'Dancing With The Stars': Sherri Shepherd's enthusiasm is unmatched

April 1, 2012 12:00:00 AM PDT
Sherri Shepherd loves to shimmy, and she brings her infectious energy to the ballroom each week on "Dancing With The Stars."

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.
