USA TV personality Ross Mathews has named and shamed Friends stars Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry for being "rude" in his new book.
Ross, 40, who stars as a judge in RuPaul's Drag Race, recalls the time the Friends stars were less than friendly to him on a red carpet.
His new book called Name Drop is a collection of tales of his experiences with Hollywood celebrities since he rose to fame as 'Ross the Intern' on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Looking back, Ross details the time he met the iconic pair while covering the red carpet for a 2002 party celebrating The Tonight Show's 75th birthday.
Some of the Friends stars arrived and Ross writes how he couldn't help but be super excited when Matthew, who played Chandler Bing, and Matt, who played Joey Tribbiani, approached him.

Ross wrote that he squealed to them: "It is so good to meet you! I’m Ross!"
He writes that Matt quickly replied, "No you're not, he's over there," before motioning to David Schwimmer, who played Ross Gellar.
Jokingly rolling his eyes, Ross says he replied: "Oh yeah, the other Ross."
Ross continued in his book that the comment "didn't go over well", he wrote: "Immediately the mood changed.
"Matthew Perry began staring into the camera blankly as Matt LeBlanc asked, 'How did you get this gig?'"

Ross said he nervously answered, "I slept my way to the top" while Perry continued to deadpan towards the camera.
The awkward interview was filmed and shows the cringe conversation taking place in full, as Matt is then recorded pointing at Ross and mocking him.
Ross writes: "Matt LeBlanc pointed to me, then looked into the camera, and said, 'Jay, are you kidding? Are you kidding, Jay?'
"Matthew Perry joined in, addressing the camera and asking, 'What’s the call here, Jay?'"

But Ross story of the encounter doesn't stop there as he reveals that 15 years later he was on a red carpet covering the SAG Awards for E! and Matt LeBlanc approached him.
Ross recalls how the 52-year-old A-lister approached him and said: "I don’t know if you even remember this, but years ago you interviewed me on a red carpet and I was really rude to you.
"It’s bugged me ever since and I’ve always wanted to apologise to you. It wasn’t cool of me to do that to you. I’m sorry.'"
Ross claims Matthew Perry "has not apologised".
