    PARIS - Tom Cruise popped the question to Katie Holmes at the Eiffel Tower early Friday and then announced the news to the world — they’re getting married.

    Cruise turned to Holmes: “What did you say, darling? She said, ‘Yes.’ ... I’ve never actually been to the Eiffel Tower and I just, it’s Paris, you know. It’s beautiful, a beautiful city. It’s very romantic. I’m excited to be here.”

    No wedding date has been set, Cruise said. “We haven’t discussed that — one step at a time.”


Wonder what show Tom's going on next to display his furniture gymnastics? Congratulations...I guess...

This is now officially the beginning of the end of Katie Holmes' once promising career.

How in God's name if you are Katie's parents can you be happy about this?

Tom Cruise has officially past John Travolta as the biggest superstar turned wierdo ever, and that is tough to do.

Good luck Kaite. You;ll need it.

By the way, I got dibs on three years. Max.

And I seem to recall Cruise and Travolta have something in common, although I can't seem to remember what it is...

Do you really think you can blame L. Ron Hubbard for this?

Two words: Battlefield Earth.

Which brings me to the all-time, best review of a movie I've ever read: Roger Ebert: Battlefield Earth.

With lines like,"'Battlefield Earth' is like taking a bus trip with someone who has needed a bath for a long time. It's not merely bad; it's unpleasant in a hostile way."

It was an arranged marriage. Katie Holmes is a self-declared virgin who dreamed about marrying Tom Cruise. The Scientology center apparently brought in a bunch of women for Cruise to look over. That's why neither of them can say how they met.

At least this is what I read in the tabloids at the dentist's office.

Wasn't that the rumor about his marriage to Nicole Kidman? That it was arranged to prevent revealing that Cruise was really gay which would hurt his image as an action star.

Yes, the rumor was that Kidman was an aloof bisexual beard for the very gay Tom Cruise, that their marriage and divorce were choked with non-disclosure agreements and various legally established permissions (such as Kidman not being deemed "at fault" during a divorce because of her "swinging"), and that Tom Cruise has had a svelte male personal trainer travel absolutely everywhere with him for over 15 years. Those are the rumors, anyway.

Personally, I feel bad for Katie Holmes. The Scientology People are not to be messed with. Caught up in the haze of love and whirlwind romance, she may not stop to think about whether she minds signing away a great deal of her legal rights to the Church of Scientology. The marriage may be over in three years, but once involved with the COS, it can be notoriously difficult to get out. I'm sure a great deal of what I've read about them has been exagerrated, but there's an awful abundance of horror stories out there. And they do keep a practical brigade of extremely good attorneys on retainer.

James van der Beek would never have gotten her mixed up in all this.

No. And 5'7" seems a little generous for Tommy, there.

I refuse to be a naysayer. I wish them the best; maybe they can pull this out of their asses and make it work.

Realistically, how many high profile Hollywood marriages work? Outside of Travolta's marriage?

Seriously, this girl has been my number one celebrity crush for at least 6 years. Now not only do I have to fight off the biggest box office draw in America, but I have to also contend with a religion? No thank you.

Congrats, Jennifer Love Hewitt, you just moved up into the number one spot, Miss America-style.

Dear NBC Foreign Desk:

When you decide to blast over the black box that Tom and Katie are officially engaged, you've announced to every affiliate that you have nothing else to do.

-----

Forget the idea of how long they'll be married; when do they adopt their first kid?

Katie Holmes was engaged for four years and never did the deed? As a wise Gorilla once said, "Highly unlikely".

Unless what they say is true, and dating Tom Cruise makes your hymen grow back.

The best thing about TC lately is his feud with Brooke Shields and the fact that she's outwitted him at every turn of the press release. Dude, you're getting served by Brooke Shields.
