Sherri Shepherd on 'DWTS': My Husband Is Jealous of Maksim!

Sherri Shepherd was announced as part of the Season 14 lineup of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ on Tuesday morning. And while we can’t wait to see Sherri get down on the dance floor, Maksim Chmerkovskiy might want to keep his hands to himself.

Hollyscoop talked to ‘The View’ host at the 84th Academy Awards, and she told us: “My husband said if Maksim pats me on the booty, he’s going to whip his behind.”

Sherri will be going up against the likes of Melissa Gilbert, Jaleel White and Maria Menounos.

“I don’t know if I can move my hips the way the folks do on that show,” Sherri told Hollyscoop.

We’re sure you’ll be fine, and we can’t wait to see those moves.

"This season, we particularly wanted to go for a likable cast, people that you feel affectionate toward," executive producer Conrad Green says of choosing the celebrity contestants for the show. "The core of our show is about finding people you can root for and wanting them to triumph."

Sherri has actually been paired with partner Val Chmerkovskiy, and on ‘The View’ on Tuesday, Sherri said, “He’s so hot!”

Co-host Joy Behar, referring to Nancy Grace’s infamous wardrobe malfunction last season, told Shepherd:

“Make sure you don't have a nipple incident, because with your boobs they could see it from outer space!"

Behar then promised, "we're going to get the audience to vote for you like Nancy Grace's audience voted for her!"
