Sherri Shepherd requests audience pray for Jamie Foxx’s recovery: “he still has a lot more to do!”

Sherri Shepherd, who worked with Jamie Foxx early in her career, asked the audience to “keep him in your prayers” while he heals from an unspecified “medical complication.”

“He still has a lot more to do,” she explained.

During the “Open Mic” part of Tuesday’s episode of “Sherri” with actress and comedian Sherri Shepherd, an audience member asked about her experience appearing on “The Jamie Foxx Show,” which she described as a “dream come true” moment.

“The role they had written for me, was only supposed to be one time,” Shepard explained. “And I was like, Jamie just gives you a good time, he makes everyone laugh and it was such a great set I said, “I want to come back on this show.” So, they happened to put me next to Jamie and I only had one line, and I said, ‘what can I do to get Jamie’s attention?’ So, as he was talking, I put his hand on my thigh.”

Shepherd continued: “He looked at my hand and he put it on my thigh. And I said, “what else can I do?” Then I leaned up in his neck and I sniffed as he was talking, and it made Jamie laugh. The thing about Foxx is if you make him laugh he keeps you around. So, he kept laughing. I made everybody on the cast and crew laugh, because I didn’t say anything, and I just decided to take a risk. And then Jamie kept bringing me back.”

Shepherd went on to say that she’d want to bring back the entire group for a reunion, and she asked viewers and audience members to keep Foxx in their thoughts and prayers.

“We got to do the Jamie Foxx show again,” Shepherd said. “I was like let’s just do something together… It was a lot of fun doing the Jamie Foxx show. He’s so much fun so keep him in your prayers, he still has a lot more to do!”

Foxx, 55, was sent to the hospital on April 12 for what his family defined as a “medical complication.” Prior to being hospitalized, he was in Atlanta working for Netflix’s “Back in Action.” Sources close to Foxx requested fans and supporters to “pray” for the Oscar winner on May 3. In response to the previous claims, Foxx’s daughter stated on May 12 that her father was home and “has been recovering for weeks.”
