Sherri Shepherd had her something old, her something new, her something borrowed and her something blue when she tied the knot with Lamar Sally in Chicago on August 13. One thing she didn't have on her wedding day? Her underwear!

"One of my bridesmaids, I think it was Niecy Nash, said, 'Don't wear any underwear," Shepherd said on The View's season premiere Tuesday. "They knew me and Sal had been celibate for 11 months, so [she wanted me to do] anything [I could] do to get him turned back on."

But according to The View co-host, whose nuptials were filmed for a Style Network special airing September 13, going commando wasn't exactly the best decision.

When her microphone pack fell down the back of her dress, it had to be retrieved quickly. "They were lifting my dress and I was screaming, 'No, I have no panties on,'" Shepherd, 44, recalled. "And one bridesmaid thought I kept screaming, 'My pancreas! My pancreas!'"

Luckily, bridesmaid Elisabeth Hasselbeck rushed to Shepherd's aid. "I was ready to slap you," Hasselbeck, 34, joked of trying to calm down the frazzled bride.

What was Shepherd's favorite part of the ceremony? "Dancing with my son," she said of Jeffrey, 6 (with ex-husband Jeff Tarpley). "He walked me down the aisle. He wasn't nervous."
