How Allison Mack Tried to Persuade Other Celebrities to Join NXIVM

By Kristina White

Today, the involvement of “Smallville” star Allison Mack in NXIVM, which is now more often called a “cult” than “a company whose mission is to raise human awareness, foster an ethical humanitarian civilization, and celebrate what it means to be human”, is much discussed.

The actress was accused of recruiting women slaves to the community, which were “exploited, both sexually and for their labor”. However, Allison also tried to persuade some of her colleagues to join NXIVM. And we are going to talk about that right now.

Why Celebrities Were Important for Keith Raniere and His Company?

We all know that by inviting a celebrity to an advertising campaign, you have more chances to attract attention to your business and products. The famous faces help to sell more. And that was the main reason why it was important for NXIVM to have followers among celebrities. We know that among famous members of the company were Nicki Clyne, Kristin Kreuk and Grace Park.

Though the names of the celebrities weren’t used in NXIVM pamphlets, people could see their faces in group photos and so, the advertising worked pretty well. One of the members of the cult shared: “I definitely think they [celebrities] were used as a marketing tool to create validity for what we were doing”.

When the celebrities started to join NXIVM, the dynamic of the group culture changed a lot. More and more young women, artists and simply rich and influential people became members and influenced other people to join them.

What Celebrities Were Invited to NXIVM?

Clearly, we don’t know how many famous people were invited to the group, however, some Allison’s attempts were public, for instance in case with Emma Watson. Also, some celebrities told about the offers to become NXIVM members themselves.

Emma Watson

In 2016, Mack tried to contact Emma Watson via Twitter 3 times. She chose the Harry Potter star maybe because of her social activity. Emma is a well-known advocate for human rights and gender equality.

“@EmWatson I’m a fellow actress like yourself & involved in an amazing women’s movement I think you’d dig. I’d love to chat if you’re open” – such was a message, sent to Watson by Allison Mack in the hope to make her one of the members of NXIVM.

Samia Shoaib

Samia Shoaib and Allison Mack got acquainted in 2013 at an audition, after which Allison sent “frantic” emails to her colleague. Samia told: “I wish I could tell you alarm bells went off, but they really didn’t. She was a very sweet girl”.

Allison wanted Shoaib to join a NXIVM-affiliated group of “a bunch of women … we share our experiences and support each other”, but the actress found her attempts desperate and never agreed for the offer.

Kelly Clarkson

 In 2013, Allison Mack tried to get in touch with singer Kelly Clarkson. She tweeted at Clarkson: “I heard through the grapevine that you’re a fan of Smallville. I’m a fan of yours as well! I’d love to chat sometime”.

The singer never answered to Mack. However, one of her fans answered after Mack’s arrest: “Dear 5 years ago Kelly, DON’T! Love, Max”.

Catherine Oxenberg’s Daughter

Catherine Oxenberg, the star of “Dynasty”, shared that she and her daughter, India, attended one of the NXIVM meetings in 2011, believing that it was a self-help and female empowerment-based meeting.

Catherine refused to join the program, but her daughter got interested in it. She spent much money on the classes while her mother tried not to interfere. But she did intervene after one of her close friends, who had been involved with NXIVM, told her to save her daughter.

All in all, Allison Mack was released from federal custody on $5 million bail. She states that she is not guilty, but she still can get to prison after the court verdict. Many people consider Allison not only a recruiter, but also a victim of NXIVM. But many facts still remain unclear and much more truth will be revealed soon.

  • Well researched article appeared today on Hollywood Reporter. Her Darkest Role: Actress Allison Mack’s Descent From ‘Smallville’ to Sex Cult – The Hollywood Reporter

  • Wow I’m surprised Shadowstate didn’t jump all over this in his usually obsessed manner. He must be on a hiatus or has a saw wang from fapping too much over AM pics.

  • She also tried to recruit journalists/writers. On twitter, they were sharing screenshots. But honestly, celebrity followers get more people to join; look at scientology, or hell, even Herbalife.

    • One female writer approached by Maniac Mack responded after learning about the branding and slavery, “Boy, did I dodge a bullet there.”

      • Did you see the one where she was playing coy about asking one of them to a meeting. She said something about how Mark was teasing her about being shy about asking this write to go (the way she went about made me think she was going to ask her on a date). Then she went on to say she was going to act like a big girl and ask the writer to attend the women’s empowerment meeting. If you have to say you need to “act like a big girl,” your empowerment group is a fucking joke.

        • I saw an interview with the Pakistani actress Samia Shoaib, an Allison Mack target, where Mack brought along another woman to the recruitment meeting and Mack was stiff and the other woman was silent but apparently mesmerized by Mack.
          Shoaib said Allison Mack “love bombed” Shoaib to get her to join the women’s empowerment group.

  • We have read that after she left NXIVM, Kristin Kreuk tried to intervene and get Ally Wack out too. I wonder if Allison was so mindfucked that she tried to convince Kristin to come back in…and reap the joys of DOS?

    I think AM did try…unless she feared KR would prefer Kristin Kreuk to her.

    • Allison Mack is so wacked out of reality that she fails to recognize that Raniere is a charlatan, con artist, fraud and swindler.

      The woman loves Raniere even though he is a pervert and child molester.

      You can’t fix stupid and you can’t fix insane.

      Watch this video where Raniere pontificates about “authenticity” while Allison Mack is on the verge of tears.

      • After that comment was on the post for over an hour, the website changed the capitalization…..”why” is the question that should be asked.

        • The question was directed to you. What was the point of writing KRisten KReuk by capitalizing the first two letters of her name to correspond with Keith Raniere’s initials? I’ve seen it done before on this website so I am assuming you are the same person who did it before.

          The question was not why it was changed by an editor of this website (presumably) to the correct casing.

          • Ask Keith Raniere.
            It is rumored that’s how he spelled Kreuk’s name. Maybe he was casting an evil “spell” on her to lure her into his harem.

    “Season One of The Fall [of NXIVM] podcast will launch Valentine’s Day, 2019, followed by the publication of our book The Fall: Toni Natalie’s Saga to Survive Keith Raniere and NXIVM.”

    There is also a Twitter account @thefallofNXIVM

    Toni Natalie lived the pre-history of NXIVM and has been hounded by Raniere’s flying monkeys and lawyers for nearly 20 years. Chet Hardin was one of the first Albany journalists to expose NXIVM. This will be an interesting perspective, different from the Sarah Edmondson TV series (that I’m also looking forward to) and the other media anouncements (that may just be cashing on on celebrity involvement)

      • Hostess grew up in a cult.

        Toni tells tales of Consumer Buy Line to National Health Network to NXIVM transition.

        Toni says Nancy Salzman was a NHN customer and friend whose reaction to Toni’s description of her relationship with Raniere was “He’s a sociopath”

        Four days later, Nancy had glazed eyes and was Raniere’s partner and said it was Toni who had the”issues.”

    • Looking forward to the book in 2019. It should have great perspective. A good book cannot be dashed off – it takes a lot of work – research, interviewing, fact checking, editing. I have a book on Jim Jones that is nearly 600 pages long, set in small type.
