Ghastly appearance, ghoulish smiles adorn DOS women; please don’t follow them to the grave

A comment from a reader about the picture below brought it all home.

“Good Lord. What happened to these women? They look stunned and empty. The blond one looks like a ghost. The rest don’t seem to be present. Sad.”

(Left-to-Right) Lyvia Cohen, Melissa Rodriguez, Allison “Pimp” Mack and Alicia Novak. All four have branded their pubic regions with initials of Keith Raniere. All four are attendees at Vanguard Week. They look like four ghouls out of the cemetery.



It is not their smiles that are so frightening. It is the look in their eyes.

It is common for “branded-by-Raniere” women to offer a large smile in front of the camera.

His followers smile as if they are happy. 

For some women, I understand, ESP is their only source of income.

Keith Raniere said, “When we smile, the world smiles with us; each experience of joy for all people and a victory for humankind.”

Keith Raniere said, “He who has the most joy wins.”


Gina Hutchinson smiled when she first met Keith Raniere.

Is the smile of Lauren Salzman a happy smile?   For 20 years, she  sacrificed for Keith Raniere. She was told she was going to be his number one – and that she would bear his child. Throughout her twenties and thirties she waited.  She was “branded on her pussy” with the initials of Keith Raniere and Allison Mack. Meanwhile, he sired another child with Marianna Fernandez. He placed Allison “Pimp” Mack above her. Michelle lives alone, childless, loveless. Now past 40, Michelle is said to get a visit from Vanguard only on her birthday when he “cums over”.


Smile and lose weight.



Without Clare Bronfman, Keith Raniere would not be frightening. It is her money and his use of it that gives him the power to destroy. In this, she is his equal partner – and should be held equally responsible.

The intimidation techniques used by Keith Raniere trains women to be afraid of him.

It’s a great tool.

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.
