Hey MSNBC, TomKat wedding isn't "Breaking News"

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 20th 2006 12:28PM

Tom and Katie newsFunny series of screen caps over at TV Newser. I guess MSNBC went "Breaking News" crazy over the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes wedding, and actually had a whole series of neverending stories at the bottom of their screen all day long. Hopefully they covered other news that day too.

Did they cover other celebrity stories like this too? "Breaking News: Bob Barker to retire," or "Breaking News: Ben Affleck buys a Mocha Frappucino at L.A. Starbucks."

Maybe - maybe - they could have had one "Breaking News" report at the bottom of the screen, when the couple were actually married. But did they actually have to go add "Breaking News: Tom Cruise arrives at castle" or "Breaking News: Ex Penelope Cruz sends white roses"? Jeez. They could have had a bunch more. "Breaking News: MSNBC puts up a Breaking News logo about Tom/Kate wedding" and "Breaking News: Jennifer Lopez and Brooke Shields among invited guests."

Oh, wait, they actually did have that last one.

McPhee to sing at TomKat's wedding?

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 1st 2006 5:31PM
katherine mcpheeWell, we heard about Steven Spielberg contacting her, and now apparently Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have also taken a shine to American Idol loser Katherine McPhee. Scuttlebutt in the gossip rags has it that McPhee met Holmes at the Church of Scientology in Los Angeles, and the two hit it off, swapping tips on how to smile and look cute, or whatever the hell they talked about. Anyway, the (in)famous Hollywood couple known as TomKat have apparently asked McPhee to perform at their wedding. The song she'll be singing is "Garblax, Tyranical One-Eyed Ruler of the Gleeferslock Galaxy." Or possibly, "You Light Up My Life." It's often hard to tell with this kind of ceremonies.

The Daily Show: April 18, 2006

by Annie Wu, posted Apr 19th 2006 11:30AM
The Daily ShowThis episode was taped before the birth of Suri, the baby of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, so no direct references were made. However, Jon Stewart remarked on the Tom Cruise quote that's been circulating absolutely everywhere: "I’m gonna eat the placenta. I thought that would be good. Very nutritious. I’m gonna eat the cord and the placenta right there". The audience immediately burst into horrified groans. Well, Cruise was only kidding. It's really unfortunate that people think he's so crazy that they can't even tell when he's joking anymore. Jon's Tom Cruise impression sounded exactly like his George W. Bush impression (sans accent -- or silly attempt at accent). Jon also suggested, when eating placenta, to pan-roast it with a bit of leek. Delish!

Tom and Katie call it quits! -- BREAKING NEWS

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Feb 14th 2006 5:08PM

Tom and KatieWow! Not sure how accurate this is going to actually turn out, but Life and Style Weekly is reporting that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are heading to Splitsville.

Holmes, the former Dawson's Creek star, is currently seven months pregnant with Cruise's baby. He returns to the big screen this summer in Mission: Impossible III which was directed by Alias' JJ Abrams. Life and Style is reporting that the couple will work together until the child is born and will then announce the split. They plan to share custody of the child. Once again, Wow!

What about all the memories though? Tom jumping on Oprah's couch! The marriage proposal at the Eiffel Tower! The pregnancy announcement! Heck, we even made Tom Cruise one of the top stories of 2005! I need a new celebrity couple to obsess over!

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes on Ellen

by Karina Longworth, posted Jan 12th 2006 11:45AM
tomcruisekatieholmes.jpgOkay, first of all, let's be fair: Ellen's "exclusive" interview with Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes? Um, she actually just sort of ran into them – her "old friends" – at CES and cobbled together a small on-the-spot crew for a brainless, 2-minute chat. Because neither Tom nor Katie is inherently interesting on their own, Ellen had to work overtime to stretch the dialogue out to fill the segment. She chose the "name your baby after me" angle:

Ellen: "Have you thought about a Godmother?"
Tom (wearing sunglasses inside and freeze-smiling like an android): "Not yet - are you available?"
Ellen: "Have you thought of a name?
Tom (android laughter): "Not yet."
Ellen: "Ellen."
Tom (more android laughter): "If its a boy?"
Ellen: "Dylan."

Then they just kind of babbled for a long time. Tom said that "Kate" had just learned how to snowboard, and "Kate" said, "Snowmobile", and dipped her head into Tom's neck. Ellen looked on, confused, until Tom changed the subject: "Inside joke."

This was the closest it got to resembling an actual conversation between human beings:

Ellen: "I'm serious about really helping out. How often do babies have to eat?"
Tom: "I think it's a couple of times a week?"

So, all in all, pretty crazy-free, and as such, thoroughly disappointing. But Ellen fans would still be well served by tuning in – at the end of the show, she bumps-and-grinds with the Pussycat Dolls, and it's totally worth the wait.

Tom Cruise v Cartman

by Ryan j Budke, posted Dec 20th 2005 5:12PM
tomkatMost of this story rests with Tom Cruise being a whiney little bitch, so chances are it's going to happen. Way back in 1997, when Tom Cruise was married to a young Hollywood bombshell and had a newborn child, someone accused him of being homosexual. At the time, it was a trashy checkout magazine and it wasn't meant to be serious. Flash forward to 2005 -- Tom Cruise is engaged to one of Hollywood's rising stars, who's pregnant with his "seed", and a trashy TV show repeatedly pleaded for him to "come out of the closet." The show was South Park (anyone surprised?), and the episode in question was the November 16th "Trapped in the Closet".

Inside Inside TV

  • Katie and TomEverything you need to know about this issue of Inside TV is right smack dab on the cover!
  • There's a rundown on everything that TomKat has been up to lately (with photos!), in a title that sums it all up nicely: "Crazy In Love."
  • Matt Lauer: How he keeps his marriage sexy. Oh God.
  • The 24 Diet. Yup, that's right, a diet plan based on the FOX show. This has "let's try to tie this article to a TV show somehow" written all over it. Read it and you'll say "what the hell does this have to do with 24, except for doing things at a certain time?" Some of the tips: 8 am, eat 5 egg whites. 9am, glass of water. 11 am, glass of water. Noon, a large vegetable salad. 1pm, 2 glasses of water. 4pm, two sticks of sugarless gum. 8 pm, floss and brush. 9 pm, rent a DVD...unless it's Monday, then you should watch 24. Ah, there's the connection! (What, no exercise tip that says "6pm: get tortured, then beat up bad guys?") I suggest the Lost diet: eat nothing but fruit and fish for 40 days. For exercise, outrun invisible monsters and evil kidnappers.
  • Inside TV "finds" Erin Murphy, Tabitha from Bewitched. Which couldn't have been too hard, considering she's been in the public eye for the past 20 years and is currently doing a ton of press for the new movie.
