The Word: Who should Katie Holmes date next?

"The Other Place" Broadway Opening Night - Arrivals & Curtain Call

Katie Holmes is reportedly ready to start dating again after her split from Tom Cruise, but sources say the fallout from their divorce is still having an effect on her, according to Radar Online. “Katie’s in a dilemma because she wants to date but is concerned where it could lead to from there,” a source says. “She’s worried that if she commits herself fully to another man, she will have to give up the freedom she’s enjoying so much at the moment. As a single woman, she has no one controlling her nowadays, telling her what to do or who to see — and she absolutely loves it.  However, at the same time, she also misses being with someone special to share experiences with, and she doesn’t want to be alone for the rest of her life.”
Don’t worry, Katie. Metro has a few suggestions for a new waltz partner for this new phase of your life:

1. John Mayer: Because everyone hooks up with John Mayer.
2. Joshua Jackson: Wouldn’t a “Dawson’s Creek” reunion be better as a reality show?
3. Samantha Ronson: What better way for Stella to get her groove back?
4. Danny DeVito: She does have a thing for older, shorter guys, right?
5. Ted the talking teddy bear: That bear made half a billion dollars at the box office; Katie needs serious box office help.

Beyonce announces tour dates
Does she know how to announce a world tour or what? Fresh off a sweaty, hair-whipping Super Bowl performance, Beyonce continued ruling the world by announcing a world tour that will hit North America this summer. “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” (because what else would she call it?) is said to be her biggest yet. Queen B hasn’t toured since 2009. Beyonce will close out the tour in New York City. She is slated to perform at hubby Jay-Z’s Barclays Center on Aug. 3.
