David Arquette doesn’t think it’s a big deal that his estranged wife went on vacation with another man. The tabloids were abuzz when Courteney Cox was spotted on St. Bart’s with daughter Coco and her “Cougar Town” co-star, Josh Hopkins. But despite showing signs that a reconciliation with his spouse might be imminent, the “Scream 4” actor said he’s unfazed.
“We’re best friends,” he said on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show. “We’re not together. We’re still separated.”
David went on to denounce the “horrible articles” about the former “Friends” star’s getaway, saying, “She went away to St. Bart’s with Coco and her best friend and Josh from the show, and I know about all of this. But these tabloids make it like there’s some kind of scandal going on. But there’s no scandal.”
He and Courteney have both been forthright with the media about still having feelings for each other, despite separating last fall after a decade of marriage. And with each other, too, “we’re really honest and open,” David said. “Our relationship right now is actually better than ever.”
By parting, “we both took a moment to look at our relationship,” said the actor, who recently marked his 100th day of sobriety after a post-breakup bender that led him into rehab. “For me, I used it in a bad way to act out and kind of shake my world up because I was heartbroken. I dealt with it in the way I had to because I believe in learning from my mistakes. I went where I had to go to come back, and look at myself and look at my life.”
OK, so are they getting back together now or what?
Another strange day in the life of Lindsay Lohan, complete with family drama: The starlet hid in her Venice apartment on Sunday afternoon as father Michael tried to break in the front door, TMZ reported. Allegedly, Michael also peeped through the back windows in hopes of seeing his daughter, and even began banging on the windows.
LiLo’s dad reportedly left, evidently of his own volition, a little after 3 p.m., and cops were not called.
Oddly enough, for once Michael’s desperate attempt to win face time with Lindsay appears to have worked. The two broke bread — or, to be specific, ate bagels — at her Venice pad Monday morning.
“I am with my daughter,” Michael told Radar Online.
Guess blood is thicker than water — and so is, er, cream cheese.
We’ve heard of some bizarre celebrity baby names (cough ... Bronx Mowgli ... cough). But really, Santa?
According to a U.K. tabloid report, Victoria and David Beckham are planning to give their fourth child, and first daughter, a moniker inspired by their Santa Monica neighborhood. Hey, they already have a son named Brooklyn!
The expectant former Spice Girls member “thinks Santa Beckham has a lovely ring to it and wants something unique,” a source allegedly told the U.K.’s Sun. “David prefers something traditional, but will probably go along with what she chooses.”
But Victoria’s camp squashed the Santa scuttlebutt.
“This is simply tabloid nonsense,” her rep told British Vogue magazine.
Well, duh. We can’t imagine the ultrasvelte, ultrachic Posh Spice naming her daughter after a fat guy in a fuzzy suit.
