Sherri Shepherd has learned a lot in the months since her very public divorce and nasty custody battle with ex-husband Lamar Sally!

Closer Weekly caught up with Sherri at the Children of Promise, NYC soirée, where she explains why she is NOT currently looking for love.

“Because my purse is not big enough for a prenup and a confidentiality agreement,” she quips. “I cannot carry all of that in my bag!”

And she’s also possibly preparing to return to The View as a regular contributor. “That works for me because I have movies coming out in October and January and a show on the Cooking Channel called Holy & Hungry, so being a fill-in if Whoopi [Goldberg] gets the sniffles is amazing,” she says.
