Actress Brooke Shields has an ally in her war of words with Tom Cruise over her use of prescriptions drugs to treat postpartum depression: New Jersey's acting governor.
"Tom Cruise knows as much about postpartum depression as I do about acting, and he should stick to acting and not talk about women who need help," said Richard J. Codey, whose wife, Mary Jo, has struggled with the illness.
Cruise criticized Shields for taking antidepressants, and became particularly passionate about the issue in an interview on "Today." Cruise is a follower of Scientology, which teaches that psychiatry is a destructive pseudo-science.
Cruise said there was no such thing as chemical imbalances that need to be corrected with drugs, and that depression could be treated with exercise and vitamins. Shields has called that "a disservice to mothers everywhere."

I never thought I'd be on a side of an argument with Dick Codey and Brooke Shields, but they're right. Cruise is scum.
I don't give a %$#@!
I love it when Hollywierd freaks feed on each other.
Perhaps in Tom Cruise' world, vitamins and exercise would cure that dementia.
Sound to me like Mary Jo Codey has problems. Doctor shopping for drugs is illegal, just ask Rush.
That statement is incomplete. Obviously, Richard J. Codey, Acting Governor of New Jersey, meant to say "Tom Cruise knows as much about postpartum depression as I do about being Acting Governor".
Cruise needs to up his vitamins and exercise.
