Did 'Seinfeld' help name baby Beckham?

In addition to being born in the seventh month of the year, at 7:55 a.m., on the seventh day of the week (depending on who you ask) and weighing 7 pounds, Harper Seven’s footballer dad donned the No. 7 jersey when he played for Manchester United.

The Beckham’s ties to the number aside, some CNN.com commenters suggested Victoria and David took a cue from "Seinfeld’s" George Costanza when naming their first daughter.

“Seven - wasn't that George Costanza's choice for a baby’s name? Victoria must be a ‘Seinfeld’ fan!” commenter Mathjan suggested.

'Curb' is back (and everyone's divorced)!

[Editor's Note: Larry David, Susie Essman & Jeff Garlin from "Curb Your Enthusiasm" returned to HBO on Sunday, but first they dropped by “The Joy Behar Show.” Larry discusses a possible return to stand-up as well as a look back at when he once had hair. See the full interview on “The Joy Behar Show” at 10 p.m. ET only on HLN.]

Anyone thinking that Larry and Cheryl David had finally made up at the end of last season was sadly mistaken, as we saw in the opening moments of Tuesday night's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" premiere.

Cheryl turned out to be the one who didn't "respect wood" when it came to leaving glasses on furniture, and when Larry told her to call Julia Louis-Dreyfus to apologize for her coaster-less ways, that was the last straw.

One year later, they were well into divorce proceedings, but Larry was confident with his lawyer (Paul F. Tompkins, the latest in a long line of great actors in bit roles on this show). Little did he know that he wasn't Jewish, as believed, which ended up getting him replaced with another attorney who helped settle a restaurant dispute.

Ten questions with 'Glee's' Coach Beiste

Although Dot-Marie Jones has been acting for nearly 20 years, it wasn't until "Glee" that she found a part she said she'd gladly play for the rest of her life.

Jones - better known as Coach Beiste - had previously worked with "Glee" creators and writers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk on "Nip/Tuck" and an unaired pilot called "Pretty/Handsome." After falling in love with the show's first season, she begged them to write her a part for season 2.

Although Jones isn't sure if Coach Beiste will be back for season 3, she did spill details on why she loves the character, what she's been up to this summer - which includes being a guest judge on "RuPaul's Drag U," airing tonight at 9 p.m. ET on Logo - and who she'd like to arm wrestle on the show.

Lots of puppy love on 'Ice Loves Coco'

Lots of puppy love on 'Ice Loves Coco'

Finally, a true star got his time to shine on Sunday's episode of "Ice Loves Coco." Ice-T and Coco's dog Spartacus is a bonafide star in Hollywood, complete with an agent named Cat.

Here's the thing to know about Spartacus: Coco is his stage mom and Ice-T is the reluctant dad. Coco not only wants to be a star with her own clothing line (more on that later) but she also apparently wants to make even her dog famous. As a result, Spartacus was booked for a doggie calendar shoot. I can't wait for her to be a real mother; I can just see her now in a future episode of "Toddlers & Tiaras."

So as the day for the calendar shoot draws near, Coco promises the dog agent that Spartacus has been trained for shoots and well...he hasn't. And so we begin operation "train my dog quickly so my doggie agent doesn't know I lied."

Holy transformation, Jonah Hill!

We're used to seeing Jonah Hill's glasses and curls, but the 27-year-old actor showed up at the BAFTA's Brits to Watch event on Saturday sans frames, with a shorter 'do and a trimmer look.

The actor has been hustling on the movie front, taking on "21 Jump Street" with Channing Tatum, in which they play cops who go undercover at a high school.

The movie, which includes an appearance from original "21 Jump Street" cast member Johnny Depp, just wrapped in early July and arrives in theaters next March.

Sudeikis steps up for 'Eastbound & Down' - who should join him?

Kenny Powers isn’t the best at keeping friends, but he’ll find a new one in Jason Sudeikis.

The "Saturday Night Live" cast member and star of “Horrible Bosses" is set to play a recurring role on "Eastbound & Down’s" third season, Variety reports. Sudeikis will play Shane, a friend of ex-Major League Baseball player Powers (played by Danny McBride). According to TV Guide, early casting reports peg Shane as a “gullible and enthusiastic baseball player.”

Somehow we don’t think this will go over well with Powers' most loyal friend, Stevie Jankowski (Steve Little), but we’ll just have to see how it all plays out.
