Courteney Cox Not Surprised by David Arquette's Oversharing

Arquette dished about their sex life and more, but sources say Cox wasn't the least bit shocked by his TMI interview

Fans may have been shocked to hear David Arquette spill so many dirty details to Howard Stern about his separation from wife Courteney Cox. But one person who wasn't surprised? Cox, herself.

Arquette dished on everything from him sleeping with another woman to Cox withholding sex while on the set of their upcoming movie Scream 4, but a source close to the couple says Cox, 46, expected it. "She knows who David is and what he's like," the source tells People. "She married him. All that he said, and how he said it, that's David."

But the source adds that while the Cougar Town star was disappointed with Arquette, 39, for his lack of discretion, she's not letting it get to her. "Nothing surprises her at this point," the source says. "What's amazing about Courteney is that she doesn't get caught up in all the ridiculousness." 

According to the People, Arquette's TMI was merely a defense mechanism. "He felt really attacked and his first instinct was to defend himself," the source says. "He was totally bombarded with a lot of negative attention, most of which was inaccurate."

Apparently the actor felt it was important to clear his name. "It's David's instinct and way of reacting to tell the truth," says the source. "He wanted to make it clear that he had been faithful for 11 years and has only been with another woman (Jasmine Waltz) after he and Courteney were (separated)."

And though their split was shocking to many (including us!), insiders saw it coming. "They haven’t been happy for a while and have been trying to make it work but they just can't do it anymore," the source says. 

Are you surprised Courteney Cox is not mad at David Arquette for revealing so much? Chime in below!
