Quick-witted, sharp-tongued, and extremely well paid Judge Judy, aka Judy Sheindlin, is usually the one handing out the orders. Now, however, it's doctors' orders she has to follow as she is being held overnight for observation at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after being rushed there this morning during the taping of her show.
According to her rep, she felt nauseous and went to get checked out. She's reportedly doing fine now, and the judge herself told TMZ:
I'm just exhausted, and my body was telling me it needed a day to chill. I was feeling funky this morning ... funky enough that I knew someone should give a gander over what I got ... I'm really fine. A lot of things just zoned together, including the bad news of the world.
As creative with the words as always! I'm not an avid watcher of the show, but I certainly do love some of the sage advice and admonishments she hands out. In honor of the judge, let's review some of the best Judyisms of all time:
"That must be the S-O-D-D-I principle: 'Some other dude done it.'"
"This is my courtroom. I can say what I want. When you become a Judge, we will talk."
"You spent $72 getting your hair done? You wasted your money!"
"The time to change was yesterday; the time to wake up is now."
"Sir don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining."
"Umm is not an answer!"
"Beauty fades. Dumb is forever."
"I don't want you, or anybody else, to think I'm stupid. Old, maybe; stupid, never."
"Touch every third person, and you'll find an idiot."
Good stuff -- why don't I watch that show more often? In any case, it's good to hear she's doing well, and that she'll be back on the air as of April 12. Best wishes for all the tests to turn out okay and that her recovery is as quick as her wit.
