Maybe Courtney Cox should call Dr. Phil. Then, she’d receive the marital therapy she craves, while possibly marrying a Playgirl beefcake.

We kid, Courtney. The Gossip actually finds it admirable that you and husband, David Arquette, are open to the benefits of counseling. The former Friends star talks about how this revelation came to be in an interview with Life magazine.

“We were just in Sardinia for a vacation,” Cox said. “We got into these fights two nights in a row over stupid stuff. But I could see how relationships break up if you don’t go, ‘What are we doing!?’ So we went to a therapist, and he broke it down for us.

Call us crazy, but Britney Spears and Kevin Federline may need similar help.

Another key to Courtney and David’s seven-year marriage is unheard of:

“We just really like each other,” Cox said. “He gets a kick out of me, and I get a kick out of him. We’re a good balance for each other. He likes the fact that I’m so gregarious — although it can also make him very uncomfortable — and I like the fact that he is so sensitive. We’re a great team.”

That’s advice we guessing Cox gave good pal, Jennifer Aniston, on her impending nuptials to Vince Vaughn.

Cox also reveals that she’s seeing a therapist on her own, while stating that little Coco, 2, may soon have a new brother or sister.

She is almost 42, after all. Prime baby making time is passing her and Arquette by.

“We’re not trying yet,” Cox said. “We’re revving up the engines. I’m only ready ’cause time’s a-ticking. If I was 34, I’d wait another year, because I like those three-to-four-year gaps. I want Coco to be helping me with the next one. One child is hard. Two is probably harder.”

Probably. But if you need any help revving up those engines, Court, Scarlett Johansson and Josh Hartnett sound like they can offer a word of wisdom or two.
