Meeting Courteney Cox was surreal. After all, a good chunk of my life was dedicated to watching Friends every single Thursday. And meeting her on the set of her current show, Cougar Town, was only fitting considering I myself married a younger man (listen, he’s 11 months younger and I’m working on little sleep from breast-feeding twins, so just laugh at that joke… kidding… kind of…). Venturing up to LA with my breast pump by my side (and pumping in the studio parking lot at one point), I not only got to meet the entire cast, but was even served red wine – a trademark of this hilarious show. From whether the former Monica Geller lets real life daughter Coco, age 6, watch her sometimes racy show to how it’s been helping her while she endures a separation with David Arquette, who is currently in rehab, Breezy Mama got the scoop.
Do you let your daughter watch the show?
[Pauses]… If I say yes, am I a bad mom?
I do but I tell her to close her eyes when it’s inappropriate and she does. She really thinks Dan Byrd [my son on the show] is her brother. This is her family… she’s supposed to be down here any minute.
Has this been a good escape for you with all that’s going on personally?
