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 »
“He has been Tom Cruise for 30 years. I know who I am and where I am and where I want to go, so I want to focus on that. … I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I feel sexier. I’m starting to come into my own. It’s like a new phase.”
– Katie Holmes is on the cover of ELLE (oh, I bet the editors are just overjoyed about that!) and in the interview, conducted before she filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, she kinda, sorta, maybe hints at her future independence. Mind you, I think anything Katie could have said about Cruise in this interview would be read as somehow alluding to her plot to leave him. That being said, given that she’s always sounded so … worshipful of her husband in interviews, this quotes sounds awfully cold and detached to me. Something tells me this interview was done with nary a Scientology handler around. [People] Keep reading »
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.

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 »
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…
When I first learned about Katie Holmes divorcing Tom Cruise, I wasn’t particularly upset or curious about what I was going to eventually learn about Scientology should Katie ever talk. Instead, the only thought on my mind was what the Tumblr “Suri’s Burn Book” would have to say about the news. As you can see from above, I was not disappointed. But the best part of Suri’s Burn Book? No celebrity children are off limits. See a few of our favorite posts from the blog after the jump, and check out all 47 pages of hilarity at the link. [Suri's Burn Book].

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 »
