Though they've been around for a long time, it seems celebrity memoirs have become especially popular in recent years. In 2022 alone, we received new titles from U2's Bono, A League Of Their Own's Geena Davis, Harry Potter's Alan Rickman and Friends' Matthew Perry.

Among the newest celebrity memoirs is Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex's tell-all Spare.

In Spare, Prince Harry covered what he believed to be the most hard-hitting aspects of his life: from his mother's death when he was twelve, to his struggles with mental health, to his time in the British Army to his marriage being put under a spotlight.

But the Duke of Sussex also covered some more surprising details of his life, including one very memorable time he stayed at Friends and Shining Vale actress, Courteney Cox's home.

He wrote:

"We went from the home of [my friend] Thomas' girlfriend to the home of Courteney Cox."
"She was a friend of Thomas' girlfriend and had more room. Also, she was traveling, on a job, and didn't mind if we crashed at her place."
"No complaints from me. As a Friends fanatic, the idea of crashing at Monica's was highly appealing. And amusing."
"But then… Courteney turned up. I was very confused. Was her job canceled?"
"I didn't think it was my place to ask. More: Does this mean we have to leave?"

Cox reassured them there was plenty of room for them to stay for a few days.

He reflected that whileat Cox's home, he and a friend saw in the fridge a box of chocolate-covered mushrooms. They each ate several and chased them down with tequila.

When they both began hallucinating, they realized what they had done. Though Cox hasn't read the memoir yet, she has been approached by multiple people, inquiring about that particular moment in the book.

Cox explained, she wasn't sharing the mushrooms.

"He did stay here for a couple of days, probably two or three. He’s a really nice person."
“And I haven’t read the book. I do want to hear it because I’ve heard it’s really entertaining."
"But yes, it’s gotten back to me about it. I’m not saying there were mushrooms! But I definitely wasn’t passing them out.”

Many on Twitter felt that story didn't need to include Cox's name.

Others thought it was shady to spill tea without consulting with the person first.

Whether or not the mushrooms were available without Cox knowing or they were simply something she would rather not see brought up, her fans felt discretion would have been the better part of valor in the Duke of Sussex's memoir.
