co-host, 47, is reportedly dating Johnny Gill, New Direction‘s sexy lead singer, 48.They’ve been keeping their alleged new relationship on the down-low, though, as Sherri is still legally married to her estranged husband, Lamar Sally. Despite going through a very public – and very messy – divorce, former The View co-host Sherri Shepherd has quietly started dating R&B singer Johnny Gill, Mail Online has learned exclusively.A friend of Sherri’s tells Mail Online that the couple met on June 25 when Johnny performed with his band New Edition on The View and they’ve been seeing each other ever since. The “My, My, My” singer sat down with Kevin Frazier for an exclusive interview and for the first time discussed his sexuality and why he believes the rumors have persisted.“If I could tell you why I sure would have by now…at this point in time I would have been able to cure that issue … =] Why don't you give this (very talented) man a break, and appreciate him for whatever gifts God gave him to bring to US. Nothing better to waste your time on, I'm guessing =/ His personal life is NONE of my business (although - to be honest, I sure do wish it was, hehehe...) There's been some extremely stupid remarks made here, although I guess I shouldn't be suprised..? The movie was wack but everyone has to get their start somewhere. You'd be extremely surprised by the number of Hollywood men putting on the straight front. Some of us are coming very close to playing God and that is not right! As for Johnny, I thought he was very nice and down-to-earth when I met him and he can sing. Maybe he's a private man and like to keep his affairs HIS and not the public and maybe that special person hasn't arise for him to bring out like that you never now. So each and every one of you need to find a hobby, and stop concerning yourselves with Johnny Gills sexuality.Before I pass, it's always been my dream to have him sing a song to me... Okay, I have met him and I don't get any gay vibes from this dude. As far as the girl..is hot, and she isn't a white girl..yourselves a favor and get your facts right before you decide to waste 15 minutes of your life on celebrity gossip.
He also touched upon the drama at Eddie Murphy’s wedding, specifically relative to Murphy’s mother fight with Tracey Edmonds at the “spiritual ceremony”.I consider his voice to be the absolute BEST male vocalist that exists in the world right now, and I would be blessed...honored...(completely dazed =) to ever have that moment. He's really cool and down to earth..his son is freakin adorable! Him and Eddie have been friends since they were kids. Miami DW[/quote] Well she sure ain't black, thats for sure.The point is though, I'm NOT God, and neither are YOU, right? what most don't know (cause they aren't true fans) is that Johnny is not gay.She’s not an actress and she was being honest with him.” Gill also shed some light on what initially set off Momma Murphy’s tirade.“One of Tracey’s guests said some things that were inappropriate that triggered everything with the mom, and that’s how it all started,” he said. Gill also tried to explain what Murphy was thinking when he famously picked up a transvestite prostitute in West Hollywood.
