Ding ding ding! Let the feuding begin!
We had NO idea these two ladiez would ever end up in a battle royale, but apparently there is some sort of bad blood here because Tori didn't hold back and try to soften the blow she bamboozled Katie with in her new book, Spelling It Like It Is.
"A friend of mine at the time did a movie with her, Teaching Mrs. Tingle … Dawson’s Creek Katie was exactly what you’d expect. She was wearing jeans and a tank top. Her hair was down. She was shy but engaging, and altogether pretty adorable."
But that's where the niceness ends because then Tori reveals what went down with Katie years later. Perhaps she is looking to gain a few bucks by letting loose? Tori goes on to add:
"[A]s I sat waiting outside [Eric Vetro's] music room [for a lesson], I heard his prior appointment working with him in the other room. It was some actress singing horribly off-key … That made me feel better. I heard him say good-bye and then the actress walked out of the room. It was Katie Holmes. I didn’t know whether we should hug or shake hands. But the signal from her was immediately clear: Don’t even come close. I instantly got nervous. We clearly weren’t going to catch up on the last ten years. And we certainly weren’t going to talk about her husband, Tom Cruise."
After apparently trying to engage Katie by talking about their children, Tori realized she wasn't living in the Dawson's Creek days anymore. Katie supposedly said she didn't know Tori had children, which was the last straw for the momma of four. She writes on:
"Come on. Okay, I know you're busy. But you’re in the public eye. Don’t tell me you don’t follow the tabloids. Don’t tell me you don’t know anything about other celebrities and their kids. Then we stood there. She was just plastic. In a perfectly polite way. … My pits were drenched. I never sweat. It was that awkward. I thought, I know you’re not a robot because you can’t sing for sh*t … Those paparazzi photos, the ones where she looks like she’s miserable but putting on a happy face? That’s what she looked like in person."
Tori served it up hard!
We're not so sure she'll get a friendly hello from Katie if they ever bump into each other again…
…but then again, Katie probably doesn't even know Tori writes books! LOLz!
