Scientology Says Vanity Fair Article Is Hogwarts 'Hogwash', Paul Haggis A Liar

| Filed under: Film FlickersWacky, Tacky & TrueTom CruiseLove Line

If anybody thought that Vanity Fair's recent article exposing Scientology's wife-hunt for Tom Cruise was going to cause the organization to fess up, you were wayyyyy off!

As usual, their publicists are hardcore denying any truth to the story of how Nazanin Boniadi ALMOST got herself into some risky business after the Church selected her to marry the A-list star.

Calling Maureen Orth's piece "hogwash," a rep stated:

"The entire story is hogwash. There was no project, secret or otherwise, ever conducted by the Church to find a bride (audition or otherwise) for any member of the church. The allegation and entire premise of the Vanity Fair article is totally false . . . We have been denying this ridiculous tale now since it first appeared in print four years ago."

Paul Haggis didn't think it was too ridiculous though. The acclaimed filmmaker, who left Scientology in 2010, CONFIRMED the allegations. But boy does the Church have words for him!

The same statement denying Shelly Miscavige's operation "Marry Tom Cruise" bashes Haggis as the rep continues:

"[Paul Haggis is] a status obsessed apostate who exploited a tenuous connection with Scientology to grab headlines via a publicity stunt whereby he 'resigned' from the Church where he had not been an active parishioner for decades. He is doing the same again — attempting to grab headlines and falsely slander his former religion. No Church members were 'used,' nor were they punished, nor silenced. This is totally false."

The statement even suggests Haggis himself had a romantic relationship with Boniadi because he cast her in his film, The Next Three Days. Scientology's proof of implied relationship? Google!

The rep added:

"Did he reveal to you the relationship he was having with Nazanin Boniadi? We discovered this simply by Googling his name and hers. Here is our question: is it Paul Haggis who started a relationship with Boniadi while auditioning and casting his last film, The Next Three Days? What is the motivation here? 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 adds. "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."

It seems the controversial religious organization will never crack and believes that denial is the best policy when it comes to protecting dirty little secrets.

    Maureen Orth wrote the article. The late Tim Russert's wife, not Melissa Orth… Get it right PEREZ.

    Maureen is also NBC reporter Luke Russert's mother.

    Scientology is a crazy cult. Where is Miscavige's wife, Shelly, now? Digging ditches or in one? I'd guess the latter. WHen is the FBI going to investigate them. Murder? Kidnapping? Child abuse and parental alienation? Child labor? Extortion and blackmail? the list is ENDLESS. C'mon FBI…step up and investigate what is going on in our country! f Human Trafficking is so high on your list…then Scientology should be higher, because they do that too.

    Tommy is now past the point of being resuscitated.

    Perez has become an Anti-Scientologist cult organization too. One destroying the other. I see no difference at all other than making poor Tom the victim of sqabling.

    Look guys, no matter what you do, just don't hate Tom. He's a nice guy and he can't easily turn his back to a religion that cured his dyslexia. So a little respect, you nasty brat!

    If the story is untrue, then let the cult do what it has always done, sue Vanity Fair. The cult won't, of course, because the story is true. Vanity Fair would not have printed it if they didn't have sufficient evidence/documentation/collaboration to protect themselves from libel.

    So put up, or STFU cult.

    I sometimes pity Tom Cruise. He's old, alone, used by teenage kids for money, used by family for money (i mean, why would his sister be with him all the time). He's supposed to be wise and has learn enough about life not to get suckered in by the Scientology cult. But then, when i think about how he's treated Nicole and other people, i think that he deserves whatever he's getting.

    @Venus914. Tom Cruise is well-known to have close ties with his mother and sisters. He grew up under an abusive father. He's a very caring person in real life as many could attest to that. David Beckham even describes him as a nice guy with great family behind him. My only take why Katie divorced him is maybe she's against the family liviing with them. But hey, it's a big mansion with several rooms and Tom has always been supporive to his sisters.

    They can call it a shore story, an acceptable truth, a gradient truth, part of TR-L or Keeping Scientology Working, these people know how to sling it.

    "It seems the controversial religious organization will never crack and believes that denial is the best policy when it comes to protecting dirty little secrets…"

    Denial and, more importantly, ATTACK. Never defend, always attack! (After all, how can you defend yourself against allegations that are actually true).

    "Louanne", not her real name, is a Scientology Office of Special Affairs "internet patroller", it's her job to market Scientology and attack critics online, usually using a whole bunch of sock-puppets.

    For giant and tall folks, clothing can sometimes be dependent on discomfort. Sometimes, ill-fitting clothing may be constricting or distracting, and relaxation <a href=
    and comfort become near impossible. With the right pair of shorts, however, big and tall people can chill in comfort and style.
