Comedienne, actress, and talk show host Sherri Shepherd has a net worth of $10 million. And that net worth doesn't come from just doing one thing and sticking to it, she's earned her living in a variety of different capacities, demonstrating her remarkably versatile talent. Shepherd's career in comedy began as she was pursuing a very different career: That of a legal secretary. Doing stand-up at night to earn extra cash, Shepherd quickly began catching the attention of the "powers that be" in comedy, eventually earning a legitimate acting job on the TV series Cleghorne!, which starred the now forgotten Saturday Night Live cast member Ellen Cleghorne. From there, Shepherd's star continued to rise, eventually earning a spot as co-host on the popular daytime talk show The View, on which she has made a variety of controversial statements. Not the least of these was her claim to not know whether or not the Earth is flat, and that R&B singer Shirley Caesar is "the black Patti LaBelle." The latter statement is controversial because both parties are black. Shepherd has also joined the ranks of comedians who have earned their own sitcoms with the sitcom Sherri, which can be seen on the Lifetime channel.
