What happened? Hollywood veteran manager and producer Jeff Wald sent his two youngest daughters to New Village. I spoke to him yesterday. Wald had a lot of praise for Will and Jada, and for Piano Foster (real name Franca Piano Foster). He told me that despite the reports from "bloggers," there was never talk of Scientology at the school.

But, he said, "We could never get past the association. We couldn't raise any money. And the Smiths were putting in $2 million of their own each year. They couldn't keep supporting it."
