It’s been 10 years since the show ended, and SO many TV couples have since tried to be like the Ross and Rachel of our generation—Ted and Robin, Jim and Pam, even Mindy and Danny have attempted—but few actually achieve such an honor. It’s a lot to live up to Friends, ya know?!
But still, that doesn’t stop today’s TV stars from comparing themselves to everyone’s Friends faves! Here’s three celebs telling OKMagazine.com EXCLUSIVELY how and why their on-screen relationship is basically identical to Ross and Rachel. Do you agree?
It all started back in December when Jax Taylor of Vanderpump Rules compared the dynamics of the Bravo show’s cast to the the six main Friends. Sure, his is a reality show, but it still works! “We’re like the show Friends,” he said. “I’m Ross. Stassi’s Rachel. But I’m also Joey because I’m kind of dumb, but with the Ross sense of humor.” Watch the full video HERE.
Then there was Emily Osment who in June told us that the love triangle on her ABC Family show, Young & Hungry, is identical to the relationships on Friends. She said, “Josh and Gabi’s relationship is a love triangle where you know the two characters that belong together but you don’t know if they’re ever going to get together, so it’s the anticipation of seeing two characters you love. Every episode is reaching that point, but we’re unsure of when that may happen. Hopefully if we get a few more seasons we can drag it out for a wile, that would be great. We need a Ross and Rachel love story. (laughs). I love Friends.” Read Emily’s full interview HERE.
And lastly, Holland Roden revealed how she wants Teen Wolf to end and yet again, the Friends guys were brought up. “It would be nice to have closure on the Stiles and Lydia thing. Are they friends, are they more than friends? I’m a fan of Friends, and I loved the Ross and Rachel connection and how they ended that.” Read Holland’s full interview HERE.
