All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.andi-dorfman

-  Incoming bachelorette Andi Dorfman is an assistant district attorney from Atlanta who famously got in a tiff with last season’s Juan Pablo Galavis–ABC’S most obnoxious bachelor ever–accusing him of not knowing anything about her religion or political views. Andi’s dad, named Hy (!), also earned praise from fans when he was uncharmed by the Venezuelan soccer player. Mazal Tov, Andi! (The Forward)

This week, Rosanne Barr, Jewish comedian and mom of five, tweeted back and forth with the aliyah organization @NefeshBNefesh about her plan to move to the holy land, eventually taking the conversation to private messaging. (Times of Israel)

-The sixth season of “Real Housewives of New York” is underway. The mostly Jewish cast of upper-crust mamas–with names like Ramona Singer and Aviva Drescher–is off to a gossipy start with a brand new cast-member: Kristen Taekman. (Vulture)

-See Simon Cowell and girlfriend Lauren Silverman, mom of new baby Eric, partying it up in London this week. If you haven’t been following the saga of Simon’s Jewish baby, read about it here. (Mirror)
