Tat'dGreaser: I'm starting to feel less and less sorry for her. She knew what she was getting in to.


Yeah. I'm conflicted.

I wonder how many people get stuck in cults due to arrogance - "They can't change me. I'll just pretend to go along."

In Katie's case I don't think she was arrogant, though. Just very, very naive.

He and Kidman renewed their vows on their 10th anniversary, and he filed for divorce a month later. Also it was right after she miscarried their baby.

That was Ewan MacGregor's baby.............. allegedly. Dude's boys can't swim, unless Conner really is his son.

That picture is both of them trying waaaay too hard at studied nonchalance.

If by "studied nonchalance" you mean "straight', then yes.

Totes.


Precisely, They're obviously over-thinking the pose in an effort to make sure nobody thinks there's more between them than just being buddies.

Having finished "Blown for Good" a couple of months ago, I didn't think I could hate Scientology or David Miscavige more til a farker mentioned Shelly Miscavige was missing... Since 2006. So reading up on that for the last hour or so, looks like he offer her. And may have offed her mother back in 1985. This guy is a super villain, and Tom Cruise is his bff.

namatad: GreatGlavinsGhost: Let's start a list of things that might be in her secret paper and that are no longer scandalous:

1. homosexuality
2. bisexuality
3. cellphone photos
4. sex tape
5. drug use/abuse
6. kinky fantasies

so what's left?
pedophile
necrophiliac
Scientologist


You forgot: Accounting fraud through the church to evade taxes.

Diogenes: Cruise's former legal counsel, "auditor," and Scientology apostate says they'll use Katie's auditing session records against her.

I think it's only fair that Katie's team counters with Tom's Speak And Spell scores.


That's only assuming the judge would rule it admissible. Says a lot for the Cult started by a science-fiction writer for the $$$ Church that something akin to a catholic confession would be used against a mother that easily.

AdamK: i'm not convinced tom cruise is gay, i am convinced however that the guy is probably secretly a gigantic douchewad, so into himself that the only way he'd fark a guy is if he were a clone of tom cruise

i speak from experience with a former brother-in-law who was a habitual liar and extreme ego-case obsessed with himself, as soon as his made-up world was exposed he divorced nonchalantly and started dating a girl who was almost identical to my sister and kept using the same old lies

cruise may or may not be a liar, but i wouldn't be surprised if he's that same kind of controlling ego-case that wears other people down over time

Can't it be both?
He is a Gigantic, Gay, Douchewad?

Magorn: GreatGlavinsGhost: Magorn: Diogenes: Cruise's former legal counsel, "auditor," and Scientology apostate says they'll use Katie's auditing session records against her.

I think it's only fair that Katie's team counters with Tom's Speak And Spell scores.

I've wondered about that. Legally speaking the "priest/penitent" privilege is one that can be asserted by either party, though only the "penitent" can waive it. It would seem that katie would be able to assert this privilege and keep any record of the auditing sessions from being used in the divorce.

Now could they still LEAK them to the press or something similar? Sure. Though she's well enough off tht she could hire the sort of lawyers who could really make Scientology bleed in a tort case over that (Invasion of Privacy Torts cover this sort of leaking)

But, what if she doesn't care if they leak them?

What if she told them a bunch of bullshiat? She was raised Catholic, I think she knows how and when to embellish her "confessions".

And, isn't it a duty for every actress to proclaim to have sampled one flavor of bisexuality (curiosity, affair, etc) at some point in her career?

I honestly don't know what could possibly be in her file that would be so damaging. At least not nowadays; people are likely not to give a rat's ass no matter what is leaked. Plus, i think the general public would be more sympathetic to her if the cult released/leaked anything regardless.

That's true. In Post-Kardashian America, it's kinda hard to imagine what would really cause "a scandal" anymore, much less a career-ender


Not only that, but at this point in each of their careers, a media PR war would likely help Holmes career and end Cruise's, though I'm sure there'd be no surprises from either of them.

If Scientology is registered as a religion for various legal purposes, could Katie insist that she has to be provided priest/penitent priviliges? Probably not, but it would be interesting to watch them squirm.

If somewhere were to file a, say, sexual harrasment lawsuit against Cruise would they not have the right to depose Holmes and have a fairly wide latitude as to what they could ask? At which she is no longer bound by a "do not disclose" agreement and in fact be legally obligated to answer?

That might be fun to watch...
