Lisa Kudrow is notoriously private about her personal life and rarely posts on social media. However, the Friends star made sure to tell her fans how proud she was of her talented cousin, following the recent release of her new book, Love Sold Separately, in August. 

Taking to Instagram, the Phoebe Buffay actress shared a photo of her cousin Ellen Meister's novel, and wrote in the caption: "This is such a fun breezy read. And @ellenmeister is my cousin! Woohoo."

The pair were both at their respective homes as they chatted via a video link, and opened up about the much-anticipated Friends reunion show, which has been postponed because of the ongoing pandemic.

Jennifer told her co-star that she can't wait for it to happen, saying: "I cannot wait. It's also strange to think it would have been shot and already aired and it would be a little speck in our memory."

Lisa also admitted that they still don't know when the reunion will take place, teasing: "What we do know, we can't say. I think we're meant to be surprised by some things."

Most recently, Lisa joined Jennifer and Courteney Cox for a mini reunion at the Emmys in September, where they met up at the Rachel Green star's house after she returned home from co-hosting the socially-distanced show with Jimmy Kimmel at the Staples Center. 

The mother-of-one has been staying at her home in Beverly Hills over the past few months with her son Julian and husband Michael Stern.

Fans can't wait for the much-anticipated Friends reunion show

At the beginning of the lockdown, the family temporarily separated as Michael stayed at their second property in Palm Springs, which was having work done to it.

Lisa opened up about her family's situation during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel in May. When asked about her quarantine situation, the actress explained that she was with her husband "sometimes" and joked that it was the "best way for a marriage to work."

The star said: "We were all together in the desert because we have a house there. And then there was a lockdown so we just stayed put. But that house needed work. And then what happened was, it got to be hotter, as it does in the Palm Springs area, so it was too hot for me."
