Dancing with the Stars contestant David Arquette has confirmed that there's a new lady in his life. On Wednesday's Howard Stern Show, Arquette -- who has been separated from wife Courteney Cox for one year -- admitted that he's dating The Insider reporter Christina McLarty.
"She's adorable," Arquette told Howard Stern, though he stuttered when Stern asked if he was "in love."
"We try to see each other as much as possible," said Arquette, 40. ""I'm not one to run around with different girls. I like someone that makes me feel good and that I can make feel good."
The actor says that he met McLarty, the ex-wife of infamous Girls Gone Wild mogul Joe Francis, at a boat party. The pair had their first public outing in July, when they raised eyebrows by clinging to each other at San Diego's Comic Con. Now they're maintaining a long-distance relationship, since Arquette is based in Los Angeles and McLarty lives in New York.
Does this mean he's giving up on reconciling with Courteney? It seems like it.
"We're in the friend zone," Arquette told Stern.
They may be in the "friend zone," but they're still married, and they still own that production company together. In previous months, Courteney and David have both expressed hope that they'd be able to reconcile. Will Christina McLarty be the nail in the coffin of the Cox-Arquette marriage?
