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.

Okay, we know we've made this observation before, but we can't resist running it back again as part of our ongoing Celebrity Look-Alikes feature. With mentally unstable actor Tom Cruise always in the news and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il back in the public eye, testing his nuclear weapons underground and whatnot, how could we deny our fans the chance to see the striking similarities for their own eyes.


Wild stuff. If only we could appoint Cruise president of North Korea and get rid of the real nutjob. After all, as actor Alec Baldwin eloquently stated last month, you don't see Scientology believers flying planes into the World Trade Center.

Katie Holmes Looking Good?

We thought the world was coming to an end when the Dustin Diamond sex tape surfaced. Actually, that's still the weirdest story of the year by far.

But the fact that Tom Cruise (right) has reportedly had a special day named in his honor in Japan is still pretty high up the list.

Cruisin' For a Bruisin'?

According to the Japan Memorial Day Association, Tom was awarded with his own day because of his love for, and close association with Japan.

Cruise's film, The Last Samurai, grossed $117 million more in Japan than it did in the U.S. The actor has paid more visits to the nation than any other major movie star and spends hours on end with fans in the country. Having an Asian-looking child, Suri Cruise, only enhances his appeal.

His tour of Japan last spring to promote Mission: Impossible III included a trip on the bullet train from Osaka to Tokyo, during which he had his photo taken with more than 100 fans. During that trip, Cruise told the press he wanted to shoot the next installment in the action series in Japan.

The Association noted that Cruise is the first Hollywood star to receive this honor. He is also one of the few A-list stars to get his ass fired, and one of a growing legion of seemingly intelligent people who buy into the crock that is Scientology. Has no one in Japan heard about Tom's crazy, brainwashed soon-to-be wife, Katie Holmes?

Who's next on Japan's list of honorees? We can't overlook the contributions a nude Britney Spears made to the Tokyo subway system, can we?

It seems that psycho Tom Cruise has a new mission these days -- helping his baby's mama reclaim her former hardbodied physique.

According to sources close to the couple, Tom has become "very concerned" about the appearance of Katie Holmes these days, and has become directly involved with Katie's workout regimen as a result.

Taking the Questions

According to sources, Tom is willing to jump on couches do whatever it takes so his bride-to-be "looks the best that she can walking next to him down the aisle."

In addition to joining her strenuous workout sessions, the insane one also makes sure that Katie's strict schedule goes without interruption. That means barking orders at her through a megaphone personally booking babysitters for the kids.

One of whom is Suri Cruise, that little Asian cutie.

Oprah may not be able to pump gas, but Katie can -- and she also pumps iron. Hard. She's actually really into it, and lamented the fact that she couldn't hit the weights while pregnant with Suri.

Since the birth of her daughter, Holmes is said to be hitting the weights at least 4-5 times a week, focusing on building muscle in her shoulders and back.

Katie has recruited the help of the Buff Brides fitness program to help squeeze into her sleek, form fitting strapless wedding gown. She's also enrolled in Scientology, though, so her judgment is highly questionable. Who knows what kind of cult these Buff Brides are.

Tom Cruise Quotes

I was feeling pressed in the interview with Matt Lauer. For me, my issue was really about child drugging. It's not like it is today, like people are really kind of openly talking about this.

I can't even articulate it, to be honest. That feeling, that connection. Just who she is and what she means to me.
