Katie Holmes' hands

Yes, it appears that Katie Holmes has purple hands.  Really, her hands are purple.  It's not enough that Tom Cruise has killed her career, he's now dying parts of Katie Holmes purple!

The great thing about inventing your own religion is that you can create various bizarre rituals and then force people to go through them - and pay you for the privilege.

Part of becoming a Scientologist is a purification ritual that turns your hands purple.  Personally, I would made them dye their back-sides blue - but this is pretty good too.

UPDATE:  We've received a couple of comments saying that (a) Scientology doesn't involve rituals and (b) that Katie is suffering from Reynaud's phenomenon.  I've not seen any reports of this being the cause, but I'm happy to accept it nonetheless.

just to clear things up you do not have to undergo any "ritual" to become a scientologist. i dont know why katie holmes' hands are purple but thats pretty crazy that every abnormal thing that couple goes through everyone blames scientology on..and the only people who do this are the ones who know nothing about it..if you really want to diss the religion because its new and different atleast get the facts straight..visit scientology.org

It's spelled Raynaud's Syndrome, either primary or secondary, it's a vasoconstrictive disorder, treatable with medications depending on the cause, and I would be willing to bet that's NOT what she has. I doubt that she just suddenly developed a serious case. I would be more inclined to believe it has something to do with a dietary cause.

I have reynaulds and it doesn't bother someone in the summer time..it's a winter time condition..and your hands and feet can turn sort of purple/black - but not in the heat. At least not in my case. When your hands and feet get cold, the blood vessels constrict and make your extremities turn purple.
