Sherri Shepherd Admits D.L. Hughley and Steve Harvey Warned Her Not to Marry Ex Lamar Sally [VIDEO]

*Sherri Shepherd opened up about her 2014 divorce from screenwriter Lamar Sally during a recent sit down with comedian D.L. Hughley on his talk show.

Hughley keeps it real by noting that he wasn’t too fond of Sally when he first met him, and Shepherd said he wasn’t alone in his opinion of her ex, atlantablackstar.com reports. 

“The first time I saw him, I swear to God, I said that’s a sorry-ass dude,” said Hughley.

“Everybody said that,” Shepherd replied. “Steve Harvey said it, Barbara Walters said it, Whoopi [Goldberg] wouldn’t come to my wedding. Everybody tried to tell me. The only person who showed up was Kym Whitley, because she got a free iPad and she was my bridesmaid. We gave away free iPads.”

When asked why she didn’t take heed to the warnings, Shepherd explained how she was lonely at the time and in need of companionship.

“I was in New York doing The View and I was lonely. That’s what it was. You can’t do stuff out of fear and being lonely, ” she said. “All of the women of The View were amazing but they had lives. Whoopi would go home and eat her brownies, she was gone for the night. Then Elizabeth Hasselbeck had her family and Joy [Behar] had hers so I was out there by myself. I didn’t have custody of Jeffrey, I’m fighting for custody of Jeffrey, and Niecy Nash introduced me to this person.”

After the couple crashed and burned, they fought over custody of their child born via surrogate. The baby boy arrived in August 2014, months after the former couple split. The following year, a judge ruled that Shepherd had to pay Sally child support.

Sherri also revealed to D. L. that as her ex was coming for her money, she and Niecy Nash (who introduced her to Lamar) had a falling out for a short time.

“We had a big blowout. We did,” she said. “I said, ‘Niecy, I will never go out with anybody you introduce me to.’ We came to a meeting of the minds yesterday, we were together, she said, ‘Would you just go out?’ I said, ‘Yeah, but I’m not going to get married to any of your recommendations.’”

Sherri also shared how Niecy had her back and confronted Sally over his money-grubbing shenanigans.

“We see the good and that’s what Niecy saw,” she said. “But one time he had taken me to court for money and she called him in her little closet because she didn’t want her husband to hear. Her husband and him used to be friends, and she cursed him out. He said, ‘If you call me one more time, I’m going to tell your husband.’ She was going off. All of a sudden she heard behind her, ‘Niecy!’ It was her husband. My friend did some cursing out.”

Sherri and Sally were married from 2011 to 2015. She was previously married to Jeff Tarpley from 2001 to 2010.
