On this week’s episode of The Mommy Show, Sherri Shepherd shows up to talk tantrums (her son had one before meeting President Obama), craft houses out of milk cartons and try to open the packaging for a $10 toy with a screw driver.
This is the 12th episode of The Mommy Show and the last one shot for the series. BUT GREAT NEWS! I just signed up for Season #2!!!
To celebrate, ulive made me my very own Mommy Show sizzle reel. If you’ve never seen an episode, this is a great primer for what goes on. Celebrities come over, try to figure out what wrong turn their career took that led them to my living room, and then eventually ask for a drink.
Check it out. It’s my new favorite thing.
But back to Sherri.
She was hands down, one of my favorite guests.
After we shot the first scene where she enters my apartment, she turned to me and said, “Oh, I like this. I feel like I’m on Curb Your Enthusiasm!”
Ummmm….greatest compliment ever.
There are certain people that are just easy to talk to (probably the result of her being on a talk show herself) and I think you can tell I am having a lot of fun this episode. It also helps that she’s super funny (any other big Angie Jordan fans out there?) and made it a personal goal to make Mazzy laugh during filming.
Sherri was also there to talk about her book “Plan D: How to Lose Weight and Beat Diabetes”, which is Mazzy’s new favorite bedtime story. You can tell by the way she carefully leafs through it at 2:40.
Did I mention Mazzy crawled on and off my lap the entire interview? Sherri is explaining how a good interviewer should be listening and interested in the person they are interviewing, and I’m thinking— why can’t Mazzy stay still for one second? Are there ACTUALLY ants in her pants? Oh wait. What’s Sherri saying? I should be listening to her? Right….
A big thanks to NickMom for helping me get Sherri Shepherd as a guest. Sherri is the hilarious host of NickMom’s Night Out, a stand-up comedy showcase specifically featuring parents.
I’m giving away two signed copies of Sherri’s book in the comment section below. Just tell me which celebrities you’d like to see in the second season.
I’ll pick two winners at random next Friday.
Hope you like the final episode! It’s one of my favorites.

I think this is my favorite episode so far! Next season…hmm, could you use your Rachel Dratch connection to get Jimmy Fallon? Love him and he has a baby now…
Confession: Though I always read your blog, this was the first time I watched one of your episodes. What took me so long?? It was so funny and cute, and you are amazing on camera. Now I’m going to go binge watch the episodes while trying not to get caught by my boss. 😉
Jimmy Fallon would be awesome, but I’d really love to see Mariska Hargitay (and could you accidentally invite me over to relive our LTYM days that day?? *wink*)
I think as a mom (biological and adoptive) and advocate she is interesting, beautiful and incredibly funny. Plus she just directed an episode of SVU so she’s expanding her resume.
I love these, Idina was a favorite of mine but wow Sherri was a great interview.
(and why does it take very ADULT tools and patience and possibly a degree from Columbia to open children’s toys? Sheesh.)
I’d like to see Ellen Degeneres!
Can’t see through tears to comment—clips of baby Harlow–music–hormone overload–WAAAAAAAA!!
I’m going to chime in on teh Jimmy Fallon votes, but also add Neil Patrick Harris… he just moved to NYC you know… and Katie Holmes, definitely Katie Holmes.
I don’t want the book, but just wanted to say that she might be my favorite guest too. I love that she’s the first one who didn’t actually complete the challenge.
You can leave me out of the book contest but I wanted to second the Mariska Hargitay suggestion! I would DIE. Also, I love when the male guests come on, so maybe more of that. Will Ferell and Adam Sandler wouldn’t be too hard to get, right? Oh! And Julie Bowen is awesome and inappropriate, so she could be fun.
ha ha, yes. even before reading any of the comments…
I saw this in my reader and had to click on over to say Jimmy Fallon. yes, that would be awesome.
Another SNL alumni – Tina Fey. Mayim Bialik!
Oh, Sherri was funny!
I’d love to see Julia Roberts and Neil Patrick Harris.
I like watching you interview the woman, but the men are hilarious when it comes to doing the baby tasks!
Julia Roberts and you would be fast friends. Get her! 🙂 or yeah Jimmy Fallon!
This is so awesome that you have this opportunity with ulive!
I totally think you need Jimmy Fallon on your show because he mentioned baby mugging.
And for my next choice… Miley Cyrus. If you get Miley, please tell me and I will fly to your house to meet her.
I think this one was my new favorite. I love her. I’d also love Kristen Bell or Emma Stone.
You need Idina Menzel again, now that your daughter is probably in love with her and all things Anna and Elsa with the rest of the toddlers I know.
