Sherri Shepherd’s staying mum about her personal drama involving estranged husband Lamar Sally and a newborn from a surrogate mother, except for saying “it's very public and it's very painful."

"We can't say anything about that," Shepherd, 47, said on The Wendy Williams Show Wednesday. "I have a lot of lawyers and I'm in court right now.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, a surrogate mother, initially earmarked for the TV personality, delivered a baby boy named L.J. in Pennsylvania Aug. 5, an event Sally was there for, but Shepherd was not.

The ex-panelist, of The View fame, isn’t claiming to be the boy’s mother, as she’s said that her estranged spouse did not disclose all detail regarding the terms of the surrogacy; and believes he will try to pursue a court to force her to pay him child support. (Sally told People that Shepherd initially agreed to the arrangement less than a year after they wed one another in 2011, but backpedaled three months before the baby was born.)

Shepherd on Wednesday made clear the situation will not be a talking point — “I’m not Tori and Dean, I don't get paid to talk about my life,” she told Williams — deferring to the talk show host.

“When people tweet me I always say, 'Go to Wendy, she knows what's going on — you can ask Wendy about my life,’” she said.

Shepherd, who has a 9-year-old boy named Jeffrey from her previous marriage to first husband Jeff Tarpley, is slated to attend a hearing on the matter in Pennsylvania Oct. 2.
