  • 10 shows that would have had awesome Thanksgivukkah episodes

    Thanksgivukkah isn’t happening for another couple of weeks, but already it has bestowed upon us many gifts, including a great recipe for roasted Brussels sprouts with pastrami and pickled red onion, a rapping turkey, and a “Colbert Report” bit so funny the host himself lost it. There’s something else on our wish list for this… More ▸

  • Cynthia Nixon hosts party for Jewish organization T’ruah

    Cynthia Nixon may not be Jewish, but, the “Sex and the City” star tells 6nobacon, her kids are, and she’s very connected to the Jewish community. “My daughter was bat mitzvahed at Bnai Jeshrun on the Upper West Side, and my 10-year-old son will eventually be bar mitzvahed at the LGBT synagogue we go to now,”… More ▸

  • Sarah Jessica Parker can no longer wear heels

    The Carrie Bradshaws within us all are mourning across the nation. Sarah Jessica Parker’s doctor told her she has permanent foot damage, and can no longer wear heels. “I went to a foot doctor and he said, ‘Your foot does things it shouldn’t be able to do. That bone there… You’ve created that bone. It… More ▸

  • 10 TV Jewish couples we love

    There aren’t that many Jewish couples out there. On television, that is.
    Sure, there are plenty of mixed marriages, as there are in real life, but the small screen doesn’t usually feature a couple where both members are Jews.
    But we were able to come up with 10 of our favorites in honor of Valentine’s Day after racking our pop culture-loving brains (and searching the internet).
    Here they are:
    1. The “retired and moved to Boca” couple – Helen and Mordy Seinfeld (“Seinfeld”)

    They love each other but fight all time. They wonder why you never call them (or Uncle Leo) and invite themselves over. Mordy (Barney Martin) always complains and yells about everything he doesn’t like, and Helen (Liz Sharidan) yells back at him but always has his back. The Seinfelds are the thick-skinned, proud and caring couple who somehow get along in a faraway land called Florida. More ▸

  • Sandra Bernhard was almost Miranda Hobbs!

    Sandra Bernhard, best known for playing one of the first lesbian characters on cable television with her role on “Roseanne,” could have taken her acting chops to a very different sort of show. In a recent interview with Howard Stern, the queen of comedy told the radio host that she was thiiiiiiiiis close to playing… More ▸

  • Dianna Agron might play little Carrie Bradshaw

    After the HBO series “Sex and the City” went off the air, hormonal twenty-somethings everywhere wept over cosmos and tripped over Manolos, wondering how life could go on without Carrie Bradshaw. Thankfully, the shoe-loving, man-eating writer is back … in her pre-pubescent form, at least. The CW network has decided to turn Candace Bushnell’s “The… More ▸

  • 2 Broke Girls does Brooklyn…20 years ago

    The new CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls premiered last night. It stars Kat Dennings, one of my favorite Jewish actresses and has a plot line fueled by Bernie Madoff. Unfortunately the show is not the best vehicle for her prodigious talents. Worse still, it traffics in Brooklyn cliches that would’ve felt dated 10 years ago…. More ▸

  • JLove looking for love in Jewtopia

    Jewtopia, the hit off-Broadway comedy that originated in Los Angeles, is now headed to the big screen with one major name attached — Jennifer Love Hewitt. Love Hewitt will be playing a Jewess and the object of attraction for Christian O’Connell (played by Ivan Sergei), a Gentile searching for a woman who will free him… More ▸
