Sherri Shepherd Says Barbara Walters Made Her Cry for Years on 'The View': 'I Just Need You to Read a Book'

Sherri Shepherd said that Barbara Walters made her cry for years when they co-hosted ‘The View’ together.

via Page Six:

“Barbara was so hard on me. I cried for three years in my dressing room because she was so hard on me, but she did it out of love,” Shepherd — who was a co-star on the long-running ABC panel show between 2007 and 2014 — told People.

But apparently Walters told her: “I love you, I just need you to read a book, dear, and learn to defend what you believe. And speak up.”

Shepherd said, “It was the most painful experience that I’ve ever gone through, but it was the best experience.”

Sheesh. Barbara told her to read a book? That’s cold.
