Inside Scientology’s Audition Process To Find A Wife For Tom Cruise

  • I went to, like, five different magazine/book stores this weekend in search of Vanity Fair‘s October issue, after seeing that their cover story is about the audition process Scientology used to eventually find Katie Holmes for Tom Cruise. I had alwaysknown that such a process occurred  (being that I am an amateur Scientology expert), but did not know that a woman named Nazanin Boniadi (right) was selected prior to Holmes and that she actually dated Cruise for a few months before failing to pass muster. The issue isn’t on stands yet, but Vanity Fair‘s website has a preview and I’ll be writing more about it ASAP! [Vanity Fair]
  • And director Paul Haggis, a former Scientologist currently on the outs with the church, has confirmed that the Church extensively audited Boniadi as part of their audition process and that she was “told to lose her braces, her red highlights and her boyfriend.” Squee! I love this shit so much! [Us Weekly]
  • Naturally, Tom Cruise is calling the Vanity Fair story a bunch of lies. [Radar Online] Keep reading »

Kristen Stewart Driving Robert Pattinson To Scientology

It’s no surprise Scientology has taken a beating with the Tom Cruise divorce debacle but is the secretive religion looking to update its image with a younger, hotter actor, someone along the lines of Robert Pattinson? Scientology insiders say Kirstie Alley has been hanging with her downtrodden neighbor and comforting him ever since Kristen Stewart smashed his heart into countless pieces and is cajoling him with tales of being the next Tom Cruise or John Travolta. Run Robert run!

An eyewitness told the National Enquirer that Kirstie’s white Lexus was parked outside Rob’s house on July 25 – around the time he reportedly dumped Kristen. The car eventually left later that afternoon and went straight to Scientology’s Celebrity Centre in Hollywood. Read more…

MORNING QUICKIES
Paul Thomas Anderson's Scientology Movie?
  • Jessica is running late so I’m doing Quickies, which means that I get to make the first item about Scientology! So, in case it wasn’t blatantly obvious, an ex-Scientologist analyzes the trailer for “The Master” and confirms that, yeah, Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest is definitely all about the early days of L. Ron Hubbard’s Scientology. The film stars Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix and looks amaaaazing. [The Daily Beast]
  • As you might expect, Scientology’s prince, Tom Cruise, “has issues” with the film. [NYPost]
  • Speaking of Scientologists, here are pics of newlyweds Giovanni Ribisi and Agyness Deyn makin’ out! [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

Meet Scientologist Yolanda Pecoraro, Tom Cruise’s Next Gal Pal?

The Church of Scientology just gets creepier and creepier: Now insiders tell the National Enquirer that Scientology bigwigs will probably choose Tom Cruise’s next lady friend, Radar reports. “Tom’s next marriage will be inside the church,” says one expert. The main contender is Yolanda Pecoraro, 27, whom Radar refers to as a “Latin beauty.” A former Scientologist calls her a “Scientology princess,” noting that she was raised in the church, and rumor has it she even dated Tom back in 2004—there’s at least one photo of them together (with the Beckhams, no less), and Cruise supposedly paid for Pecoraro to attend Scientology courses at the Hollywood Celebrity Centre.

Laura Ann DeCrescenzo, a former Scientologist who left the church in 2004, has filed a lawsuit against the Church of Scientology for allegedly forcing her to have an abortion when she was a teen. According to Radar Online, DeCrescenzo was recruited to the religion in New Mexico at age nine and moved away from her family to work for the Church in Los Angeles as a member of the Sea Org at age 12 . Her education apparently did not progress past the 7th grade while working at the church, contrary to what Scientologists had promised her family when she moved away from them. She married at age 16 and then at age 17, she became pregnant; she claims the church did not want her to have a child because they wanted get get more labor out of her. DeCrescenzo’s lawsuit alleges the church threatened to fire her from her job, kick her out of her home, and break her apart from her husband if she didn’t terminate the pregnancy. Additionally, DeCrescenzo’s lawsuit accused the religion of false imprisonment, as  the Church of Scientology reportedly restricted her access to TV, Internet, and the telephone, and opened and read all of her mail.
