Busy Philipps and Courteney Cox are not feuding, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct a tabloidâ€™s claim that Cox is now fighting with the new talk-show host after the former â€śFriendsâ€ť starâ€™s appearance was allegedly canceled on â€śBusy Tonight.â€ť Weâ€™re told from all sides the story is untrue.
According to OK!, the â€śclaws are outâ€ť between the former â€śCougar Townâ€ť co-stars. A so-called â€śinsiderâ€ť is quoted telling the magazine how Philipps was initially â€śreally keen to get Courteney on board as one of her first guests,â€ť but as more buzz generated around the new late-night E! show, Cox was â€śpushed to the bottom of the pile.â€ť The outlet says itâ€™s not even a matter of when Cox will be rescheduled. The publication asserts it seems the actress will â€śnever make itâ€ť on the program.
The tabloidâ€™s supposed â€śinsiderâ€ť adds, â€śCourteney isnâ€™t stupid. She can see whatâ€™s happened and canâ€™t help but be hurt.â€ť The alleged tipster notes Cox got â€śbooted in favor of people like Vanessa Hudgens and Emily Ratajkowski.â€ť While very dramatic, the magazineâ€™s article is 100 percent inaccurate. Source close to Philipps, Cox and at E! all confirm on background that thereâ€™s no truth whatsoever to the feud story. Gossip Cop is told theyâ€™re both still friends, and there was no appearance that was canceled.
Gossip Cop is not entirely surprised by the falsity of the magazineâ€™s report since OK! has a track record for being wrong about Cox. Among the phony stories that tabloid has peddled was an article last week about how Cox is obsessed with tarot cards. Before that odd tale, Gossip Cop busted the publication when it wrongly asserted Cox and ex-husband David Arquette were battling over their daughter Coco. As we noted then, far from the parents clashing, Cox and Arquette have made sure everythingâ€™s â€śharmoniousâ€ť as they raise their teenaged daughter.
And before that, the same outlet published a whole story about how Cox and Johnny McDaid got engaged in a restaurant earlier in the year, but didnâ€™t provide one single fact or piece of evidence, including where or when the supposed proposal took place (or how no one else in the unnamed eatery knew about it). The overarching point is that the tabloid makes a lot of claims about Cox, and theyâ€™re often easily disproven. Much like those past reports, the latest article about how Philipps and Cox are feuding over a (nonexistent) cancelation on â€śBusy Tonightâ€ť is similarly untrue.
