Gwen Stefani: ‘Motherhood is Overwhelming’

4e3cPRP 0018682 Gwen Stefani: ‘Motherhood is Overwhelming’GWEN Stefani often finds motherhood “overwhelming”.

The Don’t Speak hitmaker — who has two sons, Kingston, six, and four-year-old Zuma, with husband Gavin Rossdale — insists she loves being a mom, but it’s difficult to juggle everyone’s needs.

“When you first have a baby your life doesn’t change. I mean, you have a little less sleep and you drag these cuddly things around you and it’s just amazing,” she said.
“But you still get to be you. Once they get to, like, five, six and school and it starts to get, like, ‘Wow, they got real problems. They’re my responsibility.’ Oh my God. That is overwhelming.

‘I’ve been with Gavin for 14 years, and, let’s face it, that is a huge accomplishment. I feel so proud of that — it hasn’t been the easiest journey.

“He’s home now for, like, seven days, so just him being home makes everything different. In a good way. But also in a hard way because it changes everything.”

Suri Cruise had a blast at the park with some pals on Monday (September 3). Enjoying a fun Labor Day, the adorable 6-year-old was joined by her mother, actress Katie Holmes, in Brooklyn, New York.

Suri channelled Little Red Riding Hood while sporting mom’s red cardigan over her black and white summer dress.

Tomorrow, Suri is set to start school at Avenues, an exclusive $39,000-a-year private school in New York’s upmarket Chelsea neighbourhood. And some of the parents of the prestigious school have concerns about the ever-present paparazzi.

“I had two different parents call to tell me their children are beautiful young girls that look like Suri,” education consultant Dana Haddad told New York Post.

“The girls will all be in uniforms, and they’re worried their daughters will be mistaken for Suri by the paparazzi outside the school,” Haddad added.

Scientology Picked Tom Cruise’s Women? Actor Hits Out Report From Vanity Fair

4be7JTM 0613528 Scientology Picked Tom Cruise’s Women? Actor Hits Out Report From Vanity FairTOM Cruise‘s dirty linen is getting another airing.

Vanity Fair magazine — who famously published the first photos of Suri Cruise, Tom’s daughter with now-ex-wife Katie Holmes – has run an astonishing expose that claims Scientology recruited different women for Cruise before he met the Dawson’s Creek star.

Shelly Miscavige, the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige, headed up the task of finding Tom an appropriate mate. Candidates were told they were auditioning for a new training film and were asked a series of questions including “What do you think of Tom Cruise?”

Iranian-born actress and longtime Scientology follower Nazanin Boniadi (pictured below) was the winner in the girlfriend derby, writes Orth, and went on to date Cruise from November, 2004 to January, 2005.

Boniadi had to sign multiple confidentiality agreements and ended up falling head over heels for Cruise. But in short order, he decided she wasn’t up to the task, sources told Orth, and complained to her, “I get more love from an extra than I get from you.”

Boniadi was then subjected to daily sessions — two to three hours each — of purging herself of “negative thoughts about Tom,” reports Orth. “She felt completely shut off; her only source of money was a credit card issued in the name of Cruise’s production company.”

Eventually Boniadi was sent off to a Scientology center in Florida, and the process began again.

In April, 2005, Tom debuted Katie Holmes as his new girlfriend.

Speaking to Showbiz 411, Paul Haggis, the acclaimed writer/producer/director who left Scientology in 2010 after decades in the controversial organization, has come forward with a strong confirmation of the Vanity Fair story.0c71vf Scientology Picked Tom Cruise’s Women? Actor Hits Out Report From Vanity Fair

“I was deeply disturbed by how the highest ranking members of a church could so easily justify using one of their members; how they so callously punished [Boniadi] and then so effectively silenced her when it was done. It wasn’t just the threats; they actually made her feel ashamed, when all she had been was human and trusting,” Haggis said.

“I’ve met quite a number of people who have been treated shamefully but are afraid to speak out…Most of the others are just ordinary people…They live in fear of retribution, legal, financial or personal…They fear an incredibly wealthy organization that boasts that it seeks truth, empowers people, brings families together, encourages independent thought and free speech, and champions human rights. I would like to say that i don’t know how its members, many of them good and intelligent people, can remain so purposely blind when they are faced with evidence like this every day, but then I am no one to talk. I was happily blind for many years, so I know the shame that Naz feels.”

Haggis said that Boniadi tried to repair her relationship with Scientology so that she could remain a member, and only resigned two years ago.

Meanwhile, Cruise has denied the claims.

“Lies in a different font are still lies — designed to sell magazines,” his rep said, in a dig at Vanity Fair.
