Judge Judy’s granddaughter, Sarah Rose Levy, not only calls the legendary lawyer family, she says she’s her “very best friend.”
Levy, 24, penned a heartfelt letter to her 79-year-old grandmother (real name: Judy Sheindlin), which has been published in the December issue of Good Housekeeping.
“Throughout my life, your support and guidance have made me feel confident and secure in a way that’s allowed me to take risks and enjoy life in a way very few have the chance to experience,” Levy cooed.
Levy’s letter comes after she scored a plum role on her grandmother’s new TV series, “Judy Justice.”
The program is produced by Amazon Studios and premiered earlier this month, with Levy serving as Sheindlin’s new law clerk.
“She’s smart, sassy, and opinionated. Who knows where she gets those traits?” Sheindlin quipped, introducing her granddaughter.
Given that Levy shares her grandmother’s personality traits, she could be soon be stepping into Sheindlin’s shoes full time.
The blonde beauty boasts a showbiz background, having previously interned at “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” and holds a communications degree from the University of Southern California.
Levy is now seeking to become a legal eagle just like her beloved “nana,” completing a Juris Doctor at New York Law School.
The youngster — who is one of Sheindlin’s 13 grandchildren — says it was her grandmother who inspired her to study law.
“You saw qualities in me that I eventually discovered but might not have without your nurturing and constant direction,” she wrote.
“You taught me that the way to build confidence is to be independent and do work in your life that is meaningful and impactful.”
Sheindlin previously told The Post about the moment she knew Levy would be “perfect” for her new show.
“Her aunt was visiting her and I said, ‘Let your aunt put you on tape and let her ask you questions. Sit in an official-looking chair and put on a black suit, this is not a bathing suit [audition],’” Sheindlin said.
“Then we decided [that] I would ask her questions, just so that the people on the other end could see that she is articulate, good-looking, youthful … what you want from a clerk on a [court] program. She was never frightened of the camera and she’s gotten more comfortable. She even disagreed with a decision I made and I said, ‘I can see your side of the equation,’ which is a big leap for me. She’s a third-generation lawyer in our family.”
“Judy Justice” comes following the conclusion of Sheindlin’s daytime TV smash, “Judge Judy,” which ran for 25 years.
Fans were left saddened that Sheindlin’s beloved bailiff Petri Hawkins-Byrd — who had served on “Judge Judy” since its premiere back in 1996 — was not brought on board for the new series.
