Sherri Shepherd Reveals She Almost Passed Out During First Phone Call With Oprah Winfrey

Sherri Shepherd spoke about Oprah Winfrey in a recent interview and recalled their first phone call. Shepherd revealed that she almost passed out on the phone while they were talking, as reported People.

Sherri added that she considers Oprah an inspiration for how she paved the way for women in television. Sherri also revealed their first phone call in 2009.

Sherri said: “Oprah is a pioneering media mogul who paved the way for women – and especially black women – on television. The foundation she established opened the doors for me and the women who look like they can have a talk show during the day.”

She added, “Every time I talk to her, it’s a masterclass. I leave with a notebook full of her gems of wisdom. When Oprah first called me back in 2009, she said, ‘ It’s Oprah Winfrey. Gayle told me you made a big impression on me. I almost passed out.”
