John Travolta: Scientology Could Have Saved Anna Nicole

posted by Ellen Leventry

Maybe he feels a certain kinship with the late Anna Nicole Smith after donning drag for the upcoming film version of “Harispray,” but John Travolta feels that Scientology could have saved the former Guess! model and reality star’s life.

“The Pulp Fiction star has decided to use her death as a chance to promote Narconon–the controversial Church of Scientology drug rehab programme,” reports Metro.co.uk. (Narconon is not to be confused with Narcanon, with an “A,” which is the 12-step Narcotics Anonymous program.)

“It’s so sad,” the site reports the celebrity Scientologist as saying. “We could have helped her with Narconon but didn’t get a chance to. I wish we had.”

With the autopsy not yet finalized, the cause of Smith’s death is still speculative. And whether or not she was simply taking prescription medication as her lawyer Howard Stern claims, Smith clearly had a problem, as the disturbing footage of Smith in clown face featured on Fox News clearly illustrated.

Travolta, who starred with Smith in “Be Cool” and has starred with Narconon spokesperson Kirstie Alley in the “Look Who’s Talking” films, did not comment on the other strung-out starlettes of the moment, Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan.

According to one poster on gossip blog Perezhilton.com (warning: explicit language), Travolta made the statement while wending his way through the Oscar’s press line, although MSNBC’s Scoop puts it at a promtional event for his new flick “Wild Hogs.” And while it’s a questionable line of questioning–and Travolta’s response seemed like an advertorial–in a way it gave the former Playboy Playmate and pop-cultural icon what she probably would have wanted, one last trip down the red carpet.

    WHEN RON HUBBARD STARTED THIS “CULT” WAS MANY YEARS BACK. THERE IS NO GOD OF THE BIBLE AS WE KNOW IT, AND THEY SORT OF CHANGE THINGS TO SUIT THEM. REINCARNATION, AND OTHER EASTERN ORIENTAL RELIGIONS MIXED IN MAKE IT A REAL HODGE PODGE.

    Any life is scared no matter how it is saved. Whether you agree with them or not. She difinitely needed help! Anything is better than nothing.

    Does this mean that John Travolta has chosen to live a drug free lifestyle himself? He used to have quite the reputation with cocaine.

    “in a way it gave the former Playboy Playmate and pop-cultural icon what she probably would have wanted” — a feeling that only someone who is shameless enough to make a “living” from watching soap operas can understand…>
