Sherri Shepherd Denies Early Dancing With the Stars Cheating Rehearsal, Reports of Cheating

by at . Comments

Sherri Shepherd took to The View today to address rumors that she's been rehearsing for the show since January and thus has an unfair advantage.

The Season 14 hopeful denied ever working with Val Chmerkovskiy (her pro partner on the program) and/or Maksim Chmerkovskiy at their dance studio.

“We have never, I say never, we’ve never danced together,” Sherri said of the rumor. “I’ve never danced with Maks, I’ve never danced with Val."

However, she did attend a dance class at their venue.

She did clarify that she loves dancing and had taken classes, however, “This started long before I started negotiations with Dancing With the Stars.”

Sherri said she took lessons before her wedding to Lamar Sally in August.

Radar Online had said Sherri was spotted this past December at the Soho Studio owned by the Chmerkovskiy brothers and Maks was there at the time.

Also, PureDWTS reported in December that they saw a photo of Sherri and Val go up at Dance With Me's website but it was promptly taken down.

Since Sherri is still tweeting about Monday’s DWTS season premiere it doesn’t sound like the allegation that she “cheated” is being taken seriously.

She and Val should be taken seriously as contenders though, apparently! She's been practicing, and the Dancing With the Stars cast is on notice.

taking a dance practice with someone is not a cheat.
