I saw a program a few years ago about Scientology, but it was showing the non-celeb side, just plain folks who had been in it and what they experienced and it wasn't anything like what/how you hear some of the celeb scientologists rave about it. I have a feeling all their celeb status, power and money gets them the hearts and flowers serenity version/treatment.
