“Hot Bench’s” Judge Patricia DiMango is chatting with Rach about her show, created by the one and only Judge Judy! “What you see is exactly who she is. I mean there’s no pretense about her,” says Judge Patricia. “She’s confident, she’s bright, she’s caring, she’s tough and she’s gentle. She’s amazing.”

Rach asks that with all the recent publicity if she’s starting to be recognized on the streets. “Actually yes!” exclaims Judge Patricia. “I promised myself, the first person that recognized me I was going to take a picture of. So, I was walking in West Hollywood and the woman said to me ‘Are you registered to vote here?’ And I said no, I live in New York part-time. So I said you can’t tell by my accent? And she said ‘And you’re a judge too.’ So I said can I take your picture?”
