We’re continuing to look back at recent issues of Scientology’s Celebrity magazine, which appears to be a victim of the pandemic. Today, we thought we’d go through issue 437, which came out in June 2017 and featured actress Erika Christensen on the cover.
"And rather than exhibit the glazed-eye look of most new mothers, Erika gives the appearance of someone who is getting plenty of sleep. 'My husband and I don’t always tell people how easy it’s been because we understand that other new parents have a reality that is very different and that’s totally valid.'"
This sort of thing really annoys me. The healthy, well-fed, well-rested celebrity spouting off about the ease of labour and early motherhood. And the faux humble "we don't like to talk about how wonderful we are", whilst being interviewed by a magazine that will be distributed to your entire social circle. And don't get me started on the patronising "don't get down on yourself if you're not as perfect as us. Your personal crappiness as an exhausted parent it's totally valid"...! GAH!
UGH. She was forced into doing the Purif at age 11? That's disgraceful.
"It was here at Celebrity Centre that [Erika Christensen] was first exposed to auditing at the age of nine."
Honestly, "exposed to" gives me flasher vibes. Auditing and waving one's penis around in public with abandon both give me the ick, so it's probably no surprise my brain went there 😁
Even when I was in scientology, these puff pieces were just too fluffy to stomach. It tells you nothing whatsoever about Erika while gushing heavily about how scientology being the reason this empty shell is who she is.
It makes me wonder what she’d be like if she was allowed to be herself.
IMO the people who do well while they are in scientology do so in spite of it, not because of it.
Erika gushes like an oil well blowout. I wonder how many 'helpers' the CO$ has given her? I have noticed that none of these clebs actively touts the benefits of Clamatology in public.
Regarding the Prince tribute, I wonder if Stacy Francis was pulled out of storage and dusted off to perform her main X Factor claim to fame, her cover of Purple Rain.
As an aside, Erika Christensen has one of the most beautiful faces I've ever seen. Does she have Slavik roots? Or perhaps Nordic?
God, started her at 9. She didn’t stand a chance. Deeply sad.
