Written by

People who clicked on this with at least a slight interest in Judge Judy, first of all, THANK YOU. Secondly, you’re cool. Third, I need an outlet to talk about Judge Judy because I fell into a huge internet K-hole and I’m obsessed. OBSESSED!

She’s Miss American Dream since she was 53.

Well, actually 52. Did you know Judge Judy started her TV show when she was 52?! Crazy.

She was the first woman to attend law school at American University in 1965. Badass.

She was a family court judge for 25 years and heard over 20,000 court cases before she started her TV career. Amazing.

And you know what? I’m gonna cut the shit right now, here’s a FUN fact: Judge Judy makes $47 million a year.

Better yet: She only has to work 52 days a year.

That means Judge Judy makes over $900,000 a day.

To put that into perspective: Matt Lauer is the second-highest-paid TV personality, only makes $22–$25 million a year, and has to work every. damn. day.

Jennifer Lawrence? She only made a pathetic $46 million in 2016. Tiger Woods? He made a sad $45.5 million.

She currently has a net worth of $290 million.

Annnnnd, get this, losers…

Judge Judy actually owns the rights to her past library, something most famous TV stars don’t even own.

She’s looking to make $200 million by selling her entire back catalogue, which is insane.

Another fun fact: Her show averages more than 10.3 million viewers a day.

Those are higher ratings than a lot of primetime shows.

To sum it up: Judge Judy is a damn queen.

Judge Judy is wise.

Judge Judy is wise.

Judge Judy is rich.

Judge Judy is iconic.

Judge Judy is better than you!!
