Katie Holmes Appears To be More Interested In Photo Ops Than Suri’s Misery

There are no photos more heartbreaking than seeing a child fearing a little innocent puppy. Katie Holmes has been parading little  Suri around  NY like a show  pony to show how much better off Suri is now that Tom is out of the picture and to show what a great mother she is. Well, she is NOT a great mother in my view. She is using little Suri for photo ops and it is sickening.  Every single day Suri has been paraded in front of the paparazzi and there is no doubt that she and or her PR flaks are setting up where and when to shoot the photos.

Let me let you in on a little secret. Paparazzi are not on every street corner in NYC or in LA waiting for a celebrity to make their next move so they can take photos to be placed in a magazine on on an internet site. While the papps may be at certain hangouts stars frequent like Mr.Chows,  Spago, or at a specific celebrity function, or at 435 N. Bedford Drive Medical Office Building or nail salon or eyebrow waxing place in Beverly Hills,   if you see them  at a park with they children or  at the zoo, or at a pet store you can rest assured that the celebrity or the celebrity’s PR person called the papps to tell them where the celebrity will be and what time they will be there. That is why you are seeing Katie and Suri everyday in  so many photo ops doing different things. Do you really think that the papps hang out in pet shops waiting for a celeb? Of course not!

And besides,  Katie has an underground  garage (remember that is the reason she gave Tom as to why she wanted to move there). So if  she didnt want to be noticed all she had to do was get into her  car with tinted windows in her private property underground garage where no one would see her. But she wants to be seen and it is obvious.

In essence she is thumbing up her nose at Tom and saying “Nya nya nya nya nya , Suri and I are happy without you, so there”!) But the truth is Suri is absolutely miserable and horribly unhappy based on her body language. In fact Suri is even more miserable than she was when Tom was in the picture.

Most recently Suri was dragged to a pet shop. It is obvious that this child has not been around a lot of animals as she was absolutely petrified . She was in terror of the little puppy. If Katie gets her the puppy it will be a cruel thing to do to Suri and an even crueler thing to do to the puppy.

Suri is obviously frightened in the pet shop but her mother is doing nothing to comfort her. She does’t even take the little girl’s hand to let her know everything will be OK. Instead, she ignores Suri and her feelings.

Here precious Suri is panic stricken in the pet store. She looks as if she is about to burst into tears any second. Is there anyone there to comfort her? NO! Look at her hands, She is wringing her hands with anxiety and worry. If Katie is so concerned about Suri, she needed to be there at this exact moment to address Suri’s fears.

Suri can’t even look at the puppy she is so terrified. No doubt, this is the first time she was ever in a pet store with all it’s strange smells and animals in cages.She is holding her hands in front of her  showing she is feeling very vulnerable body language wise. Now her lips are turned down and she looks like she is ready to cry.  Now is the time Katie needs to be bending down to comfort her,not below for the photo op the next day.

Katie is all smiles but it is all for show. Look how much physical distance there is between her and and Suri. Suri looks miserable. She is clearly unhappy. When two people in a  photo have such mismatching facial expressions, rest assured that something is wrong and the photo is contrived. Suri had hunched shoulders, something we NEVER saw when Tom was int he picture. She is feeling vulnerable and sad. Her self esteem is suffering based on her body posture.

While Katie does have a bigger smile on her face and now shows her teeth in photos (something she never did with Tom) and wears more casual youthful  and colorful clothing, seeing her in the press each day indicates that she is trying very hard to make a point.

Katie can certainly get one of her six to eight body guards to discretely pick up some ice cream and a cup of coffee for her. She doesn’t need to be photographed getting these things unless she wants to be photographed.And she desperately wants to be photographed with Suri as a prop.

While Katie shows off her smiles, her prop-  little Suri still looks miserable. The only smiling photo of her was at the zoo, while looking at an animal. But when she stopped looking at the animal she was her usual sourpuss self.

Each day Katie has put Suri in the news engaged in different activities. Since Katie apparently spent so much time with Suri in the past, why wasn’t she doing these things with Suri earlier? In one week Suri has been photographed looking

miserable at the zoo

miserable eating ice cream

miserable doing gymnastics at Chelsea Piers

miserable going to the Children’s Museum

and completely miserable on play dates with children to whom she cannot relate.

While Katie wants to show that now that Tom is not around, Suri is a normal child playing with another children. But that is not the case. Since Suri has never had a lot of little friends her age with whom to socialize and since she has been isolated in her formative years, it is very hard for her to relate to other children.

Apparently,  she has been treated like a little adult and not a child according to reports. She allegedly has been raised to do whatever she wants. That won’t cut it when she interacts with another child. There has to be a give and a take. Clearly this is not happening with the other children as you can see in these photos.

She ignores the other children. There are no smiles and no interaction.Suri could care less about her new friend(s). Her body language shows she is completely disinterested.

In fact, she so disliked being around one of her new playmates (an older Asian girl) who was as equally not responsive to her, that Suri reverted to a toddler and demanded her mother pick her up and carry her. Katie obliged.

Most six year olds don’t act like that. Thy don’t want to be a baby and be carried around unless there is something wrong with them emotionally. They want to show they are big girls and boys as they assert their independence and walk by themselves.

If Suri hasn’t had much contact with other children she will have a miserable time at school where other children will be forced upon her.

Also her teachers will definitely not be treating her like a little adult but as a child. Suri will also not get her way all the time. If she doesn’t want to do something that is required of her, she will no doubt be punished . Her permissive upbringing of doing whatever she likes will not work now that she is away from Tom. This will all be foreign to her and highly distressing. I would not be surprised if she acted out as a result.

Going to a strict Catholic school may be a rude awakening for her as she never had any discipline. She was never told “No” that she could not do whatever she wanted. No doubt, her classmates will have had this type structure in their lives which makes them easier to handle. Suri will be like a fish out of water. It will be a shock to her going to a Catholic school which is full of structure and discipline. Because her personality and habits are already formed (we all are by the time we are 5 years old according to Gessel Child Development) she will be even more miserable.

Suri was groomed to go to a Scientology school since she was a toddler and like it or nor, she would probably do much better there in my view than she will in a very structured Catholic  school environment.  The die has already been cast and it will be difficult to transform  the  early values and ideas that have been instilled in her and that are now a part of her.

Suri appears to be very insecure and very needy and very immature for her age with her insisting that she be carried like a baby and holding on to her blanket and her favorite stuffed animal. While it is acceptable for a toddler and a for a four year old, it is not acceptable for a six year old. There is something wrong with a child who can’t leave the house at that age without something to pacify them.

With a reported six to eight  strange body guards around her at all times how could this child not feel insecure and uncomfortable? At least she gre up with her Scientology body guards and feels more secure around them.

Since Katie and Tom are so diametrically opposed to the way they believe in raising child, Suri will no doubt go through additional stress when she is with Katie and  then when she visits her father, who will treat her  the complete opposite  of Katie.

I believe that Suri will suffer emotionally. It shows already. She may need a child psychologist help her cope with her stress, especially as she goes to school and if she begins to act out.

If she did see a child therapist, which she may very well need, rest assured that her father will be furious since Scientologists don’t believe in or respect therapists. Heaven forbid if the therapist recommends ritalin or some other medication for Suri. Remember how vehemently Tom reacted to Matt Lauer when they discussed children being on medication during their infamous Today Show interview where he put Brooke Shields down for needing meds dring her post partum depression? It would certainly be ironic if Tom’s own daughter Suri ended up on medication to help her.

Since Katie has full custody, Katie has full say in what is best for Suri, which may very well include medication if needed.

It is so sad that Suri is now having and will most likely continue to have a hard time adjusting to her new life.. It shows in her body language.

She has a lot of catching up to do in terms of learning to be disciplined and in terms of her social interaction in her upcoming environment. My only hope is that Katie worries less about her own image and photo ops in her desire to  let the world know how well she is doing without Tom, and instead focuses on Suri’s major issues.

The bottom line is that Suri looks miserable as we can all see. Her miserable look is not based on a few photos. It is based on all her photos. This is not a happy child. At 6 years old,  a child needs to be happy.  They need to laugh and smile most of the time. She is clearly not happy being paraded around every day and having the papps shoot her photos. There  also seems to be a lot of tension between her and Katie.  Perhaps a visit from her dad would be a welcoming site and bring the smile she so desperately needs to her face.

  1. Katie needs to stop parading Suri for the cameras – there are a ton of photos of Suri appearing tormented by the pap… If Katie was such a ‘great mom’ she would really let her child have a childhood – in a town somewhere where there is not constant media.


    1. First of all Katie took Suri to get a puppy and secondly the girl looks terrified. She doesnt even look at the puppy. She shrinks back and wings her hands in fear. Even if it was true Katie, is not comforting her when she needs to be comforted the most . You missed the whole point of the blog in you vehemence and hatred Ellen Mitchel. Katie is USING Suri for PR photo ops! The child looks miserable being dragged around with body guards and papps in tow.


      1. Elena Mitchell, actually. Although I have no idea of what Katie Holmes is doing. But allowing a six year old child to do as she pleases was never a good idea. Suri has become a spoilt brat, although how this marries with Scientology which appears to brain wash anyone who becomes involved is a bit beyond me. But chacun est son gout if this is what you want for your children. I didn’t, and nor apparently did katie Holmes.
        Personally, I don’t care, but please don’t use photographs of a spoilt brat to suggest that her mother doesn’t care.


  2. I think it is true that little Suri has been raised in a completely unreal and unnatural environment and we are now seeing the result. The fact of the matter is that Suri will have to engage and be able to interact with other human beings, other than her scientologist handlers, long after she is a spoiled child and Tom and Katie are no longer big news. Katie obviously and finally saw what this was doing to her daughter, no doubt Katie’s parents saw it, too, and realized that Suri was young enough to be helped to perhaps live a normal life. She has been like a caged animal, so it is not unusual that she reacts to the real world and real people (kids) as if they were completely foreign to her understanding of the world. I give Katie tons of credit for attempting to give her daughter a genuine existance — instead of being the pampered, weird little spawn of the scientologists front man.


  3. Maybe , she is just a spoiled hollywood brat , with Daddy’s explosive temper. Tom and Katie have made big money with her pics and dressing her up for the camera since she was born. Tom bragged on Opra she had a million dollar wardrobe paid for by advertisers .


    1. I’m sure she’s a spoiled brat, but it isn’t too late for her. They dressed her up and pimped her out to the cameras whenever they could. I’m hoping Katie saw a glimpse into the future, maybe saw what might happen to Suri down the road via the Sinos and just, ya know, life, and decided to get her the hell out of that situation.


  4. Excellent blog and your points are well taken. I keep thinking, “Why is this little girl being paraded around in front of all of the cameras?”

    Your use of the word “prop”, sadly, is right on.

    I do feel a law should be created to protect children of celebrities from having their photos splashed all over the papers and tabloids.

    Is it going to take a tragedy before this law happens?

    Thanks again for your insight and perspective.


  5. I don’t see Suri as terrified, but as a spoiled brat who is not getting her way, probably for the first time in her life. She doesn’t look afraid of the puppy to me, but more like, ‘that is not the one I want, I want the one that is going to grow into a 4 foot monster’.


      1. I think she really wants a puppy. Perhaps she was told we are only going to look but we can not take one home. Tom may just get her one.


      2. Kay her body language showed she was terrified of the puppy. She is shirking away from the puppy. She doesn’t even look at the puppy. Also if her mother wasn’t planning on getting her a puppy why did she drag her to a pet shop?


  6. This is true ,and Tom was out doing it as well this weekend . They are making money off the child. It started from the time she was born. They pushed her into being a celebrity famous child. She covers her ear like she is in pain , because she is scared of them taking pictures and asking questions while shoving a camera down her face. Some celebrities do anything to be famous even forcing the child to pose and be stalked by the media to boost their carreeers. All this happend right as Tom was filming his new movie and Kate releasing her knew modeling and clothing line. Hmmmmmmmmmmm !


  7. I’m going to cut Katie a little slack here. I live close to scientology’s 2nd (??) mecca, Clearwater, FL. I’ve read many stories on kids that have escaped the cult (and make no mistake about it, that’s what scientology is). I’m happy Katie managed to escape with Suri and will hopefully try to give her some sort of “normal” life. I do think she’s going a bit overboard now by trying to cram in all the activities she may have wanted Suri to participate in, in just the span of a week but I’m hoping she means well. For instance, getting her into a real school, taking her to the zoo, gymnastics, etc. Doing that all at once must be overwhelming to a 6 year old. Especially one that has never participated in a normal upbringing.

    And perhaps she (Katie) feels safest right now being seen in the public. When you read some of the investigative stories about scientology, it’s a pretty scary group. They like to follow and harass those that leave the cult and cut them off from family members. It’s truly some sad stories and I’m hoping Katie and Suri don’t have to deal with their wrath.

    I wish them both good luck.


    1. ShelleyShocked, I am originally from Clearwater. Remembering 30 years ago when the sinos took over the Ft. Harrison Hotel and whatever else they could buy, we natives we stunned to see these individuals in various military-looking uniforms invading our beautiful little city. They, the sinos, the regular troops, have such a blank expression in their eyes as they go about whatever is their business. It is very scary to see. I’m so glad little Suri, thanks to her mother and grandparents, may have escaped their influence.


      1. Yes, they are quite scary. At first I thought they were city/county workers in “uniform” but then I was informed they were the scientologists. Creepy. I’m glad they (Katie and Suri) have broken free too. I wonder how long it wil take Suri to become a regar kid.


      2. Looks like the parents will share custody, so you know that the Sino’s front man (who thinks he can fly, by the way, if he wanted to) will have his daughter deep into that cult whenever and however he can. I hope I am wrong.


  8. My six year old still likes his blankie and favorite stuffed animals. He is not suffering any emotional problems either. Not all children develop physically, emotionally and cognitively at the same rate. If she is 12 years old still with pacifier and blankie while shopping at Macy’s than I will agree with your statement of her being a big girl, but she is only 6! Why must we force our children to grow up so quickly! I’m glad I live a life in alway from public eyes, sure pretty hard to be scrutinized for everything one does or does not do. Money is not worth that pressure!


    1. I think you might be missing something Joe- it is actually NOT normal or OK for a 6-year old to behave like this- a blankie and stuffy everytime she leaves the house-? Just like Dr. Lilly said- this is a developmental stage where she needs to be making progress- toward a goal (you can find psychology #101 resourses on the web- that will explain it).


  9. Katie needs to get her into therapy- quickly- so she will be settled into it by the time school starts. the therapist can also work with her on learning to play with same-age peers and help her understand about structure and rules- all through play therapy. I hope Katie has a brain and gets this kid some professional assistance.


  10. when I saw the photos of the pet store in a magazine, i thought Suri looked like she was trying to manipulate to get the puppy. But i am not an expert.
    I feel like a lot of celebrities try to look like super parents for the cameras.
    If the Scientologists treat their children like adults, i have always wondered why Tom and Katie carry Suri so much…she seems so big for that. I thought maybe it was because of paparazzi so close and the parents were being protective but maybe it is because Suri wants them to. Like you said- because she is insecure and immature. I hope she has a chance to be normal.


  11. I came to your blog to see if you had analyzed James in the Colorado shooting/courtroom. I am curious what you have to say about him.


  12. She needs to find some interest in a double large cheese burger with super sized fries and milk shake . She is skanky thin over there .You can see her spine poking out her back she is getting to thin. Can someone tell me where I can get this hollywood secret diet medicine to lose weight .


  13. Either way Tom and Kate made a beautiful child together. They both need to let Suri have a normal life . Cameras off limits to this child and they have the power to make it happen if they want to.


      1. Dr Glass – thank you for these interesting write up, I always enjoy reading them. For the blog, just so you are aware, there do seem to be some display issues as I also cannot see the pics (either in Mozilla or IE browser).


  14. For Elena Mitchell, : Correction on your French phrase. It’s not “chacun EST son gout”. Correct saying is “chacun A son gout”. Verb “avoir” (to have), not “etre” (to be). For English correction, “spoilt brat” is correctly spelled “spoiled brat”.
