Smiling Katie Holmes Takes Suri Out For Ice Cream On Tom Cruise’s Birthday

Are you sick of the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorce scandal yet? I am nowhere near close to being bored of the topic. Oh, if they were any other Hollywood couple, I would be snoring by now, but given their close ties to the upper echelons of the Church of Scientology (specifically Tom’s BFF status with leader David Miscavige, who was best man at the couple’s wedding), this split has the potential to blow the lid off a lot of highly shady shit.

Anyway, yesterday was Tom’s 50th birthday and instead of spending it with his soon-to-be-ex wife, the actor flew to LA to be with his older children (adopted when he and Nicole Kidman were married) instead. Katie, meanwhile, was all smiles when she took little Suri out for ice cream in, ACK, my neighborhood yesterday evening. They were accompanied by friends and Katie looks happier in these photos than she has in any other paparazzi shots in months. Personally, I think she is a total badass.
