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 »
Ding dong the alien husband is dead! Katie Holmes is free at last to roam the earth as a normal human woman again. Rejoice! Now that her marriage contract is up and she’s announced that she’s divorcing Tom, she’s available to date normal human men again. She could pick up right where she left off and go back to her former fiancé, Chris Klein. Only, in the time that she’s been fulfilling her wifely requirements, Chris has been racking up DUIs and stuff. So …probably not. And Tom? Well, we assume he’ll be putting out a help wanted ad for a young ingenue whose career needs a boost. Must love Scientology! After the jump, we have some suggestions for them. Keep reading »
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]
