She hopes the show will let her show off her different sides, and a big part of that difference comes from her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy. He agrees that nobody is having more fun on the show than her.
"I'm living a dream ... just being on the floor," Shepherd said. "Dancing, being part of this family, it's magical."
"I love to dance, I don't want to go home," she added. "I hope America votes for us."
Shepherd and Chmerkovskiy will perform the Rhumba on Monday night's episode of "Dancing With The Stars" starting at 8 p.m. on ABC7.
