“One of my biggest awards, Joy, is my Shagger of the Year award,” he replied, before admitting that it was “awkward” to discuss the title with his mother Barbara.
When he confirmed he had been off drugs and alcohol for six and a half years, Meghan asked him: “You said drug and alcohol free, but what about sex addiction?” Joy teased: “Yes! What about this, shagger of the year?!’
“Now listen, you’re going to strip me of my title and I’m going to take off your tights!” he replied as the studio audience laughed.
He then interrupted Sherri as she tried to question him about his “sex and fucking,” with the comedian caressing her leg and explaining, “You look good… I like those kind of gladiator high heel shoes, that you wear, and I like your legs.’

Whoopi chimed in, “Yeah, Sherri, when are you going to give up?” He’s a qualified man, right here…”
An embarrassed looking Sherri replied, “Don’t start anything, you can’t finish Russell!” To which he replied, “I assure you I’m confident in this area and I’m not bluffing.” I’ll take care of you, I will make you look colorful, I will make you forget your own name, it will be wonderful!’
“No wonder he’s Shagger of the Year!” Joy blurted out as Barbara said to Sherri, “It looks to me like you’re looking forward to it, that’s all I’m saying!”

Moments later, Barbara suggested that Russell get help for his sex addiction, before joking: “It seems to be helping you a lot… whatever gets you through the night, as they say!”
Russell turned his attention back to Sherri and replied, “Well, Sherri tonight!” as he placed his arm against hers on the arm of the sofa.
Sherri began giggling uncontrollably as Sister Act star Whoopi grilled him about his sexual escapades, asking, “Have you ever had a sister since you’ve been spending time with Sherri?”

Posting the video on And as I’ve detailed in my books, I was very, very promiscuous.
“During this period of promiscuity, the relationships I had were completely consensual.” I was always transparent about that back then, and I still am today.
“And seeing how that transparency has turned into something criminal that I absolutely deny makes me wonder if there is another agenda at play,” he added.
