A woman of whom I’m a fan, Judge Judy Sheindlin, was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live, last night. (Full disclosure: I once (key word: once) went out with one of her sons, after her husband, Judge Jerry, heard me on Howard Stern and set us up.) She is the highest paid woman on daytime television, making $45 million a year for five days a month work. Good for her. She had some interesting things to say, including that she thinks that Oprah will return to broadcast daytime TV (Judy was KO’ing her in the ratings while she was still on). Sadly, I think she’s right because, as I predicted before it went on the air, her cable network is a total failure and no-one cares about her anymore. The Oprah.com site traffic plunged after the syndicated show ended, and she’s desperate to return to relevance. So sad, too bad. As you probably know, Judge Judy is typically quite conservative on the bench (so I wonder if she voted for Obama). And she had some great comments about the silly lawsuit a morbidly obese man filed against White Castle. Watch both entertaining videos.
While I’m against this frivolous lawsuit, for the record I’m not a fan of White Castle because they participated in promoting the restaurant chain in a very anti-American, anti-Israel, absolutely fictional movie, “Amreeka,” directed by a lesbian Palestinian Muslim. The movie portrays Americans and Jews as inhuman pieces of crap who constantly attack Arabs and Muslims all over America and Israel. And when I contacted White Castle marketing execs about it, they gave me a million stupid excuses.
