David Arquette Dishes On His Split From Courteney Cox

David tells Howard Stern the couple haven't had sex "in months"

Yesterday afternoon the surprising news broke that Courteney Cox and David Arquette decided to split up after 11 years of marriage … a split that took place months ago but only yesterday came to light officially. Earlier today, Arquette called in to the Howard Stern Show to talk about the split and reveal when the break-up first too place and what has happened since. As you can well imagine, both Courteney and David have taken off their wedding rings. Read on for some deets from David‘s interview with Howard Stern:

David Arquette just called in to the Howard Stern Show — explaining EVERYTHING about why he and Courteney Cox agreed to take a “trial separation” … noting that they haven’t had sex in 4 months. Arquette explained that he and Courteney stopped having sex around one month before they started shooting “Scream 4″ in Michigan … and drifted from there. He also claims Courteney was the one who insisted they try separating right after their 11th wedding anniversary back in June … after she told David that she was “tired of being your mother.” David claims he still loves Courteney — and calls her one of the most amazing people on the planet. David is also adamant that he never cheated on Courteney before the split — but admits he has had sex with rebound chick Jasmine Waltz … his “one conquest.” Arquette also said he is hopeful he and Courteney can patch things up and get back together.

If you would like to hear this charming radio interview for yourselves, you can do so HERE. I will give David credit for his honesty … I doubt we’ll ever hear Courteney talking this candidly about the split. I completely believe that Courteney eventually got fed up with being a “mother” to David … he strikes me as the kind of man that needs coddling … and she strikes me as the kind of woman who won’t put up with that bullshizz for very long (tho, 11 years is a long time). Welp, it’s all out there now … I don’t know where David gets the notion that he and Courteney will get back together but … more power to him.

Now that this Courteney/David split is cooling down … how about that Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman split, huh?

Christina Aguilera & Jordan Bratman Are Dunzo!

US Weekly reports

While many of us, me included, are still struggling with the shocking news that Courteney Cox-Arquette and David Arquette are dunzo, US Weekly magazine is reporting today that another celebrity marriage is dunzo as well. According to the mag, Christina Aguilera and hubby Jordan Bratman have split … actually, have been separated for months … just like Courteney and David were. HMMM. At this point, the news has not been confirmed or denied by the couple … so take the report for what it is:

Singer Christina Aguilera is going solo. Though the pop star, 29, told UsMagazine.com less than a year ago that she felt “very blessed” in her union with music executive Jordan Bratman, 33, a source close to Aguilera tells Us the couple “have been separated for a few months.” And though Aguilera and Bratman — who met in 2002 (he was a producer on one of her albums) and wed in 2005 — have not yet decided whether to divorce, the source reveals, “they are now living apart, and they will see how that goes.” What went wrong? “They were very much in love,” explains the insider. “But over the last six months, it ­became clear they were more like friends than husband and wife.”The source adds that Aguilera even “­proposed their August trip to Italy to ­rekindle their relationship, but it didn’t help.” The duo remain united in their commitment, however, to son Max, 2. “He is their main concern,” says the pal.

I have to admit, I find this report a bit dubious … especially with its timing. At first read, it feels a bit like a story that is meant to capitalize on the confirmed break-up of Courteney and David. Because it remains unconfirmed and offers no real proof of a split, I’m hesitant to believe it … just yet. BUT, I was so surprised by the news of Courteney and David‘s split that, well, even tho I don’t necessarily believe this news about Xtina and Jordy just yet I suppose I have to consider that it may turn out to be true, just like Courteney and David. We’ll have to wait and see what Xtina has to say about this report from US Weekly.

UPDATE: Extra! TV is now also reporting that Xtina and Jordy have split (Extra! claims the couple are officially divorcing). Where there’s smoke … there should come an official statement one way or the other. Stay tuned …

UPDATE 2: Dang! TMZ is now joining the party claiming they’ve confirmed the Xtina/Jordan split is true. All that’s left is for us to hear from the couple themselves. I suspect an official statement may come later today.

Courteney Cox-Arquette & David Arquette Are Dunzo!

WTF?!

Right after I posted THIS item about David Arquette talking about the possible sub-title of Scream 4, news broke that he and wife Courteney Cox-Arquette have split up! To be honest, I head to read the headline twice because … OMG, how have these two split up? AND, as if news of the split weren’t shocking enough … the couple have apparently been on the outs for “several months” now! Dude … Courteney and David are dunzo!

Courteney Cox and David Arquette have separated after 11 years of marriage … and TMZ has learned they’ve been separated for several months. A source close to the couple tells us the two are “still friends” and they maintain a business relationship with each other. In fact, sources tell us … no lawyers are involved. The couple has one child together. David and Courteney met on the set of “Scream” sometime around 1995 … and were married in 1999. They are currently co-starring in the upcoming “Scream” movie due out next year. There was a hint of things to come back on September 25 when Arquette was spotted out, sans wedding ring.

AND … to add insult to injury, there is a reported connection to Lindsay Lohan in this sad split. Well, kinda. After the jump, find out what the connection is and read the official statement from Courteney and David about their dunzoness … More »

It’s Official: Danielle Staub Is Leaving ‘The Real Housewives Of New Jersey’

Bye Bye Bye

Last month Life & Style magazine broke the news that Danielle Staub, the most controversial castmember of the hit Bravo TV series The Real Housewives of New Jersey, had been fired from the show and would NOT be appearing in any future seasons of the show. Today we learn officially that Staub has, indeed, been fired from the show. Bravo aired part 2 of the reunion special for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which was Danielle‘s final appearance on the show. On her way out, Danielle hugged and handshaked (handshook?) with her fellow RHONJ castmembers in an apparent show of friendship … which you can see from these photos:

Bravo is cleaning house. The network announced Monday that Danielle Staub, the firestarter on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” would not be returning to the show. Throughout the tumultuous second season, Staub enraged Caroline Manzo, her sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita and family friend Teresa Giudice, though Staub seemed to make amends at the end of Monday’s reunion episode. “The reunion was Danielle’s last appearance on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” said Andy Cohen, Bravo’s senior vice president of original programming and development who also hosts “The Real Housewives” reunion shows. “We thought the hugs were a great way to end two seasons of bitterness between the women.” … While several women are moving on from the 4-year-old franchise, an entirely new group of “Real Housewives” in Beverly Hills are preparing for their close-up , debuting Oct. 14. Cohen promised a return to over-the-top opulence and a family dynamic similar to the New Jersey series with a pair sisters who happen to be connected to the Hilton family. The Beverly Hills cast includes: Adrienne Maloof, whose family owns the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas; Camille Grammer, ex-wife of “Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer; Lisa Vanderpump, a transplanted British restaurateur; Taylor Armstrong, wife of venture capitalist Russell Armstrong and Kim and Kyle Richards, former child stars and aunts of Paris Hilton. “There’s big, big, big drama and big, big, big tension,” said Cohen. “They all live near each other, and it’s amazing. You’ll see what it means to be someone’s neighbor in Beverly Hills. You have to walk a mile to get to your next door neighbor’s house. Adrienne and Lisa live across the street from each other. I’ve never seen wealth on that scale.” Bravo is constantly searching for new cast members, both in existing and potential locales, according to Cohen. That means interviewing and filming test footage of possible “Real Housewives” with their friends and families. Cohen said the network has attempted to wrangle a Texas edition for the past two years but “never hit it” with the right group of women.

And that, my dear friends, is that … no more Danielle. Personally, this decision to cut her out of the show makes no sense to me. The whole dynamic of RHONY is all the ladies vs. Danielle … without Danielle, what is left for the other castmembers to do? Do I really want to watch the bankrupt Teresa shop? Do I really want to watch Jacqueline fight with her bratty daughter Ashley? Do I really want to watch Caroline smother and baby her grown children? No, to all of those questions. It’s starting to feel like the Real Housewives franchise is losing it’s luster … not only is Danielle leaving RHONJ but Bethenny Frankel is leaving The Real Housewives of NYC, Lisa Wu Hartwell is leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta and crazy Lynne Curtain is leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County. The franchise will debut The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this Fall … further saturating reality TV with more old rich women dying to be famous. Meh. Danielle Staub may have been a bit loony but she was entertaining and truly made RHONJ worth watching … without her, I’m not sure it’s worth tuning in anymore.

Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth Are Dunzo . . . For Reals!

It is SO over

Back in June we heard that Last Song costars Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, who met and “fell in love” on the set of their film last year, had broken up … but it turns out that the couple were merely on the verge of breaking up. Today we learn from E! News‘s Ted Casablancas that Miley and Liam kinda broke up at the end of the Summer but then kinda stayed together for a while but have, at last, finally broken up for reals! Read on for all the gory, prepubescent details:

Sources confirm to E! News that, as Liam’s rep has announced to media, Miley and Hemsworth have broken up. Miley’s rep, so far, is not commenting … “Ever since she left for Detroit, Miley has been super focused on her work,” dishes an insider close to the former couple. “Liam wanted more, but she’s 17 and has other priorities right now. He’s been a distraction.” “[Miley's] not with anybody else,” emphasizes our source. Does that mean Liam could be? Some sources are claiming it’s Hemsworth who may not have been tamed during parts of their relationship … Sources claim to have seen Liam hooking up with another babe, not Miley, … in Huntington Beach where he was … partying during the US Open Surf Competition. As we told you, shortly after his shady behavior down south that weekend, Liam went to Detroit to visit Miley on the set of LOL, making it his second trip since she arrived July 12 to see his Cyrus. But it was short, and possibly not so sweet. “Both visits were only about 24 hours in length—by Miley’s choice,” adds our source. “She is not ready to settle down, and Liam’s not a happy camper.” Now before you bash the Australian hottie, whether Hemsworth was actually cheating on Miley may be up for debate. Friends to the former categorize their relationship as “on-off.” One of our insiders claims the two have broken up and gotten back together before without the media knowing, so Liam’s side hookup may be saved by a technicality. Still, as one source cautions the Miley-Liam tale may not be over just yet: “They’re both young. To say they are done forever would be premature, but it’s safe to say for now they are doing their own thing.”

LOL! Reporting on the torrid romantic relationships of teenagers is just silly … of course they’re gonna break up then make up then break up again. Still, I know some folks out there are very interested in Miley Cyrus‘s private life so there you have it. Homegirl is now single in Detroit Rock City. Personally, I think it’s her loss. Liam Hemsworth is a fine hunk of spunk and I can appreciate how a strapping young lad like himself might like to be in the company of fine young ladies while his popstar/actress/whatever girlfriend is out of sight. The course of young love never runs smoothly … that is, until one’s next bout of young love comes along.

Wyclef Jean Will NOT Become The President Of Haiti

Ineligibility bars Wyclef from running for office

At the start of this month, singer/songwriter Wyclef Jean formally announced his candidacy for the presidency of Haiti and then a week later launched a viral campaign in support of his bid for office. Today we learn that Wyclef‘s campaign is already dunzo because as a result of his ineligibility to be the president of Haiti he will NOT be allowed to run for the office:

Haitian American hip-hop star Wyclef Jean is not on the list of approved candidates who satisfy legal requirements to run in Haiti’s Nov. 28 presidential election, an electoral official said Thursday. The presidential bid by the 39-year-old singer-songwriter and international celebrity had triggered widespread enthusiasm in his poor, earthquake-ravaged Caribbean homeland. But it had been challenged on the grounds that Jean, whose primary residence is in New Jersey, did not fully meet the requirements, including a key one on Haitian residency. “He is not on the list as I speak,” said the member of the country’s provisional electoral council, who asked not to be identified. He said the electoral disputes bureau entrusted with settling challenges to candidacies had ruled that Jean did not meet several legal requirements, but he gave no details … There was no immediate comment from Jean, who earlier Thursday met President Rene Preval in Port-au- Prince, the nation’s capital. The provisional electoral council was expected Friday to formally publish the list of approved candidates to succeed Preval, who cannot seek reelection, having served two terms in office.

You know, at the end of the day, I think this is for the best. While I totally believe that Wyclef‘s heart is in the right place, I absolutely do NOT believe he is even remotely qualified to be president of an entire country. I commend him for bringing awareness to the presidential election in Haiti and here’s hoping that Wyclef will continue to work towards the betterment of his country. Perhaps he will help get another more qualified candidate elected into office. While I’m sure Wyclef is bummed he won’t be able to run, I honestly believe it’s in Haiti’s best interest that only the qualified people be allowed to run for the office of president.

Marilyn Manson & Evan Rachel Wood Are Dunzo . . . Again!

The on-again off-again couple are off-again again

Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood who last broke up back in November of 2008 only to get back together again in the Spring of 2009 and amazingly managed to stay together for a year AND get engaged have decided to break up … again. Shock of shocks … MM and ERW are, once again, dunzo!

Talk about on-again, off-again: Marilyn Manson and actress Evan Rachel Wood ended their engagement last week, a source tells PEOPLE. The newly single Manson, 41, then hit the town Saturday night, dining at L.A’s STK and clubbing at next door Boudoir with a group including a brunette named Twiggy and former Playmate of the Year Colleen Shannon. “They just broke off their engagement, and he needed a night out with friends,” says another source. While together, the shock rocker proposed to the True Blood actress, 22, during a January stage performance in Paris, according to reports. The two began dating in 2006 but then broke up in 2008, when Wood was linked briefly to actor Shane West. They reconciled for a short time, only to split again before becoming engaged last January.

Meh. It won’t last. I can feel it me bones … these two will get back together again. Just like you know when a couple isn’t meant to last … I’m just as sure that these two are meant to last. There’ll prolly be some back and forth, MM will prolly step out with some skanky chicks … but they’ll be back together again. Mark my words. I suppose we can mourn this dead relationship for now … but considering how gothy these two are together … it’ll resurrect again.

Danielle Staub Has Reportedly Been Fired From ‘The Real Housewives Of New Jersey’

'Life & Style' reports Staub was shocked to learn she was fired

Life & Style magazine is reporting today that controversial castmember Danielle Staub has been fired from the Bravo reality TV series The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Citing an “insider”, Life & Style claims that Staub as not been asked to return to the show for the 3rd season … and that she was “shocked” to learn she had been canned. Here are the deets as reported by L&S mag:

Life & Style has exclusively learned that controversial Jersey girl Danielle Staub has not been asked to return for season three of the hit Bravo show The Real Housewives of New Jersey. “Danielle was told that she would not be returning for a third season,” an insider reveals to Life & Style. In fact, Danielle’s finding out she was fired “came as a complete shock, and she thought she was definitely going to return to the successful Bravo series,” the insider continues. Danielle is not only known for her vicious catfights on-screen but also for her sex tape scandal, prostitution allegations, link to drugs and legal battles with other cast mates. The insider reveals that Danielle is currently trying to generate interest in a spin-off reality series about her life. Danielle told Life & Style at her birthday party on Aug. 10 in NYC, “I don’t know if there are talks right now about a third season of the show, but I’m more excited about talks of my spin-off than anything else.” A rep for the Bravo network tells Life & Style, “Bravo does not comment on casting of upcoming seasons of Housewives while current seasons are still airing.” Danielle’s booking agent had “no comment” on Danielle’s status on the show.

On the one hand, I can see how this report might be true … but it kinda doesn’t make any sense to get rid of Danielle … mainly because she is the ONLY point of contention on the entire show. If Danielle isn’t on the show, what the hell are the other BFF housewives gonna do? All of the other housewives are related, so there’ll be no drama there. It sounds like if Danielle is out then new housewives will be introduced … and then fake drama will have to be stirred up to keep things interesting. Like it or not, I think Danielle is a very important part of the show … without her, The Real Housewives of New Jersey isn’t worth watching. We shall see if Danielle has truly been fired but if so, I think it’d be a huge mistake on Bravo‘s part.

Jennifer Lopez Will NOT Be A Judge On ‘American Idol’

La Diva Latina demanded too much

A couple weeks ago we learned the shocking news that Ellen DeGeneres quit and that Kara DioGuardi had been fired from their job as judges on American Idol … in their places, it was widely reported that Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith would be taking their places on the judging panel. Fox made NO official confirmation that either J. Lo or Steven had been hired but it was believed they were both close to signing on to judge AI. Today, People magazine is reporting that sources close to the AI drama reveal that Jennifer Lopez will NOT be a judge on AI after all … reportedly because J. Lo‘s demands got out of hand and Fox decided to let her go:

Jennifer Lopez won’t be a judge on American Idol after all, according to a source close to the situation. The singer-actress had been closing a deal to be a permanent judge on the show for its upcoming 10th season but the deal fell apart. “Her demands got out of hand,” says the source. “Fox had just had enough.” With Simon Cowell and Ellen Degeneres both departing the talent search, the network had been pursuing a number of celebrities as potential judges, including Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler. But now that Lopez is out of the running, the network may be looking at their earlier top picks again. Other reports have said that the panel could go back to the original three-judge format.

HMMM … this is … interesting. Despite the fact that American Idol has been losing it’s luster, judging the show is still one of the most coveted jobs on TV right now. I cannot believe that Jennifer Lopez would do anything to jeopardize getting on the show … if this report of diva demands turns out to be true, then I guess J. Lo‘s reputation as La Diva Latina lives on. It’s a bummer … I liked seeing the softer, fun side of J. Lo swinging on the swings last weekend … I was actually looking forward to seeing her on AI. I’m actually very surprised Idol is having this much trouble filling the judging positions … I wonder who will be chosen to replace J. Lo on American Idol now.

Rachel Bilson & Hayden Christensen Are Dunzo!

The engagement is officially off for RayDen

After getting engaged to be wed in December of 2008 and then dropping off the face of the planet for the year that followed, news started to spread in June of this year that actors (and alleged lovers) Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen decided to end their engagement. Today we get official confirmation from the couple themselves that they are NO LONGER engaged to be married. It sounds like RayDen have finally decided to end their farce of a relationship and are, at last, dunzo!

Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen have officially ended their engagement. Reports surfaced a couple months ago that the duo were on a break, but now the split is permanent. “Yes, the engagement is off,” Bilson’s rep tells PEOPLE, but declined to provide details on the breakup. Distance was reportedly one of the main reasons for the split. With Bilson primarily in L.A., and Christensen in Canada, “It just wasn’t working out,” says a pal of the actress. Now Bilson is “focusing on her career, spending time with her family and just moving forward,” adds the friend.

Oh yeah, I SO knew that this was how RayDen was gonna end up. Back in June, when the rumors started that the couple called off their engagement, I wrote about how CERTAIN I was that these two would NEVER get married. It may have taken a couple of months but I knew this official announcement would come. This couple never ever acted like an actual couple and once they got engaged, their weird behavior got even worse. The news of RayDen‘s duznoness should come as no surprise to anyone … that is, if any of y’all even remembered that this odd couple were even engaged to be wed in the first place. IMHO, Bilson should see if former flame Adam Brody is single and available … you know, I’m just sayin’.
