Andy Kaufman is alive! Oh, give us a break! There's a lot of chatter suggesting that controversial Saturday Night Live comic and Taxi star Andy Kaufman , who died of cancer in 1984 at 35, faked his death and is living incognito. Things broke weird this week when Andy's brother Michael announced at the annual Andy Kaufman Awards in New York that he found an essay among Andy's things detailing how he'd fake his death and run away with the love of his life. According to the Huffington Post, Michael claims he got a letter from his brother in 1999 in which the comic admitted he ran away so he could live with his new wife - and their daughter - in obscurity.

Expect to gorge on months of sleazy TomKat divorce news? Wise up: That most awesome breakup circus sideshow is tragically over. Katie Holmes ' lawyer, Jonathan Wolfe , on Monday said the duo had reached a civil, perhaps even pleasant solution to their sham, er, loving marriage.

Is the Church of Scientology to blame for the collapse of the TomKat corporeal merger? The Los Angeles Times says Dawson's Creek sweetie turned Tom Cruise vassal Katie Holmes , 33, left her man in part because she felt the church controlled her life. Literally: Celebuzz says TomKat's household staff is handpicked by the church, which also dictates Tom's work decisions. Things came to a head, says TMZ, when Tom insisted their daughter, Suri , 6, be sent to live at Sea Org, a reportedly boot-camplike center where kids get an intensive course in L.

All the celebrisphere is abuzz with the sad yet long-expected news. Katie Holmes, 33, and Tom Cruise, 49, are divorcing, according to People mag and their reps. Reports from the front say she's hired a lawyer, filed the papers on Thursday — five days before the guy turns 50 — and wants sole custody of their daughter, Suri, 6. That renewed the notion, passed along by TMZ.com, that Katie didn't want Suri to get involved in Tom's Scientology (to which, BTW, Kate did convert). Poor Tom. He was evidently clueless about Katie's intentions, according to TMZ As evidence, the Web site ran pics of the two strolling hand in hand in Iceland just two weeks ago, with smiles that suggest no impending nastiness.

Tom Cruise was in New York this week to do something besides promote "Rock of Ages. " He received the fourth-ever Friars Club Entertainment Icon Award, placing him in the same company as Douglas Fairbanks, Cary Grant and Frank Sinatra — so the Friars don't give them out to often. Best of all, Tom didn't have to listen to a bunch of old Catskill comics make fun of him. The evening was all about how great Cruise is. Alec Baldwin presided at the Waldorf-Astoria, where speakers included such former co-stars as Cuba Gooding Jr. and Kevin Pollak.
