KATFIGHT: TOM'S WOMEN READY TO DO BATTLE

By MICHAEL GLYNN

It looks like an all-out family feud in the Tom Cruise clan as ex-wife Nicole Kidman and bride-to-be Katie Holmes get ready to draw their Top Guns for a vicious catfight.

"Tension has been building up for a long time," reveals an insider, "and now with both of their respective summer weddings inching closer, it's ready to boil over."

Insiders say Kidman has been secretly steaming ever since the Dawson's Creek cutie won Tom's heart in April 2005 and started playing mommy to Isabella, 13, and Connor, 11, the children Tom and Nicole adopted as infants.

"I think Nicole is livid with Katie for monopolizing her children," says the insider. "She feels like she doesn't get enough time with Bella and Connor as it is. Nicole is fiercely protective and she loathes the fact that Katie is taking on the role of mother to them.

"To Nicole it feels like Katie is not so subtly nudging her out of the picture."
