Katie Holmes chatted with Ellen DeGeneres for Friday’s show and had to explain to the host why her daughter Suri Cruise was photographed holding X-rated candy.
“Recently, I took her to get ice cream in New York at this place called Serendipity that we go to all the time,” Katie explains on The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing on Friday (via Huffington Post). “It’s for kids. The clientele is children.”
But the candy wasn’t exactly kid-friendly.
“We go in and we are waiting for a table and she grabs some gummies that are boy-part gummies,” Katie says. “I was horrified.”
“They are called p-e-n-i-s gummies and they look like it,” Katie continued. “She was holding the box and I was like ‘okay, 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.”
We don’t blame her for that!
“I was like, why are they selling these here? This is for kids,” the mom explained. “And then it was on the cover of a magazine that I’m giving her those gummies.”
