Addiction, 'Friends' Rumors & Failed Relationships: Here's What To Expect From Matthew Perry's Upcoming Book
Matthew Perry is gearing up to release his upcoming memoir later this year — and it's expected to be a juicy one!
The 52-year-old actor, famous for his role as Chandler Bing on NBC's Friends, recently unveiled via social media the cover for his new book, which is entitled: Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing.
"So much has been written about me in the past. I thought it was time people heard from me," he wrote alongside the post earlier this month. "The highs were high, the lows were low. But I have lived to tell the tale, even though at times it looked like I wouldn't. And it's all in here. I apologize it's not a pop up book."
Since announcing the release of the memoir — which is scheduled to hit shelves on November 1, 2022 — more details have come to light about what the comedian may cover in his pages.
According to Us Weekly, the 17 Again actor has no plans to gloss over anything in his stories — even when it comes to his difficult battle with substance abuse.
"He wants to recount his experiences, both good and bad, to help others and set the record straight over a number of incidents that were either untold until now, taken out of context or in some cases totally twisted the wrong way and needing complete clarification," an insider explained to the outlet.

Plus, he'll discuss what went wrong in a number of his past relationships," the source reportedly continued. "It wasn't always a bed of roses for Matthew on and off the Friends set, and Matt isn't going to sugarcoat the tougher times that he went through with the cast."
"He'll also discuss what it was like at the reunion, both good and bad," the source dished.
Last year, Perry got together with the rest of the gang: David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow, to revisit the set of the beloved sitcom on the Friends: The Reunion.
At the time, Perry sparked concern regarding his well-being after he appeared to be slurring his words and didn't seem to be in the best physical shape during in the reunion special.
In light of speculation going around the rumor mill, Friends executive producer Kevin Bright set the record straight on Perry's health, insisting the actor seemed "stronger and better since the last time I saw him, and excited about going forward," as the outlet reported.
"It's not going to be salacious or mean, just totally honest," the source added of the highly-anticipated memoir.
