“People don’t want to do that because they feel like they’re going to miss out on all the food. Exactly!”
Since her weight loss, Shepherd says she has had the chance to play some new roles, including Chris Rock’s ex-girlfriend in his upcoming movie Finally Famous. Since Rosario Dawson and Gabrielle Union play his next girlfriends, Shepherd feels like at least she’s in good company these days. But she doesn’t think she’s going to start playing super sexy femme fatales, unless of course, they’re funny.
“I’m still a funny girl. I know what lane I swim in and I love the lane I’m swimming in. I love making you laugh.”
You can catch Shepherd weekdays on The View and hosting The Stellar Awards on January 18.
