Sherri Shepherd took to Twitter yesterday in a tirade against a man who had insulted her eldest son just as news broke that the former "View" panelist's surrogate had given birth to her second son.
"At a carnival & Jeffrey asked the guy a question – he told Jeffrey he talks too much – I am beyond pissed – going over there right now," the 47-year-old television personality posted.
In a series of live tweets, Shepherd went on to defend her 9-year-old son.
"Went to guy and told him 'you don't ever tell a child he talks too much' and he said 'he does' I said 'you are a nasty, rude & unhappy man,'" she tweeted. "I told the guy 'I don't know what you didn't accomplish in your life but don't even put your issues on a child – it's unacceptable.' The guy said he was sorry and I said 'don't tell me tell my son,' I brought Jeffrey over and he apologized to him."
Meanwhile, it remains unclear if Shepherd was present for the birth of her second child via surrogate on Tuesday. The former "View" co-host is currently embroiled in a bitter custody dispute over the baby with estranged husband Lamar Sally. The pair were married almost three years before announcing their split in May. It was then that Sally asked for custody of the child via surrogate in court documents. However, the separated couple has not yet reached an agreement.
Just as Shepherd's legal battle against Sally got underway, the star's custody agreement with first husband Jeff Tarpley heated up. He has accused Shepherd of neglecting their son Jeffrey for her career, causing her to defend working mothers on "The View." Tarpley's custody request was denied by a judge last month.
"Keep the prayers coming," Shepherd posted around the same time as the courtroom victory. "Still got more battles."
