There's a controversial new article coming out in Vanity Fair, in which ex-Scientologists claim that several women "auditioned" for the role of Tom Cruise's wife before lucky Katie Holmes "won" the job. Tom Cruise's rep has denied the charges. How would you like to be Tom Cruise's "rep?" Now there's a job for ya.
Here's a Huffington Post article on the Vanity Fair, expose. (Which I will totally buy! Big surprise.)
What's interesting about the role of Scientology in these accusations is how rage-filled and crazy they are. See, the thing is, if someone says people had to "try out" to be my boyfriend -- and they didn't actually have to try out to be my boyfriend, I wouldn't dignify such rubbish with an answer. However, check out the Scientology rep's answer to "Us Weekly" below:
"Both Paul Haggis and Nazanin Boniadi are members of a small self-proclaimed 'posse' of anti-Scientology apostates founded by self-admitted liars and suborners of perjury," the rep added in the statement to Us Weekly. "This posse has been selling stories to the highest bidder for years . . . In recent weeks, they have exploited this high profile divorce in any way they can by spreading lies to draw attention to themselves so they an make money shilling their self-published books."
If that were true, the litigation-happy Scientologists would have stopped the sale of those books. The fact that they haven't, and that this statement has far too much venom in it for a story without validity...well, you be the judge.
Here's the lucky girl who didn't make the cut, Nazanin Boniadi.
