i chatted with lisa kudrow!

oh happy day! i love life’s little unexpected pleasures! so i was at my desk today wrapping up the day job when i got an email from someone at HBO letting me know that lisa kudrow was doing an online chat over at the gold derby (a cool section of latimes.com) well i flew over there and quickly registered as popbytes (of course) and when i entered the room lisa immediately recognized me!! (in case you didn’t know i was quite zealous in my love for this now cancelled show – check out valeriecherish.com – she really was my favorite person of 2005)

below is a transcript of the chat edited to my portions – people were asking her a lot about friends but of course i wanted to chat about my beloved the comeback which makes its DVD debut in august! plus i was able to get confirmation from ms. kudrow herself that she did indeed write me that note a few months back! (thanks again to J for hooking me up)

even better than all that – there is talk that lisa could get nominated for an emmy for her amazing work on the comeback! that would be so be the icing on the cupcake for me – she so deserves it! make sure to check out this great article over at the gold derby about the whole possible emmy situation and which three episodes HBO is considering to submit to showcase her amazing comedic talents!

i agree with author tom o’neil that the episode Valerie Does Another Classic Leno should be the one picked – hop on over and see what other episodes are being considered! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!

POPBYTES has entered the room.
