File this one under well played...

The super popular (and top-earning) 72-year-old Judge Judy star and retired real-life judge Judith Sheindlin recently won an award at the Woman of the 21st Century luncheon, adding it to her collection of past honors, which include a Daytime Emmy. But there's one place it's not going.

"I have different ones in different places. The only place I don't have any awards out in the open is in the bedroom," Judith said in an interview posted on The Daily Mail this week. "I sort of feel as if that's one place where nobody should be getting awards."

Her extremely candid husband Gerald "Jerry" Sheindlin jokingly disagrees. The 81-year-old retired New York State Supreme Court justice, who used to star on The People's Court, got a little TMI when asked why there are no awards in the bedroom.

"I have no awards?" he asked. "She just gave me an award last night. I don't understand this. I'm gonna have to talk to her about that."

The two wed in 1977, divorced in 1990 and remarried a year later. They share three children and Judith has two from a previous marriage.

"It's a huge insight," Jerry added jokingly. "I have this statue, which proves it. She has a short memory."

The jury's still out on whether this shocking footage from Judge Judy, which went viral in 2008 and made headlines on outlets such as Fox News, is a pseudo-reenactment of what he was talking about.
