For months now, Seinfeld and Lonstein have quietly gone about the business of getting to know one another.At George Washington University in Washington, where Lonstein, now 18, enrolled in September, the couple walk arm in arm across campus when Seinfeld pops in for an occasional visit.“Good luck to her,” quoted Sklar’s ex-husband as “sniffing” upon hearing the news of her engagement to Seinfeld.)Things have more or less gone smoothly for both Seinfeld and Sklar since then.
In one, Seinfeld and Lonstein—who looks very much like a high school student—appear swarmed by photographers, with Seinfeld wearing a face of quiet but distinct terror.Within weeks after their first date, friends and neighbors grew accustomed to the sight of the Seinfeld limousine idling outside the Upper East Side luxury apartment building where Lonstein lives with her 15-year-old brother, David, and her parents, Zachary, a wealthy computer-store owner, and Betty, a home-maker.“It’s like your biggest accomplishment is something you didn’t do yourself.” She wasn’t being rude; I’m not beautiful in the traditional sense.I have pock-marked skin, hooded eyes, and a bulbous nose.“You go out with one girl and the other sees you with her in the paper. Seinfeld also seemed to have the support of his colleagues.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, in “No, it didn’t make me cringe,” she says. Anyway, they’re not dating anymore, if that gives other people any happiness.”Regardless of public opinion, the couple survived their first year together, and during the summer after her freshman year of college, Lonstein transferred from GW to UCLA to be closer to Seinfeld.
Lonstein graduated from UCLA and wanted to return to New York, so she did, leaving Jerry in Los Angeles.
In October of 1998, Seinfeld met Jessica Sklar, the woman who would become his wife, at a gym near his apartment in New York.
“So,” Stern said, feigning moral indignation, “you sit in Central Park and have a candy bar on a string and pull it when the girls come?
”Amazingly, Seinfeld, master of his comedy domain, was flustered.
The two dated for four years before his workaholic ways reportedly led to a breakup.“It’s also clear he still hasn’t found real happiness and remains somewhat depressed.
