How they doin’?
It’s safe to say that most people have watched an episode of Friends. It’s probably safe to assume that many have watched the entire series. And there are those of us who have seen each and every episode multiple times and can quote it and incorporate into daily life. But can the stars of Friends say the same thing?
Jennifer Aniston appeared on The Graham Norton Show with her pal Reese Witherspoon as the two were promoting their new series, The Morning Show. In case you are one of the few who don’t know Friends by heart, Witherspoon played Jill Green, Rachel’s little sister, and along with fellow guest, Julie Andrews, their knowledge of the hit show was tested. Ian McKellen was also on-hand to play the game’s host and let’s just say they were all winners.
From Reese getting to re-enact one of the best lines ever uttered by a guest star, to Aniston rapping the opening line to “Baby Got Back,” it was all amazing — but things went to another level when Dame Julie got in on the action. Well done, all.
Jason Momoa let a bear eat a cookie from his mouth because, sure, what the hell?
If Jason Momoa would shave off his beautiful beard to raise awareness for recyclable aluminum and switching to water in cans, not plastic, then he’ll do anything. And if that means going mouth-to-mouth with a grizzly bear, so be it.
In the second episode of his new series, See, Momoa took on a bear in a fight but in order to train for that, he told Apple Music’s Beats 1 host Julie Adenuga, “You have to get it slowly close to you, and be able to interact with it.” So he did that. By putting a cookie in his mouth. And allowing the bear to come up and grab said cookie.
“The bear needs to know your scent,” he wrote on his Instagram video. Momoa could’ve just took his shirt off and tossed it the animal’s way but, nooooo, he wanted to get a slobbery kiss for his efforts. Sigh. We’ve never wanted to be a bear more.
Ariana Grande reflected on how much she’s “learned and healed” in the past year
There’s something in the air right now, as a couple of our favourite your celebs have taken stock of their lives and pondered where they are now versus where they were last year. First, Demi Lovato looked back on how much she’s achieve in the last 15 months. Then Ariana Grande celebrated the first anniversary of her hit single, “Thank U, Next,” which was quite the game-changer for the singer.
In a series of tweets, Ari not only paid homage to one of her most authentic songs ever, but she also revealed some very personal things, like all the alone time she’s had over the last year, how much therapy she’s gone through, how much she’s learned and healed, and how she still has ways to go.
happy birthday ‘thank u, next’.
i can’t believe i’ve spent more time alone this year than i have in my life, i can’t believe how many sessions w my therapist i’ve had, how many times i’ve sung this song, how much i’ve learned and healed, how much i still have to learn and heal !
— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) November 3, 2019
“It’s been one [hell] of a productive, emotional, wild and yet … happy! year,” she continued. “Thankful for my babies who have provided me with endless strength, energy and inspiration… and to my friends who have held me together on the road and at home. i’m sure they’re just as exhausted lmao.”
Ari joked that the only thing in her love life are her pets, which might mean she’s not with Mikey Foster, after all.
Grande added that she’s not sure why the anniversary of “Thank U, Next” made her ramble but one thing’s for sure: her “heart feels good.” And even though there’s so much that’s unknown and she has lots of questions, she’s “accepted it and feel[s] somewhat whole and that feels like something worth sharing.”
“Thank U, Next” was Ariana’s first song to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. In it, she mentioned all her exes — Big Sean, Ricky Alvarez, Pete Davidson and the late Mac Miller — before her anthem turned to the real focus: herself. Perfect.
Grey’s Anatomy star Caterina Scorsone is pregnant
Just like her Grey’s Anatomy character, Amelia Shepherd, her portrayer is also expecting. Caterina Scorsone took to Instagram to announce that she and husband Rob Giles are preparing for Baby No. 3. Pfft. A bun in the oven is so overrated. Pumpkins, on the other hand …

Many of her co-stars were quick to comment with congratulations including Kevin McKidd, Camilla Luddington, Greg Germann, Alex Blue Davis and the Shondaland team.
Scorsone and Giles have two daughters, Eliza, 7 and Paloma, 3, who goes by the nickname, Pippa. It was in 2016 when Pippa was diagnosed with Down syndrome, and the actress has been all about raising awareness and sharing what an incredible gift their youngest has been and continues to be.

As Down syndrome awareness month comes to a close I want to post one more time. A lot of parents who find out their new baby has Down syndrome worry about what the impact of having a child with differences will be on their other kids. They haven’t seen it modeled so they are afraid of it. I wish I could show everyone the joy and sweetness and love that has expanded and grown in our family since Pippa was born. There is no book, or movie, or conversation that I could have with my older daughter that would have taught her the love and perspective that having a sister with differences has. The two of them are crazy about each other and the differences give rise to a kind of tenderness I could only have wished for between typical siblings. Pippa is truly the greatest gift I could have given her big sister and I am so deeply grateful that she chose our family to shake up and wake up with her light. 💛💙✨ #downsyndromeawareness #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #soundon🔊 @beyonce
Caterina’s first pregnancy was written into her character’s storyline when she starred on the Grey’s spinoff, Private Practice, while her second one wasn’t. Hmm, looks like a pattern as Amelia is expecting a baby with Link. What’s better for Caterina? No more hiding behind bigger scrubs and giant plants.
Zooey Deschanel and Jonathan Scott went as Catwoman and Batman to his brother’s wedding
You know how there’s another Hemsworth brother? That’s right, aside from Chris and Liam, there’s also Luke. And similarly to the Australian bros, there are the Canadian Scott brothers. While twins Jonathan and Drew get much of the attention, their older brother, J.D., isn’t a total mystery and has appeared on their shows.
Well, J.D. and his longtime girlfriend, Annalee Belle, tied the knot in a vintage Halloween-themed wedding and it was fun for everyone — especially their guests.
Jonathan’s new girl, Zooey Deschanel, took to Instagram to share just how magical the night was. And rather than show up in typical wedding guest garb, Zooey and Jonathan got into the spirit of things for the reception.

It’s the first time I’ve ever been cat-woman escorted to a fancy dress party wedding by Batman. Only for the nuptials of @mrjdscott and @annaleebelle could I be so inspired! Congrats to these gorgeous and gracious love birds, I was overjoyed to celebrate such a happy union! ❤️💕❤️💕 Photos by: @dennydenn
Nothing says love like Batman and Catwoman. Jonathan and Zooey are proof of that; the jury’s still out on Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz. But we digress. Deschanel not only congratulated the couple on their inspirational wedding but also that she was “overjoyed to celebrate such a happy union.”
And the bride and groom couldn’t have loved her post more. Annalee commented, “We’re so so happy you were able to be there with us!” and added that their costumes were “great.” J.D., on the other hand, wrote, “Cat-Woman! My nemesis. Damn you and your charming personality and amazing costume. Curses for sneaking onto the guest list and making my family so happy. You may have won this one but we shall meet again.” Aw. Jonathan, looks like you’ve got a keeper on your hands.
