There are many people who fantasize about being famous, living in the spotlight, and having millions of people hang on every word they say. They view notoriety as the pinnacle of great living, but Sherri Shepherd, Christian co-host of ABC’s chat fest “The View” and author of Plan D—a book on how to fight Type 2 Diabetes—says fame is hardly easy.

“It’s a lot harder being in the public eye and there’s a lot more pressure,” she told iVillage in an interview. There are “comments about my weight and my body shape every day.”

According to Shepherd, she is scrutinized harshly, particularly, when others don’t like the things she says. “I get nasty comments all the time on the Internet, which is why I don’t read the blogs. I feel that it’s easy for people to sit on their couch or in front of their keyboards and criticize,” she explained.
