Sherri Shepherd Shows Off Her Engagement Ring on The View Donna Svennevik/ABC

Fresh from taking a turn as a bridesmaid, Sherri Shepherd is gearing up for her own walk down the aisle. Shepherd and her fiancé, Lamar Sally, were both in Niecy Nash’s wedding to Jay Tucker last month in Malibu. “They introduced Sal and I,” Shepherd told PEOPLE at the Samsung Hope for Children benefit Tuesday in New York. “Two years later, we’re still together. They’re going to be in our wedding, as a matter of fact.” With less than two months left until their big day in August, Shepherd and Sally are busy planning. The View host says she just picked out her wedding dress, a “beautiful, just gorgeous” gown by Rivini. “I started on the South Beach Diet because I gave them my fantasy size, so I now got to get into it,” Shepherd said. “Elisabeth told me to tell the truth but I lied. So I’m going to the gym and starting Zumba tomorrow.” The couple’s next stop is Los Angeles, to rehearse some dance moves with their wedding party. “We’re all going to do a choreographed dance to a Chris Brown song,” Shepherd said. “Elisabeth Hasselbeck has a robot solo. She does a very sexy robot, so I cannot wait to get that going!” They’re also busy learning to do the Samba for their first dance and setting up appointments with vendors, like a cake tasting at Sylvia Weinstock. Shepherd’s son Jeffrey, 6, will be walking her down the aisle. “It will all be great!” she said, but is she having any countdown jitters? “Yes, I’m very nervous. It’s the second time — I want to do it right!” So to unwind in their downtime, Shepherd said, the family watches “a lot of sports” for fun. “I don’t know anything that’s going on, but it makes Sal happy,” she said. “So I sit there and smile.” –Asher Fogle
