Courteney Cox and David Arquette Briefly Reunite

Courteney Cox and David Arquette Briefly Reunite

Reunited! Courteney Cox and David Arquette were spotted together again in public.  

Less than a week after announcing their legal separation, the embattled couple stood side-by-side, talking and smiling.

So is it a sign that reconciliation is in the works? Not so fast. They were together to cheer on their 6-year old daughter Coco, who was competing in a horse show. But Cox was still wearing her wedding ring.

The estranged pair seems to be on good terms; at one point Arquette tenderly wrapped his arm around Cox and gazed at her adoringly.  

They were joined by actress Laura Dern, a close family friend. Dern says she was blindsided when her husband, musician Ben Harper, suddenly filed for divorce just three days before the Cox-Arquette split became public knowledge.

Dern is seeking solace with her friends, who are dealing with their own rocky relationship.

Meanwhile, Arquette made his first public appearance since the breakup at the Spike TV's Scream Awards, where he promoted new movie Scream 4 with cast members.

The actor greeted cheering fans while walking the red carpet in jeans and a leather jacket...but no wedding ring.

But even without the ring, it seems as if he's still holding out hope that he can save his marriage.
