Raniere tried that. He moved to Mexico. He had recruited the son of a former president of Mexico into his cult. It didn't help him. He was arrested at the request of US authorities.

He was always telling his followers that men were strong and women were weak, and men naturally had what it takes to handle tough situations. But when the Mexican police were at the door, he left his women to face them while he hid in the closet.

Ah, interesting. I didn't know he was arrested in Mexico. Thanks.

You couldn't escape Lifetime promoting this movie if you turned on their channel the past two months. I don't even watch the channel much and saw tons of promos for it.

I'd say her career was over in 2011. She hasn't done much of anything since the ending of Smallville, and she has no credits at all (per IMDB) since 2015.

She probably could have a reality show career if she wanted. If she were European, she'd be celebrated and already back to acting.

She could do softcore porn if she gets out of prison before she's too old.

Or maybe they could do some kind of work release thing.

She was pretty busy being one of the leaders in a sex cult, though. With that out of the way...

Yeah, well...

It still amazes me the guy was able to pull this shite off to begin with.
These Hollywood etc. woman are hit on all the time.
You would THINK they would get a little suspicious when a guy says "I can help you if you take your clothes OFF and do what I say."

Yeah, that doesn't sound like Hollywood at all.

I thought she had moved to NYC to do some broadway/off broadway play after Smallville ended. Would explain her IMDB shortage.

All those Off-Broadway "productions" inside Keith Raniere's bedroom apparently didn't make her IMDB page.

That means she can participate in the Crisis crossover after all.

There is a special on ID, The Lost Women of NXIVM, that starts in about 15 minutes. I feel sure it will be available On Demand and in re-broadcasts.

Nothing says Christmas like a small update on the NXIVM sex cult. This is from a reporter that was legally harassed after investigating Raniere and the cult a few years ago. Lots of details that I don't think will be making the NY Times anytime soon.

The one with Brandon Routh is pretty damn good.

Highly Recommended.
