It's a Monica and Rachel reunion. Whoo!

With all the Friends TV news this week, you fans were just a wee bit excited to read the report that Jennifer Aniston is nearing a deal to join Courteney Cox on Cougar Town early in the coming season.

So is it true? We just talked to Cougar executive producer Bill Lawrence and he says:

"Nothing's happened yet," Bill says. "I'd kill to get Jennifer on the show, and if I had any inclination it was happening, I would be telling everybody 'cause I don't really give a sh-t. I would love it to happen and the second it did I would tell everybody in the world, but nothing's happened."

"By the nature of Jennifer and Courteney's friendship," Lawrence continues, "they're gonna have to answer questions about that forever and ever...But the reality is Jennifer Aniston I think does anywhere from 70 to 80 movies a year. She works a lot, so it's tough to make that stuff work. But I'd love it to happen."
