It’s finally happening; Katie is divorcing Tom.
Just when I’d written this off as a slow news week, it’s Katie Holmes to the rescue! She’s divorcing Tom Cruise, and I’m just about as happy as Tom Cruise was all those years ago on Oprah’s couch.
Why am I so happy about it, you ask? Well, mostly I think Tom’s a batshit insane closet case, but also because she hasn’t done anything decent the entire time she’s been married to him, and if the Tom and Nicole divorce is anything to go by, hopefully we’ll see her remembering that she can actually act when she wants to. Case in point, Pieces of April:
No more Jack & Jill! (Hopefully.)
Now, I guess I should probably put some details in here for y’all, so here we go. Katie’s attorney released this statement:
This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.
Tom’s rep released this statement:
Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.
Katie’s looking for sole legal custody of Suri, as well as primary residential custody, division of property and a ‘suitable’ amount of child support.
So this is the fun bit, where we get to decide why they split up. Vote for as many of the options as you want.
I really hope this divorce gets ugly and we get to know all the details of Tom’s insanity behind closed doors, but somehow I doubt that it will happen. Either way, I’ll keep you all posted, though.
