Blind Gossip ‘outs’ Allison Mack’s role in branding women

Blind Gossip encourages readers to guess who the story is about. The headline was “The Female Tom Cruise’

[Blind Gossip] This actress is probably best known for her role on a TV series that ran for many seasons starting in the early aughts.
She has supposedly been spending a lot of her time working her way up to a leadership position in some organization that holds “self-improvement” workshops.
…She recruits new members who are almost all female. If she recruits them, she gets to brand them with her initials.
… the “self-improvement” workshops allegedly lead to sex slavery pyramid schemes and blackmail and branding women in their private parts. Allegedly!

After the New York Times story Inside a secretive group where women are branded was published last week, Blind Gossip published an update on their ‘Female Tom Cruise’ post:

Actress: Allison Mack from Smallville…



The New York Times article cites a source named Frank Parlato. He is a former member of the group who is now working to expose their practices. Frank Parlato is to NXIVM what Leah Remini is to Scientology. You can find Frank’s blog here. The section that he just published about the cult members being branded with the founder’s initials or Allison Mack’s initials is particularly disturbing.

As a point of clarification, I was never a member of the group. I was a paid consultant. I was originally retained to get Keith Raniere accurate media exposure.

While I was fired by Keith, I am pleased to be able to continue in a voluntary role and  complete my assignment.

Allison Mack: Is she a victim or a predator? Or both?

Is funny how Frank Parlato use the NY Times to promote himself, is this guy who talk bullshit of all this situation, and put himself in a pedestal. He believes that is a kind of hero, his post talk about this site like ultimate truth, The NY time put his name as a reference of this site, and he things he deserve the honor. But the New York Time never said all this bullshit is truth, they just inform the part that they consider legitimate, the same as the existence of this website, and Parlato become crazy adding stories that we cannot affirm that are true.

The best think you can do is share the news stories with her name all over her social media and send to her Smallville friends and producers. Share, share, share. @allisonmack is her twitter, @allisonmack729 is her IG

It’s sort of telling that her name was not in The NY Times piece. Are her lawyers that scary?

We believe the reason she was not named is because the focus should stay on Keith because the responsibility for brainwashing Allison in the first place is on him. She was a perpetrator in the DOS group, but before that, she was a victim. It would be better to just focus on getting Keith locked up, then the brainwashing will wear off Allison and she will likely come back to being a productive member of her community.

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.
