You’ve gotta feel for Katie Holmes sometimes — I mean as a mom. She’s constantly under scrutiny. And, as Tracy pointed out in the comments a while back, it’s got to be nerve wracking having hordes of people flashing cameras at you AND YOUR CHILD all the time. No wonder they carry almost-5-year-old Suri from place to place still. Seriously!

Anyway, Katie went on the Ellen Degeneres Show yesterday to promote her new TV miniseries The Kennedys, and she addressed the notorious adult gummy incident…. Here’s a transcription of the convo (via various sources):
Recently, I took [Suri] to get ice cream in New York at this place called Serendipity that we go to all the time. It’s for kids. The clientele is children.

We go in and we are waiting for a table and she grabs some gummies that are boy part gummies. I was horrified.

…P-e-n-i-s gummies, and they look like it. I said, “oh, wow, those aren’t Swedish fish.” She was holding the box and I was like, ok, wow, we don’t need that right now. Because I thought if I said, “Put that back,” and then she’s going to say, “What is this?” And I really didn’t want to have that conversation. I was like, why are they selling these here? This is for kids. And then it was on the cover of a magazine that I’m giving her those gummies.

I was like, “Oh my god, no.” We put them back.
The show airs Thursday, if you want to see the (awkward!) convo for yourself.  I don’t know, if it were me, I’d definitely be laughing because you have to! And I think Katie is, and was (at least nervously). But, no one’s taking photos of me and plastering it on magazine covers for all to judge…. Thoughts?
