In his weekly talk to THR about “Curb Your Enthusiasm“, executive producer Jeff Schaffer aswered THE question about Larry and Bridget’s relationship (yay more Lauren!):
Bridget (Lauren Graham) also left Larry at brunch. Is their relationship over?
Larry and Bridget had a big fight — it was a go-home argument. But you’ll see in the next episode that they are still together. This is not the way they go down. And by the way, Elizabeth Perkins gets an unbelievable amount of respect for how many times she ate so much ketchup. It’s one thing to write and shoot all the ketchup jokes — it’s a completely different thing to be the person eating all of that ketchup take after take. I loved that Larry starts off that first brunch by apologizing for the other episode and saying, “That’s not a true representation of who I am.” When, we all know that’s exactly who he is. And then he’s trying his hardest to be good and when she starts pouring the ketchup, he just goes after it like a dog after a bone and can’t stop digging.

Jeff Schaffer, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” executive producer talked to THR about the latest episode of the show and of course about Lauren’s role :
How did you go about casting Graham — were there others who tried out for the role?
The character, Bridget, is going to be around for a while and we knew it was going to be a pretty big part for the final half of the season. So it was important for us that Larry had someone who he felt super-comfortable with. But it had to work both ways. He had to be comfortable saying anything in front of her, and we also had to make sure that it was someone who would be comfortable saying all of these foul things, too. We didn’t actually audition this part. We just talked about who would be great for this, and Larry thought she would be perfect and she was. He can say anything around her and she rolls with it. She was comfortable saying anything on the planet in front of Larry.
What about Graham did David think would work, and what was it like when they shot their scenes?
Lauren and Larry have an effortless connection. She walked in and it felt like they had been dating for a long time, it was so easy. The very first scene of her story was the first time she was on set, and she had to say the filthiest things on the planet. She was laughing and saying, “Oh, my dad was going to be so happy that I was on Curb.” Larry knew her a little bit socially and just got the great vibe that Lauren gives off. She is an incredibly giving and receptive actress and a great listener, so it’s very easy for him to improv with her.
