The End is Nigh ...
Irrefutable proof of the end of civilization comes this morning in the form of a news report that Tom Cruise proposed to Katie Holmes at the Eiffel Tower.
Let's look at the facts:
[My pal Doreen points out in her comment that Cruise was married first to Mimi Rogers and kicked her to the curb for Nicole Kidman. I'd forgotten about that.]
Cruise was married to Nicole Kidman for 10 years. They adopted two children together. He eventually kicked her to the curb. Perhaps the marriage had run its course. Or maybe Kidman is too damn smart to buy into all the Scientology crap.
Then Cruise quickly hooked up with Penelope Cruz. Cruise and Cruz, the media oh-so-cleverly called them. (Better than "Brangelina," though.) Three years with the insanely beautfiul accented one and he couldn't make that work.
So now comes Holmes, 16 years his junior. They've been dating for, what?, 7 weeks? Actually, it's been less like dating and more like mugging for every camera they can find.
I'm not usually a betting woman, but if this marriage actually takes place, I give this "relationship" six months.
