I went on a few dates with Sara Bronfman a few years back. She is charming and pretty. The dates were fun. I liked her but she kept talking about the guy she worked for. It was Keith Raniere of course. At first I just thought it was her boss. But she talked about him so much that it got kinda gross. She called him ‘The Vangard’ here and there and I asked what that meant and she said it was just the thing they called him. I of course learned all about Raniere later. But at the time I just thought he was her boss or something. In one conversation she said he was her ‘spiritual guide’. At that point alarm bells started going off.

About the same time we had begun the first stages of intimacy and it looked like things were going to go all the way. I don’t know how to put this delicately but we were just about to get there when she stopped me. She said something I will never forget. ‘I can’t do this unless you understand that I belong to Keith. You have to share me with him’ That was the end. I put on my clothes and left. I have only seen her a couple of times since in passing but we never went out again. After that I started asking questions and found out all about Raniere and Nexium. That was maybe the weirdest experience of my life. I’m not ‘scarred’ or anything like that but I will never look at dating the same way again. She seemed really normal and somebody I could start a relationship with. So the revelation was a total shock.

BTW is it just me or has this site sort of become a ‘Nexium self-help’ group? LOL!

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
