After broken heart and a very public mid-life crisis involving lots of partying and lots of different girls, actor David Arquette has checked himself into rehab. Â He admitted to Howard Stern in a December interview that he’d been drinking a lot to deal with the separation from his wife, actress Courteney Cox, and that when he drinks he turns into “a maniac.”
Arquette also told Stern that he believed he was heading toward a nervous breakdown, and that things weren’t looking too good for him. Â Word has it that Arquette checked into rehab in a last-ditch effort to impress his wife into thinking that he can still be a responsible husband and father. Â It will be interesting to see if she takes him back after all this.
It’s no secret that Courteney Cox and David Arquette have separated, and are definitely each getting on with their own respective lives, but Cox claims that just because they’ve pretty much called it quits right now, doesn’t mean they’re getting divorced. Â She says that although she and her husband have been separated for quite a few months now, they have no way of knowing what will happen in the future, and that they’ve decided to hold off on getting a divorce until they can wait a while and see how things are going to pan out.
Arquette expressed similar sentiments last week and said that there was always a chance that separated people could get back together. Â It sounds like these two really love each other, despite their differences, and it’ll be interesting to see if they manage to pull it together, or make the split permanent.
David Arquette appeared on Regis and Kelly this week to clear up what he says are misconceptions about his marital fidelity. Â Arquette claims that at the time he was seen out and about with other women, he and wife Courteney Cox had been separated for many months and had a mutual agreement that it was okay to see other people.
They simply hadn’t made their situation public, and so tabloids and casual observers may have come to the wrong conclusion. Â Arquette went on to say that he thinks there’s a chance that he and Cox could get back together at some point, but at the moment they just want completely different things from life – namely, he wants to have sex with lots of random women, and she wants a husband who doesn’t want to have sex with lots of random women.
While Friends star Courteney Cox is splitting from her husband, David Arquette, her co-star David Schwimmer just announced that he got married four months ago in a private ceremony that he managed to hide fromâ€¦ well, everyone. Â Schwimmer married photographer Zoe Buckman back in June, and the two managed to keep it so quiet that not even the paparazzi picked up on it. Â A representative for the couple announced the news yesterday, though why they chose this particular timing is unclear. Â I’m guessing they figured that no one would care four months after the fact, but honestly I’m not sure people would have cared that much about his wedding anyway. Â Now, if Jennifer Aniston ever gets married againâ€¦ that’ll be a different story.
