Sherri Shepherd Sherri Shepherd

When Hot in Cleveland ended its first season, the fate of Betty White's character, Elka Ostrovsky, was left hanging. In case you missed it, Elka was arrested after authorities discovered she'd been keeping her shady ex-husband's stolen goods.

Elka will stand trial in February, and The View's Sherri Shepherd has just been cast as the judge who will preside over her competency case. A good choice considering all the tests of competency Sherri's had to endure on The View.

Season Two of Hot in Cleveland premieres January 19 on TV Land.
