Cazzie David Says She Went 'Easy' On Her Dad In Her Memoir

Cazzie David, daughter of "Seinfeld" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" creator Larry David, published her first memoir in 2020. Titled "No One Asked For This," the collection of essays details numerous aspects of Cazzie's personal life, ranging from her anxiety diagnosis to what it's like to be part of a famous family. Cazzie also discusses her high-profile relationship with Pete Davidson, and how her father Larry helped her through heartbreak when Davidson moved on with Ariana Grande (per Los Angeles Times).

Cazzie is openly vulnerable throughout the book and doesn't shy away from telling the truth, even when she's discussing how annoying she finds her younger sister, Romy. While promoting her collection of essays, Cazzie was asked by Entertainment Weekly about the way she portrays her family in her writing. She says her mother was amused by what was written, but her younger sister Romy didn't find the collection as humorous. But what did Cazzie have to say about her famous dad?

Larry David was off the hook in his daughter Cazzie's memoir

As for her mom and sister's reactions to her book, Cazzie David told Entertainment Weekly, "My mom's developed a pretty good sense of humor based on having been with my dad for so many years while he was writing 'Curb' and 'Seinfeld,' so she's really good-natured about it. She kind of thinks, 'What would you do without me, you'd have no material!'" As for her younger sister, Cazzie said their mom is helping her out. "My mom has been a good mentor for my sister to learn how to have a sense of humor about it.'" 

Some members of her family had it easier than others, though, as Cazzie admitted. As she told Entertainment Weekly, "My dad ... probably got a little too much enjoyment from the writing that I did about my mother," she explained (Larry and Laurie David divorced in 2007, per the Los Angeles Times). "And he got off easy [in the book], let's just say that."

As for Larry David, he told the Los Angeles Times that he and Cazzie are very similar. (Perhaps why she went so easy on him?) "We have the same low opinion of ourselves," he said, later adding, "I don't encourage her to get well. I don't encourage her to like herself. I tell her: 'Don't change a thing,'" It may seem like strange advice, but Larry built his career on his neuroses, so it makes sense for him to encourage Cazzie to do the same. Since Cazzie basically spends the entire length of the memoir detailing her eccentricities, maybe it necessary for her to harp on her dad for his. They certainly seem like one intriguing family!
