Christine Collins had been set to replace Prefect Salzman – then she gained weight

For some time, Keith Raniere sought to replace Nancy Salzman as “Prefect” and let her retire to green pastures with a nominal allowance.

Ms. Salzman, of course, would still be required to bring in business in order to earn her keep, but the mantle of “Prefect” would be placed on someone younger, more intelligent, equally obedient and less expensive.

Longtime disciple Christine Collins was under serious consideration and was all but chosen when it was discovered that the intelligent young lady had grown too plump.

She was ordered to lose weight but failed to do so – and despite her having achieved the status of Orange Sash with three stripes, she was told she could no longer teach because she was too fat.

She had to take a job as a waitress until she could shed unwanted poundage (Apparently, even the job she had to take was part of the punishment).

She had this to say about Executive Success Programs: “This program is the single, most important aspect to my growth professionally, emotionally, and cognitively. Coming to class on a regular basis provides me with structure and feedback. This is the best program available with the most incredible, resourceful, knowledgeable leaders.” Christine Collins, Behavioral Management Specialist

Fat disturbs the spiritual transmission, Mr Raniere teaches.

It would hardly be appropriate if ESP had tubby teachers. How could they transmit their teachings to the students with too much spiritual inhibiting fatness?

  • I think it was Christine’s ability to shoo away the student/barking dog during that one training that qualified her as the New Nancy.

  • Keith does not like boys, he likes girls. because he is super intelligent he likes girls w flat chests. Studies show the smaller the breast the smarter the woman = that is science, not pedophilia. grow up people!

    • Such a perfect example of how Raniere-world addles the minds of its members.

      Such nonsense !!

      • I happen to believe in Vanguard and I don’t believe in you! Christine did get too fat. She put on surplus pounds when she was ordered to lose weight and she was one plump little lady. So HOW does she think she can teach a course that shows women how to have the perfect figure if she does not have it HERSELF?!?!?!?!
        Vanguard has taught me to reexamine my inner structure to find my true intent and it is not being a fatty I assure you. He likes small or flat chested woman because small and flat chested women are more intelligent and let’s face it, you need uber sized boobs because you are nursing a brood of [likely plump] children otherwise big boobs just get in the way. Although I admit they do attract the lower IQ type men. To quote Vanguard “Big boobs are for big boobs.”

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.
