Unraveling Natalie’s Narrative: Revenge

In this guest view, Janet Munro explores Toni Natalie’s relationships with Keith Raniere and journalist Frank Parlato.

By Janet Munro

Toni Natalie attempted to make herself the ultimate victim of Keith Raniere by writing a book about how bad her life was with him, as she followed him through three criminal organizations as one of his girlfriends and helped him hide his illegal assets.

The Program

Natalie got out of the frying pan but stayed in the fire, playing revenge games with Raniere that most people don’t know about.

Imagine two male deer (narcissists) locking horns over decades, waiting to see which one will win. This was Natalie and Raniere’s dance.

Keith Raniere and Toni Natalie worked together in three companies.

In her book, Natalie turned it all around and blamed Raniere some 20 years later. Her book came out after he was convicted.

Being female, Toni got to play the victim card.

Toni Natalie

She played the same pattern with Frank Parlato. But Frank didn’t lock horns with her. He didn’t try to destroy her.

As long as Frank gave Natalie what she wanted – exposing Raniere’s actions that would lead him to prison – Natalie was happy.

The same thing happened with Raniere. Natalie and Raniere were happy together in business and in a sexual relationship, as long as they both got what they wanted.

To make her seem like an even bigger victim, Toni Natalie wrote that her brother, John Natalie, committed suicide because of Keith Raniere – which is pure fiction…

When Frank, as a reporter, exposed Natalie’s role in the Consumers’ Buyline fraud and the factual lies (he took the time to research) in her book, Toni stopped being happy with Frank.

Raniere was already found guilty when her book was published. At first, Frank actually promoted her book. Then, Frank caught Natalie in her web of lies. He was affecting sales in a negative direction.

Here is an example:

Toni Natalie claimed Keith Raniere tried to stop her from filing bankruptcy. She further claimed that she was a victim of his litigation terrorism for eight years.

Raniere claimed Natalie lied to the bankruptcy court in 1998 when she said she could not pay her creditors, including him, because she had no assets. Raniere claimed she actually owned more than $100,000 worth of original Ramon Santiago paintings.

Natalie told the court that she sold her Santiago paintings for $10,000 and no longer had them.  Raniere believed she was deceiving the court and still had the valuable paintings.

Frank Parlato uncovered photographs of Natalie and photos of her house that were taken in 2018 – years after her bankruptcy case was over.  In the background were Ramon Santiago paintings that Natalie swore under oath she had sold in 1998.

Toni’s house had Ramon Santiago paintings in every room – a decade after she told the bankruptcy court she had sold them.

Toni wrote in her book that she was a long-suffering single mother who fought for her son against the tyrant Raniere. Frank Parlato pointed out that she gave up her son to stay with Raniere.

Toni Natalie wrote in her book that she fought against great odds all her life. To show how little formal education she had, she said she had to drop out of high school in the 10th grade. Unfortunately for her, Frank found her senior picture yearbook showing she did not drop out of the 10 grade. She was still in school in the 12th grade.

Again and again, the lies were being exposed, provable lies, and naturally Toni’s book sales took a dump.

Now all of a sudden, Frank became, in Natalie’s opinion, a criminal worthy of a prison sentence – and she started a campaign to portray Frank as an evil monster to the FBI and the judge overseeing his case.

Natalie presented lies to the judge that had nothing to do with Frank’s case. She even showed up at Frank’s sentencing, hoping to speak.

Toni Natalie tried to speak at Frank Parlato’s sentencing.

But because she was not really a victim, she was not allowed to talk at his sentencing.

Natalie had said on social media that she couldn’t wait to post Frank’s prison number. But she never got to do this because Frank was not sentenced to prison.

What kind of person does this to the person who did so much to help take down NXIVM?

Could it be an angry, scorned woman?

All Frank did was report the truth regarding the lies and misrepresentations she made to embellish her book. She got caught, like Raniere.

Now she seeks revenge, just like Raniere.

It looks like her Master taught her well.

    • The quick answer is no.

      When I came to court, Toni was already there. Sitting upright in her best simian posture on a bench outside the courtroom in the corridor, she looked eager for carnage.

      When I looked directly at her, she turned away. As I passed by, she was less than two feet away for she was literally beside the door. I said hello – in a formal way. She made a low short grunt similar to those of her species and looked down.

      When the sentencing was over, and her disappointment intense, she must have exited the courtroom rapidly for when I turned around to greet my friends, Toni was not among them.

    • Pretty sure that was you answering your own question. Bangcock wouldn’t hide as an anon. He/she only hides when mommy says it’s time to clean his/her bedroom.
      BTW – where’d that little dipshit go? Summer came and is quickly leaving…
      IF the little dipshit had actually answered, I think he’d have flipped Ramtha and Toni. He/she clearly has some tension with Toni, but marriage…? And he/she never gave Nancy her due respect for birthing that little hottie. At least you give Nancy respect for birthing that other (Tracy Chapman loving) hottie.

  • I’m so disappointed in Toni. I really thought she was another woman to be admired in the NXIVM story. It’s also hard to fathom why someone would put bold -aced lies out there about something that could be easily debunked. SMH. I hope maybe this incident will stop her from this behavior and just find some peace in her life. But apologies definitely should be made.

    Toni Natalie’s Triad of Self-Diagnoses Might be Wrong
    November 19, 2019

    [ … ]
    [ … ]
    [ … ]

    Help Is on the Way
    It is hoped that whatever diseases Toni actually has, can be somehow cured.

    The first step is in getting a competent diagnosis.

    According to Medical News Today, while pathological liars tell compulsive lies without a clear motive, non-pathological lying is where the lie is often beneficial to the liar in some way.

    It is clear that Toni is a non-pathological liar.

    In addition to being a liar, Toni may have “Factitious Disorder” – sometimes called Munchausen’s Syndrome – a condition in which a person acts as though they are physically or mentally ill when they are not.

    She may also have Narcissistic Personality Disorder [NPD]. The hallmarks of NPD are fantasies of immense importance and the need for admiration and special treatment.

    She might also have Borderline Personality Disorder [BPD] and may lie to distort reality into something that fits with the emotions that she is feeling, rather than the facts concerning the events of her life.

    Yet another possibility is Frontotemporal Dementia, a form of dementia that affects the frontal and temporal brain regions and causes changes in behavior and language, inappropriate social behavior, lack of empathy and loss of insight into the behavior of others and oneself.

    These personality disorders can lead to significant challenges with interpersonal relationships and in writing books that are supposed to be non-fiction.

    If you know Toni, urge her to get a revised medical diagnosis to ascertain what’s really wrong with her.


  • Toni is hot. She should dump Chet and let me love her body down.

  • Remember when she wore that hideous black and white outfit to her ex-boyfriend’s sentencing?

  • It’s unfortunate that Toni Natalie’s credibility took a nosedive due to inconsistencies in her claims. If Frank Parlato was polite, he would have overlooked these variations between fact and story telling.

    • It’s not Frank’s job to overlook bold face lies.

      Toni was telling about the fall of NXIVM. That’s what people were buying
      She made herself out to be the ultimate victim in her book by tell a pack of lie.

      Frank exposed the truth when people contacted him about her boldface lies about them.

      Why was telling the truth such a bad thing in Toni’s story?

      Because people would see the REAL TONI, MAYBE???

  • Me in the dark clenching my teeth
    Eyes dismayed
    Hair a mess
    Who will I deceive next? My Reddit fools? Another Cheaten Harding?

  • She tried to speak? According to her book, she would lack the intelligence to speak. That’s why she lies and had someone else write it.

  • Her face isn’t even real. I looked at all her pictures through time. It seems she has zero care for growing old organically.

  • If Toni was going to be so butt hurt about Frank exposing her lies, maybe she shouldn’t have tried to deceive people from her made up sob stories. For someone so apparently hellbent on “accountability” for Raniere, she sure has some similarities – and expects everyone to praise her for her BS.

  • I hope Toni finds a new hobby now that her role as “Keith Raniere’s ex-girlfriend” has lost public interest. It’s honestly sad that she clings to anything for attention and relevance. After Raniere tried to put her in prison and Frank refused to help him, for her to try to stab Frank in the back and do the same thing to him is just low. Hopefully, she’ll move on now.

    • She can’t give up that role just yet. She is suing Clare & Sara Bronfman in “The Civil Lawsuit” saying she’s been damaged by Keith Raniere filing lawsuits against her too many times.

      Such BS…Toni Natalie’s revenge games and hiding his assets when she was Raniere’s lover is what caused those law suits.

      If the Bronfman sisters’ legal team calls the correct witnesses to the stands (if this case ever went to trial), Natalie will never get a dime of the Bronfman sisters’ money.

      Natalie wasn’t a victim in these lawsuits

  • Most people who are achieving success graduate the 12th grade. She’s a freak to right such frivolous lies. It makes zero sense…ZERO.

    • So true. Who tf lies about doing ok at school? I’ll never understand this kind of envy ” Oh you left school/home at 15 and had to struggle and scratch your way to decent level of security? You were delinquent? Drugs? Alcohol? – How authentic, how Cool!!!!” Say the poor creatures – totally deprived of scintillating hard knocks.


  • She sits a proud victim yet victorious in front of those paintings. Did she ever give her son back the one that was given to him?

  • Her poor son,
    She leaves him for Keith Raniere

    It’s good he had a loving father to raise him and look after him.

    Hiw does a kid ever forgive a mother like that.

  • If she’s lying about the death of her own brother she’ll say anything.
    No soul. No credibility. Hope the article serves to warn anyone she seeks to engage in her web of lies.

  • Toni’s (Chet’s) book was a failure. She is butthurt because Sarah got all the attention when Squarefoot/NXIVM fell.

    Now she is enraged at Parlato because he did what Investigative Journalists do: Investigative Journalism.

    She is a Professional victim.

    Toni, its time to move on. The interview requests have dried up, the book sales have flopped. maybe its time to try to do something productive and stop trying to damage the lives of others. You have time to atone.
