Jessica Seinfeld is having just as much fun as her husband, what with his show about nothing and his riding in cars with funny people to get coffee. The author and philanthropist is reportedly working on two new books that she will release sometime next year.
Releasing new books has been a tricky prospect for Jessica Seinfeld. She already has three cookbooks out, and one of those caused her some difficulty when she got sued over it.
Apparently another author felt that Jessica Seinfeld’s book Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food in 2008 was much too much like her own. Both books were about how to puree vegetables and hide them in tasty treats for your kids. Jessica Seinfeld got sued by Missy Chase Lapine for the supposed infraction.
The lawsuit also included charges of defamation against Jerry Seinfeld who poked fun at the lawsuit when he appeared on Letterman and expressed his opinion that the plaintiff was a “wacko” and a “nutjob.”
Eventually, all of the claims in Lapine’s case were thrown out. Jessica Seinfeld has pushed on, publishing two more cookbooks since then. Double Delicious: Good, Simple Food for Busy, Complicated Lives came out in 2012, then The Can’t Cook Book: Recipes for the Absolutely Terrified! hit in 2013.
Now Jessica Seinfeld is poised for two more. The first is another cookbook, which will be released in fall 2016. The other is said to be a collection of humorous essays and observations.
As for her charitable efforts, Jessica Seinfeld is the president and founder of Baby Buggy, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing clothing and equipment to New York’s families in need. To date, Baby Buggy has donated nearly two million essential items to New York families through domestic violence and homeless shelters, parent programs and court child centers.
