Why Dancing With The Stars Was The Third Best Experience Of My Life, From Sherri Shepherd (VIDEO)

Sherri Shepherd, Emmy Award-Winning Cohost of The View, made her dancing debut for nearly five weeks on "Dancing With The Stars," and she said it was one of the best experiences of her entire life.

“Aside from having a child and getting married, that was the third best experience of my life,” she reflected. Even though Sherri has performed as a stand-up comic and a television host, she was even more challenged by getting in front of 12 million viewers and dancing. “I got stage fright!” she remembered.

“I found out that if you run towards that thing you fear, it's amazing on the other side,” Sherri told us with a smile.
