After the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige disappeared from public view, in 2007, those who asked questions were stonewalled, or worse. Now interviews with former insiders provide a grim picture of Shelly Miscavige’s youth, marriage, and fall from grace—and an assessment of her fate.
Vanity Fair goes “Full Auto” on report of strange disappearance of Scientology’s First Lady, Shelly Miscavige. We’re just guessing here, but it would seem that sooner or later David Miscagive is going to run out of room in the closet to store all those inconvenient “skeletons.”
“The law [in Scientology] is: The closer to David Miscavige you get, the harder you’re going to fall,” says Claire Headley, an ex-Scientologist who, along with her husband, Marc, worked closely with the Miscaviges. “It’s like the law of gravity, practically. It’s just a matter of when.” (The church of Scientology declined Vanity Fair’s repeated requests to interview the Miscaviges. In so doing, church representatives dismissed most of V.F.’s sources as disgruntled apostates, and called V.F.’s questions “ludicrous and offensive.” Additionally, the representatives described Shelly Miscavige as a private person who “has been working nonstop in the church, as she always has.”
One of the most intriguing mysteries of the Church of Scientology is the disappearance of Shelly Miscavige, wife of the church’s leader, David Miscavige. A frequent refrain heard from critics of the church is “Where’s Shelly?” — and that question is also central to the recent defection of Leah Remini, who began to break away from the church when she didn’t get a satisfactory answer.
We can now say that we have received new confirmation that Shelly Miscavige is living and working at Scientology’s super-secret CST headquarters near Lake Arrowhead in the mountains above Los Angeles, where she has been the entire time since she was sent there in late 2005 or early 2006.
More than likely, it’s probably true that Shelley doesn’t even think that she is in need of “rescue.” That’s the sad fact about the Scientology mindset – after a while the brain ceases to function in a logical way – “up” is “down,” “black” is “white,” “right” is … well, whatever David Miscavige happens to think is best for his personal well being. And it’s a pretty safe bet you’ll not see this handsome couple HERE any time soon.
