Just weeks after Sherri Shepherd's ex-husband, Jeffrey Tarpley, alleged in court papers obtained by E! News that the star's busy schedule is causing her to "neglect" their 9-year-old son Jeffrey Jr., Shepherd has broken her silence.
During a segment Monday on The View, the daytime TV personality defended working moms.
"Why do you have to go to work, why do you have to… and you are trying to explain to them mommy is trying to pay the bills," Shepherd said. "Mommy's trying to take care of you."
