Tara and Nathan - subjects of last night's 'Leah Remini' - respond to Scientology's smears - 2017-10-11
In last night's show, Leah spoke with Nathan Rich and Tara Reile, who had spent some of their childhoods at Scientology's notorious "Mace-Kingsley" ranches in California and New Mexico. Longtime Scientology Watchers were already aware of the horror stories that have come out of the reform-school ranches, which were designed to take troubled children off the hands of their Scientology parents. In last night's episode, Nathan and Tara described the ranch as a labor camp, with extreme punishments and mind games played on children who had been abandoned by their families.
We interviewed Tara before the show aired, and she predicted that Scientology would talk with her family members and put together videos of them trashing her. And they did. Both Nathan and Tara got the usual Scientology treatment, with a page smearing them for speaking out.
