NEW YORK, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus has snapped the so-called "Seinfeld" curse that was blamed for the failures of the former cast's follow-up projects.
Dreyfus, 45, not only stars in a hit TV comedy, but recently won the Emmy Award for best actress in a comedy to put next to the trophy she took home for best supporting actress for "Seinfeld" back in 1996.
"The New Adventures of the Old Christine," which is getting ready to start its second season, drew an average 13 million viewers per week in its first year, CBS reported.
"I kept wondering if this was really happening," the actress said. "It was a dream come true."
Dreyfus, a married mother of two sons in real life, said female viewers especially can relate to her character, a divorced working mother just trying to cope.
"I think women are relating to the struggle that Christine has, which is to keep a million balls in the air and trying to, sort of, I don't know, keep your head above water all the time," Louis-Dreyfus said. "That's certainly true for working mothers. But I don't think you have to be a working mother to like this. It's all about how hard it is, really to live."
