Katie Holmes got more than she bargained for when she visited a Big Apple ice-cream parlor with 4-year-old daughter Suri. The actress tells talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres that what started as an innocent mommy-and-me day out ended up an X-rated adventure.
"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," Holmes says on Friday's episode of the "Ellen DeGeneres Show." "We go in and we are waiting for a table and she grabs some gummies that are boy-part gummies. I was horrified."
"P-e-n-i-s gummies," Holmes clarifies. "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."
Holmes admits she had no idea the shop carried such controversial candy.
"I was like, why are they selling these here? This is for kids," she says. "And then it was on the cover of a magazine that I’m giving her those gummies!"
