No,, that’s not the sound of early fireworks. It’s your weekly celebrity headlines exploding.
In case you’re a week behind on entertainment news or just returned from a desolate island vacation without an Internet connection, let me break some news for ‘ya… KATIE HOLMES AND TOM CRUISE ARE DONESKI!
That’s right. Katie filed the divorce papers to initiate the termination of their marriage. What makes this news even more shocking is the fact that no one – including Tom – saw it coming. The actor is currently stationed in Iceland shooting a new sci-fi film and was reportedly completely blindsided by the news.
As a result of this breaking news, all other stories were overshadowed. One biggie this week was Adele’s new pregnancy and possibly and impending engagement. Congrats to her and her man Simon Konecki!
Also, Ann Curry gave her final performance as co-anchor on NBC’s “Today” show last week in a teary-eyed goodbye. Now everyone is speculating about her beef with Matt Lauer.
Other than that, it’s the usual chaos…
