“Jail, that was a classroom… it was a life lesson, and now I pay my bills on time,” Sherri told Page Six.

While in prison, Sherri met someone who helped her see something in her that she didn’t quite yet see herself.

“One of the girls in jail said, ‘Leave Sherri alone because she’s gonna be somebody and we are going to be here for the rest of our lives,’ literally that’s what she used to say,” Sherri said.

“Her name was Shelby and she came to both my weddings when I got out,” she continued. “But sometimes people see things in you that you don’t see yourself, and when she said those words, ‘Sherri is gonna be somebody,’ I never thought that for myself. So I just knew that something was going to happen.”
