Sherri Shepherd Makes Uncomfortable Joke About Children on The View, Blasts Ex-Husband in Wake of Custody Ruling

Originally posted 05/28/2015 12:25PM

Sherri Shepherd learned a month ago that she would be held legally responsible for the child she had via surrogate with her ex-husband Lamar Sally. And on Thursday's episode of The View, she didn't hide her displeasure with the decision.

After Shepherd glowingly discussed her 10-year-old biological son Jeffrey, co-host Raven-Symoné said to the panel, "I want a baby so bad. I've wanted one since I was 15."

Shepherd barely took a breath's pause before replying, "Girl, I got one or two you could have of mine."

Inside Sherri Shepherd's Surrogacy Ruling: What Happens Next

Former View co-host Sherri Shepherd is now facing a legal bill to pay alimony and child support after a Pennsylvania judge handed down the ruling on Tuesday that she's the legal mother of a now 8-month-old baby with ex-husband Lamar Sally.

"Now that Sherri's name is on the birth certificate, it is possible she may have to reimburse the state of California for the health insurance and WIC benefits, to cover the cost of formula," Sally's lawyer Tiffany Palmer tells PEOPLE. In addition her firm will be seeking "tens of thousands of dollars" from Shepherd in legal fees.

"The ultimate outcome is that this baby has two legal parents, and the parents are Lamar Sally and Sherri Shepherd," adds Palmer.

"She has to be responsible for this child that she conceived and created."

It's just acting!

Sherri Shepherd says at least one person found her portrayal of the evil stepmother in Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella on Broadway a little too believable: her 9-year-old son Jeffrey.

"Jeffrey was scared of me," the former View co-host, 47, told PEOPLE Tuesday at the #NYTough Comedy Showcase at Caroline's on Broadway. "He didn't like me playing the evil stepmom. He'd rather I were playing Cinderella."

While Sherri Shepherd has kept mostly mum on the legal battle with ex-husband Lamar Sally over newborn baby L.J., born via surrogate on Aug. 5, the former View co-host is speaking out to pal Wendy Williams.

During an appearance on William's daytime talk show on Wednesday, Shepherd wouldn't elaborate on the details of the drama, but did confirm she's still at odds with her ex.

"We can't say anything about that," she told Williams. "I have a lot of lawyers and I'm in court right now and it's very public and it's very painful."

Sally talked exclusively to PEOPLE in an interview where he claims that he and Shepherd, 47, agreed to have a child via surrogate – using Sally's sperm and a donor egg, after doctors found that Shepherd's eggs were not viable – within a year of their 2011 wedding.
