Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

The Women of Jerry, Part 1

The other day I was watching Seinfeld, I the episode with the masseuse was on. Jerry is dating her, he wants a massage, she won't give him on, she hates George so much that George starts to like her - you know the one! Anyway, Jerry's girlfriend is played by Jennifer Coolidge, who has gone on to moderate fame in movies. It's always interesting to watch episodes of the show, because many of Jerry's girlfriends became more famous after they were on. So I decided it's time for another series of posts that I may never finish: Jerry's Women: What Happened to Them? We'll start at the beginning and go forward from there. Join me, won't you?

Of course, none of this would be possible without a Seinfeld episode guide or the trusty Internet Movie Database. The Internet sure is handy!

Our first Seinfeld lady is Pamela Brüll. Who? She was in the pilot episode, which aired on 5 July 1989. She played Laura, who flies into New York and asks to stay with Jerry. He's not sure if she wants to take it up a notch, and then he learns that she's engaged, solving that problem. This is a kind of lame episode, giving no indication of the greatness to come, and Ms. Brüll is part of that problem. She's not unattractive, but she's not terribly glamorous either. She hadn't really done anything noteworthy before she appeared on Seinfeld, and she hasn't done anything since. Her last appearance on the IMDb page is in 1997. Fare thee well, Ms. Brüll!

I wanted to compare Jerry's age to the women he dates, but as I can't find Ms. Brüll's birthdate anywhere, that won't happen now. Look for it our next installment.

So that's Woman of Jerry #1. Rather unimpressive. I can't even find a picture. Let's give her a fame rating of 1 out of 10, simply because she's in the pilot episode of one of the great sitcoms of all time. Other than that, she could be doing dinner theater in Des Moines.

I caught the Seinfeld Real Hollywood Story and they had a whole segment on "Jerry's girlfriends" and how that was a rite of passage for successful young actresses in those days.

You're trying to deter me, aren't you, Woody?!?!?!? It won't work, I tells ya! It is interesting to see all the actresses who went on to bigger and better things, though.

I couldn't find Pamela Brull's DOB or pic, either, in a cursory search, either. You WILL find Tracy Kolis, though...

Look, once you've been involved in "Extreme Ghostbusters" where do you go from there?

I love this idea! Wish I had thought of it. You might have to do more than one woman per entry, though, if you're ever going to finish.

That's true, Tom; we'll see how it goes. He didn't have a girlfriend in every single episode, and I can think of at least one who was his girlfriend longer than one episode.
