Sherri Shepherd revealed that everything on her talk show will be “bigger” in season 2 – except her breasts.
The “Sherri” host, 56, explained Monday during the premiere episode of her second season that she underwent a breast reduction on July 13.
“Throughout my career, I received so many comments about my body and many of you kept saying, ‘Sherri, you’re too heavy.’ And I was getting comments like, ‘If you just got your breasts done, everything would be balanced,'” she said at the start of the show.
“So guess what? I did my boobs!” the TV personality added before standing up and holding her hands to her chest to show off her figure.
“I had a breast reduction this summer and in season 2, everything is going to be bigger except these boobs,” she joked.
“To be clear, I didn’t get this boob job because of all the comments. I got the job because I just wanted to see what it felt like to sleep on my stomach.
“I’m so happy I did it. I was a 42DD,” she revealed, adding that large breasts run in her family and she considered them “her best friends.”
However, the weight of her natural chest was beginning to take its toll on her body.
“I thought I was carrying the weight of the world, but it was actually the weight of my breasts,” the comedian joked.

“All the jokes aside, they were so heavy that I was slouched over all the time. It started to become very painful, my back hurt a lot.
The Daytime Emmy winner also added that she was “lighter” than ever, saying, “I feel better.” I’m not going to say that I wish I had done this a while ago because timing is everything. God gave them to me, they served me well but now as I get older I can sit up straight. I feel lighter.
Elsewhere on the show, Shepherd explained why “Sherri” was returning to the air amid the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
“This summer, you may have all seen your favorite actors and Hollywood stars participating in the picket lines during the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes,” she said.
“There has been so much confusion about who can work and who can’t work…The ‘Sherri’ show is not a WGA show and we have never employed WGA writers, so our return to work does not cross the picket line. »
