Katie Holmes may live in a posh apartment and collect a small fortune each year in child support from ex-hubby Tom Cruise (she reportedly gets $400k annually), but she still opts to cab it around New York City! I mean, she could take Uber or use a car service, you know...
In other news, Katie is reportedly set to return to the small screen in a yet-to-be-titled ABC pilot from Beautiful Creatures writer Richard LaGravanese. TV Guide reports that the show, which is set in New York City, is about "the love and rivalry between two powerful socialites who play out their obsessive attraction for and seduction of each other through the manipulation of others."
Suri's mama is also gearing up to promote her latest film, Miss Meadows, at the 13th Tribeca Film Festival next month. Katie plays a seemingly prim and proper schoolteacher who apparently has a side life as a vigilante killer. Both of those roles sound pretty juicy ... can't wait to see more of the former Dawson's Creek star this year!
She's got the single parenting thing down!
Katie Holmes covers the April issue of Elle UK, and the actress talks all about her attitude towards raising daughter Suri and how she celebrates women and wants her little girl to grow up with a strong sense of confidence.
"I think the basics are very important: the number one thing is making sure my child feels loved. And good about herself. And that what she does and who she is, is special and important, and should be celebrated. And my mom always said, 'No one loves you like your mother,'" she explained to the mag.
The Dawson's Creek star divorced Tom Cruise in 2012 after five years of marriage, but she doesn't regret a single thing about the life choices she's made.
"I think all of our experiences bring us to a greater understanding of ourselves and help us realize what is most important. That being said, I have three older sisters and one older brother and I went to an all-girls school, and have always been a fan of women. I support women and all experiences give you more insight into others, as well as yourself," she gushed.
She's a good Midwestern girl with good values!
It's official: Katie Holmes and daughter Suri Cruise are bonafide New Yorkers!
After being based in Los Angeles, the actress and her adorable little girl have become acclimating to city living quite nicely. So much so that the two, who haven't been seen together in a number of weeks, have their own agendas!
Guess this is what happens when you're a part of the Big Apple!

She's still got it!
While at the Z100 Jingle Ball in New York City last night, Katie Holmes showed that her clothing isn't as conservative as some might think, donning a studded sweater with a sexy short skirt.
The 34-year-old actress was on hand to introduce Selena Gomez prior to her performance at the event which also included acts such as Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke, Macklemore and more.
She picked the right 'fit for the occasion!

Katie Holmes was all smiles as she ran errands in New York City on Thursday. Earlier in the morning, the 34-year-old actress dropped off daughter Suri at school. We gotta wonder what's making the mom smile!
Outfitted in black pants and a sweater only Chewbacca would envy, Katie kept warm in the chilly winter weather.
It's been quite an interesting few days for the former Dawson's Creek star. Lawyers representing German magazine empire Bauer Media, which publishes In Touch and Life & Style, may be subpoenaing Katie for a deposition in her ex husband Tom Cruise's $50 million libel lawsuit against the publishers, reports Emag.co.uk.
If Holmes were to be deposed, it is believed that would she would be questioned upon whether or not she thinks that her ex-husband “abandoned” their daughter after their divorce, which Life & Style claimed in a cover story. The Mission: Impossible star is suing the Bauer publications for defamation.
A source connected to the case told Emag: “The decision hasn’t been made yet. It’s certainly possible. A decision is likely to be finalized in the next few months.”

It was purely platonic, though!
Katie Holmes braved the freezing temperatures in N.Y.C. today, and either she was trying to keep warm or she was in an affectionate mood, because we caught her hugging a female pal as they parted ways!
Some girl bonding might be just what the doctor ordered these days!
The actress could be subpoenaed to sit for a deposition in the bitter legal battle between Bauer Publishing and her ex-husband Tom Cruise, which in effect would obligate the former Dawson's Creek star to divulge personal information about her marriage and divorce from the megastar.
Suri's mommy has to be a little stressed over all this!
Katie Holmes is relatively new to Twitter, but she certainly knows how to keep us guessing when it comes to her tweets! Especially since this one could very well be aimed at ex-husband Tom Cruise...
Yesterday Katie wrote, "Love this. So true," and posted a picture of a Andre Malraux quote that read:
"The real struggle begins when you have to contend against a part of your own self. Up to that point, it's all plain sailing. Yet it's only from such inner conflicts that a real man emerges. Yes, we've always got to fear the world within ourselves, there's no escaping it."
As you know, Cruise is currently embroiled in a bitter legal battle with Bauer Publishing Company, over reports published in their magazines that he "abandoned" his daughter Suri after splitting from Holmes last summer. He is suing the company for $50 million, and during his deposition he's had to reveal some very personal details about his family life. Cruise admitted that Holmes filed for divorce "to protect Suri from Scientology," according to court documents, but he drew the line at claims that he wasn't being a good parents.
"'He chose Scientology over Suri for good.' 'Has he chosen Scientology over Suri for good?' 'Abandoned by Daddy.' I mean come on, that is absolutely disgusting," Cruise said in court. "I tolerate a tremendous amount and I'm very privileged to be able to have the life that I have, and I believe that. But there is a line that I draw for myself and -- and that's it. And I asked for an apology. I asked for a retraction. They denied it." We're curious to see what other details come out!
Though Holmes filed for divorce from Cruise in June of 2012 after nearly six years of marriage and finalized their split within two weeks, Monday would have marked the former couple's 7-year wedding anniversary. Interesting timing!
She finally caved!
Katie Holmes just joined Twitter, and she made her debut on the social media site by sharing a picture from the set of her latest film The Giver.
"So happy to be on twitter!!!!!! Sending first tweets from South Africa," she captioned the snapshot, which also shows cast mate Taylor Swift.
Suri's mom is already catching up to the competition, too!
The actress has only been on the site since this morning, and already she has 15,000+ followers!
