After shelling out $9 million, Judge Judy is “looking forward to falling in love.”

The TV personality, who’s net worth is an estimated $400 million, bought her 9,700-square-foot Newport mansion from the estate of late Campbell Soup heiress Dorrance Hamilton, who died last year, as reported by Mansion Global. Hamilton nicknamed the property “Bird House” for her love of winged creatures.

The home, which is the most expensive property sold so far this year in the state, has an elevator, panoramic views of cliffs and the Atlantic coastline, as well as heated floors.
