Like little stars.
Reportedly “incensed” at Tom Cruise’s increasingly batty behavior, Paula Fortunato persuaded her media mogul husband, Viacom chairman Sumner Redstone, to fire Cruise for his unacceptable conduct. Britain’s Daily Mail reports that Fortunato, 43, told her husband, 40 years her senior, that Cruise had “forever turned female fans off him” and that she “never want[s] to see another Tom Cruise movie again.”
Redstone recently issued a statement saying, “As much as we like him personally, we thought it was wrong to renew his deal. His recent conduct has not been acceptable to Paramount.” The Daily Mail guesses that “recent conduct” refers to Cruise’s escalating public allegiance to Scientology, which includes criticizing Brooke Shields for using postnatal antidepressants, and his outrageous demand that Katie Holmes give birth in silence.
Here is a woman generally dismissed as a trophy wife calling the shots on the career of one of the most successful actors in Hollywood. I guess she’s telling us to take that trophy and shove it.

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
