sherri shepherd dancing with the stars 'Dancing With the Stars': Sherri Shepherd gets a letter from Bill ClintonSherri Shepherd has some pretty famous fans on “Dancing With the Stars” She got a letter from Bill Clinton, supporting her appearance on the show! Shepherd took the red eye back to New York right after the week 2 elimination and told “The View” audiences about the letter.

judges. My memory is just not that good.”

“Dancing With the Stars” airs on Monday and Tuesday nights on ABC.
