri doesn’t have a chip on her shoulder and is real; wish there were more people like that around. I think we can agree that she’s no Elisabeth!

so once your saved it’s ok to publicly announce you’re an irresponsible whore? dude, keep it to yourself like the rest of us.

No. 12 chela47 says:

@ lava: whoa whoa whoa. lots of women who have abortions are in no way irresponsible whores. I’ve had my share of condoms break while with my boyfriend of SEVERAL years. I’m just lucky that I’ve never actually had to terminate a pregnancy. maybe this’ll make me look humorless, but I had to disagree.

also: nothing wrong with being a little whorish. irresponsible? yeah, maybe an issue.

No. 14 stopthemadness says:

i reckon lava was being tongue in cheek.

and i reckon sar is going to have to fight sara at thunderdome.

sar has been training. running laps wearing sweatsuits and trashbags like that wrestler dude in that movie with that chick who was in men in black and dogma.

she’s cutting weight. she’s already lost an “a.” soon she’ll be down to “sa” and then what do you do?

well that’s obvious. shoot the hostage.

No. 15 queencrone says:

Here’s the thing with sara. Bear with me. she is a salesman.

Normally, I eat salesmen for breakfast. A little marmelade and clotted cream (that’s just some really light, sweet butter as I recently found out)and they are toast.

But if you ignore them, they eventually go away.

No. 16 coolrepublica says:

At what point before she lost count of all her abortions did she tell herself, maybe it is a good time to get on a the pill? So now we know that Shepherd is crazy, stupid and loves to kill babies. I’m pro-choice and all. I can forgive one abortion, but when you start losing count of them, I say FU and say get your tube tied or something.

No. 17 Chelsea says:

Agreed. You’re not an irresponsible whore for having sex, or for having an abortion (read: ONE). Once you have multiple abortions, and start using that as a form of birth control, you become the argument conservatives throw at liberals as to why abortions should be illegal.

In all seriousness, abortions are to be a last resort, because it’s serious shit. The right should be yours, of course, but the pill is like, ten bucks a month. Ten bucks. To keep doctors from scraping out your vag. Seriously, there’s any doubt about the right way to go here?

Also, chela47: If you’ve been with your boyfriend for several years, and you’re obviously monogamous, why the hell are you still using condoms and having ‘close calls’? Am I the only advocate for the pill here?

No. 18 jennifer says:

@ lava: I think you might be missing the point. It’s precisely because she is no longer engaging in such irresponsible behavior (drugs and unsafe sex) that opening up about her past can have a positive impact. I can’t help but think that if Whoopi had come out with this kind of experience, she might be getting a much more positive reception here, like “wow, she’s really come a long way,” “she’s so brave to be talking about this stuff,” etc. Or I could be wrong. Anyway, I don’t get the whole born-again thing, but in Sherri’s case it apparently helped her straighten out, so I won’t knock it. Big picture.

No. 19 tlatzoteotl says:

Chelsea, you might just be. I would never recommend the pill to anyone. Coming off of it made my life hell for a year (ever bled for 4 months straight? not fun). I now use a diaphragm, but once I quit breastfeeding I’ll probably stop using that and go back to just using the MaybeMOM (look it up). My hormones are off the chart right now, so the MaybeMOM comes back as saying I’m ovulating all the time, but the good thing is that I don’t have a period. IUDs are evil, too. The side effects from those things scare me.

No. 20 sar says:

I hear you guys, all of you.

I think Sherri uses her faith to help her forgive herself from something she obviously comdemns herself for, something that’s gotta be a source of a lot of turmoil, and probably a lot of her crazy.

tlaz (your name always makes me want to yodel?) i’m worried about coming off the pill too, my best friend had a terrible time with it… but this spit thing birth control is like, terrifying. do you know how easy it would be for me to screw that up! auuugh! i can barely manage to take the pill correctly.

I was on the pill when I got pregnant. It was the best thing that ever happened to me.

No. 22 mirsada says:

birth control pills saved my life. not literally but they greatly improved it. before taking the pill i went through living hell every time i had my period. i would be in dread like i was going to a death sentence days before my period. the pain was like god ramming a fist spiked with broken glass into my stomach and churning it around for three days. no pain pills stopped the pain. my body must have thought that i was really going through child birth every month. the only reason i was able to go to work was because you get fired for missing a week every month. now i have normal cramps that go away with two Advils. God bless birth control pills! If those psycho born agains take away my right to those pills i’m terrosit bombing their asses.

No. 23 tlatzoteotl says:

sar, I’m thinking of changing my handle. I’ve been using this for years, but I’ve recently had my eyes opened to Asatru, and as I am mainly German/Scandinavian I think I should drop the Aztec shit and go with something Nordic.

mirsada, I sympathize. When I was in high school I had such terrible PMS that I threw up and had to leave several times. The pain was really bad, fortunately not so bad as you described. Anyway, I started the pill to deal with that exact issue. I changed my body chemistry being on the pill for 10 years, and I haven’t experienced extremely painful PMS since I came off the pill, so I pray for the same thing for you…eventually you’ll have to come off if you want kids. I also pray you don’t have to deal with all the side effects I did. The 4 month thing was right before I got pregnant, but before then I went through periods when sex hurt and my ovaries were throbbing non-stop. All due to estrogen imbalance. Anyone having imbalance issues, look into natural progesterone therapy. There are creams that use the natural progesterone in plants (yams mostly), and there are no side effects, only benefits. I used Dong Quai to even out, and that was what finally worked to make the constant bleeding stop. I had gotten lazy with the MaybeMOM, so I got pregnant. But, as YerMom says, best thing that ever happened to me. I’m broke as shit but I have the handsomest, smartest, smilingest little baby son I could ever have imagined.

Posted: Jul 23, 2008 at 12:56 pm
No. 24 tlatzoteotl says:

I should clarify that Dong Quai is an herb, and I’ve never actually used progesterone cream. It’s something I read about afterwards as being really effective that wasn’t chemically altered medicine.

No. 26 Carly says:

All of the abortion talk aside, she is the dumbest bitch on the planet and she should go but I would bet because she’s black they will never fire her, you might hear she is moving back to California “because she misses her son” but they aren’t going to get rid of her. That show is so over, Elisabeth is going to have a complete breakdown. Last night on Larry King when Joy Behar was hosting EH called in to reprimand Fran Drescher for making fun of her, it just goes on and on. The View is dead.

Chelsea, you sound wise. I do not agree with abortion at all, however, you are enlightening. and reasonable. this woman , sherri actually made me nauseous. but now this horrific decsion or what one wants to call it, will be taken seriously and one will go on the pill or their partner can take precautions as well. sick.

well see i wasn’t going to go get pregnant and have abortions. but i will now that i can go get born again and it’ll all be ok. thanks sherry.
