'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: David Arquette's public heartbreak

I have to say, I’m starting to feel really bad for David Arquette.

His confessions to Howard Stern grow more personal and even sadder as the weeks go on. He's revealed that he's heartbroken over his split from Courteney Cox, and that he’s drinking a lot more to deal with it. Even more upsetting, he said he’s on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

And that brings us to our "Showbiz" Flashpoint today: Does it surprise you that Arquette continues to be so open about his heartache? I’m not so surprised. He’s clearly in a lot of pain and it’s obviously important for him to be candid about it in a public way. Maybe part of it is he knows Courteney will see how bad he’s hurting.

What do you think? Are you surprised David Arquette is being so open about his heartache? Leave your comments below!

Also on our radar today:

Larry King’s final show tonight, twins for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, and the Kardashian Christmas photo – love it or hate it?

See you on "Showbiz Tonight" at 5 p.m. ET and again at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN today!

Watch Showbiz Tonight Weekdays Exclusively at 11PM ET on HLN.

    You can certainly see your enthusiasm within the work you write. The sector hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. At all times go after your heart.

    David will be just fine. After the show he went to Artie's beach house and banged Dana.

    I honestly can't blame her leaving him. I'm surprised she lasted that long with him. He seems like a big baby. Most men would go through the pain and just deal with it but he is out there talking about it like women do. He is like a litte puss. I never go out with men like that. You always have to be careful of what you say because God forbid you hurt they feelings.

    I'm not that surprised- but he did reveal he overshared to Howard in the past! Hopefully they can work it out- he seems so in love with Courtney still.

    He seems like a really nice guy...eccentric, silly and he talks too much, but a nice guy and a good father too. Courtney knew how he was when she married him and you don't divorce someone just because... Hopefully they can work it out because too many people rush into divorce only to regret it later...

    well:) they have not announced divorce yet, so there is still a chance to this marriage. They are in the "true love" category, and all they need is to reinvent themselves:http://celebs911.com/2010/12/12/messages-from-aboce-for-kendra-and-her-family-a-new-baby-on-the-way/.
