Katie Holmes is Suri’s best friend, is scared of losing her newfound freedom to a man

Katie Holmes

Here are some photos of Katie Holmes last week at a photobooth event at Godiva Boutique where she promoted a sweepstakes and gushed over her love of Valentine’s Day. While this might seem strange considering her recent divorce from tiny Tom Cruise, I sort of get it. Like Katie, I harbor a fondness for cupcakes and chocolate and also love the color red, so I don’t mind VDay even though coupley stuff makes me want to hurl. Even when I’m in a relationship, I don’t like mushy stuff like that. So I can identify with Katie being excited about the holiday for reasons other than the obvious.

While Katie was at this Godiva event, she talked about her family traditions that were started by her mother, who specialized in making red pancakes during the month of February. She also says that she and Suri are fond of making their own flower arrangements (not suprising at all), and Katie gushed over the different types of truffles at Godiva: “There’s a truffle for every mood you’re in. So if you’re not really feeling chocolate, you could do the birthday cake truffle the pink one I really like that one. But then if you really just need a little hunk, there’s the praline brownie, which was amazing. And the cookie dough, which I also really love.” Does anyone else think that Katie should open her own truffle and cupcake shop?

In other Katie-related news, we’ve already heard that she’s having fun with male friends on platonic dates. Now that it’s been over seven months since she filed for divorce from Tom, Katie reportedly feels like she wants to date again, but she’s super worried about losing her newfound independence. Can you blame her for her concern?

Katie Holmes is feeling ready to cautiously dip her toe back into the dating pool again after seven months of living the single life, but she’s vowing to take things slowly as she continues to recover from the emotional scars left by the end of her five year marriage to Tom Cruise, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

The Dawson’s Creek actress is worried about entering into a serious relationship with a new man, because she fears it would spell the end to her newly discovered freedom.

As we previously reported, a source told Radar that the mom-of-one was spurred on to divorce her high-profile hubby after becoming sick of his “controlling ways” and growing more and more irritated by Tom’s desire to control their relationship, their daughter’s upbringing and Katie’s every move — something she has vowed never to be subjected to again.

“Katie’s in a dilemma, because she wants to date but is concerned where it could lead to from there,” a family insider tells Radar. “She’s worried that if she commits herself fully to another man, she will have to give up the freedom she’s enjoying so much at the moment. As a single woman, she has no one controlling her nowadays, telling her what to do or who to see and she absolutely loves it!

“However, at the same time, she also misses being with someone special to share experiences with and she doesn’t want to be alone for the rest of her life. Katie’s got Suri for the time being, and she is her best friend, but she does eventually want to find a man she can be that close with as well. She’s just a little nervous and cautious about relationships still right now,” the insider reveals.

We’ve already heard that Katie has been flourishing in her new life and that she hasn’t been ready to date until now, but she definitely doesn’t want to date an old “geezer” like Tom again. Certainly, being married to Tom for six years (and being with him for at least a year prior to marriage) has taken a toll on Katie’s psyche, and I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if she had a mild form of PTSD since she was so tightly controlled (by both Tom and Scientology) during the entirety of their relationship. No wonder she’s so hesitant to jump back into the dating pool again.

These are photos of Katie out an about in New York City over the past week or so. Her hair looks fantastic.

    Her life coach should explain her that a true relationship is not something which require burn phones to get out, and crazy people surrounding you, spying you al the time. You can be indipendent, and having a life and fun without brainwashing.

  2. RocketMerry says:

    I get it, poor thing. After years of being controlled by a possessive psycotic bastard, any woman would want to enjoy life for a while without getting serious with another man, especially if a kid is involved.

    Heck, I’m still not over the idiotic mind games and manipulations of a creepy, creepy guy, and did not even date him for two months!!

  3. Ranunculus says:

    Sure she is her best friend, she is pap friendly and she keeps her in the news!

  4. lucy2 says:

    She should keep things casual and just have fun for a while.

    • pamspam says:

      Yep. I think we’re so used to seeing celebs end a marriage and then immediately get coupled up, that we forget taking a little time is the normal and healthy thing to do. I think it’s kind of refreshing to see her taking her time and not feeling compelled to be with a guy. Good for her.

  5. emmie_a says:

    Katie has great taste in chocolate – and great taste in outerwear… I love all her coats!

  6. judyjudy says:

    Her hair looks great these days.

  7. Cece says:

    I’m a little tired of the PR pity game with Katie. She knowingly entered into this relationship with Tom and brought a kid into the picture. I don’t see her as a victim; I wouldn’t be surprised if being able to take that kid was part of the contract. She promoted her fake marriage with all sorts of gushing and reports of how great, awesome and normal her marriage was. Just not buying that she’s the poor little victim.

  8. Nucking Futs says:

    I know that feeling very well, especially after being married to an SOB control freak. Post divorce you just can’t believe that wonderful feeling of freedom and the last thing you want is give it up again. It sure makes you weary of marriage…been there done that.

  9. s says:

    I actually think her hair looks dirty in these pictures.

  10. Sheeeeeesh says:

    That poor kid. She needs some real friends her own age, not Banana Boobs.

  11. PS says:

    If Katie doesn’t want to lose her “independence”, maybe she should consider against signing a contract with her next man.

    I’m sorry but I have no sympathy for her. She’s not a victim in my book. She can boo hoo her way to the bank with her $35k a month in child support.

    Suri needs friends her own age. It’s not normal for your 6 year old child to be your best friend.

  12. Cecada says:

    Something else to consider is that anybody she gets serious with will be put under COS’s microscope immediately. Anything in any prospective mate’s past or present that would call into question Suri’s environment (valid or not) would just open the door for the littlest giant to try and snatch her away, because you gotta know that’s TC’s ultimate plan: take the child, brain wash her against, and isolate her from, her mother. He’s done it before…

  13. KellyinSeattle says:

    A parent isn’t supposed to be “friends” with their kids; a good relationship, sure, but being friends with your kids usually isn’t a good idea; Katie should take some time IMO…better than bouncing around from guy to guy, and better for Suri, too.

  14. JPC says:

    I love how Katie is smiling in every picture. I bet she feels so relieved to be away from that crazy, piano-toothed midget.

  15. TrustMeOnThis says:

    If you want to see hoe $cientology treats kids, check out Jenna Miscavige Hill’s book Beyond Belief. She grew up in the sea org, on a ranch away from her parents. At seven years old she was put in charge of the other kids’ health – she was assigned to ask them if they had any sickness AND THEN ATTEMPT TO TREAT IT. Almost no one ever saw a doctor. (At 4, her knee was shattered in an accident and the $cilon doc told her parents to bring her in the next day, whereupon they put an ace bandage on it.)
    She also was given the billion year contract to sign at age seven. Her understanding of contracts came from the Little Mermaid.

    Suri would not have had this same treatment, but it shows you how important children and families are to those creeps.

    Radaronline? Really

    There’s nothing wrong with thinking your daughter is your BFF my mom was mine doesn’t mean that I didn’t have other friends either.

    And I don’t see where Katie is expecting pity its not as if she’s talked about her divorce to the press or anything. You know like Jennifer Aniston or even Nicole who still talks about Tom despite being married to someone else and having kids with him.

    Yet they rarely get the same amount of criticism go figure.

  17. Ashling says:

    How about not dating controling men or allowing your partner to control you? There are lots of men out there who aren’t.

  18. Laura says:

    I completely get that. I’ve been living alone for almost two years, since my last breakup (I went straight from living with my parents to living with that turd, and we were together for five years), and my boyfriend is moving in in a couple of months. Even though I love him, and I love it when he spends the night, I also feel a tug at ending my two years of being on my own.
