I realize that this is probably good news for all involved, but I, for one, am disappointed to learn that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have reached a divorce settlement just a little bit more than a week after Katie filed in New York City. ”The case has been settled and the agreement has been signed,” Holmes’ attorney Jonathan Wolfe told HLN. “We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life. We thank Tom’s counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution.” There is no word on what the terms of that settlement actually are.
So why am I disappointed? Because I suspect that one of the terms includes Holmes keeping her mouth shut about Scientology and how it might have affected her decision to leave Cruise. Keep reading »
The Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes split may not result in a nasty court fight after all. TMZ says lawyers from both sides have begun “calm” settlement talks on custody of Suri and child support, among other things. If all goes well, it would mean that Cruise would not file a divorce case of his own in California. Yesterday, the BBC suggested such a filing was imminent after talking to his lawyer. Read more…
Oh man, sooo much to love about this series of photos featuring Oscar-winner Adrien Brody and his girlfriend, Lara Lieto, sharing a frisky shower on board a yacht in Saint Tropez, France. First of all, what’s this position called? It seems hard on the knees. Also, is she washing his butt crack and balls? I hope she used plenty of soap. And lastly, is that a scrunchie in her hair? She must read Cosmopolitan. I heard they think it’s the perfect sexytime accessory. Click on to see all the hilariously invasive shots! [Photos: Bauer-Griffin]
Katie Holmes’ decision to divorce Tom Cruise is big news for many reasons, the least of which is the actual demise of one of Hollywood’s most famous couples. Let’s be real — how many of us actually took them seriously as a love match and felt a pang of “Oh but they were such a cute couple” secondhand sadness? Not I. No, the main reason why this celeb split is so, dare I say it, exciting, is the prospect that the attention it gets could shine a very, very bright spotlight on the Church of Scientology, of which Tom Cruise has been a member for some 20 years.

When you look at as many paparazzi photos as I do, looking for new, interesting shots to post, you start to notice trends. Amy Winehouse always wore ballet flats, for example. Paris Hilton always poses like she has to pee. And, as I realized this morning, Kanye West is always whispering to girlfriend Kim Kardashian. What’s so secretive that he often blocks his mouth with his hand, so paparazzi can’t read his lips? I decided to imagine the possibilities….
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.
