And a juicy, juicy blind item to leave the day with. ..This young star is suffering from extreme highs and lows and people fear she may be headed for a Britney-style meltdown. Self-harm by cutting and burning herself and pulling out small clumps of her hair in private…eeck! We think we might have an idea who this is….do you? [Blind Gossip]
And at least we have a reason the kick back and not worry about repenting for our sins.
You see, this star has gotten themselves in a whole lot of trouble and she just doesn’t know how to get out of this mess, as more and more evidence of her unruly and wayward behavior continues to mount up.
In an act that could either be characterized as desperate or delusional, the person in question has even been putting in calls to someone she wronged….and publicly humiliated.
But can her sobs and crys for forgiveness ever really be enough?
And, no, it’s not Kristen Stewart calling Robert Pattinson!
Which high-profile couple’s relationship is on the verge of imploding because one of the partners can’t tame their wild ways?
The excuse that you’re young and dumb and make stupid mistakes is fine initially, but when you are still brazenly partaking in some rather seedy endeavors, the question becomes, how much more can the other person take?
Her worst fears are starting to ring true, and as one person close to the male in the relationship says, “everyone knows he’s gay”.
Can a person who likes the same sex really do a complete U-turn?
Is the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes split leaving your head spinning with an overload of information? For us, with every little detail (true or false) being reportedly breathlessly every nanosecond on the internet, it’s almost become as exhausting as watching the over-the-top marriage in the past five years.
So, we decided to bring you the best bits from the TomKat saga in parts, coupled with real reporting, false alarms, rumors, blind items…. and expert opinions.
Here, we present the first round of analysis of the story that has everyone in a frenzy…. come back tomorrow for another daily dose.
Did Katie serve Tom his divorce papers in a birthday card?
A reader suggested this may have occurred and we spoke to several sources who said that it wouldn’t be unfathomable given how nasty this battle between the former “besotted” pair is turning out to be.
“It’s all out war now between them, ” says one source in their inner circle. “Katie is going for the jugular, and Tom is not going down without a fight.”
Btw, Cruise turns 50 tomorrow (Tuesday)… perhaps this mess is not the best way to celebrate such a milestone.
Katie’s next starring role after life as Mrs. Cruise?
Is Holmes in the running to star on the big screen version of 50 Shades Of Grey? Perhaps… she’s gone and hired herself a new publicist, and today, with a new polished look, she stepped out in public for her appearance post-split to film the Lifetime reality fashion competition “Project Runway: All Stars”. There’s no doubt that she is eyeing a Hollywood comeback. Whether she gets the much coveted role is another question altogether.
Is Katie’s life in danger?
The New York Post reported that authorities were summoned to Katie Holmes’ apartment building in Chelsea, New York on Friday after the actress reportedly told a neighbor she’s worried she’s being stalked.
The incident happened on the same day that news broke that Holmes had filed for divorce from Tom Cruise after five years of marriage and was seeking primary custody of their 6-year-old daughter Suri.
Sources told the Post one of Holmes’ neighbors called the police; since the actress didn’t file a complaint herself, police did not take any action.
This came on the back of reports over the weekend that there were two cars stationed outside her new apartment which could be Scientologists watching her (scary).
As it turns out, the “church” of Scientology insists they’re not stalking her, and the cars watching her are most likely her new security (she fired Tom’s- out with the old, in with the new) or paps/reporters eager for a ’scoop”.
Was Scientology a hot-button and a press-and-destroy button in the Holmes/Cruise marriage?
Almost every outlet is claiming that one major factor in Holmes filing for divorce is Cruise’s obsession with Scientology and that he wanted their daughter Suri to go to away to Sea Organisation – where the highest levels of Scientology are taught and children as young as five can be sent to live there – without their parents.
Scientology was always going to be an issue, but last time we checked, this wasn’t a remake of Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut. Holmes entered into this marriage with her Eyes Wide Open: She knew what she was getting into and willingly became a participant.
What does Cruise have to hide?
Well, before you answer that….
“Tom Cruise would be stupid to fight Katie Holmes for custody of Suri because of the information her family has about his ties to Scientology, Marty Rathbun, an ex-high ranking Scientologist with insider information revealed to RadarOnline.com.
“Katie’s family has information that Tom probably wouldn’t want released to the public,” he says.
The marriage was simply a five-year contract
Most twitter users believe this to be case and the timing of the divorce (just shy of the six-year mark) did little to dispel these conspiracy theories.
Ask any of your friends, and most of them will lament that the contract must have ended, thus the reason for the split.
Oh, and items like this just pour more fuel onto the already scorching fire.
What to make of the rumors, the innuendos and blind items such as this?
A Chip in Her Pocket for The Trial
BlindGossip – This celebrity couple is close to a final agreement over how everything – including the child/ren – is going to be divided in the divorce. However, the wife’s legal team is having her keep one chip in her pocket for the divorce trial. If the husband’s team tries any last-minute maneuvering, the wife is not afraid to reveal an incident where she (along with their child/ren) caught her husband in bed with a family friend of theirs. The friend is a professional athlete. In case you’ve been wondering why the couples rarely get together for more than an hour and a photo op – this is the reason.
Was “I promise to look the other way while my spouse entertains guests in bed” part of their marriage vows or part of their contract?
Is this story going to go away anytime soon?
When Rupert Murdoch is even weighing in on the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes split, you know this story is going to have a lot of legs.
The media mogul yesterday tweeted: ”Scientology back in news. Very weird cult, but big, big money involved with Tom Cruise either number two or three in [hierarchy].”
When he was attacked for his comments, the 81-year-old stood his ground, adding: “Since Scientology tweet hundreds of attacks. Expect they will increase and get worse and maybe threatening. Still stick to my story.”
We have numerous, numerous questions, as we are sure you do, but we await with bated breath to see if Cruise will stick to the story he’s been churning out for the past five years.
We’re going to start presenting our top three pictures of the day. Here’s the ones that stood out for us on this lovely Monday.
First up, Paris Hilton seems to be trying to recapture her youth at Mansion nightclub In Miami last night. Forget the perfect princess, Paris looked like an escapee from the rave brigade as she donned DJ Afrojack sunglasses at the Jacked party and waved her little glow sticks around (perhaps she is hoping to wave her wand and make her nemesis Kim Kardashian disappear once and for all).
Moving onto real royalty now, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall seemed to really enjoy taking a lick of her ice cream at the oldest ice cream shop in Denmark, during her and Prince Charles visit. Unfortunately for her, this is not exactly the most flattering of shots anyone in the Monarchy would want floating around on the internet.
And, lastly, it appears LeAnn Rimes will do anything to keep her hunk hubby happy, including puckering up with a woman.
This and a series of other photos were taken yesterday as she and Eddie Cibrian decided to spice up yet another vacation (this time at the ski spot Mammoth, California), by instigating some girl-on-girl action. We cannot even begin to imagine what goes on behind closed doors with this pair.
And here’s an interesting blind item, which is currently on Blind Gossip, to mull over during that last hour of work….can you guess who it is?
Actress Made $20 Million Blackmailing Actors
CDAN] It is amazing to me to see how this B- list always movie actress is trying to change her image. She thinks that one thing she has going on in life will change the way the public perceives her and suddenly make them like her. They probably won’t and if they knew what else she did, she would rush into hiding for the rest of her life.
This actress has never been known for being respectful of others or their relationships. She has no qualms about doing what she wants, when she wants it and in her mind she always comes first. She has destroyed several marriages and made way more money blackmailing the men in her life then she ever has from any films in which she has appeared. Our actress sucks in the actors by being available and doing exactly what their significant others will not do. Her first and probably still biggest conquest was with this A/B list always movie actor. She destroyed his marriage and then tried to destroy his career. See, everyone thinks later that he was the bad guy which he was when he cheated, but then she made it seem like he cheated on her too so people would start to like her. Sh found a woman who agreed to have sex with the actor and our Blackmailer filmed it. Several times. She told the actor she wanted $1M or she would release the tapes. He paid, so she did not release the tapes. What she did do though was tell the world he cheated on her to get public opinion on her side. It did not work.
Later, our blackmailer found an actor who fit her criteria perfectly. Married, wealthy and had children. Children were always her lever. Whether she was blackmailing a politician or a designer to show her clothes, she loves married men with children. They are the most vulnerable and the usually the most willing to go after her when she turns on the charm. The fact she is willing to do anything anywhere with the guys including offering up same sex people close to her and you realize she will stop at nothing. With the rich actor she thought it was going great and that she was going to get her happy marriage. Turns out though the actor had second thoughts. What he had not counted on was our actress having tapes of them together doing things the public would be aghast at and his wife would never forgive. She was being hard enough to deal with as it is. To see videos of him with our actress tied up and being whipped would be too much. The fact the actress had brought someone along who was also naked would have made things 100 times worse. $10M later and our actress pretty much gives up acting and everything else. Her total haul over a ten year period of blackmailing was about $20M which was enough to finance a company, keep her in luxury and now let her pretty much retire and do nothing.
