Sherri Shepherd: I Could be the 'Chocolate' Ellen


Sherri Shepherd talks to ET about everything -- who should replace her on The View, her ex-husbands coming at her from every angle, and doing her own pilot.

"I've had seven years at The View," said Sherri. "You cannot get any kind of growth without change, so it's time. It's time to fly."

Sherri told us that she is "giddy with excitement" about Rosie O'Donnell's casting. As for the other vacancies on the panel, Sherri gave us a few of her choices.

"I think Meghan McCain would be good," said Sherri. "I think she's awesome. She stands up for what she believes."

Sherri also loves Ross Matthews and Rosie Perez as potential co-hosts.
