UPDATE: Courteney Cox has responded. Read her statement here.
The new year hasn't brought much fortune or resolution to David Arquette just yet. The 39 year-old checked into rehab, which a source close to the actor say has been much needed, considering his recent separation from wife Courteney Cox.
The reason for admittance is surprisingly normal -- at least for Hollywood standards: "He is in there for drinking and depression, not hard drugs. Rehab was inevitable. He is dealing with a broken heart. He can't handle all the changes in his life. All his inner demons came out," the source said.
No word yet from Courteney, who has said that their separation does not mean divorce.
Maybe David ought to ask Lindsay for some advice; she ought to have enough experience with rehab facilities. She may even invite him to one of her Betty Ford parties.

David Arquette took his daughter Coco to the beach to explain his marriage problems.
The actor and his wife Courteney Cox-Arquette - who announced on Monday that they had embarked on a trial separation “some time” ago - wanted to be honest with six-year-old Coco about their split so went for a picnic to discuss the situation.
“We went to a beach and had a picnic. I explained to her that we’re grown-ups, and a lot of the time when grown-ups are growing up, they need to figure out their lives. Sometimes that takes each other having a little space,” he explained in an interview with Howard Stern.
UPDATE: You can read Arquette’s apology for the interview here.
I may not know Courteney Cox, but I’m guessing she’s the type of girl who wouldn’t appreciate her estranged husband doing something like this … especially if he wants to reconcile.
One day after news of their separation leaked out, a bitter-sounding David Arquette decided to make his private marital issues public. And how did he choose to go about doing that? By talking to Howard Stern.

Shortly after news of Courteney Cox and David Arquette’s separation got out, the couple of 11 years released this joint statement:
“We have agreed to a trial separation that dates back for some time. The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage. We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply.
As we go though this process we are determined to use kindness and understanding to get through this together. We are comfortable with the boundaries that we have established for each other during this separation and we hope that our friends, family, fans and the media also show us respect, dignity, understanding and love at this time as well.”
