David Arquette Apologizes for Oversharing

Newly single David Arquette regrets telling the world the juicy details of his post-Courteney Cox hook-up. The actor appeared on Howard Stern's radio show yesterday and detailed his bedroom exploits with a waitress named Jasmine Waltz. Now he wishes he hadn’t. In a series of tweets Arquette writes, “Thank you all for your Love and support at this time. I'm trying figuring out how to be the best person I can be but it's been a process of trial and error. I went on Howard Stern yesterday to provide clarity and honesty about what I'm experiencing but while doing that I shared too's alright for me to be honest about my own feelings but in retrospect some of the information I provided involved others and for that I am sorry and humbled.” The about face was apparently not directed at Cox who reportedly knew of Arquette’s dalliance with the waitress.

Apple Doesn’t Like Sexting

Apple has declared a war on sexting by creating software that can block an iPhone from sending naughty texts. The patented technology is intended for parents to prevent their children from sending explicit text messages. According to CNN, “Messages containing blocked material either would not be received or would have the objectionable content redacted.” The technology differs from other text blockers as it can be programmed to a child’s age and grade-level. The technology could also have some educational value, such as ensuring the correct use of grammar. The patent does not censor the sending or receiving of explicit images. It is unknown when Apple will make this product available to parents. [CNN]

TMZ has reported that Atlanta MC T.I. was a huge helping hand when it came down to talking a suicidal man off the ledge of a 22-story building in his hometown today. In the same building where Ryan Cameron's Radio Show on V103 is produced, cops responded to a 911 call about a man who was threatening to jump off the very same roof. Apparently T.I. was listening to the radio show and called Ryan Cameron to see if he could do anything to assist in the situation. T.I. then contacted the police and recorded a video message to the man and the authorities actually played it for him on the roof. The jumper saw the video, decided not to take his life, and even met with T.I. in the lobby after. Priceless, y’all. Priceless. [TMZ]

Zach Morris Gets It On With Mary-Louise Parker

Remember Mark-Paul Gosselaar? He's the actor who played a certain Zach Morris on a 1990s TV show called Saved b--who are you kidding, you know exactly who he is. Anyway, now that we can admit a certain shared fascination with Mr. Belding's crew of zany teenagers, it is our pleasure to inform you that the lucky bastard got it on with Mary-Louise Parker in a recent episode of Weeds, and the result was...surprisingly awesome. Seriously, you should check this out. There's hair-pulling and everything. [Warming Glow]

Cleveland Cavaliers Prove Breaking Up is Hard to Do

The Cleveland Cavaliers have released their 2011 season calendar in order to let fans know about important home games and bank holidays. In order to create some extra excitement for the season the PR department decided to put a picture of the game's MVP, LeBron James, on the cover. If only he still played for the team, it probably would have been a great Christmas gift for Cleveland natives who have already given up on the Browns. [Clevescene]

Wayne Gretzky's Son Excells at Hockey, Only with Baseball Bat and Glove

Trevor Gretzky, whose Dad is huge in Canada, has committed to play baseball for San Diego State University. The talented first baseman is one of the top prospects in the country and is expected to be an immediate contributor to the program. If he's able to win four World Series and half a dozen MVP awards he may almost be as successful as his Dad. Yes, Trevor, the bar is high. [CBC]
