Courteney Cox: I'm Not Getting Divorced

The actress opens up about her split from David Arquette: "Whatever is supposed to happen will be the best thing for us"

Courteney Cox is not ready to close the door on her 11-year marriage to David Arquette just yet. For the first time since their split, the Cougar Town actress is opening up about their highly publicized rift.

"I don't know what will happen, but this is not like we're getting divorced," Cox says in a new 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."

Still, Cox says that their time away from each other is necessary, even though the two have remained amicable.

"Sometimes you just realize 'Wow, we actually have grown apart,'" she says.

As for Arquette's decision to go on Howard Stern's radio show and spill the details of their marriage and their separation, Cox says she was hardly surprised.

"(David) is a kook. It's not shocking and Howard Stern -- he loves him and I'm a fan of Howard Stern," Cox admitted. "David is an entertainer and I'm sure the people who listen to the radio are entertained by his stories."

As for how she's handling the split from her hubby, well, she's leaning on her friends -- specifically Jennifer Aniston.

"We just have fun, we laugh, we're inseparable and it's great," Cox says. "It's funny, a lot of really close friends are kind of going through this right now or like Jennifer has gone through it. 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."
