The only actual “news” story was the fact that Paramount didn't have any objection to Tom Cruise starring in MI4. The only interesting thing about that story is that it came out last week before the Oprah interview, but hardly anyone noticed. So, what to do? Someone went back to Paramount and asked the same question again, and then in the wave following Oprah got it printed everywhere.
The Met Costume Gala was legitimate, except for the apparent 4 inches of height Tom gained in one day.
Then, later this week, we had Tom Cruise backstage at Hairspray fawning over the cast and probably hoping they would let him get out there and sing some songs and dress like a woman. He and Katie dragged along Suri and claimed it was her favorite video. She's 2. Any video will be her favorite video.
Kelly Preston came out and said that Tom Cruise was a pro when it came to the sex scenes in Jerry Maguire. Really knew what he was doing. Makes it sound like he's a real ladies man. Now where do Kelly and Tom know each other? Oh yeah.
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of a high school kid throwing a party at his parent's house, Tom started his very own website. I am too scared to actually go on the site for fear winding up on a CO$ website somewhere being bombarded with questions about my crimes.
Kind of hard to believe Tom never had a website before this week.
So, with all this publicity for one man, you would think he had a movie coming out. Ummm. Nope. Book? Ummm. Nope. Record? God I hope not. Garage Sale? Ummm. Maybe.
That is the crazy thing about all this is there is nothing for him to promote except himself and trying to restore his reputation. I wonder if it's working. With me it isn't, but the rest of the world might be buying it.
