The VIEW’s SHERRI SHEPHERD explodes after home invasion, “We’re going to get a gun!”
Sherri revealed on the AM chatter that she experienced a frightening home invasion scare that terrified her son Jeffrey and husband Lamar Sally.
The 46-year-old former stand-up comic had a not so funny wake-up call at 1 a.m. when her New York City home’s alarm system went off declaring, “Warning! Intruder, get out of the house!”
The devout Christian explained that she felt vulnerable because she had nothing to protect her family  except a wicker basket, RadarOnline noted.
“I’m trying to calm Jeffrey down and all I had was this wicker basket,” Sherri said.
“I have nothing, a bat, nothing. We’re going to get a gun.”
The police arrived about seven minutes later and discovered it was false alarm.
