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.

Katie certain has that “Finally, I’m free!” glow about her. But perhaps I’m just projecting my own feelings; I learned a lot about Scientology during the time I spent assisting journalist Janet Reitman on her book, Inside Scientology, so I’m just tickled pink that Katie has decided to get her and her daughter out sooner rather than later. (If you haven’t read the book, by the way, you must. It’s fabulously written and impeccably researched.) [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
After watching Tom Cruise jump around on Oprah’s sofa like a complete dumbass, I think we all (well, some of us) knew his overly excessive enthusiasm for “falling in love” with Katie Holmes was a total hoax. While watching the video again of Cruise violently shaking a nervously laughing Oprah, it was obvious to many that Cruise’s firm and forceful grip on Holmes would not take hold for long. Plenty of rumors are flying about the TomKat divorce, announced this Friday — these entertaining hearsays could have you jumping on your couch, too! Keep reading »
The rest of the world seems pretty happy about the fact that Katie Holmes has filed for divorce from Tom Cruise. The Telegraph titled their article on the split “Marriage Impossible?” Meanwhile, Amelia wrote, “Well, her contract must be up. Five years after they tied the knot in Italy, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are splitting.” Sherri Reed of The Stir took things a big step farther, writing, “Thank God, Katie Holmes has finally escaped that sham of a marriage … Run Katie run! Suri, take off your heels and run with her!”
So I know that I am in the minority in actually feel pretty bummed about this parting. Yes, Scientology freaks me out and I very much dislike the idea of religion where you buy your way in. But still, these two really did seem in love. And it’s always sad to see that end, no matter what.
After the jump, nine reasons I’m sad that Katie and Tom are no more. Keep reading »
No, no, no, no, no, no, no. I refuse to believe that this is true. Star magazine reports that Avril Lavigne has is drying her tears from her breakup with (gag) Brody Jenner in the arms of the Prince Of Darkness. Marilyn Manson pulls some pretty amazing tail, including Dita Von Teese. Rose McGowan, and Evan Rachel Wood, but … Avril Lavigne?!?! Can’t he smell the fakery on her “I’m a bad-ass punk rocker!” schtick from three states away? Like, three big Western states? But no, Star claims the pair have been “platonic friends for years” and are now “hooking up” because they’re both single. “It’s not really serious yet, but they’ve definitely got a little love connection going on,” said the source. A love connection! Far be it from me to deny the world a love connection. I just think Avril could find someone a little less creepy and abuser-y, you know? Watch out, Tay-Moms, you’re obviously next. [Celebitchy] [Images: Splash News]
Well, her contract must be up. Five years after they tied the knot in Italy, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are splitting, People magazine is reporting. ”This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” says Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.” Suri is the couple’s six-year-old daughter. In recent weeks, Tom and Katie have not been seen out and about together, with Tom promoting “Rock of Ages” without his wife by his side, and Katie living in New York City with Suri. Cruise was previously married to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman. This was Holmes’ first marriage. [People]
