Courteney Cox Clears Up Split Rumours in New Interview

Tuesday, Nov 2, 2010

As we said before,out of respect for both Courteney and David – Chanel and I will not post any rumours,gossip and speculation on their marriage seperation. However,Courteney has just done an interview with TV week about the seperation where she clears up speculation of a divorce,and dating someone new. I felt I should post this to hopefully end any speculation and rumours,and as always nothing further will be posted on this.

Hollywood star Courteney Cox has spoken publicly for the first time about her separation from husband David Arquette to TV WEEK magazine.In a candid and frank interview, the Cougar Town actress reveals the real reason behind the split, as well as how her Friends co-star and best friend Jennifer Aniston has been a huge support during her marriage breakdown.

While David, 39, caused a stir last month when he admitted to Howard Stern on radio that his infidelity was due to not having sex with his wife for four months, Courteney, 46, slammed his comments and put them down to his “kooky” nature.

“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 TV WEEK during an interview in Hollywood to promote Cougar Town over the weekend.

“Sometimes you just realise ‘Wow, we actually have grown apart’. He’s [David] a kook. It’s not shocking and Howard Stern he loves him and I’m a fan of Howard Stern. I don’t know that I would call him right now, but … David is an entertainer and I’m sure the people who listen to the radio are entertained by his stories.”

The actress, who is mother to six-year-old daughter Coco, even hinted at reconciliation with David, saying the separation is the most courageous thing she’s ever undertaken.

“I would say the most courageous thing, and this is really personal, but I would say getting separated from someone after so many years of marriage and someone I love so much, just to take a moment and this is a trial separation,” she said. “This is no – I am not – we’re not – I don’t know what will happen, but this is not like we’re getting divorced. This is a separation and I think that takes a lot of courage. That’s for sure the biggest thing I’ve ever done. Whatever is supposed to happen will be the best thing for us.”

Having been through separation herself, after divorcing Brad Pitt in 2005, Jennifer Aniston has been supporting Courteney.

“We just have fun, we laugh, we’re inseparable and it’s great,” Courteney says. “It’s funny, a lot of really close friends are kind of going through this right now or like Jennifer [who] has gone through it. I don’t know what’s going on in the planets or what, but things are being shaken up and I don’t know what’s going to happen, but, yeah, Jennifer has been amazing for sure.” After more than 11 years married to David, Courteney says she’s definitely not jumping into the dating scene just yet.

“I am not doing anything. No dating,” she said. “I hate to go out, so, I don’t know how that would work. I’m a homebody.”
