Scientology minder prompts Katie Holmes through first big interview - 2005-07-10
Holmes was chaperoned throughout, as she has been almost constantly since she met Cruise six weeks before he proposed to her at the top of the Eiffel Tower.
Jessica Rodriguez, 29, a senior member of L Ron Hubbard's Church of Scientology, denied that she was "working" with Holmes. "Oh no, we're just best friends. . . Well, Katie has a lot of friends." And how long have you been friends? "Oh, a while," Rodriguez said. "I don't know."
