WHY are The VIEW co-host SHERRI’s SHEPHERD’s future in-laws blasting her upcoming nups? Well . . .
“The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd appears delighted to be getting married in August – but behind the scenes she’s in tears because her own father and the groom’s mother are both blasting the union, say sources.
As The ENQUIRER reported earlier this year, Sherri’s dad Lawrence doesn’t think hubby-to-be Lamar “Sal” Sally is good enough for her – and now insiders say that Sal’s mom feels the same about Sherri!
Sherri, 44, and Sal, 40, are slated to tie the knot in her hometown, Chicago, but sadly the broadcaster is devastated that her prospective mother-in-law is unhappy about the match.
“She’s in tears because Sal ‘smother and her own father are not happy for them,” revealed a close friend.
“Sherri has been through one divorce, and now she thinks she has finally met the man of her dreams.”
The entertainer even told her TV audience that her future mother-in-law likes one of Sal’s ex-girlfriends better – and thinks that the talk-show host “talks too much!”
“Sherri and the audience laughed – but her feelings were hurt,” noted the friend.
In January, sources told The ENQUIRER that Sherri’s dad urged her to put off the wedding. He fears Sherri – who has a 6-year-old son – will have to be the breadwinner. He’s also concerned that she’s considering making her new husband her manager.
Concluded the friend: “It seems that Sherri and Sal are finding themselves in the strange position of trying to save their marriage before the wedding.”
