Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise Are Divorcing & We're Jumping on the Couch With Joy (VIDEO)

OMG 18

katie holmes tom cruiseLooks like Katie couldn't wait to get goin'!Surprise, surprise! Katie Holmes has filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, according to an exclusive report from People. The news was confirmed by Katie's attorney, Jonathan Wolfe, who said, "This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest." PLUS -- Katie is seeking sole custody of Suri! WOW, huh?

Meanwhile, Tom's rep confirmed with this statement: "Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy." So much talk of privacy! (He didn't seem to care much about privacy when he was jumping up and down on couches now, did he?) Does that mean we can't throw an over-the-top fete on behalf of Katie's contract expiration, ahem, moving on?

Looks like Katie got off pretty good ... Just five years, eh? Seems to me Nicole Kidman signed up to put up with Tom's nonsense for 10 years before she could go off and marry her real Prince Charming (aka Keith Urban). Now, we can only hope that Katie follows in Nicole's footsteps. Maybe this means she can get back together with the man who is probably Suri's real dad ex-boyfriend Chris Klein?!? Or ex-ex-boyfriend Joshua Jackson? (Probably not, but we Dawson's Creek fans can dream!)

Either way, I can't wait to see her move on to another guy she has a real, genuine connection with and who she can be herself with! Because let's be honest. Whether or not you believe TomKat's marriage was for real, you have to admit that ever since the two got together, Katie's been a shadow of her former self. So creepy. It's like he took her soul as a security deposit! But now, with divorce looming, she's totally primed for a major personality (and likely also career) COMEBACK! Woohoo!

What a relief. Let's just hope the real reason Tom is "deeply saddened" isn't that he now has to contract wed another starlet to keep up appearances.

It's really sad when a marriage breaks up, but it may be for the best in this case. Every time I see a photo of her she just doesn't look happy. God I hope she doesn't get back with Chris Klein, he was an a**....

Tom just needs to come out of the closet.  I doubt he ever will though.  He's more likely to announce he's an alien than gay.  We'll find out after he dies...someone will write a tell all

Katie probably got sick of Tom Cruise and his Scientology.  I hate to see divorce also but I'm sure it'll work out for the best.  Just don't use the daughter as a tug of war......

I'm definitely not one to cheer for anyone's divorce, but I am jumping a little on the couch in my head. : ) Good work, and good luck, Katie!

As for a tell-all? I'll bet Katie and Kellie Preston can write that one.

I dont think he is gay. It was probably the whole scientology thing.

i am rooting for Katie to get sole custody, and im still puzzled as to why Nicole didnt ask for custody and gave it to Tom...

BTW Tom has ALREADY stated he is an alien by publicly declaring to believe, whole heartedly, in everything Scientology stands for..

i would soooo read Katies tell all.. but i still DO NOT BELIEVE she is a great actress and i dont think she ever will be.. EVER.  she will always be ExTomCruise... she never could act and divorcing Tom wont change that.   and yes, i did she her portrayal of Jackie O and it was HORRID... i dont know what some of those critics were on when they said it was good..

GEE what has taken her so long, we knew she would never make it, marriages just dont last w/so called stars, what they di with their child Suri and let her grow up before her time w/heels and everything they both were DUMB, Get on with your ives and stay SINGLE at least you will always love yourself and thats very important to you guys, Don't have time for real love just for yourself, so enjoy life and stay happy alone.....:)-


Gosh people. These are real people. Not just made up imaginary beings who live in some strange fairytale land. The sarcasm and cruelty everyone is showing is appalling. There's a little girl involved. Shame, shame, shame.
