Arquette: I was joking about that breakdown thing

Remember when everyone was worried about David Arquette having a nervous breakdown? Yeah, he was just joking when he said that.

In fact, the same applies to another little tidbit that's been making its rounds: it turns out Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey won't be marrying in Italy.

Arquette and Minnillo have both spoken up about their respective reports, clarifying that neither statement made was meant to be taken seriously.

“It is being reported that I'm having a Nervous Breakdown. I assure you [I] am not,” Arquette wrote on his Twitter account. When Howard Stern asked Arquette if he was having a breakdown on his radio show Wednesday, Arquette’s response – “I believe so” - made rapid-fire headlines. But the 39-year-old actor says the statement was over-hyped.

“This stemmed from a joke I made on The Howard Stern Show and like many things in the Media it was mis-reported and sensationalized," Arquette tweeted.

He went on to thank those who have stood by him during a difficult time, and added, “I always speak my mind and I really don't care what people that don't know me may say – I'm a good person with a huge heart.”

Nick Lachey made a similar misfire when he suggested on Rachael Ray’s show that he and fiancé Vanessa Minnillo could possibly get married on New Year’s Eve while vacationing in Italy.

Of course, the word spread, and so at a recent party, Minnillo put a stop to it. "He was joking, we're not getting married in Italy," she told while at an event in Los Angeles.

"I think that's the game of telephone, he said it sarcastically and it was misconstrued in print,” Minnillo went on. “I think Rachael [Ray] got married in Italy so that's how the media spun it… [but] we're not getting married there."

At this point, they’re not sure about any wedding details; Minnillo said she hasn’t even started planning.

"I'm not being sarcastic when I say we're enjoying the bliss of it,” she said.

    I finished reading the article about Little Wayne giving a fan's mom a wheelchair & his race came up in a very unflattering way in several comments. And, here, I see people decrying Arquette's behavior in some comments, yet not once did his race become an issue., America. WOW.

    What did he say that his daughter needs shelter from? What did he say in general. The poor man is married to the ice queen who let another man fill his emotional spot in her life. Who is more childish? The immature kid who is hyper, but makes his way through the school day learning at his own pace. Or the strong student who appears to have things together, but faces some adversity and takes their ball and goes home?

    "Nervous Breakdown" is not an official psychiatric diagnosis; therefore does not exist. Sorry David, you'll have to come up with something else that you're not really having.

    Sounds like a really screwed up guy to me. Cortney did the right thing. I'm surprised she lasted as long as she did or what she saw in him in the first place. He needs some serious maturation.

    He is still a big baby and I'm surprised she lasted that long with him. I'm a female and I sure glad my bf isn't sensitive as him, then again I won't have given him the time of day if he was. Relationships and marriages end and yes it hurts like hell but you can't let it stop you from living. The world is full of people, go out and mingle instead of staying home and feeling sorry for yourself. What woman wants a weak man. Live and learn.
