Jenna Miscavige Hill Appearing Today on The View: Comment Here!

TheViewWe received our copy of Jenna Miscavige Hill’s new book at 3 am and we’re still devouring it. We hope to have our review up later today.

For now, the niece of Scientology leader David Miscavige is scheduled to make an appearance on The View today on ABC at 11 am Eastern. We’d like to hear your thoughts on the questions she’s asked and how she responds.

Tune in and sound off!

LIVE BLOG STARTS HERE.

10:50 am

Ten minutes to go. We really wonder how this will go — Jenna seems a perfect guest for The View, but can the hosts handle such a touchy subject?

How did I go through life without watching this show? Our hosts impart their wisdom about teeth, virginity, and what not.

Yikes. That Seth McFarlane promo for the Oscars was not funny. Doesn’t bode well. OK, back to the show.

Six in 1990, went to live on ranch. How often saw her parents? Saw them for a few hours on Sunday morning only.

From when I was 12 to 18 I only saw my mom twice.

Those church statements are so weak. Too afraid to face an audience or camera.

The Behar joke wasn’t inappropriate. And in general, these three really took Jenna seriously. I think Jenna got a great hearing here.

She could be a better speaker on this material, but that’s a tough situation to be in.
