David Arquette has “been drinking a lot”

In order to get past the pain of his split from wife Courteney Cox, David Arquette admitted to Howard Stern on his radio show, “I’ve been drinking a lot. [But I don’t] want to go into all that, because it’s really a personal, traumatic thing.” He also said he’s been seeing a psychologist once a week, because he was afraid he was having a nervous breakdown. “Everybody’s worried and concerned about me,” he added. “When I drink, I become a maniac.” However, he promised to lay off the booze for awhile. He talked about the split, saying, “This is the hardest thing anyone has to go through … You wake up and the reality hits you.” He added: “[Courteney] said she doesn’t want to be my mother. I kind of need a mother right now. I need a girl to come bring me some soup and make sure I’m all right. I like that, and I take care of my ladies, too.”

    He sounds like a child, not a man. If he grows up, I bet she’d take him back, but his actions since the split up just prove he’s not a mature person.

    Sure to a certain extent but it also proves that he still really cares for her. Something else to consider is if he has some sort of learning disability it is common for those people to get sidetracked and not focus on small portions in day-to-day tasks. This can often come off as needing to be supervised when that is not the case. I often wondered the specifics of Courtney’s comments and of course if they were even the truth.

    He loves her. Courtney Cox is awesome and he totally lucked out being with her. But like most Hollywood stories, they end. This one I really was rooting for tho. It seemed they were actually a good couple. The outside world will never really know the actual truth about peoples personal lives, but it obviously was not meant to be.

    samantha, wouldnt you sound like a child if you were depressed because the love of your life just broke your heart? i can understand why he wants to be taken care of right now.

    The last thing he says, about needing a mother right now, is understandable. It’s the drinking to excess and screwing other women that makes him seem immature. And since she broke up with him because she said she doesn’t want to be his mother anymore, he probably is pretty immature.
