The media frenzy about the birth of the TomKitten continued to swirl.

Toledo's Katie Holmes was the lead item on last night's episode of Entertainment Tonight TV program. A report suggested she might be having Tom Cruise's baby at Toledo Hospital yesterday.

Not so, says an unidentified Holmes family member. Katie was at her home and not in Toledo. Not only had she not delivered, she was not in labor last night. When asked whether Katie would give birth in Toledo and whether her mom, Kathy Holmes, was with her, the family member declined comment. A story circulating that the two bought a house on Ridgewood Road in Ottawa Hills was bogus, the relative said.

Gossip columnists have been spinning tales about the parents-to-be's unborn child and when, where, and if there will be a wedding. One after the other claimed the duo's mile-wide smiles vanished when the cameras stopped clicking.

People Magazine caught up with a source close to the couple recently who said Katie was "glowing and she's looking fine." This came close on the heels earlier this year after reports of an impending separation.

But Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes aren't splitting. That's the story from Tom's attorney, who said his client had pondered suing Life & Style magazine over the story that caused all the trouble-in-paradise gossip.

On Tuesday, Tom and Katie were in Sunnyvale, Calif. Tom spoke to employees at Yahoo headquarters. Katie appeared briefly onstage, then sat in the audience.

Gloria Estefan, who was temporarily paralyzed in a tour-bus accident 16 years ago, is donating $1 million for the creation of a human clinical trials program at the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis.

The gift, announced by the singer and her producer husband Emilio Estefan, is targeted to position Miami Project scientists to move quickly toward human trials as promising research is discovered.

The 1990 accident in Pennsylvania broke Estefan's back, but she recovered.

She was the lead singer of the Miami Sound Machine before a successful solo career.

Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler will undergo surgery this week for an undisclosed medical condition, forcing the band to cancel the remaining dates of its North American tour.

The band's publicist saidthat Tyler was "doing fine" but declined to elaborate on his condition.

Ice Cube loves cars - especially his new red Mercedes. But that's not the only reason he's hosting Spike TV's AutoRox awards in Las Vegas.

Cube will also perform on the show, doing two new tracks from his upcoming album, "Laugh Now, Cry Later." The program will be taped April 7 and broadcast on April 18.

"I thought it was a good opportunity to perform on TV and get the message out there," he said during a chat in his office at Cube Vision studios.

The rapper-actor will debut two singles: "Chrome and Paint" and "Why We Thugs." The album will be released June 6.

AutoRox recognizes cool cars in categories including Hottest Exotic and Best Luxury Car.
