BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA: It’s Thanksgiving season and our favorite celebrities are being spotted out and about doing their shopping. Judith Sheindlin, or as we lovingly know her, Judge Judy, was recently seen in Beverly Hills as she looked absolutely sharp in her casual outfit.
Judge Judy, 80, wasn't solo on her Thanksgiving shopping run as her husband of over 45 years, Jerry Sheindlin, was snapped walking alongside his famous wife. Sheindlin is her second husband, after being married to Ronald Levy from 1964 to 1976. Interestingly, Judy had divorced Sheindlin owing to the stress after her father’s death in 1990, only to remarry him a year later.
For the outing, the long-time couple appeared calm and casual in their autumnal looks. Judy opted for a beige full-sleeved sweater, which she paired with blue loose-fitting jeans. She wore a black belt with a gold-colored buckle and also had a sling pouch hung across her torso. She wore her iconic oval glasses and finished her look with blue sneakers and a gold watch as she held hands with her husband.
Meanwhile, Jerry wore a navy-blue button-up shirt and black jeans, completing the look with black sneakers. He looked buoyant in sunglasses as he strolled along the sidewalk with his wife.
The appearance comes a year after the end of ‘Judge Judy’, the iconic show that catapulted her to fame. The show ran for an astounding 25 years. She has now launched another show called ‘Justice Judy’ on IMDb TV. "We left on top, which is perfect," she told People. "Amazon had the confidence in me to say, 'Let's do it in streaming. Let's let you do your thing in a fresh version with new people.' And I'm excited!" While Judy only expected her first show to go for 3-4 years at best, it became a massive success and made her one of the highest-paid people on TV, with a whopping annual earning of $47 million. This came with her negotiating her salaries for many years in tandem with rising TV ratings.
She also had some sage advice for those negotiating their salaries as she did. "You have to make yourself indispensable — and that is irrespective of what you do," she said. "Once you've done that and have leverage, make a reasonable demand and know what the commodity is worth."
