Judge Judy Lists Pricey Pied-à-Terre

SELLER: Judy and Jerry Sheindlin
LOCATION: New York City, NY
PRICE: $9,000,000
SIZE: 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: It was only just over three years ago now that the famously cantankerous television scold known as Judge Judy (Sheindlin) shelled out $6,750,000 for a two bedroom and 2.5 bathroom corner spread on the 11th floor of the impossibly posh Sherry Netherland building on Fifth Avenue in New York City.

Thanks to an informant we'll call Penny Wise we've just learned that the extraordinarily well-compensated real judge turned boob-toob judge and her husband Jerry Sheindlin—also a real life judge turned (former) t.v. judge—have hoisted their Fifth Avenue pied-à-terre back on the market with an asking price of $9,000,000.

Current listing information shows the approximately 3,000 square foot apartment includes a good-sized foyer that spills into a nearly 30-foot square sun-splashed corner living/dining room with dark hardwood floors, subtly striped wall coverings and multi-million dollar views down Fifth Avenue and over Grand Army Plaza and lower Central Park. A dark paneled room next door makes for a cozy spot to watch some t.v. or read the latest gossip glossies and is convenient to the small but fully equipped kitchen and adjoining laundry room.

The floor plan included with current listing information shows the two bedrooms are well separated for maximum privacy and each has direct access to a private bathroom. The west facing master bedroom isn't particularly big but it does have a snazzy pair of custom-fitted walk-in closets, one larger than many Manhattan studio apartments.

Listing information shows the maintenance charges for the apartment run an pocketbook punishing $17,411 per month but that's a mere pittance for Miz Sheindlin who reportedly earns more than $123,000 per day. That's right, chickens, this lady pulls in more than $123,000 per day doling out televised legal lessons and vituperative moral lashings to the sorts of people who will sue their mother on national television over seven dollars.

Miz Sheindlin and her husband Jerry Sheindlin—who is also a former real judge turned t.v. judge—fly around in a private jet between their variou.s homes that include a penthouse condo in Naples, FL and a 9 bedroom mansion on a spectacularly landscaped estate in high-nosed Greenwich, CT that they bought in September 2007 for $13,200,000.

Despite the "vituperative moral lashings" (or more accurately, because of them) I must say the woman makes me laugh -- given the constant, never-ending parade of brain-dead idiots she must endure, there is not one penny I would begrudge her.

Only in America.

Heavens to Betsy i don't think i would feel comfortable taking a bath with that t.v. set perched so perilously above the water.

She's unspeakably nasty to the dolts recruited for her show. Not pleasant really, but clearly profitable. Amazing how many people like to see barbaric verbal cruelty inflicted on others. I don't.

Sorry 2:51, but I love a good dose of "barbaric verbal cruelty"! Lawd knows there are so many out there who deserve it. Wish i could sic her Honorship onto some of the spammer idiots on this website.

3:07 Of course she does it to please people whose often humble situation prevents them from heaping verbal abuse on others but who can do so vicariously through her and there are millions of them of course. Fortunately there are other judges on TV who use their programs to give some instruction in the law along with entertainment but who avoid abusing people in the process and we can be glad for that.

Hunny, you sound a bit angry! Did you get owned over a $50 TV? Is your bra too tight?! Let those gorgeous Z-cups BREATHE!

That living room looks like a funeral parlor lounge.

A guy I went to high school with was on "Judge Judy" and she called him a "LOZAH!!!" Must say, she was on the money.

I seem to recall that she and the mister made a bet with their friends (whatsshername, the NY Post gossip columnist...) that they could knock down their CT casa and have a newer, bigger one built in three months time? Any hoo, they did indeed.

I remember seeing an intertview with her at the CT place and being surprised 1) how much she brings in and 2) that her taste wasnt so bad. Better there than here.
