Today's Blind Items

So a really good one today as a way of saying thanks.

So this A list couple has been divorced for some time now. Each have moved on as divorced couples tend to do. My five ex-wives are grateful everyday they don't have to see me and the monthly checks I'm forced to send them keep them in Laboutin's and me in a basement. Anyway, there really was no reason given for the divorce. Just one day it was over. Out of the blue so to speak. Turns out that perhaps the lady in all of this was not really quite the lady we all thought. It's not that her husband minded because he really didn't. The problem was that our wife wasn't as discreet as perhaps she should have been and a huge secret was about to be revealed which neither the husband or wife really wanted. Seems that maybe the other man in this wife's life was not just some random guy off the street, but someone much closer. Each had their own reasons for keeping everything a secret. The wife really was happy being married to the husband which is why there were very few fireworks and instead just a resigned disappointment that she wasn't going to get to stay. The wife violated a rule and has slowly been eliminated from any contact with the ex and the ex's family.

Sounds like Tom and Nicole to me ... the fact that she is very rarely now photographed with her own kids ...

I had heard one of the reasons for the divorce was that she became pregnant by someone other than TC (shocking)... this would imply maybe a family member?...

Twisted Sister said...

My first thought was Tom and Nicole, too. One day they were blissful (eewww...) and the next day it was over and "Nicole knew what she did..." Wasn't that what TC said at the time?

april said...

I thought of Tom and Nicole also. The rumours at the time hinted at her becoming pregnant with Evan McGregor during the filming of Moulin Rouge, but were only whispers at the most.

Hez said...

Yeah, I'm feelin Nic Kid for this one, too.

Sweet "Laboutin" reference there, cap'n. All the praise today must have you in a good mood.

rebbeca romjin and john stamos maybe? she slept with one of his friends his bi-friends.

okay the tom and nicole one is a much better guess than mine

I will miss my anonymity.

donna said...

funny ..for some reason I am thinking the wife was doing the brother or someone close to the husband ..and the husband not minding cause she was his beard ...

Melissa said...

I am on board with the Tom and Nicole guess. Fits perfect

B :) said...

From what I can remember Nicole was supposedly having an affair with her trainer.

What was th rule? hmmnn

perefectiononparade said...

I think we need to see the "out of the blue" sentence as a clue of some sort. Any ideas?

Get a Life said...

Nicole had ovarian cancer and had a hysterectomy. I remember seeing her on an interview a long time ago talking about it and that's why she has no biological kids and never will. I don't get why she continues to be in the tabloids as possibly being preggers.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

Maybe one of Tom' lovers was bi???

Scandalous!

Tracee said...

Dang it looks like most of us are on the same page. Like April, I heard Nic got it on with Ewan.

Wonder what Tom's secret is? LOL!

Wait. Does that mean he used to beat Nic too? She's very shy and soft spoken...not sayin that all women who are, are getting the crap beat out of them, but...

Tracee said...

ooh, brendalove..good point. Maybe one of Tom's men slept with Nic and he didn't like that. That's reallly juicy.

Hotseat said...

get a life, i think what you're citing is the film malice, which nicole is in, and suffers that fate. At the time of her divorce, papers surfaced as evidence of a miscarriage she suffered. if she was barren, she wouldn't be able to misscarry.

littleoleme said...

So frickin' easy. Tom and Nicole. She was sleeping with Ewan during Moulin Rouge and got pregnant - she swings both ways. Her and Tom's deal was sleep with who you want but they had to be discreet and it never could be someone famous.

balis006 said...

Ohhhh its Tom and Nic.

Enty this was a very nice suprise.

Twisted Sister said...

Nicole Kidman is a frequent wearer of Christian Laboutin shoes, so that's a hint.

ur_lord_jinx said...

I agree this is Tom and Nicole. I wasn't into gossip at the time, but their breakup seemed to come from out of the blue.

-Cleo

syd said...

I think its close to Tom and Nicole too, but Hollywood has so many divorces that I can't keep track of them. It seems like a great place to be a lawyer.

april said...

Littleoleme,
I like your theory! I also remember, like someone else here said, that Tom's only words after the divorce were "she knows what she did." It made me think that they had some weird arrangement and that she had broken the rules somehow.
After marrying Keith she said that that they were hoping to have a kid of their own. I know nothing about a hysterectomy,- did she really have one?

F.

B :) said...

I never heard the hystererectomy either. I do remember him saying "she knows what she did" Was it on Oprah?

Allison said...

so nice to be here today :)

i <3 ent for what he did.

littleoleme said...

April - it's more than a theory. It was my friend who had to help get Ewan out of Nicole's hotel when the Aus. Seriously. The press got wind he was there. Nicole's sister was snuck in through the back and they had her walk out the front door so people said "idiots -it was her sister in her room". As for Tommy boy, there is an old Playboy interview with Mimi rogers after her divorce from Tom where she stated two things 1. Tom and her barely ever had sex "he lived like a monk" was the quote AND, she said, "he's sterile. He can't have kids". He himself said that on the Tonight Show in the early 90's. People either have forgotten this major fact or simply don't know about it. That's why dear little Suri being passed off as his is such a joke in Hwood.

Ashley said...

Ryan and Reese?

If the Laboutin's were a hint, is him being in the basement a hint, too? I seem to recall a blind item about someone in a basement, which was refreshing, since most blinds have people in the closet.

kellysirkus said...

I believe that Nicole Kidman got pregnant by her Orthopaedic Surgeon who was treating her knee after an injury on the Moulin Rouge set. His marriage was also destroyed by their affair. Nicole miscarried in January, a few weeks after Crazy Cruise dumped her for violating the terms of their contract.
Oddly enough, the reason I know this, my doctor (a woman who is friendly with the Ortho Dr's now-ex-wife) told me. I know, really comforting to know how discreet these physicians are.

littleoleme said...

For those who are interested here's a little more about Tom's relationships. They enter into a contract as a professional beard. he gets the look of a straight man they get the following:
As a foreigner (Nicole and Penelope) intros to the who's who of Hwood and a break into the market.
__ # of movies with Tom
If you marry him it's for x number of years with a review at the end of the contract period. Penelope could not go for that. That's when they ended. Tom and Nicole had come to the end of their contract AND she had become pregnant (she later miscarried). He was quick to file because if he waited another one or two months then by California law she would have gotten 1/2 of everything. He also threatened her by basically saying "you'll never work in this town again". People were so peeved when they heard this that they went out their way to work with her. She won an Oscar and a couple of other awards, his career went nowhere.

littleoleme said...

Wow. This girl gets around!

Twisted Sister said...

Littleoleme, I'm confused as to why she would get 50% if they had waited another two months, "by California law". California law calls for 50/50 division even with common law marriages, so this doesn't make sense. Also, I'm sure there was a pre-nup involved. Maybe the agreement according to the pre-nup would make her share larger in another two months, but I doubt he would ever agree to giving anyone as much as 50%.

april said...

Littleoleme,
thank you for that clarification! Weird how he admitted to being sterile years ago, and then 'regretted' telling it, or so it seems, later.
I remember another tidbit about Nicole and Tom from years before their divorce. Nicole had been picked up early from a get-together with some Hollywood friends by Tom, and her friends commented on how 'sweet it was that he couldn't be away from her for more that a couple of hours at a time'. I remember thinking about this when I saw pictures of him and Katie looking less than relaxed recently. He probably has some major control issues on top of everything else.

F.

j said...

I wonder if this is why she's very rarely with their children - they seem to be with Tom&Katie constantly.

B :) said...

I know Kellysirkus! JFK jr and Caroline had an unplanned pregnancy and he made her..
my former co-worker's sister was her ob/gyn and tried to talk her out of it.

I'm going to hell for blabbing.

B :) said...

Was there a picture of Nicole and the Dr.? I know there was one picture of and "her trainer" going down a staircase.

Tracee said...

Littleoleme,
You got some scoop hon! Tell me more. I'm glued! And what ur sayin' makes sense about the contract and such. And still not certain Suri is his.

April, oh yeah. I think Tom hit Nic a couple of times. It seems it's in his blood. Very creepy he would let them sleep with other people, but still want to be around them every second.

I'm lovin how we're taking this BI, as that guy on MadTV would say, to a whole...nother..LEVEL. :)

littleoleme said...

Twisted Sister - Take it for what it's worth as it's from Wikipedia -
The marriage was dissolved in 2001, with Cruise citing irreconcilable differences as the cause of the divorce. Tom Cruise filed for divorce in February 2001. Cruise, who did not have a prenuptial agreement with Kidman, states that the marriage ended in December and lasted precisely nine years and 11 months. That California judges look differently upon marriages that last at least a decade when it comes time to divvy up the estate, obviously, had nothing to do with the 'irreconciliable differences' that Tom Cruise cited had arisen.

This site supposedly bleongs to a lawyer. Perhaps they could clarify the division of property = to years married question.

Twisted Sister said...

I'm never sure how much of the info on Wikipedia I should take seriously either.

Good idea on asking EL. If I bat my eyelashes, maybe he'll weigh in.

EL???? What do you think?

sandra_cort said...

I don't believe the wikipedia part about them not having a pre-nup. It is really unbelievable that they would have a marriage contract, but no pre-nup? Maybe they did have one, but it wasn't made public, hence the wikipedia entry. But then again I have no idea how the California family laws are. I do know they are really different from other states and that's why a lot of people go and get married there.

I just know the laws here in Texas, but Ent could you please give us some insight into the 10 year rule and prenup laws in CA? We would really appreciate it!

Thanks!
-Lucky

kellysirkus said...

the legal issue in California with the "10 year rule" does not pertain to division of property. It refers to the alimony payments. If you are married less than ten years, you will receive alimony for half the term of the marriage. If you are married for ten years then you get alimony for a time equal to the full term of the marriage. However, it is my understanding that this not written law, but rather "precedent." It does, however, seem very much to be the rule, and almost all CA attys advise their clients based on this standard.

Anonymous said...

Wouldn't the contract be the pre-nup? Of course they can't disclose that there is a prof beard contract in lieu of a formal pre-nup....

ronni said...

This is all very juicy, but this is not a blind item, its just old news rehashed to seem like one. Still not buying this ent.

I'm sorry to break the news to ya'll but your wrong on this one. This is about the divorce between Brooke Shields and Andre Agassi. He filed for divorce. She was "blindsided". Rumours were that she was too close to his brother. The blue clue is for Blue Lagoon her movie.
By the way, are Tom and Kate the answer to all the BI?

cj4 said...

Deifnitely Tom and Nicole. Nicole starred in a play in London and on Broadway several years ago (around 1999, as I recall) called "The Blue Room." It was famous because both she and her co-star appeared fully naked on stage, although I saw it and thought the play was pretty great regardless of the nudity. In any event, there were lots of rumors at the time that Nicole had an affair with the co-star and perhaps got pregnant by him.

syd said...

I thought the 10 year rule was lifetime alimony, and the pre-nup gets tossed out the window. It's like if you want to divorce someone do it before it gets to expensive, or once you make it to 10 years its smooth sailing.

Tee+Vee said...

Okay ... I don't wanna be a p***y party pooper w/my new name & all (ha) but it's

LOUBOUTIN

Tom & Nicole seem like such old news. I can't tell if I like them for this or not. If it's them: SNOOZEVILLE. Well, for anyone whose been paying the least bit of attention to celeb gossip.

Hez said...

Tee+vee, Laboutin is a purposeful mispelling - it references an ongoing joke on this board that has to do with ZX. She spelled it wrong once and the trolls jumped on that as evidence she was a "fake".

It's also used by posters here to refer to a typo.

Tee+Vee said...

Hez ...

Whoops! Thanks for the scoop. The "joke" hurts my eyes though. Off to find a Latty!

Tee+Vee said...

Have a CREEPY non-T/N guess ... what about Tatum O'Neil & John McEnroe? And the "too close for comfort lover": RYAN O'NEIL. Eh, at least it's spicy!

Linda said...

People missed another clue pointing to Tom/Nic: "the lady in all of this" - Nicole starred in "The Portrait of a Lady".

Twisted Sister said...

Another clue is "very few fireworks", referencing TC's movie, "Born on the Fourth of July".

buvez.rose said...

found some juicy gossip about t/n/k/s:

"Let me asked you, do you really believe that kid is his? This guy can’t have kids, You want to know why? Because he was a male hustler from the age of 16 to 19 and he was very naive. At one point he caught Syphilis, but he had no idea what it was. He (thought) he lubrified more. He waited so long to get it checked out that now he’s sterile.’

Patricia said that Kenneth said he knows this because he and (Tom Cruise) shared the same urologist. Of course, for the benefit of the Cruise rabid legal team, I don’t have a video of the controversial appearance so I won’t vouch for the validity but I’m sure it’s yet another convenient little crack in the dream that’ll go ignored by the amateur gossip"
apparently from lainey gossip

makes for very interesting deductions....

Christine said...

OMG, this one is so friggin easy. It's gotta be Tom & Nik. The guy she cheated with must be Jude Law.

Here's my interpretation of the clues:

A list
Divorced
Both moved on = he with "Kate Cruise", she with Keith Urban
Laboutin's = she's always rockin' these shoes
Blue = "The Blue Room" play that nicole starred in, made infamous by her nude scene
Lady = "Portrait of a lady"
Husband didn't ordinarily mind her dalliances = that's because Tom's a pillow biter--allegedly
Closer = The guy she had an affair with was probably Jude Law, who starred in the movie Closer. I remember seeing pictures of Nik and Jude with her hand up his thigh. I think she even released a statement denying that she was the cause of the breakup with his wife, Sadie Frost.
Fireworks = This is the biggest clue. For their 10th anniversary (on New Years eve, I think--just before the break-up), Tom & Nicole renewed their vows in a splashy ceremony, which included a huge fireworks display. Then, Tom inexplicably alleged that they didn't actually ever hit the 10 year mark and moved back the date of separation to December, b/c he wanted to avoid paying her big bucks.
Eliminated from any contact = We hardly ever see Nik with the kids

P.S. Is it true that, during the auditing process, the subject is videotaped and asked to reveal his/her deepest and most embarassing secrets, so that the subject can in the future be manipulated/blackmailed?

B :) said...

The French disease as some historians have called it.
It was rampant during medieval times a great deal of royal children were born with syphillus. However,the parents were fertile but infected. Most of their offspring were infertile or had still born children.

B :) said...

Jude Law the real father of Kate Moss' daughter Lila.

Megan said...

christine - that is a great analysis, but cold mountain with jude law came out late 2003, much after the breakup. i do remember hearing the nik sitting on jude's lap and stuff. i don't know when they filmed it, but it would have to have been 2 years prior for it to be around the same time as the breakup. thoughts?

kympossible said...

Def Tom and Nicole. The "out of the blue" ref screams "Vanilla Sky" to me!

Beth said...

In California, after 10 years the spouse is entitled to A LOT more than if it was 9 yrs/11 months. He'd have to pay her 50/50 after 10 years. Given, I'm sure she got a good settlement as they were married when both were having successful careers so she still had 10 years of "community property" they assessed during their time together. They were pretty quiet with the settlement. She got the Sydney home, he got the Telluride home, etc.

She did have a miscarriage. I knew her bodyguard at the time. There was a photo of her coming from an appointment with her ob/gyn at UCLA medical center in Westwood after the split/miscarriage. He confirmed it did happen, that Nicole was devastated by the bust-up but was a sweetheart to work for.

Possible timeline...

I think the Kidman-Cruise split was announced in Feb of 2001, with Cruise alleging Dec of 2000 as the time of separation. Although Cold Mountain didn't come out in theaters until 2003, and a formal denial of a Kidman-Law affair wasn't issued until Feb 2003, the actual affair, if it did happen, could have occurred during casting and pre-production of Cold Mountain during mid to late 2000. According to Yahoo movies, this film took about 2 years to cast. Interestingly, Cruise was at one time considering the project, but dropped out right around the time of the split. Also interesting is that Kidman adamantly denied the affair, filed suit and won in Oct of 2003. She donated all the proceeds to a Romanian orphanage near the filming location.

B :) said...

Could the secret be that Tom is hermaphrodite?

plotterist said...

To little ole me -

Nicole isn't a foreigner. She was born in Hawaii and is a US citizen. She was pretty young and clueless when Tom nabbed her - and he was horrible to her from the beginning. Friends who worked on Days of Thunder were shocked how badly Tom treated her, screamed at her, called her an amateur, refused to leave his trailer until she could recite her lines perfectly outside the door, if Tom messed up his blocking or lines (he can't read and learns his scripts through recordings) he would lay into Nicole as "unhelpful". Why she married him, i don't know, because he was very abusive towards her.

Twisted Sister - in California, after 10 years spouses have a right to better alimony and division of assets. Ent would know better, but the length of marriages in CA makes a world of difference, prenup or not.

to christine -

$cientology auditing sessions are meticulously documented and scoured later for personal embarrassing info for blackmailing if the $cientologist tries to leave. John Travolta tried to escape in the mid 80s, and that's when the gay rumours started to haunt him. Scientology "saved" him from Paul Barisi by ordering Kelly Preston into marriage (which has no license on file, btw.)

b:) is correct. Syphilis does not make one infertile. It might cause lots of miscarriages and stillborns (ala Henry VIII's wives) or kids born with the disease, but it doesn't kill sperm.

Nicole had ovarian cysts, according to my best sources, and was treated for that and eating disorders at one point in her marriage to Tom (Menniger Clinic in Kansas.) She would have great difficulty in getting pregnant, though it wouldn't be impossible.

Tom is infertile, too.

The miscarriage rumour was supposedly Nicole launching a warning shot across the bow of Tom's tugboat. If he was going to use all his $cientology goons to try and destroy her, and contest the pregnancy, then she was ready to fight back. Tom would have to admit he was sterile if he was to claim the phantom pregnancy was a fake or not his. Tom couldn't do this, and it stopped his publicity machine cold.

So, what was the rule Nicole violated? I don't think it was Ewan (though filming with Ewan for months might make any woman want to ditch a freaky, frothing, midget and find a real man.) It had to be someone who also seriously violated Tom's trust by taking up with Nicole. I'm stumped.

syd said...

Plotterist that is all very interesting and thought out, now I want to know what rule she violated. Also what does he have on her to keep her away from her kids. Now the BI is going to be something I can't stop thinking of.

I hope other people who are much better at digging up dirt then me start looking. Cause I will never find anything.

kellysirkus said...

the Rule she violated was getting pregnant

B :) said...

Plotterist more insight,please. :)

B :) said...

I vaguely remember reading about Nicole being spotted leaving a fertility center durung that time. Could she have gone by the way of California Cryo and cherry picked a donor?

spasuzy said...

Although this BI is probably about Tom and Nicole, I just want to point out that we don't see Nicole around her kids often because Nicole wants to keep that part of her life as private as possible. She doesn't use them for publicity and photo ops like half of Hollywood does - including her Ex. If you think about it, we didn't see her with them that much during their marriage. The ex-family members probably refer to his family and not their kids.

Hez said...

I really think the "rule" she violated was that she talked to a shrink. Or maybe a priest. Wasn't she raised Catholic by parents who are psychiatrists?

They don't know the history of psychiatry. Tom DOES.

She's well shut of him in my opinion.

Pimmy said...

I remember hearing about an overheard half of a cell phone conversation between Tom & Nicole in which she reportedly said "This marriage is hanging by a thread!" This was easily a couple of years before they divorced. I think Tom & Nicole's bliss was the result of good PR, rather than good marriage. Keith Urban is the anti-Tom, for real.

syd said...

I have been trying to find out the custody agreement because that would be public record right? No one seems to know. Oh well.

Totally sounds like Tom and Nic.

Wonder if it was related to her pregnancy? Not his?

He's really only ever said that Nicole knows why things ended, insinuating she was to blame.

syd said...

I guess they have joint custody. So does that mean she can't see her mother in law of almost 10 years but she can see her kids? I think she might like that trade off.

Mia said...

I know that if you speak out against the church or divulge any $cientology info or info about any $cientologist that they don't approve of, you can be found non-compliant and basically ex-communicated from your family, home, career, etc. They have super-strict military-like rules and yes, the "monitoring" or "auditing" sessions are aimed at you basically confessing your sins to people who use them against you in the future... Maybe since Tom is such a whack-o, she went against the church?

You should read up on Scientology and/or L.Ron Hubbard's fraudulent para-militant religion sometime, it's BIZARRE.

Rhianna said...

Um, as gross as it seems - didn't Tommy boy ditch his sister shortly after the divorce? Is there a possibility SHE was the one that was too close to him and broke the contract?

Now I'm suffering from full-body shudders of revulsion. It's a horrible, horrible thought but one that sounds too true to ignore.

dimes said...

Does anyone else remember reading stories in the UK gossip columns about Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig when she was appearing in The Blue Room?

I think the Sun even ran a picture of them together in the back of a London cab, but I can't remember if they were making out or not.

It could be the story is surfacing now because Kidman and Craig are in a new movie, and they're on the cover of W together.

http://www.style.com/w/feat_story/010307

Amanda said...

Sounds like a done and dusted conclusion- Tom and Nicole.

If anyone is interested in Scientology, check out the website Operation Clambake. It's run by and supports ex-scientologists. There are some horror stories on there, let me tell you! There are also documents scanned from Scientology books and papers. Fascinating but terrifying stuff.

Twisted Sister said...

We're all just speculating here. For all we know, she had the kids baptized in the Catholic church or gave them medication when they were ill or something. We may learn the answer when Andrew Morton comes out with his tell all, if any publisher will handle it.

MissBliss said...

Rhianna, im pretty sure that Tom ditched his sister much much more recently. I thought it was around the time of the oprah couch-jumping appearance and when he got dumped by his studio. I could be wrong though.

I think this item is DEF about T&N

Twisted Sister said...

TC fired his sister in November 2005.

donna said...

say it is about tom and nicole, why now ...they have been apart for so long, why the renewed interest? is there something larger lurking behind this bi?

Anonymous said...

see this is why i think ent should post hints that include who it isn't. were all saying tom cruise but what if it is someone else?

Anonymous said...

I think Tom hired his sister after their divorce and then had the worst PR year of his creepy life with the Oprah couch-jumping, getting into it with Brooke Shields and Matt Lauer, getting fired from his production parent company (or something like that) etc. He finally relegated her to a different role within his org and found a true PR person.
OK, going out on a limb here, if the rule Nicole broke was getting pregnant, I'm sort of confused on why it ended things or why it would have been the rule. It seems they would have to have had some sort of an open, but very discrete, marriage, unless she went without sex for 10 years (shudder at the thought). Wouldn't he have welcomed a pregnancy to prove he was virile and into women? I mean, the first thing he did with Katie was to get her pregnant (although i don't believe he himself did the deed). Unless they both knew the baby would not resemble him in any way and he could not possibly claim it... ie mixed race? Or if they knew the real father would step forward and lay claim? Maybe it was imperative that scientology choose the baby daddy and Tom would not lay claim to a child not of his paternal choosing? Just seems like a pregnancy would have laid some of the rumors to rest and might have helped him a bit.

Didn't Nicole start dating Lenny Kravitz shortly after the divorce...

To Plotterist 7:19 - she may have been born in Hawaii but she lived in Australia from the age of 4. That's 20 some odd years of living in another country. I think most would call that a "foreigner". Is that better?

spasuzy said...

I wouldn't call Nicole a foreigner since she is a natural born citizen of the US.

parisss said...

http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0225051cruise1.html

You should check out this page. It has T & N's confidentiality agreement for "hired help". There's also a couple other interesting things on there.

littleoleme said...

For those of who who don't consider Nicole Kidman a ,notice quotes, "foreigner" so when she first appeared in Dead Calm or Days of Thunder and/or you heard her speak with an Austrailian accent you thought "oh yeah, she's from the States'. Stop being silly.

littleoleme said...

correction - Australian

parisss said...

She's Australian. Let's not get too literal here. She may have been born in one place, but she spent most of her life and was raised in Australia. Anyone asked what country she is from, would say Australia.

Stephanie said...

Daniel Craig is gay, so no… Nicole and Craig didn't have an affair.

I also think the BI is about Tom and Nicole. Nicole became pregnant and as reported earlier, Tom is sterile, so the daddy was someone else. I suspect Nicole was having an affair with Ewan McGregor and Russell Crowe at various points in her marriage. Anyone remember that Russell wrote a song about Nicole?

Anyway, her reps said she had a miscarriage, but perhaps she had an abortion. ??? Either way the marriage was over due to her lack of discretion.

You’ll notice that you rarely see her with her own kids (daughter Isabella and son Connor) and you never see her with Tom and Katie in spite of the fact that she is Bella and Conner's mom.

spasuzy said...

I've never been outside North America and everyone thinks I sound like I'm from England...go figure. Of course Nicole is recognized as being Australian but she is, in fact, not a foreigner to the US. She's a citizen. (I looove being literal) Chill guys...I thought it was going to be fun in here now.

Stephanie said...

Lyrics to "Somebodyelse's Princess" by 30 Odd Foot of Grunts
(Russell Crowe's band)

Red hair deep blue eyes
My baby gets me so good
She got the franchise

Take me away
She takes me up
Feed my needs
Keeps me sharp
Keeps me pumped

I'm splitting out my skin
She's got me in a mess
So deeply imbedded
In somebody else's princess
Oh good Lord

Out in the garden
Under the stars
I'm dreaming of her laughing
And driving a fast car
Crazy, crazy
Shiver and shake
Baby's got me cracking
Like I'm in an earthquake

Love unrequited
Love unrequited
Jamming up my system
I'm melting with desire
Take me away
She takes me up
Feeds my needs
Keeps me sharp

Tom had the best publicist (manager?) in the business, Pat Kingsley. She looks even better since Tom fired her and exposed his freaky little self to the world.

Pat was fired because she would not support Tom's cause as the "Jesus of $cientology" (yes, the phrase has been used by $cientology goons.) Tom wants to surround himself with $cientologists exclusively these days. He promoted his sister which was a PR disaster, and sis' left for philanthropic ventures within the cult (looting the public for the $cientology war chest.)

We need no further proof that Tom is certifiable than the firing of Pat Kingsley.

To littleoleme -

Sorry about my tone. Generally, I'm short and cranky but mean no offense. Friends?

Nicole was very familiar with US culture. Cate Blanchett's father was a Texan and Sienna Miller's father is from Pittsburgh. It's difficult, in my literal head, to call any of them foreign to the US.

Russell Crowe writes really bad lyrics, doesn't he.

littleoleme said...

Wow. Now we know why his music career went nowhere.
P.S. Thank you Parisss.

Stephanie, I'm convinced, as I posted the link to the story about RC and Nic vacationing together shortly after her split with TC is '01. What puzzles me is they were both single for a couple years after her divorce; what prevented them from being together? If he loved her that much, I'm sorry he couldn't be with her, for whatever reason.

(God, it must be truly amazing to be loved by Russell Crowe)

She was really uncomfortable and tense in that interview she did with RC earlier this year for Oprah or Babs. Although I warmed up to her towards the end when she said she wanted a goat cause I love goats too. Hee. Anyway, does anyone remember a few years ago her Australian home was found to have been bugged by several devices? It was in the news and then... nothing. Tom up to his dirty tricks methinks. Gawd. He gets away with everything.

Hez said...

She "keeps me sharp?" WTF kind of lyric is that?

What is she, a sparring coach?

Is she grilling him with flash cards or something? Is he entering the big spelling bee?

littleoleme said...

Sunny, hate to burst your bubble but I know RC's former personal assistant. Seems that RC is a huge coke head and mean ass jerk of the highest order. People were not allowed to look at him or speak to him (at his owm dinner parties!! They were supposed to sit quietly at the table). I guess he borders on crazy he's so mean/unpredictable/demanding. But then who knows, maybe that was the coke.

sunny said...

RC's former personal assistant is suspiciously free of the requisite confidentiality agreement, isn't s/he?

People were not allowed to look at him or speak to him (at his owm dinner parties!!

THAT is total hogwash. If nothing else, RC is a gregarious soul who loves conversation, especially with people he invited to his own dinner party.

Sheesh. What is this obsession with making RC seem like the worst person who ever lived?

"she keeps me sharp" is not too difficult to understand. Some people challenge us, intellectually, emotionally, professionally, while others are boring and predictable.

Did T/N do a movie called Eyes, or some such. I vaguely remember hearing that they had to hire a coach for the love scenes because it was so cold and mechanical; that they couldn't make it look real.

Eyes Wide Shut. AWFUL!!!

kchal said...

Ummm.. this is the same 'saintly' RC you are talking about right:
"The fiery actor recently pleaded guilty to assault after throwing atelephone at a hotel worker in June...

kchal said...

Regardless, I still think it is T/N but wish that the blind had given the GOOD part of the gossip - WHAT CAUSED IT to happen???

8MilesHigh said...

Sunny -

We get what Russell meant, completely. It's a stupid lyric, as poetry it sucks.

Nicole as a knife, or whetstone? Grinding away? Excuse me?

Eyes Wide Shut was so bad I couldn't even laugh, very painful.

Poor Kubrick. That movie killed him.

Tracee said...

Those lyrics are like a bad Dr. Suess poem. He stretching to make things rhyme. How can she feed his needs if the love is unrequited? just askin'

So let's see what we got on the burner:

Nic was abused and mistreated by Tom

Tom can't read

Tom is the Jesus of Scientology

Nic miscarried or. pretended to miscarry

Nic doesn't get to see the children b/c she broke contract

Nic cheated with Russell or Ewan

Russell won't let anyone talk to him

Russell can't write good lyrics

Nic is foreign vs. not foreign

Eyes Wide Shut is a horrible movie

And the debate continues. Let's see how it develops.

This is gettin good!
-munching on popcorn-

Hez said...

Sunny, I wasn't implying that I didn't understand it -- the code wasn't too hard to crack -- it's just not much of a lyric.

As an actor he's okay, and if I want someone to come over and break my deck furniture, he's definitely TOP of my list, but inspirational love song writer? Sorry, Russ... not today.

DeborisAnna said...

Tracee, I agree...I've already been thru a brat, a chocolate ice cream cone and some starbursts...getting real good!

littleoleme said...

10:22 - Give your head a f*&kin' shake. My friend had to leave due to the abuse stress. Not everyone is smart enough to get a confidentiality agreement everytime. RC is a f*&king drug addict with serious issue. Sorry for the anger but my friend went through shit with this guy and had to take 6 months off before even tyring to get back to his life. I know you'd like to think RC is great guy but I hate to tell you that almost no one is what they seem in Hwood. Don't comfuse the character with the person.

Tracee said...

Heeheee. Dinner and a show, deborisanna. :)

sunny said...

10:22 - Give your head a f*&kin' shake

Umm, no. Ever the beefy, brawny RC on a coke diet? Don't think so. The problem is, almost no one on the internet is what they seem, much less H'wood.

Tell your friend he (ostensibly) has a good civil action if he was incapacitated for six months due to abuse, as long as the statute of limitations hasn't passed. Even if he did have a confidentiality agreement. I'm sure he knows that, right?

littleoleme said...

He's a lawyer.
He knows.
He didn't care. He just wanted to get away. It was more important to get his life back then to get vindication or $$. He works for gov't now and has a his sanity back. You should hear the stories he tells. Most actors act like petty, spoiled children. My friend doesn't worry about RC finding out about his mouthing off as he now lives nowhere near Hwood or any other major industry city.
P.S. If you drink a ton of beer etc. as well that helps to keep the weight on.

Regarding the 9 year 11 month deal, I heard that in T & N's agreement, she agreed to remain married for 10 years, and then would reap certain unknown benefits. Since at that time, it was thought that Tom was sterile, it was felt that Nic could not pass off the pregnancy as Tom's. She violated a rule of exposing their "arrangement" by getting pregnant when he could not be the father. He hurried to divorce so he was not obligated to the benefits promised after 10 years.

The question is, is he truly sterile, or not? Could Suri be a test tube baby? And in reference to the comments of her being mixed race or "Asian" - I think that's a bunch of hooey. If you look closely at Katie's eyes, they have a fold of skin at the inner eyelids. (see this photo here http://bullshit-detection.com/kholmes_mouth_sm.jpg) On the baby it is more pronounced. I think as she ages, she will look more and more like Katie. Whether Tom had anything to do with it is another question.

BBC News, May '01:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/showbiz/1312413.stm

"On 24 December the parties had happily celebrated their 10th anniversary with a group of friends.

The couple starred in Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut

"During the balance of December and thereafter the parties were intimate; in fact respondent became pregnant by petitioner (Cruise) but lost the baby through miscarriage."

Things that make you go hmmm...

plotterist said...

Look for a picture of Tom's cousin that Mapother fellow from Lost. Then tell me who Suri looks like. The crooked nose, the heavy droopy fold in the outer eye lids, it's awfully weird.

Sweater said...

laf I sure think Suri looks like Chris Klein. But hey..it's just speculation :)
That kid must be paid off somewhere because he's certainly not acting in big things these days and c'mon..why hasn't he sold a story about Katie to a magazine by now?

What's the cost..a soul. Scientologists seem to know the answer.

Virgo74 said...

Tom and Nicole!! It was a very sudden split and she was pregnant at the time.
