Contrary to reports that they were going to get hitched at George Clooney's Lake Como villa this month, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes will apparently be tying the knot next month, though Italy, in fact, will be the venue. According to Us Weekly (via MSNBC), the long-gestating wedding will not in fact be happening at the palatial villa Clooney owns, which you may remember from "Ocean's Twelve. "No weddings have taken place at [Clooney's] villa and no weddings are scheduled to take place there," says Clooney's rep.
But it seems that Katie and Tom "both want everything to be right," says an Us source. "They needed more time." In fact, Holmes' new BFF Victoria Beckham flew with her on Oct. 7 from Paris to Italy to lend a hand with the planning. Cruise's rep is "not denying" the new date or location, though he's done the same thing with every other date and location, all of which have turned out to be false.
Rock's Mama to Cracker Barrel: "Oh No You Didn't!"
Comedian Chris Rock's mother Rose is going to demonstrate today outside a Cracker Barrel restaurant in South Carolina after the wait staff, she says, ignored her – and she's roped in the Rev. Al Sharpton to help spread the word, report Rush & Molloy. Mrs. Rock alleges that she and her daughter – the only black people in the restaurant -- had been seated for more than 30 minutes in the Murrels Inlet, S.C. outpost of the popular chain and that no one took her order. The manager then tried to placate the pair with free meals, but, by then, says Mrs. Rock, whose various exploits are fictionalized on her son's sitcom "Everybody Hates Chris," "Neither of us wanted to eat." Cracker Barrel says it's investigating the matter and that it does not "tolerate any form of discrimination." Mrs. Rock plans to sue the chain with Sharpton's help.
