Really ‘Kate,’ you should have known

Jessica Allen lists five things about Tom that were a tip off



It’s only been a few hours since People magazine confirmed that the couple has split but already reports are flying about why and how. (As always, I will go here for the most erudite analysis of the event.)

Was the five-year Xenu contract up? Was it his recent turn in Rock of Ages? The platforms?

In any case, here are five things that probably should have tipped Katie–oops, I mean “Kate”–off.

  1. Jumping on Oprah’s couch like a maniac. It started off sort of funny, I guess, this 44-year-old dude about to marry sweet Joey from Dawson’s Creek, 16 years his junior. But it quickly descended into a dark, deeply disturbing display of a psychotic.
  2. Uh, not to come down on the religions of the world or anything, but Scientology? If you’re not convinced the cult-like organization, which has managed to reportedly enrapture 8 million recruits–including countless Hollywood stars and actor-wannabees–isn’t nuts, then give this New Yorker story about director and screenwriter Paul Haggis, one of the few former devotees who managed to leave the church, a read. It’s long, but oh-so-worth-it.
  3. Remember back in 2005 on the Today show when Matt Lauer asked Tom about criticizing Brooke Shields for taking medication for post-partum depression? “I’ve never agreed with psychiatry, ever,” said Cruise, referring to it as a pseudo-science.  “Before I was a Scientologist I never agreed with psychiatry. And when I started studying the history of psychiatry, I understood more and more why I didn’t believe in psychology.” Even though he apologized in 2008, it still seemed like a bonkers move.
  4. Here’s a doozy: Tom tried to back-date his separation from Nicole Kidman, who apparently had no idea he was leaving her, in order to save a buck: Once you pass the decade mark in California, more money is up for grabs when it comes to divorce. So even though they reportedly renewed their vows around Christmas, when Cruise filed for divorce the following February, he is said to have said the marriage had been over by early December, just missing their 10-year anniversary. She played hardball, and reportedly won. What could be worse? Oh wait, found it: Kidman miscarried right after the separation and Cruise was reportedly cold-hearted about it.
  5. Have you ever seen the 1985 fantasy film Legend? That was just one year before Top Gun, but Cruise looks so young in it. There’s also a unicorn, a dwarf and and Lord of Darkness whose look always deeply disturbed me as a kid. I haven’t figured out a concrete reason why his role in this Ridley Scott-directed movie should’ve tipped Holmes off, but I still think there’s something there, isn’t there?




Really ‘Kate,’ you should have known

  1. No offense to Kate, but the fact that he would have married a girl who used to have it picture up on her wall when she was 10 is creepy.

  2. Hey the guy bought his own ultrasound machine when she was pregnant. There were SO MANY signs…..Katie and her family it seems only paid attention to the dollar signs. I think she is going to come out of this with a big pay out.

  3. And there is a battle coming her way, it’s gonna get ugly and that poor child is gonna be a mess.

    • There will be no real battle Tomboy will buy her off to maintain the facade of a straight up guy!

      • Perhaps, but I think it will be a real battle over their child.

  4. How is this celebrity divorce different than any other one? Is it because of the religion?

    That’s no different than any other religion either.

  5. I’ve read a few of these “how we could have seen it coming” articles that always miss the elephant in the room — he’s GAY. It’s an open secret in the industry and clearly a contractual marriage to hold his image and generate an heir. Just as Tom back-dated his decade with Nic Kidman for California law, it is screamingly obvious how Katie has waited til just after the 5 year mark to file for divorce, hard and fast. She’s done with the contract. I hate how the gossip entertainment industry can assist in the maintenance of a celebrity’s closet, then feign surprise when a sham marriage ends. That said, I do love the movie “Legend”!

  6. Who cares? These people are as alien to most of us as Alf. The only schmick of interest here is the welfare of an innocent child who, if this plays out as most celebrity “marriages” will be messed up for life.

  7. ” Kidman miscarried right after the separation and Cruise was reportedly cold-hearted about it.”
    Wulll yuhhh, because he prolly had nothin’ to do with the pregancy.
    Oh, and here’s reason 6: He met something better in a gay bar.

  8. Hey leave off Legend! It was a decent movie. Directed by Ridley Scott, Mia Sara was gorgeous in it, and Tim Curry as the Lord of Darkness was one of the best movie villians ever.

    But oh yeah, Cruise is nuts. Props to the guy for doing his own stunts though.

  9. Just to give you a update. The Ultimate Return My Love Spell you did for me is working beautifully. He came back 2days after you casted the spell. He came back on Memorial day. When he walked through the door my family eye’s were shocked, becuase we haven’t seen nor heard from my husband in a year and a half now. We are talking things through and planned on trying to make it work between us again. Oh, and that other woman is not even in the picture anymore. I extend my thousand thanks to you DR ANTOGAI antogaispelltemple@yahoo.com
