Speaking of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'.....

According to the New York Daily News, Larry David's wife in the Trueniverse, Laurie David, will be appearing in the Jan. 11 episode of daytime soap 'The Bold and the Beautiful'.

Laure David founded the Stop Global Warming Virtual March and she will appear as herself to discuss the perils of global warming with Massimo Marone IV and his son Nick Marone.

This causes a problem for Toobworld because - according to 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' - Larry David's wife is Cheryl David. And as played by Cheryl Hines, she doesn't look like Laurie David.

Thanks to the League of Themselves, 'The Bold & The Beautiful' is definitely in the same universe as 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'.

'The Bold & The Beautiful' - Bob Barker approved the use of Forrester fashions on 'The Price Is Right'
'The Nanny' - Bob Barker appeared when Fran Fine talked a child star into quitting show business.
'The Nanny' - Martin Mull appeared as one of the celebrity squares during the same 'Hollywood Squares' tapings as Maxwell Sheffield.
'The Larry Sanders Show' - Martin Mull offered to guest host while Larry was on vacation.
'The Larry Sanders Show' - Hank Kingsley talked his assistant Darlene into appearing in a layout for Playboy Magazine when Hugh Hefner was a guest on the talk show.
'Curb Your Enthusiasm' - Larry David switched smoking jackets while visiting Hugh Hefner at the Playboy Mansion.

There's no way I want to shunt either 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' or 'The Bold & The Beautiful' to some alternate TV dimension to avoid the Zonk!, especially the soap opera - because that would mean I would have to banish 'The Young & The Restless' as well. And my Mom would never forgive me for that!

I suppose it will all depend on what Laurie David has to say on 'B&B' in regards to her husband. She'll probably make matters worse by referring to 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' as a TV show. God knows 'Curb' causes enough problems as it is when it comes to Zonk!s.

But right now I'm leaning toward a really off-the-wall scenario. In the TV Universe, Laurie David is a woman who fantasizes that Larry David is her husband in much the same way as Condoleeza Rice once referred to George W. Bush as "my husb-#" before quickly correcting herself and talking about him as 'the President'.

Why someone would fantasize about Larry David as spousal material, I don't know. It must be the money from 'Seinfeld'........

But like I said, this will be a wait and see situation. She might not mention Larry at all.
