Update: Is Sherri Shepherd A Deadbeat Mother?

Is Sherri Shepherd A Deadbeat Mother?  We Found Some Things Sherri Shepherd Does Not Want You To Know Plus Sherri Shepherd Is A Hypocrite

Last night, Sherri Shepherd appeared on Bravo TV‘s, “Watch What Happens Live” alongside Kenya Moore.  Actually, not last night, but Bravo TV aired the episode, you can read more about that on the link below–the show wasn’t “live”. Regardless, Sherri Shepherd, former “The View” co-host made some hypocritical statements and we wanted to take this opportunity to address those hypocritical comments Sherrie Shepherd made along with everything Sherri Shepherd does not want you to know. But first; we have to ask: Is Sherri Shepherd A Deadbeat Mother?

Read Updates at the bottom of the post. 

Read: Was Sherri Shepherd’s and Kenya Moore’s Appearance Live On Watch What Happens Live?

I know by saying “Sherri Shepherd Is A Deadbeat Mother” sounds harsh, but in reality, if the roles were reversed, wouldn’t Sherri’s soon to be ex husband, Lamar Sally, (hereinafter: “Sal” or “Sal Sr” or “Lamar Sr.”) be viewed by society as a Deadbeat Father?  Wouldn’t there be public outrage if this were Sal? Where is the public outrage in this case? According to Sherri, as she said last night on “Watch What Happens Wasn’t Live” as well as previous interviews; people are not privy of her businessthe only reason why she talked about other peoples problems on The View when people were in her situation because she, Sherri, was paid too.  How do you like them apples?

Yes, Sherri was paid to talk about other peoples business;  however, Sherri seems to forget how she made a living by trashing her first ex husband Jeffrey Tarpley, as well and now with this ex husband, Lamar Sally in a round about way so far.  Sherri wants Lamar Sally Sal to zip it. Oh the fk’n irony!

Now if he [Lamar Sally] would stop talking about it in public I would be doing better. But I’m doing great. I’m moving. I’m grooving. Everything is good.”~ Sherri Shepherd On Queen Latifah

Sorry Sherri, this is not just about you, this about an innocent child. Actually; I am not sorry. By the way, how does Sherri Shepherd think her first husband, Jeffrey Tarpley felt when she talked about their issues publicly and even had a short lived sit calm called “Sherri” that mocked her first ex-husband?

There is a reason why Sherri wants her soon to be ex husband “Sal” to zip it because Sherri does not want you to know the truth. Sherri wants everyone to think that Sal is a low life who doesn’t work and used her to have a baby so he could collect child support. Let’s think about this for a minute: Sal is in his late 40’s, have you taken care of a baby? They are work! Let’s pretend this were true; why wouldn’t Sherri not file for full custody of the unborn child at the time?  Sherri’s supporters say; “it’s not Sherri’s baby, they didn’t use her egg” while that is true, they only reason why they did not use Sherri’s egg because Sherri’s eggs were not viable.  However, Sherri was sure they used facial recognition for the surrogate in hopes the child would look like Sherrie.

What Sherri Shepherd Does Not Want You To Know

Lamar Sally Is Not The Low Life She Wants You To Think He Is

Lamar Sally reveals damming information about his soon to be ex-wife Sherri Shepherd in interviews he gave to The Daily Mail. I know many of you probably have that stink face going on right now and ready to call Lamar Sally a loser and should get a job instead of making money off of interviews, okay, let’s go there.

 Let’s address the job situation:  I am not going to pretend to know either Sherri or Lamar.  However, when Lamar went on to talk about how moody Sherri was (is) and how Sherri has trust issues and how it got to be tiring (my goodness that is tiring! I’m sorry, but it is, have you ever dated someone with trust issues? I feel so bad for what I put my husband through–I get exhausted thinking about it!) Lamar said he wanted to work and (I remember Sherri talking about this on The View) Sherri did not want him to work because she was afraid he (Sal) would get rich and leave her. Lamar also said Sherri would ask her friends what the big deal is, “why doesn’t Lamar want to be a stay at home husband?”  I will agree with Sherri here: Sherri said on The View, she wanted Sal to be at home for her son Jeffrey Jr. (Sherri’s son from a previous marriage.) because he was good with Jeffrey and her son has special needs. I can see how easy it would have been for Sal to get a job since Sherri was on The View, just Sherri being a host could be a plus on the resume.  If Sal got a job as a writer, that would mean Sal would be away for long periods of times.  Remember: there is this issue how Sherri would not allow her first husband to see Jeffrey Jr., who watched Jeffrey while Sherri was working? Sal.

As often Sherri would gush on The View how good Sal was with her son Jeffrey; I can tell you right now–if I had a special needs child and I was making good money like Sherrie was on, The View,  and I met someone who worked great with my child, your damn right I would not want him to work. Why? So I can just turn around and hire someone to come into my home and do what Sal or my husband could do?  Not to mention it’s not easy working with special need children. There was a study done, an average parent who have children with special needs go through an average of 12 child care workers until they find the appropriate match. Sal also stated the two were to work on projects together for work;

There were times when Sherri wanted us to work on projects together and then the very next day she would change her mind and say, ‘NO! I don’t want to work with you.’

Sherri’s Mood and Trust Issues 

There is nothing is wrong with having trust issues — it can however be tiring for an innocent party on the other end to deal with. Let’s forget this is Sal & Sherri.  When a woman was cheated on; of course she is going to have trust issues, right? You’re going to carry that to your next relationship (Been there! ) Most of the time with trust issues brings out insecurities such as; you not trusting your new partner, your questioning his every move, wanting to spy on him and go through his phone and not wanting him to work far away — that can be tiring and exhausting to deal with. If you have other issues on top of that..

Sal, you should have ran. I know I sound bias..just hear me out.

Lamar told The Daily Mail,

I tried to prove to Sherri that I am not her ex-husband or any of the other guys who have been in her life and for a while we would be OK. But then a few days later we were back to square one and it was exhausting.

They were in therapy before they were married–my goodness!

 “We went to the see the therapist for an hour or sometimes two hours every Wednesday afternoon and it was always the same thing! ‘The doctor told me her issues were ‘workable’ if she was willing, but she kept going over the same stuff week after week. Then we would go home and we never worked on anything together. ‘It was such a waste of time so for awhile I stopped going with her because nothing was getting through to her.’ source 

Lamar Should Stop Talking To The Press For Money


Again, it was okay for Sherri to do it to her ex-husband, Jeffrey Tarpley.   Hell, Sherri even tried to make Sal look like more of a bad guy and had the rumor leaked he cheated on her, all to justify why she walked out of this baby’s life.

The Real Fraud

Sherri Shepherd Wants Us To Believe Sal Is A Fraud And She Should Not Have To Pay Any Child Support Because Sal Tricked Her Into Having A Child In Order To Leave Her And Collect Child Support. Who’s the real fraud here?

Let’s say this is true; why would Sherri not file for full custody then before the child was born and kick his ass out?  You can’t tell me or convince me for that matter that Sal concocted this plan all on his own. Sherri was involved in the whole process; Sherri announced the press when she was looking for a surrogate and  she found a surrogate.

When discussing why they went the surrogate route, Sherri gives the same reasons Lamar Sally has in his recent interviews about Sherri’s eggs not being viable.  In this interview, Sherri Shepherd explains why they decided to have a surrogate;

We did fertility with Jeffrey [Sherri’s son from a previous marriage”] and invitro

Sherrie expressed it was on her body, she originally was to have twins but miscarried Jeffrey’s sister. Sherri also mentions it was hard on her body and age.  Sherri then goes on to say she didn’t want to put herself through that again because it was scary and it would be hard to take off work etc. Sherri then says;

“I figured you know what? We could use a surrogate, That’s why I cried so hard when I was voted off Dancing With The Stars, I was like ‘this is my fertility money. Why y’all voting me off? I’m trying to have a baby with this money.’ that is we decided to go that route”

The interviewer then asks Sherri;

“Was plan D, adopting and getting healthy always apart of the plan?”

Sherri answers;

You know, I always wanted another child, I wanted a sibling for Jeffrey, so I always thought about it, so when I met Sal”

Sherri then says one of the things Sal said to Sherri was;

This is a deal breaker, I waited all my life to have a child with the woman I love, so if this is a deal breaker [for you, to Sherri] and you don’t want to have children, then let me go, let me move on” 

Sherri then says;

“I was like, aint no body else gonna take you”

Sherri goes on to say,

“I always wanted more children, we have the same goals

Sherri also mentions how woman would come come up to her and say,

“I’ll carry your baby”

Sherri replied she told them,

“No you will not”

Sal concocted this all on his own, just to collect child support?

Watch the full video here. 

Sherri was very involved in the surrogacy process.  In this same article, it was discussed how Sherri & Lamar used facial recognition technology and how they picked the surrogate now known as Jessica Bartholomew.

Sherri Shepherd Was Involved In The Surrogacy Process Except Signing The Birth Order

 Sherrie Shepherd signed all the paperwork except for the birth order.


A birth order is a legal document declaring who the intended parents will be. (source))

“He [Sal] says Sherri signed all of the papers leading up the surrogacy except the pre-birth order, the order that would allow her name be put on the birth certificate once the surrogate had the baby. ‘Sherri kept forgetting to sign it or she lost it a couple of times. At the time I didn’t think anything about it because she was always so forgetful or losing things but now looking back it seems suspicious. source

If Sherri knew she did not want this child, so why put Jessica Bartholomew, the surrogate through all this trouble? Sherri?

Lamar was asked what went wrong and what lead to divorce;

I couldn’t save Sherri from herself! I tried many times but nothing helped and things got so bad at the end that I could never go back to her now!’ a frustrated Sally explained. ‘We went to a therapist for four years but nothing changed. Sherri has deep emotional issues that she’s been dealing with long before she met me and they are only getting worse.

Lamar finally explains;

Then one day, out of the blue, Sherri asked for a divorce while we were at a session with the therapist. She said she didn’t think she could be the kind of wife I needed her to be

Lamar says he thought Sherri was just in one of her moods and let it go,  Lamar found out two weeks later;

‘But then I found out through some friends that Sherri had hired two attorneys and was getting ready to file for divorce.

For those of you think he had this master plan to move to California since they recognize surrogacy laws–not so fast.

‘But that’s when I packed up and moved back to Los Angeles. I never gave up my Los Angeles apartment, and it was the smartest thing I have ever done. ‘To this day, I remember my father always told me to always have your own place because you never know when you will need it and always have a nice black suit.

Lamar currently lives in a small two-bedroom apartment in a four-story building with underground parking for the tenants. (source)

Sherri went as far as to make sure little L.J., had no medical insurance.  Sherri gets insurance through the Actors Guild, check out the letter below from Sherri’s attorney to Lamar’s attorney regarding the insurance;

The letter states,


Dear Deb,

Please advise Mr. Sally that Lamar Jr. has no legal relationship to my client and, it follows, the baby is not a covered dependent on Ms. Shepherd’s insurance plan.

Mr. Sally should not be using the health insurance for medical services provided to the child as these claims will not be honored by the carrier.

Lamar said his attorney tried to explain to Sherri;

 “My attorney tried to convince Sherri that it would not reflect on the case at all and that it would not imply that she was taking responsibility as a parent to have the child on her insurance but still refused and told me to get on Medicaid,”

And that’s what Lamar did — so now, because of this selfish woman whose name is: Sherrie Shepherd who offered Sal $150.000 to not have her name on the Birth Certificate, but now don’t wanna pay, this isn’t a poker game, Sherri.

“She offered me a settlement of $150,000, but it was not to have her name on the birth certificate. I can’t do that to my son,” he said before denying reports that he’s a “gold digger.” “There’s no amount of money to ease my worry about my son. If she would just do the right thing and we co-parent… That’s all I want.”

So for everyone getting on Sal and questioning;

How can Sal file for divorce and ask for Full Custody but still want child support?”

This is how:

When you marry someone who is unhinged like Sherri Shepherd is; that is how. When your ‘wife” leads you to believe she wants to start a family and when you can’t do it the natural way; you find out she can’t use her own eggs so you then use a surrogate, then your moody wife has mood swings day in and out, plays games, drags you to therapy, tells you; it’s your sperm, it’s not my baby” tells all your friends you are divorcing your him–in reality; you are waiting for your husband to make the first move so you can tell the world he “tricked you”does not sign the birth order although the process was started and when the baby is born; not only do you not acknowledge the child;  you do everything you can so the baby is not covered by insuranceThis is how you can file for Full Custody and still want child support–just like Lamar Sally did; Lamar also requested Sherri have visitation rights.  You can file like Lamar did because you and your “spouse” entered an agreement with another person; Jessica Bartholomew, who took time out of her life to carry the baby for you who now may be financially responsible for the child. That is how you can file for divorce and ask for Full Custody and Child Support.

Like I said, Sherri is a hypocrite to even worry about how many of Kenya Moore’s fans who may or may not be there in 10 years.

“All I can do is to take care of my son the best way I know how but I feel sorry for Sherri,” Sally said. “I don’t hate her or have any bitterness but one day she is going to have to sit down and explain to LJ that she turned her back on him and I don’t know how she is going to do that.”

Don’t hold your breathe Sal.

What’s sickening is, the State Of Pennsylvania is going after the surrogate; Jessica Bartholomew for Child Support.

Shame on you Sherri Shepherd!
Why do women get a pass in situations like this? Where is the outrage for this child? These same people who condone Sherri’s actions would be calling for Sal to not ever work again and would harass anyone who gave him a job. 


On April 21, 2015, a Pennsylvania judge ordered Sherri Shepherd’s name to be on Lamar Jr.’s birth certificate and to financially support her son. Lamar told People;

“I’m glad it’s over, but I feel sad what it had to come to. Now I can go back to L.A. and tend to my son.”

Update 2:

According to TMZ “sources”, Lamar & Sherri struck a deal;

Sherri and estranged hubby Lamar Sally have struck a settlement agreement in which the ex-‘View‘ co-host will pay $4,100 a month in child support. The monthly obligation increases to $4,600 when the kid turns 13.

TMZ goes on to say;

According to the settlement agreement, Sherri is allowed to pursue her fraud claim and if the appeals court rules in her favor, her child support obligations will disappear.

Good luck with that, Sherri, see video above.

And there’s a Sofia Vergara twist … the couple has embryos in storage and Sherri wants them destroyed. Lamar is undecided. According to the settlement, if Lamar chooses to bring the embryos to term, Sherri will not have to pay child support.

So, Lamar is undecided.. Okay.. I get it. The embryois don’t have Sherri’s DNA, perhaps Lamar may just meet someone? I know I am sounding “Team Lamar” on this one, many of you don’t know; my husband and I used a surrogate, the process is tedious and you are involved, I can see through Sherri’s fraud here.

Sherri’s not walking away completely empty-handed says TMZ.  Sherri will get to hold onto the rights to her show, “Funny Mothers” which is currently in development.

We predict the same will happen with “Funny Mothers” as what happened with Sherri’s defunct show, “Sherri” Cancelled after one season.


People are just not that in to you. shrugs

Update 3

Sherri Shepherd tells.. guess who? People

I Was Scared Lamar Would Leave Me

I swear, go read it.

Sherri was at a charity event, I am going to assume Sherri was paid and did not attend out of the goodness of her heart since ice runs through her veins and quite frankly, doesn’t wear her heart on her sleeve. Sherri spoke of the surrogacy scandal by saying;

“I’m the type of person I feel like as long as you can get up, you have another chance,” she said. “I’ve gone through stuff a nasty divorce, nasty custody battle but for me, I get up and I smile. I go through it and I make it through.”

I’m not touching that one.

As far as what people think?

“As long as the people who know me, know my heart and they know my love for my son and my character and integrity. That’s all I have to stand on,” she said. “As long I can look at myself in the mirror and look up and go ‘Did I do what you told me to do’ I’m good.”

No mention of the child you paid to be conceived.

Funny Mothers? Ring a bell?

Sherri also told People,

“I am appealing the ruling that happened and he gets his settlement every month,” she said of Sally. “He’s happy. There nothing I can do. It’s out of my hands. You move on and I have a son. I have to take care of him so everything is good.”

“Settlement every month” You mean: Child Support, Sherri? As far as the son, surely she was referring to Jeffrey.

I just can’t with this monster of person.
