Tom and Katie Split



In the latest celebrity news, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce.

‘Oh how shocking!’ –  no one



Let me remind you of the courtship lasting all of two months:

  • Four weeks after her engagement ended with Chris Klein, Holmes was seen out with Cruise. And let me state, he is 16 years her senior.
  • Next thing we know, Cruise is jumping on Oprah’s couch to profess his love to Miss Holmes, where then after, she admits that her childhood dream was to marry the actor. Clearly her dream was a little more exciting than their life together in reality.
  • A year and a half after first stepping out as a couple, the two, who were already parents to Suri – born in April 2006 – wed in November of that same year.

I hate to say it, but is anyone actually surprised this marriage is ending? I am not. I am however, surprised that the marriage even made it over five years.

Hollywood is not the place “I dos” go to live happily ever after. But I’ll tell you what, the day I lose all faith in Hollywood couples is when I hear Will and Jada are over – yes, they’re the pedestal couple… for now.

Are you surprised this marriage is the latest to end in Hollywood? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment.
