Courteney Cox says she's not getting a divorce -- does David Arquette know?

Arquette-cox-2009 Courteney Cox says she and David Arquette have "grown apart" but aren't getting a divorce.

"I don't know what will happen, but this is not like we're getting divorced," she told TV Week. "This is a separation and I think that takes a lot of courage."

By way of explaining Arquette's recent comments to Howard Stern, she said her estranged husband is "a kook."

"I always thought of myself as the greatest wife because I'll do whatever I want to do and I don't mean open marriage, that's not what we had," she told the Aussie mag over the weekend while promoting "Cougar Town."

So, yeah, that's her take on things -- what do you think?

PREACH IT! David Arquette's sister freaks out at the wrong people


So Patricia Arquette walked a red carpet the other night. It did not end well.

The event was in New York; the actress showed up with her brother David. That's the same David who for quite a while now has been talking and tweeting about his separation from wife Courteney Cox. Because of David, we know now the last time he and Cox had sex, why they separated, how often he's had sex since and how he says it's not cheating, and that he's wept bitter tears about the whole hot mess.

So when the Arquette siblings arrived on the red carpet Wednesday, the media, naturally, had more than a few follow-up questions.

Patricia deigned to field a few queries, but her patience did not last.

"How are you doing?" she finally snapped to the reporters. "How is your kid doing? Have you ever had anything happen in your life? What's the worst thing that you've ever had happen to you? Do you ever masturbate? Have you ever had an abortion? I mean, can you imagine these kind of questions? Can you imagine? Can you imagine? It's not all right! It's not all right!"

Yes, Patricia, we can imagine these kinds of questions, because your brother has made sure that we imagine these kinds of questions.

David Arquette wants us to know he is having sex again -- but not before splitting with Courteney Cox

David Arquette gets super sexy in Sacramento

After oversharing that he'd not had sex for months with estranged wife Courteney Cox, David Arquette would also like people to know that he didn't have sex with anyone else for 11 years either.

This time he wasn't opening his yap on Howard Stern's satellite radio show -- we'll get to that later -- but rather on that racy, raunchy, hotbed of smut known as "Live! With Regis and Kelly."

Arquette and Cox had a deal where they were separated and could see other people, he said, "So somebody sold the story and I didn't want to get labeled as a cheater."

He didn't mind admitting on a return visit to Stern's show, however, that he cried the first time he had post-nuptial, non-Cox sex.

No permanent emotional scarring, apparently -- Arquette said that in addition to sexing up Jasmine Waltz, he'd hit the sheets with a blond Australian woman he met at a party. Rejecting Stern's advice that he bump uglies with Jennifer Aniston, noting that she's his future ex-wife's best friend, he left the door open for a scandalous tryst with Angelina Jolie instead.

'Scream 4' teaser trailer reunites Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Neve Campbell


 After unveiling new footage at last weekend's Spike TV Scream Awards, the gang from "Scream 4" is back with a full official teaser trailer.

Unfortunately, so is their ghost-faced menace.

Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Anthony Anderson, Adam Brody and many more return to the sleepy fictional town of Woodsboro, where Campbell's Sidney Prescott inspires homicide en masse.

In the official trailer, director Wes Craven makes good on those rumored cameos -- Kristen Bell, Anna Paquin, Shenae Grimes and "Pretty Little Liars" star Lucy Hale all show up.

Check out the chills and thrills above, and give us your thoughts on the latest "Scream" installment in the comments section below.

David Arquette keeps silent at the Scream Awards 2010


While we've also got the full scoop on Spike TV's Scream Awards 2010, the edgy telecast saluting the horror and hero genres, we thought you'd also like to check in on David Arquette's whereabouts at the Saturday night event.

Scream-awards-gallery-refer The actor made his first public appearance (not counting Arquette's candid Howard Stern interview) since announcing his separation from his wife of 11 years, Courteney Cox

In tow with cast members Neve Campbell and Emma Roberts, Arquette was on hand to present new footage from "Scream 4," the much-anticipated next chapter of Wes Craven's slasher franchise. Clad in a brown leather jacket and showing a hint of a tan, Arquette walked the red carpet for photos only before sprinting away from broadcast and print media.

Once inside, he stuck close to Campbell and Roberts, sharing snacks like macaroni and cheese and taking more photos. Never too far was his pal Jeff Beacher, with whom he'll host an upcoming variety show at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.

David Arquette apologizes for blabbing about sex life with Jasmine Waltz, no-sex life with Courteney Cox [poll]


David Arquette has apologized for blabbing too much information on Howard Stern's radio show Tuesday, but it's not exactly clear to whom he's apologizing.

Arquette on Tuesday shared the family-friendly details that he and wife Courteney Cox hadn't had sex in months — it went public Monday that they're separated — and, more specifically, that they hadn't had sex together in months, but that he and bartender Jessica Waltz had rocked a little sumpin' sumpin' at least once once, maybe twice.

"I went on Howard Stern yesterday to provide clarity and honesty about what I'm experiencing but while doing that I shared too much ... it's alright for me to be honest about my own feelings but in retrospect some of the information I provided involved others and for that I am sorry and humbled. Life is a process of spiritual evolution," Arquette wrote on his Twitter page. "I'm sure Courteney and myself will emerge from this painful time better people for what we've learned."

So the wife of 11 years can't be happy, clearly, because who wants to be known as the partner who

David Arquette might be a little immature for Courteney Cox? What, did the pro wrestling give him away?


In case you were thinking David Arquette and Courteney Cox were a match made to last, check out the video above, in which one of the spouses definitely acts a bit like the parent of the other spouse.

One thing about a guy who's been a wrestling world champion -- nobody should really be that shocked when he goes on Howard Stern's radio show and talks about no, not having sex with his wife for months, and yes, having sex with a bartender during that time. Even when that broadcast comes the day after "sources close to" the husband and wife leak that divorce isn't necessarily a given.

(Why do we have this weird feeling that the rapper incarnation of Joaquin Phoenix is going to pop up soon, a la Chris Matthews on "To Catch a Predator," just to monitor Arquette's separation progress?)

For those unfamiliar with Arquette's wrestling past, we present a video below of the "Ready to Rumble" actor's WCW World Championship win in an April 2000 match against Jeff Jarrett,

David Arquette talks to Howard Stern about Courteney Cox split [polls]

David Arquette In confirming their separation Monday after 11 years of marriage, David Arquette and Courteney Cox asked pretty much everyone to show them "respect, dignity, understanding and love at this time."

On Tuesday, Arquette phoned up Howard Stern and broadcast the fact that he and Cox hadn't had sex for months -- hey, thanks for sharing -- and that she'd told him, "I don't want to be your mother anymore."

He continued about his own immaturity: "I've been going to therapy," he said. "I'm trying to grow up."

Arquette, 39, also discussed his "one conquest" since he and Cox, 46, separated: Jasmine Waltz, 28, a woman known for giving Lindsay Lohan a punch in the face as the actress celebrated her 24th birthday. Waltz had no comment when asked about Arquette.

So riddle us this ...

Courteney Cox, David Arquette are separated [updated]

Cox-arquette Courteney Cox and David Arquette, who met on the set of "Scream" in 1996 and married in 1999, have separated, the actors confirmed Monday in a statement.

The two struck a deal for a trial separation, which People reports has been the situation for a while now, to "better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage."

Sources connected with the couple told TMZ, which first reported the split, that the months-old separation finally went public Monday because photos had allegedly surfaced of Arquette with another woman. He was photographed in September minus his wedding ring.

That said, those people also said it isn't a given that Cox, 46, and Arquette, 39, will divorce. They have one daughter, Coco, who's 6.

"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 love at this time as well," the couple said in their statement.

Arquette seemed in good spirits Saturday, attending Seth MacFarlane's party without Cox and hanging with pal Jeff Beacher. He and Beacher are collaborating on an alternative variety show going up at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, with Arquette as emcee.

And no matter their marital status, Cox and Arquette still have a date this spring to promote their movie "Scream 4."

[For the record, 9 a.m. Oct. 12: An earlier version of this article said the couple met in 1994 on the set of "Scream." They met in 1996 while working on that film.]

Sightings: Leonardo DiCaprio and Chris Brown party coast to coast

Chris-brown-sightings Hump day was a busy one for celebrities in West Hollywood and New York, coaxing out the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Chris Brown, respectively.

In West Hollywood, nightspot Trousdale toasted partner Darren Dzienciol's birthday Wednesday with a room full of bold names. DiCaprio was surrounded by usual suspects Jamie Foxx and Jeremy Piven, while Olivia Munn held court nearby Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

David Arquette showed, sans wife Courteney Cox-Arquette, and was clearly in good spirits -- an onlooker tells us that on his way out the actor broke into an impromptu rap with a street performer.

In New York, celbs ceelbrated the 10th anniversary of BET's video countdown show "106 & Park" at NYC nightlife staple Marquee. Brown "stole the show," according to partygoers, dancing into the night alongside Bow Wow, Trey Songz and Ja Rule.

Brown even hopped on the mike, thanking fans for "sticking by him" and doing a cover of Kanye West's new single "Runaway Love."
