Mexican media is abuzz with news that famed Polish-Mexican actress, Ludwika Paleta, has been banned on Televisa.
Paleta is the wife of Emiliano Salinas, the Mexican leader of the sex-slaver cult, NXIVM. Emiliano is son of former Mexican President Carlos Salinas – and leads the Mexican branch of the cult that brands and blackmails women.
It is unclear why Televisa, the largest Mexican television station, banned Paleta, but the company blacklisted others before her for reasons known only to Televisa.
Ludwika may have gotten the boot because of her connection to the cult of Keith Raniere, who is now jailed in Brooklyn, having been denied bail and awaiting trial for sex trafficking and forced labor charges.
Paleta owns a $500,000 home near Albany within short walking distance to both Raniere’s home and his secret sex lair on Hale Court that was recently raided by the FBI.
Although married to Salinas, like other cult couples, Ludwika and Emiliano do not enjoy monogamy. Emiliano has had a longstanding affair with his male business partner, Alejandro Betancourt. Paleta reportedly has had discreet affairs with multiple men including actor Mark Hildreth, a member of the sex slaver cult, who reportedly quit last year when Raniere snatched away his girlfriend and branded her with his initials.
Emiliano is said to be under investigation by the FBI and may be apprehended for any number of crimes that witnesses say he committed for his master, Raniere. On May 4, Assistant US Attorney Moira Penza informed the judge in the Raniere case that more indictments are expected in about a month.
Paleta has not been seen in Albany since Raniere was arrested in Mexico on March 25. It is not known if Paleta is branded with Raniere’s initials.
In the aftermath of Raniere’s arrest, Emiliano Salinas tried to distance himself from NXIVM, telling the Mexican media he no longer has anything to do with Raniere and has given up his NXIVM franchises.
Sources tell Frank Report that Salinas privately told NXIVM members he still runs NXIVM Mexico. Seagram’s heiress, Clare Bronfman, is running the sex-slaver cult’s worldwide operations now.
Emi Salinas – whose father, Carlos, is one of the most feared man in Mexico – known mainly for his murderous tendencies – which started when he killed his first female at the age of four – uses the Salinas reputation for spilling blood to keep Mexican NXIVM members silent and within the dark folds of the cult.
As far as Televisa is concerned, Ludwika went to the station to do an interview with Paola Rojas. Just before she was to set to appear, Rojas was informed Ludwika could not go on the air. As reported by the newspaper El Universal, Paleta was not aware in advance of the ban. According to media reports, production people notified her driver that Ludwika could not go inside since she was on a list of banned actors.
When Paleta was informed of the ban, she spoke with senior executives to see if they could make an exception and they told her “no” that the actress was forbidden from appearing on any television program of Televisa’s.
“Ludwika had to go to her home,” reported El Gran Diario de México.
More Executive Success! Apparently there’s no end?
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.
