David Arquette and Courteney Cox have separated after 11 years of togetherness and one daughter. In Hollywood years, this is almost a lifetime, but one more failed marriage is now looming on the horizon.
When they first married, some wondered if it would last even then. After all, Courteney is seven years older than David and he had a reputation for being quite silly. As we found out today after his interview with Howard Stern, it did play a role in their separation.
David told Mr. Stern that Courteney had told him she is tired of being his mother. He admitted that some of his antics have embarrassed Courteney in public and that has put strain on their marriage. He denied that he had been unfaithful during their marriage and stated that he does not think she has been unfaithful, either.
Going on a worldwide radio show and airing your marriage woes is an example of being immature, David. But then, people in Hollywood live by different rules than the rest of us. He went on to say that they both still love each other and he has asked to come home, but she needs some time to think things over. One can’t help but wonder how much more damage he did by airing their dirty laundry in public. Will Courteney forgive him or will this stunt be the final straw?
He needs to grow up and start thinking about his little daughter, Coco. But then again, this is Hollywood, and when did anyone out there ever think of anyone but themselves for more than a minute.
