Katie Holmes Drives Herself


I can't remember this happening since Katie Holmes got married. I did not even think she still had a drivers license. I figured the Scientologists confiscated that when she signed on the dotted line to sell her soul to marry Tom Cruise. Over the past few months I have noticed a different Katie Holmes. This is not the same Katie Holmes who looked dazed and confused and brainwashed for years. This is a Katie Holmes who never seems to go anywhere with Tom anymore unless it involves Suri and a photo op. This is a woman who actually drove herself around town yesterday without any bodyguards or minders. Is the contract ending? Is she going to be freed? Will she get to take Suri with her? Will Tom be forced to take Jada Pinkett or Jennifer Lopez as a bride to keep the Scientology lineage proceeding?

What is that? A Mini? I hate those things.

Whatever is going on, good for Katie. Whether it's really Scientology, or falling for a much older man who's taken on a more father-figure role in her life, it is high time she grows up and takes charge of her life.

However, if this is a separation from Scientology thing, I'm kind of afraid for her. I don't think Tom C. would be the one getting the most hurt after another divorce.

It also looks like Suri didn't dress her this time. Her outfit looks nice, for a chage.

I will be truly proud of Katie when she GETS AWAY FROM THAT SCI-TROLL, AND takes Suri with her!

Free Suri! She needs a real education!

RocketQueen said...

.....stay tuned! Next week, on Free Katie."

Feisty said...

I think she looks exactly like Suri in this pic. I hope they get out ok.

Rita said...

Libby - Enty should start a 'FREE SURI' to the real world post. That would be fun to see how long before Scientology get wind and works on bringing the post down!

Tommy likes the Mini - it makes him look taller. My husband has an awesome yellow mini with black racing stripes.

I recently read the entire Paul Haggis interview about Scientology (26 pages). Very, very creepy. Katie would have a hell of a time leaving Tom - well, maybe because she's in the public eye it might be easier. Then again, Tom has an army of lawyers...

Jenny said...

There have been occasional photos of her driving. She probably drives a lot and either the paps miss it or the shots don't sell.

SusanB said...

hahaha - I'd LOVE to see Tom Cruise with Jennifer Lopez! Now THAT would be entertainment!

Dianne P said...

I never really thought about it before, but why doesn't he just marry another sciento-celeb? At this point I think there is enough of a pool that he could find a new mate.

MISCH said...

She better get Suri, the kid needs to be re programed.

Will Tom be forced to take Jada Pinkett or Jennifer Lopez as a bride

OMG, that's funny. Could you just imagine either one of those maneaters standing next to Tommy?

Katie looks okay, but I swear she's still wearing those tan boots. Ugh

Rita said...

mngddess - After reading the Paul Haggis New Yorker report, do you still believe that anyone can get away from Scientology?

Seachica said...

That looks like a mini countryman. I drive one, and am a little too excited to see her driving one too.

selenakyle said...

Think she can drive with those knees constantly knocking each other?

figgy said...

mngoddess--I just finished reading that too! wowowowow, it's so much worse than I even thought!

...and now I understand why John Travolta cannot leave, even though he is rumored to want to: they don't hesitate to spread the contents of your various confessions and auditing sessions.

Texshan said...

I came THIS close to buying a Countryman, but went with a Kia Soul instead because of the hamster commercials. I make really well thought-out decisions, obviously.

She is totally still wearing those gross tan miniboots, blondy. At this point, they have to stink like those nasty Uggs Britney wore everywhere all summer two years ago.

I'm calling it right now -- Tom Cruise will marry either Erika Christianson or Elisabeth Moss next. I would say Juliette Lewis, but I think she's too nutty for him, ironically.

figgy said...

And Katie looks absolutely gorgeous there. Not "done." Not too thin. Healthy, normal. I'm pulling for her.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

You know why I don't like Minis? Because you can't put anything in them. They're for zipping around and looking cool. When I need to take some bins to storage that car isn't going to help me.

surfer said...

Read a really interesting article this weekend in the Village Voice, about Marty Rathbun, who was very high up in SeaOrg, and left COS, and what is happening to him now. For the last 150 days or so, a group known as "squirrel busters" has been filming him outside his house, harassing both him & his wife, and had him briefly arrested.

I hope for Katie's sake, she is able to leave, safely.

Seachica said...

Sue Ellen: check out the countryman for space. It's four doors, and I regularly fit my bike in it. It's the maxi mini :).

I love my mini, can you tell?

Whoever posted the bet that Tom marries Elizabeth moss next -- you're not taking my money. That's spot on.

Go, Katie, go.

KLM said...

LOL @ Texshan... I swear my step-father thought about buying a Kia because of those hamsters.

bluebonnetmom said...

So, I love the Kia Soul Hamsters as much as anyone, but never thought about trading my Volvo SW in for one. I love the latest commercial with the robots and LMAO Party song. Their marketing people are VERY GOOD. I sure hope Katie takes Suri with her. There would be nothing they could do to me to keep me from my children. PERIOD.

mngddess said...

I think you CAN get away from them as long as you have support. Since most of them are subject to long-term programming, including breaking away from their family, I doubt most of them could. Katie, however, seems to have her family behind her. And Scientology is not so secret anymore..

Texshan said...

KLM and Bluebonnet, just goes to show you my thought process when making large financial decisions. Luckily, the Soul has been a pretty good car for me. It's large enough to haul stuff around in (two dogs, or a trip to IKEA, or a Costco run), but not so large that I feel like I'm not in control. So, in the long run, the hamsters didn't steer me wrong. Pun intended.

Snakeoiler said...

And...back to Toledo, to bask on the shores of Lake Erie.

Lelaina Pierce said...

I like the Kia hamsters too but I could do without hearing that damn song for the millionth time. TV & Radio play it constantly.

FREE KATIE AND SURI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Barton Fink said...

I don't know if they stopped working with lists of intentions, but the Scios used to have a list of things that every sentient being in this cosmos would want (I think it was part of the Havingness Scale?), and one of the items was: To possess a mechanical vehicle that is attractive, and to pilot it oneself. So Katie should want to drive herself around at high velocities, if she's doing that part of the "tech."

Disclaimer: I'm not a Scio, I just have read lots and lots of their stuff, mostly via "critic" sites and former members' accounts.
