Though I can't profess to have too much interest in the inner workings of Hollywood, I found this article on Tom Cruise's former PR woman quite interesting. Evidently, she managed to keep his nutso Scientology beliefs out of the media by leveraging her considerable influence.

"With the bat of an eyelash, she'd withdraw the cooperation of her agency's other stars, refuse to cooperate on other stories or ban a publication from getting another star interview. (It took Premiere magazine several years to work itself back into her good graces after one tough "Mission: Impossible 2" story.)"

Now that she's gone, and Tom's sister is his spokeswoman, its funny to sit back and watch the Scientology stories rush forward. Its only a matter of time before a confirmed gay story actually comes out that they can't contain or threaten to sue into the stone age.

Whats more, the whole Katie Holmes PR stunt is just about the most outrageous thing I've seen in a long time, esp. Tom Cruise hopping up and down on Oprah's couch proclaiming how he loves the way women smell. Arg.
