Celeb Centre 2016 "Christmas Stories XXIV" - same old faces

Post by Don Carlo » Sun Nov 24, 2013 6:22 pm

The actors get older and/or more trapped at Celebrity Centre's Christmas Stories annual fundraiser, and the young people are mostly second-generation-Scientologists. These are the names that came up in the media. I never attended or saw a brochure (except for 2013) listing celebs; anyone who did, please add to the below list.
Other actors/singers undoubtedly performed but were not newsworthy, or their stories vanished. Danny Masterson brought his castmates from That 70's Show in the mid-2000's, but prize catches like Ashton Kucher smiled and never joined CoS.

Below are performers, and famous attendees at Christmas Stories fundraisers to benefit LA Police, at Celeb Centre Int'l. All who are Scientologists are also listed, with brief description and their entangled relationships, at 2013 Scientology Celebrity Spiderweb, viewtopic.php?f=9&t=156867&p=558177 . Use your "find" button and type out their last name.

2016:
Jennifer Aspen, Jaime Aymerich, Lynsey Bartilson, Nancy Cartwright, Erika Christensen, Jason Dohring, Denice Duff, Michael Duff, Paris Duff, Jenna Elfman, European pop star Kuba Ka, Jim Meskimen, Marisol Nichols, Noelle North, actor David O'Donnell, Michael Pena, Billy Sheehan, Michelle Stafford, Joy Villa. See photos on page 3 of this thread.

2015:

Marisol Nichols
Mark O’Brien (husband of Georgina Reilly)

Stacy Francis
Denice Duff

plus: Freya Tingley, David O'Donnell, Nathan Lorch, and Jim Meskimen's wife Tamra Meskimen. Other photos for 2015 are on page 2 of this thread. At least ten* are second generation Scientologists. Jennifer Aspen says NOTHING on the Internet about her parents - was there a disconnection ?

*1. Denice Duff is daughter of OT V Phyllis Burker.
2. Jason Dohring is son of OT VII Doug and Laurie Dohring, who are wealthy from Neopets and Digital Lightwave.
3. Freya Tingley, born 1994 in Australia, is daughter of OT VIII Chris Tingley.
4. David O'Donnell is son of father Kevin O'Donnell, Scientologist founder of Earthlink.
5. Bodhi Elfman is son of musician and OT I Richard Elfman
6. Nathan Lorch is son of Scientologists Dan Lorch & Charla Grossman. Nathan's father-in-law is Craig Ferreira
7. Erica Christensen is daughter of Scientologists Steven and Kathy Christensen
8. Juliet Simms is daughter of Jeff and Natalie Simms, big IAS and Super Power fund-raisers.
9. Alyssa Suede is daughter of Raven Kane and step-daughter of David Campbell
10. Danny Masterson is son of manager Carol Masterson

2014: Jim Meskimen, Erika Christensen, Jason Dohring (photos are blurry; looking for better photos or reports)

2013: Advertised: Danny, Alanna, and Jordan Masterson, Jenna and Bodhi Elfman, Jason Dohring, Holly Palmer, Jennifer Aspen, Marisol Nichols, Jim Meskimen, Laura Prepon, David Campbell, Raven Kane Campbell, Erika Christensen, Patrick Renna, Lynsey Bartilson, and Alyssa Suede Campbell. http://tonyortega.org/2013/11/24/jenna- ... more-11824

2012: John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Kirstie Alley, Erika Christensen, Jim Meskimen, Jason Dohring, Jennifer Aspen, Marisol Nichols, film composer Mark Isham, Juliette Lewis and Tait Rupert. The only photo I could find was of Juliette Lewis and Tait Rupert.

2011: Puzzling absence of stars, though the event was advertised early in Dec. 2011. Only talented voice actor Jim Meskimen, who appears to be a key frequent player in these shows, was named as performing. The Valeska Paris scandal may have spooked the usual performers. See Celeb Centre Christmas Stories 2011 lacks celebrities, viewtopic.php?f=11&t=47277

2010: Anne Archer, Jennifer Aspen, Eric Balfour, Erika Christensen, Jason Dohring, Jenna Elfman, Juliette Lewis, Marisol Nichols and Ethan Suplee

2009: Anne Archer, Erika Christensen, Jason Dohring, Jenna Elfman, MC Lyte, Priscilla Presley, Beth Riesgraf, film composer Mark Isham, Edgar Winter, and Judy Norton

2008: Kirstie Alley, Anne Archer, Jenna Elfman, Ethan Suplee, Laura Prepon, Erika Christensen, Michelle Stafford, Jason Lee, Michael Pena, Bodhi Elfman, Eddie Steeples, Taron Lexton, Efren Ramirez, Joanna Garcia, Kyle Howard, Lauren Conrad, Marisol Nichols, Sofia Milos, Eric Matheny, and the late David Carradine.

2007: Kelly Preston, Jenna Elfman, Efren Ramirez, Chris Masterson, Laura Prepon, Elisabeth Moss, Kyle Howard, Jordan Masterson, Ella Bleu Travolta, and the late David Carradine.

2006: Kirstie Alley, Giovanni Ribbisi, Kelly Preston, Ericka Christensen, Lynsey Bartilson, Carlo Rota, Catherine Bell, Chris Lowell, Christopher Masterson, Danny Masterson, Eric Balfour, Jason Lee, Jennifer Aspen, Marisol Nichols, Ryan Hansen, Noelle North, and Tait Rupert. Mary Lynn Rajskub was there, but is not in CoS.

2005: Laura Prepon, Marisol Nichols, Bijou Phillips, Danny Masterson, Kelly Preston, Chris Masterson, Judy Norton, Jim Meskimen, David O'Donnell, Beth Riesgraf. Not CoS, but dragged in by Danny Masterson: Mila Kunis

2004: Danny Masterson, Denice Duff, Bodhi Elfman, Sofia Milos, Judy Norton Elena Roggero. Not CoS, but dragged in by Danny Masterson: Ashton Kutcher and Wilmer Valderrama

2003: Danny Masterson, Laura Prepon, Judy Norton, Jordan Masterson. Not CoS, but dragged in by Danny Masterson: Ashton Kutcher, Wilmer Valderrama and Mila Kunis

2002: Danny Masterson, Judy Norton, and Elena Roggero. Not CoS, but dragged in by Danny Masterson: Wilmer Valderrama and Mila Kunis

2001: Jenna Elfman, Jennifer Aspen, Kate Ceberano, Catherine Bell, Jason Dohring, and David O'Donnell

2000: Jim Meskimen, Sofia Milos, Marisol Nichols, and David O'Donnell

Footnotes and photos for earlier years are at Celeb Centre Christmas Stories 2011 lacks celebrities viewtopic.php?f=11&t=47277 and Christmas Stories XX, 2012 fundraiser, pulls in Travolta, viewtopic.php?f=11&t=141226 . Since then some links have broken, so footnotes are incomplete.

Christmas Stories 2000 - 2013: celebs older and more trapped

Post by I'mglib » Mon Nov 25, 2013 5:12 am

Wow, another great post. Really good research, DC.

I wonder who organizes these things? I wonder if the actors actually enjoy doing this, or if it's a chore?

Christmas Stories 2000 - 2013: celebs older and more trapped

Post by Don Carlo » Mon Nov 25, 2013 4:14 pm

Some are pulled in by a popular leader-type, like Danny Masterson and Jenna Elfman, who might get Scientologists work in their TV and film projects. Jim Meskimen also influences his voice-acting students.

Of the 2013 advertised performers, Jason Dohring has a rich Scientologist Daddy; other second-generation Scientologists include Danny, Alanna, and Jordan Masterson, Bodhi Elfman, Jennifer Aspen, Erika Christensen, Patrick Renna, Lynsey Bartilson, and Alyssa Suede Campbell.

Others have loyalties to a Scientologist spouse and to their shared offspring: Jenna Elfman (has two children with Bodhi), Marisol Nichols (has one child with Taron Lexton, who works for CoS and is the son of Mary Shuttleworth), Jim Meskimen (has one grown daughter with Tamra) and the couple David Campbell and second wife Raven Kane Campbell. David Campbell has a quiet Scientologist son, Beck, who married and has children with Marissa Ribisi, sister of celeb CoS member Giovanni Ribisi.

Alyssa Suede Campbell, daughter of Raven Kane Campbell, seems to have disconnected from her biological father, whom she never names on all her on-line bios and interviews. Alyssa implies her father is David Campbell, and her brother is Beck; They are step-relatives. Alyssa's Calif. birth record says she is Alyssa Suede Weller (from ancestry.com; father's first name not given). There is a Roger Weller who had Scientology completions right up until Alyssa's mother changed her name and started having completions as Raven Kane Campbell. Despite many articles on the David Campbell - Bibbe Hansen - Raven Kane family and its star, Beck, there is no mention of Raven's previous man, Roger Weller. The man seems to have ceased to exist in Alyssa's life. Roger Weller on Facebook wistfully names as his favorite music, that of Alyssa Suede. http://www.facebook.com/roger.weller3 .
Alyssa Suede is her usual stage name:
Image
Alyssa Suede is in a 2014 movie, Soaked in Bleach.

Jordan and Alanna Masterson are officially disconnected from their father Joe Reaiche, who has spoken in sorrow about this, https://whyweprotest.net/community/thre ... les.55675/
Alanna was dating Connor Cruise the summer of 2013, http://tonyortega.org/2013/07/07/alanna ... r-to-date/ . Alanna plays Tara on The Walking Dead. Jordan is dating actress (non-Scientologist) Dakota Johnson, and he plays Ryan in TV series Last Man Standing.

Danny, Jordan, and Alanna Masterson are probably disconnected from blood relatives of their mother Carol Anne Nicholson Masterson. They NEVER mentions her maiden name, or anything about Carol's family of origin, in their bios. I only found "Nicolson" from her marriage to Joe Reaiche in Florida.

Accomplished singer-songwriter Holly Palmer has Scientologist completions, and performs at CoS events, but I haven't found links to other Scientologists by birth or marriage. Anyone knowing her relatives, please speak up.

Laura Prepon was in, then disappeared from events, and has appeared recently at events. She co-starred with Danny Masterson on That 70's Show and once dated his brother Chris. So I don't know her motivations.

The Christmas Stories XXI fund-raiser for the LAPD should be open to anyone not on a CoS blacklist, so consider donating a little for a chance to ask the performers some questions:

Danny Masterson: You said you have Irish heritage. Tell us about your grandfathers.

Alanna and Jordan "Masterson:" If you talk to your Dad Joe Reaiche, will Danny disconnect from you? (If they seem willing, show them Joe Reaiche's Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/joe.reaiche and suggest they friend him. If still amiable, ask them about their mother's parents.
Alyssa Suede "Campbell:" Do you know your father Roger Weller's Facebook page says you are his favorite musician? (Show her the Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/roger.weller3 - ask her to friend him!)

Raven Kane Campbell: Did you encourage your daughter Alyssa to disconnect from her biological father?

Are these people really movie stars? The only person I heard of is Jenna Elfman, the other individuals are unfamiliar to me.

All of them have pages at http://www.Imdb.com . They've done SOMETHING for film or TV. Celebrity Centre fawns over them and tells them they need Scientology, and fellow Hollywood-Scientologists, to succeed. CoS then uses their success to lure wanna-be actors into Scientology.

How disappointing: actress Catherine Bell brings her young child in 2013 into this Scientology environment.

Good catch, DC. Looking at the photos from 2013, all I can think of is "Wake up already!!!"
