Sherri Shepherd Getting Braces

Sherri Shepherd is getting braces!

The "View" co-host Tweeted after Tuesday's show that she was off to the dentist to get braces:

Finished show... I think I need to stop staying up past midnight. So tired; could barely read the prompter. Going to dentist-getting braces

She later tweeted her rationale for getting braces:

Got this gap in teeth that I'm HATING! Don't want veneers or caps - might try invisalign or braces behind my teeth-anyone experience either

"I get paid to talk so if it affects my speech I might be better off w/ invisalaign," she followed-up.

In addition to co-hosting "The View," Sherri also is set to star in a Lifetime comedy pilot, so it may behoove her to fix her teeth now before her career takes off any further.

An up-close zoom of a Getty Images photo of Sherri when she co-hosted the Daytime Emmys last June reveals (in addition to some lipstick on her teeth) the space between her two front teeth that Sherri tweeted about:
