Friends-giving: A Look Back at the Show's Funniest Thanksgiving Moments

Originally posted 11/28/2013 06:00AM

While this season serves up plenty of decadent feasts and warm, fuzzy feelings, time spent with loved ones is often fraught with tension. And that was certainly true for the Friends gang throughout the series' many Thanksgiving episodes.

Despite their petty spats and various mishaps, Monica, Joey, Chandler, Phoebe, Ross and Rachel always eventually recognized what the holiday was truly about (even if that realization took the heartwarming sight of Ugly Naked Guy sharing a turkey with Ugly Naked Gal). Here's a look back at some of our favorite moments.

How TV Shows Have Hidden Stars's Pregnancies

Originally posted 11/14/2013 09:00AM

It's the baby news heard 'round the world: Kerry Washington is expecting her first child, and while we're excited for the actress, it leaves fans of Scandal scratching their heads about what Washington's bump means for Olivia Pope.

Producer Shonda Rimes has remained mum since Washington's October announcement about whether the pregnancy will be written into the show, but should she choose not to, there's plenty of past precedent to draw from on how to handle a star's changing shape, ranging from the subtle to the downright ridiculous.

Nostalgia Alert: 18 Years Ago, Ross and Rachel First Kissed on Friends

18 Years Ago, Ross and Rachel First Kissed on Friends

Originally posted 11/09/2013 03:00PM

This weekend marks the anniversary of a very special episode of Friends, aptly titled "The One Where Ross Finds Out," which first aired on Nov. 9, 1995.

A little background: When the second season began, Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) showed up at the airport to tell Ross (David Schwimmer) his romantic feelings were requited, but soon discovered he was dating fellow paleontologist Julie.

By this episode, Rachel resolves to move on and lets Monica fix her up. The world's worst date ensues, during which Rachel chugs wine and obsesses over Ross and Julie. An intoxicated Rachel then proceeds to aggressively borrow another diner's giant cellphone (reminder: this was 1995) and leave a humiliating message on Ross's answering machine, proclaiming she's "over him."

The pair reminisced about how much they enjoyed working on the iconic sitcom, which ended nine years ago, and Perry, 43, admitted, "If I had a time machine, I would like to go back to 2004 and not have stopped."

Kudrow agreed: "If it were up to us, you know, individually, then yes. I would keep going … We had a lot of fun."

Matthew Perry's Untold Story: My Life as an Addict

Originally posted 07/06/2013 03:05PM

At 24, Matthew Perry landed a role that would utterly change his life – and help define a generation: Chandler Bing on Friends.

Along with his five castmates, his face was suddenly on everything from calendars to coffee mugs, and his salary ballooned to $1 million an episode. As his sardonic alter ego might have put it, "Could he be any more famous?"

But behind the scenes, Perry struggled with a serious alcohol problem. Then, after a 1997 Jet Ski accident, a doctor prescribed him Vicodin and said, "'Here, take this.' I did, and I felt better than I ever felt in my entire life," Perry says. "I had a big problem with pills and alcohol, and I couldn't stop."

A little too friendly?

That was the scene for Jennifer Aniston when she sought some impromptu hosting advice from her former Friends costar Matthew Perry in a funny new skit to promote her Wednesday gig as co-host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

In the clip (watch it below), Aniston knocks Perry's door to get some tips from her former castmate, who also has co-hosted the show.

"We haven't actually seen each other in like a really long time, 8 years. ... You really should have called," said a nervous Perry, who looked on sheepishly as their mutual pal and former costar Courteney Cox emerges from his house after an obvious sleepover.
