David Arquette on Dancing with the Stars

Posted on

David Arquette’s ex Courteney Cox and their daughter Coco were in the house to celebrate the actor’s first performance Monday on Dancing with the Stars — a Viennese Waltz with Kym Johnson that earned him 18 points. Afterwards, Arquette said he’s always around the Cougar Town star since they are business partners on several projects, including a comedy about an ensemble of friends.

“We sold it to ABC. I’m not sure how much I’m supposed to tell because it’s not written yet,” Arquette told reporters afterwards. “We always pitch things. We are doing The Celebrity Name Game with Craig Ferguson hosting. We’re constantly pitching and

working together. It’s part of our life.”

Arquette dug the opportunity to dance for his daughter. “It was so sweet to see her there. It’s a dream for her to see all these amazing dancers and then for her dad to come out with Kym and do this routine. She loved it.” — With reporting from Carrie Borzillo
