Today in celebrity gossip: Humiliating photos of Channing Tatum, Kate Moss, and Shailene Woodley wearing clothing; Oprah's got a Rae Dawn Chong problem; and Shirley MacLaine remains 100% sane and normal.

Will the humiliation never cease? Just when Hollywood celebrities can't get anymore shameless or audacious they go and do something as appalling as wear clothing. First Kate Moss was seen in public wearing a skirt. Then Channing Tatum was spotted wearing clothes that did not remain in style ten years later. Most shocking, disappointing, and heartbreaking of all: Both The Descendants' Shailene Woodley and Ender's Game's Hailee Steinfeld wore vaguely similar, ordinary white shirts with black trousers to a comic book convention attended by over one hundred thousand people. When the French first devised the phrase "faux pas" not even they could have known what an understatement it would become on this day. What were these celebrities thinking?

Whoops, it appears Katie Holmes' canonization into post-Scientology sainthood just hit a speed bump. We all knew the former Mrs. Cruise's escape from that particular organization entailed secrecy, cunning, and the kind of bravery not seen since the movie The Brave One or the band The Bravery or even the Atlanta Braves, but it appears that back when she was a full-fledged Hubbard-mother, Holmes behaved prettttttty shadily. Pretty shadily indeed. According to whispers from people claiming inside knowledge of the recent Scientology defection of Saved by the Bell actress Leah Remini, Katie Holmes once totally narc'd on Leah Remini to the church elders. The initial incident had something to do with Leah Remini trying to sit by her friend at TomKat's wedding or something dumb like that. But still. Katie Holmes sat down at her desk, took out her favorite pen, clicked the button for purple ink, and wrote the shadiest of shady missives throwing Remini under the bus, into the gutters, and straight into hell (Clearwater, Fla.) for which Remini was then billed $300,000. So, uh, ouch. Glad both ladies are safely out of that place, but it sounds like somebody owes somebody a Shirley Temple. [Radar]
