Chris Burbs: runs into Rosa Laura Junco who explains to Chelsea Brown some ESP philosophy

Chris Burbs is in the fight against Keith Raniere, although he does want to punch me in the face.

I am actually beginning to like this guy, Chris M. Burbs. He may not like me and even threatens to punch me in the face when this is all over, but he has guts, and I like that.

Chris found out about the cult when he was dating Vany Huber, a nice woman caught in DOS. She tried to recruit him – and said she could not invite him to volleyball or picnics because he did not take the NXIVM courses. He smelled something fishy. They split up.

Chris writes: 

Had the Frank Report not been there and led to the New York Times, I probably would have been in this cult.  I’ll buy you a beer after the punch to the face 😉

On another front: I was in Uncommon Grounds Coffee and Bagels in Clifton Park, and saw Rosa Laura Junco and Chelsea Brown.

I sat down behind them and heard Rosa Laura provide the following explanation to Chelsea:

“Esp is a microcosm of the world. There is good and bad. But we have the intent to acknowledge our deficiencies. Ethics has to be where you are at and you strive. But you have to accept each other.”

I approached Rosa Laura and asked if I could get my friend’s collateral back. How she could stay supporting this evil man [Raniere]?

She asked if I followed her there.

Fortunately, it was a great coincidence and I recognized her.

I asked again, why she won’t give back the naked photos and confessions of my friend.

She asked me to leave.

I said, after I finish my coffee.

She texted for a bodyguard.

I looked to Chelsea and said, get out, leave, and run from this organization

And I was on my way.


NXIVM women frequent Uncommon Grounds. DOS slave Rosa Laura Junco, the daughter of the famous Mexican media mogul Alejandro Junco, gives Chelsea Brown some of the philosophy of Keith Raniere.

Editor’s Note: Chelsea Brown is married to Adrian Fernandez, the brother of Mariana Fernandez, Camilla Fernandez, and Daniela Fernandez. Mariana recently had a baby that is said to be Keith Raniere’s son. Camilla has joined the harem with her sister. Daniela escaped after being imprisoned for 18 months for not agreeing to join the harem of Keith Raniere.

  • Chris you are one of my heros and a thorn in their asses. Be careful buddy and we will have front row seats in the court room when they are all in orange jump suits.

    • Thank you for the love. If we haven’t met, I hope one day we do. I’ll be the guy with the popcorn in the court room.

      And I’m not a hero. Just a passionate guy who does what he thinks is right.

  • Thanks for fighting the good fight, Chris! Would love to get that collateral back, lol.

  • Chelsea, if you are reading this…you are strong, capable, and you didn’t even want this life! You got sucked in by falling in love with Adrian. You do NOT need this community, nor do you need Adrian to live your life. I know you love him, and I know it’s scary to be without him, but you are so young. You have so much life to live. Stop letting this consume you. You were better off at the Cheesecake Factory, trust me.

    • I sent this to Chelsea after the meeting.

      Hi Chelsea.

      Sorry to bum rush you at the coffee store. It’s was actually a coincidence.
      I actually thought you were souki for a moment and recognized rosa so I sat near you.
      You must know and acknowledge Keith is a bad man… my only explanation as to why some people are staying is they want to save the school.
      The school in the states will not last. The Feds are closing in now.

      Do you really want to sink with this ship? Go down with it?
      Or do you want to be known as a woman who had the strength to leave?
      It’s not your issue if you leave, its theirs. Take the great things you learned and grow from it.
      The community will come together again after Keith is in jail. There’s a wonderful community of your former expian friends waiting for you.

  • Rosa Laura seemed shameful and embarrassed when I questioned her.

    Chelsea just gave a cute grin. I think she might have a crush on me, Frank. My selfie game is not strong, I’m much more handsome in person. Lol

    Also, I’m a hockey player…. telling someone you want to punch them in the face is a term of endearment.

      • Let’s see your pic, Luke the troll…
        You seem to think you’re a good judge of male attractiveness – care to share why you’re so interested in this story? Lol

          • When you have a solid foundation of self, it doesn’t matter what people say about you, eh Luke?

            That being said, would I meet the definition of a man by SOP and Keith Raniere?

            Probably not. I’m not into degrading or humiliating women. I haven’t been emotionally castrated by Keith to the point where I hide while women share their stories of abuse.

            By your definition, man or not, I’m quite proud of the person I am. I stand for what I believe in, I support women who are courageous as well as those who live in fear. I prefer to make a woman feel comfortable, safe and secure, rather than brainwash and manipulate them through fear.

          • I wonder what motivation “Luke ” has to troll here and insult people. A bit of a passive -aggressive coward, Luke? if you have a legitimate comment or point to make, you should do so, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

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.
