Come on, people. We all enjoyed the joke of whether or not Suri Cruise existed while it lasted. But maybe it's time we left child and parents alone.

The question for some, however, is just who those parents are.

Comedian Carlos Mencia wonders, from Suri pics, if the child is of Asian descent.

"Tom is not the father. Jet Li had the baby with Katie. Katie and Jet Li had a baby. Or maybe it's really the alien baby, I don't know," he said. "I'm just saying, if my baby came out like that my father would be like, 'Hey you better get a test.'"

George Lopez made a similar joke.

"I'll wait for the test to come in, but it's a beautiful baby. Not theirs. I'm a Latino so we always struggle with which kids are ours."

Not everyone is as skeptical, however.

"It looks like both of its parents. Hello?? They are both gorgeous so the baby is incredibly beautiful," said Desperate Housewives actress Andrea Bowen.

And, as Marcia Cross has proven, Housewives know babies!

It's true, folks. As reported last night, Katie Couric presented the first-ever pictures of Suri Cruise to a national audience on the CBS Evening News.

In case you didn't tune in, however, have a look now:

Suri, Tom, Katie

In the Vanity Fair cover story, Katie Holmes talks about how "it's been heartbreaking" to see what's being said in the press about her family and her baby.

The Gossip hopes it didn't contribute to any motherly malaise. We were just curious to see the tyke. And she's adorable. Proud father, Tom Cruise, has proven that insanity really can pay off.

It looks like Suri Cruise is real after all.

Okay, we're not willing to concede that. Not by a long shot.

Celebrity Mom and Daughter

Nevertheless, a couple of superstar friends of the Gossip, the venerable x17online.com and pinkisthenewblog.com, are doing some of the most stellar investigative work we've seen in an attempt to debunk the Suri myth. We're not sure how in the heck they got these pics, or if they're even real, but it is our duty to bring them to you just the same. After all, Hollywood news and rumors are two of the three things we promise our readers.

UPDATE: Suri Cruise is REAL!

If you believe everything you read on the Internet, which The Gossip (by definition) pretty much as to, you'd know Hollywood's biggest star has been keeping his new baby daughter, Suri Cruise, under wraps because she's an alien, or may not even exist.

Baby Suri, not even four months old, is attracting the kind of snarky comments and speculation usually reserved for celebrities like Tori Spelling.

According to Australia's Herald-Sun and numerous other sources, there are even rumours that the young one's birth certificate is a fake and some of the celebrity friends who claim to have seen the baby are a bunch of damn liars.

That Suri hasn't yet been seen in photo form is just too much for celeb gossipites to bear! In response, Tom Cruise and rough looking fiancee Katie Holmes, the mother of Suri, if Suri is in fact real, have been forced to issue statements saying they won't be pressured into showing their offspring to the public before they're ready.

It's a sign of the ubiquity of celebrity fame. No topic is off-limits. No part of the personal is private. Thank God!

We're all on a first-name basis and follow everyone's lives, thighs, and highs. Yes, celebs are hotter than ever, with a new magazine, Famous, now on newsstands. In the latest issue, we can read about how Nicole Richie is starving and lonely, while Jennifer picked the wrong guy (again) and how Lindsay's life is ruined.

Again, Thank God!

But there's a nasty whiff of hypocrisy in Cruise and Holmes's response to the clamor of the media for baby pictures. Celebrities selling themselves and their families one minute then pleading for privacy the next seems a tad ridiculous, especially for TomKat, whose entire relationship has been acted out in glare of the spotlight.

After all that couch jumping, etc., it's no wonder people want the next episode of the TomKat soap opera and they want it now.

It's not just TomKat, to be fair. Britney Spears is pleading for people to remember she's a "real" person one minute, then making a TV show about her life the next. The worthless Ashlee Simpson is also finding out that the public will tolerate 1980s hair-dos and intolerably bad singing, but not hypocrisy.

The implausibly thin sister of the implausibly voluptuous Jessica Simpson appeared on the cover of Marie Claire claiming ordinary women should love their own bodies. This from a girl who's had a nose job and God knows how many additional plastic surgery procedures. And since when does a singer who was exposed as a lip-syncher on SNL get to tell anyone what to do. Skank.

We aren't perfect, of course, and don't expect our celebrities to be that way either. We like them better when they're a little tarnished, even. As Mel Gibson and countless others have shown, the standards of behavior we expect from many public figures is very high. You put yourself out there, now deal with it, for better or worse.

In other (possibly true) Cruise news, the Daily Star reports that Tom has extended an invitation to David and Victoria Beckham (a.k.a. Posh and Becks) to view Suri, but only under certain conditions. Seriously, this cannot get any weirder.

Cruise reportedly says that the couple, who are longing for a baby girl themselves, must not pick the baby up, take her picture or coo over her.

"David and Victoria are honoured that Tom and Katie have asked them along," a source tells the Daily Star. "However, they were a little shocked at the list of rules they'll have to follow. It will be difficult for Victoria, because she just loves babies and is trying for a daughter with David at the moment."

Cruise, as we all know, is a devout follower of Scientology, which does not allow cooing over babies as it may effect their development. Scientology's founder, L. Ron Hubbard, warned against exposing young children to noise and alleged that a child could become mentally unstable if exposed to too much attention.

Tom and Katie befriended the Beckhams at a football match last year. The former Spice Girl, who has three sons with soccer star David, reportedly gave Katie advice while she was pregnant. David and Victoria are planning to take a mini Real Madrid jersey for the baby. What a waste of money!

Both TMZ and the New York Post (listed in order of journalistic integrity) report that Suri Cruise may finally make her appearance in Vanity Fair.

Suri, Tom, Katie

That magazine's legendary sleuth, Graydon Carter, has apparently struck again as Vanity Fair nabbed the coveted first snaps of the still-possibly-fake baby of Tom Cruise and rough-looking fiancee Katie Holmes, who's now almost three-and-a-half months old if she actually exists. Which the exclusive T.H. Gossip Poll says is bull$h!t.

The pictures, according to the Post, were shot by Annie Leibovitz and will appear sometime in the fall, though there's no word on when the photo shoot might have taken place. Shockingly, neither Cruise nor the magazine had comment.

The news comes on the heels of a Cruise spokesman's insistence that the couple isn't reluctant to show off their baby. Just last week, Penelope Cruz became the latest celebrity witness to the child's existence. Tom's former fling later clammed up about it, however. Perhaps because it never happened? Vote in our poll and let us know what you think.

We're going on three and a half months since the supposed birth of Suri Cruise, and the shroud of secrecy has yet to be lifted.

No pictured have surfaced of the daughter of insane actor Tom Cruise and his younger, rough-looking fiancee Katie Holmes, allegedly brought into this cruel world April 18. Some celebrities claim to have seen her, but no one believes Leah Remini and/or Jada Pinkett Smith. Or that other chick named Cruz. Come on.

TomKat Leaving Manhattan Hotel

To some, this has become a holdout of staggering proportions. Some, T.H. Gossip included, have come to think of it as a conspiracy. Clearly, if you look at the results of our POLL (above, right), we're not the only ones.

The whereabouts of baby Suri has become so hotly debated that some columnists are calling her the Loch Ness Monster (right).

Just the same, TomKat insists that pics of Suri will be released shortly, according to a spokesman.

One rumor regarding the little one's absence from the public eye is that her photos didn't get high enough bids on the open market. Another is that her protective pop is worried about kidnapping threats. His spokesman is quick to deny that buzz, however, and even denies that Cruise is reluctant to show Suri at all.

"He hasn't been reluctant," spokesman Arnold Robinson said. "They will be making a decision to release the photographs [of Suri] shortly."

MSNBC asked whether the pics be released to a single or a select few media outlets, or whether it will be a general release.

"That's part of the decision they'll be making shortly," he said.

After stating late last week that she has seen Suri Cruise, Penelope Cruz has since done a complete 180 and is refusing to talk about the baby anymore.

"I'm not going to talk about that anymore. I answered that yesterday and I'm not going to talk about it in detail because I really protect the people that I love," Cruz said of Cruise.

Cradling Suri Cruise

Cruz, who dated Tom Cruise for three years following their horrendous film together (Vanilla Sky) said Thursday the supposed evil spawn of TomKat was not only real, but one of the most beautiful babies she'd ever seen in her whole life.

But in her most recent interview, Penelope called her outburst of Suri details a lapse in judgment, and refused additional comment.

"It's important to keep living life as an observer and not just feel like you're being the thing observed because then you start looking at yourself from the outside instead of really alert... I forget people are looking at me in a situation like that, like yesterday," she said.

She also forgets, apparently, that Suri is not real. Just look at the poll, people! The fans have spoken. Please vote (above, right) if you haven't already! Tell us what you think!

Move over Leah Remini.

Step aside, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Penelope Cruz Picture

Believe it or not, there's been another alleged Suri Cruise sighting.

Penelope Cruz, the 32-year-old Spanish actress who used to date Tom Cruise, says she, too, has laid eyes on his possibly fictitious baby daughter. Cruz did not offer many details of the meeting, but praised little Suri as a special baby.

"She's really beautiful. She's one of the most beautiful babies I've ever seen," the actress said in London, where she was attending the premiere of her new movie, Volver.

Suri was allegedly born to Cruise and his fiancee, Katie Holmes, in Los Angeles on April 18. She has yet to be seen in public, leading many to question whether she is even real.

The Spanish actress, who co-starred with Tom in 2001's absolutely awful Vanilla Sky, and also dated him for three years thereafter, wouldn't give any more details about the unveiling. Possibly because there is no baby, and Cruise is getting everyone he knows to lie for him -- even stooping so low as to beg his ex-girlfriend. But that's just the Gossip's humble opinion.

Again, we call upon the fans. Tell us what you believe in our poll (top right). Is Suri Cruise a farce, or just being protected by private parental units? This is your chance to weigh in. At the time of this blog, 335 of you have spoken... and the results speak volumes.

Does Suri Cruise actually exist, or is this all a well-orchestrated publicity stunt? Given the dearth of evidence to support a conspiracy, such as a bogus birth certificate and some very fake-looking pictures of alleged mom Katie Holmes, we are convinced there is no baby. But do fans across the nation share our opinion, or are we going out of our minds? That's precisely what the Gossip wanted to find out with our EXCLUSIVE POLL (above, right).

As of the time of this post, 231 of you have voted, with 58 PERCENT believing that there is no baby. If you have not cast your vote yet, please do so, as we can gauge the general population's opinion more accurately with a larger sample size! There appears to be widespread belief that this is all a hoax, or at least very suspicious.

Below is a sampling of some reader comments we've gotten re: Suri. Some of them may surprise you. Others may offend you. All are pretty much guaranteed to amuse you:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Suri?!? More like surreal! No way this kid exists." -- Amanda

"Wow, that picture looks totally fake... if she really WAS that big, then her stomach should be much lower. I know everyone carries differently but come one... also, there is no possible way to be wearing regular jeans when you are that big. Well, I suppose there is but it is SOOO uncomfortable." -- Teresa

"I believe she's real. Why she would stay hidden all this time is weird though." -- V

"There is no way that a woman's stomach can appear as Katie's does in this [sic] pix. It does not look real, and even though my teen tried to tell me, I am now convinced that Suri is fake also. Shame on TomKat if it's not true." -- Missy

"OK, well... I have actually believed that there really was a baby. But... either there was some doctring [sic] to this pic or that is a totally fake tummy. I've had 2 kids and all my friends have too, and I have NEVER seen something as freaky as that! lol" -- Katherine

"Here's the REAL question: which is more real - Suri Cruise or Ashlee Simpson's chin? At least we've seen a picture of Ashlee's chin." -- Allen

"I honestly believe that Suri Cruise is fake. I love Leah Remini but i think that Tomkat asked her to say that they saw her just so people wouldnt catch on to Suri not being real." -- CoJo

"I CAN'T WAIT TILL EITHER TOM OR KATIE COME CLEAN & TELL THE PUBLIC IT WAS ALL FOR PUBLICITY & THERE NEVER WAS ANY 'BABY'!!!" -- Barbara

"ya know - who cares - I was a huge Tom fan from the early 1980's - after he totally dissed Nicole Kiddman [sic], I could care less about him, who he is currently bedding nor his freaky alledged [sic] child - don't care!" -- DeeCee

"I don't get it - we criticize celebrities so often for being in the spotlight too much. Now, we have a loving couple choosing to keep their baby and private life private … and we make fun of them for it? What does that say about our society? Our need to be nosy?" -- Donna

"Suri is real and she's almost 8 months old; born last December, daddy unknown. Remember Katie got really big really quickly?! She was '3' months and looked like 8 -- and don't forget Katie is tall... tall women usually hide the bump well. And did anyone actually believe the whirlwind romance in the first place? But these guys are supposed to be actors -- you really think they could have done a better job -- stoopid heads! Neither of them have ever really struck me as mental giants -- which might explain why the bump kept changing size. The real question is... why did they bother in the first place? We'll see Suri when she's too old to tell the difference -- e.g. 'is this a 12 or a 16 month baby?'" -- Claire

We would love to post a picture of Suri Cruise here today, on this, the 100th day after she was supposedly born. But since she isn't real, you'll have to settle for an ordinary pic of plain ol' TomKat. Sorry! What is your opinion of the alleged baby? Is she real, or the total farce / PR stunt we believe her to be? Leave us a comment or vote in our poll (above).
