Matt LeBlanc Revealed a Hilariously Gross Fact About Rachel’s Meat Trifle on ‘Friends’
Friends gave us plenty of belly-laughs and giggle-worthy moments, and one moment that stands out is the season 6 episode in which Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) attempted to make Thanksgiving dessert and ended up with a meat trifle. As disgustingly silly as that scene was, Matt LeBlanc has just revealed a detail that makes it even more hilariously gross.
Due to cookbook pages that stuck together and resulted in Rachel combining a trifle recipe with a recipe that tells you how to whip up a shepherd’s pie, the dessert that she presented to her guests was definitely questionable. But her dear friends still ate it in order to keep from hurting her feelings.
And while the dish sounds nearly inedible, Matt LeBlanc says that, initially, the IRL food wasn’t that bad. “What we were actually eating was not that,” the star we came to love as Joey Tribbiani explained while sitting down for an interview with The Graham Norton Show. “Storywise, it was just whipped cream and some bananas or something.”
However, he went on to reveal that the crew’s attempt to keep them from eating a nasty surprise was accidentally thwarted. LeBlanc says that when David Schwimmer tried to down the dessert while filming, the actor who played Ross started to laugh so they stopped the take.
“As we were cutting, he kind of spits it back on his plate,” LeBlanc said. “And I’m looking the other way. I didn’t see him spit it back on the plate, so I take his plate and go ‘Give it to me,’ and scrape some on my plate … and then we [start filming again], but now I’m eating it. We finished the take. No one said anything to me!”
That’s right Matt LeBlanc ate food that David Schwimmer had just spit out. Ew! Also lol!
Apparently, he only found out later on, during the show’s wrap party while watching the blooper reel, and his reaction was pretty much exactly what you’d expect. Check it out in the interview below.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
