Noooooooooo!!! Once-eternal BFFs Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox have supposedly hit a rough patch in their relationship and are no longer friends. Courtney’s been hanging out with her Cougar Town costars Brian Van Holt and Josh Hopkins, while still in a trial separation with husband David Arquette, and Jen sees that as kind of a b!tch move.
A source close to Jennifer explained in Us Weekly, “There’s tension…Jen thinks Courteney is acting callous by running around with this guy but refusing to file divorce papers. Like she’s playing mind games with David. She hates watching Courtney do the same thing [that Brad Pitt did to her with Angelina Jolie].”
Of course this is a touchy subject for Jennifer. It’s obvious that she feels a deep parallel between her and David Arquette, as both seem like the kind of people who perpetually fail to wear the pants in a relationship and consequently get screwed over so much that they consistently mope around the house eating Chunky Monkey and watching Jerry Springer.
But I feel as if Jennifer might be overreacting just a little bit. Separation periods are, like, made for exploring your options. If something better comes along, then you just continue…exploring.
Regardless, I hope this is just a temporary fight! You can’t costar on a show called Friends and then just suddenly stop being friends. That’s just sad. And disappointing.
