Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica Sklar

Seinfeld's Honeymoon Honey

By

Jerry Seinfeld, multi-millionaire comedian and previously one of America's most eligible bachelors, announced his engagement to Jessica Sklar, 28, a public relations executive for Tommy Hilfiger in November 1999.

Their romance began at the Reebok Sports Club, an exclusive health club on New York City's Upper West Side with an inline skating track, a 45-foot tall rock-climbing wall, and exercise classes with names such as "Lower Body Blast."

While the lovebirds were having their own blast, there was one impediment to their bliss:

Not only was Sklar already married...the newlywed had just returned from a three-week honeymoon in Italy with Broadway producer Eric Nederlander.

The couple divorced shortly afterwards.

On Saturday night, November 6, Seinfeld proposed to Sklar at SoHo trendy boite Balthazar, and she accepted the large Tiffany diamond he proferred.

Seinfeld and Sklar were married December 25, 1999. They now have a daughter, Sascha Seinfeld, and two sons, Julian Kal Seinfeld and Shepherd Kellen Seinfeld.

In 2000, Jessica Seinfeld launched Baby Buggy, a charity that provides clothing and gear for the infants and young children of poor, abused, addicted, and homeless women.

In 2007, Jessica Seinfeld released Deceptively Delicious, a cookbook based on feeding children vegetables without their knowing it.

As a thank you to Oprah Winfrey for featuring her on the show to promote the book, Jessica Seinfeld sent Oprah, one of the richest women in the world, 21 pairs of shoes valued at approximately $18,000. Primarily the red-soled Christian Louboutin brand, these shoes sell for around $750 per pair.

In a related item, accusations of plagiarism in the cookbook. Alledgedly more than a dozen of the same recipe ideas in Seinfeld's book appeared in another author's cookbook published earlier in the year.

Once again, Jessica Seinfeld, the former public relations flack, found herself on the wrong end of public opinion, leaving people wondering, "What was this woman thinking?"
