It's officially TomKat

Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. Tom Cruise on their wedding today in Bracciano, Italy.

Apparently, there was no truth to earlier rumors that the Scientology ceremony would involve Tom and Katie wearing pointy hats and riding around on broomsticks.

Yes, we poke fun. But it's hard to take seriously a religion that was invented by an underpaid science fiction writer specifically as a money-making ploy.

(In case you haven't heard the story: Back in the late 1940s — the actual date remains the subject of some dispute — future Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard reportedly commented at a social gathering of fellow fantasy scribes, "If I started my own religion, I could make a million dollars." It may have been the only thing Hubbard was ever right about.)

No broomsticks?

I'm glad I tossed the invite.

So I guess Brooke Shields sat next to the Romulans at the reception.
