Let's face it: It's our guilty pleasure to watch Judge Judy reprimand litigants like they were kindergarteners on her eponymous television show. So immensely popular is the "Judge Judy" courtroom "reality" show that Judy Sheindlin was able to afford a $6.7 million Fifth Avenue apartment in New York City -- which she's now listed for a much heftier $9 million. (Come on, Judy. As if you don't make enough money.)
We have to admit that when we first laid eyes on the television judge's 3,000-square-foot apartment, we were floored. We expected something sharp, no-nonsense, a little severe -- a reflection of her on-air persona. Instead, Sheindlin's apartment is shockingly cheerful: sun-splashed living spaces, striped cream walls, graceful statues, soft pastel hues and florals -- almost classically feminine decor. Oh, Judge Judy, you're full of surprises, aren't you?
