Celebrity Snafus: David Arquette and Courteney Cox

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Divorce Detox: There's a Chinese proverb that says, "You can hardly make a friend in a year, but you can lose one in an hour." David Arquette did that last week when he went on national radio and spoke about his separation from wife Courteney Cox.

Courtney Cox and David Arquette
One of the most shocking comments Arquette made on Howard Stern's popular morning radio show was admitting that he'd had an affair. Even more shocking was Arquette's comment that "The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage. We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply." 

While celebrities are often forced into the limelight because their lives are so public, airing dirty laundry is never a good idea. There are no hard-and-fast rules about how to talk about a marital breakup, but the lesson learned from David Arquette applies to anyone who has betrayed a lifelong partner: The pain and heartbreak experienced in the wake of an infidelity is unbearable, so showing your injured ex the respect, compassion and kindheartedness they deserve should be your number-one priority. 

Having an affair hurts your spouse, no matter what. Talking about it in public -- or on one of the most popular morning radio shows in the country -- is like throwing salt on the wound. It stings your spouse as well as your children, and can certainly tarnish your own reputation.

Hi all, - spotted your current site unintentionally when roaming across the net this afternoon, and happy that i did! I like the layout and colours, but I ought to mention that I’m having difficulty when it loads. I’m making use of Netscape 8 web browser for mac, and the top panel would not line up nicely. i am confident used the same design on a customer’s internet site, but the menu seems fine on mine. I imagine the error is with my outdated browser & I suppose it is time to update!
