‘Dancing with the Stars’ alum David Arquette talks love life (video)

David was recently a "Dancing" star.

Mrs. Carter – Way to work it out for the sake of the family!

David Arquette has been separated from wife Courteney Cox for over a year now, but the two have not only managed to keep the peace together, but have even former a friendship that is standing the test of time. Just over the past six months, Cox (and the couple’s daughter Coco) made appearances in the audience on “Dancing with the Stars,” and David is now set to even appear on the season finale of Courteney’s “Cougar Town” in a guest-starring role.

So how do they stay so close despite the heartbreak of their marriage not working out? In an interview on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Arquette credits much of their relationship to the two parties working to make each other a priority. (This is probably why you still see the two parties out with each other occasionally.)

As for Arquette’s own relationship status, he tried to describe it in one word by saying “wow.” The actor recently split from “Entertainment Tonight” reporter Christina McLarty, with the time the two spent apart serving as a primary reason. (McLarty works in New York, while Arquette is in Los Angeles.)

David also now has an interesting new connection to Ellen — he is going to be a star on the new pilot “The Smart One,” which also stars the daytime host’s wife Portia de Rossi along with Malin Akerman. (Ellen is serving as an executive producer on the project.)

Do you think David and Courteney’s relationship should be a model to other separated or divorced couples?
