At V-Week 2017, Keith Raniere made an announcement that he and Marianna Fernandez just had a baby boy.  How that went over with the other women he promised to have babies with is unknown.  But given everything that these other women have sacrificed to be with Keith, there has got to be a lot of tension in the air.


As I reported earlier, it did not go over well with Ivy Nevares. She did NOT attend V-week because she was upset about Marianna’s baby. and because Keith had promised her that she would bear his firstborn child.

A source said:

Ivy was devastated about Marianna;s baby — wich was hidden from the community. She found out through the Frank Report. By the way, Ivy is not in DOS. She was not asked to be part of DOS. She found out about DOS from the Frank Report.

Another person who was reportedly was NOT at V-Week was Rosie Chiappone, the daughter of longtime member Esther Chiappone. Rosie has resigned from ESP. was never a member of DOS and was  quite repulsed when she found out about it.

Said a source,

Rosie left because of DOS. It will affect Esther. She was her favorite. Esther looks like hell in a hand basket. She lost her son, Robbie, whose troubles led him into the armed services and now her daughter is breaking away.


These are not the only members who are breaking away, Two prominent women just quit. Several more in Mexico and others are getting ready to do the same.  Their tales often expose more of the weirdness once they’re out of harm’s way,

A recent comment:

I can say first-hand that a minimum of 8-10 people who are high ranked are about to leave and 4 of them have some very pertinent info about Keith. I won’t betray anyone’s trust but this will be the second biggest mass defection of high ranks out of the company since the initial defection that happened when Mark and Sarah left.”

Another source said

Several of the high ranks, proctors and coaches, are just putting in their time, but they are all planning on leaving.



How is Keith taking all this?

A woman in Clifton Park said,

“Keith’s arrogance is reaching an all time high.  Something cracked in him and he stopped pretending. He doesn’t keep up the guru act anymore.  He was fucking good and now he lost it.   Now he even brags about his conquests.

What happened? Why didn’t he keep up his carefully groomed guru image? The impotence fractured him. He was such a sexual dominator,  He can’t get it up.

What happens when a psychopath crosses over?  He becomes vindictive.  He wants to crush people into poverty. Torturing people close to him.

Keith may have wanted to blow up DOS and retire to Fiji permanently.  He would probably take Marianna and Clare and anyone else he might feel like. He doesn’t care. He will take Marianna because she is like his butler.  He might leave with just the two. His body servant and his money. He does not need anybody else.

Keith likes to watch things burn.  If he didn’t have Fiji as his exit strategy, it might be different.  He will act all serious and distressed to people like he cares, but he won’t be thinking about it. It will just be an act. He is not sweating it one bit.

He has an exit strategy: Fiji.

  • Ivy: This was not Keith’s first born child that would be Gaelen, that is unless Kristin Keeffe played Uncle Keith to believe he was the father. It was rumored that Kristin had relationships outside of ESP including someone in local LE. If so well played Kristin well played.

  • Of course he doesn’t care. He’s a sociopath. They have no conscience and they barely have feelings. The only people they “care” – as much as it can be said about someone like him – about is themselves. The guy is a predator and only enjoys the game, and any persona he dons is to satisfy this. I’ve been telling people this for years, but people don’t listen. They think that he rips off other people and says a few good words here and there makes him a guru. Every one of the DOS women who thinks they are “loving” him are doing so only to an emotional black hole. He’s most likely laughing inside at how much he enjoys your stupidity. He doesn’t give a shit. He only gives a shit about what you can do for him. He’s been saying it for years. It’s a tool. You’re a fucking a tool. Clare’s the biggest tool, and a fucking fool. That’s it.

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.
