Kirstie Alley Defends Tom Cruise And Scientology As Scientologists Begin To Attack THE MASTER

While THE MASTER may be cleaning up at the Venice Film Festival, many scientologists are doing all they can to protest the film, including reportedly harassing the film’s distributors over at The Weinstein Company.

While THE MASTER may be cleaning up at the Venice Film Festival, it is being reported that many scientologists are doing all they can to protest the film, including reportedly harassing the film’s distributors over at The Weinstein Company.

The New York Post is reporting that Scientology church members have been “inundating” Weinstein with “strange calls” criticizing the picture.  Sources also tell the newspaper that members may be planning ways to discredit the film over the coming weeks, including a dedicated Scientology-funded ad campaign, promoting the church’s message wherever the movie is being advertised.

Many have wondered how much of THE MASTER is based on the world of Scientology.  The plot of the film, as described by Joblo, is “centered on the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as “the Master” whose faith-based organization begins to catch on in America, and a young drifter who becomes his right-hand man.”

We found out recently that Tom Cruise, one of Hollywood’s most outspoken Scientologists, saw the movie (He appeared in Paul Thomas Anderson’s film, MAGNOLIA).  No word has been released from his camp about his opinion, but with this situation and the recent article investigating possible attempts by the organization to find a wife for Cruise before he married Katie Holmes, it seems like the scrutiny may just be beginning.

One person, however, who is speaking out to defend her religion is actress Kirstie Alley, who told Entertainment Tonight that all the articles and opinions that have been coming out, especially the Vanity Fair article, is like a sad gossip game:

“I think whenever you have articles written that are third and fourth parties’ opinions, it’s like the game Gossip and you don’t get the truth…I think that a magazine of that caliber should have interviewed [Tom], and then they would get the truth.”

So what does Alley really think about all the rumors involving Scientology?

“I think that probably all religions sound bizarre to people who are not the practitioners of them…To me, it’s so normal, and probably 90 percent of the crazy stuff I hear isn’t true.”

So the real question is…do you think that the world of Scientology is just being blown out of proportion by rumors and hearsay?  Or is the beautiful rug being slowly lifted to reveal all the dirt that lies underneath?

THE MASTER opens in limited release this Friday and everywhere on September 21st.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
