Courteney Cox and David Arquette are officially divorced! It’s about time! They have been married since 1999 and have one child together, a daughter named Coco. They called time on their marriage in 2010 amid rumors that he was cheating on her with everything that moved. Since, they filed the divorce papers, but were seemingly holding on in hopes of a reconciliation. Either that, or it was just wishful thinking on our parts.
Either way, they are officially divorced now and can go on about their lives and be happy. Who should they date next? Share your thoughts below!
Despite having filed for divorce, Courteney Cox still refers to her ex-husband David Arquette as her best friend. How sweet! It’s good to see celebrities getting along with the utmost regard for their child, as have Courteney and David. What a really amicable way of being apart…
The former couple called it quits in 2010, but ended up filing for divorce in 2012 and Courteney says that she still loves him. In a new interview with Ellen DeGeneres, she said, “He’s my best friend in the world. I love him. I appreciate David more now than I ever did. I mean, it’s hard…. I don’t recommend divorce in general, but, you know, he is my best friend and we’ve both grown and changed.”
She went on to say, “I think we both appreciate each other more. I hope he does. I do.”
Since becoming single, Courteney said that her co-stars on “Cougar Town” have tried to help her find someone new. When he was asked who he would choose for Courteney to date, Brian van Holt pointed at Dan Byrd and jokingly said, “She loves this man right here, she likes the cerebral hunk type.”
Her other show co-star Busy Phillips said, “A couple of people have asked me who I would set Courteney up with. I think she is a homebody and if Courteney had her way she would never leave her house, so she does need a partner who will bring her out and just tell her she has no choice and, make her go out into the world. She prefers everyone to come to her beautiful house, and by the way if my house was as good as hers I’d never want to leave it.”

When the news broke that David Arquette had finally filed for divorce from Courteney Cox, she wasn’t saddened by the news. Rumor has it that he signed the divorce documents in March, but had waited roughly three months before filing them in court.
David filed the papers on Friday, citing irreconcilable differences. When asked about David’s decision to file the documents, Courteney replied sarcastically, “He diiiiid? Oh my God, I didn’t know.”
Well she shouldn’t really be surprised that he wasn’t going to hang around forever in hopes of a reconciliation, right? He was vocal about wanting to try and work things out, but she was against the idea.
David Arquette married Courteney Cox on June 12, 1999 and share a daughter together. In October of 2010, the duo announced that they were going through a trial separation, but commented that they still love each other deeply.
On Friday, June 8th, David filed for divorce from Courteney, citing irreconcilable differences. David is asking the court to award them joint legal and physical custody of their daughter Coco. David filed the papers without an attorney and has signed them in March. He was holding on to the paperwork for almost three months before going down to the courthouse and filing them. Was he hoping for a reconciliation?
Is it about time that they are moving on from their failed marriage? Or were you hoping that they would get back together? Weigh in below in the comments and let us know what you think!
We were wondering when the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie wedding rumors would start up again. After it was said that Brad had turned himself into a wedding planner, it’s now being said that Brad has invited Jennifer Aniston’s best friend Courteney Cox — to his wedding! Talk about awkward!
Brad and Jennifer divorced in 2005, but they have been friends since. Do you think that Brad would invite her BFF to his wedding? Would he be that insensitive?
Despite Brad and Jennifer splitting up, the new rumors suggest that Courteney has agreed to accept Brad’s wedding invitation. A source has revealed, “Courteney would never have accepted it at the height of the split but she says they’ve all grown up and moved on.”
The insider added, “Jen’s upset and hurt, though.”
Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox have been best friends for the longest time. Now, we’re hearing that Jen has actually ditched Courteney ever since she began dating her Wanderlust co-star Justin Theroux!
Is she really ignoring her BFF for a guy?!?
When Jen had her Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony, Courteney was nowhere to be found. Reportedly, Jen and Courteney have been spending a lot less time together since she fell for Justin.
Courteney was said to be miffed after Jen cancelled a girls’ night out together at the last minute — so that she could spend time with Justin.
A source said, “Jennifer’s priorities have obviously changed since meeting Justin. But Courteney must feel that Jen has completely forgotten what it’s like to be the single girl and that will hurt given how supportive she and David were to Jen over the years.”
Can you imagine ditching your very supportive best friend to spend more time with someone you live with? Sure, she should expect to see Jennifer less, given that she’s dating someone new, but to completely ignore your BFF is just heinous. Don’t you think?
Courteney Cox talked to Howard Stern recently about her personal life and revealed that she’s not exactly quite ready for any type of relationship just yet. She said that she hasn’t been with a man since things went south between herself and estranged husband, David Arquette. Wow, so she hasn’t had sex since 2010?!?
And why is everybody and their mother talking to Howard about their sex lives? David opens up to Howard all of the time and now Courteney is! Crazy.
Earlier this week, she told Howard, “I have not had a man since David. No guy has asked me out. Right now, I’m not quite ready to date. I’m getting closer…as things become more final in my life with David.”
He was rumored to be cheating on her, but since hasn’t wasted any time hooking up with Christina McLarty, who was once linked to Girls Gone Wild founder, Joe Francis. Courteney still calls David her “favorite person in the world”, however.
Apparently, he has been trying to get her to put herself out there for dating. She said, “He says to me, ‘Courteney, it’s time. Get out there.’ He wants me to date now. He wants me to start my life, and he’s comfortable with whoever that would be.”
Does it sound to you as if Courteney is still hoping for things to work out with David? What do you think? Sound off in the comments and let us know your thoughts!
