So Tom Cruise And The Half Naked Woman Cover Is OK?



Tom Cruise's lawyer threatened the National Enquirer yesterday with a lawsuit for their house of horrors cover. He says it is riddled with lies. Of course he doesn't bother to say which parts are true and which are lies. He did say that Tom is not a monster and is a wonderful father and that it is a shame that his children and maybe someday, grandchildren will be able to see that cover. Umm, you know what is a shame? That someday his kids and grandchildren will continue to read about the awful things Scientology has done to people's lives and that Tommy Boy was one of the kingpins of it. That is what they should be ashamed by. Oh, and I'm shocked that the half naked woman cover didn't land them in any trouble, but apparently any cover stories that have Tom in bed with a woman are always a good thing. They could probably put a cover story up about Tom having sex with ten women and some kind of marathon sex weekend and no one would hear a peep even if it was not in the slightest bit true, but call him a monster which has probably a lot of truth to it and you end up getting threatened with a suit. They won't be sued though. It would be a losing battle.

Of course they'll sue. He's a supreme being now. It would be like calling Mohammed a pederast.

I like the Oprah fired headline the best. Let's get some details on that.

It's weird to think that there are half-naked women roaming this planet, plopping themselves down in the bed of celebrity Scientologists and listening to the schizoid utterances of madmen.

I wonder if Tom has even been in bed with a half naked woman? I bet he thinks girls are icky

Frufra said...

OMG, I need to go buy me some Enquirers - you know that shit is true!

Watched MI4 with the kids last night. The man is no actor, but watching him on screen reminded me how Katie could be sucked in. He has an intense, magnetic presence. If that was focused on you, I think you'd be overwhelmed. Especially if you were a twenty something who couldn't remember a time when Tom Cruise wan't the biggest name in Hollywood.

Frufra said...

@Henriette - I think that Oprah thing happened. Discovery Channel took control of her network (OWN replaced Discovery Health, I believe) due to low ratings.

Sorry, I still don't know how to make it clicky.

Maybe Steppy or Shelly was the half-naked "woman".

Henriette said...

@frufra
I think the Big O got the boot too, but it's been very hush-hush.

BlueDahlia77 said...

"Intense, magnetic presence" is also a descriptor of men like Jim Jones and Charles Manson.

Frufra said...

I agree, BlueDahlia - totally. And many politicians and preachers, in my experience.

And no, I'm not saying all politicians and preachers are cult leaders or serial killers. Just saying that personality type is drawn to those positions of power.

shelly said...

Oh I think you have me confused with Sherry. She wanted to be the next contract beard. GMD can hang with his Athlete, Musician, and Actor.
Or Steppy. They are most def pals.

MISCH said...

Sorry, but I love that Tommy Boy is freaking out...

hunter said...

On one of the ex-CoS message boards one guy was SUPER PISSED about some mistreatment and said his sister worked in the household of TC & Katie Holmes.

He didn't provide many details but suffice to say the constant monitoring part is pretty accurate. Along with anything going wrong being the fault of whomever is closest.

To clarify: he was super pissed about how he felt HE had been mistreated after years with CoS.

Vicki Cupper said...

OMG, Shelly I'm so sorry!

Frufra said...

hunter, can you put up a link/reference that site? I know you've done so before, but I didn't have time to check it out then. Thanks.

shelly said...

Lol! It's ok, girl! Btw you are one of my favorite commenters. You're so witty- I swear you crack me up.

Vicki Cupper said...

Hahahaha, well I try. :D Sometimes it's just too easy.

rejectedcarebear said...

I'm waiting patiently for my boss to leave so I can watch that video Vicki! I'm sure its hilarious

Vicki Cupper said...

LOL, the YAAFM series was hilarious. I wish they'd kept it going.

Sunny said...

@Vicki Cupper
Between harassing B. Profane and my hubby, I know how to make a clicky link now! I have this on a notepad on my desktop:

Put your text here

Sunny said...

@Vicki Cupper
It backfired!!! Shit!

Vicki Cupper said...

Thanks, Sunny, but I'm pretty stupid. I need step-by-step instructions. lol

Doesn't it involve the "a" tag?

Sunny said...

@Vicki Cupper
Yes it does, and I am really just cutting and pasting the cheater note that my spouse left me on my desktop. I will figure a way to post it (and probably clog the thread every time I goof it up)

rejectedcarebear said...

lmao Vicki..that video was too funny. I think YAAFM may be my favorite acronym ever

Sunny said...

@Vicki
This was the cut and paste link that B. Profane gave me, and my husband dumbed it down for me. Once you check out this link, what's between the "quotes" is the web address, and what's between the <...> symbols are what you want to call the link

Thanks, Sunny!!!

figgy said...

Oh, I hope the "Tom is a monster" issue is still for sale! That looks too fun to miss.

Oh FFS, he's not going to sue, because then that would open up a whole can of worms, which TC (and CO$) doesn't want. If they sue, the Enquirer can dispose whomever they want, which surely would be former members.

Bert Fields loves, loves, loves to send threatening letters.

Oh and Sunny, I still haven't figured out how to make everything clicky either. I'm sure once I do, though, I'll feel like an idiot for not realizing how easy it was.

faye said...

i wish south park was returning sooner to get their take on tom and katie. *sigh*

dirtydisher said...

I can not deal with the neon flashing 'WINNER' signs here anymore. They give me migraines. I have tried putting post it's over them and moving my screen. GAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Vicki Cupper said...

Dirtydisher, install Adblocker. It's free and it totally works! Even the commercials on The Daily Show are blocked.

Linnea said...

I really wish I could walk out and get that NQ. Damn you Denmark and your lack of current US magazines!

SusanB said...

If this is on sale tomorrow when I go grocery shopping, I'm totally going to buy it, just because it'll piss the GMD off.

Kim's World said...

What is GMD?

MrPresident said...

Sue them Tom, Tabloid trash

The arrow on the cover appears to be pointing to the driveway...OF UNHOLY TERROR!

Vicki Cupper said...

Maybe it's pointing out the unholy oil leak from the unholy Lexus.

Nobody should use IE, and Chrome is tantamount to letting Google see everything you do.

Use Firefox. With AdBlocker and NoScript.

It must be exhausting to spend so much time hating others.

"It's weird to think that there are half-naked women roaming this planet, plopping themselves down in the bed of celebrity Scientologists and listening to the schizoid utterances of madmen."

Pretty sure the photographer is the only one talking during a photoshoot (and this is exactly what's the NI's half-naked women story is about).
