Lamar Sally – Sherri Shepherd’ Husband



We don’t like to spread bad news but apparently many sites are reporting the split between Comedian, talk show host and author, –slimmed down –Sherri Shepherd and her husband of only three-years Lamar Sally!

What happened? They looked so head over heals for each other!




The two were introduced by Jay Tucker, fiancé of Shepherd’s close friend Niecy Nash.

The couple tied the knot on August 13, 2011, Sherri then 44, looked beautiful in a custom designed floor-sweeping Rivini gown. Lamar and Sherri, became engaged in December 2010 after dating for more than a year. Lamar automatically became Sherri’s son –from previous marriage with comedian Jeff Tarpley –Jeffrey’s step-dad.

Sherri who was ecstatic at having a second chance at love, shared how Lamar asked for her hand in marriage. And it was no ordinary proposal for the View co-host.

“Upon arriving back to Lamar’s home in Los Angeles from a trip to San Diego, Sherri was surprised to find their accommodations had been decorated with lights by one of Sal’s best friends, her dog was wearing a Santa beard and hat, and, in the middle of a dish of Sherri’s favorite but forbidden M&M’s (she is diabetic), was a tiny little box,” the statement said.


After their 2011 wedding, a report surfaced that Lamar a –Television writer/sitcom writer –was still close with an ex-girlfriend, and that he had even invited her to his wedding to Shepherd.

All without telling Sherri that she was a former lover of his.



And we all know if there is something Sherri can’t forgive is precisely cheating! After she divorced the father of her kid and had been married for 8-years in 2009 when she found out that he was having an affair and that his mistress was pregnant!

The split seems to be final, Lamar has moved to L.A. while the talk show host will keep living in NYC.

Sally is known for his work on Rodney (2004), It’s My Time to Talk (2013). 43-year-old Lamar Richard Sally also worked at Los Angeles Academy Media Technology Intuitive Knowledge LLC and has lived in

Los Angeles, CA; Pacific Palisades, CA; Moreno Valley, CA; Allendale, NJ.


Do you think the reason of the split is because Lamar cheated on her?
