Tom chose Katie’s new best friend

They’ve got a grip on each other it seems
Tom Cruise has already had an impact on his new fianc?e Katie Holmes. He has recently hired a Scientology adviser ? a young women called Jessica who is paid to go everywhere with the 26-year-old actor. “Tom pays Jessica to ‘keep Katie on the path,'” an insider told the New York Daily News. “She goes everywhere with Katie — she’s never more than a quarter-step behind her. When you ask her who she is, she says, ‘I’m Katie’s best friend.’ She’s known her for six weeks!” Uhuh. Former friends of the Dawson?s Creek starlet are concerned for her sudden interest in Scientology. One insider said “She was such a sweet girl and now she’s just gone.” Others note she has an inability to remember how she met Tom, repeatedly stammering when faced with the question and then changing the subject. Bookies have given odds of 5/1 on the couple divorcing in 2006.

The joke’s on Tom
The four members of the camera crew that soaked Tom Cruise with water have all been released on bail. The group were arrested after playing a prank at the London premiere of War of the Worlds. Tom was walking the red-carpet when a journalist stuck a joke microphone in front of him. As the interview began, the microphone squirted the Hollywood star with water, resulting in a shocked reaction from Cruise. “That’s incredibly rude. I’m here giving you an interview and you do that, it’s incredibly rude.” The pranksters turned out to part of a new UK television show, a spokesman explaining: “The incident was for a new Channel 4 entertainment show, part of which involves playing comedy pranks on celebrities and on members of the public.? Clearly the joke didn?t appeal to Tom?s sense of humour.

Nicole?s red carpet fury
The red carpet wasn?t a happy place for Tom?s ex-wife Nicole Kidman last week either. While attending the New York premiere of her film Bewitched, Nicole lost composure when a photographer reportedly yelled and booed at her. While no one is sure what was said, reports suggest Kidman appeared upset, and said something like ?You’re the rudest. You’re finished here.? Hmm sounds familiar. She left the red carpet soon after. Poor Nicole, not only has she had to fend off questions about Tom?s curious behaviour, but she?s also had rumours abounding over a ?mystery man? in her life. Tabloids have reported that she?s been seen jogging with a “dark-haired, muscle-bound hunk called Mike?. A rep for the Aussie star finally pointed out that the supposed mystery man is really Nicole?s driver.
