Comedian and TV personality Sherri Shepherd may be going through a divorce and two custody battles at the moment, but she can certainly count on View co-host Jenny McCarthy to help her weather the storm.
When asked how her colleague is doing, Jenny couldn’t help but heap praise on the 47-year-old. “[Sherri is] the best mom I’ve seen next to myself. The best!” Jenny exclusively tells Closer. “[She] is the most inspirational, happy, enthusiastic, strong woman I know. She’s my hero.”
The newly engaged star continued to compliment Sherri’s parenting skills, labeling her co-worker as a “loving, caring, strong,” mother. Jenny tells Closer, “I would trust her with my son Evan – [she’s] that good of a mom.”
Sherri is currently locked in two heated custody battles, one with estranged husband Lamar Sally and the other with ex-husband Jeff Tarpley.
Lamar is seeking full custody of the couple’s unborn child — due via surrogate in July — while Jeff filed an emergency request last month to modify the pair's original custody agreement, citing neglect of the couple's 9-year-old son Jeffrey Jr. by the co-host.
