Larry David recently filmed a cameo for 'Hannah Montana' on the Disney Channel. In it, he arrives at a restaurant with his two daughters, but without a reservation. And even though he made a fortune from being the co-creator of 'Seinfeld' as well as the star of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm', Larry can't get anywhere with the maitre d'.

However, when Hannah Montana saunters into the restaurant under similar circumstances, she's seated right away.

As I said, Larry David's not alone in the scene - his two daughters by Laurie David are with him. Daughter Cazzie razzes him by saying, "Face it, Dad, she's bigger than you! Bet Uncle Jerry could get us in!"

O'Bviously that's a reference to Jerry Seinfeld.

Larry David made an appearance as himself in an episode of 'Entourage' and that worked as a League of Themselves link to 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'. But this is a glaring Zonk, since the Toobworld version of Larry David doesn't have any children.

It was bad enough in the past when his wife Laurie would make appearances on TV in connection to her work crusading for the environment. I once covered that up with a bit of song-and-dance that she must be some kind of stalker nut in the TV Universe, since Larry David is married to Cheryl as seen on the show.

Trying to splain away two daughters? I'm afraid that there's only one way around this, and it would give a better splainin for Laurie David:

In the TV Universe, Laurie David is his ex-wife. He left her and their two daughters and married Cheryl David. We never see any of them in 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' nor hear mention of them, but that doesn't mean they don't exist. (It's all in the same league as the classic example of Chekov meeting Khan on 'Star Trek'.)

So the appearance on 'Hannah Montana' was one of those times when he had custody of the kids for the weekend and took them out to dinner. And it could be that we never see or hear about them on 'CYE' because they just don't get along with Cheryl......

Just sayin', is all. Wouldn't be the first time we've seen that happen in a second marriage.

What makes this splainin work is the character of Larry David himself. Let's face it, he's not the easiest guy in the world to be with......
