Jessica Sklar Niederlander SEINFELD ... How Much Do I Dislike Thee

How nauseating is this gold-digger chick?

Leaves her 1st husband (of the Broadway Niederlanders) after 2 weeks to be with that hunk Jerry. Seems that while the lowly Niederlander was only a member of Bally's sports clubs, Jerry was a member of the ritzy Reebok Sports Club. Advantage Jerry. Niederlander only had 100 million in the bank, while Jerry already had 500 million. Advantage Jerry.

Sends 20 pairs of shows to Oprah after hawking her (plagiarized) book. Oprah doesnt need 20 pairs of shoes, you moron! Give the monetary equivilant to a charity, you putz.

'Writes' a book about healthy eating for kids that is a blatant ripoff of a book already published. Jessie was even too lazy to change the cover art work much.

Hey Jerry: Loved 'Seinfeld', but your taste in chicks is the pits.

I was working on a project with one of the elder Niederlanders when the whole dumped-right-back-from-the-honeymoon shenanigans went down.

Oh, the things I heard...

Good times.

That's funny. Bought the original (non-plagiarized) book and made the Spinach Taco Pizza. Hmmm ....

Timely thread here.

Quote:
NEW YORK - An author who claims Jerry Seinfeld's wife plagiarized her cookbook has sued the famous couple, finding no humor when the comedian compared the three-name author to the three-name killers of John Lennon and Martin Luther King Jr.

The lawsuit, seeking unspecified damages for copyright and trademark infringement, was brought Monday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan by Missy Chase Lapine, the author of "The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids' Favorite Meals."

"Jerry Seinfeld is an enormously wealthy and well-known comedian, and Jessica Seinfeld is his wife, but that does not give them license to slander and plagiarize," the lawsuit said.

The Seinfelds' lawyer, Richard Menaker, disputed Lapine's claims of defamation and plagiarism and suggested Lapine was seeking publicity to boost her book's sales.

"Both are without merit," Menaker said. "There's no truth in fact or law to this claim of plagiarism. The idea for Jessica Seinfeld's book came from her own experiences with her family out of her own kitchen."

And he said there was "no basis" for any kind of legal claim of defamation.

"Jerry Seinfeld is entitled to his opinions," Menaker said. "Even though Jerry Seinfeld is a public figure, he doesn't lose his right to free speech because of that."

In October, HarperCollins published Jessica Seinfeld's "Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food."

Hearing about the Seinfeld book in May while promoting her own book, published a month earlier, Lapine complained, and the war of words was under way.

The lawsuit said the Seinfelds were warned even before the book was published that it had blatant similarities to Lapine's book.

Still, when Jerry Seinfeld appeared on CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman" in October, he suggested Lapine was a crackpot and declared his wife not guilty of "vegetable plagiarism," the lawsuit said.

The lawsuit also quoted him telling Letterman: "Now you know, having a career in show business, one of the fun facts of celebrity life is wackos will wait in the woodwork to pop out at certain moments of your life to inject a little adrenaline into your life experience."

It said Seinfeld also noted that Lapine has three names and that "if you read history, many of the three-name people do become assassins."

Then Seinfeld added, "Mark David Chapman. And you know, James Earl Ray. So that's my concern," the lawsuit recalled.

Lennon was shot and killed outside his Manhattan apartment by Chapman, a deranged fan, on Dec. 8, 1980. King was assassinated by Ray on April 4, 1968, on the balcony of a hotel in Memphis, Tenn.

The lawsuit said a reasonable person watching Seinfeld on Letterman's show would conclude that he had described Lapine as mentally ill with "potentially violent or, at a minimum, hostile, tendencies, proclivities and activities."

It argued that Lapine was not a public figure, does not suffer mental infirmity, is not a celebrity stalker, is not violent or dangerous, and does not engage in extortion or lies.

Do tell, Mr. Mellish. This is the Anti-Jessie thread, and is required.

You're saying that a spinish pita pizza is a rip-off of a spinach taco pizza?

I didn't mean to imply I had previously-unturned dirt.

That said, it's always entertaining to hear an 80-something year old man finding multiple creative ways to link the words F***, B****, and C***.

And boy, did he ever.

Jessica also had a recipe to create what she christened as a 'Bagel'. Never heard of this thing called a 'Bagel' before Jessie enlightened me with her original talents.

So your author invented both the bagel and spinach?

According to my calculations, Popeye invented Spinach and Jessica S.N. Seinfeld did indeed invent the bagel (patent pending).

I really think that the other woman suing sounds like a little bit of a drama queen. Since when are vegetable purees a new idea? People have been hiding veggies in other foods for years, I am not sure where she thinks that is a copyright issue.

From what I understand, you can't copyright a recipe. You can only copyright how you word the instructions. So the actual list of ingredients is not protected.

I have seen numerous handwritten recipes from grandparents that hide vegetables in kids' food. It's not a new idea. It actually started in 1879 when the son of Thomas Alva Edison spat out his broccoli and refused to take another bite. Furious, Edison picked up the spat broccoli and shoved it into his son's dessert cake as punishment. When his son went ahead and ate the dessert, a bulb of sorts appeared above Edison's head. But now we are getting into another story altogether...

You can copyright a specific arrangement of information, even if the underlying information is not protectable

Ultimately, worst case scenario, the lawsuit wont put too much of a dent in jerry's pocketbook anyway.

But, Jessica's impeccable reputation as a gold digging ho shall remain.

Her great-grandfather, Ned Nederlander, is my favorite silent movie star.

I was wondering why the name sounded extremely familiar.
