Kristin Kreuk’s New Year’s Day Message: ‘I always felt like a shitty person for severing toxic relationships’ — and one reader’s ‘toxic’ observations

Kristin Kreuk offered an Instagram message on New Year’s Day for her fans and followers. Here is what Kreuk had to say:

“Happy New Year, all! I hope 2019 brings closeness, love, success, challenge and ease. I always felt like a shitty person for severing toxic relationships in my life. At 36, I (finally) do not. Baby steps. Ha.

So, the first thing up this year is the Canadian premiere of season 2 of Burden of Truth. And these lovely pics of a (very super extra) glam me! I don’t do many fashion shoots these days, so they feel extra fancy. Thanks to @beyondfashionmagazine for thinking of me and our show😘; I will never be this 😎 in reality. (please note that when reading the article, the word “exotic” should be in quotes– in 1999, this was considered an acceptable way to describe a non-white person)”

Now, here is how this message impressed one of our readers.

Kristin, you’re still too much of a coward to talk about NXIVM.

What toxic relationships did you sever Kristin?

You did not leave NXIVM in 2013. You knew years ago that Keith Raniere was a pedophile and rapist. You did not care. That makes you an extremely shitty person.

You recruited Allison Mack into the cult and did and said absolutely nothing when the branding story broke. You were happy to use your d-list fame to help build up the cult, but refused to use it to draw attention to their crimes.

Instead, you portrayed yourself as the savior of teen girls and a girl born to pedophile rape on a taxpayer-funded television show. That makes you a shitty person.

You have attached yourself to a documentary about a rape victim while ignoring NXIVM. That makes you a shitty person.

You signed an open letter against a man accused of bad behavior against women while ignoring NXIVM, as if you are morally better than him. That makes you a shitty person.

Frank Parlato was the only media person calling you out and you continued and still continue to be a coward. You took zero opportunity to do the right thing as long as your fame and money privileges were protected. That makes you a shitty person.

Now you are saying you don’t even care. That makes you an extremely shitty person.

You are not a victim of NXIVM. You were a willing perpetrator and enabler. You were a big part of it. You don’t get to call anyone toxic when you are a toxic person yourself. If you consider them toxic to you, then you were toxic to them and others. You are no different.

If you had spoken out against NXIVM, perhaps DOS would never have existed. Perhaps all those women would not be branded above their pussies with the initials of a bitch you recruited and a pedophile you followed.

And you don’t care?

Is this fair commentary? Is Kristin Kreuk a coward for not speaking up against the hundreds of women who were abused by Keith Raniere and the woman she recruited into Nxivm, Allison Mack?

Or does she have the right to leave the cult quietly? Move on – even tackle less dangerous issues, less personal.

Can she atone for the harm she did to others by her involvement in – and support of – Nxivm by addressing women’s issues unrelated to Nxivm?

In short, can Kristin Kreuk escape her past?

Kristin Kreuk chose to share a picture of herself, along with her New Year’s Day message of female empowerment and how to be more politically correct.

  • rosena Go get it my friend!! Plus good riddance to the 💩💩💩 and onwards in 💕🌟🎉❤️

    mskristinlkreuk truly. Loves you.

    As if Kreuk is in a position to judge other NXIVM members. Kreuk is hiding because she is not immune from criticism. She has deleted the following comments from her instagram post:

    *** josephimmanuelsuazo@tommyhannah84. imagine if she answered all the questions related to NXVIM. Her situation will be i would say ” cluster fuck “. She seem to virtue signal again. No wonder they call her a virtue signaller

    *** absolutely! 💯she’s as VACUOUS as they come. She played a massive role in NXIVM growing, even drawing in young girls for known peadofile Keith Raniere through one of his home grown ‘teenage girls development programmes’ yet runs from any kind of association. Absolutely shocking

    Other than the branding, what did Allison Mack do and know about that Kreuk didn’t? The same things said about Kreuk, i.e. the Times Union expose, O’Hara’s lawsuit etc are also applicable to Mack.

    That actress Asia Argento had sex with a minor, having spoken out about Harvey Weinstein. When she was called out for her hypocrisy, she went silent like Kreuk, then played the victim card. This is what Kreuk is doing, with her cryptic post and believing she gets to say “good riddance”.

  • I now feel that it doesn’t actually matter if Kreuk never denounces NXIVM, Raniere, or the Salzmans because much like Allison Mack, Nikki Clyne and India Oxenberg, her name will forever be linked to this scandal and there isn’t a damn thing she can do about it. Karma can truly be a beautiful thing.

    • Well said.
      And, I don’t think karma is anywhere near done with Kristin Kreuk.
      I suppose she could help speed along the balancing if she actually came clean, but I doubt she ever will.

      • Karma presupposes the idea of a kind of “hand of justice” that directs the Universe to a balance that it was created and/or exists with. In the human context, Karma guides events to either avenge or correct wrongdoings in the here and now, i.e., “what goes around comes around”. If Kristin didn’t do anything wrong, Karma wouldn’t apply to her and so she would have nothing to fear from it. Karma may include the notion of Grace, where forgiveness can be used to “restore the balance” so to speak if someone has been wronged and chooses to apply it to the one who has wronged them.

          • There was no psychobabble given. It was an explanation that logically followed from existing concepts. I didn’t invent them. I’m sorry that it is beyond your comprehension. Also, I don’t have a beard, have fairer skin, and have never worn a turban as depicted in that emoji.In other words, such a depiction is entirely incongruous with my physicality.

        • The more you talk sultan, the more pretentious you sound. You are like Sheldon Cooper from the Big Bang theory, mixed with a fart under the covers on a warm summers eve.

          As for the emojis, pick one: 👳🏾‍♂️👳🏿‍♀️👳🏾‍♀️👳🏽‍♀️👳🏿‍♂️👳🏽‍♂️

        • Didn’t the Dalai Lama himself call for “TRANSPERANCY” quite deliberately in his 2009 speech attended by Kruek — among other virtue signaling events she made a celebrity appearance at on behalf of her avowed GURU, Keith Raniere, and S&M (BDSM whatever) lifestyle “master” (per FR’s Jane), Mark Hildreth.

          Sara Bronfman and her Lama lover, perchance, make an interesting addition to the Crazy Days and Nights stories — unless there’s an identity mix-up with Kruek. How come her name never pops up there? All a smear on mistress Allie.

          • Dear Mistress A (and to Angry Canadian, too)–
            Isn’t being an anti-virtue signalling crusader itself a form of virtue signalling?

        • No. Being against virtue signalling is not virtue signalling. Being against rape is not rape. Being against Islam does not make you a muslim. 👳🏾‍♂️

          • you fail to grasp the analogy.
            Being against rape of course is not rape, but it is virtue signaling.
            Being against (or for) some issue is virtue signaling , even if it the issue is virtue signaling.
            And a warning to you, being against Islam (in general, not a specific person) is bigotry.

        • “And a warning to you, being against Islam (in general, not a specific person) is bigotry.”

          Being against one of the most cancerous bigoted ideologies in the world where rape, genital mutilation, slavery, beheadings and stoning to death those who are not muslim is not bigotry. Islam is the most intolerant bigoted religion in the world. What’s the punishment for leaving islam? How are Christians treated in muslim majority countries? ….

    • Disagree, Lena. It DOES matter and it matters most to the 100’s of branded and mind-bended, emotionally and physically scarred DOS victims she wittingly or unwittingly helped recruit through her role in GBD.

      That debt Kristin Kruek, INC. owes to those girls to at least explain her own motives for conning them into their present circumstances cannot be counteracted with such blatant hypocritical antics. It is a shame and a sham!

      No matter how fast those comments calling her out as a hypocrite are deleted — not going to erase the reality that that resentment exists. She’s rubbing salt on the slaves wounds. FR readers and truth seekers aren’t going away anytime soon. How ‘bout a sincere statement, Princess? Who’s idea was “Sexy 7”? Who wrote the questions for your 12 – 17 yr. old recruits? Who dangled free cameras to take pictures of their sexy selves and send in like that video showing off the sexy adventurous side of the lass who took the prize? And won herself that free camera?

      What were you and Mark in your past lives again? Didn’t Vanguard “recognize” you?

  • –Is Kristin Kreuk a coward for not speaking up against the hundreds of women who were abused by Keith Raniere and the woman she recruited into Nxivm, Allison Mack?

    A list of all the women she recruited into NXIVM must be given for this question to be faithfully answered. Since it has never been given whenever asked for, nor has anyone ever publicly come forward to the authorities to claim that Kristin was directly or indirectly responsible for their harm, the default position as a result of due process of law is to assume innocence until proven guilty, i.e., that no one was harmed due to her as a result of her recruiting others into NXIVM.

    No one is responsible for Keith’s abuse except himself. Recruitment has never been considered a form of abuse, either as a matter of ethics or law. Assessing whether certain people are enablers of his due to psychological or physical coercion must be determined in a court of law, where substantial evidence must be presented.

    –Or does she have the right to leave the cult quietly?

    Everyone has a right to do whatever they want as long as it’s not illegal. It’s a “free” country within this context.

    –Can she atone for the harm she did to others by her involvement in – and support of – Nxivm by addressing women’s issues unrelated to Nxivm?

    An emotionally loaded question with the presumption of guilt – that she directly or indirectly caused harm to others which has never been legitimately evidenced whatsoever. Innuendo, gossip, and spinning narratives don’t count as the latter.

  • DISRESPECTFULLY keep the post up? Animal right ms seem right next to human rights on your list of priorities. Bring an enabler of NXIUM this really isn’t surprising though right? 💯

    tommyhannah84@sarahwillistanner she agrees it’s wrong and that she was mislead into believing it was FAKE FUR. yet she leaves such a tasteless shot up? It’s a disgrace❗️ I know her z-list career brings little opportunities for these kind of ‘cover shoots’ so she has to grab all she can but, but still!

    josephimmanuelsuazo@tommyhannah84. imagine if she answered all the questions related to NXVIM. Her situation will be i would say ” cluster fuck “. She seem to virtue signal again. No wonder they call her a virtue signaller

    absolutely! 💯she’s as VACUOUS as they come. She played a massive role in NXIVM growing, even drawing in young girls for known peadofile Keith Raniere through one of his home grown ‘teenage girls development programmes’ yet runs from any kind of association. Absolutely shocking

  • I guess it wouldn’t be the Frank Report if Frank didn’t choose to publish posts filled with assumptions and unsubstantiated claims from obsessed, mentally ill haters. How pathetic is this person’s life that they choose to spend their time stalking someone that triggers them to such a disturbing degree. And Kruek hasn’t ignored NXIVM; she made a statement on March 29, 2018 against NXIVM/DOS and in support of its victims. I just checked, and it’s still up on her Twitter and IG accounts. If people choose not to believe what she wrote in that statement, don’t see why anything else she said would change that.

    But since Frank asked if it’s fair “commentary,” I’ll say:

    If Frank considers himself a coward and an extremely shitty person for not speaking against the cult until 7 years after he was fired and only after he was indicted in 2015, then it might be considered fair commentary.

    If Frank thinks Catherine Oxenberg is a coward for leaving the cult quietly in 2013 like Kruek did, then this might be considered fair commentary.

    If Frank thinks Catherine Oxenberg is an extremely shitty person for recruiting her daughter and leaving her with a rapist and pedophile for 4 years to be starved, branded, and fucked in mind and body then this might be considered fair commentary.

    If Frank thinks India Oxenberg is an extremely shitty person for not speaking out against the cult and trying to save the remaining DOS slaves then perhaps this is fair commentary.

    What might be fair and improve the articles on this site would be only posting “commentary” from those who provide their actual names. Since Shadow and Shitter here don’t actually have any inside information, and aren’t whistleblowers it’s not like their identities need to be protected. Shitter especially has nothing to fear from NXIVM seeing as their favorite thing to do is try and discredit and smear those like Dones, Edmondson and Kreuk that have spoken out against the cult.

      • Sorry, this person is not me. This person does not write quite like me and has written such words before. But apparently it is someone who has a robust intellect and is personally offended by the persistent and repetitive attacks on Kristin. Thus, I can see why you think it would be me. Perhaps it is even someone who personally knows or had known her.

    • Just as I value outside views, so should you. I’m here because I was struck with the similarities regarding what I experienced while in Amway, and when I found out Raniere started with Amway, it all made much more sense. But you can have whatever stupid opinion of me you want, it’s a free country. Including the right to be stupid.

    • My comments in brackets [Brilliance.].

      I guess it wouldn’t be the Frank Report if Frank didn’t choose to publish posts filled with assumptions and unsubstantiated claims from obsessed, mentally ill haters. [What’s wrong with free speech and having opinions? After all, it’s your opinion that the commenter is obsessed and mentally ill.]

      How pathetic is this person’s life that they choose to spend their time stalking someone that triggers them to such a disturbing degree. [Commenting on a (minor) celebrity’s social media post is pathetic, considered stalking, and disturbing? You sound obsessed and mentally ill to me.]

      And Kruek hasn’t ignored NXIVM; she made a statement on March 29, 2018 against NXIVM/DOS and in support of its victims. [Valid point, but it’s likely she knows a lot more than her vague comments suggest.]

      I just checked, and it’s still up on her Twitter and IG accounts. [Why wouldn’t it still be posted? She says very little in terms of specifics.]

      If people choose not to believe what she wrote in that statement, don’t see why anything else she said would change that. [I think people believe what she said, it’s what she left out in terms of specifics that they’re upset about.]

      But since Frank asked if it’s fair “commentary,” I’ll say: [You like to use your first amendment/free speech right, you just have an issue with others doing the same.]

      If Frank considers himself a coward and an extremely shitty person for not speaking against the cult until 7 years after he was fired and only after he was indicted in 2015, then it might be considered fair commentary. [Frank wasn’t sued until 2012, does everyone else speak up on a blog when they are fired? I know I would be inclined to push back when indicted, which he did after he was indicted, and which I did when I was sued by Amway in 2010. However, I did start pushing back in 2005 when I found out about Amway’s tool scam, but it was mostly against the upline, until I found out Amway was in on it as well.]

      If Frank thinks Catherine Oxenberg is a coward for leaving the cult quietly in 2013 like Kruek did, then this might be considered fair commentary. [It depends on what each of them knew when they left. You can’t hold either of them responsible for what they didn’t know at the time they left.]

      If Frank thinks Catherine Oxenberg is an extremely shitty person for recruiting her daughter and leaving her with a rapist and pedophile for 4 years to be starved, branded, and fucked in mind and body then this might be considered fair commentary. [See above, although for a longer and later time period, and there could be an immunity deal that includes staying silent until the trial.]

      If Frank thinks India Oxenberg is an extremely shitty person for not speaking out against the cult and trying to save the remaining DOS slaves then perhaps this is fair commentary. [See above,]

      What might be fair and improve the articles on this site would be only posting “commentary” from those who provide their actual names. [I’ve supported this view for a very long time, Anonymous! Note your hypocrisy, it’s obvious. I’ve also gone on record as saying a consistent, verifiable fake name is acceptable.]

      Since Shadow and Shitter here don’t actually have any inside information, and aren’t whistleblowers it’s not like their identities need to be protected. [I will assume I am the person you are referring to as “Sh!tter” because I am so well loved on this website; I may not have strict inside information, but the reason I’m here is because I noticed how similar NXIVM and Amway operate, and then found that Raniere started his MLM career with Amway and applied those principles to NXIVM. Therefore, i have insights that most cannot have.]

      Shitter especially has nothing to fear from NXIVM seeing as their favorite thing to do is try and discredit and smear those like Dones, Edmondson and Kreuk that have spoken out against the cult. [Actually, my goal is to get all of the facts on the table, instead of being a “cheerleader” for any side. Only by asking questions can the proper credibility be determined. Asking questions does not constitute smearing, unless you’re a snowflake.]

  • Female celebrities claim they are against the sexualisation of women in the entertainment industry and blame men, yet they are 100% responsible and are the ones who do it to themselves. In this photo shoot, kreuk shows a bit of side ass. When a celebrity shows off cleavage, ass, legs etc and in a sexualised manner by choice, why do they still complain? Attention.

  • Is it possible that… 1) KK wanted out of nxivm due to no longer wanting to be a part of Keith’s sex circle.
    2) Keith says “no way, unless you bring me someone of equal value to take your place”
    3) KK suggests AM as her replacement to Keith.
    4) Keith agrees.
    5) KK recruits AM.
    6.) KK leaves nxivm.
    Just a thought.
    What do other readers think?

    • Agree, Lala. Way overproduced. She’s only 36 not a 1000-year-old-vamp.

      The fur thing was prolly intended to stir controversy and draw hits. Who let the PETA dogs out?

      Insofar as Kruek’s NX culpability, she’s a former child ACTRESS with an overbearing Stage-Dad and ProductionpCompany, professional publicists etc. calling the shots. Actresses tend to take direction and please their employers, fans are secondary.

      Although, I’m certain THAT GIRL with her voracious reading habits must be intelligent and self-determined and empowered as Sultan would have us believe. (Sarcasm.)

      So, it WAS Kristin Kruek who devised and composed the “Sexy 7” GBD site all on her own and whatever hint of impropriety exists therewith is what’s in YOUR dirty head. (Tee, hee!)

      • Kristin was never a “child” actress. Though still a minor, Kristin started acting when she was in high school and won a role on the series Edgemont in her senior year. Therefore, her father could never be a “stage-dad”. She was also an adult by the time she started working on Smallville. Allison Mack was the child actress.

        If you want to spitefully criticize someone like a gossip rag, at least get the facts right. But then again, gossip rags often care little about the facts.

      • “Insofar as Kruek’s NX culpability, she’s a former child ACTRESS with an overbearing Stage-Dad and ProductionpCompany, professional publicists etc. calling the shots. Actresses tend to take direction and please their employers, fans are secondary.”

        No doubt, actresses take direction, but how do you know Kreuk had an overbearing stage dad?

        • Ask Sultan. And there’s a stage daddy- daughter Hollywood theme going on with JLO and her Scientology (I think Orange or Dianne notes) pops, the same Mexican Lopez who’s throwing Stones at Peterson.

          Btw, “Maid in Manhattan” — poor Mexi maid finds true love shacking up with rich US politician in a hotel room — was far more slack for Schwarzenegger friendly than #metoo appropriate, insofar as JLO’s project picks go.

  • What “toxic” relationships could Kristin have had?
    With Mark Hildreth? NXIVM? Keith Raniere? Nancy Salzman? Ally Wack? Angry Canadian?
    Take your pick—doesn’t have to be sexual…

    • You are right. It could be anyone. But it is cryptic why she would make a public New Year’s statement through her Instagram account about severing toxic relationships. I wonder to who or whom she is referring to.

  • Despite KK being listed as Mack’s “recruiter” maybe it isn’t really true, according to Wiki: “In 2006, actress Kristin Kreuk became involved with NXIVM, and Salzman and her daughter Lauren went to Vancouver to recruit Kreuk’s Smallville costar Allison Mack. The younger Salzman (herself a junior NXIVM leader) bonded with Mack and the latter became involved.”

    • Yup. Thanks for that reminder that LAUREN SALZMAN and Mother Prefect herself, Nancy, made a special delivery trip to reinforce Allison’s recruitment. Susan Dones witnessed, recounted some of that effort to bag Allie coming out of Cult-central in Albany.

      Next thing ya know they’re partying at Necker with the Salinas gang — like to turn those gay boys straight!

      • “Next thing ya know they’re partying at Necker with the Salinas gang — like to turn those gay boys straight!”

        John Tigue did say sex went on before they got down to business, creating the executive board, coming up with money laundering operations etc. Did Kreuk and Mack play with Emiliano’s little gay penis?

  • She is wearing real animal fur in that picture.

    In the comments:

    “caprice_zombieIt’s extremely sad and disappointing that you’d agree to wear real fur. It’s 2019 and the cruelty of the fur industry is pretty much common knowledge. How can anyone support such a disgusting industry? They make their money by torturing animals to make clothing that isn’t necessary for anyone and that only rich people can afford.”

    “lucymezahebel@mskristinlkreuk is that real fur ?. ..if it is, it would be heartbreaking.”

    alissa_marzot@lucymezahebel I am wondering the same 😰

    alissa_marzot@caprice_zombie I am really hoping it’s not real! 🙏🏼 I am scrolling through comments to see if anyone else cared and I’m glad there’s a few of us! It’s a gorgeous photo and I hope hope hope it’s faux fur.

    lucymezahebel@alissa_marzot I’m glad because is something so cruel that is.a.good thing that people wonder about it.

    caprice_zombie@alissa_marzot it is real unfortunately. If you look at the credits underneath the photo it links to the Instagram of the company that made it. I assumed it was fake at first too because most people these days don’t support such an awful I industry. I made sure to double check before I posted my comment

    ——-

    Kreuk said:

    “mskristinlkreuk@caprice_zombie you are absolutely right! I made an assumption that it was fake. I will not do that again. Thank you for calling me out.”.

    But she keeps the photo up? 🤔 Quick to respond to that but not women getting ouchies and booboos from NXIVM. 🤔

  • I hope 2019 brings an indictment with Kristin Crook’s name on it.

    I can use the word exotic with or without quotes, in 2019.

    If Crook did not leave NXIVM in 2013, when did she leave, and what is your evidence?

    What is your evidence that Crook “…knew years ago that Keith Raniere was a pedophile and rapist?” Information being on the internets is very weak evidence that she knew, as those involved in MLM scams are encouraged to stay off of the internets, especially regarding the company they are involved with. I know this from my Amway experience.

    Do you also blame Mrs. Hitler when she gave birth to little baby Adolf?

    Crook did put out a statement shortly after the DOS story broke.

    I think Crook should be punished IF the evidence is present, I just haven’t seen anything compelling yet. Color me reasonable.

      • “Factual”. Now that IS hilarious coming in the comment section of an article written by the same individual who keeps regurgitating the same putrid venom against Kristin that makes him sound like nothing more than a whiny toddler throwing a temper tantrum – except he’s supposed to be an adult. Perhaps this guy is just one of those toxic relationships she speaks of. Sure sounds like it to me.
