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 Hollyscoop.com 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.
