I doubt there will come a time when I’m not beating this dead horse called “Suri Must Never Walk“. I do hope alla y’all remember this child is SIX years of age. Maybe I’d have better upper body strength if I had carried my kids around until they graduated from high school. (And for those of you shouting at the screen that I emotionallylug my adult sons around–SHUTTY.)
Here we have Katie (no longer Kate!) after calling all paps to snap away at Suri’s “normal life” now that they have escaped Tommy Girl’s Co$ clutches.
That kid is bloody ENORMOUS, is what she is. Honestly. I’ve left all of them alone since the announcement of the divorce of the year, but I just can’t with the carrying. I mean, WHERE is Katie under all that kid?
I don’t buy the notion that “oh, Suri’s SCARED!” and thus needs to be carried like a tiny baby. She’s six bloody years old, high spirited, bossy, used to getting her own way, and dare I say, spoiled rotten. Look. At. Her!! Here’s Katie lugging that KID around MOMA earlier today.
Remember this photo? Suri took after some paps last year at the airport. I’m sure they took their photos and ran like hell. I would’ve.
Katie Holmes now has my undying respect for having beaten Tom Cruise and those creepy Scientologists at their own game–if only she could talk about it, but I realize that wouldn’t be in Suri’s best interest. Can’t you just hear those Scientolo-loons telling Tommy Girl to “MAKE THIS GO AWAY!” ? Oh, David Miscavige.
Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe confirmed the deal in a statement to PEOPLE:
“The case has been settled and the agreement has been signed. We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life.
“This result could not have been achieved without the hard work of my partner Gary Skoloff and our co-counsel Allan Mayefsky, Michael Mosberg and Larry Trachtenberg of Aronson Mayefsky and Sloan and Peter Walzer and Chris Melcher of Walzer & Melcher in California.
“We thank Tom’s counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution.”
Cruise’s attorney Dennis Wasser separately told PEOPLE, “All the lawyers and the parties are happy that it’s done, the deal was closed and we wish everyone well.”
Tom and Katie issued this little fluffy statement, which sort of alludes to different “beliefs” between the couple (well, DURRRP).
“We are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suri’s best interests. We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents,“ says the statement from Holmes and Cruise’s reps, Nanci Ryder and Amanda Lundberg respectively.
We will never know what Katie has on Tom in order to get this dissolution matter settled so quickly…but we sure can assume and allege, can’t we?
