‘Smallville’ Star Allison Mack Accused of Recruiting for NXIVM, Group Accused of Sex Trafficking and Branding Women

‘Smallville’ Star Allison Mack Accused of Recruiting for NXIVM, Group Accused of Sex Trafficking and Branding Women
Actress Allison Mack, known for her work on the superhero TV series “Smallville,” was arrested Friday and accused of recruiting women into a purported self-help organization, NXIVM, in which they were required to work and have sex with the group’s leader, Keith Raniere, prosecutors said.

U.S. attorney Richard P. Donoghue said in a statement Friday that Mack recruited women for Raniere, and that the women were “exploited, both sexually and for their labor.” He said Mack, who was arrested in Brooklyn, New York, is accused of “directly or implicitly” requiring women “to engage in sexual activity with Raniere. In exchange for this, Mack received financial and other benefits from Raniere.”

Raniere was arrested in Mexico in March. He traveled there after The New York Times published a report in October about the group branding women. Mack’s involvement with the group has long been a subject of speculation: She can be seen in a series of conversations posted to YouTube last year, smilingly interviewing Raniere about his teachings.

His charges in March involve sex trafficking and conspiring to force labor. According to Donoghue, Raniere, known within the group as “The Vanguard,” created “a secret society of women whom he had sex with and branded with his initials, coercing them with the threat of releasing their highly personal information and taking their assets.”

‘Grey’s Anatomy': Geena Davis Will Reprise Her Role As Dr Nicole Herman

‘Grey’s Anatomy': Geena Davis Will Reprise Her Role As Dr Nicole Herman
Oscar-winning actress Geena Davis will reprise her role as Dr. Nicole Herman in the penultimate episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 14, TheWrap has learned.

We last saw Dr. Herman in Season 11, and she and Dr. Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) had a strained but special mentor-mentee relationship. Knowing she had a brain tumor, Herman wanted to impart as much knowledge about pediatrics and fetal surgery to Arizona as she possibly could. She ended up getting brain surgery, but eventually went blind after complications.

According to the episode’s logline, Davis will return as Dr. Herman to present Arizona with an exciting opportunity — could this be how Arizona will be written off the show? It wouldn’t be the first time a character left Grey Sloan Memorial for another career opportunity — we’re looking at you, Cristina Yang.

It was announced in March that Capshaw and co-star Sarah Drew, who plays Dr. April Kepner, will not be returning to the medical drama after this season concludes.

Capshaw and Drew filmed their final scenes on Thursday, creator Shonda Rhimes said on Instagram.

“I need to devote a whole day just to celebrate Jessica and just to celebrate Sarah,” Rhimes said in her caption, promising she had “more to say” about the actress’ “magic.”

The penultimate episode airs on ABC on May 10. “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 14 will conclude on Thursday, May 17.

Superhero, Sci-Fi, and Pop Culture Newborn Photoshoots

If you have kids it’s time to admit it, you’ve thought about dressing them up as your favorite pop culture or sci-fi heroes when they were newborns. From the time they’re born until a certain age, say around 3 or 4, it’s possible to dress your kids up any way they like since they can’t really tell you that the ensemble you’re dressing them in is embarrassing or not at all cool. This could be a mom thing, but some dads get in on it too since having a newborn is kind of like having a doll that cries, poops,

Once Upon A Time Review: Rumplestiltskin Finds “The Guardian”

Once Upon A Time Season 7 has certainly had some stumbling blocks. It’s had some really strong episodes and a few stinkers as they head toward the series’ final episodes. However, I’ve maintained that when it continues to tell stories about its older characters like Regina, Zelena, Henry and Rumplestiltskin, the show still has emotional stakes and is overall compelling. “The Guardian” is a strong supporter of that theory. Sure, there was still a lot of the new characters with some good material and some “meh”, but at the heart of this week’s episode was an emotional story centered around the

Remember When Jeffrey Dean Morgan Was on Shameless?

So to be honest, no, you weren’t imagining things. Jeffrey Dean Morgan Was on the season four finale of Shameless. But his character was replaced by Dermot Mulroney when season five kicked off. There are some theories that Jdm wasn’t supposed to be anything but a placeholder until Mulroney came in but the word is that Jdm was supposed to be seen in that capacity but had scheduling conflicts that arose with other shows and had to be replaced. So it was that he became a guest star and was gone by the next season. Any fan of Jdm will

The Top Uses of T. Rex Songs in Movies or TV

You might not remember but at one point and time T. Rex, known original as Tyrannosaurus Rex, was almost on par with the Beatles as far as their popularity went.

Since their split however they’ve still been able to exert a great deal of influence over the musical industry and have been featured in movies and TV.
