How I Found Out My Ex-Husband Cheated On Me, From Sherri Shepherd (VIDEO)

Sherri Shepherd, Emmy Award-Winning Cohost of The View, went through a painful divorce after her first marriage, and she was courageous enough to share some of the details regarding her ex-husband’s infidelity with us.

“I told my ex one day, ‘God loves you because you should have been dead right now,’ she laughed. Sherri was infuriated when she discovered her ex-husband had cheated on her. “When I found out he cheated, I wanted to kill him. I looked for a lamp to hit him in the head!” Sherri recalled.

Instead of resorting to violence and anger, Sherri found solace in faith and in her son, swearing to herself to love her son, Jeffrey, more than she hated her ex-husband for cheating on her. “That’s what forgiveness looks like,” she said.
