Originally posted by MSNBCPARIS - 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...

Pfft. They'll be lucky to see three months. Put me down for five weeks.
"He is the most overrated piece of crap in the league. He bitched and whined after he got his ass beaten in New England last year, so the NFL changed the rules. Then he got his ass beaten in New England again. Every year he's the top MVP candidate. Every year he's supposed to be the best. Every year he's going to carry the Colts to the Super Bowl. And every single year he goes to New England and gets his ass beaten. And his brother's a whiny little bitch." -A friend of mine, on Peyton Manning
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.

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.

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.
That show really grew on me last year, and this year (with Danny Devito) looks especially funny. The promos ("you're banging your sister?") are killing me this season, and I'm really looking forward to this season.
