Tom Cruise contemplates a reality show, showing private life with Katie


Does Xenu approve of reality shows? ‘Tis a question for the ages. Various British sources are claiming that Tom Cruise is “contemplating” a reality show. But it’s a weird story – I think the gist is that it would be more like a short documentary series about Tom and Katie’s life together, with Xenu Suri rather. Tom wants complete control of it, and you know what? Even though this sounds like total bullsh-t, it’s something Tom really should consider. I would totally watch a Tom Cruise reality show, if it focused on his life with the Kate-Bot.

TOM CRUISE is reportedly in talks to give the world a glimpse into his life with wife KATIE HOLMES as part of a TV documentary.

The Hollywood actor has been a regular in the gossip columns ever since he began dating the former Dawson’s Creek star, but the celebrity couple has managed to keep most of the details of their romance private.

Cruise is now said to be considering opening up their marriage by releasing footage he filmed of his wife and their young daughter, Suri, and is in talks with TV bosses about a possible show, according to Britain’s Grazia magazine.

A source tells the publication, “He’s been filming Katie and other aspects of his life for the past month. The original impetus was that he would select a few personal clips to show fans, but word has got out through his agents (CAA) and he is currently fielding offers from entertainment companies. Tom is now deliberating what to do with his footage. No deal has been struck…”

“Tom places a premium on control, so he’s reluctant to commit to doing a reality TV show unless he’s 100 per cent certain it will reflect him and Katie in the best light possible… Releasing documentary footage is a way of getting closer to his public.”

My guess is that the closest he’ll ever come to doing something like this is maybe a television documentary, like they did for Madonna or Mick Jagger, with Primetime or whatever, following Tom around for a few weeks and they compile it into a two-hour special. It’s not going to be like, a Martin Bashir extravaganza. I also think that Tom might be contemplating various things to get his career on track, after Knight & Day’s bad domestic box office. Does Tom think that if we get to see him in private, we’ll like him more? That’s an interesting bet. Because the way I imagine Tom and Katie in private – yikes. My idea of it: Katie spends her days popping pills and spending Tom’s money, while Tom has “extracurricular activities” with various lithe young men – discreetly, of course. I didn’t even think Katie and Tom even spent that much time together anymore?

    stop being so freaking desperate you little thing, damn tom is making me abhor his arse

  2. Annie says:

    OMG! I got the heebejeebies just reading the headline to this story. Crrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeepy!

  3. Sumodo1 says:

    Kate smirking and Kate in Mom Jeans. Can’t wait for the show. Princess Suri will probably narrate in a “Masterpiece Theatre” voice. Excellent. So weird it HAS to be true. He’s that egotistical.

  4. bellaluna says:

    Oh, dear Xenu, NO!!!!!!!!!!

  5. meme says:

    Tom, Please pack your money and go.

  6. hanh says:

    Yeah I totally don’t think they would do a reality show. They don’t need to. A documentary – maybe but that will only prove how nutz they are if anything else.

    I do think that Tom is completely gay. That Kate is a drug addict and trapped in this relationship both by her desire to have all that money, life with Suri, and the whole fame aspect. She knows she’s pretty much nothing without Tom Cruise as her acting career is going nowhere fast.

  7. Spring says:

    Notice when they’re holding hands his knuckles are always white? Like she’s a toddler going to make a break for it or something. And he always looks like he’s “steering” her somewhere.


  8. denise says:

    Katie has terrible teeth, and her feet :(
    She has gotten so strange, since she hooked up with Tommy. Weird things go on in that household for sure, why don’t they show us that instead of their fake lives.

  9. lucy2 says:

    Part of me says no way they’d do this, but…he did basically publicize their whole relationship right from the start when trying to sell MI3. Plus his career and ego has taken a hit, so who knows? But I agree he’d probably only do it if he could control every second of screen time.
    Though I’d probably give in and watch out of sick curiosity, I think it would be a mistake for him to put so much focus on his private life – 1, because it’s just not healthy, and 2, because his private life is what’s had a negative impact on his career and image.
    The best thing he could do would be to keep his personal life private, and concentrate on making better films, ones that don’t always involve him being Mr. Action Hero.

  10. realwoman72 says:

    what a joke they both are and “reality show” but only show us in a good light, really… Think much of yourself Tommy Girl… does “eyes Wide Shut” ring a bell, movie with that wife then divorce… repeat coming….She sucks as an actress, singer and dancer so I guess if she makes it as Katie-bot for Tom then she at least can spend his money…

  11. KateNonymous says:

    They have a private life?

  12. Anonymous says:

    Contact Music has a history of releasing positive PR BS on Scientologist celebrities; their questionable articles don’t even have by-lines! This stupid article is no exception. I think they have a sympathetic employee there who does everything possible to keep Xenu’s children in the news. In short, poppycock!

  13. Lady Nightshade says:

    Anyone remember when Oprah went to their house with Tom and Katie showed up? It was so awkward and staged, I couldn’t imagine a whole show full of fake smiles and constant “I love you”s

  14. Gail says:

    I keep reading that, Kate has crooked teeth. I don’t see it. No, she doesn’t have that lined-up-on-a-rail-super-glowing-white-big-chiclets set of freaky dentures that is standard issue for most celebs. Her teeth look like regular non-famous folks straight teeth, which aren’t ruler perfect.

  15. Jeri says:

    It seems like a long time since we’ve seen her parents visit.

  16. Cheyenne says:

    How long does he think their private life is going to remain private if they do a reality show?

  17. Ron says:

    Reality Show + Movie Star = Career Suicide

  18. Lindsay says:

    hanh- What do you think she is on?

  19. dread pirate cuervo says:

    This “reality” show would be the biggest acting challenge of Katie’s career! But seriously, I think it would be awesome, & I would totally watch. If Tom is in character as LG.

  20. truthSF says:

    OMG!!! In that top photo Katie looks like an android, she doesn’t even look completely human. Stepford wife Katie Cruise transformation is complete!

  21. Raven says:

    A-list celebs and Cruise is A-list, don’t do reality shows. D-list celebs and celeb wannabes do reality shows. A documentary is something else and Martin Scorsese’s doc on the Rolling Stones, for example, is a classic. He might be interested in the latter, but never the former.

  22. susan says:

    In that last photo, her baby bangs look like a lobotomy scar.

  23. CadieBelle says:

    LOVE this idea – it would get fantastic viewership – at least for the first few episodes. Think this is really what Tom needs right now. I am serious.

  24. benny says:

    They can’t possibly need money this badly, can they? And Tom better re-think the idea — the more people get to see the “real” Tom, the more they can’t stand to even watch his movies any more. His career is best when we don’t know anything about him personally. They more we know, the more we don’t like.

  25. benny says:

    Oh, and the first picture of Katie is hideous! What the HELL did she do to her face? She used to be pretty (emphasis on the “used to be”). Instead of railing against drugs for psychiatrict treatment, he should have spoken out against bad plastic surgery. Now THAT’S an area of medicine that needs some criticism. But I guess that (bad plastic surgery) is just fine and dandy, huh?

  26. Maritza says:

    Now that would be a reality show I would definitely watch!

  27. elle says:

    That show would have the crap edited out of it. Who gives a shit anyway?

  28. original kate says:

    will it be on the sci-fi channel?

  29. TG says:

    I agree, her teeth look fine to me. I am actually surprised she didn’t go for the fake horse teeth everyone in hollywood is sporting. Love the second picture she looks bored and annoyed to be leading her boy around.

  30. missmilly says:

    HAHAHAHAHA KAISER you are a God, I mean really….the pictures you chose for this article were OUTSTANDING!!! SUPER FUNNY! PERFECTION!

  31. e-non says:

    i would watch it for the unedited footage of that kid. too bad that shit will never make the cable lineup.

  32. Madisyn says:

    You just know Suri is a grade A brat, who has been given EVERYTHING her little heart desires. Can you just imagine the temper tantrums?

  33. Beth says:

    Grazia is extremely unreliable. A tv special wouldn’t be pathetic since a lot of a, b-listers do that. But a reality show would be a career ender. That’s insanely desperate and pathetic.

  34. anon says:

    Does he and his people actually believe there’s still enough of the general public who would buy his version of REALITY?? Havent most seen through the false image he has sold and continues to sell? Not to judge though…it’s not like most of Hollywood isnt doing the same.

  35. Ruffian9 says:

    original kate: BWA HAHAHAHAHA


  36. Kim says:

    Are they really that desperate to show people they are the “perfect couple” we all know they arent? Who cares about their private life- these 2 are as boring as can be.

  37. I look forward to watching all of the Scientology goons in the background.

  38. belle Epoch says:

    Oh Puhleeeze. Tiny Tom is a control freak. This is just another way of putting his “brand” out there. This would be an Info-Mercial, not a reality show, and certainly nothing “private.” It would be relentlessly posed, contrived, and edited to show his family in the best possible light. It would not get within a million miles of the things we want to know about, like their freaky Scientology rituals, Suri’s tantrums, why he is always clenching Katie so hard her skin turns white, or why Katie looks like a zombie all the time.

  39. Catherine says:

    Remember when they first were married and Katie had such great style? What happened to that girl?

  40. CB Rawks says:

    “The Hollywood actor has been a regular in the gossip columns ever since he began dating the former Dawson’s Creek star”

    Who is the insano who wrote this line? Like THAT’S when he came to our attention? What a deluded crock.

  41. Chris says:

    No matter what publicity stunts Tom pulls he’s never going to be as hot as he was when he was in his prime. If he continues to fight it he’s only going to look progressively more desperate and pathetic. The appearance he made at the Black Eyes Peas concert and the skit he did with Robert Pattinson reeked of a fading star desperately trying to stay relevant. As for the doco, all that’ll be is a propaganda piece driven by Tom to sell the image he wants the world to see.

    Tom should try and grow old gracefully. We can’t all be Mick Jagger.

  42. Lindsay says:

    CB Rawks – Come on! Everybody knows the only reason he is still relevant is because he is Mr. Katie Holmes. Thats why he always talks about how amazing she is, tries to portray her in a positive light, goes around spending her money and using her name to get parts while following her around like a puppy.

    … Maybe I’m confused. In the words of Willy Wonka, “Strike that, reverse it.” Thanks for pointing out that sentence I didn’t catch that and it was pretty funny. If he does do this and it is a big IF i will be a thinly veiled Scientology infomercial. (He does have the manic energy of the late Billy Mays)

  43. Mentok the Mind Taker says:

    Ok, I gotta…

    are they gonna call it “Suri-ality Cruise”?

  44. cruiz2 says:

    Jeepers Creepers – I imagine we’ll see Katie and Suri tap dancing throughout their many homes, with Tom as a quest appearance. Yuck & not interested in their phony fading unreal lifestyle. Sad grasping attempt to stardom.

  45. Dr_Venkman says:

    Actually, the show is currently pitched to networks by Suri.

    The working title is “Living With Imperfection” and is mostly about Kate’s bad wardrobe choices.

  46. MsDeb says:

    First, broke my ankle, so no high heels for me. That having been said, have you ever noticed how often she wears shoes with a heel? Perhaps her way of showing a little rebellion? I was married to a man my same height, and spent 20 years in flats. Now, married to a man 6’10″ tall, and still in flats. Life is just sometimes not fair! As to reality show, don’t see it happening. To create a one hour show, for example, from clips, where each moment only reflects positively, and could not be spun otherwise, seems like a statistical impossibility. I know that she’s an adult and that I don’t understand the attraction, or scientology, or their pre-nup (re: Suri), but she always seems so sad. There is more to life than being “Mrs. Tom Cruise”. Just my opinion. I would not want to be her.

  47. citysuede says:

    wow, katie – keep shaving off parts of your nose and you will start to look like latoya jackson!

  48. Poopie says:

    @original kate : SCI FI CHANNEL !! GOOD ONE !

    Tomkat: stop with the WEIRD hand holding please ! we don’t believe either of you !!

    and tiny tom actually uses the term : ‘HIS public?’ how totally joan crawford of him
