Only one thing makes Sherri Shepherd nervous about tying the knot with new fiance Lamar Sally: the tears.

"I don't want to cry and lose my lashes and stuff," The View cohost, 43, told at Betty White's birthday bash Tuesday. "So, I want to make sure I do it the right way. Last time I got married [to Jeff Tarpley in 2001] I sounded like a cow that got shot in the ass because I was wailing. So, I don't want to do all of that. It's not cute."

And the actress intends to look smokin' in front of her man and the approximately 200 guests at their Chicago nuptials.

"I have this fantasy of strapless," she told Us of her dream gown. "I don't know what's going to hold these boulders up, but strapless is the way I want to go!"

Shepherd -- who said she's planning to take a pole dancing class to prep for her honeymoon -- also told Us she had a special request for the bridal shower View cohost Barbara Walters, 81, is planning.

"I asked her if we could slip in a stripper and she gave me a look, so I'm not quite sure," she said. "I told her, 'Get somebody named Chocolate Thunder at the bridal shower!"
