Sherri Shepherd snuck into the Delta Sky Club lounge in New Orleans, and she is sharing just how she did it in a hilarious Instagram post.
In a video shared to her account Monday, “The View” co-host and actress said she impersonated Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer to take part in the VIP airport treatment.
She further explained her sneaky stunt in the video.
“(This guy) wants to know why I haven’t been nominated for another Oscar this year… and people are telling me how much they loved me in ‘Hidden Figures’ and ‘The Help,’ ” she whispered into her phone. “They think that I am Octavia Spencer, and I can’t tell them that I’m Sherri Shepherd because they’re gonna throw me out of the VIP lounge here at Delta because I used your name to get in.”
She also captioned the video: “When everyone in the #vip lounge @delta thinks you’re @octaviaspencer … I just can’t let them down … I can’t.”
Taraji P. Henson thought the video was hilarious, commenting, “I AM SCREAMING” with a dozen laughing emojis.
