Over the weekend, we saw actor Tom Cruise and his baby's mama, Katie Holmes, taking in a soccer match featuring his daughter, Isabella. Last night, Tom and his son, Connor, took in the Washington Redskins' opener in Landover, Md., along with Holmes.

It was a bit of business and pleasure, as Cruise, who was recently given the pink slip by Paramount, recently signed a deal with 'Skins owner Daniel Snyder, who will finance his production company. Here's TomKat and Connor, photographed on the sidelines last night:

Tom and Cameron

Despite all the hullabaloo over the recently-revealed Suri Cruise, Tom is showing that he's still a huge part of his other two children's life. Both Connor and Isabella were adopted by Tom and ex-wife Nicole Kidman. We applaud his efforts as a good family man. So why don't you just step off, Moby! N-n-n-nobody listens to techno!

While T.H. Gossip has taken plenty of shots at Cruise's insanity, we've never been accused of failing to give props when and where they are due. Some of our staff members have been accused of petit larceny, driving without insurance, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and urinating in public, but that's neither here nor there.

What a dick.

Techno music singer Moby has lashed out at Tom Cruise and his baby's mama, Katie Holmes, for putting their five-month-old daughter on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine, insisting they are using their baby as a publicity prop.

Carrying Suri Cruise

The family posed for a much-hyped 22-page spread in the October issue of the glossy publication, which was shot by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz under top-secret conditions. So secret that Suri Cruise had no idea what the hell was going on. Then again, she's five months old and wears a toupee. But no matter.

Here's what Moby had to say about Suri on his blog:

"Are you kidding me? Putting your child on the cover of Vanity Fair? Are they out of their minds? Using a child as a PR prop? Argh. In the grand scheme of things fame pales in comparison to family and child-rearing."

"I don't know Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, but I really cannot for a second fathom the mindset of parents who would sell pictures of their children and use their children to get better press coverage. I'm sorry, I try not to be too judgmental, but it's gross."

Well said, Moby. Well said. You may be a 40-year-old, hairless techno star (let's just let that sink in for a moment), and it may be your jealousy of Suri's hair talking... but you really hit the nail on the (bald) head with this one.

But.... what about me!?

Those were the words uttered recently by Tom Cruise's daughter, who is apparently distressed over the attention given to her half-sister, Suri Cruise. Okay, we have no idea if Isabella said that or is even resentful. Or how old she is. But what we do know is that Tom and his train-wreck fiancee / baby's momma, Katie Holmes, checked out Isabella's soccer game in West Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon.

Tired Suri

No word on if the team won, or if topless soccer mom Pamela Anderson was the opposing coach. Or, for that matter, whether Tom Cruise's buddy David Beckham (that dick) bothered to show up, or whether Isabella's mom, Nicole Kidman (she's hot), was in attendance. Or... wait for it... whether Suri's wig blew off in the wind. Oooooooga!

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.

Are we seeing a new Tom Cruise? For the sake of enjoyment and hilarity here at The Gossip, we certainly hope not.

First, however, Suri's pops signed a new production deals. And now? He's personally apologized to one-time friend and former nemesis, Brooke Shields. If you'lll recall, Cruise's wacky, very possible scientology mission began when he slammed the mother for using antidepressents.

We guess changes within a person are inevitable once your child's poo is bronzed.

On an appearance on the Tonight Show last night, Shields told Jay Leno that Cruise "came over to my house, and he gave me a heartfelt apology. And he apologized for bringing me into the whole thing and for everything that happened."

Brooke said she was "impressed," although failed to mention anything at all decent about Vanilla Sky.

So look at Cruise now, people. He's NOT making funny sexist comments. He IS making ammends. What's next?

Motivational posters touting his insanity?

Don't misunderstand the actor, however. He still feels the same way about drugs. According to his rep, Cruise "has not changed his position about antidepressants, which as evidenced by the black label warnings issued by the FDA on these types of drugs, are unhealthy."

Whatever. So is playing with alligators. But that hasn't stopped Beyonce.

Heralding the start of an unusual entrepreneurial relationship, Tom Cruise and his producing partner have joined forces with a new investment partnership that will fund the duo's production endeavors for the next two years.

Tom Cruise Winning

According to the Washington Post, the announcement comes less than a week after Viacom Inc. and its Paramount Pictures unit revealed they had ended negotiations to renew the studio's 14-year deal with the insane actor. Viacom chairman Sumner Redstone fired the nutjob last week, stating bluntly that Cruise had committed "creative suicide."

Paula Wagner, Cruise's colleague and production partner in Cruise/Wagner Productions, quickly countered that C/W was not planning to renew anyway, and planned to seek other options, including a deal with hedge funds to provide about $100 million in financing.

Their new deal is with Daniel Snyder (the inept owner of the Washington Redskins), Dwight Schar (chairman of homebuilder NVR Inc.) and Mark Shapiro (President and CEO of Six Flags). Snyder, Schar and Shapiro have formed an investment partnership, First and Goal LLC.

The newly-founded corporation, which should be called Fourth and 17 LLC, in honor of the Redskins, will invest in C/W, providing the actor and his backers with development and overhead funds under a two-year deal with the option to renew long term.

"Dan Snyder and Mark Shapiro are proven winners. Paula and I look forward to many mutual successes," Cruise.

Once again, Cruise proves he's out to lunch. Proven winners? The Redskins suck! Wow, one winning season since 1999 after signing every free agent imaginable. Congratulations, Daniel Snyder. Apparently producing one winner every six movies is satisfactory for Cruise going forward. Hope he, his disheveled fiancee and fake daughter are happy.

Tom Cruise was bashed (newsworthy, we know) last week in Australia, where he was named winner of the "Celebrity Ernie Award" for a supposedly sexist comment that award organizers claim he made. Only he didn't.

The comment in question, which was allegedly made when fiancée Katie Holmes was pregnant with their possibly-fake daughter, Suri Cruise (now between three and four months old if she is in fact alive):

"I've got Katie tucked away so no one will get to us until my child is born," Cruise said (no, he didn't).

The quote was named "worst derogatory public statement" by nearly 400 of Australia's most powerful women who gathered in the New South Wales state parliament last week. But according to Cruise's rep, the actor, who was in the news last week after being fired by Paramount, did not utter those words or make any such remarks to that effect.

"The comments that they have attributed to him are completely fabricated," his representative said. "Anyone who knows him knows that he is a complete gentleman and would never ever say such a thing... He has the utmost respect for women."

Research shows that, indeed, Cruise never made such a statement.

"His mother, his sisters, Kate and his children are the most important things in the world to him. Women have always played a positive and important role in who he is," his rep added.

How nice that TomKat respects women. The Ernie Awards, now in their 14th year, were named after a trade union leader called Ernie whose union members included sheep shearers. He once said: "Women aren't welcome in the shearing sheds. They're only after the sex."

We've seen the motivational words of Kate Bosworth, Lindsay Lohan et al., and found ourselves deeply touched by their wisdom. But these two ultra-thin vixens aren't the only celebs with inspiring stories from which our souls can derive strength.

While getting the pink slip from your movie company after pissing off the boss' wife doesn't make for a good week, you won't see any hangdog expressions on Tom Cruise. Oh no. Behold, Tom in all his glory, his relentless energy and indomitable shining through in spite of his obvious mental handicap. It's really quite moving.

Not His Best Look

Tom Cruise clearly displeased Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone enough to get his ass axed this week, but he evidently also committed one of the biggest cardinal sins for any employee -- pissing off the boss' wife!

According to TMZ.com, Paula Fortunato was incensed over one of Cruise's many rants, telling her honcho husband that the actor is a "putz," and that she intended on boycotting Cruise's projects.

Indeed, the New York Post notes, one of Redstone's justifications for severing ties with the Scientology obsessed star was that his behavior had alienated female fans. One of those fans, evidently, was Fortunato, a former teacher almost 40 years Redstone's junior who married the mogul in 2003.

She was outraged by Cruise's inexplicable digs at Brooke Shields, and told her husband that she would never "see another Tom Cruise movie again!"

Cruise has received some support, however, from what might seem an unlikely source -- Matt Lauer. Despite his personal association with of Tom's famous rants, the Today host came to Cruise's defense this week, saying his views aren't justification for his dismissal.

"You know what, I have to say something. You talk about erratic behavior and things like that affecting the box-office and yes maybe he jumped on a couch, and I was in the middle of one of those episodes here on the Today show and maybe he speaks out about Scientology and some people don't like that," Lauer said. "But what about the stars who are in and out of rehab every week? Is that any worse? And yet you find movie companies still in business with them. So, this is all a strange world we live in."

We've come across some pics of the newly-unemployed Tom Cruise and brainwashed, formerly hot fiancee Katie Holmes from their recent outing to Maestro's steakhouse. Nice work to whoever shot these... but you might want to turn the red-eye reduction feature on next time. Just a tip from the Gossip's photo editor.

That's not all. We've also come across some images from the InStyle party recently attended by Holmes... and her Scientology handler. Not clear if the handler is pictured here... but Holmes is. And she doesn't look good. Somebody save Katie!
