What Really Happened...

Mike - Why did you bring your baby here? You’re supposed to be working!

Jenny – Look, I’ve no choice! My babysitter cancelled at the last minute, my parents are out of town, and I can’t find anyone to look after her, so I had to bring her here!

Mike – Jenny, this is an important job! If we screw it up, our bosses at the station are SO going to fire us!

Jenny – No, no, Mike. Nothing’s going to happen, OK? You just do the interview, I’ll handle the camera with one hand and hold the baby with the other... She won’t cry, she’s such an angel.

Mike – Uh, I don’t know. I’ve got an uneasy feeling about this. Couldn’t you leave her in her cot here in the van? I’ll leave the air-conditioning running, at least we can get on job.

Jenny – I can’t do that, Mike! She’s just a baby! What if something happened to her? You’ve got to help me, Mike. Please? Remember when I covered for you when your mom was hospitalized? Huh, remember that?

Mike – Alright, alright. I’ll do the interview holding the microphone, and you handle the video camera AND the baby. Just make sure she doesn’t cry, OK? Gawd, if something goes wrong, my career as a reporter is down the drain, man. And you, you’ll probably never get another gig as a cameraman in this town again. Oops, I mean, camera-woman… Stop playing with the baby rattle!

Jenny – OK, calm down here he comes! Here comes Tom!

Mike – OK its show time! Let’s do one good, clean take…

Jenny – Oh, wait could you hold my baby’s squirt bottle for me? You’ve got one free hand, I can’t hold anything else…

Mike – Why can’t you leave it in the van…! Tom’s almost here! Oh alright… (grumbles…grumbles…) Tom, Tom, I’m Mike Smith from CNN UK, can I ask a few questions regarding your humanitarian work in Africa…


Mike - Huh? What's happening...? Jenny...!

Tom CruiseWHAT THE…?! Why would you do that? Do you like thinking less of people, is that it? Don't run away! That's incredibly rude!! I'm here giving you an interview and you do that ... it's incredibly rude. YOU'RE A JERK ... JERK ... YOU'RE A JERK!!!
(and that my friends, is how it actually happened...)

  • Tom Cruise lost his cool when a reporter squirted water on his face with a joke microphone. It was all over the news and RSS feeds.

  • Yup...I read it. What's wrong with him? I mean, he's like so..ugh..

  • Hehe, another good one. For REAL behind the scene news, get it from Simon.

    But on another note, I can't think of any friends who have a day care centre at any of their work places, although I do recall being told that there is one in Putrajaya for the govt servants. And I don't think there's any in the vicinity of our "world class" KLCC either, unless someone can prove me wrong on this :)

  • zer0 & fredy - maybe next time i should put the excerpt of the article at the bottom of the post, in case ppl have not read it...

    yuin - maybe if tom cruise was a bit taller, the squirt would not have reached his face...

    twinsmom - i wonder how jenny would have handled twins...

    wildcharm - pre-marriage jitters, i suppose...

    pat - i have to admit, a bit like the stork story...

    belacan - those rubber types can maa... especially when very full...

    jedibaba - for me, those are the best days of the week! :)

  • Funny! What's up with Tom lately? He was really rude in a recent interview on NBC and a little whack on Oprah when she asked him about his bi-racial son. He needs a lesson in tact...I guess Christian Science doesn't teach that.

  • the guys not mentally stable. He dumped Nicole Kidman!

    By Blogger Simon, at 6/28/2005 04:27:00 pm

  • mudslinger - Tom Cruise and his mid-life crisis insecurities, next he's probably going to dump Katie Holmes for Lindsay Lohan...
