The comparisons were inevitable so is Katie Holmes’ decision to keep Suri Cruise out of Tom Cruise and Scientology’s clutches making Nicole Kidman look like an uncaring mother or was she just a victim of Tom’s overwhelming power?
You knew it was going to get back to Nicole somehow because she hasn’t talked about Katie and Tom’s divorce. I can understand why she wouldn’t but I can’t understand why she hasn’t be hounded by the press yet. Obviously it’s not in Nicole’s nature to talk. She’s barely said a word about her ten-year marriage to Cruise since their divorce eleven years ago. But that divorce was weird and got weirder as time went on. People whisper that Tom had something on Nicole which is why she was able to go free with joint custody but pretty much left the kids behind to be raised 100 percent by Tom and his Scientology minions. Both Tom and Nicole’s kids are true Scientologists in every sense of the word. Read more… Keep reading »
The latest tidbit to trickle out from the Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce: Katie won’t be cashing in by leaving Tom. Their prenup stipulates that she’ll leave the marriage with barely more money than what she brought in, but sources tell TMZ that’s fine because “money is not that important to her. She makes plenty on her own.” Click for more, including how that very prenup could prove the romance was indeed real. Read more…
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 »
