Celebrity Judge Judith Sheindlin celebrated her 70th
birthday cruising the seas of The Exumas.
Television viewers across the United States heard
Judge Judy’s endorsement of the Exuma vacation experience. She was
interviewed by Katie Couric on her ABC talk show, Katie. In her interview, which was seen by an estimated audience
of more than 5 million, Judge Judy spoke about visiting the Exumas with
“We partied in The Bahamas and had a great time,”
Judge Judy told the television audience that her cruising
experience included feeding Exuma’s famous swimming pigs.
“That is something that is very unique,” she said.
“Most people haven’t done it. You pull up to an island on this little
dinghy and the pigs hear the boat and they are so initiated to the fact
that once the boat comes, they get fed. So they come out through the
greenery and get into the water and open up their mouths.”
Earlier this year, TV Guide reported that Judge Judy is the highest paid television
star in the United States due to her high-energy, small claims court
show. However, Judge Judy concentrated on the energy of the Exuma’s
during her interview.
“Everything new is an adventure,” she said of
the swimming pigs experience. “So this was an adventure. It was fun.”
The Judge Judy show is in its 17th season and is television’s
number one daytime show.
