“So,” Stern said, feigning moral indignation, “you sit in Central Park and have a candy bar on a string and pull it when the girls come?”Amazingly, Seinfeld, master of his comedy domain, was flustered.
The former Enochs High School business teacher and his former student became international news in February after Hooker left his wife and three daughters and quit his teaching job to live with Powers.

Howard Stern homed in on the May-August aspect of the relationship when the radio host interviewed his old friend last spring.
Shoshanna Lonstein was a senior at the prestigious Nightingale-Bamford School on the Upper West Side when, on a spring afternoon, she was approached by one of the most well-known comedians in the country.
It appears unclear if Lonstein knew exactly who she was talking to at the time, but after a short conversation, she gave her phone number to the comedian, sparking a relationship that would begin around her high school graduation and end right after her college one.
Lonstein graduated from UCLA and wanted to return to New York, so she did, leaving Jerry in Los Angeles.
In October of 1998, Seinfeld met Jessica Sklar, the woman who would become his wife, at a gym near his apartment in New York.
If Seinfeld didn’t actually propose to Lonstein in 1994, then he might have in May of 1996, when she turned 21.
