Charlie Wheeler was a memorable ”Friends” ex

DATED Ross and Joey

SEASONS 9 and 10

DATING TYPE The Fickle Flirt

THE LOVE STORY Ross is thrilled when the brilliant new professor at his school turns out to be smokin’ hot Charlie, but he’s devastated when Joey nabs her first. She ultimately realizes Ross is a better intellectual match for her, but just as their relationship is blossoming, she tosses it aside by passionately kissing her Nobel-prizewinning ex (Greg Kinnear) in front of Ross.

FUN FACT The former ”Talk Soup” host recently published a book of pop-culture essays called ”Swerve: Reckless Observations of a Postmodern Girl.”

POST-”FRIENDS” She has a sitcom in the works that will be produced by Friend Lisa Kudrow.
