When Lisa and Ellen played the Lisa Blanking Kudrow game, the blonde comedian had to answer questions about herself by filling in the blank.

One read, “I would do anything Blank asked of me.”

The Vassar College graduate – who wore a cream blouse and black trousers – replied: “Courteney Cox. That’s easy.’

“More than your child?” Ellen snapped back. Then Kudrow said, ‘You know, if he asks me something inappropriate, I have to say no.’

“I know, wouldn’t that be fun?” Lisa said and Ellen then shared, “It sure would. That was such an awesome show. Do you think you’ll do another one?’

Kudrow said: “We would like to. We should. And guess what, I think next year will be nine years since the second, that’s been nine years since the first.’

DeGeneres then asked to be on the series because “I won’t have anything to do” now that her talk show is ending.

Kudrow also spoke to Ellen about a sequel to Romy And Michele High School Reunion, which she agreed to do.

In mid-March, Lisa said the revisit would be “really fun.”

The 58-year-old actress starred opposite Mira Sorvino in the comedy Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion as a high school failing couple who fake their careers to impress old classmates at a ten-year reunion, and Lisa finds the possibility of a sequel exciting.

She said: “Tell Disney you want a sequel. [Producer] Robin Schiff will find out. She has ideas that are brewing. Yes I would. [like to do it] I think it would be really fun!’

The comedy star – who was at the height of his fame at the time of the original film’s release with the role of Phoebe Buffay in Friends – also joked it would be interesting to see what the quirky characters would look like in their 50s.

Speaking to ‘Entertainment Tonight’, she added: ‘And then a bit of ‘How are you our age?!’
