Designer Rebecca Minkoff's involvement in a Scientology front is pretty perfectly bad timing - 2017-06-06
Yesterday, we had a pretty big scoop — a public statement from Leah Remini's stepmother, Donna Fiore, about being harassed by Scientology operatives to turn over dirt about her stepdaughter. But we also had a secondary story, and it turned out to kick up some dust as well.
We noted that the Fialkoffs — a Queens dentist and his daughter who work tirelessly to infiltrate New York City's schools with Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard's unscientific notions about drug abuse — had held their annual "Drug-Free Hero Awards" gala in Great Neck, New York, and that one of the people who appeared was longtime Scientologist and famous handbag designer Rebecca Minkoff.
After we posted Minkoff's photo from the gala, we could practically hear the collective gasp of many of our readers who had no idea that their favorite designer was a Scientologist.
