Tonight's new episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm," which is stronger than the season's premiere and sure to be an instant classic, prominently features Raleigh native and Emmy award-winning actress, Sharon Lawrence.
In the episode, Lawrence plays a cancer specialist who believes personal relationships can contribute to a patient's recovery, and who advises her patients to "walk out on" toxic partnerships.
As we know, the show's star, Larry David, wants out of his relationship with Loretta (Vivica A. Fox), who has cancer. Larry may not know what it's like to have cancer, but he knows what it's like to be with someone who has cancer, and Larry isn't built for that kind of sacrifice.
So as he's making Loretta's fresh-squeezed carrot juice and contemplating missing his golf game to drive her to a hair appointment, he hears Dr. Trundle (Lawrence) describe to Dr. Phil the type of toxic personality she advises her cancer patients to avoid:
"Someone who is impatient, someone who is obnoxious, someone who is petty and argumentative, and obsesses over meaningless details at the expense of a harmonious relationship."
Sound like anyone we know?
