In the new issue of Harper's Bazaar, Courteney Cox discusses her trial separation from David Arquette. "If [the marriage] doesn't work out, I will have huge waves of pain about failing in that department," says Courteney. "But right now I don't have that because I don't know what the future holds and I guess because I have strong feelings for him." She denies that she's having a relationship with her co-star Brian Van Holt, and says of David's recent fling,, "He absolutely did nothing that wasn't in the boundaries of what we set for our separation, so there's nothing to judge. I may not have known about it, but that's the only difference." [Us]

And you really do have to kind of take the beads apart and get them in a place where you're ready to throw them, so he was quite prepared. It was like what chefs do." [N.Y. Mag]
