Katie, Nicole, and Rupert
I find it pretty rich that Rupert Murdoch, who could out-sinister Dick Cheney and Karl Rove, is attacking Scientology but whatever, that’s another conversation. Murdoch, who is very, very close with Nicole Kidman, which is why none of his tabloids ever sh-t on her, was tweeting this weekend about Scientology. Here’s what he wrote:
Scientology back in news. Very weird cult, but big, big money involved with Tom Cruise either number two or three in hiearchy.
Watch Katie Holmes and Scientology story develop. Something creepy, maybe even evil, about these people.
Maybe? Please. As IF he doesn’t know. As IF they didn’t try to recruit him at some point. But will this help Katie? Katie Holmes doesn’t need his help. She’s doing a great job helping herself.
Katie Holmes is the courageous mother who will fight to protect her child!
Katie Holmes staged a daring escape to save Suri from Scientology!
Katie Holmes is risking it all for the sake of her daughter!
Nicole Kidman has previously said that her children chose to stay with their father and therefore spending not too much time with their mother. Isabella and Connor have been raised as Scientologists. Theirs is the path that Katie doesn’t want for Suri. Katie is taking on the Church so that Suri doesn’t have their lives. Katie is doing what Nicole couldn’t...or wouldn’t?
In fairness, Tom Cruise was a lot more powerful when he and Nicole broke up. I’m sure she was extremely intimidated. But she was also protecting her own career. That’s one of the ways he could have threatened her. And she made her choices accordingly. What’s the answer though if you were to ask - did Nicole Kidman do EVERYTHING, sacrifice ANYTHING, for the wellbeing of her children?
The Katie Holmes-Tom Cruise split has dominated discussion the last 4 days. Those conversations have included Nicole and her kids and Tom Cruise’s custody of those two kids - which is what Katie’s trying to prevent. Of course the comparisons are inevitable. And because Katie’s such a f-ckin’ baller now, with nothing to lose, really, and not even a career because, let’s face it, she’s not winning an Oscar in 2 years the way Nicole did, in those comparisons, Nicole comes out wanting. To some it looks like Katie’s throwing down against Xenu but Nicole, Nicole she just walked away...
So why is Rupert Murdoch getting all up in Katie’s business? Well, the old bitch loves the attention, obviously, but he’s also doing it for his friend. To remind us that his friend, the poor frail Nicole Kidman, faced an evil foe, a seemingly insurmountable one, and therefore should not be blamed for not standing up to it...
