The Snapple Lady looks for bigger roles

Wendy Kaufman hopes to expand her commercial role into sitcoms

Posted on

Not since Clara Peller wondered, “Where’s the beef?” has there been a TV pitchwoman as popular as Wendy Kaufman — a.k.a. the Snapple lady. But after conquering Madison Avenue, the 35-year-old Long Island, N.Y., native, who does work for the New York-based beverage company (in the marketing department), has now set her sights on sitcoms, namely Seinfeld. “I would love to get on the show and have George write me a letter, but I don’t know if they’ll do that,” says Kaufman. Luckily, two Seinfeld staff members were on hand at a recent premiere of new Snapple spots and didn’t rule out the idea. “Wendy didn’t tell us about (wanting to be on Seinfeld) but we’ll see what we can do,” says one staffer, who hints that her presence is already felt in the show’s studio. “We drink peach iced tea (on the set) — but the mango might just beat it.”
