Worried that your favorite Friends actors who aren’t working as consistently as Jennifer Aniston are going broke and will one day have to appear on a show with the prefix or suffix “Celebrity” to earn a quick check? You already know that’s never going to happen, but People confirmed that Jen along with Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer get millions upon millions richer every year thanks to Friends reruns.
This is truly revolting, but I bet some truly perverted pervster out there is slightly titillated. The Graham Norton Show seems to be the choice for celebrities who want to relate their most disgusting stories. For example, remember the Friends episode where Rachel made trifle and the pages of her cookbook got stuck together and she made it with the ingredients of shepherd’s pie? (Jeez, how did that show remain on the air for so long?) Well, Matt LeBlanc (aka Joey) somehow ended up eating the trifle that David Schwimmer regurgitated?
“There was too much on his plate. So he starts to eat it all and he starts laughing, and we cut,” LeBlanc recounted. “We’re cutting, and he spits it back on his plate. I’m sitting right next to him, and I’m looking the other way. I didn’t see him spit it back on his plate.”
So LeBlanc ended up eating it in the next scene they shot. You can get the full story below. You don’t have to, though. No one’s forcing you.
Lisa Kudrow was on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday night to promote her new movie Table 19, and a caller asked her what was the worst behavior from a guest star on Friends. Lisa mentioned one guest star who was a straight-up sexist asshole to her. To Phoebe, of all people!
“The worst behavior, off the top of my head? I rehearsed without makeup most of the week, and then on show night, I’m in hair and makeup, and I was told, ‘Oh wow, now you’re fuckable.’ That’s bad behavior, I’d say.”
When asked by fellow guest Jennifer Beals if she retaliated in any way, Lisa said she went and told Matt LeBlanc, because “he’s like a big brother.” During the Watch What Happens Live aftershow, Andy Cohen asked Lisa if the guest star was Charlie Sheen. Lisa says it wasn’t. Okay, well that leaves about…oh my god, so many options. You know what? I’m not going to say out loud who I think the alleged asshole is, but I’m just going to leave this here.
Lisa didn’t say what happened after she told Matt LeBlanc. But I like to imagine he cornered said actor with the chick and the duck in the darkest corner of the Central Perk set and taught him a lesson in manners. “Now you go say your sorry, or else we’ll have no choice but to bring Marcel the Monkey into this.”
Ever since Friends ended in 2004, fans of Friends fans (Frans?) have been waiting for a reunion, because they really want to see more of Ross, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, the “Could I BE anymore…” guy and the one who always wants to know how you’re doing. Some of the cast has sort of gotten together a couple times, but never for an official reunion thing. Courteney Cox explained back in 2015 that even if they wanted to do a reunion, there was always one person (*cough* Schwimmer *cough*) who wasn’t into it. There’s another friend who isn’t feeling a reunion, and it’s Lisa Kudrow.
While watching E!’s awkward and messy red carpet coverage, I nearly put my bong away, because I got secondhand high, drunk and whatever from Matt LeBlanc. (But then I quickly clenched my bong like it was 9″ dick, because I remembered that I still had more Giuliana Rancid interviews to get through.)
The generic brand Ryan Seacrest (which is saying a lot since Ryan Seacrest is the generic brand Ryan Seacrest) called Jason Kennedy asked Matt LeBlanc some stupid questions on the Emmy red carpet and Joey Tribbiani was the opposite of thrilled to be there. But when Jason mentioned that Emilia Clarke, who plays that dragon chick on Game of Thrones, was with Giuliana at that very moment, he got a body boner and perked up. Emilia fangirled over Matt when they were on The Graham Norton Show together a few months ago.
Jason asked Matt if he watches GoT, and he went full creepy uncle when he said that he watched it the first season and stopped, but needs to catch up, because “that’s when she started getting naked.” I could practically hear his tip get moist when he said that. Matt IS that gross uncle who tells you that you’re really filling out and always tries to peck you on the mouth.

Emilia laughed it off and said, “I’ve watched Friends. I don’t remember him getting naked, though.”
I blame Ryan Seacrest’s Sunday night understudy for this! If Jason Kennedy never asked Matt LeBlanc about GoT, I would not have the image of him going home tonight to watch GoT while fucking a dragon Fleshlight, and you know he’ll keep his Ray-Bans on. Damn you, SeacrestBot 2.0.
And here’s Emilia looking like a fancy condom and Giuliana looking like Miss Havisham’s mothball-covered curtains at the Emmys tonight.

When it was rumored that the entire cast of Friends was going to reunite, people who watched all of that shit religiously had the same reaction I would have if an It’s A Living reunion was announced. They squirted out a foamy stream of excitement. But it turns out it wasn’t really a reunion. They just sat at the same table and said words together at NBC’s tribute to James Burrows which taped in L.A. last night. Johnny Galecki, who dressed up like a snobby French gallery owner, posted a picture on Instagram of the cast of Friends with the cast of The Big Bang Theory. Matthew Perry isn’t in the picture because even he doesn’t want to be seen with Kaley Cuoco. No, Chandler’s in London doing some play, so he couldn’t make it.
Never mind that Courteney Cox’s transformation into the plastic baby of Pete Burns and Michael Jackson is almost complete, I don’t think I ever really noticed how much of a hot silver top daddy Matt LeBlanc is now. And seeing him behind Jim Parsons and David Schwimmer is giving me Joey/Ross/Sheldon gay spit roast fantasies.
