The curse of Oprah

The news of the split between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes was met with the same general reaction as when Pete Rose admitted betting on baseball and Clay Aiken announcing he was gay.

Of course many remember Cruise's demonstrable (and borderline bizarre) declaration of his love for Holmes when he jumped up and down on a couch on The Oprah Winfrey Show. So when Cruise and Holmes married 18 months later, Oprah's name was conspicuously absent from the guest list (I guess the cast of Dawson's Creek took precedence). That said, it was inevitable that such an obvious snub was bound to come back and haunt TomKat (dear Lord, did I really just use one of those moronic celebrity amalgams?).

The moral of the story is one that "author" James Frey learned the hard way: You don't double cross Oprah. It just doesn't end well.

Considering reports of Michelle Obama's parting ways with Oprah, this could be a hopeful sign.
