Secret Star Scientology Base Uncovered

TOM CRUISE spent weeks in the desert "shooting skeet" and studying Scientology scrolls at a top-secret California hideaway, The L.A. Times reports today in a fascinating investigation of the high profile cult. Among the juicier bits are reports that the staff was ordered to plant an "emergency meadow of wildflowers" one night so that Tom could run through it with his then-girlfriend, NICOLE KIDMAN. "'We were told that we needed to plant a field and that it was to help Tom impress Nicole,' said a former group member, who spent the night pulling up sod so the ground could be seeded in the morning." As creepy "Ripley's" TV host JACK PALANCE would say, "Believe IT! or NOT?" Read the full article here.

TomKat's NY Birthday Bash

Last Friday, The Almighty Tom treated KATIE HOLMES to a Noo Yawk shopping spree at yummy boutiques Barneys, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, Miu Miu, and Chloe for her 27th birthday before heading to toy emporium FAO Schwarz, which was, of course, closed to the non-believing masses by the time the Cruise contingent – consisting of Tom's parents, and his kids, CONNOR and ISABELLA – arrived around 9:30 p.m. The toy store was ready for them, People mag reports "festooned with balloons tied to small white tiger dolls and 7 foot-tall stuffed giraffes." But here's the best part: "The real show was put on by Tom and his pregnant fiancée, with both of them performing on top of the store's giant piano (remember TOM HANKS in "Big," anyone?). The couple were jumping, bouncing, trying to tickle out a tune on the ivories. At one point, Tom DID A HANDSTAND." Oh Tom, you fun-loving goof!

WEEKEND UPDATE: Free Willie! And the Tomkat fun just doesn't stop! The two were reportedly spotted Friday in Miami, chilling "Big Willie Style" with WILL SMITH and JADA PINKETT SMITH. The foursome schmoozed and partied all weekend at club "Snatch" and elsewhere before heading to Y-100's "Jingle Ball" Concert, where People mag reports, "After two songs, Will brought out his wife and their daughter WILLOW, 5, as well as CHERYL ROMERO, whom he described as a woman 'who had a tough time this year.' He handed her several gifts, then said, 'I have another Christmas present for you and the audience. I want to bring out someone who has never been to Miami before: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.'" Tomkat then greeted the cheering crowds and said, "I'd like to wish you all a happy holiday and Merry Christmas and just a great year." Yes, and don't forget to take your vitamins, folks!
