The Talk - Sheryl Underwood On Being Lifelong Caretaker for Sister
Air Date: 09/14/16
Today on "The Talk," host Sheryl Underwood is joined by her brother Michael, as she reveals the emotional journey she's been on since childhood helping her family to care for older sister, Frankie. "Mentally, she's less than 18 months," Sheryl shares. "She cannot read, write or talk. She's a baby in an adult woman's body...at 60-some years old. So that's why we have to take care of her the way we take care of her...It became my joy, my duty." Sheryl says her drive to succeed in her career comes from her desire to be able to pay for her sister's round-the-clock care. "That's why I'm working so hard. It's not for the vanity, it's not for the notoriety. It's to protect my sister."
