Dear Hollywood: Sherri Shepherd And Octavia Spencer Are Not The Same Person

Today on “The View,” Sherri Shepherd talked about her job as a red carpet correspondent during the Oscars this past Sunday night and casually mentioned how many of the Hollywood elite mistook her for Octavia Spencer. SERIOUSLY?!

From today’s “View”:

Said Sherri: “So many people would say to me on the red carpet, ‘do you think you’re gonna win tonight?’ They thought I was Octavia Spencer!” Celebrities — including Bo Derek and John Corbett — apparently kept approaching Sherri to talk about her nomination and she said she didn’t have the heart to tell them that she wasn’t Octavia. I can’t even believe this.

3. For those who are confused about the difference between the two very different women, let us help:

Are we clear now? Great. Moving on.

Octavia tweeted this yesterday. I like to think she heard our cry.
