Busy Philipps: ”I’ve Never Liked the Name Cougar Town”
Are you confused about whether or not ABC’s Cougar Town is still called Cougar Town? So is cast member Busy Philipps.
“I have no idea!” exclaims Philipps when we asked her if the show still goes under its old name. “That’s a Courtney [Cox] question.”
What she does know is that the show’s creator, Bill Lawrence, feels very strongly about the title. “I think he really wants to change the title of the show, so I think it probably is going to happen.”
To Philipps, it doesn’t matter what her show is called, as long as she can return to work with her friends. “I’ve never liked the name Cougar Town,” she tells us on the red carpet at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards. “But I don’t care.”
Speaking of friends, the Dawson’s Creek alum tells us fans shouldn't be holding out for a DC reunion anytime soon. “I guess it would be interesting to get everyone back together,” says Philipps, who is the godmother of Michelle Williams's daughter, Matilda. “Michelle and Katie [Holmes] and I had a bit of a reunion at a party at a couple of months ago. I’ve seen them all. Just not at the same time in the same place.”
But for now, getting everyone in the same room seems like the impossible dream. “I don’t know if that’s a possibility anymore,” she says. “I don’t think people’s schedules would lend themselves to it.”
