Is Cruise putting Holmes on mommy track?

Will Katie Holmes be a stay-at-home mom?

The buzz is that Tom Cruise wants his wife-to-be to focus on being a wife and a mother — not on her career. He also reportedly wants her to avoid the spotlight for a while.

“I’ve got Katie tucked away, so no one will get to us until my child is born — and until I want them to,” Cruise recently told “a friend” according to the new issue of Life & Style Weekly.

What’s more, according to the mag, the friend claims Cruise doesn’t want a repeat of his marriage to Nicole Kidman; the couple had two adopted children and also tended to their careers.

“I said [Katie's] life from now on was going to be about being a mother,” Cruise allegedly said. “I’m not giving her the chance to turn into another Nicole.” Cruise’s rep denies the story.

New love for Foxx?
Are Jamie Foxx and Victoria Rowell an item?

Foxx was spotted arm-in-arm with Rowell — who stars in “The Young and the Restless” — at Mary J. Blige's birthday party in Miami on Jan. 11, according to In Touch Weekly. Fox, who has spoken of his own commitment phobia, has since been spotted publicly flirting with other women, but ITW reports that Foxx and Rowell were caressing one another in a way that made one observer comment, “It’s obvious that they’re in love.”

Reps for Foxx and Rowell didn’t return The Scoop’s requests for comment.

Meanwhile, though, Foxx has been using his status as an Academy Award winner to raise a little extra cash. “I was trying to sell this Bentley that I had,” Foxx told Ellen Degeneres. “It was a ‘96 big yellow Bentley. I took it to the guy and he said I can’t give you any money for this ugly yellow Bentley. And I said, you know whose Bentley this is — don’t you watch cable? — and he said ‘I don’t care.’ So I put it on eBay and I put "Jamie Foxx Academy Award winner" and with a picture of me posing and it sold for like $150,000.”

Notes from all overIs Britney Spears negotiating to become a pitchwoman for a diet pill? The pop star, still battling the bulge from her recent pregnancy, is in talks with NV, an “all-natural appetite suppressant developed in Canada” according to the upcoming issue of Star. A spokeswoman for the singer, however, tells The Scoop there’s no truth to the report.  . . . Speaking of plump, Christina Aguilera’s upper lip looks oddly inflated lately. “Larger lips do not look good on everyone,” notes AwfulPlasticSurgery.com.  . . . Recently hitched Jason Priestley says there are great things about finding the right woman. Like sharing pizza. “You know the large pizza that used to be too much for one person to eat?” the former "90210" star told Life magazine. “Well, now you don’t have to eat the whole thing anymore.”
