Breakup: Courteney Cox and David Arquette
A day after Courteney and David's October announcement that they had amicably parted ways, the actor called into Howard Stern and revealed, among other things, that Courteney had grown tired of being his mother; that they'd separated several months before; and that he'd subsequently slept with a waitress (she unflatteringly described the encounter as "quick and painless"). Meanwhile, rumors linking Cox to her "Cougar Town" co-star Brian Van Holt were roundly denied.
