Katie Holmes

Woman of the Week: July 16, 2012

We don’t know what has gone on in her private life, but we do know this: She’s a tiger mom, fiercely protective of her six-year-old daughter. Less than two weeks after filing for divorce she got a settlement.  The super-speedy end to her marriage likely a way to shield her daughter from a drawn out media story. Since then, she’s been seen out on her own, and trying to give her little one as normal a life as possible after reportedly worrying about her indoctrination into Scientology. Nothing is easy about being one of the most talked about celebrity splits on the planet, with a little girl who’s now one of the most photographed in the world

But for handling it all with grace and courage, apparently motivated by the only thing that really matters, her daughter, and for revamping her image -- almost overnight -- from subservient wife to woman in charge Katie Holmes is the iVillage Woman of the Week.
