As is the case with most weddings, TomKat sealed its nuptials with a kiss.

Three long, awkward minutes later, Tom Cruise finally released his bride from his locked lips. Katie Holmes hasn't been heard from since.

Tom Cruise Fan

Ok, that's not true. But the ever-lasting make out session did inspire Good Morning America to think back to other well-known neckings. Here are a few:

MOST INFAMOUS KISS: Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley proved their love at the 1994 MTV Video Music Awards. Tongues were shown, bodies were groped, viewers lost their appetities for days. And the couple divorced two years later.

BIGGEST SURPRISE KISS: Adrian Brody tried to channel his inner sexual chocolate with Halle Berry at the 2003 Oscars. It was awkward.

BEST KISS-OFF: Without question, it's Britney Spears' recent dumping of Kevin Federline.

The only thing K-Fed should be be puckering up for these days is some alone time with memories of a time where people at least knew him as the husband of someone famous.

It's official: TomKat is a lawfully wedded psycho couple marital unit.

The crazy Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes exchanged vows Saturday in front of more than 150 guests at the Odescalchi Castle in Lake Bracciano, Italy.

Cameron and Tom

"The wedding was absolutely beautiful," says a guest.

Way to elaborate and enlighten us, "guest."

With thousands of fans, photographers and TV cameras watching from afar, Cruise and Holmes were joined by family - Katie's dad, Martin, walked her down the aisle - and a slew of celebrity pals, including Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, Brooke Shields and Chris Henchy, Victoria Beckham (below, right), Jennifer Lopez, Jim Carrey and alien life forms others.

The sunset ceremony was performed by a Scientology freak minister. The wedding party included Cruise's children, Isabella and Connor Cruise (below, left).

The best man was Cruise's best friend, David Miscavige, who happens to be the head of the Church of Scientology. Gulp. That's brainwashing, Holmes. Katie's sister, Nancy Blaylock, served as the matron of honor.

Initially, there were questions about whether Cruise and Holmes' marriage on Saturday was official - the Mayor of Bracciano, Italy, said the couple needed to have a civil ceremony in town in order to make it legal - Cruise's reps say TomKat took care of it beforehand.

"As is customary for couples marrying outside of the U.S., Cruise and Holmes officialized their marriage in Los Angeles prior to their departure for Italy," according to the statement.

Boooooooooooo!

For her "dream cult wedding," Holmes wore an off-the-shoulder Armani gown with an ivory silk train adorned in Valenciennes lace and Swarovski beaded crystal embroidery. She accessorized her gown with an ivory tulle floor-length veil and ivory silk shoes. Armani, which outfitted the entire event (save for Katie's $340 thong and trademark K-Mart casual wear, of course) also supplied the bride's champagne evening gown for the reception.

Saturday's wedding started on a damp note, with scattered rain throughout the morning. Holmes and 7-month-old daughter Suri Cruise were escorted into the castle under a cluster of green umbrellas. A little over an hour later, the groom was escorted from the Hassler hotel in Rome to Lake Bracciano 18 miles away. With the sun going down, candles lit up the perimeter of the 15th-century castle as limos carrying guests drove through the gates.

Believe it. Suri Cruise, the reclusive little Asian baby, made a surprise, rare public appearance with her mother, Katie Holmes, and her dad, Tom Cruise, at City Hall in Rome. She looks tired. Probably from watching Tom run around the house like a loon and jumping on furniture every day. The guy is straight up insane. Anyway, here are the Suri pics:

Curtain Call

TomKat is now making preparations to get married Saturday in Rome, after Katie's parents reportedly a hissy fit that the couple planned on getting hitched at a Scientology church. Amazing. We can't imagine why they'd object to her being brainwashed by a cult. Or buying a $340 thong. These things make perfect sense.

Tom Cruise is determined to give his children a normal life, even if his own is about as far from it as humanly possible.

Yes, it was just another Saturday, and another TomKat soccer game sighting in Hollywood.

Open Doors

Cruise and his soon-to-be wife, Katie Holmes, were seen at his daughter Isabella's soccer match, where Cruise was kind and accomodating to the hordes of paparazzi that follow his every move.

Never one to shy away from camera attention, the Scientology lover made sure that everyone got a shot of him with his baby's mama, and even helped one photographer restore his balance after accidently bumping into him.

After the media attention finally died down, Tom and Katie managed to suck. Down some iced coffee through straws, while watching one of the more boring spectator sports out there. Don't ever say he's not a good dad for enduring that snoozefest week after week!

If you thought the Scientology way of giving birth (no speaking!), you won't believe what those freaks do at weddings.

MSNBC is reporting that the wedding of TomKat is going to be conducted in the traditional style of the Scientology CULT "religion," with the groom addressed as the "Man" and the bride addressed as the "girl."

The Cruises

The name of the "girl" will not even be spoken, and she is only referred to as "girl" or "you" by the handler. Er, minister. Tom Cruise's name will be declared to all who attend, of course.

If the Cruise-Holmes wedding really turns out to be a Scientology ceremony -- as has been widely reported -- any feminists in attendance might be a tad miffed, to say the least. Even a cute, little, irate Suri Cruise might get up and leave!

So would Stephen Baldwin, no doubt, if he were invited. Which we are going to go out on a limb and guess that he's not.

The vows for a Scientology wedding are more than a tad strange. Quoting from the book "The Background Ministry, Ceremonies & Sermons of the Scientology Religion," MSNBC reports that the minister asks a bride:

And do you take
His fortune
At its prime and ebb
And seek
With him best fortune
For us all?
Do you?"

The minister then tells the groom:

Now, (Tom Cruise),
girls need clothes
And food and
Tender happiness and frills
A pan, a comb, perhaps a cat
All caprice if you will
But still
They need them.
Do you then
Provide?
Do you?

Do you, well, do you, do you? Huh? Eh? Eh? Answer! Good God. The staff at T.H. Gossip feels that Katie Holmes should take whatever dignity she has left and bolt for the door with Suri in tow. This Scientology crap is not only demeaning, it's just plain strange. Run for it -- girl!

Although October 26 marked Keith Urban's 39th birthday, the occasion was less than celebratory. Urban, who's been pulling a Nicole Richie (minus the whole starvation thing), spent the day in a treatment center for alcohol abuse. It's quite sad, and leaves many questioning the future prospects of Kurban.

Meanwhile, Keith's wife of four months, Nicole Kidman, also 39, dined at the Beverly Hills restaurant Matsuhisa, ordering sashimi along with a smattering of her Australian relatives.

Cameron and Tom

"It was a quiet dinner," says an observer of their one-hour meal. "Nicole seemed happy to be with her family."

And her friends: The night before, Kidman took her nephew (below) for dinner at the home of BFF and fellow Aussie Naomi Watts.

As for Urban, a source close to the singer says he may have HAD to go to rehab because of a condition in his prenup with Kidman, who shares two adopted children, Connor (below), 11, and Isabella, 13, with her ex-husband, Tom Cruise.

"Nicole's lawyer put this clause in to demonstrate to Tom that Keith's past problems wouldn't affect the kids," says the source.

Urban did a stint in rehab for cocaine addiction in 1998. Cruise was clearly worried about his instability and its impact on his children. For good reason, apparently.

Say what you will about TomKat, the craziness regarding their upcoming wedding, and the whole mystery surrounding Suri Cruise/Bjork. Tom Cruise has shown he's a caring father -- and while we're not about to heap credit on him for what he's supposed to be doing, he could be Bobby Brown. Remember that.

Viacom's chairman isn't finished with his former employee, Tom Cruise.

After dumping the couch-jumping, publicity-hogging, Scientology-preaching freak from Paramount Studios back in August, Sumner Redstone is going on the record in the December issue of Vanity Fair to explain his decision.

Tom and Family

"He was embarrassing the studio. And he was costing us a lot of money," the 83-year-old mouthy Viacom chief said, admitting it was his wife Paula, 47, who turned her him against Cruise.

"Paula, like women everywhere, had come to hate him. The truth of the matter is, I did listen to her," Redstone said. "His behavior was entirely unacceptable to Paula and to the rest of the world. He just didn't turn one [woman] off. He turned off all women, and a lot of men."

Redstone says that Cruise's off-color antics -- slamming psychiatry and ridiculing Brooke Shields on national television, firing his longtime publicist, Pat Kingsly, and mounting Oprah Winfrey's couch -- combined to orchestrate his professional demise.

"When did I decide [to fire him]? I don't know. When he was on the Today show? When he was jumping on a couch at Oprah, proclaiming his love for [Katie Holmes]? He changed his handler, you know, to his sister [LeAnne Devette] -- not a good idea."

Redstone estimates that Cruise's bizarre behavior cost Paramount more than $150 million on Mission: Impossible III -- the best picture of the three, in the old man's opinion, but the one that performed the poorest at the box office.

The experience, according to Redstone, is a good lesson for Hollywood:

"The explosion was good. It sent a message to the rest of the world that the time of the big star getting all this money is over. And it is! I would like to think that what I did, or what we did, has had a salutary effect on the rest of the industry."

Wow. Hope Suri Cruise isn't listening to this.

After a year and a half of anticipation, on October 20, friends and family of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise finally got what they have been waiting for: confirmation that Suri Cruise is not real a wedding invitation!

Us Weekly learned exclusively that guests were notified late in the day to be free the weekend of November 16-19. The couple's rep, Arnold Robinson, confirms the wedding will take place November 18 in Italy -- "All those details are correct," he said, adding that "proper security measures are being taken to keep the vows private."

Trying to Look Taller

The invites are just the latest detail scratched off the couple's "I do" to-do list. Italian designer Giorgio Armani has confirmed that he will create Katie Holmes' wedding dress.

"When I am asked by a friend to make a wedding wardrobe, it goes straight to my heart," Armani, who will also whip up Cruise's wedding wear, said. "It really is an honor to play a small role in that milestone moment."

Milestone? Give T.H. Gossip a break, George. Tom Cruise is marrying for the third time, it's really old hat by now.

In any case, it's been a long, strange trip for Holmes, 27, and Cruise, 44, who have been engaged since June 2005. For months now , Cruise's cursory answer to wedding-date questions was, "summer," then, as summer passed, "soon," but now it looks like everything is falling into place for TomKat.

Yay. We've received our invite and have penciled in the date. We may have to re-schedule a prior squash tournament, but these are the sacrifices we make for our friends.

T.H. Gossip has has learned that famed fashion designer Giorgio Armani has been asked to design Katie Holmes' wedding dress for her upcoming wedding in Italy.

T.H. Gossip is still waiting for its invitation to said nuptials, but we just changed addresses, so maybe it's lost in the postal system somewhere. You know how that goes. Along similar lines, Kristin Cavallari never writes back to our letters.

Tom and Cameron

In any case, for those who aren't aware, the lovely Ms. Holmes will, of course, be marrying that Scientology-spewing, couch-jumping freak, Tom Cruise.

"I can confirm that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have asked Giorgio Armani to design their official wedding attire for their upcoming marriage," a rep for the designer said.

The couple seem to be taking their love of all things Italian to the extreme. As we talked about yesterday, the couple recently changed their wedding plans to an undisclosed location in Italy.

The awesome TomKat wedding will take place in November.

Cruise and Holmes have been together for a year and a half and are parents to daughter Suri Curise, who is six months old today!

Happy Half Birthday, you little Asian cutie.

Contrary to reports that they were going to get hitched at George Clooney's Lake Como villa this month, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes will apparently be tying the knot next month -- although Italy will still be the venue.

According to Us Weekly, MSNBC, TMZ, and just about every other TomKat-loving source, the much-anticipated wedding will not in fact be happening at the palatial villa Clooney owns, which was prominently featured in his film Ocean's 12.

Taking the Questions

How do we know this? Because George Clooney will be banging so many chicks there in the next month, he can't afford to lend the place out. Or because his rep said so.

"No weddings have taken place at [Clooney's] villa and no weddings are scheduled to take place there," says Clooney's rep.

There you have it.

But it seems that Katie and Tom "both want everything to be right," says an Us Weekly source. "They needed more time."

In fact, Holmes' new BFF, Victoria Beckham, flew with her on October 7 from Paris to Italy to lend a helpful hand with her boobs some of the wedding planning.

Cruise's rep is "not denying" the new date or location, although he's done the same thing with every other date and location, all of which have turned out to be false. Suri Cruise had no comment. Nor did a prominent world leader and Tom Cruise look-alike.
