It took me a while to warm up to Sherri Shepherd when she first came on The View. But during her tenure there, she has grown up a lot. She even understands the earth is round now. She’s endeared herself to me with her reality gossip updates and because of her BFF, comedian Bone Hampton, who I got to know on Twitter when I first started blogging. I try to keep my distance from the people I blog about because it just makes it easier for me to be objective. The situation with Sherri is so personal, it feels weird to even blog about it. So I am going to ask that your comments be respectful on this post.
I’ve been reading the rumors for days and they are varied and mostly wrong I imagine. On site said that Sherri was divorcing Sal because he has not worked since the marriage. I found that hard to believe. I know that Sal was very close to her son and I think Sherri would probably put up with a lot before taking the father figure out of her son’s life. I don’t know what is going on for sure but it must be bad.
Tonight, TMZ is reporting that Sal has begun the proceedings for a divorce. It’s odd he is the one that is filing. Odder still, he is requesting full custody of their unborn child! It seems Sherri and Sal who have only been married for a couple of years hired a surrogate to carry their baby. Sherri had a very rough pregnancy with her first child. According to TMZ the child is due to be born in late July. Sal is trying to get a court order now saying the child goes to him. Heartbreaking.
He is also trying to get the prenup thrown out based on fraud and is asking for spousal support. Can he ask for spousal support when he technically only filed for legal separation because he has only lived in California for three months? Wait, Sherri lives in NYC. So it seems Sal moved out three months ago.
Honestly, I hope nothing about this story is true. Sherri has not said anything yet. If she goes to work on Monday The View will be very interesting. So very sad.
