Suri Cruise isn’t going to be a Catholic school girl after all. She’s about to book it to a new institution of learning, the for-profit $40,000-a-year Avenues World School that overlooks the High Line park in Chelsea, just blocks from Suri and Katie Holmes’ Manhattan home. The ultra-tony 215,000-square-foot school opens this fall for the first time. It’s going to specialize in a global learning perspective and bilingual education (so 6-year-old Suri will be experiencing half-day immersion in Spanish or Mandarin). Read more…
For the first time since his divorce from Katie Holmes was announced, Tom Cruise was spotted with daughter Suri in New York City today. I’m glad Suri is getting some alone time with her dad, but I just hope he remembered to leave his copy of Dianetics, the e-meter, and BFF David Miscavige at home. [Photo: Bauer-Griffin]
So I know people don’t really do the whole “team” thing anymore (as in Team Jolie/Team Aniston), but since we haven’t really come up with a comparably catchy fan-identifying term yet: Just to be clear, I am 100% Team Holmes. Obviously. But as crazy and scary and scary and scary and scary as I find Tom Cruise to be, I’m still not sure how I feel about the latest TomKat divorce rumor. See, “sources” say that Katie Holmes is considering changing Suri’s middle name to “Cruise” and her last name to “Holmes.” Not only that — “sources” also say that Katie hates the name “Suri” and has been calling her daughter “Scout” (after the To Kill a Mockingbird character, of course).
Look, I get it. I don’t blame Holmes for wanting to wash that man right out of her hair in every way possible. But Suri is already dealing with enough change. Does she really need a new legal moniker? Read more…
After what could safely be called a lonnnnnnng week, Katie Holmes celebrated her neatly settled divorce from Tom Cruise by taking their daughter Suri to the Central Park Zoo. (That’s Katie’s mom — who supposedly never cared for her son-in-law — on the left.)

The quickie divorce settlement between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes outlines in great detail and for years to come how they can behave around daughter Suri, reports TMZ. Among the available details:
- Katie basically gets primary physical custody, but Tom will have a lot of custodial time with Suri. Read more…
Because I know you guys are looking for yet another angle from which to explore this whole Katie Holmes/Tom Cruise divorce mess, we give you Katie Holmes’ No Doubt Prescient Supermarket Purchases. Now that she’s out of the grips of TC, girl’s been going to the supermarket like it’s going out of business. She’s been spotted at her local Whole Foods at least two times in the last six days, and here’s what she’s purchased… Keep reading »
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.

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.

When Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s divorce was announced last Friday basically no one was surprised (other than apparently, Tom Cruise). We’ve all been expecting the break up since the Great Oprah Couch Jumping Incident but somehow they just kept going. After six long years together, what finally sent Katie to her lawyer? According to TMZ, it’s her daughter’s safety.
Tom is famously a Scientology lover and Katie isn’t. She would deal with Scientology but she wasn’t signing up for every $8,000 seminar/procedure/sacrament it was offering. But, now that Suri Cruise is 6-years-old, her dad was ready to send her the Scientology boat camp Sea Organization. Kids as young as five can be sent to the military like Sea Org. I’m guessing she can’t bring her child-heels or get carried everywhere, which is something Katie would not approve of.
So what is it that Katie’s trying to save her daughter from? Read more…
