Feisty TV staple Judge Judy, who always makes sure to get her point across, believes that prospective parents should be required to have a license before having children!
Judge Judy Sheindlin appeared recently on the ABC gab fest The View and was asked her opinion of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville's revelation that seeing singing star LeAnn Rimes being close with her children made her "violently angry". (Rimes is now married to Glanville's ex-husband, actor Eddie Cibrian.)
Judge Judy explained to the View ladies (and Dancing with the Stars reject Jaleel White) that parents must possess a level of maturity in the event of a break-up for the sake of the children, who are normally the ones who suffer the worst when relationships fail. "You have to love the child more than you hate each other, " she advised.
"Only mature people should have children," the irascible judge states. "If I had to give a license to people, it would be a license to have children only when they are financially and emotionally and physically ready to have children".
Her comments were met with approval from both the panel and from the applauding crowd:
