The Clams Got to JT

Source: Socialite Life

He was so close. I knew it. I could feel it. JT was this close to busting out of that crazy hellhole known as the Church of Scientology. So close maybe that his imminent departure was put on high alert and the CO$ officials had to step up and reign him in.

Case in point: JT's most recent interview with Parade magazine. Never mind that the interview was conducted at 2 a.m. What actually escaped from his mouth is shocking and disturbing. JT claims that in order to stay under the pappie radar, he and his family sleep during the day and stay up all night. Let's have a collective "WTF?", shall we? To quote Mr. Travolta: "My kids probably stay up too late. My wife goes to bed around 3, and I follow around 7. We’re like the Addams family or the Munsters, living sort of an odd nocturnal life. But it works.”

Many, many questions. Obviously his kids are home schooled, a la the Scientology method, that goes without saying. But how does such an arrangement work for your marriage? His wife goes to bed around 3, and he follows 4 hours later? What does he do during those 4 hours? Doesn't exactly mesh with his TMI statements of a month or so ago that he and Kelly were going to start trying for Baby Number Three this summer, does it?

JT also revealed that he's been attending auditing sessions 5 nights a week (boy, JT was really in trouble with the Hubbardites, wasn't he?) and flies his plane from his home to the Clearwater Scientology Center. He also waxes poetic on Scientology, saying "It’s a one-on-one program that’s designed to help you handle your life. I’m proud of my religion.”

Once again, a collective "WTF?" Has JT ever spoken so much warm fuzzies about Scientology? Has he ever spoken this much publicly about Scientology?

Moving on to "Hairspray", and the fact that he was in drag for his part, JT states that “Guys from the crew were hitting on me. I have to make a living. I have to work, but it has to be fun.” I really have no comment for this. Was he trying to be funny? Knowing the gay rumors that have pursued him for years, the "kissing on the plane" picture, the fact that he spent all last summer in a dress, and the CO$ stance on homosexuality and transgenders, I just can't believe this is funny. It's disturbing and well, it can't be true. I like JT and all, but who on earth is going to hit on him in a dress? Are people in Canada that desperate?

And finally, he speaks about his daughter. Ella. The only child that he will really acknowledge. According to him “My daughter is breathtakingly beautiful and very talented. I’d like to introduce her to the world. I will give her as much guidance as I can. Not bad to think I’m like Henry Fonda and she’s Jane Fonda. Let it be the heritage, the family business.”

Whhhhaaaaaatttt?? First, no slams on Henry Fonda. Secondly, just reading this quote, I can almost see the blank, dazed expression that surely must have been on his face while spouting off this surely-Scientology-approved spiel. Whatever happened to the very P.C. comment of hoping your child didn't chose the business, but vowing to support them if they did? This child is 8!

I'll bet the Mini-Messiah is hopping mad - - JT dared to suggest that Ella is breathtakingly beautiful. Much more descriptive than the magnificent Suri.
