KATIE HOLMES
Katie & Suri Enjoy Some Fun In The Sun

Katie Holmes and Suri rang in the New Year in sunny Miami! Since they’re based in New York City, I’m sure the warm weather was a welcome change for both of them. Katie’s rocking her multicolored bikini. And I’m loving Suri’s polka dots- SO cute. Katie tweeted New Year’s Eve wishes out to everyone.

Happy New Year! May your 2014 be filled with love

Katie also posted a cute pic of what I’m assuming are her and Suri’s hands. Both mother and daughter seem to be doing well since Katie and Tom Cruise split. It’s great to see. Here’s to hoping these two have a great 2014!

KATIE HOLMES
Katie Does The School Run While Tom Cruise Settles Lawsuit

katie holmes & suri (1)

Katie Holmes is keeping things normal for Suri. Here she is doing the school run at the end of the day. I bet Suri was excited: today was the last day before a two-week break! Isn’t being a kid great? Katie was probably more relieved than anything. The news broke today that Tom Cruise settled his defamation lawsuit with Bauer Publishing, the owners of In Touch and Life & Style magazines, for claiming he abandoned Suri after his divorce from Katie. Bauer Publishing released the following statement:

“Bauer Publishing, as well as In Touch and Life & Style magazines, never intended to communicate that Tom Cruise had cut off all ties and abandoned his daughter, Suri, and regret if anyone drew that inference from anything they published.”

The details of the settlement are confidential. Tom was suing for $50 million. I wonder if he got any money or if he really just wanted the statement. I’m guessing the latter.

KATIE HOLMES
Ready To Rock At Z100’s Jingle Ball

Katie Holmes looks like she was ready to rock on the red carpet, didn’t she? She worked it at the Z100’s Jingle Ball in New York City. LOVE that top she’s wearing. Katie’s skirt is cute, too. Those shoes are sick, even if they look painful. Sometimes you have to pay the price for beauty!

I never would have imagined Katie at an event like this while she was married to Tom Cruise. She’s stepping out of her shell more and more now that they’ve divorced; it’s good to see. Suri looks SO much like her. I wonder what Suri thought of her outfit? I bet she approved.

KATIE HOLMES & SURI
Handling The NYC Deep Freeze

These pictures just go to show how little kids don’t care about the weather, including chilly temps. Katie Holmes was bundled up against the cold when she left their condo for a waiting car. I’m loving her coat. She was bundled up like most of us.

Suri, on the other hand, was spotted enjoying a popsicle while out and about with her nanny and bodyguard. A popsicle: can you believe it? We grown ups are reaching for hot things, but Suri looks like she’s enjoying her frozen treat. More power to her, I say- LOL.

SURI CRUISE
Heads Back to School

Adorable little Suri Cruise did not seem thrilled about going back to school this morning. Dressed in her uniform with the added flair of some heart-printed tights, Suri seemed glum New York City today.

Suri and her mom Katie Holmes recently returned from a long trip to South Africa. Hey, you can’t blame Suri for being in a bad mood — wouldn’t you rather be on vacation?

TOM CRUISE
Tom Admits One Reason Katie Holmes Filed For Divorce Was To Protect Suri From Scientology

And this is why so many celebs decide not to sue media outlets that publish outrageous stories about them. Parts of Tom Cruise’s deposition in his defamation lawsuit against the publisher of In Touch and Life & Style have been made public. When Tom was asked if Suri was still practicing Scientology (Katie Holmes left the church as part of her divorce), he said:

“I find that question offensive. … There is no need to protect my daughter from my religion.”

But asked whether Holmes left him in part for that reason, Cruise said, “that was one of the assertions, yes. … There are many other aspects to the divorce.”

Tom was also asked about not seeing Suri for 100 days while shooting movies abroad, saying it was “impossible” for him to visit in NYC while he was shooting overseas. Tom was even asked about missing her first day of school.

“If she had asked me to be there, I would have been there. I would have worked it out in any way I could.” He said he also couldn’t leave the “grueling” movie shoot when Holmes later suggested he come to New York in October, and other times the exes couldn’t work out scheduling for a visit.

“Things change and there is different agreements, like in any divorce, where you work out schedules,” he said. “It’s just a different set of circumstances. It certainly does not mean that I’ve abandoned my daughter.”

Something tells me it’s not going to matter to the publisher if they win or lose this case: the topics Tom is being forced to discuss are a gold mine of information. It’s unfortunate, though:Does it seem like he’s “abandoned” Suri to you?
