No divorce for Courteney Cox and David Arquette; just separated

The ‘Cougar Town’ chick said that the two have come to realize how distanced they have become.

Courteney Cox and David Arquette have long announced their separation, but they are still not prepared to untie the holy knot. Despite the recent complications in their relationship, the couple is not yet ready to end their marriage of 11 years.

“I don't know what will happen, but this is not like we're getting divorced,” Courteney said in an interview with TV Week. “This is a separation and I think that takes a lot of courage... Whatever is supposed to happen will be the best thing for us.”

I don't know what's going on in the planets or what, but things are being shaken up and I don't know what's going to happen. -- Courteney Cox

’Grown apart’
The ‘Cougar Town’ chick also added that the two have come to realize how distanced they have become. “Sometimes you just realize ‘Wow, we actually have grown apart’,” she said, refuting to say much, unlike her conversational husband, who divulged too many details of their separation and his life post it.

Since the couple announced their split in early October, Arquette has twice been to Howard Stern’s show and has openly discussed his split from his wife on air.

He revealed that the two had not been having sex for quite sometime, and that he'd slept with bartender and actress Jasmine Waltz and another blonde woman after separating from Courteney. David also revealed that he cried after he bedded the first woman, because it felt like the end of all intimacy he had shared with his wife.

Not shocked by David’s disclosures
Questioned about David’s revelations on air, Courteney simply said, “[David] is a kook. It's not shocking and Howard Stern he loves him and I'm a fan of Howard Stern . . . David is an entertainer and I'm sure the people who listen to the radio are entertained by his stories.”

The actress also said that during this emotionally tough time she sought support in her FRIENDS colleague and close friend, Jennifer Aniston, who had also been through a similar situation a few years back, when her marriage to Brad Pitt got bitter.

“I don't know what's going on in the planets or what, but things are being shaken up and I don't know what's going to happen, but, yeah, Jennifer has been amazing for sure,” said Courteney.
