Sherri Shepherd Denied Appeal in Surrogacy Case

March 3, 2016

(UPI)  – The Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied Sherri Shepherd’s appeal in her surrogacy case Tuesday, declaring her the legal mother of an 18-month-old boy who was born to a surrogate. The 48-year-old television personality, who was a co-host on The View from 2007 to 2014, had asked the court to review a 2015 court decision declaring her the legal mother of the child born to a surrogate after she and ex-husband Lamar Sally split in August 2014.
