Katie Holmes explains Suri's 'adult' gummy bears
By Ann Oldenburg
Katie Holmes stopped by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" yesterday, for an interview airing on Friday, and while the two were talking about "The Kennedys," the conversation turned to daughter Suri and the constant media scrutiny of her.
The 32-year-old actress told Ellen about her daughter Suri being photographed holding a box of Penis Gummies.
"Recently, I took her to get ice cream in New York at this place called Serendipity that we go to all the time. It's for kids. The clientele is children. We go in and we are waiting for a table and she grabs some gummies that are boy part gummies. I was horrified," says Holmes.
Ellen asks, "Boy part?"
"P-e-n-i-s," says Katie, spelling it out, "gummies. I said, 'oh, wow, those aren't Swedish fish' . . They are called p-e-n-i-s gummies and they look like it. She was holding the box and I was like ok, wow we don't need that right now. Because I thought if I said put that back and then she's going to say, what is this? And I really didn't want to have that conversation. I was like, why are selling these here? This is for kids. And then it was on the cover of a magazine that I'm giving her those gummies."
"I was like, 'Oh my god, no.' We put them back."
Said Ellen: "So now people think you're feeding your child p-e-n-i-s gummy bears..."
