Sometimes a retread is worth it

Newsflash: Holmes could cash in on wedding to Cruise.

Does this mean that the Scoop knows more than all the other speculating Internet sources -- or less? Because Defamer had this area covered circa the Treacly Proposal Era.

The details fluctuate as to how much she's getting (answer: not nearly enough, of course), and I don't find this account any more credible than others, but what I do find interesting is this:

If the marriage lasts longer than eleven years, the contract becomes void and California's community property law kicks in — giving Holmes half of Cruise's rather sizeable fortune.

What's spooky is what Scoop doesn't mention, in light of this new fact, but which a glance at IMDB can tell you: That surprise divorce between Nicole Kidman and the TomBot? Happened at just under 11 years.

There's something to make you sleep with the light on.

Not sure how to respond to this post aside from the guttural "Ewwww..." about all things Tom, followed by a compulsive body shiver. ;)

I have two theories:

1) Tom's love only lasts ten years or the microship implanted in his brain that allows him to fixate on one particular female only lasts ten years.

2) The wife-bot only lasts ten years. After that, the wife-bot is retired and the real woman is allowed to return to society. It's no coincidence that Nicole Kidman (who starred in the remake of The Stepford Wives) had a much better movie career AFTER she and Cruise divorced. The wife-bot theory also explains Katie's now glassy demeanor.

Pari: Thank you for capturing the visceral reaction so well; "compulsive body shiver," awesome.

MeiMei: OMG, theory #2 explains EVERYTHING.
