Comedian Sheryl Underwood comes clean as to why she backed out of the “Queens of Comedy Tour” , which was the female spin off of the “Kings of Comedy”. She stated that before she had a chance to accept the role, she overheard three stars of the show talking smack about her on a conference call.
Sheryl says that Laura Hayes, Adele Givens and Sommore were trash talking her comedic abilities – and her appearance — without realizing she was on the line. Underwood later called show creator Walter Latham and told him she didn’t think the part would be the right fit for her. The comedian also said that she has worked with Hayes and Givens since the incident, but up until now, the three women did not know that she overheard the phone call.
I’m not a big fan of Sherly but damn Adele Givens don’t have no business talking about anyone’s appearance. I would’ve listened and then cut right in the conversation and went the off, but it shows that she was the bigger person and in the end, where are these ladies right now… Hell, Sommore is hosting Love & Hip Hop reunion shows and what not…
After revealing her secret, Underwood insisted that she’s not angry or upset at her peers over the phone call that she happened upon 20 years ago. “I decided instead of being angry and vengeful, I took the truth and made myself even better,” she said. Laura Hayes, Adele Givens and Sommore have not yet commented on Underwood’s statement.
