Allison Mack jogs, make E! News, provokes Tweet storm and shuts down

Allison Mack jogging in Knox Woods post DOS.
Allison Mack out for a mandatory run, as required by her master, Keith Raniere.


Yesterday, just prior to the outbreak of a media frenzy outing Allison Mack, she was jogging in Knox Woods. As a DOS slave, she is required to run some 40 miles per week, while maintaining a diet of 500-800 calories per day.

During the last 36 hours or so, Allison Mack has gotten a fair share of publicity for her role in DOS. More is expected. E! News devoted about two minutes to Allison’s reported role as second in command of a slave cult that brands women.

Here is a You Tube capture of the broadcast



Here are some Tweets about Allison following the outbreak of stories about her being in the slave cult:

I really can’t with people disbelieving the sex cult story because “it’s the Daily Mail though”. Yes, because Allison Mack is totally the name they’d pull out of thin air just for hits.

I can’t believe that Allison Mack, who played one of my favourite characters in , Chloe Sullivan has done something like this. She always seemed like a genuinely good person … I guess she’s not but holy shit this is just horrible. 

Somebody SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVE ME… from this abusive sex cult 

The Media: Men in Hollywood are such abusers.

Allison Mack: Hold my beer.


If this is what Allison Mack is up to then good lord in heaven above WHAT IS KRISTEN KREUK UP TO?!?

I share this with a heavy heart. Most of you know that Allison Mack has been involved with Nxivm for years, and openly calls Raniere her “mentor”. She declined to comment on the allegations in this article. 

CW: Hey we’re bringing back classic DC show fan favorites as guests and characters and we think you

Allison Mack: No, No. I’ve got this other thing. 

Former Smallville actress is ‘second in command of sex cult’

Allison Mack, 35, is reportedly second in command of a secret sex cult at the heart of self-help group NXIVM.

This is absolutely disgusting. @allisonmack I wrote an essay on why you and chloe sullivan were my heros in the ninth grade.I take it all back.I’m so glad Hollywyood is caving in on itself 

This Allison Mack news is really upsetting. I remember rumors back in the day she & Kreuk were in some weird cult, but they never picked up serious traction so I didn’t over think it. But to hear the level it has become…that’s disgusting.

Yeah I did some clicking around and apparently Kristen Kruek recruited Allison Mack into a creepy sex cult back in the day 

I gave up hoping Allison Mack would leave that cult years ago. They recruited heavily in Vancouver, where Smallville filmed. Kristin Kreuk got her in. 

This is so wild! ‘Smallville’s Allison Mack, who has always been known as a feminist and a supporter of women’s ri… 

‘Smallville’s Allison Mack ‘2nd In Command’ Of Sex Cult Under Investigation

‘Smallville’s Allison Mack has been accused of allegedly leading a controversial sex cult called NXIVM.

Don’t wanna sound mean but Allison Mack was always “a bit” weird. Her blog entries were always a bit odd.

I confess when SMALLVILLE and VERONICA MARS were both on the air I would always get Kristen Bell and Allison Mack confused

I don’t think I’ll have that problem now

The website is down. It has been down for at least 24 hours.

The Wayback Machine [] has preserved their message. WHAT IS NXIVM?

NXIVM is the turning point – a remarkable development in scientific and psychodynamic understanding, education, and technology that can facilitate this transition so the pattern of humanity’s rises and falls can actually be broken and transformed.
NXIVM represents the change humanity needs in order to alter the course of history.
NXIVM is a new ethical understanding that allows us to build an internal civilization and have it manifest in the external world.
The NXIVM technology is imparted through Executive Success Programs, Inc. – programs that provide the philosophical and practical foundation necessary to acquire and build the skills for success.

  • Who took this photo of Allison? A private investigator? Seems strange someone with a long lens happened to be lurking, recognised a minor celebrity and took it BEFORE the “media frenzy”. Hmmm.

  • Maybe the purpose of Dr. Porter’s sick experiments was to find women who were as detached as Raniere from feeling anything about other peoples pain. Maybe he wants more sociopaths around him. These women don’t seem to care about pain and torture inflicted on others. If people like the Saltzmans, the Bronfmans, and Mack, and the older ladies like Unterreiner are as sociopathic as he is they will never leave him and may not even care about all the press they are getting.

    • That’s exactly what he was doing. Testing to see who could handle what. Based on reactions, certain people were removed from the pool of eligible DOS recruits.


    Edmondson attended her first Executive Success Program — weeklong workshops that scrambled elements of personal growth and psychology in a success coaching curriculum — in 2005. There were some hokey elements to ESP: recruits wear sashes, move up the “striped path,” and are instructed to refer to the program’s mysterious guru-like leader, Keith Raniere, as “Vanguard.”

    “It was cheesy,” says Edmondson of that first workshop held at the Burnaby Holiday Inn. But there was enough to it that somehow, “transformation” happened through a process called “rational inquiry.” She broke through some personal issues. “My experience was really helpful. I just thought it was great.”

    Edmondson was doing what she loved: “Building community.”

    And there were seductive perks: private jets. “Think of me, an aspiring actress, getting flown on a private jet to Alaska. It was exciting.”

    Edmondson was invited into the Nxivm community by Mark Vicente, cinematographer and director of the 2004 hit What the Bleep Do We Know!?

    In an interview from his home in Los Angeles, Vicente, who left the organization in May, said he was originally invited to attend a five-day ESP intensive in 2005.

    It was a heady time for Vicente, who was flying on the tailwinds of the life-changing success of What the Bleep. Opportunities were everywhere and ESP appeared to be a good one. “They were good people involved, who yearned to do good things.”

    They courted him. Love-bombed him. “They were inviting me to things, flying me on private jets. I was thinking, Hey, I can make movies with these guys. I was very excited.”

    He met Edmondson at a film festival, and invited her to a training session. “She was in! She said can we bring this to Vancouver? Sarah and I partnered up, and we were a great team.”

    The Vancouver-Hollywood connection was crucial to the company’s public image. “It added enormous credibility. We had TV stars, movie stars coming in. Star power gets used.”

    Now, says Vicente, he and Edmondson feel a responsibility to get their friends out.

    Slowly, almost imperceptibly, as Vicente was drawn in more deeply, he separated from what he loved: filmmaking. “People said to me later, you were at the peak of something and then you just disappeared.”

    Vicente began to notice changes in the last year or two — the women around Raniere were very skinny. They looked vacant, he said. “It was like Handmaid’s Tale,” says Vicente. “Something weird was going on.”

    He heard rumours that there was a secret underground society within the organization. He began to investigate.

    He talked to Edmondson. Finally, the pressure broke. She told him everything. The branding. The holding people down. The damaging material. The change in her relationship with her coach to a master-slave relationship.

    She showed him the brand. Raniere hadn’t been present at the branding ritual, but Vicente says they both saw that the brand seemed to include his initials: KR.


    He advised her to get out — and he lauds her courage. Although he can’t comment on what actions she has taken, he says, “What was done morally to protect people is very good.”

    What horrifies Vicente is this: “For years I thought I was this noble soldier standing guard outside the Star Trek Federation — a symbol of goodness and ethics. It’s tragic to me, and it’s tragic to Sarah that there are so many people who did this because they trusted us.”

  • Well it looks like Ally has now become expendable to VanDouche. How’s he supposed to now use her to recruit more nubile actresses he wants to have sex with if she’s now “branded” out in the open with worldwide publicity as the head pimp in his sex cult?

  • Hope it worth it Allison… from Gerber baby food commercials to Keith the giddy baby sucking your bank account dry, blowing your career, ruining your self-esteem and nothing but really bad international press to show for it.
    You can’t just leave and say you were a victim at this point. You have helped to harm too many and this breach is massive to heal, if you have it in you.

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.
