David Arquette called into Howard Stern today for an exclusive interview about why he separated from Courtney Cox. It was an honest and candid interview, which is surprising because most celebrities usually just say, “we grew apart.” Arquette said that things began to unravel while they filmed Scream 4. Courtney bought David Arquette a motorcycle for their anniversary and told him that she “doesn’t want to be his mother anymore,” which basically meant that she was tired of nagging him about being more mature. David interpreted that as a license to party, and it didn’t help their marriage. Stern asked Arquette if he thought she had an affair with her Cougar Town co-star, Brian Van Holt, and Arquette said that, if anything, it was an “emotional affair,” because Van Holt is more verbal than Arquette, and Cox wanted someone she could have “deep conversations” with. He also admitted to having slept with Jasmine Waltz “once or maybe twice,” and implied that Waltz tipped off the tabloids about having slept with him. He insisted that he was already separated when he slept with her, and that it was Courtney’s idea to sleep with other people. Stern suggested that Courtney allowed that because she wanted to sleep with Van Holt, and Arquette shrugged it off. Arquette admitted that he constantly calls Courtney asking her to get back together, but he ultimately wants her to find someone to make her happy, and if he’s not that person, then so be it. And there you have it. I love David Arquette, and after hearing the interview, I’m sad for him. Click the link below to hear a portion of it.
