Marlo Thomas sent “Sherri” staffers into “mama bear mode,” we’re told, when she “fat shamed” host Sherri Shepherd on her own show.

The “That Girl” star appeared on Shepherd’s new talk show Tuesday to promote multiple projects, including her upcoming film “Magical Christmas Village.”

But she stunned folks behind-the-scenes when, at the end of her segment, when she reminded Shepherd about a time their paths had crossed.

“I interviewed you for my AOL show,” she recalled, adding “and you were a big one!”

Thomas then dug deeper by putting her hand around her body and blowing her face out in an attempt to imitate Shepherd’s old size.

“You’ve lost a lot of weight, but you’ve still got the boobies! That’s good,” she said.

Comedian Shepherd, who revealed she “lost like 35 pounds,” hopped off the seat and embraced her with laughter, but we’re told staffers didn’t find it funny at all.

Shepherd says she has lost 35 pounds.
