Enough already

OK, I'm convinced - Tom Cruise is the mole.

He's GOT to be the one leaking his own business to the paparazzi.

It's the only way to explain this.

I mean, I'm a self-admitted entertainment news junkie and all, but honestly, who CARES?

First of all, my issues with Tom go way back, (Yeah we go so far back that I can address him on a first-name basis.) to about a year ago when he did this.

I mean, just in general I have an extreme problem with men telling women anything about how to handle their bodies and women-related issues.

Until men have vaginas, I just really think their mouths should stay shut on that.

Of course, he finally came to his good senses and apologized recently.

But ever since he made those initial comments, he just rubbed me the wrong way. To me, he appears to have slowly evolved into something of a pathetic character, struggling to stay on top at any cost. And if that means saying stupid things or drawing attention to otherwise unimportant things, that's what he'll do.

And to me, this is just another one of his latest attempts.

Now, don't get me wrong, I don't hate Tom Cruise. In fact, I loved him in "Jerry Maguire." I just feel sorry for him and I think he needs to stop writing his own press releases and "leaking" them to media.

Come on Tom, we know it's you.

Donecia, I'm with you! No matter how many press releases Tom sends out, I think TomKat's reputation is beyond repair.

I have to say, I'm pretty dissapointed by these comments Ms. Pea. It seems that your comments about Tom are more personal than factual. I'm sure that he has his issues as do the rest of us, HOWEVER for you to say that he is "stuggling to stay on top at any cost," is rather mis-guided.

We are speaking about TOM CRUISE, America's Hearthrob. His last four films were ridicoulsy successful.(e.g. War of the Worlds-$234,277,056; Collateral-$100,003,492; Last Samurai-$111,110,575; and Mission Impossible III-$133,382,319, you can fact-check in any box-office polling)

I think its pretty safe to say that he isn't "struggling" at all. I just think your energy is pointed in the wrong direction. He made the comments, he apologized..get over it. Luv ya!

You may be on point with those figures and all, but my rant wasn't about how much he's bringing in financially. My rant was about his behavior which is out of control in my opinion and apparently I'm not the only one who feels this way - http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5698612. And all I'm saying is that I believe he's doing all this to get attention and stay in the press. Come on, you have to admit he doesn't have the star power he used to have. It's the natural process of an aging celeb. He's just choosing to fight his with poor, misguided PR performances and actions. Of course, that's just my opinion.
