When reached for a statement on why she's filed for divorce,
Katie only replied

fragMasterFlash: Poor Tom. He only got to ride the Choo-Choo with Becky DeMornay once.


Damn, that woman is smokin'. I nearly stripped the skin off my schlong fapping to "And God Created Woman"

FarkinHostile: Counseling by Xenu can save them.


Will she get the interstellar DC-8 as part of her settlement? Or just a few slivers of dignity and maybe the possibility of something other than a baster in her vaj?

RealFarknMcCoy2: cynicalbastard: spman: detroitdoesntsuckthatbad: Pants full of macaroni!!: Katie is free again - but at what cost?

How long until all of Clearwater hunts her down and forces her back to SeaOrg (or whatever it's called)?

After they split, Tom used Scientology to drive Nicole Kidman to drink, and I don't think they were much kinder to Penelope Cruz, Katie better watch out.

If Kidman's like most Brit chicks, if you drive them to drink chances are you're not using much gas on that trip.

Um.... not sure if serious...
You do know that Nicole isn't British, right??


Sorry, she's Aussie. Cancel the remark about not using much gas, insert one about not getting out of second gear.

Kuroshin: StewMcG: Since it looks like all of Tom's beards... uhh... I mean ex-wives are around 11 years younger than the one before (Mimi Rogers b. 1956, Nicole Kidman b. 1967, Katie Holmes b. 1978), I'm betting he's looking for someone around 23 years old.

Enter Julianne Hough. She's 23 (b. 1988 - so only 10 years younger than Katie), she's experienced as a beard (she's currently "dating" Ryan Seacrest), and she just starred in "Rock of Ages" with Tom. They could claim they fell in love during the filming but, because Tom was still married, it would have been wrong to act on those supposed feelings. Now that Katie's leaving him, it would be OK for them to go out as a "couple".

/just a theory

This needs bookmarked for future reference. If this happens before the year is out, somebody owes you a beer.

/not me, of course
//Hey, I'm on *your* side!


Difficulty: Hough is Mormon. Although Scientologists say that you can be one of them AND keep your religion. Just what I've heard. Can you imagine one person being BOTH of those things?

/Mormonism + Scientology. Two great cults that brainwash great together? Eh, somebody come up with something funnier

I can understand, given the jurisdiction she has filed her petition in and the custodial request, why Katie Holmes has done this.

Ditch the whole "the first five years have passed on the contract" and "Tom is gay" narrative for a minute. Katie filed for divorce in the city and county of New York and has requested sole legal custody of Suri as well as primary residential custody. It's starting to sound like Katie Holmes wants to get Suri far, far away from the Church of Scientology.

For years Tom has claimed their primary residence as being in California and word filtering around is he'll try to get this case heard in a California court, because it could otherwise cause him to owe a buttload of city and state taxes in NY. New York courts are more likely to award Katie her custody request, seeing as Tom spends a lot of time working. California courts tend to favor joint legal custody in divorce cases where children are involved.

I wonder if this means that we're going to have them fighting it out over jurisdictional issues for years. I can't imagine that Tom is going to agree to jurisdiction in NY without a major fight.

The thing is, you've brought logic to a thread involving Scientology.

Scientology can handle ridicule, but's it's not that great at dealing with logic.

Snargi: ZeroCorpse: She's a terrible, terrible actress. She damn near ruined Batman Begins.

And then they replaced her with Maggie Gly..Gylleken... fark it, sister of that Brokeback Mountain guy, who isn't as good looking and didn't act that well either. I was glad when the Joker blew her up.


Yes Katie had one good scene near the end when she had the high beams on outside of Wayne manor. With Maggie there was the one scene where Joker calls her beutiful and I nearly crapped my pants laughing.

I suspect the jurisdiction is a bargaining chip; Tom either agrees to allowing Katie sole legal and primary physical custody and she drops the NY petition, then re-files in CA or she'll fight him tooth and nail, then let NYS and NYC tax authorities have their chunk of his ass. Katie has retained Allan E. Mayefsky and Jonathan Wolfe, two very high powered attorneys specializing in nasty divorces (Mayefsky) and financial settlements (Wolfe). I'd be willing to bet she's also been in contact with Laura Wasserman in Los Angeles, in case Tom is willing to agree on the custody issue to get the case out of the NY courts.

As for the current venue, Tom has no one to blame but himself; in order to avoid the taxes levied by the city and state on income for residents on NYC, he transferred the deed on the apartment to a trust benefiting Katie. That caused the apartment to become her property of record.

... need to get my hands on that old video of Tom laughing his ass off during Kanye West's 'Golddigger', where he could be lip read saying, 'That's so true'...

Let me give you an example of "property of record" - in my case, I maintained a Nevada address for years (my father's home), simply by renewing my Nevada drivers' license every four years and having his water bill set up in my name. After my second husband tossed me through a third floor window in California, I headed to Reno immediately. Once in Reno, I called a lawyer friend who filed the papers for me. He faxed the petition and proof of service to another lawyer friend of my family, who had my husband sign them as soon as the SOB made bail on the charge of attempted murder. Proof of service was faxed back, taken before the judge and the divorce was final in a day.

In Katie's case, all she did was elect to live in the apartment Tom deeded over to the trust... because he wanted to have a NYC address without paying NY taxes on his income.

This would make a good opening line in a book.

It was over as soon as my feet passed the windowsill. Between gymnastics and pro wrestling, I learned how to tuck into a fall and spread the impact.
