Lifting Families Out of Poverty, One Crib at a Time
The Huffington Post - 12 months
There are too many stories of need in this country. And nearly all of them start the same way -- with the unspeakable stress endured by families in poverty. They tell of parents who reuse disposable diapers; children who are sent home from school for hygiene issues because shampoo and soap are luxury items for a poor family; parents who can't afford a crib so they put their newborn babies to sleep in a dresser drawer, a hamper, or in a cardboard box. These are the everyday, constant challenges for families in poverty. These are the indignities our organization, Baby Buggy, strives to overcome. Baby Buggy was founded by Jessica Seinfeld 15 years ago with a focus on serving mothers of small children. Today our work has expanded across the country to serve mothers and fathers of children up to age 14. The statistics are hard to hear: one in four U.S. children live in poverty. So while the road out of poverty can be challenging, it just makes our work and mission that much more important. ...

Former Alexander McQueen Store Employee Called 'Burrito Face' Files Discrimination Lawsuit
Huffington Post - about 3 years
"Burrito face," "Goya princess" and "taco smoke” are just a few of the offensive and racist names that a former Alexander McQueen store employee is claiming her boss called her while on the job. According to the New York Post, Moselle Blanco, a 43-year-old Hispanic woman and former saleswoman from the West 14th Street boutique in NYC's trendy Meatpacking District, is now slapping the high-end British fashion house with a racial discrimination lawsuit. The Manhattan civil suit, which was filed last Wednesday, contests that Blanco's boss, Max Cantey, not only called her names but also subjected her “to a persistent barrage of offensive comments based on her race and national origin.” In one instance, Blanco recalled Cantey telling her that “she had greasy hands like a Mexican and that he did not want any product to ‘get messy.’” She also said she was falsely accused of stealing and using cocaine at work. Calls to Cantey at the Alexander McQueen store were not immediately return ...

<i>Diana</i> the Movie -- Not As Awful As You've Heard, But It Could Have Been Better -- (Memo to All Actors -- Try To Avoid Portraying Fabled Icons!)
Huffington Post - about 3 years
"You know, Hillary Clinton gives of herself. Princess Diana gives of herself. But they are not saints," said actor Edward James Olmos. Well, during no point in Hillary Clinton's lifetime has she ever been considered a saint. Princess Diana, however, even before her much-publicized charity endeavors, was considered some sort of other-worldly saint-like celebrity phenomenon. She was famous for being famous on the grandest scale. (So powerful was her impact before she married Prince Charles many people referred to her as "Lady Di" forever.) She initially tapped into the beautiful fairy-tale of a "commoner" being lifted to royalty by a (reasonably) attractive prince. Although Diana wasn't really a"commoner" at all. Just very young, and totally unsuited for The Life. Later, as her unhappiness and neurosis became known--often through her own clever self-promotion -- she was the first truly modern star of the obsessively searching "me" generation. Theatrically staged suicide attempts ...

Inside the Gossip Industrial Complex
Huffington Post - about 3 years
George Rush and Joanna Molloy's "SCANDAL: A Manual, The Inside Story of America's Infamous Gossip Columnists" (Skyhorse/Norton) is the most fun read I've had all year -- possibly in several years. It is a delicious look behind the curtain of New York's gossip media industrial complex, the players and the played, and how rival columns and columnists at the Daily News and The New York Post do battle and have been forced to evolve in an Internet/ Matt Drudge/ Fox News/ and TMZ disrupted world. A few disclaimers: Rush and I became friends while attending Columbia's Graduate School of Journalism, and having birthdays a few days apart have shared many a celebration including our respective birthdays, our weddings to women better than we deserved, and shared life events related to our children about whom we are gobsmacked and who, on occasion, we have forced to visit each other and go on rides at Magic Mountain. I have appeared in Page Six items and in Rush and Molloy and have on more th ...

George Clooney Photobombs Jerry Seinfeld And Steven Spielberg
Huffington Post - about 3 years
George Clooney may be an A-list actor, but that doesn't mean he can't enjoy a good prank. The "Gravity" star was evidently feeling silly at the USC Shoah Foundation gala at New York's American Museum of Natural History Thursday, and snuck up behind Steven Spielberg, Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica Seinfeld while the trio unknowingly posed for a picture. Despite the lighthearted moment, Clooney was not being honored for his sense of humor, but for his humanitarian work. Spielberg presented him with an Ambassador for Humanity Award, calling him "an unparalleled example of action over apathy." For more celebrity photobombs, browse the gallery below.

LOOK: We Have To Hope This Craiglist Ad Is A Joke
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Having a picky eater is one of parenthood's greatest challenges. It may be completely normal for kids to develop food neophobia (yes, there is a scientific term for pickiness), but the lengths moms and dads go to just get a child to eat are vast. Some change the names of unfamiliar cuisines. Others turn the kitchen table into dinner theater. Thanks to Jessica Seinfeld, hiding fruits and veggies in kids' favorite dishes is standard practice. But one parent's approach is, shall we say, unconventional. In an anonymous Craigslist ad, Mom or Dad is recruiting for an unpaid "talent gig" for a "really really skinny person." The reason seems to be that the mere presence of said skinny person will make children feel badly about throwing away their food. LOOK: Last resort? Maybe. Still, we're certain there are other ways to teach children to finish their supper. Forget, for the moment, that researchers say parents shouldn't even be urging kids to "clean their plates" anym ...

Regina Weinreich: Jake Gyllenhaal's Good Cop in 'End of Watch'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The F-word flies by fast, furious and often from cops and criminals in Jake Gyllenhaal's new movie End of Watch, now on its way to the Toronto Film Festival. At a special preview screening at Bryan Bantry's Goose Creek on Sunday night, the dreamy-eyed star prepared the audience for extreme violence, and for another F-word: friendship. With more edge than the typical police procedural, the film left viewers -- including hosts Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ingrid Sischy and Sandra Brant, and many guests: Bruce Weber, Bob Balaban, Chris Martin, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Katie Lee, and Beth Ostrosky Stern -- getting over the movie's devastating end with champagne and dessert. Everything is up close and personal, from scenes of what drug cartels do with their stash and those who cross them, to frantic users who want to silence their kids, to the families of these good cops both in the LAPD, and at home, to the front seat of the squad car where Gyllenhaal's Brian ...

Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Jessica Seinfeld
1971
Born on September 12, 1971.
1998
In June 1998, she married Eric Nederlander, a theatrical producer and the son of theater owner Robert Nederlander.
Several months before the wedding, she met Jerry Seinfeld at a Reebok Sports Club.
After returning from an Italian honeymoon with Nederlander, she took up with Seinfeld; Nederlander filed for divorce in October 1998, only four months after marrying. Sklar and Seinfeld became engaged in November 1999, and were married on December 25, 1999. Comedian George Wallace was the best man at the wedding. After much criticism from Nederlander on Jessica's divorce and subsequent marriage, the Seinfelds gave a personal account of their relationship to Vogue Magazine in 2004.
Jessica is quoted as saying, "I met Jerry at the end of what was the most difficult period of my life. I had just made a painful decision to dissolve a five-year relationship that began when I was 21 and culminated in a brief marriage. Jerry was neither the cause nor the effect of the breakup, but his friendship gave me strength and resilience at a time of desperate need, and it has formed the basis for my happiness in the years that have followed." Jerry Seinfeld has said, "If it wasn’t for Jess and the kids, I’d really blow my brains out. Jessica saved my life. She gave me something to care about." The Seinfelds have three children. Daughter Sascha was born on November 7, 2000, in New York City, son Julian Kal on March 1, 2003, in New York City, and Shepherd Kellen was born on August 22, 2005, at NewYork–Presbyterian Hospital.
2001
Seinfeld founded Baby Buggy in 2001 following the birth of her first child.
She started with a donation drive, whereby she asked people for their used baby supplies after realizing that her first child's products that were no longer of use could still be used by others. According to Seinfeld, “shortly after the birth of my daughter, Sascha, having slowly accumulated closets full of used—but very usable—baby clothing and equipment she no longer needed, I had a moral dilemma; as the daughter of a social worker, throwing out perfectly good baby gear was unthinkable; and yet there was no easy way to get it to a family who could use it. Thus, Baby Buggy was born.” With a motto of “Love. Recycled,” Baby Buggy's goal is to help families in need access the essentials to ensure their safety and well-being. By providing concrete resources to families through a network of social service professionals, Baby Buggy seeks to alleviate the stress of living in poverty and help in the prevention of crisis.
2008
As of 2008, 88 cents of every dollar received by Baby Buggy went straight to programs.
2010
In July 2010, Baby Buggy launched a layette collection with Target Corporation, with 10% of sales going to help families in need.
The layette line was designed by illustrator and children’s book author Maira Kalman. In October 2007, Jessica released her first cookbook, Deceptively Delicious, Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food, which contains strategies and recipes for making healthy food appealing to young children. The book features traditional recipes, such as mac and cheese and spaghetti and meatballs, that get a nutritional boost from vegetable purees. Deceptively Delicious was featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, became a #1 New York Times bestseller, remaining on the list for five months after its release. The book also reached #1 on Amazon.com and #2 on the USA Today bestseller list. Expert Joy Bauer added nutritional advice to the recipes, while Dr. Roxana Mehran and Dr. Mehmet Oz penned the foreword. A portion of the royalties from Deceptively Delicious were donated to Baby Buggy.
In October 2010, Jessica released her second cookbook, Double Delicious!
Good, Simple Food for Busy, Complicated Lives, which shared more healthy twists on traditional recipes, and incorporated vegetable purees, whole grains, and alternatives to processed sugars and flours. Like her first book, Double Delicious! was featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
2013
As of May 2013, Baby Buggy has donated over six million items to New York families since the organization was established.
In 2013, Baby Buggy received its fourth Four Star rating from Charity Navigator.
The charity is also an Accredited Charity of the Better Business Bureau.
In 2013 she released her third cookbook, The Can't Cook Book, billed as "100 recipes for the absolutely terrified!"
In October 2010, Jessica launched a website for beginner cooks called "Do it Delicious." The website teaches at-home viewers how to prepare particular dishes or meals step-by-step, as well as a kitchen guide, store, blog, and community forum where users can submit tips and ask how-to questions.
