MAIDEN VOYAGE Courteney Cox wants to put to rest the rumors that her three-year-old marriage to her ”Scream” costar David Arquette is on the skids just because she recently dropped her married name. In an interview in the December issue of In Style, the artist formerly known as Courteney Cox Arquette says she made the change in homage to her father, who died of skin cancer last year. ”When I was a kid, I wanted to change my last name so badly because I didn’t like it. Now that my dad’s gone, I don’t want to lose it,” she says. ”It’s not an issue for David. I am an Arquette, but I’m also a Cox. My social security card says Courteney Cox Arquette. And when we have children they will not be Cox-Arquettes, they will be Arquettes.”

That could be soon, if she has her way. Like Jennifer Aniston, Cox hopes to start a family after ”Friends” wraps next spring. ”It would be a great transition for me to have a child,” she tells In Style. Despite two previous miscarriages, she says, ”Even though I am 38, I don’t feel it, and I know I can get pregnant. I’m not panicked about it at all.” She adds, ”Besides, David is meant to have children. He’ll be an amazing dad. He has so much patience and such an amazing heart.”

BLOND AMBITION Lisa Kudrow is not a ditz, but she plays one on TV. At least for a little while longer, since she says that television’s tendency to typecast has probably ruined her chances of getting a role as anything else on a series or even a mainstream movie. ”It would be hard to overcome my image as a ditz after playing Ursula on ‘Mad About You’ and Phoebe on ‘Friends,”’ the Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Sun-Sentinel quotes her as saying. ”I think that my future most probably lies in small, independent films.” (Well, except for that big, studio-financed film ”Analyze That,” in theaters Dec. 6.) After ”Friends” ends, the Sun-Sentinel reports, she also wants to have a child, just like her castmates, though it won’t be her first. She and husband Michel Stern already have a 4-year-old son, Julian.
