Sherri Shepherd’s name has been in the news quite a bit over the past year and half with the divorce and child support battle of the child she and ex husband Lamar Sally enlisted a surrogate to carry. And while Lamar has done plenty of talking, Sherri has been rather mute on the subject.
In a recent interview with theGrio, she explained why.
“I just want to say thank you for supporting me. I just appreciate people knowing that behind all of the tabloids, fodder and exclusives from people, there has to be another side to the story.
For me, and anyone who’s spiritual can understand this, in my prayer time, I heard a little soft voice that said, ‘You don’t have to say anything because I will defend you, so you just keep your mouth shut,’ and I have chosen to obey that.
I’ve chosen to take the high road. I don’t disparage anyone. I appreciate people that feel like there’s got to be more than what I’m reading off of tabloids. I just appreciate people standing by me, because at the end of the day, all you can stand on is your character and your integrity, and I hope that people who’ve known me throughout the years and the love that I have for my son, that things that people say about me don’t match up to who I am.”
While people certainly have ideas about what Sherri should and shouldn’t have done in this situation, I personally am not questioning her moral character. Still, I’m sure from her vantage point it might feel like something else. Either way, when you hear God’s voice, it’s imperative to follow directions. And since God said He’s going to defend her, I wonder if we’ll ever get to hear this other side of the story.
Do you view Sherri Shepherd differently since the dissolution of her marriage and the child support battle?
