Judy Is Judged Richest Jewish Female Entertainer

Published on January 22, 2007 with No Comments

Judge JudyJudith Sheindlin, better known as the formidable Judge Judy, has emerged as the richest Jewish female entertainer in the US, according to business magazine Forbes.

In a league of 20, Sheindlin came 13th, with a net worth of $95m, beating other celebrities including Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman and Christina Aguilera.

However, she still has a long way to go to topple number one Oprah Winfrey, who is currently worth $1.5bn.

Judge Judy was first shown in 1996 and is now syndicated across the world. The show features the 64-year-old – who is known for her direct, no-nonsense style – presiding over small claims cases. Prior to her TV fame, she worked as a lawyer before making it as a judge.

Meanwhile, if you’re wondering why Barbra Streisand is absent from the list, Forbes says it is not including “non-working celebs who essentially live off royalties”, despite the fact that Streisand has had a busy couple of years, touring, recording a new album and starring in the film Meet The Fockers.
