Kind of an oxymoron obgyn65. If the media left people alone, they wouldn't be enriching themselves at the expense of others and, frankly, that's the bulk of our media. Parasitic scumbags. Of course there's always an exception, a good guy buried amongst the liars and crooks. Just kinda hard to find these days........

The media attention was Katie's not-so-secret nuclear weapon against Tom's powerful friends in Clearwater, FL and Hemet, CA.

I just read today that Tom is 50! I had no idea. He still looks about 25 to me.

They became engaged at the Eiffel tower the same night my family and I were there. That's what's interesting to me about their marriage....anything else...not so much.

Hum this make take some work to turn the book into a movie. But I suppose if I make Katie a pioneering first woman on the submarine, who gets involved with a grizzled old submariner (that would be me) or maybe I should just be the producer. After they save the world they can retire early to a Hawaii and take up surfing.

I can use Nord's daughter as a consultant.

If this works out I'd like a supporting role. If nothing else, to get a trip to Hawaii. Oh, one more thing, bunnies would have to be part of the plot line.

Bunnies absolutely running around with bacon on their heads. How about the kind hearted (taking in stray cats etc) wife of the philandering submariner?

That should be pancakes on their heads. The rest sounds like the start of a classic, gothic southern novel. Works for me

I think they're doing screen tests of Suri for the role of the pancaked bunny.

I was going to have you hit him in the head with a coconut. But even better he gives up Katie for you because she doesn't want to retire early and instead want to stay in the navy.

Ok I just need to tie up a few lose ends and contact Katie's agent.

She should get child support ONLY...then, since she's the presumed "smarter" of the two she can now go out and support herself with her phenomenal acting skills. Or , she can do as so many, start "hunting" for her next "catch".
She knew he was into Scientology when she married him, if that is the issue for their divorce.We are assuming that her "ice is colder than his" from the religious perspective.This is analagous to people assuming that gays would make worse parents than so-called "straights",though it appears the divorce and domestic dispute / violence rates are higher in heterosexual relationships.......just food for unbiased thought.

In addition, I as perhaps 99.9 % of us have never lived a hour or a day with these 2 individuals so have NO freakin idea of the real relationship or issues.

I agree that she should only get child support.... but what surprised me was a lawyer I saw on TV last night.... she said that she thinks child support should be about $50K per month!!! It seems that the laws support the thinking that the child should live how the supporting parent lives...

SO, since he takes private jets anywhere he goes... his daughter should get private jets... since he shops at high end places, she should be able to shop at high end places.... etc. etc...


That seems a bit strange to me.... I would not support a law like that if it is true...
