On the rocks alert:
The Courteney Cox-David Arquette break up

Publications: People, National Enquirer, Us Weekly, Weekly Life & Style, OK!, In Touch, Star
Date: 25 October 2010

Fresh trash on Thursdays! A record for gossip mag interest has been shattered!

The most coverage any story got in a single week was six headlines when Chelsea Clinton got married. That record has now been eclipsed by the break-up of Courteney Cox and David Arquette, who were married for 11 years, to the amazement of many. Here are the seven different takes.

  • People: Courteney and David why they split after 11 years: The Inside Story... As David admits infidelity and bad behavior, the couple reveal they have been living apart for months. How the marriage fell apart.
  • In Touch: Courteney's heartbreak (exclusive!) pictures of David's new woman
  • Weekly Life & Style: Courteney and David split: Who cheated?
  • OK! Courteney and David: Why they split
  • Star: Courteney and David split: Her other man
  • National Enquirer: Courteney Cox agony: has been replaced with her look-alike
  • Us Weekly: Courteney and David: shocking split!
Seven covers in a single week will be a hard record to break. The Sun doesn't do real news and the Globe and Examiner do not tend to be interested in celebrities the other gossip rags are interested in, their audience skewing much older. The only stories I can think of that might make more covers would be if the Clintons, Bushes or Obamas divorce.

And oh yeah, if Sarah and Todd break up.

I can think of no living soul who ever thought Courtney Cox marrying that talentless slab of crap was ever a good idea.
If she screwed around on him, who would blame her?
And if he screwed around on her, it only proves that he's an imbecile.
