Jason Lee’s Ex-Wife Reveals Secrets About Scientology

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 National Enquirer about Scientology. Find out what she said after the jump. Keep reading »

Quotable: Nicole Kidman Will Not Talk About Xenu

“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 “religion” as a “bullying cult.” Oh please, oh please, someone do an expose so she will talk about it! Watch the video here. [Times Online UK] Keep reading »

Should Scientology Be Classified As A Criminal Organization Instead Of A Religion?

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 letters from an ex-Scientologist, which detailed abuse and violence that happened within the religion, and said that horrors such as forced confinement, torture and abortion, were ordered.

New Scientology Tell-All Reveals Tom Cruise’s Telekinetic Powers

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 inside a Scientology center with a hidden mic and snoop around like Nancy Drew, but my fear of alien abduction is far too strong. Well, no need to wonder anymore. Marc Headly, a former insider at the church, has written a tell-all book, called Blown for Good, about his 15 years of work with Scientology. And folks … you can’t handle the truth. Keep reading »

Scientology Leader Shows His True Crazy On “Nightline”


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 faux shock?) Until minute 3:40 of the clip above, where Bashir asks Scientology mouthpiece Tommy Davis (who runs the Celebrity Centre in Hollywood), “Do you believe that a galactic emperor named Xenu brought his people to earth 75 million years ago and buried them in volcanoes?” Davis gets upset. “I am not going to discuss disgusting perversions of Scientology beliefs that can be found commonly on the internet … If you’re gonna ask me about volcanoes and this kind of thing, I will stand up and walk out.” Which he then does, dramatically throwing off his mic. But wait, I find it interesting that, out of all the nuttiness in that question, he found the part about volcanoes the most insulting? I so don’t get this “religion.” [Gawker] Keep reading »

John Travolta May Be Done With Scientology

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. This devastating blow no doubt changed how the Travoltas think about the church. Rick Ross, an author and lecturer on Scientology told The Daily Mail that, “There have been strong rumors coming out of Scientology that John Travolta is disappointed that the religion was not able to help his son more … It’s led him to question his faith.” Keep reading »

Prince Refuses Hip Replacement ‘Cause It’s Against His Religion. Other Anti-Medicine Celebs.

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 cane. But alas his highness has refused the surgery, citing his religious beliefs as his reason. Evidently, Jehovah’s Witnesses aren’t down with blood transfusions. [Celebitchy] — Or maybe he doesn’t want the doctors to discover his true alien identity? Hmmm.

After the jump, more celebs who have weird…er…unique views on medicine. Keep reading »

The New And Improved Tom Cruise

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.

Jett Travolta: What Happened?

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 here is what we do know:

  • Jett is believed to have had a seizure while he was in the bathroom and hit his head on the bathtub when he fell. It’s not known for sure whether the seizure caused him to fall or if the fall, and hitting his head on the tub, caused him to have the seizure.
