The Trouble With The Tom/Katie Divorce Theories

Everyone's carrying on about how Katie Holmes started becoming oppressed by Scientology and feared that little Suri would get swept up into the whole thing, and she decided that she wanted to protect her precious child!

Huh?

Wasn't that one of the main points of the marriage?

Didn't Katie enter into this knowing that it was some kind of Scientology-promoting love fest and the spawn she exfoliated before they even wed was planned to be a golden example of Scientology Trek: The Next Generation?

Suddenly we're supposed to believe that Katie is so concerned about saving this poor child from the clutches of the religion--even though she brought her into the world as part of a hellish commingling that was quite upfront about itself?

I'm not buying it.

This isn't Rosemary's Baby. Nobody made secret deals behind anyone's back here.

More likely, Katie's nutty nuptials gave her a potential out seven years after Tom started the couch jumping, and they announced it right after promotion for Tom's Rock of Ages was as over as the movie itself.

And now Katie won't say a word--believe me.

But ironically, she'll get more of a career now than she did in the marriage.

(She'll enjoy a rush of public support similar to what Nicole got post-Tom--but no Oscar this time. Sorry, hon.)

And Suri--who looks very much like her mother, by the way--will grow into a major celebrity.

She's already got the star power--and the clothes.

I believe it very possible that a starstruck, in love slightly insecure 20 something woman could make this blunder. There's no doubt she was fed information about the church in rosy increments. As she matured and leared more about the church she likely became quite concerned, even afraid.  For all we know, she may have been planning this for more then a year the role of her life.  This is my theory based on my own experiences of stupidity in my 20's.  Go Katie!

('Exfoliated'???) She was very young and you can make A LOT of mistakes in those years - she had been a Tom FAN ffs!!! Maybe she really didnt realise how dodgy the Co$ was - those were pre-anonymous days and people were way more afraid to speak out. Also, celebs are VERY shielded form the truth....ask anyone who worked at celebrity centre. Maybe she DID have an opt out ....it doesnt matter....Tom and scientology wouldnt have wanted this and it will have its rammifications to come.Celebs may be more narcissistic and manipulative than the rest of us but they are still people and make a LOT of mistakes....Just glad Suri is out of their clutches - they must be so butt-sore with their poster family gone...

She got out because she tired of Tom Cruise's fakeness and creepiness. He was on Jay Leno the other night and just watching him made my flesh melt!

She may not be as naive or as shrewd as she is being portrayed but I don't think it's surprising that they will both try to direct the divorce their way. I'm glad if she is sharp actually and I don't think it's a strike against her. If he seems too shrewd it works against him. If it's not her true motivation it's still hard to find fault with her for getting out and the more they talk about Scientology, with all the troubles lately, the worse it's going to look for Tom.  Because of her youth and his power she is the underdog.

Katie Holmes is FREE.! My opinion...Tom is gay and she knows it. He really never spent anytime with her . You rarely saw them together. Is Nicole Kidman sitting at home laughing now.?

I agree she must have known she was entering a pretty strange world. But maybe she didn't realize just how strange it was? As for her career, she's actually doing pretty well. She took time off for a couple of years, since then she's been working just about as often as any other actress her age. And she had that Jackie Kennedy thing on TV.

She was very young when she got married. Apart from everything else, maybe she's just grown up a little -- or a lot.

And when you wrote about Scientologists positioned outside Katie's building, watching her every movie, didn't people say "That's not true! It was just photographers!"? You can't win either way.

Yeah, the anti Scientology people are becoming just as hectoring and condescending as the Scientologists themselves. "It would help you get a clue, sir." Pretty divisive and patronizing shit.

Why are you directing this at Musto, nasty bitch? He's well aware of the realities and has written stuff for years. But surely the writeup implies that Katie had heard about what it was like. She's not that dumb. She knew what she was getting into. So she shouldn't be that surprised.

The author of this article seems to be lacking in understanding the difference between 'scientology welcoming propoganda' and 'scientology actual reality'.  Big difference Michael. If YOU spent 4 or 5 years 'in' scientology you would run screaming at the top of your lungs. Look around the world. Scientology is falling apart in a historic & unparalleled fashion. Jeesh, haven't you ever read Tony Ortega's scientology blog? It would help you get a clue (sir).

It's a woman's prerogative to change her mind.

Look, Katie is a smart cookie. She wants to get custody of Suri, and in New York that means convincing a judge that she'll be the better parent. If she can get everybody believing that she's being threatened by Scientology, it's all to the good.
