Where the hell has Dharma been for the last 10 years?

Evidently, practicing some serious Scientology.

Big-Time Movie Star

So it's no surprise that Jenna Elfman is shooting down reports that the marriage of her friend, Tom Cruise, is unstable.

"Honestly, they're happy," Elfman, 35, said of TomKat at Thursday's Healthy Child Healthy World benefit in Santa Monica.

"They have a great life and they love each other. For some reason, the media cannot experience that. They must put in things other than the simplicity of it."

Several recent tabloid stories have alleged that Katie Holmes has been living in a "prison-like" environment and that Cruise is pushing her hard to adopt his many spiritual beliefs.

Elfman, who attended the couple's lavish wedding in Italy in November, says such stories are pure crap.

"It's totally irrelevant, because it's so absolutely not that. It's hard to give a detailed explanation on something that's simple. Honestly, do any of you have a great boyfriend or girlfriend? It's not a big deal, right? You have fun hanging out, and you like talking and sharing your ideas. It's exciting. That's their relationship."

Cruise and Katie Holmes have been spending time in Louisiana lately while Katie films the comedy, Mad Money, with Queen Latifah and Diane Keaton.

Last week, they threw a first birthday party for daughter Suri Cruise at their Los Angeles home, welcoming many friends including Brooke Shields.

Jenna Elfman is herself seven months pregnant with her first child with husband Bodhi, 37, and tells People she's hoping the give birth naturally.

"Bodies have been giving birth for a really long time," she said. "I want to know what it's like to go through that process. I'm just going to be as focused and patient as I can be."

Well we're happy for her. Add Elfman to the list of random celebrities to defend Tom Cruise in the last few months. Leah Remini, you've got company.
