We're beginning to hear more about why Katie Holmes has filed from divorce from Tom Cruise and it's because of his -- hair! Bwaha. Of course not. No, he was having an affair -- with a woman! Bwahah. Double of course not. It's because of his devotion to Scientology. His fierce, unwavering, unnerving, and downright scary as all hell devotion to Scientology. Supposedly. Did you really think it was going to be anything else? B.O.? No, KSW! (That's "Keep Scientology Working," for the uninitiated and, yeah, I had to look it up.)
Apparently Katie began to worry for the future of little Suri, who would no doubt be brought up in the Scientology faith. Word has it she is now at the age (she's six) when Scientology would take over her brain begin to become important to her. And Katie wasn't so down with that. But why not? I mean, could it somehow have escaped Katie's notice that Tom was a Scientoloholic?
Tom has been one of the most -- if not the most -- famous advocates for Scientology in the world. Long before he met Katie. Why would she suddenly have a problem with its teachings? Could it be that Tom's big movie star status, his wealth, his power in the industry, and his high-paying contract good looks won her over in the beginning but started to look terrifying less appealing as time wore on?
We all know women who had major red flags about guys and went ahead and got involved with them anyway. At first, the flags weren't that big, and they added a little spice to things. But years later, those little flags became ENORMOUS PLANET-SIZED FLAGS.
Also, a child can change your priorities. Maybe Katie thought she'd be fine with raising a kid under Scientology, but when she had Suri, she began to change her mind about it. Maybe motherhood became more important than alienhood.
If you watch the video below of Tom raving on (and on ...) about Scientology (and KSW's and SP's and Orgs and a whole lotta wackadoodle stuff) you'll wonder what Katie saw in this guy. And how she lasted so long.
What do you think about Scientology?
