Sherri posted a hilarious video in which she explains sotto-voice to Octavia that she had stolen her identity and was enjoying the adulation. She said:

"They think that I am Octavia Spencer, and I can't tell them that I'm Sherri Shepherd because they're gonna throw me out of the VIP lounge here at Delta because I used your name to get in."
