Here's Why Sherri Shepherd Says Sex After 50 Is 'Amazing'

Like they say, with age comes wisdom and it can also come with confidence.

Celebrity News

Sherri Shepherd is proof that age ain’t nothing but a number. She has had a storied career in entertainment as an actress and comedian. Now at 55, she is readying her very own talk show in the fall after successfully guest hosting The Wendy Williams Show while Wendy was dealing with health issues. In an interview with Yahoo Life, Sherri talked about the positives of getting older.

“I'm at the point where I don't mind saying no,” she said about being over 55. “Older to me is not a negative. Older is a positive. When, when Captain Sully landed that plane in the Hudson River, he wasn't 30 — he was older. There's a lot of stuff that you get when you're older and I've learned to forgive more. I've learned to not let people bother me. So older is really a plus and don't let anybody tell you it's not.”

Like they say, with age comes wisdom and it can also come with confidence. However, in the talk show host’s case, she has always had body confidence and felt sexy no matter what size she was.

“I always like my body. I like my body when it had rolls on it. I like my body when my stomach is tight,” she said. “You know when you're not at your best weight, when you're not at your best health. So I've never not loved my body, but I knew when I wasn't operating at optimal efficiency.”

The mother of two has documented her weight loss journey on social media. In June 2021, she revealed that she lost a total of 55 lbs since focusing on her health.

“I got lingerie in a size XX, XL, and I felt sexy. I have lingerie in a size medium, and I feel sexy,” she said. “Sexy is not the way your body looks sexy is how you feel inside.”

Sherri then proceeded to talk about how her sex life has changed since being in her 50s. “Sex after 50 is amazing. You know why?” She asked. “Because you take your time. There's no Energizer bunnies going on after 50. After 50, you know what you want and you're not afraid to say it.”

The actress’ self-titled talk show is set to premiere on Sept. 12.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.

How Each Of The Zodiac Signs Get Over A Break-Up

Have you ever wondered how some people tend to get over breakups easily, and others have more of a difficult time? The zodiac signs are always telling a story, and the story of love is written in the stars. Some signs naturally follow their emotions more and live by the heart. Others signs focus on balancing their head with their heart and can rationalize this type of change in their life, such as a breakup. People get over breakups in their own way and in their own time, but wouldn’t it be nice to understand more about how you process this experience yourself, or how someone you know or have been involved with gets over a breakup?

'Abbott Elementary' Proves That TV Can Build Community

The first time I thought about how art could be a form of community building was with HBO’s Insecure. The dearly departed comedy series created and starring Issa Rae provided audiences with more than just weekly laughs over the course of five years, but it also created space for other Black artists and entrepreneurs to thrive-- from all the Black businesses that the show has collaborated with to the Black music artists that the show has put audiences onto. It even created opportunities within entertainment journalism for many up and coming Black journalists who got their start by reviewing the show or hosting after shows unpacking the mess that went on in the episode.
