Sherri Shepherd's Ex's 'Rules' Included 'Submit' to Him & Don't Get Fat

The View's Sherri Shepherd needs to run, not walk, away from her failed marriage with Lamar Sally. Earlier this week, we were shocked to hear that Lamar wants full custody of their unborn son, who will enter the world in July and be given the name Lamar Sally, Jr. But, okay, we can understand why a dad-to-be who isn't getting along with his spouse might want to secure his relationship with his child before he's born and things get super complicated.

But the latest news about this couple is even crazier. It seems Lamar wanted to add an amendment to the prenup they signed in 2011 -- one that included a whole list of "rules" like: don't get fat. Oh, and the always-romantic demand that Sherri consider it a "joy to submit" to her "husband as a way to honor God."

Sherri, who appeared as a contestant on Season 14 of Dancing With The Stars, refused to sign the lengthy list of rules, and good for her because they are crazytown. But we have to question how she read this list of nutty and demeaning demands and didn't run for the hills ASAP. That's love, people. Or temporary insanity -- I'm not sure which.

Here's a brief rundown of Lamar's expectations. You can read the doc in its entirety here and, boy, is it a worthwhile beach read.

1. "I am happy to be a refuge for my spouse. I am content with what I have and am not obsessed with obtaining material possessions."

2. "It is my joy to submit to my husband as a way to honor God. I am intensely sexual. God created me as a sexual being, and I am committed to being intimate with my husband."

3. "I strive to maintain a healthy body weight and exercise at least 3 times a week."

4. "I enjoy my husband's company more than anyone else's."

Seems totally reasonable, right?! I'm going to guess Lamar considered it a privilege for Sherri to be in his company and required no list of similar rules to keep him under control -- and skinny, which is the single most important thing in a union (I promise I'm being sarcastic). This is one marriage that needs to be over with -- and the sooner, the better.

What would you do if your husband asked you to agree to a list of "rules" like these?

While I love her, I simply can not condone her lifestyle of divorce. She's a sinner and going to hell for her lifestyle. She should have stayed married. Divorce is a plague upon our land.

The only person going to hell is you SnappleQueen. Judge not lest ye be judged. And, Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Unless you're perfect, which I doubt, who are you to judge. People like you are a plague on our land!

@ Snapplequeen. If your husband were abusive, you would stay married because it's a sin against the lord? Or if some little girl is forced into a marriage she never wanted, she should'nt try to escape? I'm not against religion.But it's the judgemental people like snapplequeen who give it a bad name.

@Snapplequeen. So if your husband were abusive towards you, you would stay because it's a sin against the lord? Or when some little girl is forced into a marriage she never wanted, she should'nt try to escape because she will go to hell? I'm not for or against religion. But it's people like you that give it a bad reputation.

@snapplequeen. I'm a Christian and I believe that women should be submissive to there husband (of course within reason) but the Bible also tells the husband to love his wife like Jesus loves the church...and your husband cannot claim to love you if he is asking you to sign a paper like that. I do believe that divorce comes to easy for people and you shouldn't get divorce without a REALLY good reason. But we are also not to judge others.

Hahaha! Snapplequeen!! You just gave me a good laugh. Thank you. You actually read this article, and think that staying married to this loser would be best?? Wow. I'm so glad I'm not you! You must live a pretty miserable life.

SnsppleQueen, if my husband treated me like this, I wouldn't get a divorce. I would stab him in the face.

Snapp... SnappleQueen

I like all the idiots who responded negatively to me for saying the same words Sherri has used to describe people. Y'all bring stupidity to a new level. But I still love you sinners who support divorce. Hate y'all's sins of trashing marriage vows and the promises you made before God, but I love you. Really, I do. Ha!

People too dumb to understand sarcasm & see why it's relevant really are hilarious. Definitely screen saving this one. Perfect.

Maybe if Sherri spent time worrying about her own life & not trying to judge other people's lives she wouldn't have made such a terrible choice in a husband. Or maybe she sticks her nose in other people's business to avoid looking at her own mess.
