Friends star Matt LeBlanc’s WILD 90s Logies night revealed – and it was the same year as A Current Affair host Tracy Grimshaw’s NAKED mishap

The 1998 TV Week Logie Awards is shaping up to be one of the wildest nights in Australian television industry history. 

While the infamous tale of Tracy Grimshaw’s naked mishap has been widely reported, Seven’s The Morning Show host Larry Emdur has revealed a lesser-known story from the same night. 

Speaking to News.com.au, Larry claimed he and Friends star Matt LeBlanc became his drinking buddy after he spotted the sitcom superstar looking bored and out of place.

‘You look bored as sh*t, mate… Want a Sambuca?’ Emdur recalled of his first words to LeBlanc, claiming he responded with: ‘Hell, yeah. Are you Italian?’

The former host of The Price Is Right then joked that he kept telling LeBlanc how much his wife loved his work, and was surprised to wake up with a signed photo from LeBlanc in his hotel room.   

‘I thought it was really sweet he remembered – because I didn’t remember a thing,’ he said.

That particular year, a naked Tracy Grimshaw, then host of Today, inadvertently locked herself out of her hotel room after drinking tequila shots with James Packer. 

In 2018, the A Current Affair host finally came clean about what really happened during her infamous nude run.

‘I got drunk because that’s what everyone does at the Logies. And I raced back to my room at three o’clock in the morning thinking the girls from hair and make-up were about to walk in to get me ready to do the Today show,’ she told 2DAY FM.

‘I pulled the dress off, ripped the jewellery off and raced in to have a shower before they arrived. I mistook the bathroom door for the front door. Suddenly I was naked out in the hallway,’ she said. 

This year’s 62nd TV Week Logie Awards, which was scheduled for June 28, was cancelled in April due to the outbreak of coronavirus. 

Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter revealed in November that a Friends reunion special was indeed happening at HBO Max for 2020.

Each of the show’s main stars – Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer – were in talks to return, with series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman.

The deals were finalized and the reunion special was officially announced in late February, confirming the cast will reunite for an, ‘untitled unscripted special’. 

Fans rejoice! Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter revealed in November that a Friends reunion special was indeed happening at HBO Max for 2020
