So, does anyone know where Bourret’s Jewishness comes from?

She’s probably the most baffling case of stated Jewishness I’ve seen.

Don’t you hate it when a source says a celebrity has Jewish ancestry and doesn’t say from which side of the family?! Anyway I am guessing “Comi” if it hasn’t been changed over time is of Italian origin.

Bourret seems to be saying her Jewish heritage is from her mother and/or maternal grandmother, yet from what I can see, they aren’t of Jewish descent. It’s baffling to me.

Uh oh. Hope its not another Alessandra Torresani situation.

“Comi” is an Italian surname

I’ve put up her mother’s ancestry, and they weren’t ethnically Jewish. It’s possible someone converted to Judaism at some point. I just don’t know.

Is Slovenian confirmed? Krall can be Czech too
