My name is Steven Mango and I was a parishoner of the exclusive Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International in Hollywood, CA. In the span of four years of devoted membership until my escape in 2012, I became a lifetime member, I donated close to $50,000 to the church, and I was a victim of severe spiritual and emotional abuse inside the walls of the church. I was also a poster boy for the church, appearing in advertisements for the International Association of Scientologists across the Celebrity Centre. My photo also appeared on their The Way To Happiness booklets.

In comparison to other Scientology churches, things for all the celebrities at the Los Angeles Celebrity Centre were over-the-top in terms of elegance and privacy, starting with their own separate double-gated entrance on the corner of Franklin and Bronson Avenues, and a special area in the underground parking garage that was monitored by security. Celebrities entered through the President’s Office, which had its own lobby, Purif delivery area, and private office space. Upstairs were two auditing rooms and a private course room to be used solely by celebrities and other people of importance, such as big donors to the Church.
Scientology defined celebrities as anyone influential, so it could be well-recognized names like Tom Cruise and John Travolta, but it could also be someone like Craig Jensen, CEO of Condusiv Technologies, and Scientology’s biggest donor, or Izzy Chait, a prominent Beverly Hills art dealer. The security for the celebrities was very tight but deliberately inconspicuous, so that a big celebrity could literally be on services and most people at the Centre would never know he was there.

It’s been reported that Kirstie has put on around 35 extra pounds since getting her new show. Well hey, it must be harder to loose weight than to get rid of the cocaine habit!!

Inconsequential spokesperson for the New & Improved Scientology Weight Loss program is going to have another go at it. Kirstie Alley seems to have an overwhelming gravitational attraction for those pesky engrams. But the big questions is this: is Kirstie just not far enough up the Bridge to be able to exploit the incredible power of the mind? Inquiring minds want to know!

Kirstie … here’s a hint. Ditch the worthless Scientology hocus-pocus and just push away from the table. And maybe get a rebate on those millions you’ve given to the Scilons and buy yourself a lifetime supply of meals from Nutrisystem. Seriously? Jenny Craig?

UPDATE: Here’s a curious list of all the cool things that Kirstie has achieved in her quest to be “Clear” as an OTVII … so we ask the question again: “WHY DO YOU NEED JENNY CRAIG?” Just saying.

Will Smith Gives Big Money To Scientology!

We all know that Will Smith is a pretty charitable guy.

Recently, he’s even been going to hospitals and schools to donate his time and money.

So it’s no surprise that Smith, and his beard wife Jada, have given away $1.3 million in donations this last year to a variety of charities.

The tax returns for Smith’s charitable foundation show that several donations were made to art groups, hospital, and religious groups.

Smith’s biggest single contribution was again to the Yesha Ministries of Philadelphia. The born-again Christian based organization received $250,000 from Smith.

But perhaps the most interesting thing is that Smith donated to the Church of Scientology, giving a combined total of $122,500.

Smith and Jada have also supported that new private school in Los Angeles, New Village Academy, that uses Scientology learning concepts.

Smith denies being directly involved with the “religion.” But, as the old saying goes, MONEY TALKS!

Equal opportunity at work! Thanks to Perez Hilton.
