WAYS TOM HAS CHANGED What do you get after a major health scare in 2018, followed not much later by a once-in-a-century pandemic lockdown? Tom gave it some thought. Here, he tells you about his changes.

Have you gotten your COVID vaccine? Tell Tom how you feel:


DO YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW IF TOM IS YOUR FATHER? Tom says, emphatically, "NO!" has been sold to private equity group Blackstone. Who knows what they'll do with all that genetic information? One thing's for sure: don't knock on Tom's door!

It all started with this tweet.

TOM'S EVOLUTION DURING HIS ONE-YEAR LOCKDOWN Through this COVID epidemic, Tom has had plenty of time for reflection. Good news: that wasn't depression he was experiencing. It was something else. Something good and natural.

What was your experience? Tell Tom:


FAT BUT FAT Tom says that American gals keep trying to justify being lazy and eating like pigs. And, he says, women's media keep reinforcing this "fat but fit" myth.

Cosmopolitan magazine wants the gals in line in the supermarket to eat, eat, EAT!
