Oh, I know, I know, I shouldn't have read it and I live in the states! But, you know, I posted it up for two reasons:
1. For people that want a detailed Spoiler description. 2. To check our sources. You never know on the net if things are accurate or not. If everything that is written up happens on the show, then cool, this guy really knows and was really there. If not, then, oh well, we know better not to list this person as a spoiler reference. However, most of what people post is true.
Oh...okay, I'm going to post this link up for you all that looove spoilers. Now remember: If you hate spoilers do not look at this link! It is very detailed. Apparently, this is someone that saw the taping of the show.
Annnd...I feel soooo alone, not being able to talk to anybody about this! Oh well, you all will soon see it, right? Spoiler people, you can write in here and tell me what you think.
Thanks for posting this on here too. And, yes, friends will be back for the 9th season. (See versions of this story in our NY Times section. The news articles over there have the NBC Release statement included in it.)
And, it's wayyy cool, right? And thanks for sharing.
People Magazine, is owned by Time-Warner. (As in Warner Brothers). I looked at Time Magazine online, but, they didn't print the comments made about the "Star" Magazine article when I was doing a massive sweep of finding information.
So, judging from what was printed on-line, Rachel lives and will continue being our "friend".
Hey! I found another one: From People.com. Here's what it says:

'Friends' Stay Friendly -- And Rich
STEPHEN M. SILVERMAN
...In a separate development, reps for the show denied to the Associated Press a story in Monday's edition of the supermarket tabloid The Star that said writers were working on a final episode that has Jennifer Aniston's character, Rachel, dying in childbirth. "When I asked about the story line, everyone looked at me like I was crazy," said Phil Gonzalez, a spokesman for the show's producers. "It's definitely not true."
(Edited by Breezy. The first part of this story is pasted in the "9th Season" thread.)
Usually, that's why a lot of us ignore these magazines. Popular celebs are the main focus of them because people are always interested in celebs, you know?
Anyway, wait for NBC to release their promos for the final episode. They are the source of information, especially about their programming. But, it is flattering (in a twisted way) because friends is very popular, so, doing "stories" (gossip) about them just shows that they realize who the hot celebs are, right?
This is a "speculation" piece. Or, in another words, "gossip". Anyway, look closely at the upper, left hand side of the picture of Jenn. That is a picture of the actual tabloid. And it is very misleading because your first thoughts are that Jenn dies. When you read the article, you re-look at the cover and think that you're looking at the "final" episode. But, that picture is from 814 (look at our thread in this section, the pictures from that episode are posted in it).
Here's the article itself (from this website): JENNIFER ANISTON DIES IN BABY TRAGEDY -- DETAILS OF FRIENDS FINAL SHOW
FRIENDS, the most popular sitcom on television is getting ready to end with a stunning dramatic blockbuster - pregnant Rachel, played by Jennifer Aniston, will die while giving birth to her love child!
"There's never been a heartrending Friends episode like this before," a show insider tells Star. "It will be the most shocking scene ever played out on TV."
But the death of Rachel is just one of three top-secret, sensational endings being penned by the show’s writers, Star has learned.
For a sneak peek at all three scenarios, plus the inside track on whether the show and all of its stars will be back for a ninth season, be sure to buy the latest Star on sale at newsstands this week.
Anyway, it's flattering (in a way) that they put Jenn on the cover. They hope to sell lots of papers because she is soooo popular. However, sometimes their news is a bit on the "mean" side. So this story is something I knew about but didn't pay that much attention to. I'd just wait until NBC posts their promos...they're more of a reliable source, don't you think?
Oh, you know me, I'm moving this thread so it's in some kind of "order", well, anyway, such a "sad" excuse to post a picture of that "superstar mystery guest", soooo, "like a God", you know. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Heyyyy! Oh, oh, oh.....Do more, do more, do more...pictures! Lots and lots of pictures of this episode! I looove this episode! I think I was really mesmorized by the surprise mystery guest...so, please....please....pleeeease do more pictures! You can't have enough of the surprise guest, you know?
