Troublemakers: The women who won’t keep quiet about Scientology


We’re just back from what turned out to be an incredible day here in Adelaide. Not only was it a big day here at the Underground Bunker with our big Leah Remini scoop, but we also had an event to put on here in this South Australian capital, and it was great. Our thanks to Bryan Seymour and Nick Xenophon for helping us put on a fun show at “The Wheaty,” the funky entertainment space at the Wheatsheaf Hotel. And now, for the real capper to our day…

To help celebrate the publication of Leah Remini’s book, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, our own TheHoleDoesNotExist has secretly been working on a new song with several other Bunker denizens. If you enjoyed her last work — the official theme song of the Underground Bunker — we think you’ll enjoy her tribute to troublemaking women. Take it away, Moxie Magee!



And speaking of troublemaking women, Karen de la Carriere sent us her latest video, part four in her series about Heber Jentzsch. Give it a look!


OK, it’s the end of a long day here. And tomorrow, it’s on to Perth!



We didn’t get a chance to include photos in our book, so we’ve posted them at a dedicated page. Reader Sookie put together a complete index and we’re hosting it here on the website. Copies of the paperback version of ‘The Unbreakable Miss Lovely’ are on sale at Amazon. The Kindle edition is also available, and shipping instantly.
