Shepherd, whose wedding was filmed for a Style Network special scheduled to air Sept. 13, told the audience about a close call during the celebration. "One of my bridesmaids, I think it was Niecy Nash, said, 'Don't wear any underwear," Shepherd said. "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."
