    Happy birthday Katie!!

  • @ALL

    SHE IS OLD…but doesn’t look a day over 50. Ha!!

    35? what will she look like at 40? Girl isn’t aging well at all.

    anyway notice we haven’t seen her walking the kid to school last couple of days. Maybe it’s daddy time for the holidays.

  • ewe

    her teeth are dingy.
    you are in the public eye woman, try a whitener or something.

  • Tom? CHris? Josh?

    Shouldn’t this birthday post be littered with Katie’s exes like jj did to poor Brad Pitt? Where are the pictures of Chris, Tom, Josh etc.??

  • seriously

    Because Katie’s exes aren’t desperate old has-beens like Brad’s CLEARLY are. Happy birthday, Katie!

  • NG

    Happy Birthday Katie! Hope 35 is a good year for you and Suri.

  • snooze

    she is such a bore. Go back to Ohio already. Tired of seeing pictures of you walking down the streets of NYC. Do you do anything else? Where is your little rug rat today?

  • NG

    In Hollywood there have aways been rumors of a notorious casting couch. Actress Kirstie Alley was once asked in an interview if it existed and she said yes. Under her marriage with Cruise, bet Katie had the protection or waiver under his umbrella only she had to submit to his Scientology beliefs. So I guess nothing is free. You have to pay the piper somewhere. If you ever watch the documentary Alec Baldwin made on HBO called Seduced and Abandoned if takes you on the journey a filmmaker goes through to find financing for their movie and all the unsavory wealthy money men who are the actual investors, and want to approve the actors, actresses in the movie. No wonder Katie’s parents worry for her in this extremely competitve industry that is the entertainment business. If anything, Katie should consider improving her appearance so she can also have a backup career like Jessica Alba who has made a nice lucrative business with her HONEST company that sells baby diapers and products. Same with Gyneth Paltrow with Goop and other products she is endorsing. Jessica Alba’s biggest movie was I think the Fastastic Four but she keeps the public’s interest by making appearances looking nice with her daughters and husband. Even Academy Award winner Halle Berry has lucrative endorsements with Revlon and other cosmetic companies. I don’t understand why Katie doesn’t try a little harder. She is 35 years old and has not had the breakout A LIST movie roles she dreamed of when she married Cruise. Good luck.

  • @NG

    you make some good points. Go back through the KH threads on this site alone and you will see that she makes little to no effort in her appearance. her hair is hardly brushed and she wears no make up . If she is trying for the “look at me I am so natural and down to earth” it isn’t working. It just makes her look lazy and messy since she can’t pull it off. She better do something soon because after 35 for a woman I think its going to be hard to pull something else out of the air. The Tom connection won’t last much longer. People are over it. She tried design but that was a joke. Was that her idea? yikes.

  • also @NG

    Maybe she’s just not that ambitious. She is set for life in terms of money, so maybe she’s just enjoying living in NY in a beautiful apartment and doing a movie here and there to say that she has a career. I agree that she’s not a big talent and that she did not earn the opportunities that she received. Pretending to be a designer bugs me to no end, but she’s otherwise fairly innocuous.

  • Dee

    Happy birthday Katie!

  • NG

    #10 – I think she is ambitious and that was part of the appeal of marrying Cruise, she thought that she would have a career like Nicole Kidman. It hasn’t happend for her yet, shich is why she should make an effort with the endorsements she got coming out of the marriage to Cruise to make $$$ and that will give her leverage to hold out for good acting roles while she hones in her acting craft because those endorsements will dry up when it comes to renegotiate them. I mean its a no brainer, Bobbie Brown handles the publicity so all she needs to do is have the discipline to groom herself before she goes out in public, same with Alterna, and the jewlery line, etc. In Hollywood and the fashion industry there is always someone younger and more beautiful right around the corner. I don’t think she is set for life. If you are talking about living like the middle class that might be the case so she should pack it up and move to Ohio and buy a home near her parents, but I do NOT think that is not what Katie wants. She wants to be an A LIST actress and living in New York is expensive. She’s leasing the apartment for $12,500 per month. She hasn’t bought property yet in New York because its very expensive. What I have noticed is Suri’s previous bulldog bodyguard was since escorting her out of school yesterday. Was that to take Suri to see Cruise or have they beefed up security? Who knows but all this cost $$$. IF Katie is worth $20 million (IF she’s worth that) that will go in living costs in New York in the next 10 years or less and she will only receive child support for Suri for 10 more years. Suri will be 8 years old in 4 months. By then Katie will be 45 years old. Unless you are Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winselt, Marisa Tomei, Julieanne Moore, etc., it will be harder to get acting roles and the cute girl next door role will be going to the up and coming starlet. Katie should smarten up.

  • NG

    The fashion line Holmes and Yang was probably stressful for Katie because she used to hang out with Victoria Beckman and she has a very successful fashion line. All the designers that befriended her when she was with Cruise deserted her during fashion week, Oscar de la Renta, Armani, Victoria Beckman, Dolce and Gabbana, etc. Its stressful when you take something on and you are in over your head. I think the one behind that fashion line was her partner Jeanne Yang and she needed Katie and Cruise to get her name on a fashion line. Jeanne Yang was a stylist this fashion line was a plus for her. But she needed Katie on board and Cruise’s money to launch the line. This line was NOT successful. I think it will fade away.

  • @NG

    NG in the other thread you posted about SC’s bodyguard. Where did you see this is it recent?

  • NG

    @14 – Here’s the link, scroll down to picture 7 and 8 and you will see the bodyguard picking up Suri from school along with her other security detail. And in picture 8 you will see the same bodyguard carry a very young Suri about 4 years ago.

  • NG
  • @NG

    thanks, so it seems K-homley didn’t walk her to school the today and let someone else do it. Don’t want to get hopes up she bought a clue and sees its best not to parade her and trying to think of ways to not get too much pap attention but I fear it probably had more to do with her doing something for her bday then doing what is best for the kid

  • NG

    Julianne Moore is 53 years old and looks GREAT, Cate Blanchet is in her 40′s so is Gywneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, Marisa Torei is 49, etc., but they all look GREAT and are talented at their game. Consider, film adds at least 10 pounds to your frame and we now have HD so you better be getting your facials, mositurizer, sleep, etc. Look at poor Kate Middleton who is only 31 years old, she went out with gray hairs to an event and every online celebrity rag reported that misstep. I really hope Katie wakes up and starts to take better care of herself. Most middle and lower social economic classes work hard for the money, she is right now in a privilieged position, hope she appreciates it.

  • @NG

    those other women not only look better but they can act ( well j-lo maybe not that great but the others). So k-homley has two strikes against her and it doesnt seem she is making progress at any of them. I will be shocked if she is even around much at all in 2 years time.
    Tom (like him or not) will be acting into his 70′s like newman

  • NG

    #19 – I agree about your comment. Although I think Jennifer Lopez did good acting in Out of Sight and Selena but the rest of her movies are not memorable just okay. The test in Hollywood comes when youth, beauty, and connections are not your main ticket and you actually have to rely on talent and your acting ability. I agree Cruise will be active in the entertainment business into his 70′s either as an actor or producer. He’s been around filmmaking over 25 years and its his great love. He has said this in many interviews and I think its true.

  • NG

    Also, Cruise is known to have connections with Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Jerry Bruckheimer, Will Smith, Steven Speilberg, etc. and although they may not be great friends they are businessmen and know that executive producing is where the big dollars (and risks) are. The one actor that is a good friend of Cruise but I don’t see as an entrepreneur is John Travolta. They are both actors, Scientologists, pilots, own airplanes, rumored to be gay, etc., but Travolta is NOT known to be a movie producer, unless he is using a different name. Cruise is a businessman.

  • so cute

    I never saw these videos from disney before. You can hear Suri yell out to her dad in one of them.

  • annie

    Happy birthday Katie.
    Next year will be a great year in so many ways, and 2015 even better.

    Maybe that security guy is taking Suri to her father, maybe he’s in NY. This guy was with them for a long time, and he is with Tom a lot. I doubt he’s part of the security Katie and Suri have now.
    She’s a beautiful looking little girl.
    You know Tom doesn’t pay for Suri that much, when you read about other celebs and how much they pay for their kids, or maybe it’s for their ex wives as well. But I have noticed that.
    Years ago it I read that Katie was worth 25 mill, so she must have more now.
    I also noticed that JJ attracts , people who like saying nasty things , or puting people down, much less of this goes on elsewhere.

  • annie

    Also, I think you are making a mistake about Holmes/ Yang, Nicole Richie , Lily Evangaline, Jen Garner, Rianna and a few other actresses were photographed,very recently in skirts, dresses, jackets from H/Y. But if it makes you happy, to disregard her long term involvement , in Bobbi Brown, Alterna, and H/Y, that’s your choice.
    She’s co owner in Alterna, you know that don’t you?
    You also realise that when you see these actresses that you mentioned above, you see them with different length hair a lot of the time at events , so people know , that is not their hair.
    And if you think that most of the time her hair doesn’t look amazing , you are either lying to you yourself, or trying to put .someone down.
    But again that’s your choice.
    Her hair is up, down, ponytail, windblown, in a bun, anything and everything… we all have our opinions
    .But you know lets keep it close to the real thing, because as one poster keeps on saying,” we don’t know if it’s fact or not”…..and since HY is still around, and seems to be picking up, or at least that’s what it looks like to me, it could be doing much better than you think.

  • http://justjared Just Saying

    the shine has returned to her smile since hanging around with the gal pal in this pic. Katie looks happy when she’s with this woman. Is she in love, if so, wouldn’t that help explain her indifference to her own grooming?

  • Hope springs eternal

    Waiting for the dark, evil, creepy, sinister role. I knows email it with those eyes and teeth

  • @25

    @25, lol are you suggesting her new love is a girl?
    @annie, my goodness you have been here for 6 years posting on KH and your love for her. I saw a few old threads and had to chuckle when I saw you posting the same things back then. You are fighting an uphill battle. Six year ago posters were saying the same things about her so its not just due to the TC divorce. Girl can’t act and isn’t a beauty at all. People in the press were just saying she was because she was dating/married to tc. If they say it over and over it won’t make the public believe it.
    Your point above about the other women with different hair– 1) even if it is fake at least they look groomed and most times KH does not 2) they may not look amazing in their candids but we don’t see them running around with no make up or unkept hair on a daily basis. Many have said recently and over the past few years KH looks as if she doesnt own a mirror.

  • ah tommy

    lool even as far back as 2002 when dating penny he was still talking about the pasta carbonero he makes. He must really like this stuff.

  • rubyz

    Don’t know whether she’s set for life; as others have said, that will depend on how she wants to live. If she wishes to continue living as she presently does, she’ll need coin, lots of it! WhatEVER. I can pretty much guarantee she will NEVER be A-list. That requires a great deal of talent, some of which is innate. She doesn’t have it, and even if she decided to take lessons, innate talent cannot be taught. Nice that she gave her kid the day off from a photo op. Funny how she can NOT be photographed for days … tells me that she does know how to move around under the radar, she just prefers not to: momma lights her daily photo ops.

  • @rubyz

    agreed. she doesn’t have the IT FACTOR and was only “Alist” due to Tom.

    and yes, I think Tom probably has suri because on other sites they had her going to school with just the bodyguard and no katie.
    so no walking in and out with her prop.

  • annie

    @ 27
    Oh I get it now, so silly of me, because I I’m slow…. I gather you’re saying, that the media only said nice things about Katie, because she was dating/ married to Tom, that’s why? ok
    I always thought her best compliments, from every direction were before Tom , but what do I know?
    And by the way , those rants of yours yesterday on the Tom and Brad thread were really interesting! Keep it up, you are so amusing.

    Hi Anne, how you going?

  • @annie??

    huh? lol sorry but I wasn’t on that thread at all (I assume you mean me because I wrote post 27 here).
    I stay away from anything Brad and/or angie around here.

    no idea what they said but pitty for you to learn there must be more who don’t think like you and you can’t say its all one person.

    and yes, the media gushing over kate when she was with tom – when we all know she looked like crap was fake as their photo ops.

  • sophia

    ok, whatever!

  • sophia

    silly twat!

  • sophia

    you are so lame pitty you!

  • sophia

    we know you look like crap!

  • sophia

    if you look the way you sound pitty you!

  • sophia

    you full of bull sh-t! pitty girl!

  • sophia

    katie is the best better than the rest hahahahaha!

  • rubyz

    #31 Yes, I’ve seen several pictures this week of Suri being dropped off/picked up at school by bodyguards. Didn’t make the connection that she is probably with Tom, but that makes sense. SO … Suri has been photographed more than her attention-seeking mother this week. Tells me pretty clearly, and should tell the rest of us, WHO the paps are really interested in. NOT KHo.

  • NG

    #41 – With the lawsuit going on about Cruise not seeing Suri for 110 days and his church of Scientology rule about cutting off suppressive people which would be Katie and Suri, the next best way to let the public know (and the tabloids from printing abandonment headlines if Cruise loses the case), would be to send the well photographed bodyguard to pick up Suri so this way it could at least appear that he is there to pick up Suri from school and make the switch from Katie’s guard to Cruise’s guard. I mean its been one year and 6 months (they split up June 2012) and this is the FIRST TIME we see Katie’s former bodyguard pick up Suri. If Katie’s father did fire the bodyguards when Katie made her surprise split maybe Katie didn’t want to be present when this bodyguard was scheduled to pick up Suri. He is holding a badge that they need to go in Avenues School building so he didn’t just show up. Since Cruise is picking up the tab for Suri’s education tuition he at least deserves to also have a card for one of his bodyguards.

  • NG

    This bodyguard didn’t have to be present when they picked up Suri, they could have made the switch at another area where the paparrazi are not hanging out, but I suspect we are going to start seeing this bodyguard more often.

  • annie

    Saw Katie kiss this security guy goodbye once, in a video clip, and Suri blowing him kisses. They seemed close, he was with them so much.
    I guess it’s not a big deal, but can’t see why Tom didn’t pick her up.
    Amazing , a mum takes her kid to school, the are aware of place and time, and it’s a photo op.
    Do you say the same thing about Jen Garner.
    Don’t think much of the Daily Mail reporting, but go to see pics, SJP is always walking the streets of NY with her daughters. Jessica Alba is always on twitter, instagram, showing her daughters. If that was Katie, oh my god. You people are very mean spirited actually.

    I’m really flattered that you find me interesting enough to go back, to see what I’ve written.
    Let you in on a little secret, NG, used to say the same things, on Tomkatcrazy, about 6-7 years ago, before Julie cleaned it up.
    What some say here, they have been saying for the same period of time, all over the place.
    The thing with JJ is, for some reason it doesn’t always bring out the nice in people, not just with Katie , but generally.
    I’ve said on numerous occasions, that I have followed Katie since DC, it’s not news, I also know a few people who come here are great NK fans, who post under different names, so you get to know a few things.
    I also very rarely go to other sites, to comment, see what’s around …yes and when I do I always use my name, which is not always the case here.
    Because I look at it this way, if you can tear someone you don’t know to pieces, then I can support them, you don’t them, I don’t know them.

  • @annie #69(72)

    don’t flatter yourself. I wasn’t looking for you I just noticed your names when looking at old threads…and had to laugh.

  • @rubyz

    The more I see how K-ho dresses the more I understand why Tom was so controlling.
    He has a problem with that for sure- but I don’t think it was as bad with NK or PC and I think the reason is partly because K-ho is so not together he and his team probably at first tried to help and then he got stronger and stronger.
    He is Alist and she is a mess. If you see how she was dressing like a slob then went to those really expensive designer clothes I think that might have been tom and his pr trying to make her look more “presentable” but even when told to wear more expensive stuff her taste was so horrid and and she ended up looking 50 plus.
    So not saying its good that Tom was controlling by any means (assuming he was) but seeing things from the other side I can imagine he was embarrassed by her at times. she just can’t pull herself together. Now she acts like a rebellious teenager and is back to dressing like a total slob at every chance she gets.

  • oldies but goodies

    Ok since I wasn’t posting here years ago I searched some old threads- they are good for a laugh! Funny how everyone was saying the same things about kho whether married to tom or divorced- girl just has no style of class/gravitas…whatever you want to call it.
    here is an old thread- and annie is there (waves to annie!!) being the kho supporter. lol
    but i thought it was interesting that although people noticed that katie arrives in a mercedes that she probably drove and then leaves in that suv of tom’s with blocked windows– no one seemed to notice if you look close at the reflection in rear view window you can see tom’s mom in the mercedes. hmm.
    Anyway- Tom’s mom is ill I think…last site i think was from tmz and she was pushed in a wheel chair so that answers the question as to why she isn’t seen as much lately. Tom is 50 and he is not the oldest kid so i assume him mother is well into her 80′s?? so yeah, maybe not in great health anymore but not as some suggested on one thread if she was a sp. (lol)

  • Dakota

    So what year did things go south for them and Katie started looking like she was miserable? 2009 or even before? so only 3 years of honeymoon phase?

  • annie

    You know what, I think you people are going to do me a favour, just by being who you are. When I see pics on here of other actresses, Katie mostly looks nicer, so you’ve got the floor , enjoy it.
    You are all here , same person, different names, saying the same old rubbish. ENJOY!

    Have a lovely Christmas Anne.
