Katie Holmes is celebrating her one-year anniversary this weekend — of her divorce, that is. The former wife of Tom Cruise is reportedly planning a divorce party this weekend in NYC at swanky hotel The Jane, complete with some of the prominent members of the city’s elite social set. Holmes filed for divorce from Cruise nearly one year ago and is looking to mark the occasion by celebrating with her closest friends.
“We understand she’s marking the occasion with a ‘divorce party,’ said a insider to Grazia magazine. “The mood will be enjoyable and emotional, with Katie wanting to thank them for her support throughout the year.” Some of the guests who are expected to attend the bash include fashionista Jeanne Yang, socialite Lizzie Tisch and Spike Lee's wife Tonya.
Holmes has had a whirlwind 12 months since her divorce to Cruise. In addition to raising their daughter Suri, she’s currently filming a new movie Mania Days. She also launched a collection of her Holmes & Yang fashion line last September at NY Fashion Week and starred in Broadway play Dead Accounts. With all of her work projects, Holmes has reportedly left herself no time to try and start another romance. “She’s lying low on the romantic side of things. She doesn’t need that right now. Her focus is on Suri, said a source to People magazine.
However, there are still rumors swirling that Katie is falling for her Mania Days co-star Luke Kirby. Kirby is reportedly dating costume designer Andrea Sarubbi, but the pair have hit it off on set and become close friends. The actor has even met Suri on a few occasions and Holmes has reportedly confided details to him about the difficulty of her marriage to Cruise.
The movie even calls for them to film a steamy love scene together, but their relationship has remained strictly platonic for now. “Katie is aware that Luke is in a relationship. They are just really enjoying getting to know each other and have become firm friends,” said a source. “They spend nearly every lunch break in her trailer and went bowling together last week. Katie says she loves working with Luke and hanging out. She hasn’t seemed this happy for ages.”
Mania Days is scheduled to be released in theaters early next year.
