US: Former The View co-host Sherri Shepherd mocks Rosie O’Donnell’s depression

Aaron Day October 29, 2014

Sherri Shepherd, a former co-host on The View, has made fun of Rosie O’Donnell for her depression, as well as her “other ailments.”

Appearing on Good Morning America, Shepherd started mocking O’Donnell for taking off her shoes on The View’s first episode this year.

According to the Examiner, Shepherd lifted one of her legs in the air and imitated O’Donnell, saying, “I got gout. Here’s my toes. I want to show you my toes. And I’ve been depressed.

“And I got sciatica in my back. And I’m going through depression. … How many other ailments can I get? I got 12 more in the year that I’ll be on ‘The View.’”

O’Donnell originally left The View in 2007 after the network could not come to terms on the length of a new contract.

She was known for bringing controversy to the cast, most notably for clashing with conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Earlier this year O’Donnell revealed that she attempted to come out as gay in a 1992 magazine interview, but that she was blocked from doing so in order to “protect” her.

Rosie a year ago announced that she and her wife Michelle Rounds were celebrating the birth of a baby girl Dakota.
