SOMEBODY STOP DAVID ARQUETTE! Doesn’t that man have any friends? Or family? Or a publicist? We are seriously thinking about stepping in ourselves (for a low, low fee!) to stop him from doing idiotic things like going back on Howard Stern and saying he cried after having sex while separated from wife Courteney Cox Arquette. Said David, “After the first girl I slept with … a few days later … I was, like, crying…It was the end of all the intimacy I shared with my wife. It was like a new thing. It was like … putting that away.” Strangely, boning a fist-fighting waitress couldn’t compare with “that emotional love that I always had with Court” following their 11 years of marriage. Hard to wrap your mind around, we know.
When Stern asked if Arquette was seeing other women, David coyly admitted that,”ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s some stuff happening,” then explained how he hooked up with some random Australian woman, despite being “still f***ing in love with my wife.” The whole episode seems likeÃ‚Â one giant viral anti-drug campaign, as far as we’re concerned. Anti-drug or anti-marrying David Arquette. Either way, we have to teach our children early.
When asked if Courteney was sexing up her Cougar Town costar Brian Van Holt, Arquette got all vague and described Van Holt as “a cool guy … Any guy would be blessed to be with her. … I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have any hard feelings for anyone. This is life and we are just going through it publicly.” It’s only public because you keep going crazy and talking about it on the radio, David! Seriously, if someone had told us last month that we were going to have a David Arquette-induced stroke, we would have said, “Oh, I knew it.”
The ink has barely dried on David Arquette’s thousands of apology letters and already the cougar community is roaring to claim wife Courteney as their queen. Following the news of their separation, Courteney Cox Arquette was offered a $1 million contract to represent CougarLife.com, a dating site for older lady “cougars” looking for younger male “cubs” and oh god, is that Aunt Karen on here?! Considering the couple is not technically divorced yet, we doubt Courteney will go for it. And guys, didn’t she just say she didn’t want to be anybody’s mother? We know this isn’t exactly the same, but we’re sure Freud would say we’re close.
The contract, should she sign it, would require Courteney to voice 12 radio ads, appear in 4 TV ads, and make at least 30 public appearance over the course of the year. Dang, that’s a lot of work! We though cougaring was all about squeezing into leopard skin dresses and chugging mai tais. Who knew? We say go for it, Courteney. The worst that could happen is that you’ll make a million dollars. Besides that, you’ll be helping people like your friend whose name rhymes with Shmennifer Shmaniston find hot young studs to be dumped by.
That’s a trick question! They are both as classy as fine wine served out of a box, or a string quartet conducted by Coco. Following an excruciatingly personal interview with Howard Stern this morning about his separation from wife Courteney Cox Arquette, David Arquette’s one-night stand Jasmine Waltz (well, okay, maybe two nights) is helping him down the slippery slope to public self-destruction with her long list of Hollywood exes. In addition to the apologetic Arquette, Waltz has dated, in ascending order of lameness, Chris Pine, Jess McCartney, Rod Stewart’s son Sean, and Ryan Seacrest. Normally we’d give a pass to anyone whose had their sheets ruined by Seacrest’s spray-tan sweat, but our allegiance to Monica…um, we mean Courteney runs too deep.
Not only has she taken most of the B-List for a test-drive, but reportedly Waltz also punched Lindsay Lohan this summer while working at nightclub Voyeur. Just to be clear: Waltz was on the clock when she may or may not have decked LiLo, which she denies happened. “All I have to say is that disturbed little train wreck is delusional,”, Jasmine claimed at the time, as only another train wreck can. So is Waltz a villain, or just a celebrity gold digger that dug on the wrong man? Did David Arquette really not know all of this was going to blow up in his face? So many questions remain, though the question “Why exactly did Courteney leave?” seems pretty much been answered.
Whew. We just got through listening to Howard Stern‘s interview with David Arquette, and once again the King of All Media has scored a major scoop. We took notes during the entire thing and will try to get down all major points below. The biggest thing we took away from David and Howard’s candid chat is that he still loves and cares for Courteney Cox, and they are definitely trying to work things out as mature adults. David was refreshing and honest, which is something most celebrities (and their PR people) balk at. He even admitted to have quit drinking a few weeks ago but owned up to having a drink last night. We’d gulp down some booze too, if our 11 year marriage was the topic of everyone’s convos.
Without further ado, the deets from our notes:
- Courteney initiated the separation. Says David, “On our eleven year anniversary Courteney gave me a motorcycle. She said to me, ‘I don’t want to be your mother anymore.’ She doesn’t want to tell me ‘don’t do that and don’t do this.’ She doesn’t want to nag me anymore. I respect that with all my heart.”
- The couple is currently living in separate houses, and David is in therapy. “I’m trying to grow up, trying to be my true self, to figure out my true self and world, as is she.”
- The separation started a while ago, and if it were up to David the couple would be married and together right now. Even though, David says, “she has her own issues – tries to take one everyone’s problems, be a mother to everyone.” Hm, like Jennifer Aniston perhaps?
- David did, indeed, have sex with another woman during the separation. While he did not name Jasmine Waltz specifically, he seemed to be insinuate she was his one conquest. He says, “I don’t have a girlfriend. I had sex with a girl once. Okay maybe twice.”
- David confronted Courteney on her rumored affair with her co-star. She denied it. “I truly don’t think she every had an affair with Brian Van Holt,” he says. “I do believe her on that level. On an emotional level, I think she may have seen a guy who talks and bonded with him, yes.”
- They told their 6-year-old daughter Coco about their split during a beach picnic. “We went to the beach and had a picnic and explained to her, ‘we’re grown-ups and a lot of times grown-ups need to figure out their lives.’”
- David and Courteney’s sex life started to die while they figured things out; they haven’t had sex for four months. Still, he said of their physical relationship: “My sex with Courteney is methodical…but so full of love.”
- David wants Courteney back. He says, “In my defense I didn’t go out and f*ck everything in the f*cking world. It’s one girl, and all the best for her. I’m never going to do anything with her again. I’ve been begging Courteney to get back with me. and she’s conflicted too.”
Though David is “free to see other people,” he seems truly invested in making the marriage work and says of his wife, “We’re best friends. She’s the greatest woman I’ve ever met.” Awww. He’s always seemed a little odd to us, but his openness and honestly with Howard totally won us over. Make it work with him, Court!
This news really came out of nowhere for us. David Arquette and Courteney Cox have separated after eleven seemingly happy years of being married. They looked pretty solid to us, but it goes to show that you never really know what’s really going on in people’s lives.
They’ve released a civilized, explanatory statement of the news that reads, “We have agreed to a trial separation that dates back for some time. The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage. We remain best friendsÃ‚Â Ã‚Â and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply. As we go though this process we are determined to use kindness and understanding to get through this together. We are comfortable with the boundaries that we have established for each other during this separation and we hope that our friends, family, fans and the media also show us respect, dignity, understanding and loveÃ‚Â at this time as well. — David Arquette and Courteney Cox”
There’s obviously dirt that’s determined to come out, considering people are hell bent on finding out exactly what went wrong. One of these rumors is that David and Courteney were in an open marriage.Ã‚Â More specifically, that Courteney and Brian Van Holt, her co-star from Cougar Town, were getting hot and heavy. Especially one night when her limo driver was sent off home, while Courteney and Brian strolled off to the actress’ home (without David, natch). An on-set source says, “Brian dismissed the driver, telling him that she (Courteney) would be staying there, and that he didn’t need to come back.”
Meanwhile, David apparently has been off on wild benders in Hollywood. A source reveals, “Courteney and Brian were all over each at a wrap party in April and the talk on the set was that it was fine because she and David had an open marriage.” The speculation is that this is one of the factors in their marriage dissolving. David isn’t far behind in the mill either, with rumors of him hooking up with Jasmine Waltz. If that’s true then her 15 minutes of fame just won’t quit, as she’s also been linked with Ryan Seacrest,Ã‚Â Chris Pine (sigh) andÃ‚Â Jesse McCartney. We saved the best for last: Jasmine apparently clocked Lindsay Lohan at club Voyeur, where she worked as a waitress.
Whataver’s going on with those two – or three, or four – we can’t help but get a sense of deja vu. Courteney’s marital breakdown is eerily similar to her best pal, Jennifer Aniston‘s. Her split with Brad Pitt was a shocker too…and then all the Angelina Jolie rumors? All of it turned out to be true in that particular scenario, but let’s see what unveils with this saga.
Maria Menounos and Dane Cook might have been bummed, but most of the celebs onhand at the Staples Center last night were overjoyed with the Lakers victory over the Celtics in Game 7 of the NBA Championship series. Such familiar faces as Jack Nicholson and the Red Hot Chili Peppers cheered on the team, along with finger-waving David Arquette and Courteney Cox, George Lopez, Dustin Hoffman, a rather distant Jake Gyllenhaal (maybe he heard Reese would be there…) and those kaptivating Kardashians. Though Kim wasn’t hollering away like Khloe, we’re sure the Lakers appreciated her cleavage-baring, shredded t-shirt more than any single cheer. See more celebs in the gallery below.

At the Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards last night, some of the most fashion forward actresses around toned down their looks and stuck with the basic little black dress. Seriously, it was like there was a Hollywood phone chain and they all called each other in advance to make a fashion plan.
“This is Courteney on the horn, who’s this? Debra Messing? You old so and so, we haven’t talked since we were both on Must See TV back in the day! What’s that? All black outfits? Really? Did Hudgens agree to this too? Okay, I’m in. Latah!” Courteney Cox and Zoe Saldana were honorees at the award ceremony which was hosted by Messing.
The army of black was interrupted by a few brave souls who brought some color to the party (we’re loving Busy Phillips‘ gold number) but overall the looks were subtle and simple. Maybe they’re waiting to pull out the big guns and get creative at the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday.

The Weekly Daily Diff is our pop culture spin on the traditional “spot the difference” game. Check back every Wednesday for a new picture.
When busy lady Courteney Cox isn’t taking care of her daughter Coco, preparing for Scream 4 (Neve Campbell, welcome back!), or hanging out with her bestie Jennifer Aniston, she’s working hard on her hit series Cougar Town. Can you spot 10 differences in this pic of Courteney shooting a scene for her show on the beach in Malibu? [Photo: Splash News Online]
According to Variety, director Wes Craven and stars Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox Arquette and David Arquette will soon begin shooting Scream 4 for a scheduled release of April 2011. The return of the Scream isn’t that surprising—at this point it’s more unusual for a horror franchise not to be in progress—but what is bizarre about the resurrection of the smash hit ’90s chiller is that it’s not a Michael Bay-produced or Rob Zombie-directed remake of the original, but a sequel! With the original cast and director! More than a decade after the last one! And, yes, it will have been more than a decade since Scream 3—and therefore more than a decade since most people have seen Neve Campbell movie.
Not that this new movie won’t feature plenty of young flesh along aside the aging original actors—while the names of the new blood have yet to be announced, we wouldn’t be surprised if one of the surviving trio winds up killed before the credits even roll. How else will the producers make room for the snarky, sexed-up teenage adventures that made the series a hit in the first place? It’s supposed to be a chiller, not The Big Chill. Get a preview of how Neve’s been holding up in the gallery below.

We get it, Jennifer Aniston. While your age is increasing in numbers, your body is living the Benjamin Button dream, getting younger and younger looking as time ticks on. The actress and her A-List clique (Courteney Cox, Sheryl Crow, Gerard Butler) toasted her 41st year by relaxing their toned bodies poolside in Mexico. They all looked fit and fabulous, like only millionaires can. Jealous awaits you in the gallery below. [Photo: SplashNewsOnline]
