“Extra’s” Tanika Ray caught up with Courteney Cox today, who opened up about the in-flight emergency she experienced on the way to Jennifer Aniston’s 50th birthday party, and her new Facebook Watch docu-series “9 Months with Courteney Cox.”
Courteney, Jen and some friends were flying from L.A. to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for Aniston’s birthday party when they heard a loud bang.
Cox revealed, “I’m not afraid of flying at all... my dad was a pilot… but I was really scared, because when we were taking off, we heard this really loud bang and I was like, ‘Oh, that sounds like we should probably check that tire.’”
She continued, “There was no tire at all, there was no wheel. Luckily, there are two wheels on each side and two in the front. I have to say, we were in the air for four hours, burning off fuel and just thought of what it is going to be like when we land… it was a really smooth landing.”
Courteney added, “I sent a little text to Coco, ‘I love you,’ I didn’t say why, and to Johnny [McDaid]… I told him everything that was going on and I FaceTimed him after.”
Cox also revealed what she got Jen for her big birthday. “A bunch of us got her a pottery wheel and lessons, even though she’s a great artist, and a table, a big beautiful antique table.”
As for her series, “9 Months with Courteney Cox,” the star explained, “It is a look at life before birth. We take ten couples, we follow their journey into having a child… it’s such a perfect place to be on Facebook, because you can interact and ask questions, and learn and share your own experience.”
Why did she choose pregnancy as the subject matter? “I love real subject matters… this is not a sensationalized show at all, it’s just raw.”
“9 Months with Courteney Cox,” airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays on Facebook Watch.
