Katzenberg kid’s big break.

Jeffrey Katzenberg is a Hollywood mogul, but he’s not a swinger. That’s according to his son, David, co-creator, with Seth Grahame-Smith, of the cheerfully raunchy new MTV comedy The Hard Times of RJ Berger, about an exceptionally well-endowed high school sophomore with sexually adventurous parents. Though the creators drew from their own experiences, the parents aren’t the only thing they exaggerated. “Combined, Seth and I are huge,” Katzenberg jokes. “Not that we’ve checked,” Grahame-Smith hastens to add. Still, young Katzenberg is clearly something of a catch: He was once linked with Mary-Kate Olsen, and he’s been dating Nicky Hilton for several years now, though he denies rumors of their betrothal. “Every time we’re not seen for a few weeks, they say we’re getting engaged,” he complains. “They say the same thing about you and me,” Grahame Smith says.
