    they can hear, and see what your visually thinking
    this is the absolute complete truth!!!
    The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces, segregate from everybody else-only associate with Asians and don’t associate with non Asians that much, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they don’t like, find astonishing, or funny etc because those people might see that and really wonder what that was that just happened there and see the connection, and they might accidentally say something similar to what the person was just thinking and going to say. If they all associated with non Asians a lot more then there would be a lot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those people think things they don’t like etc, so they segregate and only associate with Asians so there won’t be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place.
    Every single Asian alive is hiding their mind reading abilities, they don’t want ANYBODY to know that they can read minds, they will always deny that they can read minds, they will lie about having mind reading abilities forever!!!
    Because they value hiding their mind reading abilities more than their own lives!
    That’s why nobody knows about it!
    I know this may sound crazy, impossible and unbelievable, BUT IT ISN’T CRAZY WHEN IT’S TRUE

    Katie needs to call the police or move out of NYC to a small town like Demi Moore did. This is no way for a kid to grow up!

    DB Says:

    I wish Katie would not parade that poor child out in front of the Paps like that. The kid looks MISERABLE every time she is forced to do Katie’s “I need popularity” walk. It’s sad and frustrating. Why can’t she just be a kind-hearted, unselfish mom who focuses on what’s best for her CHILD?

    Janet Says:

    Why is Katie dragging this child out on a school night? Please find some grown-up friends and stop using your child to get your picture taken. Shame on you!!

    Jocelyn Says:

    I’m beginning to think that Katie has some mental health issues to deal with. She desperately needs to stop dragging that poor child out for photo ops. For goodness sake, it’s a school night, and this is a child who just began school. My kids are so tired for the first couple of weeks. She should be home with a book and a cuddle, not at some random hotel.

    rubyz Says:

    Shame on Holmes for using her little daughter incessantly in order to pander to her own wannabe fame/career. She, and NOT the paps, and not anyone else, is responsible for her daughter’s privacy and her daughter’s well-being. It is HER job to do whatever it takes to protect her daughter. Sadly, I don’t see this happening, not now and not ever. The woman is a shameless publicity ****. Disgusting!

    I know some folks here hate Tom Cruise, but I was wondering if he should just pop in there and swoop the poor girl up and take her on a stress free weekend – far, far away from the press.

    krix Says:

    Is there some sort of professional advice that states if a child has what seems to be a serious aversion to something to force them anyway and eventually they’ll get over it? If so, seems pretty vicious.
    Also, if it’s true that there is a parking garage in her apartment complex then why not use it? Suri has enough things to get use to – school, new environment, parents divorce/not living together, new people, etc.

    Lil Says:

    I am not sure why everyone here is blaming Katie. In my opinion she is just trying to have a normal life. I do not see her “trying” anything. She does not give a damn about looking glamorous. At times her look is even too casual. The gal is just trying to have a normal life. Why wouldn’t idiots with cameras leave those two alone?!

    Suri looks spoiled. Hang in there Katie. For every “snarky” attitude or comment she obviously says about the paps, have her think of 2-3 positive attributes about the paps. Or don’t take her out until you can try this with other people she “cops” an attitude with. Otherwise she is going to be one unhappy lady.

  14. 14
    DB Says:

    @Sincerely concerned: No, she looks upset and scared by all those PAPS flashing bulb’s in her face.

    Good god – how is a child supposed to live a happy, normal life with these people yelling into her face and flashing cameras into her eyes all freaking day?

    Betsy K. Says:

    Katie Holmes is one disgusting mother. This is serious child abuse. She is mentally and emotionally abusing this young child. This is absurd and should be reported to someone who can monitor this abuse. I never thought I would say this , but this is the first time I can say a child is better off with her father. Where is Tom and his family in this abuse? Save this little girl!

  16. 16
    sadie Says:

    Do either of them have friends their own age? Maybe Katie can hang out with other grownups and call the paps to come take pictures of their outings.

    Suri should have privacy and kids her age to hang out with. Your 6 year-old child shouldn’t be your only friend Katie!

    Go Ask Alice Says:

    I agree with qll of you , but maqy of us have been saying that for YEARS now , something n aint’ normal: Suri at late night dinners, late night adult plays, her mommy is her only friend. and the child is never dressed properly according to the weather and season.
    Why is kaite leavinga hotel in Tribecca with Suir? Why?
    There is NO LOGICALLY answer.
    Dinner? Kaite
    has a multimillion dollar home. Can’t she cook a meal
    for her child or have the nanny or chef do so.
    This is aschool night and real school time for this child which must be very weird and new for her because she has never had rules, boundaries, been in a school environment.
    maybe kaite has her going part-time to normal school.
    late night? No child needs to be out late night acccompanying mommy to grow up things. Suri has had a life time of the night life to last her until she is at least 18, LOL!!!!!
    Clearly the child is disturbed, fightened, perpelexed and angry about strangers calling her name out and the dozens of flahsbulbs going off, blinding flashes.
    Clothes? Suri is her Roger Vivetner designer, custom made shoes, sleeveless dress in fall , Sept., at night in NYC.
    Doncha’ think some sleeves and jeans/pants/tights would be better. Really.

    We all could go on and on.
    Weoird. kaite has some screws loose too like Tom. That is why she married him in the first place.
    All the other girls who were interviewed so to speak ran for their lives like there was no tomorrow when they found out what was going on. Weird.

    Take one look at what Kate Middleton is in! No privacy! When you are
    Not on a public street but on Private property! Of course no charges
    That is how the paps work.. Getting the shot they do not care about
    Suri! Or the celebrity! Kati is coming out of a hotel tell us what was
    She doing in the hotel? Seeing a guy …in a room..nanny for Suri

    Thornton Says:

    Some people sure are obsessed with Katie Holmes. Within a few minutes of pictures being posted, the same few posters are here saying nasty things about her. It seems like DB, and others, have absolutely no life. Katie lives in their head and controls their life. The reality is those pictures would have taken about 5 seconds to take. They are all taken in a doorway of a building as they leave, and then they are gone. But in your world they should stay holed up in their apartment so they can live their lives for you and not themselves. As for Tom Cruise, DB, get real that he would give Suri a relaxing weekend. I remember when he had her with him in Florida, they were sitting on some stands with no one around them, everyone snapping pictures of them. Tom was smiling, waving, having a great time, while Suri looked miserable. And that wasn’t going to be 5 seconds before they got on with their lives like in this case with Suri and Katie. They would have to sit there for the whole show with people staring at Suri. I don’t know, you must be an obsessed Scientologist. It’s time for some of you to start worrying about your own actions and sanity, instead of hating on others so you don’t have to think about how insane you are becoming.

    I think the kid was upset because of strong lights from video cameras. And it’s probably she wanted to eat something and the mother took her out. Since Suri was allowed to wear heels, why not give her some eye shades??

    LOL Says:

    Schools are off in New York, Monday and Tueday for the Jewish New Year, so know it alls, there is no school.
    Gee Katie gave Birth to Suri, so can you can repeat the same thing over and over, it is Katie’s child, and she does make the decisions.
    Tom is where he always is, working or getting Audited, you just realized that Sci-Fi comes before Suri, why would a father not ask for joint custody.
    It was normal to see these two together all the time, so it is funny to see all this outrage for something that was going on for the last three to four years, get real.

    @Pansies in a pot: Suri does not go to a Catholic school.
    Schools in New York, Public and Private are off for the Jewish New, even in NJ schools are off.
    Maybe you’re niece told her parents she was going to school.
    You guys can’t admit you were wrong, it can’t be that hard to say, you don’t know Suri’s School Scheldue, instead of jumping up Katie’s A SS.

    Wow! Didn’t mean to upset ya! I think you have your people screwed up. I don’t have a niece who goes to school in New York. I simply asked if Catholic schools celebrate Jewish holidays. I truly didn’t know. Not quite sure what you are talking about in saying we can’t admit when wrong. I read all along Suri was going to Catholic school. That was printed all over the place. So, she isn’t. Big deal. I was wrong.

    tSquared Says:

    I don’t think Suri is as upset about the paps as it looks. If you go to FaceBook–and Loving Katie Holmes, whoever runs that page posts dozens of pictures from each sighting. and often when you look at Suri (both Katie and Tom) when she is being carried, I swear that child is smirking. I think she has figured out that she gets more attention from both Tom and Katie if she acts like she is upset with the paps. Tom and Katie both have done a piss poor job of teaching this child how to deal with the paps. Think about it. There are very few A+++ listers and more A listers–none of their kids act like this. Each child is different, some more sensitive than others, but one would think with all of the resources that Tom and Katie have available that they would be able to teach this child to deal with these idiot paps. Unfortunately Tom sees nothing wrong with it–he has stated it is what it is and she needs to get used to it. Katie seems paranoid about keeping the child with her. So Suri has two inept parents when it comes with the paps. Too bad. She is the one that will suffer. Probably growing up to be Lindsay Lohan II.

    That is not about Holm and Suri but about YOU here.people

    It is something WRONG WITH YOU !
    Suri is a CHILD and isnot any interest to take picktures of her and sail to tabloid because same people wacht it

    Take picture of own kids and sale them !

    azzurra Says:

    A woman that can planed a sneaky divorce is definitely capable of taking care of her kid from Paps if SHE WANTS to! So I guess that’s it! So, if Katie really has to parade Suri, please give this poor kid a sunglasses or a hat to protect her eyes from the scaring flash light!

  48. 48

    Bring it down a few notches!
    Seriously! your on a CELEBRITY blog site –what did you expect?
    From Presidents kids to Celebrities mini me the world is fascinated, So pictures will be taken. Get over it!
    The degree and frequency for which pictures are snapped and we the PUBLIC see them depends on the measures the parent takes to keep their child out of spot light. FACT!
    As has been mentioned by others on this and other Katie Holmes & Suri post, if Katie wants to go STEALTH, she more than capable of doing it.

    Grandma of Four Says:

    All the negative comments…exhausting! Katie…and anyone else for that matter…has a right to live where she chooses with her child. She has a right not to be house bound and be able to get out side and live. YES…she should use underground entering and exiting as much as possible. However, that being said, stores, restaurants, museums, theatres, you name it….ALL do not have underground garages! Let’s get real about that! The problem is the crazy press and the paps! They are out of control. And, how many restraining orders should Katie have to go to court to get? Her reasoning just may be…”If I sit in my apartment, the interest from those nuts will just become more intense. If I get out and live, hopefully, the over the top interest will lessen!” Many other “stars” live in NYC with their kids and have not left. There will be a point where the intense interest will lessen. Afterall, Suri has not been photographed at school except the on the first day. Maybe the paps have given up on that! Good luck to Katie and Suri!

    susie q Says:

    Ms. Holmes purportedly demanded full custody of this child to protect her from the press and her father. I suspect her very caring parents would not have paraded her out in public on a school night.

    She needs to be at home…in her room ..relaxing from what must have been a very stressful week in a new school…her very first…trying to make new friends.

    Ms. Homes needs a parenting coach…not a life coach for her own public relation skills

    You are all right. But there is no school in NYC on Monday and Tuesday this week due to Jewish holidays. However, she does need stability and an established bedtime. It is a shame, that little Suri has to grow up this way. Her mother is not even attempting to give her a chance of normalcy. I hope she can be wise on her own and not grow up to be like a Lohan. I really thought that Katie would take her out of the spotlight and attempt to give her a normal childhood. I guess that is her version of normalcy? Sigh….

    Olive Says:

    Katie’s eyes are protected by sunglasses, but Suri’s isn’t and Katie doesn’t even seem to notice or care. She is a terrible mother and I sometimes wonder what is going on in her mind. Other Real A list stars have kept their kids away fromt he paps without having to “hide” and those kids turned out to be normal. They go to college and you might hear about them after they finish school, but you don’t see them while they’re growing up. Meryl Streep, Annette Bening etc kept the paps away and they really tried to get photos of Warren Beatty’s kids, but they never got photos of them.

  62. 62
    Lisa Paul Says:

    So you think the best thing a celebrity mother should do is hide her daughter in an apartment all day with the nanny, never let the kid out? Never let her go places with her mom? THAT’S cruelty. It is NOT Katie’s fault. Sadly, Suri will have to deal with this all her life. So it’s better she get used to it with her mom holding her hand. I think Katie is doing an amazing job trying to get Suri’s life back on track. Don’t you think it upsets Katie likes seeing Suri cry? It’s as hard for her as it is for Suri, but she does it anyway—faces the cameras, so she can try to get Suri immune it all and give Suri as normal a life possible. Bravo Katie Holmes.

  63. 63
    Sincerely concerned Says:

    That is a way to look at it DB. Except I’ve seen too many of her temper tantrums. For all you know she’s asking to go out. Plus, she’s grown up under the spotlight and NOW it bothers her. I agree with Katie. Ignore it, just like any temper tantrum. ….and stay away from the sugar rush Tom got her hooked on. it may just be a sugar drop. I.e., no more cupcakes for awhile. Nip that in the bud? The last thing Suri needs at this time is to be compared to Hony Boo Boo. –fellow Ohioan

  64. 64
    Sincerely concerned Says:

    After just reading all these comments, all I’m seeing is a bunch of Monday morning quarterbacks. Did you ever think that MAYBE she is being professionally counseled on how to parent Suri though these tough times? Yes mom needs to mother but who are you to say that she doesn’t have a plan.

    I do think Katie is dealing with a 1st child syndrome. Katie needs to be more like HER mom. Like I watched at the zoo when she just got in her face and refocused Suri onto feeding the animals. I.e, step in with some coping tools you both can use. It can help you for life. TAKE CHARGE and because we all know this will be something new. Don’t forget. TAKE CHARGE! For your child. I see suri only looking at her mom for direction.

    Val Says:

    Someone Says:

    Katie Holmes is ONE of the best mothers. It is for the well being of Suri that she divorced Tom. Katie spends a LOT of quality time with Suri and Katie is doing FANTASTIC to help her daughter NOT to be affected by the divorce. Problem is with the PHOTOGRAPHERS!!!!
    The Photographers SHOULD STOP taking their photos!!!!

    Nana Says:

    Poor child! She’s been overindulged and overexposed during her young life. Very rarely do you see a happy face….her body language says it all! I bet she can throw one horrendous tantrum. The least Katie could do is provide Suri with a pair of sunglasses!

    You people are blaming the victims here while unregulated photographers are the real problem. They can’t just stop living and imprison themselves because they are being followed.

    By her choice, she’s raising her daughter in the public eye BUT I hope she’s not just winging it and someone is giving Katie some professional direction.

    sassy Says:

    Katie Holmes is a FANTASTIC mother!!!
    All the people with negative comments about her are SOOOO….ooo jealous of her!!!
    Katie has the prettiest face of an angel and the height and body of a supermodel. Yet, she is a down to earth person. Her clothes are FABULOUS and FASHIONABLE!!!
    She is the PERFECT mother spending quality time with her daughter!!!
    And NOT leaving the daughter with a nanny (I bet all of you with negative comments have nannies for your children— so irresponsible all of you are!)
    A child should be with her mother/father or both especially at this age!!!
    The problem with all of you are — you are mothers because you gave birth but for all of you– your child is not your highest priority, your clothes are, your jobs are!!!
    LEARN from Katie how to be a FANTASTIC, LOVING, CARING mother, who actually spends time with her child!!!!!!!!!!

    Why would any of us be jealous of her? She has the cult ready to take her down. She has no talent and continues to embarrass herself trying to convince us she does. The only reason she gets most of her opportunities is a) she is/was Mrs. Tom Cruise. You can bet yoru patooty that she’d be off the radar by now if she hadn’t married Tom. She is a small (TV) screen actress that keeps trying to be a big screen star. Ain’t gonna work Katie-you lack the talent and the charisma.

    As for her parenting skills? She, unlike other A-listers, has been unable to teach Suri the skills to be comfortable walking from A to B with the paps in attendance. And she DOES have a nanny – part-time at the moment I bet. There was a set of pics with the woman in the background (where all stars relegate their nannies and help–in the background). She has body guards and there are pics of them carrying Suri’s multitude of stuff-stuffed animals, blankets and the like.

    And most people aren’t Hollywood stars and many mothers have to work in this economy to make ends meet. Unlike Katie we can’t take our children to work. It has nothing to do with our clothes or jobs being a priority. It has to do with our employer frowning on bringing a child into the work place. Katie is able to bring her child wherever she goes because no one will tell her it is inappropriate to bring a child to the theater from 7-Midnight and Katie evidently sees nothing wrong with it either. Children Suri’s age need a solid 10 or so hours a night of sleep. Unless this kid sleeps till 10 or Noon she is not getting the sleep she needs. Katie takes her to adult restaurants and the theater’s evening shows constantly. A treat now and then–okay, but most parents would feel a constant diet of late night dinners and movies/shows/activities is not good parenting.

    And I don’t think anyone doubts that Katie or Tom cares and loves this child. But caring and loving a child doesn’t mean they are doing what is good for her. Her fear of the paps at age 6 is ridiculous. Her wanting to be carried constantly at age 6 is ridiculous. Her need to drag out a menagerie of stuffed animals is not, compared to other kids, age appropriate. Her need to have a blankie with her at all times is again, compared to other kids her age, a less mature behavior. Last summer she was still on a bottle with a pacifier. Five and a half years old is a way too old for pacifier and a bottle. She wasn’t potty trained until 4ish. So I would say this child appears to be less mature than most kids her age in spite of her parents allowing her to stay up late, taking her to adult shows and taking her to adult-oriented restaurants.

    So if you think Katie is a fantastic, loving, caring mother–good for you. I’m sure Katie is going to take note of your opinion and reward you for it.

    to @ sassy

    i agree with almost everything you’ve posted. except for one thing; i think that Suri is more than afraid of the Paps. i think this little girls hates them as well.

    Very, very well said. I commend you on all points, all truths. You spoke with eloquence, all the while not offending anyone.
    Katie Holmes is not fit to mother this child.

    Every picture tells a story, don’t it?

    SC Says:

    It always amazes me to read about or see photos of actors’ children who are now adults and I never saw photos or stories about them from babies until they were adults attending college or starting their own careers. I respect those parents. They protected their children, as most parents do, and try their best to give their kids space to grow up in an environment to be themselves instead of trying to be someone everyone else thinks you should be. Those who respect and protect their family’s privacy no matter what your own career is, earn my respect. Katie is always shamelessly smiling for her photo op, and Suri is 90%+ of the time, hiding her face, staring, crying, pouting, or looking down right traumatized as she is dragged in public on a daily basis. It is extremely well documented. A photo says a thousand words. What judge in her/his right mind wouldn’t be open to reconsider the primary residential custody issue under these circumstances? Suri, hang in there. Some day, you will have a choice.

    @ DB. Yes I agree it looks dreadful. BBBUT! For all you know she is demanding that she goes out so she can cop an attitude. Have you not ever raised a diabolical 6 y/o???? Parenting 101: ignore temper tantrums. This little girl grew up with the paparazzi. And now it’s a major ordeal. Just a thought.

    How about more of mom sitting on a bench while Suri plays with other children (and please not those freakin play dates). You know; swings and teeter totters. ….like the picture I saw of her swinging on the tire with 2 other girls. And please! Loose the cardigan sweater tied around her neck. It had “dork” written all over it. It was the first innocent smile I’ve seen of Suri in years.

    Then we will be able to see Katie for who she really is. Will she allow herself to associate with “the underlings”. Or is she truly the narcissistic, calculating. $@?/$ that many are suggesting….

    Sincerely concerned Says:

    Hey! Why does DB get her comments posted more than anyone else. What makes YOU so special? Do you know Katie?

  87. 87
    Sincerely concerned Says:

    Ok! We’ve got 2 possibilies here: Either Suri is having another temper tantrum that is being ignored. (parenting 101)
    Katie IS a narcissistic, calculating ?$&#%+ or clinical termed Munchousens by proxy). ….if the latter, SOMEONE should step in.
    Either way; only Katie knows

  88. 88
    Sincerely concerned Says:

    Katie needs to change it up and just take her to the park and let her play And sit on the bench with the other moms. Not only is this insane (doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result), …it’s sick. Even if she is having a “temper tantrum”. Who’s running the show here!!!

  89. 89
    Sincerely concerned Says:

    Jeez! I hope someone steps in for Suri. Not right to be parading her in front of the papz. With everything she has been through in the past 2 months. At first I though Suri needs to stop her temper tantrums but NOW I am beginning to think that Katie needs to step it up a bit as a mother. It’s not about you Katie. It’s about Suri right now!

    Sincerely concerned Says:

    Thornton: get real! Katie is putting herself out there. So sad too bad. When the split happened I BELIEVE everyone thought “she grew a brain”. Then took a big sigh of relief. But then to parade her child around. –I tried to cheer her on and felt so sorry. BBBUT, the child is obviously distressed. Why would a mother PUT her child in that situation(rhetorical ?). At $40 thou in child support. Shame on her. And Thornton you’re on here so “the we need a life” theory includes you.

  91. 91
    Sincerely concerned Says:

    My advice???? Lie low. ….More LOW. Be a mom, hone your acting skills. …BIG TIME!!!! And you can emerge from this a more grounded person. Right now! I need more convincing that your dtr. Needs all of this publicity. If you’re using her, you will pay.

  92. 92
    Sincerely concerned Says:

    Again DB!! How are you raking in all these thumbs up points now? No fair! What makes you so special? I swear you must know Katie. And NO!! I’m not a competitive person who needs an outlet like my husband tells me.

    Sincerely concerned Says:

    @val: Not a catholic school but Avenues school. -no religious denomination. –supposedly worldly. If I see Suri crying because of the paps one more time. Please someone tell Katie to hide from the Paps. If anything: make a game out of it with Suri. Get creative. You know? Headphones, sunglasses, baseball hat. Hey! I’m from Ohio and frequently go to Manhatten. ….to catch a show. The best memories my kids, in their 20′s now, remember is when I was being silly with them. You know? A caper. Out foxing the foxes. Hey! No harm. No fowl. Better than the dowdy Katie that we’ve been seeing. Not good for us women. I mean strike a blow for us women than peter out before the real race begins. Come on.

    Why on earth would you people blame Katie Holmes for a bunch of paparazzi taking her daughter’s picture? Even celebrities need to lead a normal life and going outside after the sun goes down (whether on a school night or weekend) IS what normal people and their children do, and often.

    Frankly, if it wasn’t for crazy kook Tom Cruise no one would care to take Suri’s picture. Frankly, if it wasn’t for stupid laws, paparazzi wouldn’t be *allowed* to take a minor’s pictures. Frankly, if it wasn’t for morons looking at the pictures of Suri, there would be no demand for pictures of Suri.

    These comments are fascinating. Does the world stop when it’s dark outside in other areas? If myself and my children hid in the house because the sun went to sleep, we’d never get anything done! Especially in the winter when it gets dark at 4pm! I feel bad for Katie. She gets such a bad rap when it’s Tom Cruise and Scientology that have really messed up the dynamics of the parent/child relationship between them all. Such a shame.

    It’s too bad Katie doesn’t have a publicist like Tom or paparazzi in her pocket to only show photos of Suri with her when she’s smiling. Tsk, tsk

    Sincerely concerned Says:

    @Jocelyn: Seriously me too!!!! Like Brittany Spears. Hope she is getting good counseling. I’d hate for Suri to end up with Tom. Sorry people but I’m all about children needing their mom so I am really rooting for her. How about another AnneHatheway?? I thought she was really good in The Batman Rises and she’s had her share of taken by the Svengali. Just hide the legs. …….I get it Tribeca area. …Baggy Jeans.

    @tSquared: the child was supposedly raised treated as an adult. Now all this??? Just the look of a child confused but expected to be treated as an adult. Where will she be in 10 yrs. wish we could do a flash forward. Probably nothing exciting.
