Jennifer Aniston Mourns ‘Friends’ Co-Star James Michael After His Tragic Death At 59

James Michael Tyler

‘Friends would not have been the same without you,’ Jennifer Aniston penned in a tribute to the late actor, who died at just age 59 after a cancer battle.

Jennifer Aniston, 52, posted a sweet memorial to her Friends co-star James Michael Tyler just hours after his death. “Friends would not have been the same without you. Thank you for the laughter you brought to the show and to all of our lives. You will be so missed #JamesMichaelTaylor,” she via Instagram wrote on Sunday, Oct. 24, including a heartbreak emoji.

The Emmy winner captioned a hilarious throwback clip from the 2004 Friends finale featuring her character Rachel Green and James, who played Central Perk manager Gunther. In the unforgettable scene, James’ Gunther professes his love to Jennifer’s Rachel after she accepts a job with Ralph Lauren in Paris.

“I don’t know if that changes your plans at all, but I thought you should know,” Gunther tells Rachel, as she politely turns him down. Notably, James appeared in 148 episodes total — more than any other recurring character. He also made a virtual appearance in the highly awaited Friends reunion special last summer.

James died at just age 59 after battling stage four prostate cancer, which he was diagnosed with back in 2018. “Eventually, you know it’s gonna probably get me,” the actor said during a rare TODAY show interview in July. Through tears, he confirmed he could no longer walk, and professed regret over not getting checked for the disease earlier. “I would have gone in earlier and would have been, you know, caught earlier,” he said.

The actors’ family confirmed news of his death via a statement to TMZ. “The world knew him as Gunther (the seventh Friend), from the hit series Friends, but Michael’s loved ones knew him as an actor, musician, cancer-awareness advocate, and loving husband,” they said, going on to remember some of James’ favorite things. ”Michael loved live music, cheering on his Clemson Tigers, and would often find himself in fun and unplanned adventures. If you met him once you made a friend for life.”

Kourtney Kardashian & Travis Barker’s Kids Will Be ‘Included’ In Their Wedding Party

Kourtney Kardashian & Travis Barker’s Kids Will Be ‘Included’ In Their Wedding Party

When Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian tie the knot, the whole family will be there! HL has EXCLUSIVELY learned that their kids are acting like a ‘blended family’ and will be part of their wedding.

One can expect a lot of punk rock to be played at Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker‘s wedding reception. The two dressed up as Sid & Nancy for Halloween, and Kourt, 42, has shown she’s a fan of The Misfits, but perhaps her new favorite song is “We’re A Happy Family” by The Ramones? After all, Travis, 46, and Kourt’s kids have become the best of friends since the blink-182 drummer and Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum started dating. The couple is even planning to have them involved in their upcoming nuptials. “All of Kourtney’s children and both of Travis’s are going to be included in their wedding party,” a source close to the Kardashians tells HollywoodLife, “as this is what they both want.”

“Kourtney and Travis are digging their blended family,” the insider tells HollywoodLife. “Kourtney has developed a bond with Travis’s kids and is starting to treat them like her own.” This love goes both ways, as the source says that Travis’s son, Landon Barker, 18, has “become a role model to Kourtney’s boys,” Mason Disick, 11, and Reign Disick, 6. Travis’s daughter, Alabama Barker, 15, has “already become a big sister figure to Penelope [Disick],” the insider adds.

Travis’s stepdaughter, Atiana de la Hoya, has also become close to Kourtney. She has been included in family vacations, and on Nov. 28, Alabama posted a few photos of her, Kourtney, and Atiana matching in black, puffy jackets. Travis shares Alabama and Landon with ex-wife Shanna Moakler. While he and Shanna were married, Travis bonded with Atiana, Shanna’s daughter from a past relationship with Oscar De La Hoya.

“Kourtney has known Travis’s kids for years because they all grew up in the same neighborhood,” a KarJenner source tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “So, it really wasn’t their relationship which brought Kourtney and his kids closer. It’s the fact that it gradually happened over time, which makes it all that more authentic and organic. As everybody knows, Kourtney is an incredible mother, and she’s so good with children. They always come first in her eyes. Kourtney really didn’t have to try to build a bond with Alabama and Landon. The connection was mutual. She loves them like her own. “

While Kourt and Travis’s kids have bonded, the same can’t be said about her and Travis’s ex. Shanna, 46, has been shady towards Travis and Kourt’s relationship, and so, Travis and Kourt have instituted some rules to keep the peace. “They do not talk about Shanna at all, and neither of them wants to. Kourtney is not the type of person to bad mouth Shanna in front of her children,” the insider says. “Travis has made up a rule for the kids, which is that they are not allowed to discuss anything that goes on between their father and Kourtney with Shanna. They have agreed to this.”

Austen Kroll Talks Possible Relationship With Ciara Miller

Published

Winter House’s Austen Kroll and Ciara Miller Say “Never Say Never” On Romantic Relationship, Plus Austen Says He's "Happy" for Ex Madison LeCroy

Attention Winter House fans, this hot tub hasn’t grown cold yet! Although the two are “currently single,” Southern Charm star Austen Kroll hasn’t ruled out rekindling the flames with his current Winter House co-star, Ciara Miller.

In a new interview with People, Austen stated, “Yes, we are both single.” But he added that the two are still in touch, saying, “You never say never. Craig [Conover] thinks I’m going to end up with her.”

Even more telling is the fact that Ciara has apparently visited Austen in Charleston, SC, after filming for Winter House wrapped.

“It was great to see her and reconnect,” he told the mag, adding that the Summer House star did not film for Southern Charm.

Bravo fans will remember that on the very first night of Winter House, Austen and Ciara instantly had a connection that sent them both running to the hot tub for a steamy rendezvous. As the show has progressed, they have even gone on to casually date. However, it seems the timing just wasn’t quite right as both Austen and Ciara have confirmed they are currently not together.

However, it seems Ciara, like Austen, hasn’t closed the door completely.

Ciara recently spoke to Entertainment Tonight, saying, “I genuinely liked [Austen]. I still kind of have these feelings towards him.” She also added that she “had a lot of fun” on her trip to Charleston, SC.

“He definitely grew on me in the most positive way. There were so many moments where I felt like I could trust him, and feeling safe and secure is something that’s so important to me. That definitely catapulted me really liking him,” she continued.

So, what exactly was the catalyst for the potentially temporary fizzle between Austen and Ciara?

Could it possibly have anything to do with the “love triangle” that played out between Austin, Ciara, and Lindsay Hubbard on Winter House?

Lindsay previously told Page Six, “We’re just friends at the moment. Because we have had some sort of romantic history and because we are such close friends, I think the wires get crossed and lines get blurred a little bit.”

Before becoming entangled with Ciara and Lindsay, Austen was in a nearly three-year relationship with a fellow Southern Charm star, Madison LeCroy, who announced her engagement to her boyfriend, Brett Randle, after six months of dating. Austen seems to have moved on and holds no ill-will towards his ex as he expressed nothing but the best for the two.

“I’m happy for her. She has a son that she has to think about. She wants a family and I think she’s accomplished that, or trying to,” he said. “Good luck to them.”
