Katie Holmes was photographed in New York yesterday. Tom Cruise took Suri to Disney World so she's on her own in the city.  She looks like a college student, non? It's yet another side of the new single Katie. She takes cabs. Her hair is long and often unbrushed. She's no longer expected to be groomed in the likeness of a Mrs Cruise. Full Story

Click here if you missed my article last week about Kristen Stewart’s embarrassingly beggy public apology last week. As noted then, I think it was a mistake. A totally unnecessary mistake. And it ended up being an invitation to ask more questions, question more details, demand more information, a tacit agreement that her private life is fair game. Full Story

Whatever, Katie Holmes. Go on with your single freedom, taking cabs all over the place like you’re in gen pop now, and not combing your hair because life in New York as Courage Mom, superhero, is simply too busy.
