Tom and Katie attended The Black Ball hosted by Alicia Keys and Iman in NYC last night. The soon to be newlyweds hosted a table for $50,000 which included Tom Freston, the other Tom fired by Sumner Redstone earlier this year. That's one expensive table but it's for charity so it's all good. Page Six reports that:
TOM Cruise has a new best friend, Tom Freston. The two Toms were humiliated by Viacom chairman Sumner Redstone earlier this year when Redstone fired them both. Now they've become good pals and are showing a united front at tomorrow night's Conde Nast Black Ball at Hammerstein Ballroom hosted by Alicia Keyes and Iman. "[Cruise] bought a $50,000 table and has sat [Freston] right next to himself," said our spy. Also at the table: Graydon and Anna Carter, Vanity Fair features editor Jane Sarkin and Diane Sawyer's "GMA" producer, Marc Robertson. A rep for Cruise declined comment.
We wonder if this means that Tom Freston will be involved in the new UA that Cruise is forming. Should be an interesting pairing. As for the best dressed of the evening, Anne wins hands down.
