Playing Judge Judy Reveals Why She Doesn't Like the Idea of Online Dating

Judge Judy Sheindlin may keep a tough demeanor in the courtroom, but she revealed a softer side during a sitdown with ET special correspondent Melissa Rivers.

The 72-year-old daytime TV star and her husband Jerry Sheindlin, 81, have been married for 38 years. During their time together, they've raised three children and become grandparents to 13. The love of this happy couple sprouted from a fortuitous meeting in a bar, and while some might look down on bars as a place to meet the love of your life, Judge Judy says that there are worse options for her grandchildren.

"I would rather they meet in a bar than on the Internet," Judge Judy said with a laugh.

She's reluctantly becoming more tech savvy, as she now has a Facebook page and a Twitter account.

"I'm putting a toe in for the first time," Judge Judy said. "It's a way of connecting. I'm not sure whether it's going to be the downfall of Rome -- social media. There are too many secrets."
