Searching for the next Mrs Cruise
OK, I’ve decided it was terribly remiss of me to be too fatigued by Scientology madness to report on the new Vanity Fair expose on Tom Cruise. In a nutshell, the story reveals that in 2004, Shelly Miscavige, the wife of Scientology chief David Miscavige, oversaw a top-secret effort to find the next Mrs. Cruise.
Says The Huffington Post: “The search yielded Nazanin Boniadi, an Iranian-born, London-raised actress and Scientologist, who went on to date Cruise from November 2004 until January 2005. According to VF, Boniadi spent the month prior to the courtship being audited every day, and was forced to share personal secrets and details of her sex life with a high-ranking Scientology official.
“The story reports, “Boniadi allegedly was told to lose her braces, her red highlights, and her boyfriend. According to a knowledgeable source, she was shown confidential auditing files of her boyfriend to expedite a breakup. (Scientology denies any misuse of confidential material.) The source says Boniadi signed a confidentiality agreement and was told that if she “messed up” in any way she would be declared a Suppressive Person (a pariah and enemy of Scientology).”
“After a blissful first month, the relationship turned sour when Boniadi’s behavior toward David Miscavige was interpreted by Cruise as disrespectful. Boniadi was later sent to a Scientology Center in Florida, where she made the mistake of confiding in a friend when she was unable to hide her emotional distress –despite having been strictly forbidden to reveal the details of her courtship with Cruise.
“According to Vanity Fair’s source, the friend reported her to Scientology officials. “Boniadi’s punishment was to scrub toilets with a toothbrush, clean bathroom tiles with acid, and dig ditches in the middle of the night. After that she was sent out to sell Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard’s Dianetics on street corners.”
I still like DListed‘s version (minus most of the bile): “After Nicole Kidman’s marriage contract with Tommy was up, Scientology wanted to find the perfect beard wife who’d obey all the laws of L. Ron Hubbard … On the first night of their date, Nazanin, who realized quickly this was an arranged marriage type of situation, stayed in Tommy’s hotel suite, but they didn’t bone … Scientology took away Nazanin’s access to her own checking account and the only form of money she had was a credit card in the name of Tommy’s production company. Every day, Nazanin was audited and had to verbally barf out any negative thoughts she had about Tommy … Tommy never dumped Nazanin himself, but she learned he was done with her when she was moved out of his house and into the Scientology Center in Florida. When she was there, Nazanin told a friend about how she dated Tommy and the friend ratted a bitch out by reporting her to the head crazies at Scientology. Nazanin wasn’t ever supposed to talk about being Tommy’s beard, so they punished her by making her watch Battlefield Earth while completely sober. No, they punished her by making her feed Whoppers toKirstie Alley. If you’ve ever seen a Scientologist with missing fingers and wondered how that happened, you now know how that happened.”
PS Bwahahahaha … in other hilarious news from The Huffington Post: “Lindsay met with Tom before he met Katie,” a source very close to Lindsay Lohan reveals. “At first, she was super excited to work with Tom and thought it was about a role in ‘Mission Impossible.’ It soon became clear that he wasn’t looking for an actress but something very different.”
That would have been gossip gold, can you imagine???
Kristen praises loyalty
Another day, another celebrity magazine cover shoot. This time it’s Kristen Stewart.
Kristen tells UK Vogue: “People expect it to be easy because there you are, out there, doing the thing that you want and making lots of money out of it. But, you know, I’m not that smooth. I can get clumsy around certain people. Like if I were to sit down and think, ‘OK, I’m really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public?’ I wouldn’t know who that person would be!”
The photo shoot and interview were conducted prior to her cheating scandal and were to promote her new movie, On The Road. Ironically, Kristen says she really relates to her character, a member of the beat generation: and although the era was long before her time, it is a period that she can associate with. “That world back then, it just seems freer to me than anything I could ever touch and I’m fully nostalgic for it, even though I wasn’t even alive then. It’s the loyalty aspect of it all. I love being on the periphery with a group of people who have the same values that I do.”
Loyalty, values … hmmmm …
Omarosa was secretly engaged to Michael
TMZ reports that actor Michael Clarke Duncan - who sadly passed away yesterday – and reality star Omarosa Manigault (The Apprentice) were secretly engaged and planned to marry in January.
“Sources connected with the couple tell us, Michael and Omarosa kept the engagement a secret from the media … only telling very close friends and family about the pending nuptials. We’re told the couple had just started planning for the wedding when Michael went into full cardiac arrest on July 13 and was hospitalized until his death. We’re told Omorosa is just destroyed after waging a valiant fight to save Michael. She had doctors flown in from all over the world but constantly worried if she was doing enough.”
Those Brothers Grimm were pretty dark dudes. I didn’t think much about it when I was a kid, but reading those fairytales to my children has been pretty freaky. The Little Match Girl is particularly bleak. Recently, Hollywood has cottoned on to the adult appeal of fairytales, tapping into the dark rather than the Disney side. Snow White And The Huntsman being a perfect case in point. Not a kids’ movie.
Now, The Huffington Post reports: “On the heels of two Snow White movies comes Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, which – as you can guess – is about the adventures of Hansel and Gretel, scared children-turned-witch hunters.
“Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton star as the title siblings, who became hunters after what the IMDb plot summary calls a “traumatic gingerbread-house incident.” Armed with an artillery of guns, the two track fight monsters and track down evil witch (Famke Janssen) who is kidnapping children.”
I know it’s supposed to be a serious action flick, but “traumatic gingerbread-house incident” is pretty hilarious.
