Sherri Shepherd joined the panelists on ABC's The View Monday but failed to generate the controversy that Whoopi Goldberg did when, during her debut on the show a week earlier, she defended football star Michael Vick's role in a dogfighting operation. However, Shepherd did raise eyebrows during a discussion of the recent revelation that Vanessa Hudgens, a co-star of the squeaky-clean High School Musical, had posed for nude photos. "I've still got nude pictures from when I was 17," Shepherd remarked, saying that she had sent them to to her boyfriend in prison. When panelists asked her if she was making it all up, she replied indirectly that the pictures were "very tastefully done. I had on red lingerie and was holding an apple."
