I would like to declare a new genre of music: Scientology soul. Hey, it could be the new Christian rock. Apparently, the Church of Scientology made this music video for the song “We Stand Tall” in 1990 and it features many a Scientologist of note, from John Travolta to David Miscavige. Heck, it even… More »
Is Oprah a Scientologist? Just Googling that question returns 127,000 results, so we know we’re not alone in asking.
On the heels of the announcement that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith would be guests on one of Oprah’s final shows, three things popped into my head: 1) random! 2) are they getting a reality… More »
It appears Lindsay Lohan may be turning to Scientology to deal with her alcohol and drug problems. John Travolta has apparently taken the young star under his wing, after convincing the producers of “Gotti: Three Generations” to cast her.
An insider told the National Enquirer, “Even though producers were hesitant to hire Lindsay because… More »
What would it take for Joaquin Phoenix to come out of retirement?
Despite speculation earlier this year that Phoenix would resume his once-hot acting career with a film adaptation of ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ (the 2010 novel by Seth Grahame-Smith), the actor is now being linked to a much more controversial project.
And… More »
At only two months old, John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s new baby Ben was already flying planes back in January. Since then he’s taught himself the piano and will probably move on to advanced military strategies if I’m reading this right. “Extra” reports:
“The baby was playing this tiny piano we got him, and… More »
“Silent birth is basically just no words as much as possible. If you need to moan, if you need to cry out … of course that’s normal … But, it’s just bringing them in, in as peaceful and gentle a way as possible … L. Ron Hubbard found that the single source of aberration,… More »
Not that we ever thought particularly good things about the Church of Scientology and their Xenu-fearing ways, but this new report from the St. Petersburg Times is particularly disturbing. While members of the Sea Org—the highest order of Scientology whose members supposedly sign an employment contract for one billion years—have been allowed to marry… More »
I didn’t know that Jason Lee is a Scientologist until this morning, and now that I know this little tidbit of info about him, my crush that developed after watching “Big Trouble” has died. But that hasn’t stopped me from being totally enthralled by the “tell all” interview his ex-wife, Carmen Llywelyn, gave to The… More »
“I just don’t…. This is just so not… I’m here to publicize ‘Nine.’ If I was here to do an exposé on myself then I’d be like, ‘Let’s go’, but I have no interest in discussing any of that.”– Nicole Kidman in response to an interviewer who asked her about Scientology and referred to the… More »
Watch out Tom Cruise. The Australian government might try to declassify Scientology as a religion and reclassify it as a criminal organization. In a speech he gave to the Aussie Senate on Tuesday night, Senator Nick Xenophon claimed that the church was guilty of torture, forced imprisonment, and coerced abortion, embezzlement and blackmail. He unearthed… More »
Like many of you, I have long been curious about what kind of malarkey and tomfoolery is going on inside the cult Church of Scientology. What’s up with the uniforms? The audits with the weird metal rods? Xenu? And most importantly … is Tom Cruise really an extra-terrestrial? I’ve often found myself tempted to sneak… More »
This weekend, “Nightline” ran a special on everyone’s favorite topic, the insanity of the Church of Scientology. The whole thing was actually pretty boring. (Martin Bashir interviews drive me crazy. Why does he insist on doing the crinkled brow, “I’m really listening to you” thing, followed by repeating what the person just said with… More »
For as long as John Travolta has been a Scientologist, the media has been making fun of him. But the jokes grew bitter six months ago when Travolta’s only son, Jett, died. The 16-year-old, who was believed to be autistic and allegedly wasn’t treated because his religion did not allow it, died of a seizure. More »
For a long time, I was certain the artist formerly known as Prince (or is he Prince again? I get confused) was an alien. Turns out, he’s just a Jehovah’s Witness. After a lifetime of sexy dancing, the 50-something-year-old is in need of a double hip replacement, trading in his raspberry beret for a diamond-encrusted… More »
Tom Cruise is no longer a Hollywood idol. The paparazzi love following him and we enjoy watching his crazy interviews. But I can’t remember the last time I saw one of his new releases. His overworked publicity team has noticed that few non-Scientology people respect Cruise anymore, so they’re trying to improve his “screen-idol status.” More »
Mega movie star and big time Scientology devotee, Tom Cruise, is on “The View” tomorrow in a pre-taped segment in which he discusses Jett Travolta’s recent death and the interest in whether Scientology was a contributing factor.

As I’m sure you’ve already read, John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s 16-year-old son, Jett, died on Friday while the family was vacationing in the Bahamas. Over the weekend, more details came out about the tragic news, though conclusive evidence on what exactly caused Jett’s death with only come after an autopsy is performed today. But… More »
What if Katie Holmes posted homemade videos about her life on YouTube and gave the world a look inside one of the more mysterious marriages in Hollywood?
