Dani Padilla was known to have lived in the apartment that Kathy Russell leased.

Breaking News: Kathy Russell May Not Have Used Apartment With Kinky Messages on Refrigerator

While Kathy Russell is still in the running for Nxivm Super Freak #1, information obtained by Frank Report today suggests she may not have been the one who put the creepy, sex-loaded magnet messages on the refrigerator of the apartment she leased under a fictitious name.

While Kathy Russell may have been an eager participant in threesomes with Keith Raniere and other women, she may not have filled a refrigerator with alphabet magnets spelling out dirty messages.

Frank Report learned that Russell claims she never used the apartment in Clifton Park and did not know who its occupants were. In other words, she was a fall girl for Keith Raniere, who used it to house a DOS slave who was illegally in the USA.

On May 31, during the trial of Raniere, the owner of the building, Sheila Jelonek, was called to the witness stand. Jelonek testified that Kathy rented the apartment under a fake name – “Kathleen O’Sullivan” – and paid some $11,000 in cash in advance – yearly [Kathy met Jelonek at Starbucks annually – and gave her a paper bag with the cash in it]. Kathy told Jelonek she was a rich widow.

Jelonek further testified that she did not find Kathy in the apartment [not that she visited it often] but did find Daniella Padilla there [Padilla is the DOS first-line slave who bought the cage, paddles and other sex toys online for DOS].  Padilla, who is native of Mexico, said she was housesitting for Kathy [O’Sullivan].

A tubby Keith Raniere takes a stroll with DOS slave Dani Padilla, a woman who likely was on low calorie, garlic-free diet.

After renting the apartment to “Kathleen O’Sullivan” for several years, Jelonek had difficulty in contacting her in mid-2018. So, she went to  inspect the apartment and took a video camera with her to film its condition.

DOS members Sarah Edmondson [defected], Allison Mack [convicted] and Dani Padilla. Allison and Dani were first-line DOS slaves.
The video, which was shown to jurors, showed the apartment had black drapes and blinds, a tripod for a camera next to a bed. On a bulletin board was a pinned up picture of Raniere. On the refrigerator was a display of alphabet magnets spelling out a series of crude and juvenile messages such as “Slap my heinie,” “Hard on,” “I Suck Big Hard Dick,” “Jzm” and “Tight Pussy.”

It was not immediately clear why Jelonek was called to testify.

The Vanguard Pinup found in the apartment rented by Kathy Russell under an assumed name. 

But Frank Report has learned that her testimony sets the foundation for what we believe will be evidence introduced later that Russell was ordered to lease the property by Raniere – and that it was used to house the DOS slave who was not legally in the United States.

It appears Kathy was used as a shill to rent the apartment for Raniere and that she did not know about the use of it or even who used it.  Kathy did not live in the apartment. Kathy further claims she did not even know about DOS for she was never asked to join it.

Frank Report also learned the prosecution has text messages between the DOS slave who was illegally in the US and was living in the apartment and Raniere which show he knew where she was living and was aware of her illegal status.

In short, evidence will likely show that Raniere knew all and arranged the entire matter to further his racketeering, sex trafficking and forced labor goals as he has done for years for sex, power, vengeance, and money.

It looks like it wasn’t Kathy, after all, who put these spicy messages on the refrigerator of an apartment she leased in a phony name.

  • Frank – WTF is going on with all of the recent Heidi comments? As a regular reader, even I’m lost. Is there any way you can either write an article about them, or give her the floor to do so? It all appears either wildly important or too bizarre to ignore.

    Heidi seems to be laying out so many conspiracy theories/accusations/facts/guesses/wonderiings/explanations/disclosures/updates etc. etc., that I think we’d all appreciate either cliff notes, a bow wrapped around the entirety, or even a novel we can peruse.

    • “Frank – WTF is going on with all of the recent Heidi comments?”

      Nutjob, Every family has its tragedies.
      I can not begin to imagine that terrible tragedy that Heidi has had to cope with for years.
      While I don’t agree with everyone she says, I try to respect her for what she has endured.
      Please give her that much credit and tolerate her eccentricities.

      • My honesty is meant as a sign of respect towards Heidi. I genuinely want to know the many things she is trying to get across.

        She is telling us A LOT.

        I appreciate Heidi more than anyone else on this blog. Certainly more than people who obsess over celebrities and clog the comment section with mysogynistic lies.

        And stop quoting me out of context you, POS. Why don’t you go comment on the Rhiannon thread and rip her a new one for not wearing the wire? Never before seen a manure residing loser who pretends to ride a high horse like you do.

        • Nutjob. Thank you for asking the question. I ditto you. I have been reading FR for over a year and a half and trying to tie together all the Heidi pieces. I think she is really great, fearless and I respect her voice. She has alot to say and I want to understand all that she is conveying. I suspect somewhere out there on the internet is Heidi history but it feels intrusive for me seek it out.

          • Totally agree, MO. If I had hours to spend on FR, the one thing I’d do is find all the Heidi comments and try to mold them together.

          • I thank you as well. The comments are troubling and seem to be addressing someone else out there who is a potential threat. I hope that Frank is watching over her in some capacity, which I feel is likely, as he is a real man. Predictably, books will be written about this evil group. If I read any of them, it would be hers. (As for Mark Vincente’s HBO deal, if I have the network correct, after all the recent exposure of Ramtha I’ll take a hard pass on his. Yes, he was excellent in the witness chair and was smart enough to know when to blow the cult. However, there are problems there, and may continue to be problems.) Hopefully the Son of Sam law in NY state will prevent any of the convicted from ever profiting off their own crimes.

          • Totally agree. I believe she has been through hell and is one of the many victims in this nightmare and not just in relation to Gina. I truly feel for her and would care to know her entire story.

    • Oh great. Now we’re gonna hear more conspiracies about those dudes Sandweg and Denny Burke.

      Heidi seems to view these 2 assholes as responsible for everything wrong in the world. She seems to think they spy on her and keep up with her every move.

      In reality, I have a hard time believing that these guys would care one iota about what Heidi is doing since she’s not involved in any ACTIVE cases which would impact these guys. Methinks that Sandweg and Burke probably haven’t even THOUGHT about Heidi for at least 5 years since she poses no threat to them.

      She’s a mom in LA. They are attorneys. Why the fuck would they care about HH?

      Talk about narcissism. Narcissism is believing that others in the world can’t stop thinking about you. 🙂

    • ‘or even a novel we can peruse.’ – I am willing to pre-order!! Heidi is an interesting and talented woman.

  • There is just something in Keith Raniere’s sperm that once inside a woman must do some kind of long term damage.

    The more of Raniere’s sperm a woman takes inside her the crazier she seems to get.

    It appears only those who had sex with Raniere were the cra cra’s from NXIVM. Not many seem to have recovered from their long term relationships with this guy.

  • So Kathy Russell might have just been the tool that used laundered money to pay the rent of one of possibly many sex dens for Keith and the DOS crew. The question is does that mean Kathy was nothing more than the mule, or was she a lot more involved in DOS than we currently know? At this point I doubt she didn’t know about DOS, and Kinky Kathy was obviously part of Keith’s harem even if she wasn’t part of the later labeled slave / slave master cult.

  • Interesting. Daniela Padilla Bergeron “owned”- 8 Raleigh Court which is over near Wilton Court (wilton court is accessed from Raleigh) where the other Dani and her family lived. – The carriage home was purchased in her name 6/8/2012 and published in the real estate transactions on 6/25/2012: 8 Raleigh Court Daniela Bergeron for $178,500. It was sold fall 2018 for over 200K.

    The condo Kinky Kathy rented out for whatever reason was located in the Knox Woods Association known as Victory Way. Victory Way is the next Association east of Flintlock and also right across the street from Hale (as is Flintlock) – Here is a link for those who want to visualize

    The KW neighborhood watch committee including the bunker commander reports that Keith was often seen coming out of Victory Way and walking towards Flintlock.

  • So Kathy did not put the magnets up on the refrigerator?

    My guess is that Raniere is actually the one that arranged the magnets. It’s not something a woman would usually do it’s too vulgar.

    Kathy did coerce a young woman to engage in sex acts with her and Keith Raniere using the fact that the young woman was an illegal alien and should be greatful.

  • Je-sus Christ! That pic is the spitting image of a sepia pic of Christ in a Mormon chapel Gina I spent most of our childhood years in but blended with the colors of a picture of the Virgin Mary that hung in our Grandmothers house.

    My ex-husband’s brother owns, inherited a huge, multi-national commercial photo business in Miami, FL.

    How long has that pic been there in the apartment? When was it first rented? We need to talk Kathy!

    The other thing I found that I probably should not have filed in our “Mexican divorce” case in LA were two plane ticket receipts to Mexico in both their names. I assumed they were hiding the $8M from only ME and in MX for the TELMEX project. But my ex’s brother had nothing to do with our Telmex project, otherwise.

    Isn’t it strange that PAM
    had $8M? The same figure on the check I found and filed? The Court did not calculate that into our son’s support — I’m “poor as a church mouse” myself.

    Something my Mom used to always say just like KAR himself did in his renunciation days.

    • Just a quick greetings to say I hope things are well with you and have calmed last since we exchanged comments. All the best.

  • Slap my Heine! Shave me and teach me to walk backwards.

    I dunno Parlato. I hear Spanish ladies don’t describe their asses as Heineys. That sounds like Super Freak Kathy ‘Elephant Ear Vag’ Russell.

    Who the fk uses the word Heiny? 1950s throwbacks and failed ballerinas, that’s who.

    And people that pay for rent in paper bags, a year in advance. Say it ain’t so Franky Boy. That’s not spicious at all.

    • Hmm. I know a movie producer who fits that description to a “T” and who has CIA and Secret Service connections who are now “retired” and mostly living in the Southwest — Texas and thereabouts. Might even know Dennis Burke. Certainly someone in Burke’s CIRCLES.

      We want an NDNY and New York State investigation into the NXIVM deaths!

      And we want John Tighe’s case re-opened for a proper investigation.

      • Doesn’t the CIA and Hollywood have a connection? The CIA spreading propaganda thru shitty films. Subversion.

        • cia hollyweird mku tavistock <===id say they are all connected especially to the darker arts of human trafficking organ trafficking drugs and war related ratline meyhem

    • “And people that pay for rent in paper bags, a year in advance. ”
      “That’s not spicious at all.”

      People who travel a lot or money launder do pay apartment rent a year in advance.

    • There you go again, Deezy. Why are we so reluctant to use the fk word full on, now? I forgot. (HA!)

      Oh, yeah, now I remember. ‘‘Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house not a creature was stirring except for Mom’s mouse. “D-man” was nestled all snug in his bed while visions of “Mano” danced in his head. When what to Mom’s wondering eyes should appear but a fight between titans all dressed in spy gear…

      It’s bc you’re a God-guy, Deez, an upright God-fearing VIP who goes to church every Easter and thinks it’s ok to post pics of “Deez” shooting FR down and bodies laying in pools of blood [mentioning my name thereto and trying to link me to FR as Frank’s “sidekick” under your Bangkok and SULTAN alias’ — which are compounding by the hour on here and appear whenever my ex knows I’m online — but you can’t quite bring yourself to spell it out. It’s F-U-C-K as in go fuck yourselves.

      And you don’t eat beef, like that nasty steak-gobbler, Jeff Peterson, either. Do you, per chance, eat pork?

      What’s up, “Wasabi Steak?” “Jane” you and “Frenchie” might wanna start looking into some BDSM clubs before you and your Mexican slaves that keep you looking so neat and tidy and young and sweet and innocent, wipe “D’s” SNT out.

      Over my dead body. And, you’re not gonna frame Frank or me or Chitra or FR, either. Despite “J’s” connections. Keep it up, hon, you’ll never work in this town again.

      And, congrats, you prolly took the Aurealia Foundation down between your and Lisa’s “Bouncing Back” ambitions. And, believe it or not, I had nada to do with it.

      I’m just a good ol’ gal fighting MLM’s, government corruption in the Just-ICE system and trying to find the RAT who knows who murdered my sister.

  • So this was misdirection? Kathy Russell doesn’t like penis or cunninglingus ? That Raniere has one sick mind if he was the one who did the arranging on the refrigerator.

    • ALL RISE and swear to the truth. Girls all over Cohoes and Clifton Park, NY had word salad fridge magnets they “arranged” in the style of the King’s speech and when they were being naughty they might have “strung swear words together like Christmas Lights,” — Senator Gillibrand’s own Mommy, Polly wanna cracker, did.

      Baby soft-voiced KAR did not inherit Polly’s gift for shock jock, jackhammer politics either. Say, you know who else used to swear her ass off while First Lady in the Whitehouse? (Sumthin’ the Secret Service agents we knew while producing “In the Line of Fire,” told me).

      We want an EDNY investigation not NXIVM BULLSHIT! Tell that to your buddy, Gavin, Jeff.

      • “you know who else used to swear her ass off while First Lady in the Whitehouse? (Sumthin’ the Secret Service agents we knew while producing “In the Line of Fire,” told me).’

        Hillary Rodham Clinton.
        Hillary swears so much she would make a sailor blush.

  • Nxivm was much more than a “sex cult” Thats a nice tag for the media, but misses the point on many fronts. As well as being a sex cult, it was also a massive hoax. The vision of little Keith that was pushed into peoples faces was a hoax. That person never existed. His road to “integration” was a hoax. Nobody got integrated – least of all little Keith, so there’s another hoax. He was nothing more than a conman, with an inner circle of co-conspirators and (mostly female) bag men. It was also Keith’s money laundering and smuggling scheme. I could go on, but I just wanted to say that focussing on the sex cult description, might make people overlook the many other crimes that took place.

    • It doesn’t end with Keith’s vision. Keith’s visions were heavily facilitated from the get-go by not only “Clare’s sin” but by the Sinclair media group and other large companies, including Face Book, that helped stage Clare’s own demise. I can prove that, so can Jeff Peterson and all the people around him who’ve been subjected to NXIVM’s flying monkeys out of Clifton Park, Mexico and California and beyond. We are all linked to Slim. Film projects are one way they getcha.

      Clare & Sara were TARGETED and INDUCTED. Keith’s Madman Dad ran the Bronfman Seagrams account.

      They hit, sometimes fatally or with fatal results, people tangentially involved with Slim & Salinas whether there’s an apparent NX connection or not. KAR was a power-mongering psycho stooge. The Salzman’s were more directly involved than KAR in these drug cartel black ops. Nancy was one of the MLM “Dream Weavers.” This is how “low IQ” psychos wind up in office to be puppeteerd to begin with.

      Paul, you’re off Santa’s nice guy list. No one with half a brain on here, and yours seems to be well-intact, can’t see the bigger picture here.

    • ” He was nothing more than a conman, with an inner circle of co-conspirators and (mostly female) bag men. It was also Keith’s money laundering and smuggling scheme. ”

      In NXIVM, female empowerment meant females acted more like gangsters than Tony Soprano.

  • Who cares what someone has in the privacy of their home… The apt was rented under a fictitious name and the landlady didn’t ask for ID, do a background check, nothing?? AND the tenant met you at a Starbucks and gave you a year’s worth a rent in cash in a paper sack???!!! And for how many years?

    • Jacksoul,

      Stop being so objective, logical, and
      impartial!!!!

      You independent think for yourself types gives me convulsions.

    • 🤣. Gotta keep those underage sex-traffick grooming centers off the books.

      Lyin’ Lauren & Nancy sure kept their places spotless and what amount of Clare’s cash did they spend on renovations to impress their VIP guests?

      If Kathy was some kind of swinging sex addict (and so fucking what, it’s her cunt she can swing it wherever she wants ) why was the $500,000 in cash stashed under Nancy’s bed? Why is she so poor she had to do Nancy’s gardening, clean Lauren’s house, etc.

    • Paying a year’s rent in advance, and in cash, is pretty suspicious. A case of ask me no questions and I’ll tell you no lies, no doubt. I wonder if the landlady listed that (untraceable) income on her taxes? The whole Nxivm operation seems ripe for investigation by the IRS, with their highly irregular bookkeeping, cash stuffed in drawers and shoeboxes, and the rest of it. The government could seize their property until it’s all sorted out– which likely would be never. Seize that blue BMW of Allison Mack’s while they’re at it. And her Brooklyn condo.

      • “Paying a year’s rent in advance, and in cash, is pretty suspicious.”
        Unless someone travels a lot paying a year’s rent in advance is very unusual and a possible sign of money from illegal activity.
        Technically any payment over 10,000 dollars in cash is regarded as suspicious and must be reported to the government.
        Form 8300 and Reporting Cash Payments of Over 10000 | Internal …
        https://www.irs.gov/…self…/form-8300-and-reporting-cash-payments-of-over-10000
        Mar 26, 2019 – The general rule is that you must file Form 8300, Report of Cash Payments Over $10,000 Received in a Trade or Business, if your business receives more than $10,000 in cash from one buyer as a result of a single transaction or two or more related transactions.

        “Seize that blue BMW of Allison Mack’s while they’re at it. ”
        Both Allison and her Gal Pal Lauren had to drive BMWs.
        New BMWs start at about 40 to 50 K and go up from there.

        Allison.’s luxury digs at Saint George Tower in Brooklyn (111 Hicks Street) if rented cost about 3000 dollars per month.
        If owned her condo cost for a studio co-op is about 500K, if a one bedroom it is 700 K and if a two bedroom it is 990K
        https://streeteasy.com/building/st-george-tower

        Allison also owned a townhouse in Clifton Park worth about 150 K and rented another townhouse in Clifton Park.
        And she supposedly loaned Dr. Brandon Porter about 60 K to help him buy a home.Porter has recently filed for bankruptcy so that money is gone.

        For an actress who was only intermittently employed Allison was making lots of real estate deals.

      • Personally, I’d like to hear from their abortionist. They killed Gina with guilt on that count, too. Pam had over a dozen herself and, man, did she want that Avatar baby, if she could ever cure her disintegrations by adhering to KAR & Salzman’s fetal tissue collecting, DNA (or is it DNC?) doctrines.

      • Hmmm that BMW was said to be Allison’s by Sherlockshadow…Nothing proves it is. Same for the condo…she didn’t have a condo but an apartment with 2 other members (her wife and India). The condo (from the interview) was likely only for the “set up”.

        He (shadow) even pretended it was one of the darby’s sister (if I remember well the nick/name) who said that the BMW is Allison’s to which, she said, I never said that!

        And in the event it is, Why should they seize Allison specifically ? you are such an obsessed moron.

        • “Why should they seize Allison specifically ? you are such an obsessed moron.”

          Actaeon has said it is Allison’s BMW and one of the other Knox Woods’ residents said it is Allison’s car.
          In the future Allison can ride Public Transit like the good liberal she is.
          In Los Angeles and New York she will get in touch with some of the poor Mexican people who have had to flee the corruption and violence of Salinas’ Mexico.
