Sherri Shepherd's Birthday Brunch Was Filled With Black Women Loving On Black Women

And we'll be looking out for our invite next year, sis.

Celebrity News

Sherri Shepherd has always been a positive light, beaming all over Black culture in the best way possible. When she's involved in anything, you can expect lots of laughs, that huge personality, and the fact that she will absolutely tell it as it is. She's fluently unfiltered, and much of her media and entertainment journey is steeped in her ability to draw the viewer in. And this has always been the case, across the span of her 20+ year career.

And to bask in her accolades, our girl just celebrated her 54th birthday in the best way possible: surrounded by legendary Black women, loving on, and outwardly supporting, legendary Black women.

Love to see it.

The brunch heard around Black Hollywood, took place at Sherri's home, and was attended by her Black Don't Crack co-star, Essence Atkins, Tisha Campbell, Loni Love, Sheila E., Garcelle Beauvais, Kellee Stewart, Regina Hicks, Black Don't Crack director Kelly Park, and BFF Niecy Nash.

The theme was all-purple everything, the birthday girl's favorite color, and was catered by Chef Ian Desdune, who--get this--is the son of fellow queen Regina King.

Of the event, Sherri said:

"When I tell you my heart is sooo full. It's my belated Birthday celebration & because of #covid restrictions I couldn't invite all my beloved friends but I tell you I am in tears for the outpouring of love from my girls in this industry. I wouldn't have made it without these ladies in my life and shout to @sheilaedrummer on the 35th anniversary of #glamorouslife ... thank you @niecynash1 - my bestie - for the videos! They captured my day. (#decor by @makeupbylatrice | food @muntch.la#massage@manlyhandz ) #friendship#blackgirlmagic#hollywood#sisters"

Girl, our hearts are full too!

Sidebar: let me know when you're over the shock of this woman being 54 years old...

Shepherd's newfound youthful glow, is likely credited to the news of her shedding an impressive 20 pounds and being on a health journey since March of 2018. She uploaded a clip of her weight loss with the caption:

"My goal was 15lbs but I just hit 20lbs! It's been a journal of mental self talk... believing in my worth... knowing my son Jeffrey needs his Momma healthy & whole and wanting to live a life filled w joy."

And focusing on her health also removed her diabetic diagnosis, to the point where she's not even pre-diabetic anymore.

In the end, after a tough few years, our girl seems to have found a new clarity, the kind that you only wish on people that truly deserve it. She's healthier, happier, living for her son's happiness, and surrounded by the love she puts out.

And if anyone in the world deserves the energy that they put out into the universe in return, it is absolutely Sherri Shepherd. Happy birthday, queen!

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
