Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes: Who cares?
I know it ain’t golf, but damn it, I’m sick to bloody death of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. Star whore Oprah gushed all over Cruise when he appeared on her show. She was so ecstatic that he was so ecstatic and the audience was just so, well, ecstatic.
WHO THE HELL CARES?
Like anyone was really worried that a 42-year-old guy with $100 million in the bank and his pick of women in the world wouldn’t find happiness? And now we’re all supposed to be that much closer to heaven because he’s hooked up with a 26-year-old hottie?
Well excuse me for not giving a rat’s ass.
And excuse me for wondering how anyone with half a brain would give a rat’s ass.
And excuse me for recalling a theology prof of mine years ago who showed me the book Bare-faced Messiah: The True Story of L. Ron Hubbard (Michael Joseph 1987), in which the science fiction writer and “founder” of Scientology was quoted as saying something to the effect that writing books for a penny a word was for schmucks, and if you really wanted to get rich, you should invent a religion. So all I can do is chuckle when dopes like Cruise, a devout Scientologist, falls for this psycho-theo-drivel.
Hmmm….maybe writing golf articles is for schmucks, too. I damn sure know that paying attention to ‘Tomatie’ is.
And that goes for Tour pros, too. Just play good golf and shut the hell up. (There—I got some golf in after all.)

You almost want to yell in his face: "OK, she completes you. Now shut up!"
If you really don't care, why introduce it to a golf site?
I know too many people who have been members of the Scientology cult and who had to be deprogrammed to have close to normal lives.
My sister wasn't so lucky. She was one of the unmentioned many. After Scientology used her and her money up and she had nothing left and was living on the edge from food deprivation, they kicked her out. This pushed her over the line into mental illness (20+ years ago) and she has insitutionalized ever since.
Scientology might be good for people who give lots of money and publicity to the cult -- but it's bad for them if they have nothing left to give.
To all columnists/comedians/critics/journalists wake the hell up to the reality that Tom and Katie are now OLD news.
Isn't there anything more compelling to write about, joke about, criticise? Really.
to do a hatchet job on the life of
Hubbard. This book is not anywhere close to being objective.
And now your opinion of Scientology is derived, not from having read anything to do with scientology or dianetics, but from a quote in a book that was intended to belittle and ridicule hubbard and all his work,
wow - how about that for objective journalism.
He certainly didn't do anything positive for himself, his Scientology cult, or his credibility as a resonably intelligent / rational person. As it stands now, I care about Cruise's "insight" into these issues about as much as I care about Patricia Heaton's feelings toward the late Terri Schiavo's husband.
And as for this "romance" with Cruise & Holmes? The reason it's so unbelievable is that it really DOES look like some arranged union - not by publicists, but by Scientologists.
I'm sure you've heard about Scarlett Johansen's bolting from her lead role in Mission Impossible 3, thanks to the surprise "welcome to Scientology" lunch Tom arranged for her. (Consider yourself lucky, Scarlett: you might have been in Katie's Stepford-esque shoes if you hadn't have gotten out of there!)
Cruise is certainly an enigma. He gives the same performance in every film - as if the character just transplants from one script to another. He files a lawsuit every time someone says something he deems less than perfect about him. (To sue because someone questioned he was homosexual? I guess we know what he thinks of gay people).
He irritates the crap out of me. I'd love to see War of the Worlds if he weren't in it. (I'd love to see Batman Begins if Holmes didn't annoy me so much now.) Why Cruise for these roles? Why not anyone else? ANYone?
I hope Hollywood gets as sick of Cruise as I am. There are more talented / less irritating actors out there who should play his roles.
By the way, I'm REALLY going to make a point of seeing more Nicole Kidman films. She obviously knows how to correct a mistake when she sees it.
Does this ego maniac have a clue about real life. He lives in a bubble where everyone kisses his butt all day. Somebody please beam him up!
e=mc2 drivel), wealth=intelligence.
Over here we have a saying "short man syndrome " and he fits the bill perfectly . I reckon he should try some anti depressants to get over it ....his huge insecurities i mean .
(Monica and Sarah ....all the best

a cute couple, but they need to give it
a rest. i'm not hating, but come on,
it's like ok yall are in love, we get the
picture! i swear everytime i see them,
they're either making out, or gazing
into each other's eyes. it gets old
i mean i've been in love, very in love,
but i didn't feel the need to make out
that much! tom also seems more in love
than katie is. she's usually calm and
collected when she talks about him, and
he seems just head over heels. she mighth
be using him for publicity, and if she was
i wouldn't be surprised. also, he's filthy
rich, and if they ever break up or anything,
he's obligated to give her millions! i don't
know.....but maybe they're in love.
perfect. They get soooo much attention
that I think they may get sick of hearing
about themselves! "OH, I'm on ET again
tonight"... "look how great I am" ... "I
gave the wedding of a life time"... yada,
yada, yada... Most of Hollywood is like
this. They say they hate the press, but
I personally don't think a lot of them,
that have been given a lot of attention
for years, such as Tom Cruise, would know
what to do without the attention. They
don't hate it! They try to keep things
secret (like Suri) or a mystery because
they think their so great. They need to
realize they put on the their pant, eat
and fart like all the rest of us... truely.
