Color Us Jaded

Mega film star and former Glen Ridge resident Tom Cruise capped of his media blitz this morning with the announcement of a wedding proposal to his beloved, Katie Holmes.

Tom Cruise said he has proposed to his actress girlfriend Katie Holmes at Paris' famed Eiffel Tower, during a visit to promote his latest film "War of the Worlds".

"I proposed to Katie last night (Thursday) because Paris is very beautiful and romantic," the Hollywood star told a media conference. She said yes," he added Friday. He put off answering other questions about the wedding plans, saying they were up to Holmes' father to decide.

Translation: We're putting off questions about the wedding plans, so we can parse these details out and get more ink before the movie hits.

It gives hope to straight women everywhere that we can all grow up to be the beard of a gay Scientologist.

This whole thing reeks to high heaven...I can't believe it's front-page news.

Oy veh! Nicole Kidman IS lucky to be away from this mess!

I think he's gone crazy! (Perhaps he needs those mental health meds that he so dismisses...)

At least Katie is so young that she can look back on this and say "I was young and stupid"....which, inevitably she will do!

And, do you notice that sometimes she kinda looks freaked out by this!?

I hadn't heard.

Well, the new Batman movie was pretty darn good.

on a side note, our former babysitter claimed to have had tom cruise's old locker when she was a senior at grhs.
and didn't his sister used to run that restaurant near the path station in hoboken all those years ago?
is scientology a family affair? how big is it? other than actors, who else is drawn to it?
this is like the masons two hundred years ago.

Well, it still could be worse. Tom could be a disciple of the Landmark Forum.

Apparently they also call former MASH star Mike Farrell in the middle of the night and harass him after he did some looking into Scientology as part of a movie he was doing on cults. (Or at least they were doing so a few years ago.) Apparently it got to the point where, if the phone rang after midnight, he'd pick it up and immediately say "Hubbard was crazy."

Rumor has it that Mr. Cruse has refused to come back to GR. Anyone know the reasons why?

Because there's no AC in the classrooms.

Posted by: Miss Martta | Jun 17, 2005 9:38:36 PM

Maybe he's mad because we haven't renamed the high school after him?.....

(Rumor has it that Mr. Cruse has refused to come back to GR. Anyone know the reasons why?)

I think he had an unhappy family situation at the time he lived here, or so I heard.

When I bought my home here, the real estate agent pointed out his home, which you can see from my backyard.

I guess it was part of her sales pitch.

Too bad he's from Glen Ridge. What a jerk. Hope he suffers from post partum depression in his next life.

And now for an L. Ron Hubbard musical interluude.

You're most welcome!

Katie needs to run far, far away. To think she is so caught up in this childhood dream that she can't see what he is doing to her. She has a scientologist following her around everywhere she goes. She can't even go to the bathroom by herself. Tom is brain washing her just like "cults" brain wash their followers. Tom might help her career but he will ruin her life. He already has. By the time she realizes it it will be to late. I have lost all respect for Tom not that had much respect for him in the first place but I believe him to a cult leader and it's very scary that he has money and power. He is going to do a lot of damage with it. Katie please wake up!
