Sherri Sheperd Speaks Out About Divorce: “You Can’t Beat Yourself Up”
Sherri Shepherd is finally speaking out about her divorce from Lamar Sally.
“I say you can’t beat yourself up when you know you’ve made the wrong choice in a guy,” Shepherd told Us Weekly. “You look, you do some introspective work, and you try not to make the same mistake.”
She added, “If you do, get back up, dust your feet off, and start walking and moving forward.”
Last month, Sherri’s estranged husband filed for legal separation, citing irreconcilable differences. Just weeks later, The View co-host turned around and filed for divorce after nearly three years of marriage. Sally and Shepherd are expecting a baby boy via surrogate this summer.
“Have really good friends around you, so you have a soft landing place,” she told the publication regarding how she is handling the split. And when she wants to go off on social media, she says that, “I have a lot of really wonderful friends [who] say ‘erase that!'”
Sherri has a son, Jeffrey, 9, from her previous marriage to Jeffrey Tarpley.
