Marla and Libby are back this week and this time they’re making major headlines! The Schmuckgirls are thrilled to announce that they are now under the distribution of the Jewish Journal! They are extremely excited for their new partnership and everything to come but it’s still business as usual.

Libby shares about fun upcoming cruise plans with Jack, Marla decides to keep her dating life more on the down-low and both girls share about fun upcoming events in NYC and LA.

Their guest this week in their final installment of Jewish Matchmaking interviews (for now), is the one and only Aleeza Ben Shalom! Aleeza shares how she got cast as the Jewish Matchmaker and her thoughts before and while filming. She also talks about how she got into matchmaking in the first place and how it has always come naturally to her.

The girls discuss potential problems that arise when matchmaking and how Aleeza deals with it and how matchmaking for TV added another layer of difficulty. She also shares fun and meaningful experiences that audiences didn’t see on Netflix.

The girls end with a game of “Trust Your Doubt or Go Out” and put Aleeza to the test to see what she would consider to be dealbreakers.
