Friends character Monica Geller described as ‘slut’ and a ‘trollop’
Monica Geller was played by Courteney Cox in the smash US comedy Friends.
When someone says something horrible about any of the characters from the US smash hit comedy Friends, we feel the same as if someone was having a go at one of our real-life buddies.
Over the years, we have grown so attached to the Friends gang, that we can't believe that anyone would ever dislike them.
Well, despite the show's huge success, former NBC West Coast president Don Ohlmeyerm had serious problems with Monica Geller (who was played by Courteney Cox) when he first saw the pilot and he went as far as labelling her a 'slut' and a 'trollop'.
Yikes - she may be a control freak and have an issue with mess, but we would never use those words to describe Monica!
In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, one of the show's co-creators Marta Kauffman revealed that Don Ohlmeyer disliked Monica's relaxed attitude to sex. In fact, he was so offended by it, that he even imposed his views on test audiences as they watched the pilot episode in 1994.
When audiences watched the pilot episode, they had sheets to fill out and viewers were asked whether Monica was a 'whore', 'slut' or a 'trollop', after she is seen in the episode bringing back a stranger.
What's more, a new book called Inside the Rise and Fall of Must See TV, written by Warren Littlefield, also highlights Don Ohlmeyerm's distaste for Monica.
Mr Littlefield said: "It may seem hard to believe today, but in '94 we were playing in core-conceptual territory that hadn't been explored that much on network TV - young-adult relationships."
Mr Littlefield also highlighted that Don Ohlmeyerm wasn't a fan of Monica from the start and was especially annoyed when she spends the night with 'Paul the wine guy' and then he dumps her in one of the early episodes.
In her interview with Vanity Fair, Marta Kauffman added: "Don said that when Monica slept with Paul the wine guy she got what she deserved."
Well, Don Ohlmeyerm may not have been too keen on Monica, but we all loved her!
