India is fortunate to have a mother who loves her unconditionally and who is willing to pull out all the stops to get her home safely. I don’t know how the Bronfman trusts were written but if Edgar Bronfman had had the balls to declare his daughters were in need of a financial conservancy ESP/NXIVM et al would be dead in the water and India would never be in the situation she is now.

I honestly think Keith, the Salzmans, and Bronfmans have met their match. Much as the Vancouver community has rallied around Sarah E, there is a legion of mothers and women who will help Catherine tear this motherfucking cult down.

This was good. The one criticism I have is Megyn Kelly should have asked Rick Ross to discuss NXIVM, more so than the TImes Union representative. It would have been more impactful to the audience since he is considered a known authority on cults has personally dealt with NXIVM specifically.

About the Author

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.
