THE gift that is the TomKat divorce keeps on giving in the glossies this week, with news not only has Tom Cruise moved on from his now ex-wife Katie Holmes, but apparently he's already got his next wife picked out! New Idea and Famous report that would be 27-year-old ''Scientology Princess'' Yolanda Pecoraro. ''Tom has paid for her courses,'' says Famous, ''including one called 'How To Start A Successful Marriage'.''
Katie is ''shocked'' New Idea quotes ''a pal'' as saying, but is getting on with her life too, as is evidenced by the accompanying pics of her reducing daughter Suri to tears by refusing to buy her a puppy. And also, if NW is to be believed, by heading out on a ''hot hook-up'' with ex-fiance Chris Klein. In a masterpiece of double entendre, the magazine that seems hell-bent on making itself the girly version of Ralph notes the pair were spotted together in New York recently. ''Chris slipped into Katie's … Chelsea apartment using a back service entrance …''.
Moving right along, with all the predictability of Tom Cruise finding another rent-a-bride, we see that just a week after the world was delighted to be horrified by Ten's ''dramality'' program The Shire, two of the stars, Sophie and Vernessa, are being splashed across magazine pages offering their take on life, the universe and everything.
''My next surgery is to get a Brazilian bum!'' Sophie tells NW, thankfully leaving out details on what that exactly is. Something to do with nuts, possibly. ''We've got fake lips, Botox, [fake] boobs, [fake] tans … [but] in the end we're real,'' Vernessa adds in Famous, echoing the ''judge not'' speech of Martin Luther King and proving why she is indeed a role model to women everywhere.
Speaking of which Women's Weekly has this month named their ''Six Of The Best'', the half-dozen women most admired out of everyone in this wide brown land. There's Carrie Bickmore, Jana Wendt, Leila McKinnon (spotted the pattern yet?) Bianca Spender, Kate Waterhouse and Kirstie Clements. Yep, of the six, five are media types - one of them arguably a complete unknown except to other media types - with designer Bianca the odd woman out. They're lovely people to be sure, but really? There's not a single artist, athlete or doctor we admire? What about Mary MacKillop? Quentin Bryce? Or Sophie from The Shire? If her pioneering work in the field of lip plumping isn't reason enough to be admired, what is?
