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. It can’t be more busy than Jessica Alba’s. Alba is in NYC this week and turning Manhattan into her own personal runway. Full Story

It’s cheating day today, apparently. Which reminds me I received a really great message last week; I’ll post it at the end of this article. Over the last week or so, since Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have been more and more apparently MORE, stories about a despondent Demi Moore have been circulating. Full Story

Check out Katie Holmes with her hair up in this purple dress for C Magazine. First of all, that’s an updo from 2002. But also... Total Joey Potter styles, right? Is that what Holmes & Yang, her clothing line, is for? Joey Potter? The C Magazine shoot happened a week before Katie blindsided Tom Cruise with her divorce filing. Full Story

But first... Even though Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna won’t admit it openly, the two broke up a while ago. There were reports however that G was at MDNA in Hyde Park the other night. But no pictures. And she was confirmed to be at Pump in Chicago with Chris Martin just the day before. So. Full Story

This is Johnny Depp at Nice airport today with his children Lily-Rose and Jack. Apparently they’re on holiday in the South of France. Given that he’s packing some beer along with them, perhaps they’re heading out on the boat? The boat is called Vajoliroja - Vanessa, Johnny, Lily-Rose, Jack. Full Story

Here’s the new PEOPLE cover. As you can see, they picked a shot of his “sad eyes”. His world is “shattered”. It’s his “private pain”. That’s what we, the women, respond to isn’t it? Tom Cruise the victim? He is hurting. He needs a hug. That may have been his only play but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad one. Full Story

Have I mentioned how obsessed I am with Anne Hathaway’s hair? I have, I know. And it won’t stop. Here’s Anne, the Catwoman you all insist on hating, at the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises last night in New York. And that is a great dress on her. Not on everyone, but definitely on her. Full Story

Bountiful is a small town in British Columbia, Canada. Of polygamists. I mean, it’s FAMOUS for the polygamy. Anyway, Duana made this brilliant observation yesterday about Katie Holmes’s hair: “I am seriously one to talk, but that long, never-tended hair on both of them feels kind of sister-wife in and of itself. Full Story

Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise continue to get papped incessantly in New York. They went to a pet store the other day. Suri wanted a puppy. Katie said no. Suri pouted. She ended up wailing on her way out. Good decision on Katie's part. Pet stores support puppy mills. Anyway, through their divorce drama, it's been reported that it was Tom Cruise who was the indulgent parent and Katie the one who set limits. Full Story

One day, if all goes according to plan, Katie Holmes’s plan that is, Suri Cruise will call herself a New Yorker. Katie intends for Suri to grow up in the city. I know she’s only 6 but do you see Suri Cruise as a New York City girl? That’s what she’s becoming. Katie and Suri hit up the zoo yesterday with grandma. Full Story
