As anyone who isn't Nell knows, this week Prince William and Duchess Catherine welcomed their son, Prince George Alexander Louis, in an event that nearly took over the internet with second-by-second commentary on everything from Kate's hair (she looked like she just stepped out of a salon, not the delivery room) to the baby's Seinfeldian name (George Costanza, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus). But more happened this week than just the birth of a babe who may or may not celebrate Festivus. So read on for your Internet fix:

Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer – also known as Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards – are reuniting this season on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, which stars Seinfeld co-creator Larry David and kicks off Sept. 20.
But first, the old gang came together to pose for the cover of Entertainment Weekly, which goes on sale Friday.
How was it slipping back into character for the cast of the former Must-See NBC show that passed permanently into Rerun Heaven in 1998?

Julia Roberts, Jerry Seinfeld, Robert Redford, Bill Clinton, Harry Connick Jr. and Kristin Chenoweth helped deliver some serious star power to Monday's Lincoln Center gala in New York on behalf of Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Camps and honor the beloved, late founder of the charity benefiting children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Among what they had to say about Newman, who died last year, was:
"We've done a lot of these galas," Julia Roberts said, after doing a dancing kick line with kids who have attended the camps. "And I've never stood up without my buddy Paul Newman. It seems so much easier to sing and dance and make a fool of yourself when he's right next to you. He encourages fun, more than any person I've ever met. "
"I went up to the camp and Paul had me eat my first oyster," Jerry Seinfeld said during a sidesplitting stand-up routine. "I had never had an oyster in my life. And he convinced me to eat one. And it was horrible and it was exciting. And I thought, this will be gross and I'll have a story: I had my first oyster with Paul Newman."

Apple has Steve Jobs as its pitchman, as well as Justin Long's popular "Mac Guy" character, so now rival Microsoft will have Jerry Seinfeld – who'll appear alongside company founder Bill Gates in new commercials for Windows Vista, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Seinfeld, 54, will be paid about $10 million for the ads, which are set to debut Sept. 4, says the newspaper. In all, Microsoft is prepared to spend $300 million to beef up its image, and is also considering Chris Rock and Will Ferrell as additional pitchmen.

Despite his gruff stage persona, offstage the late George Carlin was a gentleman who showed kindness to strangers and offered a hand to others hoping to beat addiction problems, Tom Arnold and other comics tell PEOPLE – while Jerry Seinfeld and Joan Rivers are expressing their appreciation of their unsentimental friend.
"Several times he'd call young comics who were messed up on drugs, and just introduce himself as 'George, a recovering addict, and why don't you go to a meeting with me or we can get together and talk,' " says Arnold, 49, who's also battled with drugs and alcohol. "And it blew them away. Nobody said no."
Arnold and those other comics who worked alongside Carlin over the decades made their remarks Monday night at Hollywood's the Laugh Factory, during a taping of Supreme Court of Comedy. Carlin, 71, died of heart failure Sunday.

Jessica Seinfeld, cookbook author and wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld, is being sued by the author of another kitchen how-to, accusing her of copyright infringement and defamation.
Missy Chase Lapine, author of The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids' Favorite Meals, filed a complaint in U.S. District Court in New York on Monday alleging Seinfeld plagiarized Lapine's book in writing her cookbook Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Getting your Kids Eating Good Food, published six months later.
"This action for copyright and trademark infringement and defamation arises from conduct that gives new meaning to the terms 'arrogance' and 'greed,'" says the lawsuit, which lists what it alleges are examples of identical language in the two cookbooks.
