John Travolta’s fun night at the Oscars



ASHOFlierTie a yellow ribbon

Ah, the plans of mice and David Miscavige. After more than a year of renovations, and just weeks after he pulled off a series of huge events in Florida, his plans for grand re-openings in Los Angeles have gone sideways.

As the flier at right indicates, yesterday (ASHO & AOLA) and today (Hollywood Test Center) were supposed to have big celebrations (after they were moved for bad weather). But yesterday’s event was put off until March 8 (for now). And as we reported earlier, invitees were told today’s Test Center event was put off because the building still lacks a Certificate of Occupancy. Bummer.

One of our tipsters sent in a rather forlorn looking photo of the situation at Big Blue, where part of a giant ribbon is in place for the celebration that’s been postponed…


Our friend Tory Christman took her own video yesterday showing the place half set-up for a party. What a disappointment!

Some local folks have pointed out to us that there are still street closure signs up for tonight’s event near the Hollywood Test Center on Hollywood Boulevard. We hope someone can go by to see if something does happen there tonight despite what we’ve been told.

Hey, Dave. What’s up with the half-assed celebrations? It’s almost like the place is falling apart.


We’re rooting for Dannette

San Antonio attorney Ray Jeffrey has been on a roll. He represented Debbie Cook when she was sued by the Church of Scientology and it’s our belief that the church ended up paying her to end the lawsuit it brought against her. Jeffrey then represented Paul Marrick and Greg Arnold, the two Scientology super-spies who followed one man for 24 years and then sued the church when it suddenly ended their jobs. That too ended up in a settlement — but not before some amazing and embarrassing information about the church was made public. And now, Ray Jeffrey is representing Monique Rathbun in the most bruising court battle we’ve seen in a long time. And while Jeffrey has held up under the pressure, we know that he’s been rocked by some personal difficulties.

His law partner, Dannette Mitchell, is fighting breast cancer, and she’s raising money for the next phase in that battle. There are more details at a web site that describes her ordeal. We thought you’d want to know about it.
