PAGE-TURNER: The House of Cruise has been temporarily rocked by the allegations made in Andrew Mortons tell-all Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography. In his new book, the author who exposed the private lives of Princess Diana and Madonna claims that Scientologists planted a meadow of flowers for [Cruise and former wife Nicole Kidman] to run through, that Kidman feared blackmail by Scientologists from sex tapes made with Cruise, and that the Lions for Lambs stars latest mission was to recruit David Beckham. In one of the most controversial passages of the book, Morton speculates that Katie Holmes may have felt that she was in "the horror movie Rosemary's Baby, in which an unsuspecting young woman is impregnated with the Devil's child" when she was carrying her daughter, Suri. So what does Morton say about the rumors surrounding Cruises sexuality (and creepy high school wrestling fetish)? Find out for yourself when the book is released Jan. 15.

FLICK: As if the vagina werent terrifying enough for gay men, Friday, Jan. 18, marks the release of the new horror-comedy Teeth.

Kirk Honeycutt from The Hollywood Reporter calls Teeth the most alarming cautionary tale for men since Fatal Attraction -- and let's face it, the only thing that would have made that film better was if Glenn Closes nipples shot acid in Michael Douglass face. If you want to know more (or just love blossoming-rose-as-vagina symbolism and '80s hair band references), check out the trailer on IMDB.com.
