Katie Holmes: I Loved Notre Dame Academy!

Katie Holmes: I Loved Notre Dame Academy!

Katie Holmes heads to the Gerald Schoenfeld theater in New York City to perform in the Broadway play All My Sons. (Leonardo DiCaprio reportedly watched that performance. The night before, Katie wore a fun pair of lined stockings!)

The 29-year-old actress reminiscenced to NYT about attending Notre Dame Academy in Toledo, Ohio. She shared, “I went to an all girls academy, which I loved because we wore uniforms and really supported each other. We had a lunch table that was meant for six girls and we stuffed about 25 around the table. We all helped each other learn physics and calculus and all those subjects that frankly we didn’t think was necessary at the time. But we got each other through it while looking at YM magazine and Seventeen and making sure our priorities were in order.”

    No, you are right – for her she does look well dressed, but is always awkward or something. However, I think Nicole Kidman looks kind of awkward also, but she always seems to pull off her looks. Can’t quite figure out why Katie looks so bad most of the time. I think it is the pieces she chooses and how she puts them together. They don’t gel. That coat is not good with jeans and it doesn’t look good on her. Guess I don’t understand why when she stands in front of a mirror she doesn’t see that she looks not put together. There have been a few outfits that I thought she was stunning in–that long orange dress she wore with the royal blue shoes for some premiere. Although I think the shoes could have looked better with a different style and color. The dress itself was great for her coloring and the style matched her body proportions. But those successes are few and far inbetween the mediocre.

    Suri “Money Maker” Cruise!!!

    Fake-Daddy Tom has found a way to save his stash of planes and his new mansion.

    Since “Daddy” ain’t got no career anymore, little Suri is shaking her money-making finger right up her nose and making Daddy Tom and Ho Katie the money they need to shop on.

    Poor little money maker…she turns 3 years old and she’s already working the streets of New York City.

    Because Katie used to date Chris. And he and Ginnifer just broke off – and some are saying Katie is the reason.

    I can assure you that they did not break up over Katie. He dumped her, why would he want her back? Believe me, Chris Klein is thankful that he did not marry Katie Holmes because he sees that she is basically a ho and cares only about PR and $$$. Chris probably kisses the floor each night before he goes to bed thanking Tom for taking her. She probably gave Chris herpes though cause she’s got mouth herpes. Disgusting. You know where it comes from??? Ick!

    Mr. Blonde Says:

    How could Holmes possible be the reason, #62?

    I don’t care if people dislike TomKat, #66.

    What are they doing that’s abnormal and attention seeking here or anywhere? They’re just living their lives.

    Holmes isn’t anorexic and she doesn’t need to use or even can’t use her kid for publicity. She’s famous enough.

    Or maybe there’s nothing to admit to and Cruise really is the father, #68.

    They’re just clothes, #72. Chill out,

    It’s long since been verified, #73. That college was Columbia by the way.

    How is Suri a money maker? I thought the pics they took of her were public pics that the Cruises’ do not sell public pics of Suri. I guess Tom Cruise will have to patent her before Joshua Jackson declares himself the father, if he ever does.

    Either there’s something really interesting on the concrete, or she’s being coached by Vicky B.

    Not only she dresses so well but she’s a role model to many girls and women.

    Katie did not have to spread her legs to get ahead, she was a great student at NDA. Maybe some of the other girls there had to, knowing who went there I wouldn’t be surprised. But as for Katie, she knows her stuff! If she did do those kinds of things the entire glass city would know about it.

    I knew her in the past and most of you are completely wrong about her. It amazes me how quickly you people believe what you read in the tabloids. I thought you were smarter?

    Katie is smart, funny, and a very kind and polite person. She came from a respectful family. She never needs makeup to look good. In person she looks very graceful and modelesque. She’s very considerate, and is married to a very famous man. You people are so critical because you’re bored and jealous. :) My two cents. For those of you who insult her clothes/outfits, I’d like to see your pictures? I can already guess you will have no room to talk.

    twlightzone Says:

    browniebites- lol

    don’t believe a word you said about knowing her. ugh!

    Katie is DUMB to have married Tom and for all the wrong reasons and now she is “paying for it”.

    Nope….no boredom or jealously here. If you think there are no problems with her fashion sense……ummmmm….can’t imagine what YOUR fashion sense is! yuck!

    Go back and study some more. LOL

    Actually, I am a sophomore at Notre Dame Academy in Toledo, Ohio. Which is the school Katie attended and NDA teaches us to be independent women. Being inferior to a man is the exact opposite of what we are taught.

    Jenna Says:

    I am a sophomore at Notre Dame Academy, the exact school Katie attended, and we are actually an academy as well as an All girls catholic school. But we are a college preporatory Academy.

    Jenna Says:

    For everyone who is bashing Notre Dame Academy. I want you to know that Notre Dame is an All girls catholic school as well as a college preporatory ACADEMY. And at NDA we are taught that no one is superior to anyone else. The thought of women being inferior to men is the complete opposite of what NDA teaches us. I am a sophomore at Notre Dame Academy, the same school Katie went to in Toledo Ohio and I am proud to call myself an Eagle! Know your facts before you accuse us of being inferior to men, thanks.

    Alexandra Says:


    I totally agree with you! I hope we will be able to see her at our school one day!! Anyways, I don’t follow any of this gossip news very much or any of the facts of these people, but I will say that NDA is a great school and its not the school that turns out the students but it is the students who take what they want from the school and then change any of thier opinions or values. Our school teaches a lot of great things and I will only say great things about NDA because it’s such a great school!!

    NDAEAGLE Says:

    @nysro: Definitely not true! I go to that school and they teach us to be independent… the very opposite of what you claim!

    @savannah: The official name of the school is: “Notre Dame Academy”. Yes indeed an all girls private CATHOLIC school. One of the best around.
