If it's true that Tom and Katie have in fact split — or that they're imminently set to do so, with plans to drag it out over a period for both PR reasons and gestation reasons — the question that remains for the a country of brokenhearted fans is, Who can we blame? One Gawker reader writes in with an excellent suggestion:
Is Oprah going to drag Tom's ass on the show again to give him a severe tongue lashing about how he deceived her and the entire country? Make him apologize for jumping on the couch and admit he is a liar? Have Nan Talese come on and pretend she's not culpable? It's Nan's fault.
It is; it's always Nan's fault.
