Sherri Shepherd is on the brink of launching her own eponymous talk show — and she’s been swimming in a pool of advice from her fellow chat fest females.

In a preview for her upcoming daytime series, “Sherri,” the 55-year-old comedian-actress-host revealed the pearls of wisdom she received from her former “The View” co-hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell and Joy Behar.

“The moment you open up your mouth — half the world is going to hate you,” Shepherd said Behar, 79, advised her, according to a new clip posted Tuesday to her official YouTube channel.

Shepherd had several memorable stints on ABC’s daytime mainstay over the years, appearing on about 600 episodes and even scoring the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show Host in 2009.

The “30 Rock” star also shared sage words from her former “The View” moderator Goldberg, 66: She advised that being a host is “never about you, it’s always for someone else… [and] know that you’re taking people on a journey.”

However, Shepherd revealed that O’Donnell, 60, gave her “the best advice” out of all of her other former cohosts “She told me how much money she makes,” Shepherd said with a smile.

As for TV interview icon Walters, 92, she directed the Chicago native to “always be curious” and “ask questions, never take no for an answer.”

Late standup legend and talk show pioneer Joan Rivers also dropped a nugget of advice before she died at 81 in 2014, telling Shepherd that “funny girls will always work!”

“Sherri” is set to premiere on Sept. 12 on Fox and will be taking over Wendy Williams’ old spot following the latter’s show cancellation earlier this year. Shepherd scored her new gig after guest-hosting over the past year on “The Wendy Williams Show.”
