Tom Cruise is getting special treatment from the Church of Scientology. Here are the rules, if you leave the church; you are never allowed to speak to anyone still a member. So, when Katie Holmes and Cruise divorced, she and their daughter Suri, both left the church, so he is supposed to not have contact with them. However, the church is bending the rules. Seriously? How thoughtful! But why does he get the special treatment? The church says because of his celebrity status, but they want it to be made clear that if he were a celebrity of lesser status, the rules would apply. Oh okay.

The feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj has gotten serious now; Barbara Walters has stepped in!

Walters went on to say that Mariah has hired extra security, because she doesn’t feel safe! Are you serious with this? Isn’t threatening someone’s life illegal? Minaj, if she is really doing this, needs fired and arrested!
