During a Monday appearance on Bethenny, the former Friends star shared that her 14-year-old son isn’t looking for his parents to expand their tight-knit trio — not now, not ever!
“He doesn’t want siblings. Since he could talk he’d say, ‘No, no I don’t want a sister or a brother,’” the actress, 48, recalls. “Someone would get pregnant and he’d say, ‘But you’re not, right?’”
Still, Kudrow admits the future of an only child has her feeling sorry for her son. »

Lisa Kudrow has described her Web Therapy character Fiona as a "terrible person". Kudrow previewed Web Therapy's latest season in an interview with TV Guide, explaining that the story arc centres on self-centred therapist Fiona seeking help from her sister (Julia Louis-Dreyfus). "Fiona sees her sister for therapy and her sister destroys her, but in an unobvious way," Kudrow revealed. She further explained: "Fiona starts rethinking her whole life and the next time we see her she's in bed, in tears, no make-up, pyjamas - just a mess. And we've never (more) »

Happy Fourth of July Weekend, Part I. It remains to be seen whether July 4 falling on a Wednesday is the best or worst possible scenario for festivities celebrating our nation’s 236th birthday. But at least we have a returning hero who wears the red, white, and (black and) blue on his sleeve. Spider-Man swings back into action after disappearing for… well, only five years. Andrew Garfield might be a Brit, but he was born in Los Angeles, so his Spidey is more All-American that the current Batman and upcoming Superman. U – S – A! U – S – A!!

Web Therapy's Fiona Wallice is crude, rude and she finally wants to become a better person in Season 2. But can she?
"Fiona sees her sister (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) for therapy and her sister destroys her, but in an unobvious way," Lisa Kudrow, who plays Fiona, tells TVGuide.com. "So Fiona starts rethinking her whole life and the next time we see her she's in bed, in tears, no makeup, pajamas — just a mess. And we've never seen her like that."

And unsurprisingly, it will be short-lived.

Craig Ferguson has been here before. For the second time since 2009, the power went out in his "basement" studio, and he was forced to do an even darker than usual broadcast of "The Late Late Show" (Weeknights, 12:37 a.m .Et on CBS). That said, Ferguson seems to revel in these mishaps, poking fun at the usual darkness of the studio by saying that he thought the lack of power might have been an improvement.
Guest Lisa Kudrow had fun with the power as well. "Isn’t this show owned by a huge conglomerate?" she asked. "I don’t understand!"
Luckily, Ferguson and his guests won't have to worry about it much longer. According to The Washington Post, Ferguson is scheduled to relocate his show to a new studio with better equipment -- and lighting? -- by the end of this summer.

It's difficult for many TV fans to think of Lisa Kudrow as anything other than the lovably goofy Phoebe Buffay on "Friends."
And for Kudrow, who is promoting Season 2 of her Showtime series "Web Therapy" (premieres Monday, July 2 at 11 p.m. Et), is can be a challenge as well. The actress told “Today” that she struggled with who she was playing when fellow "Friends" alum David Schwimmer, who played Ross, appeared as a guest star on "Web Therapy."
"That's a big deal," Kudrow said of Schwimmer's stint. "It was so fun and I did have like, 10 seconds, when we first started of, 'I don't know what Phoebe says to Ross here.'"
Schwimmer will appear in a four-episode arc of "Web Therapy" as Newell Miller, who first appears to be a stalker, but is the son of a professor Fiona (Kudrow) had an affair with in college. He saw the »

It’s not hard to understand why the concept behind Web Therapy would appeal to Showtime: it’s a super low-budget formula that banks heavily on the Lisa Kudrow’s quirkily arrogant performance as a frustrated therapist, and the barrage of familiar faces that pop up as her patients. Even for a show that banks on awkward moments and absurdly, impossibly large egos clashing together, Web Therapy isn’t a stand-out show when it comes to its comedy. The painfully unfortunate moments when Kudrow butts heads with the likes of Lily Tomlin, Victor Garber, or Jane Lynch can elicit chuckles, but that’s it and that’s not enough to sustain interest in a show where all you get are (literally) talking heads.

They no longer share a show, but Lisa Kudrow and Matt LeBlanc still share a network, so the former Friends stars reunited last night in L.A. to celebrate the second season of Matt's Showtime comedy, Episodes.
Video - Matt LeBlanc: My Friends Won't Call Me Back
Lisa, who co-created and stars in Showtime's Web Therapy, has previously said she's game for a crossover episode whenever Matt wants! "He is so great, so funny. I hope he'll have time." But that hasn't stopped her from tapping her other famous Friends for cameos. Courteney Cox appeared in three episodes last year, and David Schwimmer will pop up in the new season, premiering July 2 at 11 p.m.
Matt LeBlanc really doesn't want to disappoint people by having a "Friends" reunion.
While promoting his Showtime series "Episodes," LeBlanc touched on the topic every former "Friend" gets asked about: whether there will ever be a reunion.
"I don't want to see old Joey," he told EW.
In the EW interview, LeBlanc said that "Friends" was about a "finite period of time, before you got married and went off to start your life with a family," a time everyone can relate to. He said checking in on the characters now would "disappoint most people."
"Everyone’s going to have different vision of what those characters are like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people," he said. "A couple of people will go, 'That's what I thought!' but for the most part it’s going to let people down. It's better to let them just think. »

David Schwimmer has discussed his on-screen reunion with Friends co-star Lisa Kudrow. Schwimmer will feature in the second season of Kudrow's Showtime series Web Therapy, and agreed to play the role after an invitation from Kudrow herself. "I was really excited when [Lisa] called," Schwimmer told Access Hollywood. "Actually, she e-mailed first and said, 'Hey, would you ever do a thing on the thing?' And I was like, 'Yeah!' "Then I met with them, and we all talked about what the idea was and the character, and I have (more) »

His newest endeavor is Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight?, a memoir detailing his experience as a father along with his husband and producing partner Don Roos. We spoke with Dan about parenthood, gay representation in the media, and his role in the NBC drama Scandal.
AfterElton: What made you decide to write Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight?
Dan Bucatinsky: You know, I'd like to say that it was a decision that I set out to write a book, and the truth is I didn't really, not at the beginning. About five years ago, right around the time that I became a parent, I started performing with other authors and writers and comedians in an evening »
