*Months after Sheryl Underwood put Sommore, Adele Givens and Laura Hayes on blast after overhearing them talk about her during a Queens of Comedy conference call, Sommore is shedding light on the situation with her side of the story.
Chatting with The Breakfast Club, Sommore didn’t hold back when telling exactly how she feels about Underwood and how what really happened with that infamous conference call.
“Sheryl Underwood, Jesus…The thing about it is, I’m a chandelier. I always call myself a chandelier. I don’t hate on nobody. I don’t compare myself to nobody. I don’t compete with nobody else. I just try to be the best me I can be. Miss Underwood was never considered to be a Queen of Comedy. Never,” the comedienne said. “What she was talking about, was the project that we were discussing about going into prisons and doing comedy for inmates. And she overheard a conversation about us. You know, when you’re doing business, when it comes down to the details of things, sometimes you don’t really want to hear all that. Even when an agent is going in to talk about their client, they don’t bring their client with them because some things that are said might not sound good to them. So that’s what basically happened.”
Sommore’s comments come after Hayes and Givens reportedly weighed in on the conference call in September. The funnywoman later admitted that it bothered her that Underwood felt the way she did and decided to air out their conflict on “The Talk.”
Sommore also made it clear that she is not, and never has been, friends with “The Talk” co-host.
“And the thing that bothered me about it was that I seen her about two weeks before she said this on television. And we were at Steve Harvey’s Hoodie Awards, and she did this skit where she called up all the comedians on stage and she was calling me. All the people that was there they can attest to this. She kept saying ‘Sommore come on up on stage’. And I didn’t go. Because first of all, I don’t rock with her like that. And one thing I’m not, I’m not phony. I don’t rock with her like that. And it was weird because people were like, ’Where is she? I just seen her?’ I didn’t dip out, I just didn’t move,” said Sommore, who made it clear that she is not, and never has been friends with “The Talk” co-host.
“It’s not that I don’t like her, I’m cordial to her. I just don’t rock with her like that. Meaning, I’m not getting ready to come up and be part of your skit–for what? You do you, do what you do. So what was crazy was, if you felt that way about me or that I wronged you, why would you invite me on stage? See, I don’t like people that have ulterior motives. I felt like, you’re on TV every single day and you obviously ran out of stuff to talk about. I didn’t even recall the conversation. We were talking about business, it wasn’t even funny. I can’t even imagine it being funny.”
