Ex-Scientologist Is Broke, “Auditioned” To Be Tom Cruise’s Girlfriend

More “going clear,” for all you Xenu buffs!

In 2012, Vanity Fair published what was then a scandalous expose on Scientology, confirming rumors that Tom Cruise auditioned women within Scientology to be his girlfriend. The Cruise/Scientology girlfriend auditions of 2004 and 2005 have been continually confirmed by multiple ex Scientologists including Leah Remini, Paul Haggis and others who had the misfortune of going through these “auditions.” And now, another former Scientologist is speaking out: voiceover actress and comedian Cathy Schenkelberg. And I guess more than speaking out, the woman is doing a one-woman show about her time in Scientology, which includes a failed screen test to be Cruise’s girlfriend. Schenkelberg told her story to the Daily Mail and it’s pretty freaking disturbing:

Schenkelberg, who left the church in 2009, now explains in a Daily Mail Online exclusive interview: ‘I was called into an audition for a video run by Golden Era Productions [Scientology media department].

‘I was on a really high level, I was a successful Scientologist, I was one of America’s top voiceovers. I remember there was a load of us in the lobby of the Celebrity Centre.

‘I didn’t know I was being auditioned [to be Cruise’s girlfriend], so I was being asked on camera: ”Where are you from? What level are you on? Then, “What do you think of Tom Cruise?”

‘I thought I was auditioning for a training course, so when he asked about Tom Cruise, I said: “I can’t stand him, I think he’s a narcissistic baby!” I said, “I’m really bummed about him splitting with Nicole”. I hate the guy, even before I was in Scientology I didn’t like him.

‘I then go on a litany about him and I remember saying at the end: “Do I have a script now? What do I need to do?” And they said: “No, you’re finished.” I was like, “Huh, I thought this was a training video.”

‘When I left the room, there was another actress outside and she asked: “How did you do?” I said: “What do you mean?” She said: “Well, that’s an audition to be Tom Cruise’s girlfriend”, and I said: “I don’t think I got the gig.”‘

Schenkelberg was made to pay for her anti-Cruise comments through hours of intensive auditing, as they would ‘security check’ her to investigate why she had any form of hatred for the Mission Impossible star.She recalls: ‘I would have to get audited on this, they’d want to know why I didn’t like Tom Cruise. I would get into so much trouble over this.

But after the audition things changed.

‘I’d get invited because of my daughter to say, Nancy Cartwright or Leah Rimini’s party then they’d say: “Sorry, you can’t go because Tom doesn’t know you.” If I was in the party, I’d get uninvited, I was in the B Group.’

Schenkelberg did many courses and levels, called Operating Thetan Levels, the highest being Operating Thetan 8 (OT8). But it was also financially draining, the courses were taking all of her money. In 14 years, she spent $938,000…

‘I lost three homes, a pension and medical and dental insurance. I was on food stamps and was kicked out of my rental house as I was in arrears of over $20,000,’ adds Schenkelberg.

Schenkelberg, who lives back in Chicago now, says that the Church even tried to recruit her daughter, then only nine years old, into the ultra-hardcore Sea Org, where members sign billion-year contracts.

Yikes. All she did was say she didn’t like Cruise and her life was rocked. Honestly, her big mouth saved her a lot of grief, and probably a lot of money in the long run, if you can believe it.

Which reminds me. Cruise is single. Will there be another audition process?!

Tom Cruise Hasn’t Seen Suri In 3 Years

Tom Takes Suri To Chelsea Piers

Tom Cruise is basically a weirdo workaholic recluse these days, spending his time getting closer and closer to his favorite science fiction religion.

All the tabloids are obsessed with pointing out that Tom has not seen his daughter in a long, long time- be it because of work, Scientology, Katie Holmes, or whatever.  According to In Touch Weekly, it’s been 1000 days (or thereabouts) since Tom has even seen Suri Cruise in person. YIKES. Page Six’s sources say the same thing, and they also say that Tom doesn’t want to see Suri because she’s a “nonbeliever” according to the Church of Scientology. DOUBLE YIKES.

Tom Cruise hasn’t seen his daughter Suri, 10, in nearly three years because the Church of Scientology forbids its members from associating with nonbelievers, sources say. Since his ex-wife Katie Holmes is not a Scientologist, and neither is Suri, Cruise has reportedly not seen his daughter since she was 7.

“If he wanted to see her, he could see her,” one source said. “Even people in prison have a right to see their children.”

Holmes spokeswoman Leslie Sloane had no comment, and Cruise’s publicists didn’t get back to me. Suri, who lives and goes to school in Manhattan, is said to be a smart, well-behaved girl.

“She’s thriving. She’s got lots of friends and a nice, normal life. This is his loss, his issue, his problem,” said my source. “He must be really brain-washed.”

In Touch first reported it’s been 1,000 days since Cruise saw his daughter, even though Cruise sued the magazine’s parent company, Bauer Publishing, in 2012 for reporting that Cruise had “abandoned” Suri. The $50 million defamation suit was settled the following year on undisclosed terms with each side paying its own legal fees. Tony Ortega, who writes about Scientology on his Web site,, told me Holmes qualifies as an SP, suppressive person, by the cult-like group, and Suri would be deemed a PTS, potential trouble source.

“But the thing about Scientology is, celebrities get to break all the rules,” says Ortega. “That’s why I find this so mysterious.”

I believe that if Tom wanted to spend time with Suri, Katie Holmes would probably allow that. I dunno. Katie has never seemed malicious about custody or access to their daughter, but it feels like a lot of info about Tom not making seeing his kid a priority. Not sure why, and I’m not sure how long it’s actually been, but I feel like all these reports are coming from somewhere.

But maybe he comes out of his Scientology cave to facetime Suri on her birthday? Who knows.

Tom Cruise Sold His 40 Million Dollar Home And Is Moving Out Of LA

Tom Cruise approves of his daughter Isabella's husband Max Parker

Tom Cruise is moving to a different coast…

The Mission Impossible star’s Los Angeles compound is currently in escrow after selling for $40 million, and the actor is hitting the ROAD. But don’t stress about Tom not making a return on his investment- he bought the property (that he shared with Katie Holmes during their six-year marriage) in 2007 for $30.5 million.

“Tom has long planned to leave L.A.,” says a source. “He doesn’t need to be there for work – he’s off doing movies all around the world. It’s not the center of his life anymore.”

So where’s he headed?! Find out, after the jump!

Tom Cruise is trying to woo Sofia Boutella now

Tom Cruise is trying to woo Sofia Boutella now

After splitting from Katie Holmes back in 2012, it appears that Tom Cruise has now turned his attention to Sofia Boutella. I hope there’s couch jumping!

One source says that Tom has fixated on Sofia and can’t get her out of his head. The spy said, “He’s on a feverish march for his next wife, and he can’t get Sofia out of his mind.”

It has been rumored in the past that Tom was using the Church of Scientology in order to find his next wife, so maybe he’s connected with Sofia using the CoS?

Another source said that while Tom watched “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” he “flipped out when he saw her. He kept saying, ‘Who’s that girl? Get me that girl!’”

It isn’t shocking to think that Tom would think that all he has to do is point and demand a woman to be brought to him by his lackeys. I’ll believe it more when a video surfaces of him declaring his love for her on Oprah.

What do you think?
