So if TC's spokeswhores deny it, it must be true!
Katie's got the baby blues and finally might be seeing the light! And of course Tom wants to make nice with Brooke Shields, because she was right all along! Stupid boy....
off of MSN:
Katie Pooh-Poohs 'Baby Blues'
May 22, 2006
Is Katie Holmes in need of a heaping, helping dose of vitamins? Turns out it took just a month for the inevitable stories to appear speculating whether the silently birthing baby mama of Tom "Psychiatry is a Pseudoscience" Cruise is feeling a little down in the dumps.
First up is the London Sun, which recently claimed that the publicly perma-grinning mom of the still under-wraps Suri is "constantly in tears" and "seems emotional and very tired," touching off "fears she has the baby blues."
"Katie told pals it's natural for new moms to experience strong emotions," a "friend" is quoted as telling the tab.
In Touch also wonders whether the "increasingly lonely" Holmes has the "baby blues," maintaining in its latest issue that since Suri's arrival on April 18, she's been "feeling unhappy with her body and unsettled in her new life."
"Katie keeps it together in front of Tom, but when he's gone, she loses it," a source alleges to the mag.
Of course, postpartum rumblings were pretty much a given from the moment Katie showed off what would become the most scrutinized belly in Hollywood history. Cruise, as we all remember (and would desperately like to forget), railed against Brooke Shields for using antidepressants following the birth of her daughter Rowan in 2003.
"When you talk about postpartum, you can take people today, women, and what you do is you use vitamins," the L. Ron Hubbard-loving star explained to Billy Bush one year ago this week. "There is a hormonal thing that is going on, scientifically, you can prove that. But when you talk about emotional, chemical imbalances in people, there is no science behind that. You can use vitamins to help a woman through those things."
But before you wallow in the warm-fuzzy embrace of schadenfreude -- or form a conspiracy theory that the nursing bra-flashing semi-retired starlet will be miraculously cured by some Scientology-recommended Flintstone chewables, keep in mind that Cruise's hard-working spokesman says the "baby blues" talk is so much hooey.
"Those reports are not true," his rep insists to MSN Entertainment. "Ms. Holmes is doing wonderfully."
The same can be said for Shields, who was all smiles on Saturday as she stepped out for lunch at the Ivy in Santa Monica, Calif., with daughter Grier, who was reportedly born on the same day and just down the hall from where Suri made her debut.
According to Star, Cruise is now trying to make peace with his Paxil-popping nemesis, and as a first step sent an "enormous" bouquet of flowers and a congratulatory missive after Grier's birth (Brooke's rep confirms the fragrant delivery).
"Tom is ready to bury the hatchet," an insider tells the tab. "Katie and Brooke gave birth on the same day, and that bond really touched Tom."
Mike Wallace, however, shouldn't expect any floral arrangements from Cruise in the near future. In a sit-down this week with "Access Hollywood," the venerable "60 Minutes" newsman took the tireless proselytizer to task for his stance against head-shrinking.
"Tom simply does not know what he's talking about," says Wallace, who recently revealed his longtime battle against depression. "Scientology is a different thing, and God bless him. But he doesn't know his tail from third base about depression, simple as that."
