The 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards happened last night and it was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel who performed in front of like, three camera operators and a producer. There were cardboard cutouts instead of humans in the audience. Even though that sounds like a late-night TV host’s idea of Hell on Earth, Jimmy still put in the effort for all three hours.
To lighten up this year’s bleak circumstances for the isolated ceremony, Jimmy brought out a few people to help present awards, like his good pal Jennifer Aniston, who helped save him from a trashcan fire. A fitting, if not accidental, metaphor for the year so far. She also popped up in a mini Friends reunion, which was surely a nice little distraction for those who can say it hasn’t been their day, their week, their month, or even their year.
Call it The One Where We Get Millions Of Dollars To Sit In A Room For An Hour because that’s basically what’s going to happen on the next episode of Friends. According to Deadline, Matthew Perry joining Instagram was the seventh seal of the Friendpocalypse and the details of the long-rumored, hour-long, unscripted reunion special to air on HBO Max, have been revealed. Deadline says that a deal has all but been finalized with all six Friends, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry, “following tough negotiations.” Which I take to mean that each Friend’s agent repeatedly responded to offers with a laughing face emoji until finally responding with a money mouth face emoji. Each Friend reportedly “will be paid in the $3 million-$4 million range.” *upside down face emoji*
The Jennifer Aniston Coochie Watch 2020 continues apace. At this past weekend’s SAG Awards, Jen’s cooch was spotted mere inches away from ex-husband William Bradley Pitt’s peen, (now there’s another celebrity genital to watch!) and people practically lost their shit at the possibility of Brad and Jen getting back together. Well, according to Entertainment Tonight, nosy randos aren’t the only ones invested in Bradiffer 2.0. (if I’m not mistaken, Brad and Jen missed the first wave of celebrity couple names. I’m not married to this one, but I don’t have all day. I did my best in the time allotted and am moving on!) Apparently Jen’s TV-BFF Courteney Cox is also shipping Bradiffer 2.0 (come on, it’s better than Jad!) and we know this because she liked “a slew of photos of the reunion” that were posted by Instagram account Comments by Celebrities. (OK, how about Jilliam Bradiston?)
Jennifer Aniston and has joined Instagram for the first time, and her inaugural post is a group shot of her and her so called “friends” Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, and Matthew Perry. I say “so called” because, according to Us Weekly, even though they’re all Insta vets (with the exception of Matthew, so he gets a pass), they still let her make her debut with a grainy under-lit selfie that cuts off the top of Matt’s head! Friends don’t let friends post shitty selfies!
Courteney Cox’s iconic 90s wardrobe doesn’t just live on in our hearts and minds. Apparently at least one item, a purple slip dress with a lace overlay, has been knocking around in the back of Courteney’s closet this whole time. Much to the delight of many, either Cournteney or her 15-year-old daughter Coco Arquette must have pulled it out from under a mountain of chunky Steve Madden clogs. Court posted a picture of Coco wearing the same purple dress her mom wore to the 1998 premiere of Snake Eyes starring Nicolas Cage, who at the time was still married to his first of 4 wives Patricia Arquette. Oh how times have changed.
Phoebe may be the best character on Friends, but compared to her co-stars, Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston, international treasure Lisa Kudrow was the least tabloid “famous”. We don’t read about her alleged botched plastic surgeries, or all of her failed relationships and loneliness the way we do with Court and Jen. And the same was true in the 90s: Jen was dating Brad Pitt, Courteney was in those Scream movies. And now, twenty years later when one normally assesses all the ways their previous traumas have shaped who they are, Lisa is talking about how back then being around her co-stars made her feel like the fat girl.
