    WHAT?!?!? NO!!!! I think I was the only one who thought they were really sweet as a couple. This makes me very sad. Scientology aside.

  3. Kaitertot says:

    I know! I just read an article recently about how happy they seemed and how Tom Cruise’s career has finally bounced back from the backlash his weirdness created.

    It seems sort of timely in a fishy way. Suddenly his career is back on track and then they divorce? Hmmm…

  4. KateEms says:

    Hahaha wait… fur BACKPACK?! Wow.

    Also, the Jane Lynch/Kathleen Turner friendship makes me so happy. It is a life goal of mine to meet (hopefully befriend) Jane Lynch. I’m glad one Kate(/Kathleen) is!
