Sherri Shepherd Gets Bill Clinton Letter For 'Dancing With The Stars' (VIDEO)

Sherri Shepherd revealed that she received a special letter from Bill Clinton on Wednesday's "The View."

She and her co-hosts were discussing her most recent performance on "Dancing With the Stars," when Whoopi Goldberg mentioned that she knew someone who "loves" the show and must be "voting every week." Sherri announced that Clinton had sent her a letter of support.

She read it aloud. He wrote: "I was excited to hear that you'll be joining the cast of 'Dancing with the Stars' this season. Good luck with the competition — and all those trips from New York to L.A.! You've got my vote!"

While gearing up for the show, Sherri had told Access Hollywood that she would be courting Clinton's vote. "I'm calling President Clinton, former President Clinton, he's a fan,” she said.

On Wednesday, Sherri said she was "so excited" by his support, and invited Bill and Hillary to be her guests on the program.
