    She looks great and she’s a great actress! Losing Tom Cruise was the best thing that ever happened to Nicole! It’s always nice to see celebs giving back!

    “Victoria”………don’t you mean “Katie”….LOL

    No one else would care and make the comments you do except the jealous, untalented, golddigger Katie Homely.

    I’m so glad Nicole has gone back to the reddish hair color. She is absolute perfection. I saw her on Oprah with Penelope Cruz and she is gorgeous. I admire her self-discipline because one can easily tell she works very hard to keep her great figure.

    Nicole is the perfect 10 when you consider her looks, talent, intelligence, philanthropy, and her husband isn’t bad either.

    Dana Says:

    Oh…I forgot to say that Nicole does not dress her daughter up like a hooker either.

    Katie Holmes is an unfit mother showing her daughter’s private parts to the paparazzi. I’m so glad Jared posted them for everyone to see the horrible mother Katie is. I’m also glad that the photos have been removed.

    Now get some utilities, clean water, housing and plentiful jobs and education there.. then toss out the dictator-mind, man is ruler for life régime with his many female concubines, doctors who only want to treat aids and other sex related diseases also teaching illicit morals to be the norm.. and you got a nice place to live.
