One of the first things I noticed when I became friends with Karen on Facebook and joined The Outer Banks is that she is outright obsessed with Tom Cruise.
Karen posts about Tom Cruise in the Outer Banks regularly. Usually they are obviously exaggerated tabloid accounts that in a twist of irony are refuted later by Karen’s second Kept Man Tony Ortega.
Karen also encourages the others in the group to be obsessed with Cruise. Not a day goes by where a post about him isn’t made by somebody.
Friends who still have accounts in The Outer Banks have told me that Karen and Jeffrey have posted no less than 9 stories about Tom Cruise in October 2016. Her current obsession is mocking Cruise’s recent appearance and speculating on the cause of his apparent weight gain. In an even more absurd twist of irony Karen apparently had the gall to suggest that maybe he looks like that because of plastic surgery.
I’m honestly shocked that she would want to go there. I’m sure I don’t have to explain why.
