NEW YORK, Ny. – Actor and comedian Jerry Seinfeld makes the absolute worst strawberry milkshakes, according to multiple men and women who have come forward to speak out about their harrowing experiences with the aging comic.
“Jerry would invite us over to his flat in Central Park and almost immediately he’d retreat to the kitchen to make milkshakes,” former Seinfeld co-star Julia Louis-Dreyfus revealed in an exclusive interview with The New York Post. “He would say, ‘I want you to try this strawberry milkshake. It’s a new recipe,” Louis-Dreyfus explained. “I swear to you, it was so bad that I had to excuse myself from the room.”
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Seinfeld co-creator Larry David opened up about a similar encounter he and his former wife had with Mr. Seinfeld in the summer of 2006. “Jerry invited Laurie and I over for lunch and the next thing I know he’s in the kitchen making milkshakes,” the visibly shaken Curb Your Enthusiasm star recounted. “He comes out and he hands me this strawberry milkshake and he says, ‘Go on, try it, Larry. You’ll love it.’ It was like drinking chilled garbage. I turned to my wife and said, ‘Honey, we’re never coming here again.’ And we left. I haven’t seen Jerry since.”
A source close to Seinfeld says the iconic stand-up comedian has harbored a penchant for strawberry milkshakes since childhood and even considers himself an authority in all things ice cream. “You can’t be in a room with him for more than five minutes before he brings up his latest strawberry milkshake recipe,” the source told Real News Right Now. “It’s become a real problem for him and it makes people uncomfortable because, you know, they’ve all heard the stories.”
“I think the first question is where does he buy his strawberries? That seems to be the root of the problem,” mused Jeannie Steinman. Founder and CEO of a Los Angeles based public relations firm, Steinman said the sixty-three year-old comedian must find a way to distance himself from the steadily mounting allegations. “He’s going to have to spin this in a way that reflects positively on his character,” advised Steinman before adding, “This is going to be an uphill battle, particularly when you consider the fact that he’s been making bad milkshakes for the better part of his life. He’s conditioned to believe that this kind of behavior is okay.”
