Friends Reunion CONFIRMED

    Oh. My. God.
    A Friends reunion!?

    The news broke last night that our six favourite chums will be
    getting back together one last time.

    The buzz has been unreal.






    Ever since the last episode aired in 2004, we’ve all been crying out for a reunion.

    The internet just can’t handle it if the stars are spotted together.



    But after years of false hopes and rumours, it seems it’s actually finally happening!




    Well, we were – until we dug a little deeper.



    We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but it doesn’t look like we’ll be finding out what happened to the gang any time soon.

    Rather than being the two-hour long special episode that we all assumed it would be, in fact it’s a documentary celebrating TV director James Burrows’ career. Burrows has directed several episodes of Friends, along with eps of Will and Grace, Frasier, and The Big Bang Theory.

    So we will see Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc and co, but only as themselves, commenting on Burrows and the show. However, even NBC chief Robert Greenblatt admits it’ll be hard to get them all together:

    “I’m hoping all six will be in the same room at the same time,

    […] I’m not sure we can logistically pull it off.”

    Oh maaaan.

    It might not be exactly what we wanted, but it’ll still be fun to see them (fingers crossed) all together. The show is scheduled to air 21st Feb this year.

    When we last saw the pals leaving the big apartment for the last time, it seemed it was time for them to go off and be ‘proper adults’. Two of the couples had children, while Phoebe was married, and Joey was being… well just Joey. The babies, Emma, Jack and Erica were all under the age of two at this point. Meaning in 2016, Emma would be approaching 14-years-old!

    Why did it have to end there? Surely there was plenty of opportunities for gags about parenting, especially as the kids got older. We’d already had a lot of laughs about pregnancy, giving birth, and rearing the little ones – think Ross and Rachel singing Baby Got Back…

    We’d definitely like to see how the Gellar-Greens tackle a teenage Emma, and how the Bings are dealing with the twins. And if Joey is still…well Joey.


    All we can do for now is dream about a brand-spanking-new episode. Surely we won’t have to wait another 12 years?!

    OKAY I'M ANGRY! If this is not a platform to share your opinions then where else right?! So here it goes, you may have seen Mattel are doing a Barbie version of FRIDA KAHLO, the profoundly inspirational Mexican Artist. Well on the surface it sounds positive – celebrating female cultural icons etc, but it’s in fact not at all what it seems. . . Zac and I adore this woman and are huge fans. Frida Kahlo represented not just a fearless and boundless expression of individuality, but she stood firmly on the side of those in society that were forgotten about. In her art she explored questions of identity, post-colonialism, gender, class, and race in Mexican society. She was simply brilliant, and an inspiration to all us mothers raising daughters. . . Salma Hayek portrayed her brilliantly in the 2002 Bipoic (please watch it if you haven’t already!) and said Frida was “one of the forces that gave me the determination to pursue my career”. . . On to what Mattel are doing. Firstly – despite what some bloggers like to shill on social media, the Barbie doll is not something positive for any child in my view. It does not represent uniqueness, and when Frida becomes SLIM and more LIGHT SKINNED with LIGHT EYES, that’s when lines are being crossed. This is not just cultural appropriation for commercial gain, but the very colonial re-shaping of identity she stood against. . . LEAVE FRIDA ALONE.
