Krustie Alley Scraping The Barrel For A Few Bucks…. Kelly Preston Tried To Convert Charlie Sheen To Scientology

This morning Kyle and Jackie O had an exclusive chat with Charlie Sheen, and he opened up about a number of topics.

One topic that did come up is the topic of Scientology.

Jackie asked him if any Hollywood celeb had ever tried to lure him into the religion.

‘Yes, actually. There was one – and she’s a dear friend of mine. It’s Kelly Preston, who’s married to John Travolta.’

‘They’ve been together forever, they’ll probably end up that way.’

The conversation then quickly turned to John Travolta and the rumours surrounding his sexuality.

‘Do you think those rumours about him and the massage parlours is true?’ Kyle asked.

‘I have a rule now, if I wasn’t there, I can’t possibly harbour an opinion.’

‘People are always so up on my shit, so when I’m asked about other people, I stop and think to myself, ‘Charlie, were you there?’ and if I wasn’t, I reign it in.

random check-in on Krustie’s twittering 


not exactly the A-team is it?

…. hmmm, looks like Krustie has been ordered to bang the drum for her cult…

…considering Krustie blocks anybody on “the other side” then by her very own definition she must be totally batshit insane

….this looks like that ridiculous scientology purification cocktail, Dr Krustie is not a good look for her…

….ha, ha, ha, …no, seriously – ha, ha, ha…

so, Network TV hasn’t ever invited a “real scientologist” and she’s going to put this bang to rights?… grab your popcorn for the car crash this is going to be!

… sooner or later you can always rely on the inner Krustie making an appearence 

eh?

for “truth” read “lies”

…on the other hand maybe she’s going to actually appear on Leah’s 2nd series?!

What i notice here is another testimony on how the Scientology mindset may or may not still influence our way of thinking and reaction to the surrounding environment. That is really hard to figure out, what is considered normal and what is not, when you basically have been trained to be a sociopath for a very long time.

Leah Remini roars back with Scientology and the Aftermath season 2 preview

POSTED ON

A+E

This story originally appears in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands now, or available here. Don’t forget to subscribe for more exclusive interviews and photos.

After dedicating more than three decades of her life to Scientology, ex-parishioner Leah Remini had one mission in creating her 2016 A&E show: to publicly expose what she alleged were abusive church policies — and inspire others to do the same. (In a statement, the church said all “allegations are false and are tired rumors stemming from the same small group of anti-Scientologists.”) Now Remini talks to EW about the series’ impact and what to expect from season 2, which premieres later this year.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When you left the church in 2013, did you plan to speak out against it?
LEAH REMINI: 
No. You can leave quietly, and they won’t go after you or your family. If you start to speak out, the church goes after you…. I couldn’t just sit around watching people get bullied.

Season 1 of the show, which alleged extreme church practices, seemed to get people talking about Scientology like never before.
People have been talking about it, for decades.… [They] were just making fun of a belief system, and that’s not what this is about. You’ve never heard me ridicule or make fun of the Xenu story and what Scientologists truly believe.

At the end of the first season, you alluded to a legal campaign you were mounting. Will season 2 get into that? Yes! In my heart I believed the FBI would be sitting in a war room like they do on TV. They’d be going, “Damn it, that’s it! We’re going to raid the place, we’re going to run in and save all these people and we’re shutting this s— down.” But that is not real life. [Scientology has] tax-exempt status, so you can’t just run in and say, “This is not a religious organization.” They’ve met the religious requirements on paper, so we need more time to effect change. Several law firms have contacted [me and show consultant/costar Mike Rinder], and we’re moving forward.

What else can you tell us about the new season?
I didn’t foresee a season 2. I didn’t want to do another season. But the response from the organization and the response from parishioners — particularly celebrity parishioners — has proven to me that we need to continue to tell these stories.

Do you think legal action is necessary? You don’t think they’ll come to a moral awakening?
Morally they believe they’re doing the right thing. They believe that what L. Ron Hubbard says…is being followed to a tee. I know that because I was a Scientologist for years. There is no thinking for yourself in Scientology; the policy says what it says, and [Hubbard’s word] is drilled into you from the moment you read Dianetics. The only way to expose what’s happening is to continue to tell stories. [Church leader] David Miscavige isn’t going to have a moment.

Has anyone from the church reached out to you to appear in season 2?
No, and I want to be clear about that: I’m not trying to turn people. We don’t need to get people to come out; we’re hearing from people who haven’t spoken before. They’ve been brainwashed into believing they could do nothing. They were told there’d be heavy repercussions if they went to the police or the FBI. [The church has called Remini’s allegations a “rehash of stale, long disproven claims.”]

Because Scientology stretches so far into Hollywood, were you afraid that doing this show would impact your career?
I think it’s just the opposite. I’ve been embraced even more by Hollywood, and I continue to work. [Editor’s note: Remini is currently filming the NBC pilot What About Barb?] As far as acting is concerned, if my career was affected by my speaking out against abuses, then I’m good with it. I don’t need to work in a town that’s complicit with these kinds of abuses.

How can people get involved if they want to?
It could be a simple call to your councilman, writing to the IRS, making noise about it, or encouraging people to come forward. People feel like they should do more, but they don’t realize how much they’ve already done by supporting us and supporting the people who’ve been on our show.

Do you think the current political climate makes all of this even more significant?
Absolutely. If we’re not happy, politics aside, what can we do about it? People are doing what they can, and that’s a great
thing. If you can write a letter, do it! If you can simply call a congressman, do it! In this climate, often people feel they don’t have a voice or power to do something, whether it’s [in response to] a cult, an abusive relationship, or politics. A docuseries like this makes people feel that there’s hope that anyone can do something to effect change. I hope to inspire people to take action. What can you do to make you feel that you’re not nothing?

 Mike Rinder’s thoughts on this

I am cheating — this is not really a “post,” I am simply directing you to read this new article in Entertainment Weekly.

I am traveling which has hindered my blogging abilities.

And also, I saw a dozen fake twitter accounts sent out tweets about me this morning, so I figured they must be going nuts about something. I checked the news and this story is at the top of the Scientology newsfeed on Google. I figured this was the cause of their latest bout of ad hominem bleating, so it deserved wider coverage.

It’s my middle finger of the morning to the evil empire.

Someone just sent me this. I have no idea where it comes from, though it appears it might be on a Facebook page.

These people are SOOOO unreal. They actually believe they can make an impact if they “cut the subscription”??? What, 50, 100 or even 1000 people? And to get rid of A&E they would have to cancel their basic cable package. You cannot just stop “A&E” — and there are tens of thousands of people switching to “no cable” and just using streaming services/computer (which is why you see all cable channels, including A&E putting content on their webpages).

They are worse that just naive. They have apparently been turned stupid.

How Scientology keeps its secrets, and puts journalists ‘on a par with sexual perverts’

The Church of Scientology is legendary for keeping a tight lid on its inner workings. In fact, its current leader, David Miscavige, hasn’t done a TV interview in 25 years.

Still, for British journalist/documentarian Louis Theroux, who makes his living profiling the people living in the margins of society, Scientology was the, as he put it, “Holy Grail” of stories. That led to him making the documentary “My Scientology Movie” (currently in theaters, On Demand, and iTunes), which follows him as he travels to Los Angeles to investigate what goes on at the Church of Scientology’s headquarters.

But it was quite a challenge at first to make a movie on the church with no access to anyone inside it.

“In 2002, we went through the proper channels and my producer at the time and I took a tour of the Celebrity Centre and then it all fizzled out,” Theroux said, talking to Business Insider in a Facebook Live interview. “Eight years went by.”

Theroux couldn’t figure out how to do his kind of storytelling on the topic.

“I’m not just a reporter, I’m an experiencer of what’s going on and we weren’t going to do a backward story on how Scientology came into existence. It was to be an immersive piece about what it means to eat, breath, sleep Scientology,” he said.

It also wasn’t any help that Scientology has been hostile to journalists trying to glean insight about the organization, especially in recent years as questions about the church have ramped up. It has retaliated against projects like the HBO documentary “Going Clear” with smear campaigns.

“They don’t let people in, they don’t let reporters inside. And they view reporters as being what they call 1.1 on the Tone Scale, meaning on a par with sexual perverts,” Theroux said, referring to the scale in Scientology that assesses a human’s state.

“We just needed something to get the engine of the film going,” the movie’s director John Dower said of the block.

Then Theroux, Dower, and the film’s producer Simon Chinn came up with an idea: retell the parts that Scientology was keeping from them.

“We came up with the idea of using actors to do reenactments of life inside Scientology,” Theroux said.

“The first day of doing the auditions we had no idea if it was going to work and it kind of did,” Dower said. They immediately found actor Andrew Perez to play the role of Miscavige.

They then brought on ex-Scientology executive Marty Rathbun to give insight on camera to Theroux and the actors doing the reenactments.

The movie ends up being the type of first-person storytelling Theroux is known for, even if it took extra work to get there. In fact, he even faced physical threats for his inquires into Scientology.

“It’s a film within a film,” Theroux said. “In life the line between performance and our real selves isn’t always clear.”
