Katie Holmes & Emilio Vitolo: Clown pants, mama drama & Dairy Queen

Katie Holmes and Emilio Vitolo Jr clutch hands in NYC

Here are some photos of Katie Holmes & Emilio Vitolo – aka Kamilio, I’m calling it – out and about in New York on October 1. Even if I don’t like everything Katie wears, I usually appreciate that she’s got her own offbeat style, and that she isn’t actually a trend-follower. She tries to make different trends happen. So is she trying to make Clown Pants happen? I think so. How friggin’ awful are these pants? The CUFF, you guys.

Much like Afflarmas, Kamilio is a very particular kind of “pandemic couple” – their love flourished fast during the pandemic as they went on outdoor dates in late August and early September. The problem was that Emilio was engaged to Rachel Emmons at the start of his thing with Katie, and Emilio dumped Rachel via text when he was already going out with Katie. It was very messy. Now it sounds like Emilio’s mama wasn’t here for his fiancee drama.

Katie Holmes’ new relationship has not got off to an ideal start — it’s upset her boyfriend’s mom, we’re told. As has been previously reported, Holmes’ new squeeze, New York restaurateur Emilio Vitolo, dumped his fiancée after getting together with the actress. But Page Six hears that the dish around the stove of his family’s celebrity-favorite Soho restaurant, Emilio’s Ballato, is that his mom, Lourdes, is furious about the way the whole thing went down.

Vitolo reportedly ended his 18-month engagement to designer Rachel Emmons in early September — just hours before pictures of him canoodling with Holmes surfaced.

“[Lourdes] thinks she brought him up better than that,” said an insider. “She didn’t like how [Emilio] handled this at all.” But another source said it was clear things weren’t going well between Vitolo — who runs the sceney red sauce joint with his father, Emilio Sr. — and his ex-fiancée.

“He and his fiancée were taking it slow, and it wasn’t working out,” an insider familiar with the family told us. The saucy source added that Holmes is more of Vitolo’s type anyway. “He likes older women,” the source said. “He dated an older anchor at Fox, and others, so he has a history with older women.”

Emilio Jr. — or “Little Emilio” as he’s known by restaurant regulars — is 33, while Holmes is 41. Emmons is just 24. The insider said that an indie director who once auditioned Holmes told them, “Talking to her is like talking to somebody who works at Dairy Queen.” The source added that Little Emilio doesn’t have the most sophisticated interests either, “So it could work out. They’re not, like, discussing books, or art or anything.”

Reader, I laughed. I laughed so hard. Those burns were SO FUNNY. “Talking to her is like talking to somebody who works at Dairy Queen” is next-level, but “They’re not, like, discussing books, or art or anything” OH MY GOD. So we’re all clear now, the vibe is “they’re both dumb as rocks but I bet the sex is good.” Is that what it is? I think that might be it. It’s looking more and more like Rachel Emmons should be grateful for her escape.

    I like Katie’s pants.


    Okay, who threw that?

  2. Lady Baden-Baden says:

    Clown pants?!

    I LOVE them! When I saw the pics yesterday I even went as far as (unsuccessfully) attempting to Google the brand – I WANT THEM! Can anyone help?

    • Plus says:

      Aren’t you all tired of “trendy”? The “trend” I wanna see forevah is “know thyself’. Wear a style that suits YOU, albeit baby bangs, clown pants, skinny leggings…whatever…& go deep. Make it a thing FOREVAH so there’s no more buying crap & filling the landfill W disposable fast fashion.

  3. escondista says:

    i wish they were a different color and pattern and paired with a sleek dress shoe. I like the wide-leg silhouette after a decade of skinnies.

  4. Caitlin says:

    Katie pants are great. And Katie got into Columbia university and had a 4.0 GPA she’s not dumb. I don’t think she’s worldly though. But Katie is always posting about going to the museum and books she’s reading on Instagram. So not sure how trusted that source is.

    • Stacy Dresden says:

      Yeah I kind of take issue with a male director talking junk about a young female in that manner.

      • aang says:

        It is also terribly classist to assume that a fast food or retail worker is dumb. Maybe the girl making our Blizzard is funding a PhD. And even if their dream job is making twists with rainbow sprinkles it doesn’t mean they have never read a book.

    • Still_Sarah says:

      Re : Katie and being smart. When she was married to Tom Cruise, I read that an interviewer called her “unreflective”. So, smart but unreflective. I met a lot of people like that when I was in law school.

    • holly hobby says:

      Well considering most of the idiots working in the WH have a Harvard degree (Dickless Ken and Slutty Bratz are two of them), I don’t put much stock on ivy league degrees right now. Harvard should rescind all those diplomas at this point.

      • tcbc says:

        Those were legacy admits, though. It’s different if you can get in without having a relative for an alum or a daddy who can donate a building.

    • Mette says:

      Being booksmart and having common sense are two different things.

  5. Eenie Googles says:

    Those pants are cute.

  6. Jules says:

    Burn on the Dairy Queen comment, so much shade! The pants are cute.

    • Levans says:

      It is so SHADY, I love it. I don’t know what it means but you KNOW it is a burn.

      Beautiful gowns, gorgeous gowns

  7. Kaiser says:

    These pants are objectively terrible, omg you guys

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      100% agree. And I love plaid and wide leg pants. But these are not ones I would touch with a ten foot pole.

    • RoyalBlue says:

      I’m with you.

    • Kaye says:

      They are terrible. Plus they look like they don’t fit her figure very well. She doesn’t have much of a waistline or a butt, and they’re too loose at the top.

    • Jensies says:

      They’re heinous. If anything, they make it quite clear that he’s not in love with her. No way someone who loved her would go out with her wearing those.

  8. SJ Knows says:

    So, Katie has a new man, good for her.
    But, does she need to take him for a pap walk every.single.day?

    I guess, no harm no foul.

    • holly hobby says:

      It’s like walking the dog! He needs to take a crap every day. My apologies to decent dogs.

  9. Skyblue121 says:

    Love the pants!!

  10. Renee says:

    Why aren’t we all happy that Rachel, his ex, dodged a bullet with this guy? He did you a favor girl.

  11. Vote Science says:

    “Rachel wasn’t his type anyway.” What a cruel f*cking thing to say publicly about someone. These two are absolute cretins and I hope the ex-fiancée is doing okay.

    • Turtledove says:

      Right? Bad enough that her fiance was cheating with a celeb and left her for them. Now she gets to see pap stroll photos _daily_ in the tabloids. AND people want to say she wasn’t his type? She was his type enough to get engaged to.

      I like Katie Holmes, but I would love to know what she thinks of this situation. Who knows what impression he gave her vs what impression the ex-fiance was given.

  12. Sarah says:

    Even if things weren’t great in his previous relationship – if I have this right they met and got engaged super fast so may have got to know each other better and started to have second thoughts – anyone who dumps their SO by TEXT after they have met you is bad news.

  13. holly hobby says:

    I will forever question Katie’s sartorial and men choices. This jerk gives off Mr. Meann Rimes vibes. Good luck with that.

  14. MerryGirl says:

    What is it with Katie and her men….first it was Tom Cruise, then we had her undercover relationship with Jaimie Foxx hiding and dodging like thieves and now it’s a pap walk everyday with this guy who just broke off an engagement 2 days ago? Come on Katie, get it together.

  15. Toepietas says:

    Katie always has the weirdest entanglements.


  16. tcbc says:

    Eh, I don’t know. It’s pretty common for couples who are no longer together or barely marginal to continue to cohabit in NYC, because the rent is so expensive and moving is a pain in the butt. This has been doubly true this year, because of the moratorium on evictions.

    He was probably cheating, but I bet he and the ex were not as solid as she’s claiming.

    Also I don’t put stock in any man’s opinion on a woman’s intelligence, so that director can suck it.

    They’ll break up once the pandemic is over.

  17. Sass says:

    I cackled at the “yeah, they REAL DUMB” comments. 😂

  18. Skwinkee says:

    Isn’t it Benana??

    This is a hill I’m willing to be partially inconvenienced on!

  19. AmyB says:

    I know some people aren’t crazy about Katie Holmes, but I give this girl MANY passes for what she endured with Tom Cruise – and then how she basically *ghosted* his ass in epic form like a CIA agent, by leaving him with burner phones to protect her daughter from him and the clutches of Scientology! So, mad props from me to you Katie!! Then, she mostly likely had to sell her soul to the devil (by that, I mean Scientology) in the form of some iron clad NDA so she could have her daughter free and clear!!! She has never spoken of it, and probably never will. Again, that is a woman of incredible strength to me, so I give Katie some passes. But she does have questionable choices in men for sure. I would love to see her find someone who will love and treat her well, and who will love her daughter too. I just always have a soft spot for her. The pants? Eh. They aren’t horrible nor are they super cute to me. But the comments on this post about them are amusing as always! LMAO

    This site gives me life – especially as we are forced to watch Trump and his bullshit antics everyday! :)

    • Sass says:

      I agree, until very recently I was a huge Katie fan. I don’t like her moves as of late. Girl fix your mess!

  20. Vanessa says:

    She’s just a victim of circuspants.

  21. LilyfromLilooet says:

    You need to consider that Katie got a lot of media training with Tom and the fact is the press will take the most anodyne celeb comment and make a terrible story about it—I still remember Elizabeth McGovern making a thoughtful comment about which season of Downton Abbey she liked filming best and the Daily Fail turned it into screamy headline saying she was talking smack about the series which she did not—she ended up apologizing and I am sure that made her resolve to say nothing but the blandest moving forward. With Katie that whole business with Tom and how to manage media and etc I am sure has curbed professional interactions to hardcore normcore. Anything interesting, real, edgy can and will be used against her, and Katie also wants to work so sure talking to a director she’s going to keep it light and working world well adjusted. #WhenYourPantsHave toScreamBecauseYouCan’t

  22. serena says:

    Those quotes though, ouch (although very funny).

  23. Jamie says:

    How were he and his ex fiancee “taking it slow”? They were engaged….why would you propose to someone you were taking things slow with?

    That Dairy Queen burn was classic!

  24. MrsPanda says:

    Katie seems very pampered and entitled to me. She gets so much credit in escaping Tom’s clutches… but his proclivities & CO$ entrenchment were well known and she was no stranger to Hollywood and it’s games. She then had a CHILD with Tom (WTF). It was her Daddy who saved her (he’s an Attorney). She has a pie-eyed, cutesy manner and she seems to get a pass on all her fame-whore and shady ways. She was such a fame-whore with Tom and did these crazy PDA’s, she’s doing the same now with this guy. I remember when she first got with Tom and cozied up with his kids, and made a big deal about how they called her ”Mom” (insensitive to Nicole, who had publicly said she’s sad her kids just called her ”Nicole”). Now, parading around with this guy so blatantly (insensitive to his ex). Also Leah Remini said Katie reported her all the time when they were in the CO$ together, leading to Leah getting disciplined. I don’t know how I remember those little things, but she’s always struck me as insensitive and spoiled.
