Most years on this date I try and write a missive or an open letter to Katie Holmes about why she should leave Tom Cruise and break free
. This year, I don't have to do that. I can share in her joy of freedom instead of mourning her 6th wedding anniversary. I wonder if Tom is ever going to see Suri again. We are well past the 100 day mark since he has seen her last. If you ever thought all those stories about Scientology splitting families was crap, I hope you have reconsidered. As much as I would like Suri to see her father, I also am grateful that she will probably not be sucked into the Scientology vortex that was inevitable if the couple stayed together. Katie Holmes to me looks like a struggling actress who happens to be a single mom. She is dressing a little worse, taking the subway more often than limos and attending fewer parties, but she looks happy. You can sense it. You can feel it. She broke free. She was in a cocoon for five years and was desperate to break free. No amount of luxury was worth more than her freedom or her child. Contrast that with Nicole Kidman who would still be reveling in all of that if Tom had not dumped her. I think that if Tom Cruise came calling right now that Nicole would divorce Keith Urban and get back with Tom. She is way too longing for what once was in her interviews and I feel like she never says anything nice about Keith that you would not say about the teacher of your 4th grader. They are nice. They have a warm heart. They are good with kids.
