“Seinfeld”

WE TOLD YA SO: SEINFELD MIGHT COME BACK!

 

None other than Jerry Seinfeld himself all but confirmed our exclusive scoop on 10/5  that we haven’t seen the last of his popular 90’s sitcom, Seinfeld. During a standup routine in Boston last Saturday Jerry hinted to the crowd that something was happening with the show but that it was a secret. (See attached link). We’ve had our fair share of Told Ya So’s lately, but as far as Hollywood scoops go, this one really takes the cake – since NO ONE ever expected a reunion!

JERRY SEINFELD SAID IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN

Jerry Seinfeld’s 2020 Netflix comedy special was one of the streamer’s highest rated programs, and now Jerry might TOP those numbers with what they all said would never happen- a Seinfeld reunion! My source told me that Jerry and his former costars -including Julia Louis Dreyfus- are in top secret talks to revisit their popular sitcom, 25 years after its series finale. The details are far from worked out, but Jerry and his gang could each pocket millions, depending on the format. Netflix is HOPING for a 10 episode revival, but it could easily wind up being a two hour reunion movie. The source says it all comes down to money, but a deal is certainly looking more and more like a strong possibility.

JULIA LOUIS- DREYFUS: MY TWO SONS

Julia Louis-Dreyfus seems to have such a close and non-problematic family considering her success. Julia met her husband, actor/writer Brad Hall, when they were both studying at Northwestern, and they were both hired at Saturday Night Live at the same time. They married in 1987 and had two sons – meanwhile Julia started piling up Emmys for Seinfeld and Veep. Both Charlie, 22, on the left, and Henry, 27, right, graduated from college. Her sweet sons surprised Julia with a video they made to Michael Jackson’s Beat It! when she finished her last day of chemo for breast cancer. Henry is pursuing a career in music, and since he had a cameo on VEEP, Charlie is interested in acting.

JULIA LOUIE DREYFUSS: HER FATHER HAPPENS TO BE A BILLIONAIRE!

julia-louis-dreyfusstonecut

This week our esteemed colleague, Montecito Journal gossip columnist Richard Mineards, reminded us of just how wealthy Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, 53, really IS. Julia, who lives in Montecito with her husband Brad Hall and two sons, made a HUGE name for herself starring as the lovable crackpot Elaine on Seinfeld for nine seasons. (Her vintage frocks and 40’s jackets were a big fashion influence in those years.) At that point she could have retired. but she went on to score another hit with HBO’s VEEP. Financially, she is a very successful actress, and it runs in her family. Julia’s businessman father William Louis-Dreyfuss admits Julia was “always funny “ but he was surprised by her success. William is estimated to be worth 3.4 BILLION dollars, so the apple didn’t fall far from the tree, did it?

MICHAEL RICHARDS GETS ANOTHER CHANCE…

#michaelrichards #janetcharlton

We’re starting to think that Kirstie Alley’s new TV Land series “Giant Baby” is shaping up to be a potential winner. Kirstie plays a Broadway star named Madison Banks, whose long lost son appears in her life after his adopted mother dies, and changes everything. Rhea Perlman plays Madison’s wise-cracking assistant/best friend, and Michael Richards has just been cast to play her limo driver. Richards behavior has long been problematic – we witnessed an incident in a restaurant where he was quite boorish to a fan. But the Seinfeld star IS undeniably funny, and we look forward to seeing this group work together.

“SEINFELD” CREATORS JERRY SEINFELD AND LARRY DAVID ARE SHARING BILLIONS -THEIR COSTARS GET NADA

We were staggered to learn that the TV series “Seinfeld” has earned an amazing $2.7 BILLION DOLLARS since it went OFF the air 12 years ago. According to the NY Post it is the most profitable half hour in TV history. 180 episodes of Seinfeld were made during it’s 9 year run – and that adds up to each show earning 14 million so far. This means that Jerry Seinfeld and his co-creator Larry David have taken in hundreds of millions each for RERUNS of the show. Unfortunately, costars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, and Michael Richards get NOTHING from syndication. It doesn’t seem fair. The only other series likely to top Seinfeld’s earnings someday is “The Simpsons.”
