Tom Cruise has “emotionally wiped” Katie from his mind, is now cruising for da ladies

Tom Cruise

It’s only been a few months since Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, and their split was finalized about a week ago, which led to claims that Tom was drastically losing weight on the heartbreak diet. But happy, in-charge Tom is already back — did he ever really leave? Probably not. Tom is looking towards the future where he’ll enjoy a rehabilitated public image, and he thinks finding the correct woman will be a huge step in that direction. In fact, In Touch says that Tom has already erased Katie from his mind other than the fact the must deal with her because of Suri. I believe that Tom could easily do that since I think their split resulted in more of a crushed-ego effect for him than a loss of love.

The question remains, however, who is interested in Tom? The Frisky has an amusing article about how Tom should hire” his next wife after a very careful selection process, and they come up with the likes of Amber Heard (as the requisite up-and-comer) and Paz de la Huerta (who would be suitable as a Narconon spokesperson). But both Amber (with her bisexual ways) and Paz (for everything) are much too controversial. And all of the other up-and-coming female actresses are either taken or way too smart to jump into bed with Scientology. Fox News spoke to an “expert” that thinks Tom should stop dating celebrities, but Tom’s ego would never let him do that. So who is left? As Kaiser suggested, Jennifer Love Hewitt would totally go there if Tom went and picked up one of her favorite rings from Tiffany’s. I also think someone like Rose McGowan (she works steadily and hasn’t been scandalous in several years) would be an option, but she grew up in a cult and may be wary of CO$.

The issue (beyond the basic Scientology concern) is that Tom is clearly unable to form real relationships with people beyond displaying an over-the-top enthusiasm. All human feelings have been audited out of him, and he bloody loves it but must inherently want to fill the void. That’s part of why he’s so obsessed with working all the time — it’s the only opportunity he has to put on a different mask and sort of act like a person. Here’s a story from this week’s In Touch about how Tom is seeking to fill the void by making goo-goo eyes at randoms:

Tom Cruise

“He’s never dated a non-actress,” an insider notes. “I see him with someone new on the scene.”

The ink on his divorce decree is barely dry. So a patron at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant was surprised to see Tom Cruise aggressively checking out a brunette during a recent business dinner. “She was gorgeous,” the eyewitness tells In Touch, “and Tom definitely noticed. When she walked by, he gave her a megawatt smile and maintained intense eye contact.” Even after the woman rejoined her party, “He seemed pretty distracted!”

Eyeing other women already? That’s a lightning-quick turnaround from Tom’s alleged heartbreak after Katie Holmes, 33, filed for divorce, but it fits his pattern: “When a relationship is over, he just emotionally wipes the woman out,” a source says. “If it weren’t for Suri, the’d never think about Katie again.”

Accordng to Tom’s attorney, “The only relationships Tom is focused on now are with his children. He’s concentrating on his family and his work.” But in fact, the 50-year-old is back on the market. “He’s already looking for the next Mrs. Cruise,” says another source. “He’s not ready to date in public, but he’s asked friends to set him up with girls.”

Scientology expert Rick Ross speculates that Tom might have learned his lesson about dating outside the church. “He split with Katie and Nicole Kidman because of Scientology,” Ross notes. “This time, he’ll likely pick someone with deep roots in the organization. Tom will have access to a lot of information about any girl that catches his eye.”

And Tom, who cares very much what the public thinks of him and is aware he has an image problem, undoubtedly hopes that a suitable red carpet partner will catch his eye soon. “He has about three months before he has to promote his next movie,” says an insider. “I’d be very surprised if he doesn’t have a new woman in his life by then.”

[From In Touch, print edition, September 20, 2012]

Ladies (and gents), what would you do if you spied Tom Cruise flashing his pearly whites at you at a restaurant? I’d order a very stiff cocktail and try not to laugh. Seriously though, I think Tom should go for a fellow Scientologist too and stop trying to recruit Catholic girls for his cause. There’s always the rumor that he’ll start dating Yolanda Pecoraro again, whom he casually dated immediately before starting up with Katie.

There’s also a story in this week’s Enquirer about how Katie’s been furiously shopping up a storm lately and has hit up Barney’s in a major way. Supposedly, she’s spent $15,000 on shoes (Louboutins) and also bought a bunch of cocktail dresses and power suits because “she wants to show the world who she really is – a beautiful, confident and talented woman balancing single motherhood and a thriving career.” The Mail, which seems to have forgotten their recent attack on the fug booties, celebrates this shopping spree by showing a photo of Katie and Suri at Chelsea Piers on Tuesday. Naturally, Katie is wearing the maligned pair of booties, which the article describes as “stylish heeled boots.” Ooops. Interestingly enough, the Enquirer also writes that Katie has recently spent $10,000 on lingerie — although I don’t see her jumping into a relationship anytime soon. I’d love to speculate on what possible candidates Katie may have in mind, but I’m drawing a blank on anyone in the entertainment business. Katie just keeps to herself so much, and it’s hard to know who her “type” is these days. I think she’d actually enjoy going for a successful businessman who is off the radar.

This week’s Star has a rather obnoxious cover story that compares the lives of Suri and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt. Their “expert” seems to believe that both young girls will need serious therapy in adulthood because both sets of parents are too permissive. As in, Brad and Angelina do nothing to rein in Shiloh’s love of dead bugs and her tomboy tendencies. As for Suri, the article blames Katie’s alleged ongoing permissive attitude towards Suri’s love for candy and says that Suri has her very own credit card just for that purpose. In addition, the story states that “Katie has gone out of her way to indulge Suri’s fantasies,” and that means Katie has “spent money on high-end furniture and had an interior designer decorate a room just for Suri’s imaginary friends” in their new apartment. Eh, I’m not buying it. This sort of feels like a plant from Tom’s team as sort of a “Hey! I’m not the only one guilty of spoiling!” It just doesn’t sound like Katie, who is steadfastly teaching Suri how to enjoy civilian pleasures, you know? Besides, I imagine that the third bedroom is a guest room, not a “don’t sleep on top of my imaginary friends” room.

I want to see Katie’s new clothes from that shopping spree. Do you think she’ll pull off anything like this?

      It probably was no sweat for him to wipe his hard drive.

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        COS wiped it for him. Exactly. Her engram has been erased.

        What would I do if Tom tried to pick on me? Well, I’m 5’9″ and wear massive heels so my now 6’3″ self would just look way down…and laugh.

  2. Caitlinsmommy says:

    I cannot imagine how anyone would want to be the next future ex-mrs. Tom cruise.

  3. Mia 4S says:

    LOL…cannot comment…laughing too hard…cracked rib.

    Oh Tommy go the devoted single father route for awhile will you? (although that may require more downtime away from set than you are willing to give) Anything else is going to look PAINFULLY obvious.

    When Twilight is kaput in a few months, there are a few second tier actresses from that who might be willing to make a deal.

    • Happymom says:

      Yes, how about that Ashley Green chick who keeps trying to promote herself to no avail? Shopping, private jets, the occasional movie appearance-just don’t get yourself knocked up and it’s all fun. Other than that pesky e-meter and creepy cult members who follow you around and live in your home(s) . . .

      • Bedhead says:

        Good call. Ashley would be perfect!

      • Genevieve says:

        That’s actually a pretty decent candidate, Happymom…

        However, even though Ashley is a bit full of herself lately, I wouldn’t wish that fate on a gerbil. We have to think of someone REALLY annoying and deserving of such a hellish fate.

        I know, I know! How about LeAnn when Eddie divorces her?! 🙂

        *jumps up and down with glee*

      • Amelia says:

        Ashley is actually a pretty good shout. Bugger.
        I went for Swifty, but as we all know she’s off man(boy?)eating and social climbing.

    • mia girl says:

      Yes! Ashely Greene.

      • Janet says:

        No. KStew.

      • Polk8dot says:

        And Ashley is actually a very pretty girl. She’s also soooo hell bent on making herself into a STAR she’d likely agree to anything to do with Tommy’s level of fame.
        BTW, I just checked out the link to the Yolanda picture. Whoever called her a ‘latin beauty’ seriously needs to have their eyes examined.
        Compared to Penelope Cruz or Katie, she is lower than a third-tier, I’d say. No way he’d get settled with someone like her. He is shooting for genuine beauty that can be taught class, elegance and wordliness, and blossom under the makeover his ample resources will guarantee her.
        I’m still holding out hope for Jennifer Love Hewitt. The insanity resultant from the merging of their two particular brands of crazy would be f-ing SPECTACULAR, man.

    Tom Cruise has “emotionally wiped” Katie from his mind,

    Of course he did. With all those fancy, effective Sciento-techniques, I bet.

    is now cruising for da ladies


    • Brown says:

      I know, right?? Katie isn’t the only thing that’s been wiped from Tom’s mind. I’d imagine it’s probably a prettttttty empty place by now….

    • Mr.Smurf says:

      I was just about to say that! Now Cruise can recruit women by telling them Xenu will make them forget about their past partners. Xenu forever!

      • CF98 says:

        Maybe that’s how someone as seemingly level headed as Katie got caught up with Tom maybe she wanted to forget about a past love and Tom told her Scientology could help her get over him once and for all. And unbeknownst to her she was pregnant with past love’s child and didn’t realize it at the time. By then she was already in.

  5. RocketMerry says:

    I’d like Tom to draw me a picture of what those “ladies” of his should look like.
    That should be informative.

  6. Miss S Ippi says:

    Ladies?? Trannies is more like it. I’m sure Katie is relieved.

  7. Cletus says:

    i would totally like to put my name in the hat for the future ex mrs cruise. he’s tried out a couple catholics, now it’s time to get on board the MITZVAH TRAIN! Come on, tommy. let me be your next p.r. nightmare. at least i’ll have people feeling sorry for you, because i vow to be a hot mess from the moment we meet until i recieve the restraining order. no matter how crazy you get, i will match you, and then top you. go for it tommy. enough with this f–king around. let’s get it on.

    • Genevieve says:

      “Cruising for da ladies”?


      If you insert the word “dudes” for the word “ladies”, I would TOTALLY buy that.

      Cruise is the last of the Closet Rump-Rangers. Just about everyone else has had the decency to come out, lol.

    • Brown says:

      HAHAHA I was just thinking the same thing… sign me up!! 5 years?? People spend longer time in prison. It would be the best paying job I ever had. Plus it’s not like I would be required to sleep with him, we all know TommyGirl doesn’t want what I’ve got.

    • Elizabeth says:

      You are priceless! Mitzvah train, from the time you meet right up to the restraining order?! Thanks for making me smile.

    • Eleonor says:

      Ahaha LOL!! It surely would be a nice change.

    • Debz says:


  8. DEB says:

    A few months? It’s barely been two months … and In-Touch is about as credible as Octo-Mom. As in, NOT. I call BS on this story. Although good luck with finding the next Mrs. Cruise if you believe in aliens infecting the human body. Of course his next “wife” will HAVE to be a Scienologist. *gags*

  9. Anne de Vries says:

    I’m just laughing at his PR team.

    “Got to make him look like he’s heartbroken, people will feel sorry for him and hate Katie!”

    “Shit, I looked at the blogs and this isn’t working, right okay, he’s moving on!”

    This is his MO though – he completely wiped Nicole Kidman the moment she was dumped, too. So this sounds real.

    What would I do if he did his terrifying I-want-to-eat-your-eyeballs grin at me? Back away hurriedly. Or smile back sweetly and ask how it’s going with those OT8 superpowers. Or maybe introduce myself as Anonymous to see if I could freak him out…

  10. tru tru says:

    awww shucks, Tommy boy is back on the prowl!!! LOL

    when I was very young, me and my grandmother went to a bad part of town to get takeout deep fried shrimp and cole slaw.

    The pimp Bishop Don Magic Juan came in in all green w/a diamond studded cane and all I remember my granny saying was “don’t look in his eyes!” I did not know what a pimp was, I peeked and he was glaring at me.

    I kept asking “why can’t I look in his eyes?” and she told me he sold souls. I never once looked in his eyes.

    the same would apply to Tommy Boy!!

    he’s a soul eater, no thanks.
    I would stifle a chuckle though and stare at his lil lifts instead.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Damn, I hope the shrimp and slaw were good! It sounds like you had a traumatic childhood experience. Still, if the shrimp was good …… hmmmmmmm ……

  11. deborah says:

    who does he think he’s fooling with these sham marriages??? he is as light in his lifted loafers as they come! It’s so irritating to me to see such a mockery made of marraige for the sake of careers.

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      has anyone seen how crazy famous he still is in Japan? We’re talking Beatlemania. Tomcrumainia. I bet he high-tails it over there to find his future love.

  12. Green_Eyes says:

    After being down sick all week, I really needed this good laugh!! Out cruising for Da Ladies. Ha! Good one!!

  13. Paloma says:

    He is going to have to go after the young ones whose minds are still pliable and will discount coS.

  14. Chatcat says:

    “has emotionally wiped Katie from his mind” … as only an emotional midget could do.

  15. Talie says:

    Erika Christensen or Elisabeth Moss seem likely.

    • Elizabeth says:

      I keep thinking these two are perfect. Both CO$, both actors already wise to Hollywood. So both will not think his scientology ways are wacky (big Tommmy +++ IMO), they want the career/ profile boost he can give and they know how to walk a red carpet. Its SOOOOOO obvious.

  16. tru tru says:

    maybe he can take Stacey off of Clooney’s hands, at least she’d get her “marriage”


  17. CatJ says:

    Not Stacey, she is way to tall for Tom. He would need to borrow Lady GAGA’s stilt shoes to even get close to Stacey’s chin!!!

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      Or Courtney Stodden’s! Get her out of those shoes, dear lord! Okay, I’m finally losing it….

    • Anne de Vries says:

      she’s also pretty kickass (didn’t she used to be a wrestler?) and Tom definitely needs to feel like the big strong man in his relationships.

    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

      Awesome comment thanks for the chuckle :):):)

  18. barb says:

    There was another special on Scientology last night….it came out in 2011, and it had all the usual high profiles in it. Marty Rathburn etc…but this time they interviewed a few celebrities who ‘escaped’ from the cult…one of them was a guy I used to really like, and one was an ex soap opera star that i recognized immediately. Of course am blanking on their names now, but they all said the same thing. Thinking for yourself is not allowed, that its a dangerous cult, and that they are told to not read any media about scientology at all….which is why so many of them have no clue as to how horrible it really is. They haven’t read any of the truths about it, so they have no perspective at all, and nothing to compare it to. Its sort of like living in North Korea…you know it sucks, but you don’t know how other people are really living. So sad.

  19. Ojulia says:

    Ah. The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Scientiologist Mind.


    Sorry to cut this short, but I have to get back to being a Suppressive Person now.

  20. Lauren says:

    Tommy will not have any problem obtaining-hiring another wife-bot. How about June? His Scientology vodoo powers can fix Junie`s gnat infested toe! At least June is hilarious–Katie is a cold, phoney robot. I am not a scientologist, but Tom needs to STOP getting married. 3 failed marriages is bloody awful.

  21. Aubra says:

    Some young model type…shoot, Scarlett johansen is probably wishing she didn’t turn down the contract! LMAO

  22. LeslieM says:

    I don’t think Tom Cruise is looking for girls. For years I didn’t believe the gay rumors. I love him,
    but he’s into a weird religion, on his 3rd marriage and his first wife says he wanted to be a priest. What ever he’s tastes may be, I hope he keeps making movies.

  23. A. says:

    I don’t care about Tom, I wanna see who Katie is going to date next. Hope she goes for someone closer to her age though.. And I too wanna see the clothes she bought! I see the potential.
    As for Tom, I think he’s going to hook up with some MUCH younger chick.

  24. Nic says:

    Suri seems to be better behaved and much better dressed since the divorce so I am assuming that Katie has taken back the reins from Tom and Suri. And why doesn’t Tom hook up with that Elizabeth Moss from mad Men – isnt she a Scientologist, young, an actress, not too tall and famous. Perfect!

  25. JC says:

    I dont believe he is capable of knowing what real love is. He has been in control of all the women in his life since a teen ager and its all about him! Thank God Suri has been rescued from “Lyin-tology” but Tom’s sisters are just as dangerous as he is wanting to still indoctrinate her. I cant believe his mother fell for that occultic garbage!

    • Jayna says:

      I don’t think he was in control of Nicole. She said last year in an interview that her marriage with Tom was lovely and many great memories but that looking back it ran its course. From reading interviews by Scientologists it is clear due to Nicole’s influence he was not involved much with Scientology during the marriage and actually out of Scientology for years, just not publicized. That’s not a woman controlled. That’s a woman who had a clear influence on her husband. Though, she did say being married to the biggest movie star in the world was overwhelming at times. You feel invisible. She said that’s why they really led a private life and what helped the relationship. Her career was going strong during the marriage as she began acting more when the kids were a little older. The UK even had a tape on them when they tapped their phones, while working on that Eyes Wide Shut movie, where they were arguing about the long day they both had and who was taking care of the kids more. Not a woman under his thumb. It was an argument between a normal married couple both working.

      He probably wasn’t that bad with Penelope in the beginning as he was just being pulled back into the fold. I’m sure as he went deeper and deeper into Scientology during their relationship it is what doomed it and Penelope is no fool for such insanity as that cult. But she still maintained a friendship with him after they broke up and even met Katie after he fell in love.

      Katie got the crazy Tom and embraced it right from the beginning. The minute Tom put a handler on me in the very beginning of a relationship, I would have run for the hills. It took longer for her to get past her adoration of him.

      He needs to marry a Scientologist next, because he seems too far gone and refuses to see how evil Miscaviage is.

  26. eric says:

    He should marry a model they make excellent beards, look at Jason Statham, he’s doing just fine with his beard.

  27. Ann says:

    I totally think he’s gay.

  28. iheartjacksparrow says:

    “Suri has her very own credit card just for that purpose.” That’s bogus. No credit card company would issue a a card to Suri because minors cannot legally enter into contracts.

  29. Greta says:

    Don’t see why this is news? It only takes a second to erase a file stored on a hard drive. Probably he does it remotely like my grandad’s (RIP) pacemaker. Everything can be done remotely these days.

  30. Kosmos says:

    Of course he’s looking again, not surprised at all, but he indeed will have to find someone with Scientology roots. So glad Katie is out of his control for good. However, he can date people for long periods who are not Scientology-bound, as he did with Penelope Cruz and others, but in the end they did not marry. I would not either.

  31. crazydaisy says:

    Hate me for saying this, but I wouldn’t mind emotionally wiping out my ex from my brain. It’s been months since he dumped me (by voicemail-ouch!) for another woman, but it still hurts. Not planning on joining Co$ anytime soon (as in nev-er), but they might have a useful technique or two. Advice, anyone?

    • Jayna says:

      Sorry to say, if you loved him, short of waiting at a minimum a year or two for the feelings and/or pain to fade, the only much earlier way is to fall for someone else and have the endorphins of new sex, new man in your brain instead.

    • gg says:

      I know how you feel. Exercise it out, and then go get a fabulous outfit and new hairstyle. It’ll help a little.

    • crazydaisy says:

      Thanks, gals – good advice, especially the shop therapy part, lol. I guess I didn’t really know the guy (I would never date someone who was such a cold bastard!), so it wasn’t “him” I loved. In the end, this fact makes it easier to move on. It still sucks being burned/betrayed, but kyle, below, is right: Live and Learn. That’s what it’s all about. So I am. xo cd

  32. kyle says:

    Crazydaisy – you need to remember bad experiences in order to learn, otherwise you’ll keep making the same mistakes over and over again, like the brain-addled, brain-washed Tom Cruise.

  33. DIANE says:

    I’ve seen Cruise’s films and there are a handful where I thought he did a good acting job. These days I think he’s too busy with his full-time role as whatever it is he’s being groomed by the CO$ to be. I’m leaning towards some version of the antichrist, but I’m withholding judgment. His next ‘mate’ will have to be from within the Church. They won’t be taking yet another chance on somebody from the outside who’s not pre-brainwashed coming into their inner circle. If he gave up custody and just about everything else to Katie without so much as a fight, you’d better believe that she could seriously harm him and the CO$ and her silence is worth more than the kid to him. They’re probably scouring SeaOrg right now for some fetching 20-something virgin they can sacrifice.
