    Doesn’t sound that great, doubt I’ll go see it. Unless the commercials look good, then maybe I’ll go. I just think it would be a little boring.

    Amelia Earhart was 39 when she disappeared, supposedly in a plane crash. They never found her. Foster is 45. Hmmm, that could work.

    This is an interesting story. Which will be played by one of todays top actors.
    I’m interested Sean when you say “supposedly in a plane crash”.
    What are some of the conspiracy theories? I know there were a few around her dissapearance but what have you heard?

    Her plane disappeared and was assumed to have crashed. It, along with her, were never found. There were rumors that it was shot down or that it successfully landed but she was then held captive. Another unsolved mystery.

    maybe we should ask tom cruise? perhaps one of the earliest spaceships for the scientologists intercepted her plane in flight!?

    We should also ask Tom Cruise about the ‘Britney Spears Saga’…..I mean, seeing as he admittedly said that he knows all about psychiatry!!! LMAO!

  8. tributegirl • February 11, 2008 @ 9:41 AM

    Yes, Tom would know exactly what happened! Maybe he’s waiting for Mary Kate to give him permission to tell us!

    he didn’t say he knew all about psychiatry, he said that it was pretty much nonsense. as though he has the right to say anything is nonsense when he belongs to one of the weirdest cults on the planet.

  10. Nancy • February 11, 2008 @ 6:33 PM

    Anonymous…..I agree about Tom’s whacko cult but, yes, he did say to the interviewer of the entertainment show that he knows all about psychiatry and that the interviewer knew nothing about it. It was about Brooke Shields and her post-partum depression.

    Wasn’t that when he was on Oprah? I can’t stand him, I refuse to watch anything with him in it anymore.

  12. tributegirl • February 11, 2008 @ 8:18 PM

    You’re right about Nicole! He was on Oprah though, wasn’t he? I remember something about him jumping on her couch going on and on about Katie. He’s such a freak! I just can’t stand him! She must be half loopey too for marrying him.

  13. Nancy • February 11, 2008 @ 8:19 PM

    No, it wasn’t Oprah, the interviewer was a guy….I think it was Entertainment Tonight or one of those types. I never could stand him. Nicole Kidman sure lucked out when she got rid of him!!

  14. tributegirl • February 11, 2008 @ 8:19 PM

    How did that happen? Nancy’s post was on before my last one, but mine is above hers.

  15. Sean Mulcahy • February 12, 2008 @ 8:33 AM

    This is off topic but I remember this very funny message posted on a website making fun of Cruise :

    “Oprah breaks into Tom Cruise’s house and jumps on his couch”. “See how you like it”, says Oprah.

    oprah thought tom was the cat’s meow, then he started bouncing around on her couch.

    oprah picked some book for her club, had the author on her show, then we found out he was a fraud.

    now oprah is putting her support and face out there pushing barack obama for president?

    just food for thought.

  17. tributegirl • February 13, 2008 @ 9:33 PM

    Yup, gotta love Oprah. Not. I can’t stand her anymore. And I don’t like Obama either, don’t like Clinton either, but I like her better than Obama. He creeps me out more than she does.

    that’s because he’s arrogant. he’s a pulpit politician. you know the type, the guy who can get the crowd in a frenzy with all his hallelujahs but lacks the substance to go with the style.

    anybody can say we’re going to do this and that but bill clinton had it right when he said “give me a break!” the president is just a figurehead, congress and the senate are the powerhouses and we’ve all seen how they can kill any proposed legislation.

    no matter who gets in though,they sure are going to have to clean up the mess create by that dolt bush.
