Ladies Take Note: Why I Tip My Hat To Katie Holmes
Katie Holmes, who is a guest judge on Lifetime's upcoming "Project Runway All-Stars", looks devastatingly gorgeous on the cover of the current issue of Elle magazine. And despite this cover and interview having occurred months ago, the cover teaser - "Katie Holmes unleashes her sexy side... On Tom, Suri, and what she really wants" - couldn't be more current if it had been written five minutes ago. Coincidence? I think not.
Let this be a lesson to you, ladies. Never lay all your cards on the table. If you're unhappy in your relationship and you want out, be smart. Make plans. Figure it out ahead of time. Because, especially where children are involved, you can't afford to behave like you're powerless.
I don't know what caused Katie and Tom to break up. It's none of my business. But I tip my hat to Katie for displaying admirable intelligence thus far. And this cover? WOW. That's self-empowerment.
I know a woman, lets call her Lynn, who gave her live-in boyfriend of several years an ultimatum to get married. He said, "Buh-bye" and moved to CA. What does Lynn do? She laments via Facebook, OFTEN, posting things like the James Blunt song "Goodbye, My Lover." WTH? I'm not saying Lynn has to be on he cover of Elle. We were not all born with cheekbones that could cut glass. But she should be using social media to post pictures of herself having the time of her LIFE! Wild parties (hire some extras if you have to!) exotic locales (photoshop yourself into a scanned postcard if you can't drag your weepy hide off the couch!), a suggestive embrace with a handsome man (who cares if it's your cousin?).
Take a page from Ms. Holmes' book and take charge, sisters! Her husband may be a licensed pilot, but clearly she is the captain of her ship.
