39A Friends Movie At Last?

I have to say, I’m just not super-psyched about this. I didn’t even really watch the last few seasons of Friends, so I don’t have any idea where they’d even pick up, but word on the street is that the box office success of Sex and the City has encouraged the cast of Friends to get together for a movie.

Apparently all the other cast members had been interested for awhile, but Jennifer Aniston was dragging her heels.

“As the biggest star of the Friends franchise, Jennifer can’t help but look at what’s happened with Sarah Jessica Parker and the Sex And The City film and be a little jealous,” says a source. “What’s held back a Friends movie so far is that people were worried that Jennifer had simply become too famous to play Rachel again.”

But Jennifer is apparently on board now, and production on the film has been given the green light. If all goes well, it should hit theaters in the next 18 months or so.

What do you guys think?

Good idea or bad idea?

10Hell Hath No Fury …

Verne Troyer’s spurned ex-girlfriend and sex tape parter, Ranae Shrider, signed a declaration filed in federal court in Los Angeles stating the tape was created with her video camera. Her statement prompted a judge to allow TMZ to reinstate a post featuring snippets of the tape.

The judge has still barred a porn distributor named in a $20 million lawsuit filed by Troyer from distributing or taking orders for the 50-minute tape.

However, TMZ reports that now Ranae herself is shopping the tape around town. They think a deal may have been reached, and the tape could be available as early as next week. Oh, please, please, please let it happen!

Ranae was reportedly asking $25,000 for the tape.

Do these people have no sense of money?

That tape is worth so much more than $25K it’s not even funny.

Shit, Ranae, if you’re reading this, I’ll give you $35K for it right now. Seriously just give me as long as it takes to get it out of my 401K. And if I had $500K I’d give you that for it. Sweetie, do not settle for $25,000 here.

18Katie Holmes Is an Actress?

I’d nearly forgotten, and so, it seems, have all of New York’s theatergoers.

The much-hyped Broadway revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, in which Katie Holmes will star, is having some trouble selling tickets.

“I bought 1,000 tickets to the show,” says one broker. “I still have them.”

Compare this to Nicole Kidman’s 1998 B’way role in The Blue Room, which sold out like crazy and landed a then-lesser-known Nicole on the cover of Newsweek. (In fairness, Nicole got naked in that play.)

No one’s viewed Katie Holmes as an actress since her Dawson’s Creek days, and it seems that even a stint on Broadway can’t add respectability to her career. Who knows, maybe she’ll do an amazing job and everyone will have to eat their words, but I doubt that.

10Brit and Adnan: Back On?

TMZ is reporting that Britney’s former flame Adnan Ghalib has been spotted inside Brit’s gated community, although Britney’s father is (thank goodness!) trying to put a stop to any hint of a relationship between the two.

Adnan is Britney Poison!!!

Go away and leave her alone, jackass!

15Mary-Kate Olsen: Back on Track

After years of being the laughingstock of blogs and tabloids the world around, Mary-Kate Olsen is back on our radar as a Very Serious Actress.

She rocks the cover of Elle this month, and had the interviewer meet her at trapeze class. So she’s still kind of crazy. But the article basically discusses how well-respected she is in the fashion industry — a lot of very big names have very kind things to say about her.

I’d love nothing more than to see an Olsen twin emerge as a successful adult actress.

Rock on, MK.

5Happy Birthday Lindsay!

Heh, sometimes I forget how much I’m in love with Lindsay Lohan, and then she does something like throw a prom-themed 22nd birthday party, and my heart’s all aflutter for her once more.

Lindsay showed up at her prom-themed fete at Teddy’s on Wednesday night wearing a pink chiffon minidress. Samantha Ronson wore — a tuxedo. Yes. Love it, love it.

DJ AM provided the music, and celeb guests included Joel and Benji Madden, David Spade, Audrina Patridge, Sean Stewart and Evan Ross. Of course, Dina and Ali Lohan were present as well.

Lindsay was spotted drinking Red Bull early in the evening. We’ll find out by tomorrow morning’s photos whether or not that trend lasted …

I don’t have pics yet, but I’m sure they’ll be around tomorrow and I can’t wait.
