It’s a “Friends” reunion! Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer are back on the screen this season in “Web Therapy,” the first time since “Friends” went off the air in 2004.“I actually got confused for the first like five seconds and I was like, ‘I don’t remember what Phoebe’s line to Ross is here,’” she confessed to “Extra's" Renee Bargh. “I did get a little confused, but not for long.”
Watch the interview and find out who else is guest starring on “Web Therapy” this season!
Kudrow stars in the improv series as Fiona Wallice, a therapist who believes in limiting sessions to just three-minute web chats. Tune in at 11 PM on Monday to catch the premiere on Showtime.
Actress Lisa Kudrow headed to The Grove to talk with "Extra" correspondent Renee Bargh about the upcoming third season of her show, "Who Do You Think You Are?"
"We'll take a celebrity for a week and trace their genealogy," explained Kudrow. "It's very compelling, many dramatic stories."
For example, Hollywood A-lister Blair Underwood finds out who his ancestors were. Kudrow said, "African-American history can be really difficult with the wall of slavery, but we were able to find documents and trace it back. This one ancestor was actually in a newspaper article and his life ended in a mental institution... there's a lot more in that story."
Lisa Kudrow stopped by The Grove on Tuesday to analyze her new role as short-tempered Dr. Fiona Wallice in "Web Therapy." The Showtime series, which first began online, moved to a 30-minute comedy on TV.
Kudrow revealed, "It's a horrible woman I play."
As Dr. Wallice, Kudrow offers online therapy sessions, which last exactly three minutes. The actress explained where the three-minute idea came from. "We thought because of the Internet and everyone trying to get everything done at work... it's probably one thing that would be offered and it's a horrible idea and that's what makes it funny."
At this year's Webby Awards, stars joked and gave their thoughts on whether Congressman Anthony Weiner should step down from his position in light of his sexting scandal.
Lisa Kudrow, host of the 15th Annual Webbys, said of the NY politician, "You got caught tweeting your... privates!" Actress Valerie Bertinelli scoffed, "We have Schwarzenegger being a pig and now we have a Weiner being a pig. Really?!"
Singer Justin Bieber took home his first honors at the 15th Annual Webby Awards, celebrating the best of the Internet.
Bieber's Funny or Die.com video "Justin Bieber Takes over Funny or Die.com" won in the Comedy: Individual Short or Episode category, despite his competitor, the comedy website CollegeHumor.com and its Twitter campaign to "steal" votes from the young pop star.
From Twitter to Team Coco, this year's awards honored a wide variety of entrants -- in categories such as activism, music, comedy short and sports -- for their excellence in website design, interactive advertising, film and video, mobile and apps.
"Friends" actress turned executive producer Lisa Kudrow joined "Extra" at The Grove on Friday to talk about her emotional show, "Who Do You Think You Are?" on NBC. The show follows celebrities as they trace their family roots to discover surprising stories of tragedy, success and bravery.
Kudrow tells Mario Lopez about the first episode of the second season which features Vanessa Williams learning something new about both her great-great-grandfathers. Other celebrity appearances on the show will include Steve Buscemi, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim McGraw, Rosie O'Donnell, Ashley Judd, Lionel Richie and Kim Cattrall.
Sarah Jessica Parker linked to the Salem witch hunts? Brooke Shields comes from royalty? Lisa Kudrow helps her "Friends" trace their ancestry in a new NBC show called "Who Do You Think You Are?"
"Extra" sat down with Kudrow to find out more. "It's part investigation, and then it's part very emotional drama," Lisa described.
Take Sarah Jessica Parker, for example. Kudrow found out that Sarah's 10th great grandmother was accused of killing a neighbor with an evil spell during the 1692 Salem witch trials. "What? It blew me away and it blew Sarah Jessica away, too," Kudrow says. Meanwhile, Brooke Shields finds out she is a direct descendant of France's King Louis XIV! Oui!
