Judge Judith Sheindlin has been the queen of court television for as long as many of us can remember.
Her matter-of-fact, no-nonsense rulings had us all hooked from the moment she uttered the words "um is not an answer."
Before she was the star of a hit reality court TV show, she was working as a supervising judge in a New York family court. Now, she's the second highest paid TV reality/news/host with an annual salary of $47 million!
How does she do it?
