Love, etc.: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes settle divorce — just like that?

• Settled: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, whose lawyers said Monday they have worked out a divorce agreement. Just like that! Only 11 days after she filed for divorce. Can it really be that easy to divorce Tom Cruise? Or was precisely how it would all go down outlined in the prenup? Couldn’t have been that easy: In his announcement of the deal to People, Holmes’s attorney thanked six other lawyers by name for their help. Of course there’s no official word on money or custody; the couple of five-and-a-half years issued a statement saying they’re “working together” toward daughter Suri’s “best interests” but plan to keep the details private. (More analysis of the Cruise-Holmes settlement at Celebritology.)
