Ever get terrified of losing your wig? Sherri Shepherd feels your pain. The 49-year-old Daytime Emmy winner wigged out during a fake snake gag on Sunday’s episode of To Tell the Truth. The game show’s host, Anthony Anderson, used a crowbar to open a wooden crate and then flung a toy snake at the former View co-host. But it was Sherri’s freak-out that left the audience laughing.
She literally fell out of her seat, screaming on the way down while trying to escape the bite of said fake snake. It was game show TV at its finest. But besides Sherri’s intense fear of serpents, she also feared losing her wig in front of the live studio audience.
“I HATE snakes! And @anthonyanderson got me good by pretending to throw a fake snake at me,” she wrote on an Instagram post. “As I was screaming & falling, all I kept thinking was ‘please God don’t let my #wig come off and don’t let my dress come up like Sophia in the #ColorPurple‘ fun times on #ToTellTheTruth on @ABCNetwork! Thanks @SaikokWoods for the hilarious video.”
Luckily the former host of The View didn’t have wig slip and was a good sport about the whole prank because this joke could have went from 0 to 100 real quick. It’s all fun and games until somebody loses a wig!
Here are five wig glues to keep your ‘do safe and secure against all odds:
- Ghost Bond XL Adhesive
- [BMB] Super Lace Glue for Lace Front Wigs Super Hold
- Ultra Hold Acrylic Adhesive with Brush Applicator
- Davlyn Green Waterproof Adhesive
- SuperTape Lace Front Tape
OK, so we kind of cheated with this one, but tape is a less messy approach to the whole wig thing and this stuff is just as strong!
