Tom and Katie (Big surprise....not!)

Post by Merlin on Fri Jun 29 2012, 18:58

From People magazine

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes Are Divorcing
BY J.D. HEYMAN

Friday June 29, 2012 01:00 PM EDT
After five years of marriage, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

"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."

Cruise's rep tells PEOPLE: "Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy."

The Rock of Ages star, 49, wed actress Holmes, 33, in an Italian castle in November 2006. They have daughter Suri, 6.

This was Holmes's first marriage and the third for Cruise, who previously was married to the actresses Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two children, and Mimi Rogers.

Merlin your title of the thread made me laugh out loud - really loud! Very Happy

As much as I don't wish divorce on anyone, I feel for Katie cause she was really, really starry eyed when she first got together with him. If I remember her interviews at the time she mentioned that he was the guy she dreamed about.

So perhaps this is a great lesson for all - just cause someone's a big star and you see his persona on screen and you "think" you know what he's like based on how he treats his fans and his work ethic, that doesn't mean that's who he is in real life and what he'll be like in a relationship.

OMG did I just describe Tom or George. Fuck now I've got to go nurse my broken dreams and burst bubbles! NOT! Brahahahaha!

Watched a lot of The Way They Were tonight and it's sad but not unexpected. Wonder if Katie will change her religion? That was the reason Nic and Tom split IMO.

All three of Tom Cruise's marriages ended when wife was 33


Nicole Kidman, Katie Holmes and Mimi Rogers were all 33 when their marriages to Cruise ended.

By Gael Fashingbauer Cooper

Soon after news broke about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' plans to divorce, fans noted a weird coincidence. All of Cruise's three marriages broke up when his wife at the time was 33, and ended when she was 34.

Cruise's first wife was Mimi Rogers, who was 31 when she wed 25-year-old Cruise in May 1987 and 33 when they broke up in 1990.

Cruise then married Nicole Kidman, 23, in December of 1990, and then separated in 2001, when Kidman was 33.


Follow @ TODAY_ent

Holmes, 28, and Cruise wed in 2006, seven months after daughter Suri was born. And when word came Friday that Holmes had filed for divorce, those with a sense of Cruise history noted that Holmes was also 33.

Divorces, in each case, came when the woman in question had turned 34 (or so we assume with Holmes, who will turn 34 in December).

The coincidence didn't go unnoticed on social media, where no weird fact is too small to escape notice.

"How weird is it that Tom Cruise's three failed marriages have all ended while the women were 34?" tweeted Karen D'Souza. Others tried to find a connection between the number 33 and Cruise's well-publicized Scientology faith.

Now here's an interesting commentary from Enty Lawyer on Crazy Day and Nights....

http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2012/06/lets-talk-tom-katie.html

So, now that I have had a whole 24 hours to make some calls and talk to some people, this is what I know. The key here is Suri. As you have probably read, Katie filed for sole custody. Not joint. It can't be joint. Yes, I know that Tom and Nicole had joint custody but how did that work out for Nicole? Yeah, you think she even gets calls from her kids? I don't think so either. Joint custody can't work with Scientology. How can Tom Cruise tell all those broken up families they can't talk to their kids or ex spouses because they are SP, and yet continue to see Suri unless she is with him all the time. Now, here is where things get interesting. Is Tom going to fight? Probably not. We wouldn't want to see the real reason he can't have joint custody. Not just Scientology, but also a DNA test might come into play too. The time was now to end things. Suri starting school in the fall and a complete brainwashing was going to be inevitable. It is also no coincidence that the announcement was made while Tom was filming in Iceland. Pretty tough to pap him or ambush him there. If your spouse was asking for sole custody don't you think you would fight that? Today is the day to show my all time favorite photo of Katie & Suri.

The photo he mentions is at the link above.

Oh and speaking of Enty Lawyer he does his blind reveals in January and July. He's stated he will start them on Sunday July 1st. But I think he posts most of his reveals on July 4th. Always so very interesting when he does his reveals. Not like Ted the Tease this guy re-posts the blinds then does the reveals so there is NO confusion as to what the blind was and who he's actually talking about! Can't wait! What a Face

Normally I would not be happy to see a couple split up but in this case I am very glad for Suri's sake. Google "Village Voice," and read about Scientology's auditing procedures for children which some posters compare to psychological child abuse. Also surprising that in the USA kids can be sent to Scieo Schools, where they don't even learn basic math, let alone get prepared to pass college entrance exams. I'm sure this was a factor in Kate/Katie's asking for sole custody and filing for divorce in New York.

COS is not a good place. I used to fix the computers in several different locations around Hollywood, and once, as I was waiting for my contact to show, I witnessed someone getting beat as they confessed it was a good thing to be scientologist. I hope that Suri and Katie will not be exposed to this cult (it's not a religion in my opinion) any longer.

I have been reading lots of sites about the Tom and Katie breakup and the role the COS has to play. Over on Celebitchy there is an article about how members of the "church" have been making comments etc on the postings. I have my own story....when I worked in my first bookstore job L Ron Hubbard was still around...he died while I was working there. HIs book Dianetics was a very big seller at the time. It was also the time when his science fiction books "Mission Earth" books were being published. I would have these customers who would come in and request them then never pick them up....our home office wasn't buying them so this way the books got on our shelves. We got wise to it after awhile and started asking for deposits....I always thought they were very creepy....and after perusing Dianetics thought that was weird too....
Through this whole T&K saga I have always felt sorry for KH....hope it works out for her....

I also have my own COS story. My much older sister was in LASFS, a science fiction writing group. L. Ron Hubbard had a reputation as the absolutely worst writer ever. Tired of the insults, especially when his book did not sell, he figured out a way to change that fact. He made a bet he could start a religion based on his book.
