Did Tom Cruise Beg Katie Holmes to Delay Divorce Filing?

Tom Cruise couch Oprah
On May 23, 2005, Tom Cruise couldn’t contain his excitement over his relationship with actress Katie Holmes. (Harpo)

-Well, this is oddly fitting. I started at Dose in 2005, shortly after Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah‘s couch in an unhinged declaration of love for Katie Holmes. And now, the day that I’m leaving, the pair announce their split. Looks like the divorce is Katie’s call; Tom’s rep just released a statement saying he’s “deeply saddened.” She’s already filed for primary custody(!), and reportedly refused his pleas to wait six months before announcing the split. There’s no word what happened (just a few weeks ago he was giving mushy interviews about her during the Rock of Love promo tour, and she was spotted wearing her wedding ring just two days ago), but expect this to dominate covers for the rest of the summer.

-In happier celeb news, Adele is going to have a baby!

-This is the second time there’s been reports of Jennifer Lawrence flirting with John Mayer. No, Jen. Just…NO!

-Dear gawd, Miley Cyrus. WHAT are you wearing?!?

-The cops accused of leaking the photos of Rihanna following her assault by Chris Brown have escaped charges.

E.R. actress Parminder Nagra‘s divorce just turned nasty. Her ex claims she’s hiding some of her assets from him.

Kelly Osbourne says she got drunk on a plane earlier this week because she was upset about her brother.

Blake Lively continues to make us hate her by saying she eats cupcakes and doesn’t work out. She really needn’t try this hard.

Ann Curry confirmed that she’s leaving the Today Show in a teary speech yesterday morning. Now the rumours about Savannah Guthrie replacing her have been confirmed.

-Another day, another bust up between Alec Baldwin and a photog. Why all the aggression, Alec? I’m sure there are more effective techniques outlined in Jack-Off: How I Out-Negotiated My Greatest Opponent: Myself.

-Here’s our first (somewhat blurry) look at Charlize Theron with a shaved head.

Chevy Chase continues to be a beacon of light on the Community set. Oh, Pierce!

-I can barely believe this is happening, but George Clooney just took a really bad picture.

-Yikes! The guy who was dating Amy Winehouse when she died was just charged with two counts of rape.

Snoop was busted in a Norway airport yesterday after custom officials found 8 grams of weed on him.

-Now that she’s split from her longterm girlfriend, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are 100% dating, claims Us Weekly. I’m still not sure if I’m totally buying it. Of course, I thought the ‘he bought her a horse’ story was pure poop and it turned out to be true, so what do I know?

-Check out the red band trailer for The Man with the Iron Fists.

Lauryn Hill showed up to court today to answer charges of tax evasion.

Justin Bieber‘s diva is finally showing. He abruptly cut off an interview when he didn’t like the questions.

-I can’t think of a more fitting way to sign off than with this video of Channing Tatum and Jimmy Fallon in drag. Enjoy!

So Katy Perry, Robert Pattinson and Justin Bieber Walk Into a Bar…

-Random: Robert Pattinson, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez all partied at the Marmont Tuesday night before all piling into Bieber‘s minivan(!) and travelling together to David Arquette‘s club opening. That sentence is beyond brain blending…

-Congrats to Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, who are having twins. But was it their True Blood costar who spilled the beans?

-Talk about a rude awakening! Rihanna was evacutaed from her London hotel at 6 a.m. due to an elevator fire.

-Celebrity photographer/professional creepy dude Terry Richardson just posted a slew of new portraits of Lindsay Lohan wearing very little, but at least had the good sense to pull down the ones of her posing with a gun.

-I’ve got nothing against having a drink (or four) when flying, but it sounds like Kelly Osbourne might have taken it a bit too far recently.

-Despite reports, it really looks like Charlie Sheen‘s rep is telling the truth when he says the actor didn’t trash his hotel room last weekend.

-No surprise here: Jennifer Aniston‘s friends are denying those engagement rumours.

-Meanwhile, who knew Justin Theroux had all this goin’ on under his shirt? Yowza!

Jessica Simpson tweeted a photo of daughter Maxwell yesterday, and it’s pretty damn adorable.

-God bless Channing Tatum, who was somehow convinced to participate in a flash mob dance to “It’s Raining Men” for the Today Show.

-Meanwhile, I’m going to see Magic Mike tonight. It’d be totally wrong to bring a stack of singles to throw at the screen, right? I wanna make it rain!

-Speaking of preview screenings, I saw The Amazing Spider-Man last night. I liked Andrew Garfield just fine in The Social Network and Never Let Me Go, but lemme tell you, halfway through this film, you can actually feel yourself falling for this guy. He’s vulnerable yet tough (even before the spider bite), and oh so awkward. There’s a scene between him and Emma Stone where they’re adorably, clumsily planning a date, and I think the whole theatre was cringing/watching it through their fingers. Expect a lot of dumb plays on the word ‘amazing’ in the reviews, but it really did win me over. Meanwhile, here’s some goofy pics of Andrew playing basketball in NYC, and here is video of him and Emma answering fan questions.

Ke$ha continues to live up to our very, very low expectations by getting the words “Suck It” tattooed on her inner lip.

-Here are some more photos of Angelina Jolie on the set of Maleficent.

Matthew Fox looks totally cray in the new Alex Cross trailer.

A Smutty Good Time

-I managed to pop by Laineys SMUT Soiree Monday night, which was a blast. The turnout was huge this year (800 people!) and the gossip was as juicy as ever. Smut was served, dirt was dished, and blind items were (kinda) revealed. Celebrities in the crosshairs included Julia Roberts, John Travolta, Alexander Skarsgård, Chris Hemsworth, Halle Berry, Ben Affleck, Johnny Depp, Heidi Klum and Kim Kardashian (who Lainey hilariously refuses to refer to by name, instead calling her “Kanye West’s girlfriend.” That sounds about right.)

Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t just play a hero on film; she sprung into action when a woman fainted in front of her house.

-Meanwhile, Jena Malone is reportedly up for the part of Johanna in the Hunger Games sequel. I don’t hate that.

-Shocking report: Jason Lee gave his new kid a surprisingly not terrible name.

-Yikes! Rihanna bodyguard just punched a pap in London.

Blake Lively brought some serious va-va-voom to the Savages premiere.

-Elsewhere at the Savages premiere, John Travolta and Kelly Preston got all kissy-face on the red carpet. Um, ok then.

-Whoa, Reese Witherspoon‘s belly bump seemed to come out of nowhere!

-In honour of the anniversary of Michael Jackson‘s death, Beyonce penned a note about him for her website.

-I can’t stop staring at this photo of the reunited Spice Girls. Can. Not. Stop.

-Congrats to Zach Galifianakis, who just got engaged. Let’s hope he’s not planning to go to Vegas for the bachelor party.

Jennifer Aniston was spotted wearing a diamond, which has everyone talking about a possible engagement. Cue the endless ‘racing Brangelina to the altar’ tab covers…

Emily Blunt just revealed that George Clooney offered up his home for her wedding. Swoon!

-Is James Franco persuing Lovelace costar Amanda Seyfried?

-Poor Jon Hamm! He and his girlfriend were robbed during their recent stay in London.

Joe Manganiello‘s stripper moves are pure magic. If you look closely, you can see Kathie Lee‘s drool.

Adam Levine knows exactly what he’s doing. He got Minka Kelly to play his wife/baby mama in the new Maroon 5 video.
