Is The TomKat Sham Out Of The Bag?

Hmmmm ... it seems like every time I have anything to say that has anything to do with TomKat I have to actually Hmmmm out loud ... and this time is no exception. I mentioned this morning that there were rumblings that an announcement would be made regarding the breakup of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and, indeed, Life & Style magazine broke this news this afternoon:

The insiders say that Tom, 43, and Katie, 27, plan to keep up the charade of a romance until after their baby's birth this spring. In the meantime, the couple will live in his Beverly Hills home -- though sleeping in separate bedrooms -- through the summer. Then, presumably, they'll announce a separation -- but Tom plans to buy Katie a home nearby so he can visit his child whenever he wishes. I'm actually surprised this news comes from the relatively new magazine Life & Style. If this turns out to be true (at this point I do not believe it 100%) then it will surely the a major coup for the magazine. [Source]

If true, I'm actually not surprised that this info comes out on Valentine's Day. If you believe the story that TomKat had a contract to "be together" for the sake of publicity then there would eventually be an end to that contract -- and a breakup on Valentine's Day is sure to garner lots of media attention. I dunno tho ... time will tell. I will not completely believe this news until we get official confirmation from either Tom Cruise or Katie Holmes ...

... but let's pretend for a minute that this is true. You know that Katie will never, ever be able to give a full disclosure of what really went down betwixt the 2 of them because I don't believe the Church of Scientology would allow her to. In any regard, I never thought that Katie was "right" for Tom so she would finally be able to live a (semi) normal life (I suppose). In the end, both parties got a LOT of publicity and became a world-wide phenomenon ... not bad for almost a year's work.

But, as I said ... I ain't buyin' it until I hear it straight from the horse's mouth. Time will tell ... and we'll all be watching.

Incidentally, I love how L&S mag kinda mimicked the US Weekly cover artwork from the Jessica Simpson/Nick Lachey breakup story issue ... they even used the same headline. We'll see if this magazine turns out to be right about huge story.

Wow ... anyways ... thanks to everyone who emailed me ... I was at my parents when I got first word and I had to rush home to throw out my $0.02. And now ... back to Valentine's Day celebrating!

UPDATE: TomKat responds: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE STATEMENT REGARDING TOM CRUISE AND KATIE HOLMES AND LIFE & STYLE MAGAZINE Los Angeles, CA (February 14, 2006) - In reference to a forthcoming cover story in the tabloid magazine Life & Style about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, it should be known that the story is 100% false. Mr. Cruise and Ms. Holmes are still engaged and are moving forward with their wedding plans, as well as planning for the arrival of their child. Despite the malicious fallacies put forth by Life & Style magazine, the couple is looking forward to a long and happy life together as a family.

All I can say is Hmmmm. [thanks Stephanie]


I <3 All Y'all!!!

First things first ... I want to wish you all a Happy VD today! It's not that I want you to contract a VD from anyone, I just want you to have an amazing Valentine's Day ... whatever that means to you! Here are some amazing celeb-oriented Valentines courtesy of the amazing blog Gallery of the Absurd:

The illustrations at Gallery of the Absurd are always so clever, so well drawn and so timely. It is one of my favorite sites out there ... and that is why I wanted to share these Valentines with you! I hope y'all have a great day! [Source]


So ... what did y'all think about last night's gripping episode of 24? The storyline keeps plugging along ... there were some tense moments but once you're familiar with the formula for the show you kinda know that there will be no resolution by the end of the episode ... so for me, it's more about seeing how the bad guys are gonna get away as each hour passes:

President Logan sucks so bad ... he's hard to even look at ... and he just keeps on being a complete idiot. My favorite quote of this episode was when the Prez said, "I made my decision. I am the President." Uh ... yeah ... he *always* takes the easiest way out of every decision - it's disgusting. I'm convinced that he is supposed to be based on a real person ... but who could it be?!? Thank the gods for Jack Bauer ... but you just know that nothing is ever easy for poor ol' Jack. He always knows how to make the right, touch choice (which is why he needs to be president one day). I thought that his rescue of the little girl was a nice touch. But ANYWAYS ... okay ... yes, the bad guys have to keep escaping but something huge needs to happen soon. Someone big needs to die ... I vote for the hobbit (Lynn McGill) -- he is irritating ... I don't think that I would be terribly upset to see him bite the big one. Bring it on 24 ... bring on the body count! [Source]

This year's Academy Award nominees were treated to a free lunch in Hollywood ... and it looks like a whole cavalcade of freeloaders showed up for the free grub and PR:

Yeah ... well ... I suppose if I were ever to be nominated for an Academy Award I'd show up at *every single function* made available to me. With the Oscars only a few weeks away I bet they're all pretty nervous ... I'm sure they didn't eat much anyways. [Source, thanks Leora]

Kelly Clarkson, fresh from her amazing Grammy night, hopped on a plane and flew out to Torino, Italy to perform on day 2 of the Winter Olympics:

Yeah, I bet she is having the best time of her life right now ... which means that some sort of scandal must be near. Don't be surprised if video surfaces of a drunk Kelly Clarkson harassing the workers of an Italian McDonald's. [Source]

Don't you love it when comic book superheroes become real life superheros? Check out these pictures of Lou Ferrigno (the ex-Incredible Hulk) as he is sworn in as an LA County Sheriff's Deputy:

Well ... he's actually a reserve deputy ... but that is better than nothing, right? Ferrigno will serve at least 20 hours a month, help recruit new deputies and work with the sheriff's Youth Activities League and the Special Victims Bureau, which assists abused children. So what next, Adam West (ex-Batman) to become a crossing guard? Linda Carter (ex-Wonder Woman) to become a circuit court judge? Arnold Schwarzenegger to become ... oh wait ... [Source]

Marilyn Manson and British model Lily Cole held a press conference in Berlin about the planned movie on author Lewis Carroll's life ... the movie is going to be called Phantasmagoria - The Visions of Lewis Carroll and will be the brainchild of Manson himself:

I love how MM kept his clothing as demure as possible so as not to overshadow Lily Cole. I can't believe that Manson has been borrowing clothes from Michael Jackson ... that's the scariest thing I think he's ever done. [Source]

Hmmm ... check out these pictures of Katie Holmes as she, you guessed it, goes out for coffee ... these are the most convincing pregnancy pictures I've ever seen of her:

Damn ... she looks a bit like Britney Spears did when she was carrying her Federspawn. Could it be? Could Katie really be pregs? Well, if she is there is no way that baby was fathered by Tom Cruise -- I just won't believe that. Hmm ... I still think there's shady bizznazz going on around here. [Source]

Yesterday we saw pictures of Bjork's little girl Isadora ... check out these pictures of her older son Sindri from his high school yearbook:

Did you know that Sindri attended high school in Minneapolis, MN? Upon graduation the Son of Bjork went back to Iceland. You can totally see the Bjorkiness in his face ... they are such a cute family. Can you imagine how fun it would be to have Bjork as your mom ... I bet she's really easy going. [thanks Unofficial J]

Speaking of celeb spawn ... check out these insanely awesome pictures from Ignore magazine of Katie Danza (daughter of Tony Danza) being a baaaaad girl:

Dude, she is so busted in these pictures. I have to tell you ... I'm actually grossed out by the glass pipe ... it's just so wrong. I bet daddy Tony is just lurrrrrrving these pictures ... I know I am :) BTW, please forgive the horrrrrible "Who's The Bong?" caption ... but how many other opportunities will there be to use it? [Source, thanks David & Justin]

Here are a few pictures from the photoshoot that Madonna did for Harper's Bazaar magazine:

The pictures are really cool. Head on over to to check out larger scans of these pictures. [Source]

Here are a few pictures from Ashlee Simpson's photospread in Elle magazine:

She looks really good in these pictures ... even with that haircut. [Source]

Willa Ford is making a bit of a comeback this year by getting back in the studio to record a new album ... but before she does that she wants you to see her in all of her glory in this month's Sex & Music issue of Playboy magazine:

Not long after her debut album Willa Was Here became a hit, the then 20-year-old singer decided to put her music career on hold. "Music became this corporate world where you have to compromise everything, and I'm uncontrollable," she says. "I was recording in New York, and I got in a cab, called home and said, 'I'm finished. I'm not doing this anymore.' I mean, I had so much more fun taking my clothes off for Playboy than I ever had sitting in a studio writing a song." It should come as no surprise that I was a huge fan of her songs I Wanna Be Bad and A Toast To Men (F The Men) ... it'll be cool to have more Willa music to dance to. The Sex & Music issue of Playboy magazine is on newsstands now. [Source]

And finally, Elizabeth Hurley is among the latest celebs to be featured in the Got Milk? campaign:

She looks pretty hot ... the child-sized footprints are a wee bit creepy but they're doing the "She's a hot mom" thing. [thanks Amy]

Les News:
After spending a lot of yesterday in a sleeping state I finally got to feeling back to normal ... right around the time Erik got home from work. We decided to have a nice Vietnamese dinner at Annam in Dearborn, MI before spending the rest of the night just hanging out. Poor Erik is getting sick so wasn't feelin' too great ... but it was very nice just being with him.

Tonight we're doing dinner at Mosaic in Greektown which I'm very excited about ... I've eaten there before and the food is amazing! I'm really excited. But before we go out I have a ton of things to do before I fly out to Amsterdam tomorrow evening. IEEEEE I'm geeked ...

So I guess that's it ... I hope your day is filled with love and all that other stuff ... I'm sending out lots of love to all y'all ... have a great day!!!


PS: There are rumblings in the InterWeb that In Touch Weekly is about to report that TomKat are dunzo ... I'm not sure if I believe it yet but ... we'll see!
