Thank God for Tivo, so I could watch the freak show that was the Tom Cruise episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Seriously the man is deranged. “I admire her and I thought I wanted to meet her — so I called her.”

Is there something about Katie Holmes that we just don't know about? It's all so over the top, that the “relationship” rings totally false.

“I can't be cool. I can't be laid-back,” an exuberant Cruise said Monday during a taped appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. “Something happened and I want to celebrate it.”

A starry-eyed Cruise got down on his knees and repeatedly jumped up on the couch like a Robin Williams comedy act, saying that his love for Holmes was “beyond cool.”

Plus, the rumor that Tom was after Kate Bosworth, who did not care to be Tom's arm candy, is slightly disturbing. Mr. Cruise also tends to give the most ridiculous quotes regarding women as well.

Tom, for his part, tells the next Reader's Digest that the ladies just drive him ker-azy. “They smell good. They look pretty. I love women. I do.”

Oh Tom, you had me at “they smell good.”

And we still have that whole damn Scientology thing going on. Tom the healer, is quoted as saying that Brooke Shields was misguided when she took the anti-depressant Paxil to fight her depression after giving birth to her daughter.

Cruise, who zealously preaches the Church of Scientology's hatred of all mind-altering drugs, tells Bush (Billy Bush of Access Hollywood): “Here is a woman, and I care about Brooke Shields because I think she is an incredibly talented woman. You look at, where has her career gone?”

“These drugs are dangerous. I have actually helped people come off,” Cruise maintains to Bush.

“When you talk about postpartum, you can take people today, women, and what you do is you use vitamins. There is a hormonal thing that is going on, scientifically, you can prove that. But when you talk about emotional, chemical imbalances in people, there is no science behind that. You can use vitamins to help a woman through those things.”

What did Brooke Shields do to Tom Cruise? Refuse to be arm candy at one time? Apparently, Tom is now a noted scientist as well. Flintstone's chewables for everyone.
