What's on my mind....
From Catholicism to Scientology, a silent birth, and no Catholic baptism for the baby despite the fact that she's Catholic and a person can be Catholic and practice Scientoloty at the same time; all of this according to Tom Cruise. We haven't heard anything from Katie. Does anybody know if she can still talk at all? Maybe she isn't allowed to do so.
A rift has reportedly developed between her and Tom and her parents, devout catholics, over the religion thing. It's rumored that Tom had something to do with some sexy scenes in Katie's last movie being cut. He's also been quoted as saying that even though they're not yet married, "I'm not letting her get away from me."
It could very well be love and devotion that motivated that declaration, but the cynic in me says it sounds more like the insecure older man trying to to isolate and dominate the pretty, gullible, much younger woman.
I'm not at all into movie stars, and I don't normally follow them and their lives, but Tom's couch dance on Oprah was the first thing that got my attention. I didn't see the show. I caught the incident in passing on Entertainment Tonight or some such show as I was channel surfing. As a teacher, I am an advocate for children, and of course as a woman, I keep my eye out for other women. I see all kinds of red flags frantically waving in the background of this situation.
I could be wrong, in fact I hope I am, but I do think this young woman needs to grow a spine, regain her power of speech, and watch her back.
Katie girl, take the baby and RUN.
