DAVID ARQUETTE'S SEX DRIVE WAS THE REASON BEHIND THE SPLIT: In a radio interview yesterday (Thursday), COURTENEY COX said her marital problems are the result of DAVID ARQUETTE wanting it all the time!!!

"Whenever I would, like, need consoling from David," Courteney said,"he could not literally put his arm around me for one second without completely getting a boner. (He'd be)like, 'Oh, I'm so sorry your dad's dying. Can we (eff)?'"

Courteney also said she hasn't had sex with anyone since the split -- including her "Cougar Town" co-star Josh Hopkins, whom she recently vacationed with.

"A fan grabbed her hand and she looked down," Shakira's rep says. "Her ring is still visible on her hand as she continued to walk through the crowd.”
