Chaz Bono: Cha-cha-chatting after 'DWTS' debut [Video]

Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer rehearse for Dancing With the Stars

"Dancing With the Stars" fans who wanted to see Chaz Bono in action with Lacey Schwimmer had to stay up late Monday night: The heavily hyped duo were the final performers on the 12-dance "DWTS" season 13 premiere.

Bono didn't seem too sure of things in the clip leading up the the performance. "Being in your 40s, and overweight, it kills my body," he said. "I really wanna not suck."

Mama Cher, however, was stoked when the music was over, tweeting, "WOW! HOW GREAT WAS MY SON! THE GREATEST THING, GREATEST THING, GREATEST THING NO MATTER WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! HES A WINNER! I Was So Nervous!"

The judges were also receptive, giving the two a score of 17 on a night when the numbers ranged from 14 (Ron Artest, newly renamed Metta World Peace) to a couple of 22s (singer Chynna Phillips, actor-veteran J.R. Martinez). Comments included

The Ministry's vote for contestant most likely to be spotted walking on air in the near future, however, goes to the boyish David Arquette, who appeared to thoroughly enjoy his time on the dance floor -- as well as the presence in the audience of daughter Coco, with estranged but smiling wife Courtney Cox.

Check out Chaz and Lacey's post-game interview with ABC, below.

David Arquette, Courteney Cox reunite for Art of Elysium dinner

David Arquette hosted a private dinner for The Art of Elysium this week
 

David Arquette and Courteney Cox reunited at his place this week for a good cause: Arquette held a private, celeb-filled dinner for the Art of Elysium at his Beverly Hills pad.

A suit-clad Arquette welcomed guests for a meal and some education about the organization, which taps noted artists, actors and musicians to work with kids battling serious illness.

Topher Grace, Elijah Wood, Rachel Bilson, Ali Larter, Lukas Haas and Jamie King attended, witnessing a passionate speech from Arquette about the charity's mission. So passionate, a partygoer told the Ministry, that the separated couple high-fived after he spoke his piece.

Cox and Arquette split last October but remain friends in co-parenting their little gal, Coco. The do-gooding comes on the heels of Arquette lending some elbow grease to Habitat for Humanity, where the "Scream 4" star helped with home construction in Burbank.

The Elysium bash, which also attracted Michelle Trachtenberg, featured a three-course sit-down dinner and brut and rose Champagne from Beau Joie.

Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox falling out is 'completely false,' rep says

Jennfier Aniston and Courteney Cox's falling out is completely false, her rep says

Jennifer Aniston
and Courteney Cox are still best friends, her rep maintains, despite a report that the famous pair had a falling out.

Aniston and Cox, longtime pals since their days on 'Friends," have been experiencing "tension" since Cox's separation from David Arquette, according to the report from Us magazine.

"It's completely false -- there was no falling out," Aniston's rep told the Ministry in an email. "Jennifer has always and continues to consider Courteney a dear and close friend."

The Us report quoted an insider as saying "Jen thinks Courteney is acting callous" by spending time with "Cougartown" costars Brian Van Holt and Josh Hopkins, without formally filing for divorce from Arquette.

Another tidbit that would suggest Aniston and Cox are still total BFFs: Aniston reportedly introduced Cox to her new beau, actor and writer Justin Theroux

Aniston reportedly held a small to-do for her friends to meet Theroux on Friday, attended by Cox and Chelsea Handler, among others.

"They all had a great time and enjoyed Justin's company," a source told People magazine.

Brad Pitt, Courteney Cox spotted at a dinner together

Brad Pitt and Courteney Cox  shared a friendly meal recently

Brad Pitt and Courteney Cox reunited for a friendly dinner Wednesday -- and, boy, we'd love to have been a lime on a margarita at that table!

At Eva Longoria's restaurant Beso, Pitt and Cox -- connected for years through Cox's BFF Jennifer Aniston, Pitt's ex-wife -- gathered to celebrate the birthday of Cynthia Pett-Dante.

Pett-Dante manages both Pitt and Cox. The vibe was super casual and very smiley, People said, reporting that "they hugged and kissed when they greeted each other" and "talked a lot."

While the famous two weren't seated together, the report insists they interacted a lot, and "it didn't seem awkward at all."

Pitt munched on a steak and had a beer, and at one point he sat at Beso's front bar with fellow patrons.

'Scream 4' premieres with Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Neve Campbell

Scream 4 premieres with Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Neve Campbell

Monday evening saw a rare occasion in Hollywood -- plenty of "Scream" without a lot of fuss.

The long-awaited "Scream 4," part of Wes Craven's horror franchise, premiered at Grauman's Chinese theater with a bloody good party to follow at the Redbury Hotel.

David Arquette at the Scream 4 premiere Gracing the iron-clad screening at the movie house tiled with hand- and footprints of legendary stars, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette joined their boss Craven to greet an embarrassment of fans on Hollywood Boulevard.

"Scream" legacy Jamie Kennedy, a.k.a Randy Meeks, was among the first to hit the carpet, bemoaning his demise in the second film but showing support nonetheless. 

Arquette followed, looking fit and optimistic after his stint in rehab, along with costars Kristen Bell, Anna Paquin, Shenae Grimes and Lucy Hale, not to mention the new film's major scene-stealer Alison Brie.

Cox and Campbell rolled up hand in hand, walking the carpet together looking sweet -- no surprise as Campbell, promoting the film a few weeks ago, told the Ministry that she'd never been closer to Courteney than when filming the newest chapter. Click the pic of Arquette for more photos from the red carpet.

At the Redbury afterward, Arquette couldn't be found but Cox held strong with a group of friends, chatting up Craven and producers. Her "Cougartown" costar Josh Hopkins turned up at the Axe Shower-sponsored fete, in casual glasses and a track jacket. Across the open-air terrace, Anna Paquin entertained some gal pals sans husband Stephen Moyer.

'Scream 4' movie premiere: Live from the red carpet

After keeping the "Scream" franchise in mothballs for more than a decade, director Wes Craven has returned to it with "Scream 4," featuring a brand new cast of pretty, young actors including Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin starring alongside regulars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and her estranged husband, David Arquette.

Despite some scandalous headlines, Cox and Arquette have maintained a civil tone toward each other in the media. So don't expect any red carpet fireworks at Monday's premiere of "Scream 4," assuming the two both show up as planned.

To see just who does show up (if her Twitter excitement is any sign, you can count on seeing Roberts), check back here at 6:30 p.m. PDT for a live stream from the "Scream 4" premiere.

Courteney Cox: David Arquette is 'not a malicious person'

Courteney Cox There are still no hard feelings between Courteney Cox and David Arquette, the actress maintains in a new interview.

"You can't really get mad at David because he's not a malicious person," Cox tells Harper's Bazaar. 

Drenched in soft and sleek dresses and rocking some diva hair, Cox posed for photog Terry Richardson in a spread with a decidedly '70s feel -- and had some thoroughly modern issues on her mind.

"I don't know what's going to happen" as far as Arquette's future and sobriety are concerned, Cox said, "but I don't think he'll be doing more Howard Stern any time soon. He's not out to harm. But I'm his biggest protector. I can't help it."

He could sure use the protection with a ghost-faced killer running around. The now-estranged couple met on the set of Wes Craven's horror franchise "Scream," and will help release the fourth installment on April 15.

'Friends' Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc and Jennifer Aniston back in a big way

Matthew Perry in 'Mr. Sunshine' This post has been corrected. Please see the note at the bottom.

The cast of "Friends" is back to making headlines, this time with Matthew Perry leading the way with ratings love for the debut of his new sitcom, "Mr. Sunshine."

Thanks to a lot of hype and a lead-in from "Modern Family" on Wednesday night, 10.57 million viewers tuned in to watch the premiere of the ABC show, according to overnight ratings from Nielson Co.

The show stars Perry as a San Diego stadium owner and Andrea Anders as his love interest, who is his "Friends" costar Matt LeBlanc's real-life girlfriend.

(The 9:30 p.m. Wednesday premiere bar had been set pretty high in 2009 by another "Friends" alum, Courteney Cox, whose "Cougar Town" on ABC drew 11.28 million viewers in September of that year.)

Matt LeBlanc in 'Episodes' Flip the channel to NBC, where LeBlanc shattered many a heart -- including Jay Leno's -- when he visited "The Tonight Show" and revealed that he'd started dyeing his hair black while "Friends" was in full swing. The star of Showtime's "Episodes" said he started dyeing the sides of his now salt-and-pepper locks in his mid-20s.

"Dyeing it on the show would take like an hour and a half," he said — so he got some Just for Men and started coloring it himself. It "takes five minutes, but then about a half-hour of paint-thinner to get the black off your ears," he said, laughing.

"This is shattering for those of us that loved the show," Leno said.

Another "Friends" fun fact: LeBlanc said he shut down production on the Emmy-winning show during "The One Where No One's Ready." He blew out his shoulder while performing "the safest stunt," in which Joey had to jump over the coffee table and land in the down chair that he and Chandler were fighting over.

Watch a clip here.

Jennifer Aniston will be battling Justin Bieber at the box office this weekend when her new comedy, "Just Go With It," with Adam Sandler, opens against the Biebs' documentary, "Never Say Never."

Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer, where you at?

For the record, 5:35 p.m.: This post originally said "Mr. Sunshine" had bested "Cougar Town's" premiere-night ratings, with numbers given only for the Matthew Perry show. "Cougar Town" in fact premiered with 11.28 million viewers to "Mr. Sunshine's" 10.57 million.

David Arquette leaves rehab, treatment completed

David Arquette rehab Wow, time flies when you're having not quite as much fun -- David Arquette left rehab Sunday, having checked himself in over the New Year's weekend for treatment of alcoholism and depression.

"He has left after completing treatment," his rep told CNN International. Arquette entered an undisclosed live-in facility on Jan. 2.

Shoot, maybe Ted Williams just needed to hold on a couple more weeks?

Arquette's behavior had become increasingly more erratic after his separation from wife Courteney Cox went public in October.

David Arquette enters rehab; Courteney Cox supportive

David Arquette and Courteney Cox David Arquette has entered a rehab facility for treatment of alcohol abuse and depression, it was widely reported Sunday.

The decision for treatment -- confirmed Monday by his rep, though with few details -- came on the heels of New Year's weekend, which saw Arquette  wrapping up a difficult 2010 that included a separation from wife Courteney Cox and modified visitation with their daughter, Coco. 

"I really admire David and his choice to take charge and better his life," Cox told People in a statement. "I love and support him."

Arquette's paradigm shift in lifestyle and behavior began almost immediately after the October split from his wife. The actor took up a resident gig with Las Vegas variety act Beacher's Madhouse, which opens to the public at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in February. 

He also began partying heartily, relocated from the Malibu abode he shared with Cox to their centrally located West Hollywood digs, and even opened up about the onset of depression.

"I've been drinking a lot," Arquette confessed on Howard Stern's radio show in a rather attention-grabbing interview after his split when he admitted he was already sleeping with other people. Reports unanimously indicated that Arquette is not seeking drug-related treatment.
