Here is the latest promo piece for the annual CC Gala.
JT is featured prominently – twice. Is he doing another ethics handling and has committed to attend for sure as part of his amends? Jenna Elfman and Laura Prepon, Mark Isham and Chick Corea are also shown. Jenna, Mark and Chick are card-carrying Kool Aid drinkers. Laura may be in the same boat as JT — in a bit of trouble for being gay in Orange Is The New Black, or they just happened to use a photo of JT that she is in from a previous Gala.
But the real issue here is who they are NOT showing…
The greatest disseminator in the history of the universe? No doubt this is not an important enough event for him to attend. He reserves himself for Dear Leader’s biggest events — yanking the ribbon on Super Power and the IAS Spectacularorama at St Hill.
Kirstie? Too out PR to be shown these days? Her latest stunt of disconnecting from her DWTS partner is typical.
Lisa Marie and Priscilla? No longer toeing the party line it seems. Let’s not forget Lisa Marie and Leah Remini were BFFs.
Greta Van Susteren? Keeps her distance, doesn’t want to be associated with another cult (in addition to Fox News). Smart enough to know association with scientology is a career killer.
Elisabeth Moss? Never been to any event. A pattern that doesn’t appear to be changing.
Erika Christiansen? Usually a pretty easy mark for this sort of thing. Perhaps not big enough to warrant a mention these days.
Juliette Lewis? Nobody seems to care.
Anne Archer? She will no doubt be there, but there is no celebrity gas left in that tank.
Nancy Cartwright? Maybe she is being held hostage by the Valley Org fundraising team to keep her from becoming prey for any other regges. She is their goose that lays golden eggs.
Jason Lee? Seems to have slipped out the back door at some point.
Catherine Bell? Persona non-grata since she broke up with her husband to get together with Brooke Daniels (daughter of Penny Atwell Jones) who also broke up with her husband. (Someone happened to send me a photo of the happy couple recently – you can see it below). Whatever their PR statements, someone auditing on OT VII leaving her husband to have a relationship with another woman does NOT win you any popularity contest with Dear Leader. Maybe Catherine also decided to escape…
I earlier said the plebe seating was $650. It’s actually $600 as you can see here.
Here is the shot of Catherine and Brooke Daniels. I heard Penny Atwell Jones cannot stand anyone bringing up the subject of Brooke. She seems to think this is a big secret… I can only assume Penny thinks Brooke has brought her dishonor. Penny does seem to place great importance on her status in the church and this didn’t earn her a nod from the COB when he passed her in the hallway….
