Despite earning millions, the tough courtroom judge still shops at discount stores.
Friends revealed to Closer, that fame and fortune hasn’t changed Judge Judy.
The 73-year-old has extended her contract for her show, seeing it through until 2020 and is reportedly worth $300 million.
Closer reports Judy still buys ‘dime store cosmetics, drives a nondescript SUV and above all else, relishes time she spends with her five children and 13 grandchildren.’
‘I had very practical, wonderful parents who had a good moral compass and a work ethic,’ says Judy.
A friend adds, ‘Judy has always had feet firmly planted on the ground.’
'When it comes to everyday things, Judy hates to overpay.’
A store associate at Saks Fifth Avenue told the magazine she hits the sale racks.
‘She’s definitely not a shopaholic,’ she said. ‘There are plenty of instances where she comes in just to browse but doesn’t make a purchase.’
The Judge even shops at ‘Cosco and Walmart,’ the friend reveals.
‘She will not be played for the fool, and she isn’t going to pay $100 for something that you can get just as well for $15.’
