Jennifer Aniston claims to have lived with a ghost who hated her roommate


I haven’t seen Dumplin’ yet but I want to – I ‘ve heard a lot of good things about it. I’m supposed to wait for my daughter to see it but I can get an appointment at the DMV sooner than find a hole is her schedule. In the meantime, I’ll just have to settle for Jennifer Aniston working the talk-show circuit to promote it, which is fine by me, especially when she appears with Dolly Parton. Jennifer and Dolly swung by The Late Show with James Cordon. While there, James seemingly broke the news to Jennifer that Netflix had just paid $100M to keep Friends reruns up for one more year. Naturally, this led to a discussion about the possibility of a Friends reboot. According to Jennifer, “the girls” are all for it but it’s “the boys” that are the holdout. To hurry past any more speculation, Jennifer proposed that Monica, Phoebe and Rachel put out their own Golden Girl-esque show.

I don’t think they will ever reboot Friends. I really hope they won’t. I agree with Lisa Kudrow that the story just wouldn’t work now. All but Joey are married and/or with kids. If they were all still hanging out together all the time, we’d find them sad and neglectful parents. I loved Will & Grace when it was at its height and gave the reboot a try but I had to stop, it was ruining my fondness for the original show. The one episode I watched of the Murphy Brown update did the same. Just watching Friends reruns through today’s lens points out its flaws and foibles, rebooting it would surely kill my crush. But I also wonder if the cast really does want it to happen. I never get the impression they do. I know they, the women especially, like working together but they’ve all appeared on each other’s shows so they can continue that and the occasional skit. I think their ‘desire’ to do a reboot is lip service for the fans. I don’t hate the idea of a Golden Friends show with the three women. Maybe they could propose that in like, 20 years.

Since I have no desire for a Friends reboot, I would far prefer to hear about the haunted apartment Jennifer lived in when she first moved in to LA. She told a skeptical James that they even brought in a ghost hunter who found out the ghost hated Jennifer’s roommate – so Jennifer moved out. There’s your reboot idea – have the Golden Friends move into a bungalow with a ghost who serves as the fourth roommate.

    Only if the ghost haunting them is Heckles! Or Marcel!

    Friends worked because of the era it was in. Think best to leave it alone & just enjoy reruns. Always loved dolly Parton. My frustration with Jennifer is she always looks stunned when asked a question. Like a deer in the headlights. She has the best Publicist, so she’s not going to be asked difficult questions & seems to always go to her friends to interview her, so why does she always look scared?

      If the answers to my questions, even the innocuous ones, were repeated and analyzed for actual years, I might be apprehensive answering questions too.

    “a ghost hunter who found out the ghost hated Jennifer’s roommate – so Jennifer moved out”
    ahahahaha I found that super amusing. Girl, the ghost was cool with you – they just didn’t like your choice of roommate! Make a deal with the ghost to get rid of them and in exchange they don’t bother you! ahhaha.

    Honestly, I guess they could probably do a sort of reboot if they made it more like Modern Family or something. It’d have to focus on their families otherwise, like Hecate said, I think it’d just come off as them ditching their kids all of the time.

      We lived with a ghost for 16 years…a 6 year old boy who showed himself to my son (also 6 at the time) about 3 weeks after we moved in. We’d been in the house 6 or 7 years before we found a headstone in the crawl space under the house. We went to City Hall and found birth records, but no death report or obituary. His name was Sam and he was very, very mischievous. Sam really didn’t like one of the boarders I brought in and harassed him (hiding stuff, etc). He did end up being a not very nice person. I wished I’d listened to ‘Sam’ sooner. ….

        OMG I would have run screaming from the house!!

        That is such a cool story, Thirsty Hirsty! Thanks for sharing! My aunt also lived with a ghost. Apparently it was an elderly lady, who loved her two sons / my cousins.

    Enough with the reboots! There are loads of original shows that rely on viewers to survive.

    I enjoyed Dumplin’ Go Netflix

  7. Myrtle says:

    I would watch the Golden Girls version – great idea! It could be very funny to see Phoebe, Rachel and Monica living in an upscale retirement complex like Laurelmead (in Providence, RI) and getting into all kinds of mischief. Or something like that. Love it!

    P.S. We shouldn’t have to wait 40 years for this show, either, if I’m doing the math correctly. LOL

  8. Abigail Benedict says:

    …I’m kind of laughing because Jennifer said “in 40 years” and Hecate said in 20years….haha. Jennifer thinks she needs to be 90 to be a Golden Friend. Maybe so, if she looks like that at almost 50.

    I am here for all the ghost stories!

      +1. Love ghost stories. My siblings saw and heard our grandad right after he passed away, at his house, and later my grandmother showed herself on the security video at their house, very briefly, right after she passed also. Our whole extended family, including people who “don’t believe in ghosts” agreed it was her.

    Yes more ghost stories!
