Katie Holmes called Nicole Kidman for advice

Katie Holmes called her husband’s ex-wife, Nicole Kidman, for advice while she was plotting to divorce Tom Cruise. A source told Us Weekly: “They’ve spoken over the last few weeks. Nicole has been supportive, saying she’s been through it too and to hang in there.” The source added that Katie and Nicole have been friends since Katie married Tom in 2006, saying, “She has been a private friend not many people know about. Nicole offered her support and help.” The Los Angeles Times reported that Katie used disposable cell phones while making her divorce plans so that Tom and his staff wouldn’t know what she was up to, which was why Tom was shocked when she filed papers in court two weeks ago. A source told People.com that Tom “was a happy man and thought he had a happy life. He keeps asking, ‘What’s happening?'” Katie and Tom reached a divorce settlement on Monday giving Katie primary custody of their daughter, Suri, and the next day Tom was seen for the first time without his wedding ring on the set of Oblivion, in June Lake, California, where between scenes, a source said he “stayed to himself.”

    Sometimes a woman has to do what a woman has to do…in Katie’s case it was to protect her daughter from the claws of Scientology….she gave it a chance and found out what a dangerous and all encompassing cult it is and she very smartly engaged some loyal family and friends to aid her escape….That is a good mother!!

    Power & love to these two great ladies!

    So glad Katie was able to protect her daughter from Scientology indoctrination!!! From what I understand Nicole was unable to do that, not her fault though!

  7. Connie • July 12, 2012 @ 6:45 PM

    maybe Katie got in touch with Nicole to apologize for not encouraging Isabella and Connor to see more of Nicole because now she sees how Scientology can alienate kids from their parents and she didn’t want that to happen with Suri.

    Seriously who cares if I open another paper or turn on the tv and read about these two idiots, I am going to scream!

    Bitches ain’t shit cept hoes and tricks.

    I don’t blame her. When you’re with someone who is “abnormal” you desperately seek some clarity. Is it me or him??????

  11. Meow Meow • July 12, 2012 @ 9:56 PM

    p.s. Talk about obvious media manipulation… Nicole is a beautiful woman, yet Tribute posts what I would easily describe as being the most unattractive, insane-looking picture of Nicole that I have EVER seen.

    Cult..well sure. ALL RELIGIONS ARE CULTS. Some folks see theirs as special or the truth or superior or more holy but in the end they are primitive in their faith based narratives, their need to use no logic whatsoever to “prove” their doctrines and the clear irrationality and primate simplicity that they espose is laughable. I see little difference between any of them in their controlling and blinkered view of existence, cosmology and behaviour modification. In a word they all smell the same…ignorant rot.

    TOM….Here’s a piece of advice.

    If you’re planning on marrying again, learn from your past 3 failed marriages. That your persistent attempts to turn your wives and children to your bogus religion “Scientology” has made you end up in Divorce Court again and again.

    Stop looking for a pretty famous face and pretending that you’ve found the love of your life by jumping a Oprahs sofa. Instead either stay single or marry someone that believes this Scientology nonsense.

    Tom…here’s more obvious advice from an older woman

    1. They were all in the same industry, next time try
    someone from outside of your profession.

    2. They are all taller than you. It’s better to look
    someone in the eyes. Choose women around 5’4 and not someone hell bent on wearing those ridiculous high heels.

    3. Choose someone open-minded and curious enough
    to see that we are more than our physical bodies.
    We came from the stars and there we shall return.

    4. Dont TRY to control the next woman. Let her ask
    YOU about Scientology or the benefits of it.
    If something works you don’t have to push or
    convince, it just works in your life.

    5. You have a fantasic work ethic! Wow, I don’t know how many people could have held it together so
    well with all that was at stake and still perform.
    That’s why you are professional. You settled quickly
    that was smart too. Less stress on Suri and Kate
    that means you get more privileges with your daughter.

    6. Choose your friends more wisely, someone very
    close to you is using you. It’s a man not a woman.

    7. Three failed marriages, you just hit 50 – not a very good score there…date for now, watch it, relax
    you don’t need to jump into another marriage in 2.5 months. Next time YOU choose the lady, not the Scientologist. Maybe your first question should be about philosophy and religion. Unless you want to
    convert to something else easier to manage.

    PS I did find the booklet, “the of p” helpful.

    I actually don’t buy this story. Katie had no reason to trust or engage Nicole, whose divorce to Tom was not the power play that this was. Yes, her career thrived, but Tom’s did not suffer and he got the kids. This is one of those wishful thinking stories, like Brad meeting in secret with Jen. One source? Doubtful. Doesn’t benefit either of them and Katie wouldn’t risk trusting anyone outside of her immediate family and new legal/PR teams.

  16. Malcolm • July 14, 2012 @ 12:49 AM

    I love how people who are probably Christian are ripping Tom for believing in Scientology. “my fairy tale is better than yours!”

  17. M • July 14, 2012 @ 8:54 AM

    For those who comment writing to Tom, hmm… I’m pretty sure Tom Cruise won’t read this. #justsaying

  18. C • July 15, 2012 @ 11:11 AM

    Malcolm….I’m not a Christian and I think Scientology is a cult and not a religion.

    And I’m pretty sure that some Scientologist verbally trash other religions like Christianity.

    And if Tom is being ripped by Scientology non-believers, whatever their religion, that is to be expected when someone publicly pushes their religion or believes onto the public. Some will loudly defend their faith.

  19. Sylvia • July 16, 2012 @ 9:51 AM

    Looks like Katie thought this thing through and didn’t rush in without a plan. I think her main concern is her daughter. One smart cookie. Don’t like to see anyone being taken advantage of and I am sure Tom would have nailed her to the wall if he had an inkling of her game plan. Surprise is the best offence. Would hate to see Suri influenced by Scientology. Remember Jonesville!!!

  20. Lori • July 16, 2012 @ 1:28 PM

    Good for you Katie! Suri comes first

  21. Me • July 17, 2012 @ 8:02 PM

    Scientology is not understood by many who have not been exposed to it.

    In my expierence, Scientologists do not bash other religions, nor do they encourage suicide, in fact by Scientology teachings, you have to reach enlightenment, otherwise you’re doomed to come back until you have reached that enlightenment, or your sentance is up.

    I find it interesting how so many of you are willing to bash Scientology, yet how many of you have actually gone to the source for any information? How many of you have been there? And as for bashing Tom for forcing his beliefs oh others, think about Christianity, they have forced their views and beliefs on others way more violently than pretty much any other religion. We are so innundated with Christianty right down to our calender, BC and AD, these are Christian, Christmas, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, St. Valintine’s Day, Ash Wed., Lent, etc. yet we don’t dare bash Christianity, and no one wonders why.

    What makes any of you believe this split is not just between two people and relious beliefs are just coincidental, and the press hasn’t let go of this bone, just as pit-bulls won’t let go.

    All organized religons are cults, religion is how we explain things we do not understand, the organization comes from like minded people coming together, and because we are social creatures, those who want to fit in can be swayed to believe anything, but at the core all organized religions are cults. People are social creatures and thus create these organized religions and cults. Because Scientology is so different from the other choices, it attracts ridicule, and other such negitveity.

    Having said that, Scientology is not for me, but having been there, and grown up in it, I can say it’s not for me. It does work for other though, just as Christianity, and other religions appeal and work for other people, and atheism works for still others. You should know both sides of any story before forming an opinion.
