The great thing is, whatever you current obsession — no matter how vaguely random — there’s probably a book to satiate it. Here are but 10 topics you might be obsessing over and mostly recent/new books to satisfy your craving.

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.

7 Places Katie Holmes Can Go Now That She’s Free From Scientology

The ink wasn’t even dry on Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s divorce agreement before she’d registered with a local NYC Catholic Church as their newest parishioner. Now that she’s free of the Church of Scientology, Katie can worship where she pleases! There are other activities Katie is free to do now that Cruise, David Miscavige, the ghost of L. Ron Hubbard, and the threat of disconnection don’t have their hooks in her any longer. See a smiling Holmes enjoying herself in our newly created Katie Fancy & Freed meme in the slideshow above…

Tom Cruise Can Move Inanimate Objects — With His Mind!

  • So, Tom Cruise, as you know, is a Scientologist. He is also an OT VII (OT stands for Operating Thetan and, oh for the love of Xenu, I will just explain in another post) and OT VIIs, according to Scientology, have magical powers. For example, as an OTVII, Tom Cruise is, supposedly, telekinetic. Yeah. If you see Suri floating through the sky one day, now you know how and why. [Celeb Dirty Laundry]
  • Here is an adorable photo of Violet Affleck walking her dog. But even more adorable to me is that Violet appears to wear Transitions Lenses, those prescription glasses that darken into sunglasses when you go outside. Just like Al Pacino! [Celebrity Baby Scoop]

Hitched: On The Fairy Tale Ending That Katie Holmes Will Not Have

5 questions about Scientology that the Church does NOT want you to ask. Read More »

What are you doing right now? Is it after noon? Actually, I don’t care if it is or not: go pour yourself a glass of something cold and boozy and join me in a toast to Katie Holmes, free woman.

I don’t much keep up with celebrity goings-on, certainly not beyond the two-month-old Us Weekly rags at the nail salon. I couldn’t pick Selena Gomez out of a line-up of young brunette actresses; I am unsure how many Kardashian family members there are. But Joey? From ”Dawson’s Creek”? We have a connection that cannot be broken; a connection forged when she sang that song from Les Mis on the show and I was all, Tell Dawson you love him, girl! Or was it Pacey? I didn’t watch very closely.

So perhaps my connection to Katie Holmes is tenuous. Fine. Still, I found myself actually excited when I heard she was divorcing Tom Cruise. And then I was even more excited when I read about how she went about it like a classy divorce-bomb-dropping spy bailing off the S.S. Fucking Weirdo — using a burner cellphone, having secret lawyers in three states on call, having her negotiation terms ready to roll. Keep reading »

I never thought I’d see the day where I’d announce on my Facebook wall (as that’s where I express my most passionate opinions): “Katie Holmes, you’re my fucking hero.” As an enthusiastic observer of all things Scientology, I pretty much assumed Katie Holmes was lost to the world, forever in the clutches of husband Tom Cruise, the ghost of L. Ron Hubbard, David Miscavige (the Church’s current leader), and the Church of Scientology itself. Oh sure, Tom and Katie would no doubt call it quits someday (I never for a second believed that union was based on love and sexual desire and real commitment), but Katie struck me as the type to go quietly, like Nicole Kidman before her. Well, Katie, I was wrong about you. You are the biggest suppressive person (SP) the Church of Scientology has ever known. You have attracted more attention to their nefarious practices than anyone before and for that, girlfriend, you are a bad ass. Here are five specific reasons why. Keep reading »
