This photo of Sheryl Lee Ralph reminded us of a funny story. Sheryl, who has dimples that rival Mario Lopez’s, had an amusing but top secret fling with Robert DeNiro back in the 90’s. A security guard working in fancy New York hotel called us one night and laughingly told us that DeNiro was in the hotel lobby that very minute having a tantrum. The hotel didn’t permit late night visitors to go up in the elevator until the person they were visiting came down to get them. No matter how much DeNiro argued and blustered, the hotel manager would not budge. Finally DeNiro called upstairs and Sheryl Lee Ralph came down in a bathrobe and high heels to get him. DeNiro was angry because his tryst was no longer a secret. And he was even MORE furious when we wrote about it in Star magazine. His publicist threatened to sue everyone – even the hotel, but eventually dropped the matter. A few years later we ran in to Sheryl while doing a show at the E! channel and she giggled and admitted the story was quite accurate! (Sheryl is now happily married to a Pennsylvania state senator.)

    Don’t know what kind of marriage she had, but Sheryl was married, for the first time, from 1990-2001.

    what is your obsession with other peoples sex lives Strom ?, stay on topic dude, its always the same twisted shit with you, you are some kind of creepy slimeball, you always veer off into your ugly world of hate and NEVEFR actually reference the topic. go on, try to stay on topic sicko

    Poor Luka, what is inaccurate? The entire article is about Bob sneaking up to bang BLACK Sheryl (was she married then) but wanted to keep it a secret.

    As stated by others, Bob, like the Kardashians, has a major proclivity for BLACK sex.

    The great BLACK Obama should hire DeNiro as the spokesman for unwed BLACK women. He could cite his experiences and call out all the successful BLACK men who will only have a white wife.

    He could also explain why the CDC says over 50% of BLACK women have and spread herpes.

    Ha Naomi, it’s not about poster’s!

    You and Luka seem to have both failed again to address the subject of the thread while throwing hate at another poster.

    Strom- Failed again? Your comments have nothing to do with the post. What does this have to do with Obama, a Kardashian or herpes? Talk about hater. Get back on your meds or back to the mental institution you escaped from. I hope for the safety of others you never leave your trailer.

    Poor Poor Naomi….your PC Fangs are showing through.

    You failed to read my post or you would have seen it was about the thread, unlike yours.

    Provide a portion of your XMAS cheer to help those BLACK women with herpes.

    Good point Alex. Really creepy. Beyond creepy. Strom makes this site such a downer with hateful messages that don’t even make sense. Wish Janet could block. FB pages would have kicked out that awful thing a long time ago.

    Amazing but none of the posts from Alex, Naomi, or Luka have had a mention of the thread….just a takeoff on a poster. Nothing hateful in my posts but much hate foisted about in yours!

    hey, do YOU ever notice that YOU don’t mention the thread either dumbass. you just use it as a landing strip for your brand of twisted and ignorant obsessions, regardless of the actual topic.

    If the topic was let say … the national dances of Norway , you’d insert a comment about herpes, or your favourite topic somonelse’s sex life.

    If you didn’t Strom, no one would ever respond, would they ?

    So the movie they did together was semi-autobiographical? This was years ago–can’t recall the name–but Sheryl Lee played Deniro’s girlfriend, an aspiring actress.

    Poor Alex….the thread is what it is about and you should relate to that and not spread hate at other poster’s views.

    Bob was happy to pump BLACK Sheryl but just didn’t want anyone to know it. Hopefully with all his experiences he has not contracted herpes.

    If that’s a recent photo, Sheryl has certainly aged well. Still beautiful. As for DeNiro, we always knew he had a type: beautiful black women.
