It’s been a little over a week since we learned that Courteney Cox and David Arquette had split up and since that time David has been shoving his foot in his mouth and then apologizing for blabbing about the couple’s break-up. Over the weekend, tho, the estranged couple reunited here in SoCal in a show of unity for their daughter Coco Riley. Courteney and David played happy parents at Coco‘s horse show on Sunday:
Things looked anything but tense between Courteney Cox and David Arquette on Oct. 17, when they reunited at Malibu Equestrian Park for 6-year-old daughter Coco’s horse show. Just 6 days after announcing their shocking trial separation, the estranged spouses were affectionate, exchanging hugs and tender glances as they cheered on Coco’s event. “David would wrap his arm around her, and Courteney rubbed his back,” an onlooker says in the new Us Weekly, out Wednesday. Afterwards, the family celebrated at their $9.2 million Malibu home, where Cox, 46, lives with Coco (Arquette, 39, has been staying at their Beverly Hills property since the split). Does this bode well for the future of their 11 year union? “The thing they care most about is Coco,” an insider tells Us. “That’s what they’re saddest about. They don’t want to do anything to hurt her.”
I’m not confident at all that the couple plan to get back together in any romantic way. In fact, I can see how Courteney‘s relationship with David might evolve into something like the relationship her Cougar Town character enjoys with her ex-husband on the show. On Cougar Town, Courteney‘s character and her ex-husband are very good friends, united by their love for their son. It seems to me that that fictional relationship on the show is prolly very telling of the couple’s real life relationship. Both Courteney and David are co-executive producers on Cougar Town so, yeah, it makes sense. However the couple’s relationship evolves, I’m certain their daughter Coco will be their paramount concern.
