A Whole Lotta' Shaking Going On...

Wow, do you feel the earth quaking? It is emanating from Clearwater, Florida....the COS headquarters to be more precise. Holy carp---this is a biggie. One of the Scientology celebs has not only broken with the group, he is telling it like it is. Given the long history of people who criticize scientokooks and then suddenly turn up dead from various "accidents" or strange "suicides" (link), what Jason Beghe is doing is brave and very dangerous.

A Major earth-shaking for Thetans everywhere:

Ruggedly handsome actor Jason Beghe was best man at the wedding of "X Files" star David Duchovny (his childhood pal) and actress Tea Leoni. In 1998, he starred as Demi Moore’s love interest in "G.I. Jane." He’s been featured in numerous TV dramas such as "Criminal Minds," "Numb3rs" and "CSI."

In 2005, Beghe appeared in promotional spots for the Church of Scientology.

But now Beghe has escaped the church after taking courses since 1994. He’s made a video that’s up on YouTube.

This is what he has to say: "Scientology is destructive and a rip-off."

He also says: "It’s very, very dangerous for your spiritual, psychological, mental, emotional health and evolution. I think it stunts your evolution. If Scientology is real, then something’s f——ed up."

You can see from the video that Beghe does not mince words. But his refreshing candor about the religion he joined in 1994 should shake the Celebrity Center to its core.

"It ain’t deliverin’ what it’s promised. It sure has not."

The video is billed as a three-minute teaser to a longer interview with Beghe that’s on its way. But the short video packs a powerful punch. Beghe still uses a lot of Scientology lingo like "OT" and "clear." Still, it’s quite easy to understand the point he’s making. After 14 years and a tremendous amount of money, he’s seeing Scientology in a different light.

Beghe has completed so many courses that he’s considered a top Scientologist, or "OT 5" — similar to Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Kirstie Alley. But Beghe reveals: "The further up the bridge, the worse you get."

He adds: "I don’t have an agenda. I’m just trying to help. I have the luxury of having gotten into Scientology and after having been in it, been out. And that’s a perspective that people who are still in and not out do not have."

The Best Intentions can only cover so much....

Close friends of Richie Sambora’s are distraught over the idea that the Bon Jovi guitarist might be facing a child endangerment charge in addition to a DUI charge stemming from his March 25 arrest.

People magazine reported that according to a source close to the case, police have indeed recommended both charges to prosecutors. While the district attorney’s office cannot comment on the case for now, one Sambora pal is worried about how the rocker will feel if the charges come through. (An arraignment is set for May 7.)

“Ava means the world to him. Richie has such a good heart, he really does. He might appear like the most easy-going guy, but there’s a lot he’s struggling with right now. We’re worried about him.”

Sambora was arrested in Laguna Beach last month after police spotted him driving erratically. Sambora’s 10-year-old daughter, Ava, was in the car, as was a teenage cousin of hers.

From everything I have read about Richie he is a really nice man, but good intentions can't cover a ton of sheyat. His good heart and intentions would have done diddly squat if he plowed into a tree while driving drunk and had killed his daughter and her cousin. "Sorry" just is not good enough in this case; and worrying "how he will feel" if charged should be the least of everyone's concerns. He needs to have his arse hauled to jail for a while, but I am sure a country club style "celebrity detox" will be considered sufficient punishment.... And Heather Locklear has been strangely silent about this whole incident. If the Divo had ever pulled this type of stunt you could bet the farm that I would have cut his manberries off with a rusty, dull, butter knife, created a new hole in his body to defecate out of, and then called a press conference wearing said manberries as earrings.

Yeah, sure blame the f'n cookies, LOL


or this:

Madonna's husband Guy Ritchie went on the Cookie Diet ... and stopped wanting to have sex with her as a result, she told a Phoenix radio show recently.

"My husband went on that Cookie Diet, and it was such a turn-off because he didn't want to have sex," she told "The Johnjay and Rich Show."

The 800-calorie-a-day diet — reportedly tried by Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson — did help Richie drop the pounds.

"He did lose weight, but he didn't really need to lose that much weight. I think he did it because all his friends were doing it and he wanted to see if he could do it."

Sanford Siegal, the doctor who created the Cookie Diet way back in 1975, responded Monday to Madonna's comments, saying that he has "treated more than 500,000 patients" and he "can't recall any of them reporting a similar effect on their sexual appetite."

He added, "In the case of my cookies, they taste good enough but I can't imagine anyone preferring them to sex."

LOL... Madge, sweetie....when your man does not want sex it usually has nothing to do with his eating cookies. An aversion to faux British accents perhaps....but cookies? I. don't. think. so.

  1. Diva-

    I dunno, I think this cookie diet thing looks very good. I figure, the more weight I take off, the better my chances are for "romance" with TWIL. Of course, cookies were a major contributor to me getting here. We'll have to see...
