Judge Judy Finally Breaks Her Tech Ban With a New Online Series
Technophobic TV sensation Judge Judy Sheindlin is taking her brand of biting legal wit to the Internet with a new interactive online show. Titled ‘What Would Judy Say?,’ the just-launched series features the 69-year-old Jewish grandmother and daytime TV judge dropping no-nonsense knowledge on scandalous topics like living out of wedlock and pre-nups.
“Don’t kvetch and complain if you’re not a ‘Judge Judy’ fan, find another forum,” says Her Honor in a short intro to the new series. But those who are are invited to submit stories relevant to the topic, which Sheindlin will present “a couple of times each month.”
It’s an interesting format for Sheindlin, whose earned big ratings on her daytime show by shutting up litigants and shunning technological advances like cellphones and the Internet.
However, the world’s changed a lot since ‘Judge Judy’s’ 1996 premiere, and the tube’s most celebrated legal curmudgeon is finally getting with the times. Indeed, it’s comforting to know the next time an ex refuses to return your flatscreen, Judy Judy is just a click away. Check out her intro below.
