Femme Friday: Katie Holmes

I watch a lot of television.  I'm not surprised.  You're not surprised.  You're probably rolling your eyes right now and going, "Yeah Liz, those eighteen posts about your favorite television shows and how you have no life outside of the ol' boob-tube in no way gave us any clue about your voracious television consumption".

My recent binge-watching (the only way to watch, really) of Dawson's Creek re-introduced me to one Katie Holmes.  Before this, I basically thought of her as that chick who made Tom Cruise go all cray-cray and jump on furniture.  And as the mother of the cutest and best-dressed celebrity on this planet. 

 Eat your heart out, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt.  

Dawson's Creek presented her in a new light, though, and in the wake of the TomKat divorce placed me firmly on our girl Katie's side.  A little research about the divorce, and my thoughts on it only solidified.

According to insiders, her and Tom Cruise fought vehemently about whether or not Suri would be raised as a Scientologist.  While that isn't cited as the reason for the divorce, I bet it's a fairly large factor.

I always thought Scientology was a little loopy (or maybe just Tom Cruise and Scientology) and I think it's pretty brave of her to fight back if she feels that her daughter being raised in that way isn't in her best interests.  It sounds like she really has her ducks in order with the plan of attack for the divorce, and I'm interested to see how it all turns out.

What side of the TomKat divorce are you on?  Do you have a side?  Do you even care to have a side?  Sound off in the comment section!


  1. I love tv and celebrity gossip! :) I'm firmly on Katie's side...Tom always seemed a little nutso to me!

    1. Right?? Normal people just don't go jumping on couches on national television.

  2. I don't really pay attention to the celebrity stuff much...but her daughter is ADORABLE!!!

    1. Isn't she?? I swear that kid is better dressed than me!
