Actress Katie Holmes has been spotted out and about in NYC this week with 6-year old Suri Cruise. Mom looks glum and Suri is surely missing her dad. Tom Cruise celebrated his 50th birthday on the 4th of July without them.
No one is talking but the media quotes the ever-reliable sources as saying that Mama Bear fled because Papa Bear wants Baby Bear to enroll in a Scientology boarding school. You don’t see Katie much without her daughter so we don’t see that happening.
This week Elle magazine released a sneak peek of their August issue featuring Katie Holmes just prior to the breakup. There is no denying that she loves the camera and the camera loves her back. Check the source link for glam photos. Source
This week a Florida court judge blasted Trayvon Martin killer George Zimmerman for manipulating the system, and stated that he had every intention of fleeing the country in order to avoid prosecution. Then he granted Zimmerman a $1 million bail.
That’s right. Zimmerman is a free man once again after being detained when authorities discovered that his wife was helping him hide $200,000 in online donations in order to fund his second passport. This time the judge mandated much tougher monitoring and restrictions but we still don’t get it. Source

We haven’t seen much of Tyler James Williams since Everybody Hates Chris ended in 2008. Disney Channel fans got to see him last month in Let it Shine. They may have been surprised to see the 19-year-old rap, and even more surprised to hear his deep voice.
If you didn’t catch Williams on Disney you can still see him in September when Go On debuts on NBC starring Matthew Perry. You can also check the source link for a video from Let it Shine. Source
