Theresa Rebeck's "Dead Accounts" is on Broadway, loaded with stars -- including two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz in the lead as an unscrupulous Wall Street go-getter who has landed back home in Cincinnati, lavishing ill-gotten gains on his family, among them his unglamorous, stay-at-home sister, played by Katie Holmes. The play, Holmes' first acting gig since her divorce from Tom Cruise, began its life as a non-glitzy homecoming offering. The playwright grew up near Cincinnati, and the city's top regional company, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, commissioned her to tell a story set locally.

"Project Runway's" Heidi Klum is on the February cover of Marie Claire and inside she talks about her divorce from Seal ("It's not what I wanted...but it's not a real problem"), marrying again ("I don't think so") and younger lovers (“I can understand why a woman finds a young man attractive, because the truth is that when men get older, their shape changes. Younger men train more, and when the clothes come off, it is nice to look at a sexy, ripped body. But I am realistic. I'm turning 40 next year; I don't think I could deal with waking up next to a 25-year-old.” The magazine is out Jan. 15, and "Project Runway" returns for an 11th season on Jan. 24. [Marie Claire]

The marriage of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, one of Hollywood's highest profile relationships and a subject of endless tabloid speculation, is over. Holmes announced through a lawyer Friday that she had filed for divorce from her movie star husband of five years. The news surprised the entertainment industry, which counts Cruise as one of its most recognizable stars, and apparently the actor himself. Cruise learned Holmes had initiated divorced proceedings in New York while he was working on a film set in Iceland.

Katie Holmes was the one who pulled the trigger on her nearly 6-year-old marriage, setting Tom Cruise up for his third divorce in a little more than two decades. "Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children," Amanda Lundberg, Cruise's rep, said Friday. "Please allow them their privacy to work this out. " Holmes reportedly filed papers anonymously in New York on Thursday, according to TMZ, which said the actress is seeking sole legal and "primary residential" custody of Suri, her 6-year-old daughter with the "Rock of Ages" star.

Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are officially divorced. Game over. The end. No dishy dish for any of us. Papers filed in a New York court indicate the case was closed Monday, a mere 53 days from when Holmes filed for divorce and 42 days from when the couple reached a settlement agreement. The couple formerly known as TomKat, parents to 6-year-old Suri, got married in 2006. PHOTOS: Celebrity splits of 2012 Contrast that with the Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries divorce, which on Monday saw the still-married couple marking the one-year anniversary of their lavish wedding despite divorce proceedings that began in October 2011.

At least people will now stop talking about Tom Cruise's underperforming "Rock of Ages. " The news Friday that Cruise and Katie Holmes, his actress wife of five years, were planning to divorce comes at a tricky time in the actor's see-saw career. "Rock of Ages," an adaptation of the rock 'n' roll musical, recently premiered to sub-par numbers and then faded about as fast as a one-hit-wonder band. After opening on June 15 to $14.4 million -- about 25% below even modest industry projections -- "Rock of Ages" last weekend slipped nearly 50%, grossing just $7.7 million.

Katie Holmes' new Broadway effort "Dead Accounts" has finally opened for New York audiences after weeks of previews, and the reviews are in. The verdict: a mixed reception for former "Smash" show-runner Theresa Rebeck's play, but Katie herself won over many with her performance -- especially in contrast to her 2008 Broadway debut in a revival of Arthur Miller's "All My Sons. " The Times said Holmes was "charming, natural and, yes, about as fresh-faced as a moisturizer model," but ultimately couldn't bring dimension to the poorly drawn character.

Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise have seen considerably less attention paid to their abrupt split, thanks to the recent flurry of activity surrounding Kristen Stewart - but that's not to say Holmes isn't still sought after. The "Dawson's Creek" actress made headlines last week simply by turning down an invitation to the annual gala for the Dizzy Feet Foundation, a dance scholarship program for which she serves as board member. The event, co-chaired by director Adam Shankman and "So You Think You Can Dance" producer Nigel Lythgoe, forged on without her, though the men explained Katie's decision to sit it out. "We just got off the phone with Katie, and she let us know that she won't make it tonight," the two said to the crowd at the top of the evening. PHOTOS: Celebrity splits of 2012 "While she is very upset and disappointed that she is not here, we all agree that her attendance would make her the spotlight of the evening and it would distract from what tonight is all about: dance and the arts.” Fair enough.

Katie Holmes couldn't tell a lie, but she definitely tap danced around the truth in an interview conducted the day before she filed for divorce from Tom Cruise. In hindsight, her soon-to-be-blindsided spouse's name was remarkably absent from a sit-down she had with California style magazine C on a Wednesday in June, according to Kelsey McKinnon, the senior editor who talked to Holmes. "Going back over the tapes, there were signs," McKinnon said (via the New York Post ). "Holmes was certainly very aware of herself, laying a couple of cards on the table but never showing her whole hand.
