Why, Nicole? Why?
Tom Cruise's second wife, Nicole Kidman tells Ladies' Home Journal that she still loves her former husband and considers their divorce a "major shock."
"To me, he was just Tom, but to everybody else, he is huge. But he was lovely to me. And I loved him. I still love him," said Nic, who is rumored to be engaged to Keith Urban.
"I always knew the rug was going to be taken out from underneath me at some stage. I didn't think it was going to happen in the way it happened. I had seen my mother battle breast cancer, so I had a fear of my health being jeopardized – that was really where I was thinking mine would come. I knew I was going to get hit with something. But I think a divorce, and the demise of what your family is, is a little death in itself."
I cringed when I read that she still loves him. Ugh. This is the guy who dumped her days before their 10th anniversary so he wouldn't have to give her extra money as stipulated in their prenup. Then he released a statement saying something ominous like: Nicole knows why I'm divorcing her. And did I mention she was pregnant at the time? What a louse.
Meanwhile, I must say that I'm thrilled that Mission: Impossible 3 didn't make as much money as projected. It's time for Tom to take a time out from Hollywood.
