Suri Cruise’s life is way better than mine

Is it “wrong” and “inappropriate” to want to punch a 5-year-old little girl? If you think it is, you may reevaluate your position once you read this story about Suri Cruise’s recent trip to the ice skating rink at Rockefeller Center:

[Tom] Cruise shelled out $5,000 to rent out the rink’s “Igloo,” a VIP-like area where paying customers can bypass the lines and warm up after taking a spin on the ice.

“Tom rented it for an entire session so no one else could use it,” the source said.

The admission price for the hour-and-a-half session runs $75 a person. However the Cruise-Holmes clan isn’t your average customer. In fact, the source tells us Suri’s famous parents snubbed the venue’s refreshments and opted to cater their own family day with gourmet treats. TomKat had hot chocolate from Serendipity 3 and sweets from Jacques Torres brought in “especially for Suri,” said the insider.

Awe, this must have been a Hallmark moment if ever there was one. In my humble opinion, it’s a story straight out of Martha Stewart Living or Blueboy Magazine (depending on your point of view). What’s sweeter than Tom Cruise and family big-timing it over the mouth-breathers trying to enjoy a holiday moment? Not inviting Connor or Isabella, for one. What? Who are they, you ask? Those are Tom and Nicole Kidman’s rent-a-family. Now that Tom has a real kid and Nicole got some seed to stick, they don’t need the accessories anymore. It’s a shame when you think about it. I’m sure Connor and Isabella can use a little extra scratch this time of year — Xenu knows (yeah, I went there) that Suri could use another bellhop or dressing assistant.
