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.)
