Katie Holmes may be saving her money now that she's divorced from megastar and millionaire Tom Cruise
Actress willing to do paid appearances, but it won't come cheap, source says.

Is Katie Holmes headed for the poorhouse? Short answer: no. But the actress may soon be “stockpiling” Benjamins now that she doesn’t have Tom Cruise’s $250M fortune to fall back on, according to a well-placed source.
The insider says Holmes’ “people are putting the word out she’s willing to do paid appearances and just seeing what opportunities come to her.” But she won’t come cheap: Although a second source can’t say what it’ll cost to book Holmes, 33 — rates vary per event — “[an appearance] could be around six figures.”
A source close to Holmes’ agency confirms, “She was approached by Hilfiger for a Fashion Show appearance and she passed (and) she was approached by a liquor company and she passed.” The Holmes source says companies see Holmes as more approachable since her split from Cruise, but she’s not personally involved in any corporate courtships.
“Katie never did this before her split with Tom,” the first insider says. Popping into parties isn’t the only way Holmes could pocket extra cash. “Brands (want) Katie to wear their clothing for money, and then she’ll get photographed in it,” says our first source, who adds at least one retailer already has Holmes in their duds, though our Holmes source isn’t aware of any such deal. Holmes reportedly receives $400,000 a year in child support, along with expenses, for their 6-year-old daughter, Suri, until she turns 18. Not that Holmes will be clipping coupons.
It was announced Thursday the former “Dawson’s Creek” actress will be the first celeb face of Bobbi Brown when the 2013 Spring campaign launches — a deal that will reportedly earn her between $2M and $3M. Wednesday, Holmes shows her Holmes & Yang collection for Fashion Week. A rep for Holmes had no comment.
