Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow are no longer friends, at least not on screen during an upcoming episode of ABC’s ‘Cougar Town’ featuring a guest appearance by Kudrow, according to the Ausiello Files.

Kudrow plays a “horrible, horrible person” on the Jan. 6 episode — a deliberate decision made by the two actresses, neither of which wanted to reunite as ‘Friends’ on the new series.

“The [sight] of them playing people who dislike each other intensely was very funny for me to watch,” said ‘Cougar Town’s executive producer, Bill Lawrence.

‘Cougar Town’ recently took an unscheduled break from shooting while Cox attended to a “family matter” but picked back up Nov. 30 after the Thanksgiving holiday.
