It was revealed last week that Sherri Shepherd's husband Lamar Sally recently filed for a legal separation after two years of marriage. This week, Sally addressed the split and said one the unintended benefits of the divorce process has been his dramatic weight loss.

Sally told Peoplethat he's recently lost "freakin' 50 pounds" while separating from Shepherd, a co-host on ABC's daytime talk show The View. He also joked that the magazine should "use a slim picture, not the fat one from six months ago … I'm on the divorce diet."
