If this is true, it is absolutely crazy!

Well this doesn't seem so friendly!
We're just under a week away from finally getting to see that highly anticipated Friends reunion, and it looks like NBC wants to ensure massive ratings for their James Burrows special.
That's because the Peacock Network just released an extended preview of their An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows, and things get pretty awkward for the cast.
While Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc may have been friends for over 22 years, Pheobe somehow only just learned that she was the only person who had to audition for their part twice!
Luckily, she doesn't seem too bothered by the news — she did win an Emmy for it eventually, after all!
Ch-ch-check out Lisa Kudrow's illuminating on-camera moment (below)!!!
It's like they're back at Central Perk!
As we reported, the entire Friends cast — except for Matthew Perry — reunited for a two-hour NBC special honoring famed sitcom director James Burrows!
Recently, the first promo was released, and it's making us totally nostalgic!
The Bravo personality asks the actors if it's true that they were forced to sign contracts agreeing to not have sex with each other!
To hear the answer, watch Must See TV: A Tribute to James Burrows on Sunday, February 21 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
In the meantime, ch-ch-check out the clip (below)
This could be the most star-studded photo of all time!
We've been hearing mostly mixed reports about NBC's upcoming TV Special that would see the first official Friends reunion since it went off the air back in 2004, but now there's actually photographic evidence to prove it's really happening.
Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc were joined for dinner by The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, and Simon Helberg following Sunday's Must See TV: A Tribute to James Burrows taping!
Unfortunately for Friends fans, co-creator Marta Kauffman said we won't be seeing a reboot of the beloved NBC sitcom anytime soon!
Speaking at Sunday's Television Critics' Association press tour, the showrunner admitted she found the series' long lived popularity "shocking."
The 59-year-old is also too busy with her current Netflix series Grace and Frankie to revisit her past success, telling Us Weekly:
Could this BE any lamer??
Remember how all of your '90s dreams were realized on Wednesday when it was reported that Friends would be having a televised reunion after nearly 12 years off the air?
Yeah… turns out it's not really happening after all.
Apparently, while all six cast members were wanted for NBC's upcoming two-hour tribute to director James Burrows, it looks like they'll have to settle for just five of them — so far!
That's because Matthew Perry unfortunately has a conflict with the February 21 special seeing as he's currently in London rehearsing for his play The End of Longing, which goes up February 2.
It was already announced that there was no guarantee Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, and Matthew would even tape anything together… and now it looks like it definitely won't be happening.
Still, we'd gladly take a Chandler-less reunion — it's better than nothing!

Why, you may ask?! Well it's because the A-listers keep it sweet and simple.
In a recent interview, the Leftovers actor opened up about his relationship with the Friends alum — revealing that he's constantly telling her "she's beautiful."
"Not to be corny, but it's true. So I constantly say that."
Awww! LOVES it.
On Sunday, the twosome were spotted out having a quiet dinner at Leona in Venice, CA.
An insider noted:
The Rachel haircut has never looked better!
For Tuesday's brand new episode of Making a Scene, James and his crew were tasked with making a "Very Special Episode" of Friends.
So naturally they went with an intervention for Ross' pet monkey Marcel. LOLz!!!
Not only is the humor on brand with the NBC sitcom, but James' portrayals of both Jennifer Aniston AND Matt Leblanc are pretty enlightening.
