Don't we all wish?
However, the sexual harassment lawsuit brought by the writer's assistant who worked for Friends for four months proceeds and is getting some attention from AP.
But if the tradition of the raucous, freewheeling "writers room" is the Hollywood status quo, Amaani Lyle is fighting it. The 31-year-old former writer's assistant for "Friends" has filed a lawsuit that has landed before the California Supreme Court.
Lyle alleges the raw sexual remarks that peppered writers' work sessions and conversations added up to harassment, even though they weren't aimed directly at her or other women in the room.
Her suit, which also alleges demeaning remarks were made about blacks and constitute racial harassment, names "Friends" producers Warner Bros. Television Productions and Bright Kauffman Crane Productions, as well as writers Adam Chase, Greg Malins and Andrew Reich.
Lyle worked for four months in 1999 before she was told she was a poor typist and fired. But Lyle, who is black, claims she was let go after pressing for black characters on the sexually charged NBC comedy about six pals in New York....
So, if I were fired for suggesting they introduce a character named Ozmodiar, I could sue too?
Now, here's the funniest part of the article:
"It's always very hard to describe the process of what writing a comedy series is really about," ["Murphy Brown" creator Diane English] said. "It involves so critically the ability to completely be open and let yourself go. It's the only way the really truly funny stuff is born."
For the even funnier bits, see the excerpts from the suit:
...74. [Three of the writers] regularly discussed making the character Joey a serial rapist...
...77. [Three of the writers used the terms] "dick," "schlong," and "cock."
...83. I can recall sitting around waiting to go home while writers were sitting around pretending to masturbate and continually talking about schlongs.
UPDATE: OK, so the title of this post is a bit mean. I mean, I don't have any pictures of Jennifer Aniston naked. However, here are some interesting Jennifer Aniston pics. Note that some of these sites are questionable, might have popups or worse, etc.:

And, my favorite so far:

A personal note to Jennifer: I'm sorry to hear about your breakup with Brad Pitt. Over time I hope you will recover from this unfortunate incident. Remember, there are many bloggers out here that care.
UPDATE 2: Man, that cherry pic is something else. Here are more Jennifer Aniston links.
UPDATE 4: For the ladies: Jennifer Aniston hair style: Sedu or T3 Tourmaline?
