Katie had lunch with Judge Judy at Katz’s Deli on the Lower East Side in New York City to discuss health, politics and why Katz’s Deli is so special.
“[My husband] Jerry and I came here the night before I went to California to shoot the pilot for my show,” Judy revealed.
Katie and Judy then placed their orders – the duo decides to share - starting out with a frankfurter and of course Katz’s famous pastrami sandwich.
“My husband thinks she should run for President!” a woman yells across the restaurant which starts a whole new topic -– will Judge Judy run?
“Would you ever get involved in politics? I think you would win,” Katie said.
“I don’t like rule by committee,” Judy responded, ending her political career entirely. “I don’t need any of that -– I have a good gig.”
Judy also gives Katie a tip on how to handle that pastrami sandwich: “Take off the bread and use a knife and fork,” she said. “You’ll live longer.”
When it comes to health, Judy has a set of rules. She and Jerry eat two meals a day.
Breakfast at 10:30 a.m. or 11 a.m. and then what she calls “dunch” at 4:30 p.m. or 5:00 p.m.
The courtroom queen also works out every day, but don’t be fooled. She doesn’t need any help in the gym.
“I don’t have a trainer because I don’t take instruction well.”
