Good news for comedy fans: Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David, the team who brought us "Seinfeld," are teaming up for a new mystery project. Seinfeld participated in a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" session, where he admitted that he and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star David are working on something, but would not give any details other than to write "it's big, huge, gigantic."
Another New York Jewish icon, Iris Apfel, known for her bold accessories, spoke with T magazine editor-in-chief Deborah Needleman about fame and her unique style and her 2005 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute exhibit. Apfel, by the way, defines style as "attitude."
Drew Barrymore talks about being a "good shiksa wife" in the February issue of Marie Claire. In fact, her sister in law calls her "Jew Barrymore." She and husband Will Kopelman, who she married in 2012, belong to a synagogue, and she even tried to prepare a Passover Seder for him, but she got the date wrong. That pesky Hebrew calendar, so confusing. Barrymore also says she loves "the Jewish faith…the family values," but decided not to convert because "it takes a lot of work and time."
