As our own Michael Söze reported earlier today Sherri Shepherd wed Lamar Sally over the weekend and while the Chicago ceremony at the Fairmont Hotel was a private event, it’s being reported that some specific women who should have been there did not attend, those ladies are Shepherd’s The View co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters and Joy Behar.
According to one wedding insider:
“I assumed that they would be there as did all of the wedding party and guests, or they should have at least sent a video of congratulations as well as expressing why they regret they could not attend or to show they were at least there for Sal & Sherry in spirit.”
At least two of the shows hosts Whoopi and Barbara were only a few hours away in New York at the time of the wedding, leading to some speculation that they simple didn’t support their fellow co-host.
While the ladies of the view were not in attendance there were still plenty of celebrity pals supporting their nuptials including Elisabeth Hasslebeck and husband Tim Hasselbeck, Jay Tucker, Yvette Nicole Brown and comedian Kym Whitley among others.
According to the Sun Times:
The eatery [P.F. Changs] presented them with a special red velvet cake, the bride’s favorite. One of Sherri’s adoring fans happened to be celebrating her birthday at the eatery, and Sherri graciously took pictures and the fan told her how “skinny she looked.” Local music retailer George Daniels was among the many wedding guests and was seen dancing with Hasselbeck at the reception. (Were they steppin’?)
There’s always drama between ladies of The View but who knows, perhaps they simply couldn’t make it this time around.
