Christine Marie commends Angela Ucci for ‘brave stand’

When Keith Raniere saw Christine Marie he said he knew at once she was the chosen one. She didn't agree and escaped back in 1998

Christine Marie is refering to Angela Ucci’s comments,  Angela Ucci: ‘Outs herself’; clarifies and defends Bouchey against critics

By Christine Marie

This is amazing.

What a brave and classy thing to do – sacrifice your anonymity to set the record straight for a fellow NXIVM survivor whose reputation was being unfairly, brutally and repeatedly knifed.

I hope that a public apology will be forthcoming, that Frank will delete the reposting of the false and negative comments designed to diminish from the positive post about Barbara, and that Frank will put new terms & conditions in place to make it a violation to do unfounded personal attacks against survivors.


The cruel ways that this “knifing committee” has treated her (and I’m not singling out Susan), but frankly, this is an epic story in and of itself.

Angela, may your post be the beginning of a change, an increase in ethical behavior and support that survivors have for each other. I am hoping for more kindness, honesty, unity and love.

What is going on here — at least what I HOPE is going on here, is the removal of this evil man, Keith Raniere, from society and locking him and his accomplices up in prison for a very long time, and doing this before anyone else dies, including children because of their being in servitude to these ridiculous groups he/they has/have created for them. The Frank Report is the only site that is fully devoted to exposing these cretins who are benefitting from the ugly and rancid reality that’s been created. Intra group infighting is useless… but I suppose necessary as the whole Raniere enterprise implodes in on itself, but these bitch fights should not be the primary focus.

It appears the knife has been stabbed in both Susan’s and Barbara’s back. There is a lot of blaming going both ways and personally I’m sick of hearing about it and want to move on.

Barbara’s need for validation from her friends is apparent; it’s how she was in NXIVM her entire time. Always make a problem when she wasn’t treated like the queen bee.

Personally I think Frank should take anything that has to do with Barbara Bouchey off the blog, I was sick of her in NXIVM and I’m sick of reading about her or seeing her face on the Blog.

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.
