    Will she need to learn English for the role? I’m so tired of hearing her debase the language and give young, impressionable minds the thought that they can communicate effectively and be successful in life without knowing English grammar. I hope she isn’t giving these lessons to her son.

    Its time to boycott Ride-A-Long.

    Sherri go already!! She is getto acting loud mouth opinionated And Not funny! The View is not about you miss ignorant wannabe co host! Yay shes leaving!!!

  5. I totally agree with the previous writer. I will not miss her at all. She has an opinion on everything and does not respect the guest to listen to what they have to say about anything. She should close her mouth sometime and learn. Many days I watch and say out loud “Sherrie shut up”!

    I used to like her, but now I think she not so funny anymore or anything else after what she’s doing about the baby she needs to grow up and be made to do what she said she would do.
