Phoebe Buffay From 'Friends' Was Supposed To Have A Very Different

Phoebe Buffay From 'Friends' Was Supposed To Have A Very Different Ending

I think everyone's lives changed for the better now that Friends is on Netflix! Super easy access to Friends 24/7? I'll take it. After watching all 10 seasons over and over again, I think my favorite "friend" has changed! I used to be all about Chandler but now my favorite is Phoebe! She was quirky, goofy and seemed to be the only one with friends outside of the group! Her relationship with Mike was also very adorable and sweet. I still tear up thinking about the wedding episode! But even though they were the perfect couple, did you know that they weren't supposed to end up together? The writers and producers had very different plans for who Phoebe would end up with! 

When people ask if I have friends, I just say, "Yeah, sure I do." And then I just start talking about Ross, Chandler, Monica, Rachel, Phoebe and Joey. 


There was something so comforting about watching these six people navigate life in the coolest city in the world! 

Also, Monica's apartment was to die for. I'm still so jealous of it! 

Everyone has a favorite character or a favorite couple from the show! Mine was definitely Phoebe and Mike! 

Everybody always says they root for Ross and Rachel but their relationship always had drama. It was toxic! The only other acceptable answer for best couple is Monica/Chandler!

Even though they were the perfect couple (take that, Ross and Rachel!), they weren't actually supposed to end up together! 

Phoebe and Mike were soulmates. They had a beautiful wedding but that wedding was never supposed to take place because Phoebe wasn't meant to end up with Mike!

The writers and producers initially meant for Phoebe to end up with David, the scientist!

Remember David? They dated until David had to leave her to go to Minsk for research. 

He left Minsk and tried to win Phoebe back. He even proposed to her! 

Hank Azaria, who played David, just revealed why the writers changed their minds last minute and had Phoebe marry Mike instead!

Hank said that the plan was always to bring David back in the end! 

But apparently, everyone just fell in love with Paul Rudd aka Mike that they changed Phoebe's storyline!

I mean, how could you not? PAUL RUDD IS THE BEST. 

Also, it's clear that Mike is Phoebe's lobster! 

Hank said that it stung when he realized Phoebe wouldn't end up with David. 

He said that there's a part of him that feels like he's David in real life so he felt like the break up actually happened to him! 

But he said that Mike is most deserving of Phoebe's love if David can't be with her! 

Mike is lucky to be Mr. Princess Consuela Banana Hammock and she's lucky to be Mrs. Crap Bag!

COMMENTand tell us if you like Phoebe/Mike or Phoebe/David more!

Nail Art That Deserves A Blue Ribbon

Nail Art That Deserves A Blue Ribbon

Blue is the unofficial color of summer. Blue skies, clear water and summer blueberries are just some of the luscious greatness that the season provides. Get into the spirit with bright, bold nails in every shade of blue. Paint 'em up now before autumn kicks in and your blue nails are as outdated as ombré hair. 

1. Simple turquoise–bonus points if you match it to a ring. 

2. Up the glamour factor with glitter. 

3. Add in one sparkling statement nail. 

4. Or add a pattern without the glitter.

5. Get even fancier with ombré nails. 

6. Or do your ombré this way for a twist. 

7. There is no rule that you have to keep them in order. 

8. Go glitter ombré for a mermaid-like look.

9. Stripes are a classic bit of nail art that almost anyone can do. 

10. Pixelate your mani with a few digital looking stripes.

11. Water-inspired nails are a perfect summer look. 

12. Go full beach-themed for a vacation manicure. 

13. Taking a cruise? Draw up a lifebuoy in blue and red. 

14. Blue provides a perfect backdrop to daisy themed nails.

15. But you can always keep it simple with chevrons. 

16. Then again you could go crazy with this glam pattern.

17. Or make detailed roses. 

18. Royal blue and silver give you a regal looking manicure. 

19. Turquoise is a perfect comic companion. 

23 Pictures That Look Fake Because They Are So Weird

23 Pictures That Look Fake Because They Are So Weird

Sometimes when you see a picture online you just know it is Photoshopped. Sometimes they are super obvious and poorly done, while others are pretty good fakes. Then there are photos that only look fake. Here are 23 of the best non-Photoshopped, fake-looking pictures you just have to see. 

1. Elevators To Hell

This elevator doesn't reside in Hell, it is actually in Stockholm, Sweden as part of a project to make their underground system an art gallery. Each of the 90 stations are decorated with a theme. It would be easy to identify your stop but I am not sure that I'd ever want to get off at this one... 

2. Largest Horned Steer (Ever) 

Those horns don't look real but they are. With a 37.5-inch circumference, they are the largest horns ever recorded and they belong to Lurch, an African watusi steer. Unfortunately Lurch passed away in 2010, due to cancer at the base of one of his horns. 

3. Melted Wood

These footprints were worn into the ground by a monk who prays in the exact same spot every day, multiple times a day, for over 20 years. 

4. Split Road

This actually happened in Japan after an earthquake. Apparently it occurred because the road was built one lane at a time, creating a natural rift between the two lanes. 

5. Flamingos In The Shape Of A Flamingo

Unless National Geographic is trolling us, this enormous group of flamingos in the Gulf of Mexico got together to create the most meta thing ever. 

6. Indoor Cloud

Fake as this might look, it is actually the work of artist Berndnaut Smilde who measures the temperature and humidity in a room in order to create clouds indoors. You can find more of his work here. 

7. Terrifying Clouds

Speaking of clouds, these are not from an end-of-the-world Hollywood movie. They are real, terrifying asperitas (formerly asperatus) clouds in Iowa. 

8. Doritos Mountain

This mountain is, sadly, not made of Doritos. It is actually just the way the light is pouring in during sunrise in Glacier National Park, Montana. 

9. Pink River

This is not an advertisement for Pepto Bismol. It is Lake Retba in Senegal, and is actually very pink. This is because the high salt concentration in the water (up to 40%) creates a buildup of Dunaliella salina, a salt-loving bacteria. Salt is harvested from this lake and used or sold by the locals.

10. Jewel Corn

This corn isn't painted, or made of glass for some art project. It is real, edible corn and is a hybrid of several varieties. 

11. Ledge Hanging Chain 

This guy is probably just hanging from a jungle gym, right? Wrong. This is "Mustang Wanted"—a daredevil who constantly climbs to the tallest heights and hangs off them with his fingertips like some sort of mad man. Apparently there are at least two people who trust his finger strength enough to hang over the edge of Trump Palace. This picture makes me squeamish but if you want to see more of this madman, go here. 

12. Black, White and Red

This looks like some artsy Photoshopping, but it is actually real. This photo is of a hibiscus flower that bloomed after volcanic ash covered the landscape in Indonesia. 

13. Namib Desert 

This is not a view of Hell's landscape, but the dry riverbed of the Sossusvlei river. It is not known why the dunes are created in this formation, despite geologists researching the area for decades. 

14. Life-Sized Geode

There is no way there is a cave of crystals, right? Wrong. The Cave of Crystals is deep in the Naica mountains in Mexico. The crystals zigzag for half a mile underground. 

15. Grid Waves 

Either the grids on maps are real, or this photo is fake. Or, option three, this is an example of cross sea waves in the Isle of Rhé that can be explained by this simple equation. 

Okay. Maybe not so simple. 

16. Google Maps Location Names Are Real!

Well, this one is at least. The island of Al Futaisi is owned by Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamadan Al Nahyan—a billionaire member of Abu Dhabi's ruling family. The name is written two miles wide and half a mile tall, making it clearly visible from space. 

But as quickly as it appeared, it was removed. Rumors are that the rest of the royal family didn't think it fit into "Abu Dhabi 2030," a plan to revitalize the area by 2030, and so the project was erased. 

17. Lego City 

This isn't actually an image from LEGOLAND or a shot of a child's play set. It is the San Buenaventura complex in Ixtapaluca, Mexico City. 

18. Half And Half Cat 

This cat is actually completely two-toned on her face. Born in 2009, Venus is likely a Chimera cat which means she has the DNA of two separate cats in one adorable body.

19. Shark-ception

A group of scientists were trying to catch fish they had previously tagged to obtain their valuable information when this happened. The three-foot dogfish was tempted by the bait while this sand tiger shark was tempted by the fish. According to the scientists, the shark swallowed the other fish in one enormous bite. 

20. Grand Prismatic Springs

This looks like a rainbow paint job but is, in fact, the Grand Prismatic Springs in Yellowstone National Park. The colors are all thanks to various bacteria; they are divided into zones based on temperature. 

21. A Fish With Human Teeth

Oh how I wish this weren't real. This is the sheepshead fish and it does indeed have very human-like teeth. You can eat this fish—many people do—but I plan to stay far, far away from them. 

22. Floating Monster

This is not the Loch Ness Monster or any other demon fish. It is sadly just the carcass of a deceased whale floating to shore.  

23. A Man With A Hole In His Head

This is Billy Owen, and yes, he can shove his hand through his (empty) eye socket from his mouth. He suffered a rare form of cancer that took half his face and his eye. Surgeons removed most of his nasal cavity and the plate covering the roof of his mouth. When he removes the dental plate, he can poke his hand from mouth to eye. Now he makes his living acting as a zombie and working in places like the former Goretorium and the Venice Beach Freakshow.
