Victor/Victoria, move over: Kathleen Turner will play Matthew Perry's FATHER on a special May 17 hour version of "Friends," reports columnist Liz Smith. The episode, reports Smith, will contain a scene in which Monica (Courteney Cox Arquette) happens upon the father of her soon groom-to-be, Chandler (Perry), in a nightclub. Dad is dressed in drag and perched atop a piano, singing "It's Raining Men." "That's my dad!" Chandler exclaims. Smith asked Turner who will play Turner's mate. Replied the actress: "The lovely Morgan Fairchild! She is my wife . . . Chandler's mother! Is that great, or what?"
