               The List : Scientology Secrets


Jan 30, 2011 12:04 AM | By Aubrey Paton

Ricky Gervais's recent gay Scientologist joke has prompted speculation as to whom he was referring to. Once regarded as a cult, the Church of Scientology must surely be the unofficial religion of Hollywood because so many of the A-listers are enthusiastic Dianeticists.

Leading the pack is John Travolta, widely suspected to be the butt of Gervais's joke. Rumours of homosexuality have dogged the Grease star and it's believed he attended several courses in the church to "cure" him of his affliction. When these proved unsuccessful, a marriage was arranged with Kelly Preston, a Scientologist in good standing, to provide him with a "beard".

The late Michael Jackson's marriage to Lisa Marie Presley is said to be another union organised by the church to protect The Gloved One from allegations of sexual dalliance with little boys, and who better to assist than second-generation Lisa, daughter of Elvis and long-term member Priscilla?

Tom Cruise is as famous for his evangelical Scientology as he is for couch-jumping on live TV. His sexual orientation is also open to question but the story that Katy Holmes was artificially inseminated by the cryogenically frozen semen of L Ron Hubbard is probably apocryphal. The Top Gun star is notorious for his hard line adherence to Scientology's curious medical theories, and his criticism of Brooke Shields for taking anti-depressants made media headlines. "In Scientology we have the only successful drug-rehabilitation programme in the world," he bragged.

Kirstie Alley , who was introduced to the faith while in rehab, would agree: "Without Scientology I would be dead," she declared. Instead, she seems to have cross-addicted from cocaine to food. Maybe the time has come for a Dianetics fat farm.

Kelly Preston gave birth in true Scientology fashion last November, in total and complete silence. It's a good bet she was enjoying some strong medication at the time - or was possibly even unconscious. However, silent birth is one of the less off-the-wall strictures imposed by the cult.

Finally, Jenna Elfman is no less wacky in real life than the flakey New Ager she played in Dharma and Greg, the sitcom that shot her to fame. She brought herself and the church into disrepute when she refused to assist in an Aids fund-raiser, explaining that according to her beliefs, "Aids is a state of mind, not a disease".

            Josh Brolin Recalls Watching John Travolta Practice Scientology

February 7, 2011

In addition to Paul Haggis' first-hand account of his experience with the Church of Scientology, Josh Brolin also opens up in the latest New Yorker about his brief flirtation with the religion.

In what Brolin calls a "moment of real desperation," he says he visited the Celebrity Centre and received "auditing"—spiritual counseling.

 He quickly realized Scientology wasn't for him and now wonders what the religion does for star members like Tom Cruise and John Travolta.

"Each has a good head on his shoulders, they make great business decisions, they seem to have wonderful families," Brolin tells the New Yorker. "Is that because they were helped by Scientology?"

Brolin recalls that he once witnessed Travolta practicing Scientology on Marlon Brando at a Los Angeles dinner party.

Brando arrived with a cut on his leg he got after helping a stranded motorist on the Pacific Coast Highway.

After Brando complained he was in pain, Travolta offered to help, saying that he had just reached a new level in Scientology, says Brolin.

He touched Brando's leg and Brando closed his eyes.

"I watched this process going on—it was very physical," Brolin tells the New Yorker. "I was thinking, This is really fucking bizarre! Then, after ten minutes, Brando opens his eyes and says, 'That really helped. I actually feel different!' "

 Travolta's lawyer calls Brolin's account "pure fabrication

WTF ?  Travolta`s lawyer denies Scientology helped someone. ????

              Session Man: Remembering Rolling Stones Piano Great Nicky Hopkins        (1944-1994)

.....................In California, Hopkins became a Scientologist; according to one online source, Hopkins believed it helped him to overcome his various addictions and health issues, which were becoming more of a problem in the 1970s. He reportedly referred to L. Ron Hubbard as “a pioneer in the truest sense of the word,” one who “spent a lifetime researching and developing the only workable technology ever to enable man to become free.” He also claimed that Scientology not only offered the “technology” that literally saved his life but that his “awareness as a spiritual being and my artistic creativity” had “increased beyond measure.” Eventually Hopkins settled in Nashville with his wife Moira, but drugs and alcohol had already done considerable damage to his body. He played music into the 1990s but his health deteriorated rapidly; he passed away at age 50.

              Lisa Marie Presley to move out of England


Submitted by Cerise Negulici on Tue, 03/01/2011 - 16:24

Daughter of renowned rock 'n' role star Elvis Presley, Lisa Marie Presley has finally decided to quit her $12 million estate in England. Her move is a consequence of her failure to adopt country lifestyle, as per reports.

The singer made California her residence after death of her father in 1977. But she sold her ranch for $9 million last year to move to England. But she has changed her mind in a year and decided to back to US and settle there.

She lives with her husband Michael Lockwood. Last year couple shifted to Tunbridge Wells, in Kent, South East England. She chose this place as it's in vicinity to East Grinstead, Sussex. Its the same place where Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard settled in 1959 after moving out from United States.

A source informed The Sun newspaper, "Lisa Marie thought she'd love life in England but simply couldn't settle. She wanted to get away from Hollywood but ended up missing it. Although she enjoyed the scenery in Kent, the lifestyle wasn't for her".

Presley also said to leave LA because of her desire to escape pressure and gossip of Hollywood. She spent only 6 months in England, and now planned to move out of the place along with music producer husband Lockwood and their two year old twin daughters, Harper and Finley. Her $8 million estate in England spawns 90 acre and even has its own lake. House is 11-bedroom. It's not yet clear that whether she has put property on sale.

          Katie Holmes Denies Drugging Up, Brings Hammer Down on Star

Read more: http://au.eonline.com/uberblog/b228676_katie_holmes_denies_drugging_up_brings.html#ixzz1FNySZUfT



The cover blares "Addiction Nightmare—Katie Drug Shocker—The Real Reason She Can't Leave Tom" and  even though the accompanying inside article doesn't explicitly mention actual drug use, Team Holmes is crying foul.

"Star magazine's malicious claims about Katie are untrue, unethical and unlawful," says Holmes lawyer Bert Fields (who has led many a successful litigation on behalf of Cruise). "Not only do they cruelly defame Katie, they play a cheap trick on the public, making ridiculously false claims on the cover unsupported by anything inside.

"Someone should bring a class action to get all buyers their money back."

The actual article says that Holmes has participated in Scientology auditing sessions using an e-meter. The magazine claims the device might trigger the release of  "hormones that cause a pain-killing, mood-elevating effect." A Scientology member is quoted in the story comparing the e-meter to being "like a heroin addict, you want another dose."

But Holmes isn't buying it.

Her lawsuit, first published by The Wrap, and claims that the "vicious lies about the plaintiff, designed to hype the sale of its sleazy tabloid magazine, were calculated to cause severe harm...The cover even created the false impression that, but for plaintiff's nightmare drug addiction, she would 'leave' her husband."

An AMI rep tells E! News the publishing giant hasn't been served with any papers yet, but that editors aren't backing down.

"Star fully stands behind the editorial integrity of what we have published concerning Ms Holmes' controversial use of the Scientology 'e-meter.' The physical effect of the e-meter on its users is a matter of significant public concern and we plan to vigorously defend the suit filed by Ms. Holmes," said the spokesperson.

"Our attorneys look forward to deposing Ms. Holmes about her experiences with Scientology and the e-meter, and expect that the case will be promptly dismissed by the court."

It is on!

MARCH 02, 2011

                  Katie Holmes suing Star over drug addiction story


Star magazine is now fending off a $50 million lawsuit brought by Katie Holmes, who is suing becuase the cover of its Jan. 31 issue implies she's a drug addict. What difference does it make that they were actually talking about her ties to Scientology?

The magazine ran a giant slammer headline that read "Katie DRUG SHOCKER!" and made it look like she was addicted to some horrible drug, then proceeded to write about her consistent use of the Scientology device known as the e-meter. Um, that's not really a drug, guys.

"Of all the fabricated stories that continue to be published about me, this instance is beyond the pale," the actress said in a statement, according to the National Post. "The publisher knew this outrageous story was false and printed it anyway to sell magazines."

Astral Media, which publishes the glossy, stood by its product: "Star fully stands behind the editorial integrity of what we have published concerning Ms. Holmes' controversial use of the Scientology 'e-meter,'" they said in a statement, noting they believed the suit would be dismissed. "The physical effect of the e-meter on its users is a matter of significant public concern and we plan to vigorously defend the suit filed by Ms. Holmes. Many ex-scientologists have testified that the e-meter sessions have mood elevating effects."

We're not lawyers, but calling an electronic device a drug is a pretty big stretch. Well, people are prett loony about their smartphones these days, but that's more stupidity than addiction.

         John Travolta Plans Another Career Ending Movie

John Travolta has career longevity, that’s for sure. Just when you think he’s finished–with stuff like “Battlefield: Earth”–he comes bouncing back with an off the wall hit like “Wild Hogs.” Scientology, gay rumors, toupees, the National Enquirer–it’s all there, but Travolta just bounces along. Now he’s announcing a new film that’s his latest career ender: he’s going to play John Gotti in a film about the dead, disgusting mobster and his living, disgusting son. Yikes. Someone–maybe former comic and husband of Shirley Jones, Marty Ingles; or Jonathan Krane, Travolta’s sometime manager–has convinced Vinnie Barbarino that this will be his “Godfather.” You can hear the pitch–look at what this kind of thing did for Brando! Ahem. A couple of differences. “The Godfather” was put together by a Dream Team, and director by Francis Ford Coppola. “Gotti” is going to be directed by Nick Cassavetes, who’s lacking in the success department. Also, “The Godfather” was a solid bestselling novel by Mario Puzo. It was fiction, so we could distance ourselves from it. The Gotti’s are real, and really horrendous. There’s no upside to this story, no morality tale, and no poetry. The people killed by Gotti had relatives in real life. I can’t wait for that premiere. I guess the main thing for Travolta is that he can lose his wig toward the end. Some movies should not have been made. Recently, “Valkyrie” and “The Beaver” are on that list. Here comes the next one.

                           Jada Pinkett Smith 'not a Scientologist'

Wednesday, April 06, 2011 » 08:33am

Jada Pinkett Smith says she is 'not a Scientologist' and the only thing she believes in is 'love'.

   
   


Jada Pinkett Smith is 'not a Scientologist'.

The 39-year-old actress insists people have 'assumed' she is a member of the sci-fi cult, made popular by Tom Cruise and John Travolta, when in fact the only thing she believes in is 'love'.

Asked about how she reacts to criticism of Scientology, she said: 'Well, I'm not a Scientologist. People make these assumptions, but my religion is love.'

She also revealed she has no intention of persuading her children - who raises children Willow, 10, and Jaden, 12, with her husband Will Smith and is stepmother to his son Trey from a previous relationship - to become part of any religion.

Jada added to Britain's OK! magazine: 'What we focus on in the house is love, giving and serving. I'll leave my kids to decide how they want to explore the idea of love through religion.'

Despite claiming she does not follow the faith, Jada and Will have previously donated $1 million to California's New Village Academy of Calabasas, where pupils are taught different teaching methods including 'Study Technology', which was developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.

The school has previously been the focus of anti-Scientology protests by pressure group Anonymous.
