Mike Rinder’s New Book Gets Into How Scientology Dealt With The John Travolta Gay Rumors, Tried To Woo David Beckham, And Alienated Tom Cruise From Nicole Kidman
Mike Rinder, former high-level Scientologist and co-host of the A&E docuseries, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, has a new book. It’s called A Billion Years: My Escape From a Life in the Highest Ranks of Scientology, and it promises to that expose “the dark, dystopian truth about Scientology.” Fun! The book just came out, so there are a bunch of headlines making the rounds today.
For example, those John Travolta gay rumors. 67-year-old Mike claims that, back in the day, he was chatting to John in a hotel suite when a male masseur walked in the room and kissed John on the mouth. Whoops! Then there’s the failed wooing of David and Victoria Beckham. Apparently, Tom Cruise wanted David to be in Scientology so bad that he built a soccer field. But it didn’t work. Whomp, whomp! Finally, there’s the Nicole Kidman stuff. Mike claims that David Miscavige felt Tom was pulling away from the cult while filming Eyes Wide Shut with Nicole in London, so he sent one of his cronies to “audit” Tom. The audit drew Tom back into Scientology and created a distance between him and his wife. Obviously, Scientology denies all of Mike’s allegations. They tell Page Six that he’s an “inveterate liar.” Google says “inveterate” means: “chronic, deep-seated.” So that’s two words Scientology has taught me: “inveterate” and “glib.” Continue reading
Current anti-Scientology warrior Leah Remini and current Scientology defender Kirstie Alley got into it. This all started when Kirstie said on Twitter that she doesn’t know what’s real and what’s fake about Russia’s attack on Ukraine and she won’t be commenting anymore. Her former Dancing With The Stars partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, already dragged her and now it was Leah’s turn. Spoiler Alert: Leah was much ruder.
A Judge Ruled That The Woman Suing The Church Of Scientology Must Participate In “Religious Arbitration”
The Church of Scientology is responsible for some of the worst crimes against humanity, the least of which is the staggering number of different fake titles for Top Gun: Maverick I’ve had to come up with in the past year. And I’ve actually had it pretty easy compared to Valerie Haney who filed a lawsuit against the organization last June charging the COS with a number of crimes including “kidnapping, stalking, human trafficking, false imprisonment, libel, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress,” (via Us Weekly) or what Scientologists call “Tuesday.” Unfortunately for Valerie, according to The Hollywood Reporter, her case has just been ordered into “religious arbitration” in accordance with “departure documents” she claims she signed “under threat of imprisonment,” “in a room with only Scientology’s general counsel and a man armed with a gun.” These motherfuckers.
Scientologist turned anti-Scientology warrior Leah Remini dropped the first season of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath back in November 2016. Since then, she’s gone from “Doug’s hot wife from The King of Queens” to the reason why there are so many aggressively crushed E-meters handles in David Miscavige’s office. Scientologists hate Leah and Mike Rinder, former Scientology executive and her co-host on the show, for trying to take them down. Well, Scientologists have a reason to celebrate today and it’s because Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath will officially end on August 26th.
I didn’t think she had it in her to go all the way but damn, Leah Remini done gone and straight up MURDERED a Scientologist. Can you believe it? Well, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Leah may not actually have held the knife in her hand, but she’s still 100% to blame for a stabbing that occurred outside of the Scientology headquarters near Sydney, Australia last week. But rather than get the authorities (further) involved by making a formal accusation, CO$ sent A&E president Paul Buccieri a strongly worded letter accusing her and her show Scientology and the Aftermath of inciting the murder with her words. Like she’s Brooklyn’s own lady Charlie Manson.
Mike Rinder and Leah Remini are going all in with their support of fellow ex-cultist and accused sexual assaulter Paul Haggis. In a joint statement posted to Mike Rinder’s blog, the anti-Scientology Scooby gang of two use the old “he’s a good man” argument, and added that the charges against Paul might be a deep pocketed Scientology hit job.
