When I read last week on HuffingtonPost.com that Nancy Cartwright, a.k.a. the voice of Bart Simpson and devoted Scientologist, was making robocalls on behalf of a church event in the voice of everyone’s favorite 10 year-old troublemaker, I was curious […]
Late last week news broke that someone was trying to extort the Travolta family for $20 million, but no one seemed to know the details. Some thought that the extortion money was to suppress photos taken at the time of […]
As a parent, it’s impossible not to feel the anguish that John Travolta and his wife, Kelly Preston, are feeling right now as they mourn the death of their son, Jett. It makes you want to hug your kids a […]
Germany has made no secret of their complete and utter distaste for Scientology in recent years. Last year, government officials dared to ban Tom Cruise from filming on location because of his Scientology affiliation. But that was really only one […]
My fellow Idol Chatter bloggers and I have written before about how we believe Will Smith doth protest too much that he is not involved in Scientology. I have even questioned Smith’s claims that all religions are basically the same— […]
It’s tragic enough that singer-songwriter Isaac Hayes died Sunday at the age of 65. But according to an article by Roger Friedman on Fox News.com, Scientology may have played a role in the singer’s death–which was just today ruled the […]
Many of us here at Idol Chatter have been transfixed by the downward trajectory of Tom Cruises’ career since the Oprah couch jumping incident which coincided with his being more out about Scientology. But celebrity and Scientology have gone hand […]
From the Old Testament (Yahweh) to Grimm’s Fairytales (Rumpelstiltskin), names have always carried power. And now some in the media are suggesting that the name of Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s newborn daughter’s name is imbued with a similar, power–an […]
Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith recently announced plans to open a private school in Calabasas, California, just outside of Los Angeles. New Village Academy is scheduled to open in September, and while the couple may have funded […]
Though I rarely see it said explicitly in the press, it has always been obvious to me that Nicole Kidman lost primary custody of her adopted children in her divorce from Tom Cruise and that Scientology no doubt has had […]
It’s no secret that I’m not a huge fan of secretive, esoteric, spiritual communities that charge loads of money to reach higher levels of enlightenment (unless of course they involve cool decoder rings), so what I’m about to say is […]
It seems more and more of the media are no longer afraid to take shots at Scientology and the celebs who may or may not be a part of their flock. The latest expose of the cult–and it seems like […]
Certainly one of the tenets of my day-to-day spiritual walk is the firm belief that whatever is done in darkness will eventually come to light. So while I am not into celebrity gossiping or tabloid-mongering, I had to smile for […]
As Americans, we expect three simple things: Life, liberty and the right to pursue happiness by selling things on eBay. But Scientology is standing in the way of that American dream, reports Scott Pilutik on RealityBasedCommunity.net. It seems that the […]
A few weeks ago here at Idol Chatter we posted about Anonymous, a group of internet-based folks dedicated to exposing the lies of Scientology. Well, Saturday was declared an official day for protesting Scientology and according to reports by the […]
If you haven’t seen it yet, you soon will. It’s making the rounds around the Web faster than Tom Cruise’s hyena-esque clip and it’s far more disturbing. A group calling themselves Anonymous is out to expose and “systematically dismantle” Scientology […]
Andrew Morton, author of two biographies of Princess Di, is used to getting blowback from his subjects’ defenders. And he expected his new book on Tom Cruise to raise the considerable ire of both Scientology and Cruise himself. (His publisher, […]
Last night, I saw this video celebrating Tom Cruise’s role in promoting Scientology to the world, in commemoration of his winning of the Freedom Medal of Honor award (a church honor). I understand that they were playing on “Mission: Impossible” […]
Mark Oppenheimer, writing in The Washington Post, suggests Germany’s ban on Scientologists (including Tom Cruise) is an overreaction, and one we’re all a little guilty of. He says it’s Scientology’s similarities to mainstream religion that embarrasses us, not it’s strangeness. […]
Unless you’re a true Hollywood insider (or a N.Y. Times magazine reader), you’ve never heard of Milton Katselas. But this veteran acting coach is responsible for shaping countless souls into true actors. Head of an acting school called the Beverly […]
Is John Travolta the new face of Scientology? This week Travolta called on the BBC to kill a segment critical of the organization after BBC reporter John Sweeney screamed at a Scientology representative, “like a jet engine,” in Sweeney’s own […]
Once upon a time there was an actor named Tom Cruise. He was king of the box office; everyone wanted to work with him. Heck, even Rosie O’Donnell had a crush on him. And then something odd happened. He jumped […]
Just as fashion magazines regularly christen every color of the rainbow to be “the new black” for the season, Hollywood A-listers seem to be saying so long to last season’s Kabbalah and hello to Scientology. “Scientology is the Kabbalah of […]
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 […]
Celebrities may have personal assistants, trainers, make-up artists and stylists, but many of them are just like their average American counterparts–they have a hard time conceiving. In 1995, “Days of Our Lives” star Diedre Hall chronicled her struggle with infertility […]
TomKat is probably so busy planning for the big wedding next month in Italy that they won’t even notice that Scientology is going to get another bad rap in the limelight this Saturday night, as CBS’s “48 Hours” focuses on […]
