David Arquette Checks Into Rehab

by at . Comments

The following news doesn't exactly come as a surprise: David Arquette has checked into a rehab facility.

The actor, who separated from Courteney Cox in October and proceeded to have a public meltdown that included a lot of drinking and phone calls to Howard Stern, is "dealing with a broken heart," a source says.

"He is in there for drinking and depression, not hard drugs. Rehab was inevitable," an insider tells People. "He can't handle all the changes in his life. All his inner demons came out."

In one of his numerous calls to the aforementioned radio host, Arquette admitted to turning into "a maniac" when he drank.

It's unknown where he's receiving treatment or for how long, but Cox says "I really admire David and his choice to take charge and better his life. I love and support him."

That sucks.. at least he wants to get his life in order.
I don't care if someone's going into rehab for LSD** or crack, the fact that they're in rehab in the first place.. is a good sign for me, shows that they want to improve and turn their life around.

What a tool he is. Of course he has some excuse for partying it up all the time... ....I call it being a PUSSYHOUND. Hey David, when you are in rehab try not to call the Howard Stern Show as "therapy"- just as a piece of advice. WORD.
