'DWTS' Sherri Shepherd Has an Inspiring Message for Working Moms (VIDEO)

Sherri ShepherdOut of all the contestants on Season 14 of Dancing With The Stars, I'd have to say Sherri Shepherd is my favorite. The View co-host is stepping out of her comfort zone and has been working her butt off in preparation for the premiere this upcoming Monday. And although Sherri doesn't look like your typical dancer, I have a funny feeling she'll do just fine dancing with hunky dance pro, Val Chmerkovskiy.

So, how does she stay so motiviated? Well, it seems like Sherri has a lot riding on this competition. And what she's looking for as an outcome is much more than a trophy ...


In a recent interview, Sherri explained:

I'm doing this for working mothers who feel like 'I don't know if I can handle something', you know what? Yes, you can. Go for it. If it scares you, if there's something in your little belly, go and do it. So I'm going to show some people you can do anything you want to do.

Talk about a role model! I mean, seriously. Doesn't this just make you want her to win the whole damn thing? Check out the rest of the video where you'll see Sherri try to convince her dance partner to go shirtless in the competition. (Yet another reason we love her!)

You've got my vote, Sherri!

Does Sherri inspire you? Will you be rooting for her on Dancing With The Stars?
