Is Tom Cruise's new girlfriend Latina?

The ink on his divorce papers is barely dry, but it looks like Tom Cruise might already be moving on from Katie Holmes--and on to a Latina! Apparently, Cruise has set his eyes on Yolanda Pecoraro, a half-Nicaraguan actress who has remained largely unknown…until now.


Pecoraro is also a devout Scientologist and has carried out past relationships with other church members. Her experience with the religion is reportedly making Scientology experts believe she is the ideal match for Cruise, particularly since they say Cruise is looking for his next wife to already be a member of the church.

But if they are dating, this apparently wouldn't be the first time. In his book Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography, Andrew Morton wrote about Pecoraro and Cruise first meeting and becoming a couple back in 2004. According to RadarOnline, the book even contains a picture of Cruise, Pecoraro and his famous friends, David and Victoria Beckham, at a soccer game.

Jeez, if these rumors are true, that would be one fast recovery! Personally, I hope that they're not. I mean, it's only been a couple of weeks! Cruise should be focusing on himself and his kids right now, not diving headfirst into another relationship. But I'm not putting too much faith in the reports, especially since at this point, it seems like new (and increasingly bizarre) gossip about Cruise and his Scientology buddies seems to sprout with every passing minute!

Still, I can't say I'd be surprised if Cruise's next girlfriend was a Latina…hey, we are awesome.
