Seen here at The 2014 Samsung Hope For Children Gala because sitting next to Jenny McCarthy will destroy any person’s sense of irony, Sherri Shepherd is reportedly trying to bail on a surrogate child due next month because she doesn’t want to pay child support to her soon-to-be ex-husband. TMZ reports:

The baby was conceived with Lamar’s sperm, but NOT Sherri’s egg.
Now here’s where it gets tricky. We’re told Sherri does not want custody or even to be considered a parent … because she doesn’t want to get stuck with massive child support payments.
Sherri wants a judge to rule she has no parental rights or responsibilities — which would shut the door to child support. She claims Lamar defrauded her — that he got her to sign on for a surrogate birth knowing full well he would divorce her and then nail her to the wall for child support.

Considering Sherri Shepherd is an outspoken Christian, you’d assume the Godly thing to do would be to arrange some sort of shared custody of the child giving it two loving parents, or at the very least, not put the retention of material wealth over providing for its care. But that would cost Sherri money just to help some stupid kid, and if I had to pick two things God hates more than anything, its babies and poor people. He’s always like, “Yo, we should be able to get rid of them before they’re even born,” and talking about how easy it is for rich people to get into Heaven. “Like sticking a needle in a camel. You can’t fucking miss.”

    Forgot the bit where I was supposed to say: This is the greatest thing I’ve ever read. Well done.

  3. I missed a trick by not going to law school to become a California child custody lawyer…

  4. Christians are mainly concerned with the unborn and ensuring the newly born get Jesus dunked.

      And controlling the sex lives of women.

      I forget are we talking about actual breathing X-tians or the corporate kind?

    And situations like this are exactly why I constantly remind my adopted kid that only biological kids count.

    So? I wouldn’t want to have anything to do with the baby of a man I am divorced from. If it’s not her biological child, that’s all bullshit. She has no responsibility to it. It’s like divorcing your husband and then raising his baby from his mistress. Fuck that.

  7. buzz

    I agree with her logic. It’s her soon to be ex-husband’s sperm and some strange woman’s egg. What’s it have to do with her giving him money to raise the baby?

    Who cares if she is Christian?

      I read somewhere (on the internet, so it must be true) that her husband’s ex-girlfriend is the surrogate. What a mess!

      At the same time, her ex-husband is suing her for sole custody of their son, claiming that Sherri’s an unfit parent.

      I feel bad for her, but at the same time it’s such an interesting clusterfuck. I don’t think I’ve seen anything this complicated in a long time.

  8. “knowing full well he would divorce her and then nail her to the wall for child support.”

    and welcome to the world men live in every day.

    • Mel Gibson's Shrink

      Men you talk of pay child support for their biological children. A world of fucking difference, no?

      • Men pay child support for non biological children all the time. Adoption, fraud, best interests of the child, hell make up any excuse you like and there’s a man writing it on the memo line of a check every month.

    • Yeah, this is something men have to deal with, and it sucks, which is why I sympathize with her even if she is a woman.

    • You beat me to it. They don’t like it when the shoe’s on the other foot, do they? How many thousands of men out there are unknowingly raising kids that aren’t biologically theirs?

      Shit, there are men out there forced to pay child support for kids they know aren’t theirs. The system is fucking broken.

  9. The law on surrogacy is still not settled, but I would guess Ms. Smith is going to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on lawyers’ fees to lose this case.

    The decent thing to do would be to say, “Ok, this is not what I wanted but the child deserves support and I have enough money to pay for it. I’m doing a good thing for a child and screw my ex-husband.”

    But apparently that’s too sane.

  10. I would probably do the same if I was in her position, and I wouldn’t be surprised if her husband really did plan this out. She’s not attractive or intelligent, clearly he was using her for something.

    they should both be sterilized

  12. The fact that the surrogate did not use an egg from Sherri Shepherd is not dispositive in this case.

    What’s dispositive is whether or not she signed an agreement (the surrogacy contract) to support the child.

    If she did, she can spend $250,000 in attorney’s fees if she wants, but she might as well just make origami animals out of $100 bills.

    I have a child with donor egg. I am an ordinary woman. Many women are just like me, ordinary, not wealthy and not famous. We do not identify with Sherri Shepherd at all. We have made many sacrifices to have our children, and the vast majority of us would never abandon our child. I have something personally to say to you Hollywood women:the rest of us women in the infertility world know that you lie, that you used infertility treatments and donor eggs, it is especially obvious when you have fraternal twins over the age of 40. We know that you privately seek help in infertility forums online. Being a mom of a donor conceived child myself, I have no issue with that in itself, but we are all just kind of laughing at you. You know? If you don’t want to keep being the butt of jokes, come out and be open and stop treating donor egg like some shameful secret. It appears that Sheri Shepherd only admitted to using a donor egg when she decided she didn’t want to pay child support.

    Sherry admitted to multiple abortions which I think contributes to her understanding and value of this child that she must have agreed to have even through surrogate. You can’t just eliminate a child because he or she is inconvenient.
