Idle threat of the week

Yesterday morning found Katie Holmes slinking around under the guise of an alias and running as hard as she can for many hours. Although I'm sure any attentive member of the ever growing Free Katie movement already knows their girl was just participating in the New York City Marathon, and not only was watchful hubby Tom Cruise tracking her every movement, but he made sure to mark his territory be planting a kiss on the actress as she entered the home stretch.

But speculation is ripe that Holmes has finally owned up to her Stockholm (Scientology?) Syndrome and is now in training for an eventual escape from Cruise's contractual clutches. If so, how is Katie's plan progressing?

It's always impressive to finish a marathon, but Katie clocked in at 5 hours and 29 minutes. To put that in perspective, the oft-rotund Opera Winfrey once ran in 4 hours and 29 minutes, and former Presidential candidate Michael Dukakis -- whose eyebrows could function as parachutes -- still sliced through the air for a personal best of 3 hours and 29 minutes.

Keeping in mind Tom Cruise stays in shape by shooting running intensive films such as Mission Impossible and War of the Worlds, it's highly doubtfully that, with her posted time, Katie could outrun Tom. Let alone all of the other Scientologists -- some of whom may own speedy spacecrafts.

And Katie Holmes's attempt to escape back to the normalcy of being a Hollywood movie star is the Idle Threat of the Week for October 29th to November 4th.

Or, to cut to the chase, Katie won't be taking her top off again anytime soon.
