Does She Get Paid Extra For That?

So, there are of course those who believe that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are in a contract marriage and that Katie gets paid a certain sum of money to pretend she actually likes Tom. In return he gets to be an obnoxious ass on a fairly regular basis and basically do nothing for her publicly except take the spotlight when she has done something.

Well, there was a report today that Tom has rehired his sister as his publicist. She of course is also a Scientologist and was his publicist in 2004 and 2005, and in my opinion was the reason his career did a crash and burn. Apparently he is loyal though.

What really caught my eye though was that the sister had to step in because Katie has been working so much on her play that she hasn't been able to fulfill all the pr duties he gives her to do.

"Katie's busy with her play in New York for the next six months. He needed someone to step in and take over. And Lee Anne stepped up to the plate."

Umm, I hope Katie is being paid extra because it is one thing if you have to pretend to sleep with him, but is quite another to be calling members of the media saying how much Tom is the greatest guy alive and also being his secretary. With all of the Scientologists in the world, he has Katie be his secretary and publicist? I hope there is something about that in the contract because that seems to be going above and beyond the call of duty. I mean that is like worse almost than if he made her help him with his Spanx each day. OK, maybe not quite that bad, because he probably is an ass about his Spanx.

oh, so tc's sister is going to take suri shopping and to the park and then she's going to pretend to have sex with tom? interesting!

What? It's not enough to just be married anymore? You have to do PR duties too? Geezus Tom, give Katie a break, it's no wonder she looks like death warmed over.

notachance, it's written into her stepford wife contract.

I think he is beyond any type of help at this point.

I agree with NAF Adrian, too much damage has been done to this guy's career and reputation at this point. If I were to ever see a TC movie, it would be in spite of him, not because of him.

The best thing he could do at this point would be to step out of the limelight for a few years. Focus on his role at UA and try to turn that around. Stop the photo ops with Katie and Suri and let her try her hand at actually acting again, rather than being a stunt. (I really liked her in Go and Pieces of April) Stop trying to be what he's not - a tall, strapping, hetero, superstar.

In a few years, the wackness that is currently TC will be forgotten and maybe he can re-establish himself as an actor that people will care about.

Right now, everything about this guy and his lifestyle creeps me out.

Apparently part of Katie's job is standing behind Tom with her knees bent, hands in pockets and pretending that no one is asking for her autograph.

In some of the recent photos Tom looks like he has had a nice little nip & tuck. I wonder if he shared a recovery suite with Posh?

I always thought that he "fired" his sister so that he could blame his crazy antics on her.

It's a classic celebrity move... when you look stupid, blame the publicist.

he always looks like a lesbian when he's in public.

cali girl,
NO ONE will EVER forget the wackness that is tom cruise. ever. world without end. amen.

of course, the re-hiring of his sister is good news for us, because it only means his crazy antics will start up again. it WAS scarily entertaining. you know he's crazy at home anyway, it's just now, we'll get to see it in public.

i'm willing to put money on it, this has something to do with his multi-million dollar german movie. i've turned off the TV twice when the entertainment shows showed teasers for it. i just can't deal with him at all.
poor, poor katie. poor suri, she doesn't have any say at all. at least there's some hope that katie will come to her senses. but you know, if she leaves, she will lose custody, it has to be in the contract.
