EXCLUSIVE: Youve got to hand it to the friends of Xenu: they are a clubby bunch. Earlier this summer Michelle Stafford, a top celeb Scientologist, left her Emmy winning role on CBS The Young and the Restless after 16 years. No one knows why exactly. Stafford told the soap opera press she was done. Her role will likely be recast. So what did Stafford leave for? To make a YouTube series with her Scientology pals. The Stafford Project so far is just two episodes, each around 9 minutes long. The project is a reality series in small installments, all about Staffords so called real life as a single mom of a baby delivered by surrogate.
But what The Stafford Project hasnt addressed yet is that everyone involved in it is a Scientologist. No less than two of them actresses named Paige Goodman and Long. They are all well versed students of L. Ron Hubbard. They write and produce the show with Stafford. Goodman (then called Paige Dorian) was ex-member Lisa Presleys assistant and minder for eight years according to reports.
So far all the male actors are members of the cult, too Sevier Crespo and Robert Filios, as well as actor Eric Matheny.
And theyre not alone. The composer of music for The Stafford Project, Holly Palmer, has a long list of Scientology courses under her own at www.truthaboutscientology.com
Stafford has been with Scientology since 1990, and has worked her way up to OTVII, which means she may have secret information about desert rendezvous with aliens. Stafford had been married several times on Y&R, kidnapped, tried to run enemies down with her car, but never got to play that story out. Maybe she will on The Stafford Project.
Ex-Scientologist and vocal critic Mike Rinder has an interesting take on Staffords peculiar exit from The Young and the Restless. He says its because Stafford would not work on the same show as another ex-cult member, actor Michael Fairman, who plays the recurring character of Murphy. http://www.mikerindersblog.org/voldemort-19-july/
Fairman left Scientology in the last couple of years because he didnt agree with David Miscaviges controversial leadership. Y&R also boasts at least one other Scientologist in its cast Sharon Case, a milquetoast actress whos been taking courses since 1986. Her character, also named Sharon, was recently diagonosed with bi-polar disorder in order to explain her sociopathic behavior.
Also read Tony Ortegas excellent piece on Fairman who told him, I kind of dislike [Tom Cruise] for what he has allowed to go on.
A sci fi drama staring Xenu? ( or is it Xemu?)
Scientology - by its very joke of a name - sounds like something that the BoyGoreThing should be a preaching member of.
No science? Check.
Populated by low IQ members? Check
Virtually no one has ever created anything useful? Check.
A cult with suits instead of saffron robes.
she better have money saved up because she isn’t going to make squat from those videos or win any more Emmys.
My wife and step daughter watch this daily after school. I wish it would just go off.
Scientology exists so that other religions can point and say, “See, we’re not THAT crazy!”
Be sure to tell them that Phyliss “repeat my lines over and over every time” is off the show
She probably didn’t have a choice. Scientologists are not allowed to associate with ex-Scientologists, under penalty of excommunication. Go google disconnection and scientology.
She was probably ordered to quit. Maybe they’re grooming her to be Tom’s next wife.
Gawd I hope they work this into the TV show “Devious Maids”...
Stafford’s leaving Y&R was dumb and baffling, especially coming on the heels of the death of Jeanne Cooper. But somebody needs to deprogram her from that Scientology nonsense.
You know what, if were in charge of the government I’d go Waco on Scientology.
You’d corral them all in a building and burn them up with their kids ? BAD analogy. Better is to have the IRS go over their regime and adherents with a fine-toothed comb (although they’re so lawyered-up, it would probably be hard to find any “problems”). Then again, public mockery is probably the best tack. Nothing diminishes a cult or ideology more than mockery.
What I meant was I'd get around their rights anyway I could, I'm sure there is criminal activity afoot.
