1.  SJP & Kate Hudson Take Great Glee in Glee

A-list stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson have just been announced as the latest big-name stars to appear on Glee. The two women, who both have Jewish ancestry, will appear in the fourth season of the hit show on FOX. Details about each leading lady’s role has yet to be announced.

According to FOX, Parker will appear in at least one episode, while Hudson has been confirmed for a six-episode arc. The fourth season of the show, set to premiere this fall, will follow the graduating class of McKinley High as they pursue their dreams outside of New Directions. Many fans are wondering how this new spin on their favorite show will work, but with SJP and Hudson joining the cast, we think it’s still worth gleeking out over!

 

2.  Mother’s Day Messages

What’s a better Mother’s Day present than a shout-out on Twitter from your famous kid? Our favorite Jewish celebrities were showing their moms some love (publicly) via Twitter yesterday!

Jewish actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler Tweeted, “Happy mother’s day to my amazing, beautiful and courageous mom and Mima. Te quiero mucho!!!”

Ashley Tisdale, who is half Jewish, Tweeted, “Happy Mother’s day!!! My mom is pretty amazing, I’m very lucky”

And Zach Braff kept his Mother’s Day message humorous by Tweeting, “This mother’s day, remember JD’s infamous words, ‘My mom had a uterus… I lived in it.’”

 

3.  Remembering Maurice Sendak

Maurice Sendak died last Tuesday at a hospital in Danbury, Connecticut, four days after suffering a stroke. He was eighty-three years old.

Sendak, who was Jewish, inspired millions and touched childhoods worldwide as an author and illustrator. His most famous works included Where the Wild Things Are and In The Night Kitchen. The New York Times called Sendak’s books “essential ingredients of childhood for the generation born after 1960 or thereabouts, and in turn for their children.”

1.    Kate Hudson Takes To Modeling

Kate Hudson was recently chosen to be the new face of Ann Taylor®. Hudson, who is part Jewish, says, “The new Ann Taylor is not afraid to be sexy and real. The clothes are stylish and comfortable, easy and wearable.”

Ann Taylor sings equal praises for their new spokeswoman. The clothing retailer Tweeted on Tuesday, “We’re proud to announce the new face of Ann Taylor for Spring 2012 – Kate Hudson! #KateisthenewAnn.” In a press release, the company went on to say “She is also a devoted mother, daughter, sister and philanthropist who manages to do it all with a radiant smile, joie de vivre and effortless style.”

2.    She’s A Model Mother

Model mama Josie Maran and boyfriend, Ali Alborzi, announced the former Dancing With The Stars contestant is pregnant with baby number two! The two already have a daughter, 5-year-old Rumi Joon.

Maran, who is of Russian-Jewish descent on her paternal side, Tweeted on Tuesday, “Yes, it’s true! I’m having baby no. 2! So thrilled!”

3.    Is It Over? (Probably Not…)

Bethenny Frankel’s reality show will return in February for what appears to be a highly emotional season. People.com recently posted a first look at what’s coming up on Bethenny Ever After this season. The most dramatic moment comes during a big fight with the Jewish reality star’s husband Jason who is seen walking away and saying, “I’m done!”

Is he really done though? Probably not. Last week Frankel Tweeted a picture of her husband at mealtime saying, “My husband is eating a veggie burger w soy cheese on a sprouted bun w baked fries & veggie chili. This is historic!!” Sounds like everything is still going well in the Frankel household.
