Dog and Pony Show

Did you see the farce on Oprah today? Wow, was she a willing participant in that choreagraphed fairy tale. I don't know what went down with Cruise leaving PMK, but that sister/publicist of his is not doing him any favors copying Pat's moves. It's like watching a "best of" clip show, down to modest Katie mouthing "I love you." WOWIE. Seriously, is middle America buying this? He's a smart, talented guy, but I feel like he thinks we're soooo stupid. Give us a little credit, Tom.

Omigawd, NP, did you see defamer.com's entry on TC? Too funny:

And read this one on two H'wood screenwriters, too:

Oooh yeah. I'm home. Unavoidably chained to my freakin' computer and just praying for a reason to stop writing...

Is anyone wanting to bet on the Tom/Katie kiss on that show becoming the new MJ/Lisa Marie moment on VH1 clip shows?...

Kid Sis said...

Ohhhh....ohhhh, totally. It wasn't AS painfully awkward, but still horrible considering all of TC's past PR.

Eeeew... and did you see that KH had the lip cooties after the first press run to prove their "love" was real?

Ick! Double ick!

"It must be real, she has herpes?"

That's a new PR low. Besides, since when has herpes been isolated to the straight community?

Anonymous said...

Yeah, it's not a straight thing. It just shows the marks of his loooooove....

...so the bigger question is how TC got genital herpes on his lips.

And if we want real PR proof TC has been there and done that? Let's see KH's blackberry images of her cooter (a la Paris Hilton)!

(Okay. I double-dog-dare ya to outgross me on that one!)

You DOUBT my gross out capabilities? Blasphemer! I am woman, hear me grotesquely gossip!

Okay, let's see...well, if they were really clever, they'd leak a home video of John and Tom swordfighting with Katie...cuz straight men love having group sex with their fraternity brothers! Nothing's straighter than that!

NN, Are you avoiding writing your thesis? I'm avoiding writing my script. Actually, I've gotten three pages done. And waaaay too many blogger comments and emails answered.

Uh, yeah. I'm avoiding the writing. And anyway cooter talk is way more interesting than my "work." But I did manage to get some stuff done today -- a couple of good pages, single-spaced -- in between gossiping and kvetching and grossing your readers out.

I swear 2 gawd, if TC and KH come out with a sex video we're going to have a very good laugh!

Ironic considering your paper topic...

I don't know if the home movie would be funny. I found Eyes Wide Shut's sex scenes pretty depressing.
