Springer Wouldn’t Have Done TV If Mother Was Alive

Published on October 26, 2007 with No Comments

Jerry¬†Springer says he¬†is “embarrassed” by his long-running TV chat show, insisting he never would have made it if his mother was alive.

The former politician, 63, reveals he would have been deeply ashamed if his mum – a Jewish refugee who fled Nazi Germany – had watched him on The Jerry Springer Show, which sees dysfunctional guests come to blows in front of a studio audience.

“I wouldn’t be doing the show if my mom was alive,” he reveals. “(I’d be embarrassed) because my mom was very proper and I just know my reaction in front of my mom. There are things you don’t say in front of your mother, there are things . . . I’m old-fashioned in that way. So I just know I never would have started the show. I would have said, oh, I can’t do that if Mom is watching.”
