Anyone who thinks USA Today's Hollywood coverage is overly fawning should take note of its story about last night's White House Correspondents' Association dinner, where two celebrities were among the paper's invited guests: husband and wife David Arquette and Courteney Cox.
Understandably, Cox was a no-show; after all, the two have separated. Addressing the elephant in the room (no, not Donald Trump!), USAT's Cindy Clark zeroed in on the couple's split, and Arquette's boozing. Here's his response:
"I just think everybody must be sick of (hearing about) it. I made a lot of poor decisions when I drank, so that's why I choose not to drink now. I'm really enjoying life and getting to know myself and coming to terms with myself and really understanding myself and having a level head about being able to make decisions that affect my life and my relationships with my wife and daughter."
