AHA! The truth comes out! If you were wondering why Brooke Shields became SO chummy with Tom Cruise after they had that very public tiff over anti-depressants, we’ve got the answer. After Tom’s anti-drug tirade he realized how many women had turned AGAINST him (including Sumner Redstone’s wife) – they sided with Brooke. Rather than lose masses of female fans, Tom appeared on Brooke’s doorstep with an apology. He included her in various social events and Brooke softened up. Tom desperately needed her friendship and Brooke’s publicized appearance at his wedding was a huge deal to Cruise. He persuaded Brooke to attend the wedding by pampering her like a princess with deluxe travel accomodations AND he promised her a role in one of his upcoming movies, possibly The War Magician. Brooke is thrilled – HER career needs a boost too! So they’re BOTH happy with their showbiz “friendship.”

    Tom Cruise is as wierd as Michael Jackson. It’s gonna take a helluva lot more than Brooke Shields to help his image. Argh! He’s just too creepy for me…

    In a few years, when he divorces Katie, comes out of the closet, loses the girdle and the lifts, it’ll be, “Tom who? Oh, yeah, the fool that jumped on Oprah’s couch. I thought he was dead.”

    Every move in this guy’s life is a carefully crafted PR campaign. He’s really lost it. Do you know that Scientologists believe that certain people who they consider negative thinkers have alien life forces living in them that cause the negativity. L. Ron Hubbard is just a scammer who created a “religion” to make millions on lost souls and get a tax break. Very sad that so many in Hollywood have fallen for it.

    Hmmm. I think we all read this at least three weeks ago on every other gossip site. Good work Sherlock.

    If Brooke is as smart as I think she is, she’ll use him like he’s using her. He’ll probably stop acting and become the head of UA studio. Could be a good person to know for Brooke.
    And yeah, Scieno’s believe some very weird shit. A religion for tax reasons is so true. I can’t think of any other “religion” that isn’t based on a God figure except Scientology.

    Does the Midget Alien really believe that the female public are so stupid as to think that just because he has apologised that we will all just forget what a plonker he is? Let us just hope Brooke is smart enough to use him for all she can.

    It was obviously a PR thing. I saw one Entertainment Tonight type of interview where the reporter was blabbing about this exciting new friendship because Katie and Brooke had babies at the same time in the same hospital and Brook looked stunned but didn’t publicly disagree. She’s a smart lady. Not sure why her career has slowed down or why she seems desperate for publicity.

    Tom is such a phony. There’s nothing real about him. Sorry Brooke fell for his B.S. She doesn’t need him!

    L Ron Hubbard is probably rolling over in his grave in fits of laughter, amazed at all of the people he’s fooled with his book of bullshit.

    I thought the cult I mean the church of Scientology threatnen to kill her and her family if she didn’t cooperate.

    I’m disappointed that she is hanging out with him after all the crap he said regarding post natal depression. I’ve read that she maybe considering joining Scientology – I HOPE NOT!!
    Anyway she needs the career boost. I’ve also read that her husband is a script writer who wants more work and they went to TomKat’s wedding to network.

    Tom Cruise is a short, psychopathic little egotist, a professional manipulator, and has some of you people fooled into believing that he’s “sincere”. He’s got you wrapped around his little finger and won’t be long before you flock to the nearest theatre hand over your cash that ends up in his pocket and into his cult. What makes him think that he can fool the public as he prances around imitating brangelina for a “power couple” look. Well, when you’ve got an entire $cientology organization and zealous sycophants massaging his ego and at his beck and call, I guess I too might be COMPLETELY out-of-touch with how the REAL WORLD thinks of him. He is a contrived psychopath (look up the definition because it’s not limited to a serial killer. we have psychopaths running our corporations and government – think ENRON, WorldCom for bloody example). Everything this man does is carefully planned to fool the masses. Everything HE WANTS YOU TO SEE is deliberately leaked out to the press from his PR team. I don’t need a publicist telling ME sugar-coated bullsh*t like Tom “Rescued people” or is a “family man” or that he is “Not gay”. Publicists are paid to lie, deny, and cover-up celebrity scandals and “bad public images”. I know. I used to work for one. Not anymore. I realized that if you don’t have a conscience, then PR is the job for you. I don’t believe anything Arnold Robinson says. I don’t believe everything I see (aka, Tom’s photo ops with Katie and Suri and Connor, etc.). I question the validity of everything, and if something doesn’t add up, like the history, timeline of events, and facts don’t add up to Tom and katie’s claims and pretenses, then something is NOT RIGHT!

    Please could you tell us why so many comments are posted by Anonymous. Is it because they have not listed a name at all or because they are, excuse the language, chicken s***?

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
