HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM LKL BLOG!
Do you believe in ghosts? What scares you? How are you celebrating Halloween? We want to know!!! Actress and "The View" co-host, Sherri Shepherd, shares all of her favorite Halloween memories with the Larry King Live BLOG…
LKL Blog: What’s your favorite Halloween memory and why?
Sherri Shepherd: My favorite Halloween memory is when I cursed out the people that came to my door because it was grown men who walked up to my door and they had a knife stuck in their eyes with blood running down. And they were mad because they wanted more than one snickers bar and I said, “Get a job!” Friggin’ taking all my candy. Best Halloween I ever had. Got a lot of anger out!
LKL Blog: What’s your favorite scary movie?
Sherri Shepherd: My favorite scary movie is any “Dawn of the Dead,” anything where the dead come back. That movie scares the crap out of me. One of my favorite scary movies is “I Am Legend” with Will Smith. I mean when he looked out the window at the end of the movie and all those zombies were running towards the freaking house, I almost wet my pants. As a matter of fact, I think I did.
LKL Blog: What’s your favorite Halloween candy?
Sherri Shepherd: My favorite Halloween candy is the candy corn, the pure sugar. You need an IV drip for after you eat ten of them.
LKL Blog: What’s your favorite Halloween costume?
Sherri Shepherd: I dressed up my child as Moses. My ex-husband thought it was really lame but everybody wanted a blessing when they saw my kid. It was great!
LKL Blog: Do you believe in ghosts? Any ghost sightings or experiences?
Sherri Shepherd: No, not really. No. I don’t like to scare myself like that!
LKL Blog: What does scare you?
Sherri Shepherd: To step out of my comfort zone & try new things. That scares me.

In Ireland when I was about 14 years old, I was riding my bicycle home from my girlfriends house, and as I started up a hill, I saw a white apparition coming toward me, I got off of my bicycle and watched it as it moved very rapidly toward me. I felt frozen to the ground,, and as It got closer I realized it had to be a ghost. I managed to pull myself together and turned around and went like the wind back to my girlfriend's house. I was shaking! My friends parents insisted I stay the night. I never rode my bike again after dark .
It's sad to me the way Michael's life played out. The missing pieces from a childhood deprived of whimsy and make-believe, and far too many responsibilities and commitments. Knowing what he had missed, Michael created a 'Neverland' for so many to enjoy, and for himself, to feel that childish flutter that he waited so long to experience. Instead of being bitter and filled with regrets, he was able to become the dad he desperately wished he'd had , building a world of wonder and happiness for his own children. How lucky they were to have had him as a dad! He was not a product of his environment, but was an inspiration to people to take their own hardships and turn them into something positive for the world to see. This movie was a backstage look into the man that I knew he was, and that those who see the movie will come to understand much better afterwards. What a sensitive, soft-spoken, genius of a man, with a humbleness not possessed by most who had accomplished so much. How lucky for us to have had him in our lives, not as a personal friend of course, but as a person who created the music we grew up with. Music that takes us to a place in our memories when we hear his many songs, remembering where we were as he presented them to us over the last 40 years (it's the 40th anniversary of the Jackson Five this year). You went too soon Michael, and it's our loss for what will not be. Thank you God for giving us this talented man, and thanks to you, Michael, for making the sacrifices necessary to share yourself and your gift with us. If it's true that you get back what you put in, your rewards will be too great to imagine.

On the subject of Halloween, Michael did the Thriller song and video and it became the best seller. The irony is he was associated with the Jehovah's Witnesses and they weren't too happy with him over it. It was quite controversial.
