Eight Holiday TV Movies That Should Air in 2016
Huffington Post - about 1 year
When December's shopping and baking are done and it's time to relax over cookies and TV, we usually turn to feature films like Elf or A Christmas Carol. We might even look for I Love Lucy or Honeymooners Yuletide episodes or check out the newest holiday specials. But television has been producing its own seasonal movies, hundreds of them, ever since the small screen was actually small. They run the gamut from brilliant to awful, but even some of the trashiest can be as sweet and comforting as cocoa on the first chilly night of the year. The problem is that so many new films materialize each year while older ones tend to disappear quickly. And unlike movies released in theaters, too few resurface on DVD, Hulu or Netflix. So I'm starting next year's Christmas list early. Here are eight holiday TV movies, in no special order, that I've enjoyed in the past and hope to see once more. They're only the first to occur to me, so I'm likely to make additional requests in the future. And ...

Why I'm Over 50 And Not Going To Take It Anymore
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When was the last time you saw a group of mid-life women dining out at a restaurant? Maybe they were at the table right next to you, but you never noticed them. If a woman in Los Angeles is single and over 50 the message the city gives her, both personally and professionally is, "Get out of town." As a woman in my 50s, walking down a city street, I feel invisible to almost any man walking past me. I've been that unseen woman over and over again. Friends have echoed this experience to me as well. Single? No one wants to date a midlife woman either. Check the world of Internet dating, where most men, no matter what their age, list themselves as only interested in women up to 44 years old. A friend turned 46 and wanted to try online dating. I told her the age range factoid and instructed her to, "Pick an age from 40 to 44. Then just do the math when they ask questions about your childhood."

Scientology Led To The Breakdown Of Tom Cruise's Marriages, Says Former Church Official
Huffington Post - over 4 years
If you date or marry Tom Cruise, you are effectively entering into a polygamist relationship with the actor and with David Miscavige, the leader of the Church of Scientology, according to a new report in Vanity Fair's October issue. It may not be a polygamist relationship in the literal sense, but Cruise's romantic contenders must also be approved by Miscavige, who is the actor's best friend. This odd love triangle is responsible for the breakdown of the 50-year-old actor's three marriages and other relationships, according to knowledgeable sources and former high-ranking Scientology officials. "It's not like you only have to please your husband -- you have to toe the line for all of Scientology," says Marc Headley, a former church member and executive producer of Golden Era Productions, the church's in-house studio. Marty Rathbun, the former Inspector General of the church's Religious Technology Center who left the organization in 2004 and is now its most vocal de ...

Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes wrap up speedy divorce
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
LOS ANGELES: Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise and actress Katie Holmes settled their divorce on Monday, taking less than two weeks to end a nearly six-year marriage that captivated the world and prompted questions about raising their daughter in the Church of Scientology. Mission: Impossible star Cruise, 50, married Holmes, 33, who first gained fame on television drama Dawson’s Creek, in a glamorous wedding in an Italian castle in November 2006. Suri was born about six months earlier. The couple and their young daughter became a favorite of celebrity magazines and seemed happy until late last month when Holmes filed for a divorce in New York. Her move surprised fans and even Cruise, who was in Iceland shooting a movie. Since then, the media have speculated that the pair differed on raising 6-year-old Suri as a Scientologist, although neither they nor their attorneys would comment on the matter. “The case has been settled and the agreement has be ...

Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce case has many unknowns
LATimes - over 4 years
For all the heavy media attention that has surrounded the Katie Holmes-Tom Cruise divorce over the last week, few solid details have emerged about the case itself. And legal experts said it could take some time for more information to emerge. Holmes filed for divorce in New York, and some legal experts said it would make sense for Cruise to file his own case in California, which is the couple's main residence. But so far, that appears not to have happened. Both sides have said little publicly about the split and whether any private negotiations are ongoing. Last week, one of Holmes' attorneys released a statement saying she has no plans to seek any type of emergency custody arrangement or spousal support. One of Cruise's attorneys, Bert Fields, told the BBC that Cruise is considering his own legal moves but was not specific. A source familiar with the divorce proceeding said Holmes is hoping to avoid a public fight and is not going to fight over money but is concerned about h ...

Attorneys for Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise have said the divorce case involving the two movie stars is still in its early stages. Earlier this week, one of Holmes' attorneys released a statement saying she has no plans to seek any type of emergency custody arrangement or spousal support. One of Cruise's attorneys, Bert Fields, told the BBC that Cruise is considering his own legal moves. Holmes filed for the divorce in New York. Fields said Cruise would also file papers, adding: "Tactically we can't say where Tom will file a divorce case." A source familiar with the divorce proceeding said Holmes is hoping to avoid a public fight and is not going to fight over money but is concerned about how the couple's 6-year-daughter Suri is raised. The source, who talked to The Times on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the case, said Scientology and what role it would play in the upbringing of the couple's daughter, Suri, was a key factor in the split.

Katie Holmes wants Tom Cruise divorce details kept private
LATimes - over 4 years
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes appear for now to be attempting to keep the details of their divorce private, despite the heavy media attention the case is receiving. Holmes filed for divorce in New York. Her attorney stressed in a statement Thursday that Holmes does not want details of the case made public and has not sought an emergency motion for child support and custody. Cruise's camp has also said little about the details of the case. It remains unclear if the divorce will be heard in New York or moved to California -- where the couple lives much of the time. Celebrities who have filed for divorce in California have been subject to media scrutiny because of public records law. Court documents recently detailed the property and assets changing hands during Kobe Bryant’s divorce proceedings. Before that, court papers revealed details about former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's divorce from Maria Shriver, including that Schwarzenegger did not want to pay spousal support to his w ...

Katie Holmes wants to keep Tom Cruise divorce case private
LATimes - over 4 years
Katie Holmes' attorney does not want to take her divorce case against Tom Cruise public and has not sought an emergency motion for child support and custody, her attorney said Thursday. Jonathan Wolfe, a New Jersey-based family law attorney, in a statement that there have been erroneous reports about Holmes' legal moves. "The reports about an emergent filing last Friday are incorrect. Other than her action for divorce, the only pending application filed by Ms. Holmes remains her request for an anonymous caption,” Wolfe said. PHOTOS: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes through the years The announcement means Holmes is not seeking an immediate resolution of those issues. It also means that the divorce and custody proceedings could still occur behind closed doors and even with a private judge. A source familiar with the divorce proceeding said Holmes is hoping to avoid a public fight and is not going to fight over money but is concerned about how the couple's 6-year-daughter Suri is ...

Scientology may not sway court on Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce
LATimes - over 4 years
Despite the large role Scientology is playing in the increasingly public Tom Cruise-Kate Holmes divorce drama, legal experts doubt it will play a deciding role in the terms of the final settlement. Mike Kelly, a Santa Monica divorce lawyer and former chairman of the American Bar Assn. custody committee, said a California court is unlikely to view Scientology any differently than another religion. Cruise, a prominent Scientology member, would generally be within his rights to raise Suri in his religion when in his care, he added. A source familiar with the case told The Times there is hope a settlement can be reached without a court battle. The source, who talked to The Times on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the case, said Scientology and what role it would play in the couple's daughter Suri's upbringing was a key factor in the split.

Tom Cruise stands to gain if Katie Holmes divorce moves to California
LATimes - over 4 years
It would likely be in Tom Cruise's interest to having his divorce proceedings with Katie Holmes moved from New York to California, legal experts said. The experts said California divorce tends to allow more public disclosure than New York. But California courts also tend to favor joint custody in which both parents get a voice on how children are raised. Lisa Helfend Meyer, a prominent Los Angeles family law attorney, said that as a result, it could make sense for Cruise’s legal team to seek a California hearing for the divorce case. PHOTOS: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes through the years Holmes and Cruise live most of the time in California, the experts said, and that generally determines where a case is heard. “There isn’t a snowball's chance in hell of this case remaining in New York,” said Mike Kelly, a Santa Monica divorce lawyer and former chairman of the American Bar custody committee. “You cannot shop jurisdictions in custody cases.” A source familiar with the case ...

Katie Holmes-Tom Cruise split focuses on custody, Scientology
LATimes - over 4 years
The impending divorce case between Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise is likely to center on the terms of custody for their daughter Suri, according to a source familiar with the case. Holmes filed court papers in New York. Neither she nor her attorneys have commented on the reasons for the split. Cruise was shooting a film in Iceland when the papers were filed.
