Katie Holmes Ready to Get Back to Work

Stay-at-home mom of a child that may or may not be real? You can forget about trying to pigeonhole Katie Holmes into that role!

Katie, 27, is tired of looking like a total wreck and keeping to herself in Telluride, Colo. According to Us Magazine, she's back in L.A. and ready to get back to work.

Anybody Got a Blunt?

On July 19, the actress held a meeting sans wackjob fiancee Tom Cruise with her agents in Beverly Hills to fire up the search for the perfect vehicle for her return to the acting world.

"She knows it's been too long. She doesn't want to give up her career for her new life," says a supposed friend of Katie's, who adds that Holmes has been reading scripts looking for an older, more mature role.

And, although she wants a hot career again, her family life won't have to suffer, says an insider close to the pair.

"She's still very much involved with Tom and pretending they have a the baby. But she does want to start working again soon," the source said.

Of course her family life won't suffer. Suri Cruise is a farce!
