A hustle has been spreading for weeks on the Web. Headlines like: “Judy Announces She Is Leaving the ‘Judge Judy’ Show.”
LIE! CON! FLIMFLAM DAMN SHAM!
I had dinner with Judge Judy and her husband, Judge Jerry, Monday night, hours after the Internet regurgitated what got labeled “The New York Times,” “Today,” “O Magazine,” “Stylewatch” and “Redbook.”
Friends, family and fans of Judy Sheindlin have reached out to flag these horrible, fake sites that may give your machine a virus with one click. Judy’s network and lawyers are already unleashed. It’s a con job. It said she’s leaving her top-rated, 10 million daily viewers, daytime’s all-time No. 1 program, 23 record-breaking seasons, “to pursue her new skincare line and dream.”
BUNK! JUNK! SKUNK GUNK!
Beware of any Web site that says, “Sponsors pay millions to advertise . . . [they’re] furious because she failed to disclose her massive skincare empire to CBS . . . which is actually a HUGE competitor to the show’s sponsor L’Oréal because Judy’s product is half the price and twice as effective as their competing product.”
She’s pictured on “TV” discussing her “wildly popular anti-aging skincare line,” which “she spent the past two years developing” and that her “highly potent and effective anti-aging products . . . sold out within ten minutes” and that now “plastic surgeons are finding it harder to book patients.”
P.S. It’s B.S. NO SKINCARE LINE EXISTS. NO NOTHING ZERO NADA NIENTE NISHT.
Headlines quote Barbara Walters — who didn’t know whatthehellthis was — praising it. Also Vanna White, Sherri Shepherd, Meredith Vieira and Rosie O’Donnell burbling, “With [Judy’s cream] I wake up looking younger and more radiant.” Yeah. Right. Lotsaluck.
Offering a free trial, the gimme gimmick is: “The only thing you’ll need to pay for is the discounted shipping rate, which is less than $6! . . . act quickly . . . there’s only a limited amount of free samples.”
It’s nonexistent dog poo. FAKE. CRAPOLA. MERDE.
The FBI — marginally on our Russian kerfuffle — hears Moscow might relabel the goo attributed to Judge Judy.
It’ll read Commissar Katerinachenkovitch-drek.
Filmmaker directs folks to vote
Oscar-nominated “Black Swan” director Darren Aronofsky, who produced “Jackie,” and “White Boy Rick” — may his type increase — produced a countrywide Get Out the Vote video with additional Instagram, Twitter, Facebook promotion. It features activists for indigenous rights, immigrant rights, rights for the disabled, climate justice, transgender equality, gun control, etc.
Darren: “First-timers impact elections. We’re working with them so in November, the 18-to-20s who rarely participate will vote their issues, inspire more equitable communities and be heard by those who’ve ignored our country’s future.”
Baring soles on the Upper East
Thirty Mad Ave. stores within 12 blocks are dark. Gone. Out. Closed. Empty. Harrys of London just slid into a 57th and Park men’s shoe store. Joseph Fiennes and tennis’ Novak Djokovic wear them. Common flashed his to Jimmy Fallon. They start at $395. The soles are called whatever’s Technogel.
Please try to pay attention
You can’t keep a good book down. I hear that Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing the SS” sold 140,000 copies first six days out . . . Can’t keep Tyrannosaurus Tyra down. December Tyra Banks is back as Eve in the film “Life-Size 2” . . . And Emmy-winning comedian Tiffany Haddish is doing “The Oath,” a satirical movie about pledging presidential loyalty . . . Actress Sachi Parker on her mom, Shirley MacLaine: “I can’t be told ‘dress this way’ or ‘look like that.’ I have to be me. I can’t BS myself.”
