Alanna shattering suppression: When Alanna’s father, Joe Reaiche, left Scientology in 2005, she shattered his suppression by disconnecting from him.

Says our Celebrity Centre source: “The Masterson family is very tight. Alanna’s mother Carol is the matriarch of the family. When Joe Reiache left Scientology, Carol held onto Alanna and Jordan, the two children she had with him. (Danny and Chris Masterson were from her previous marriage.) Joe was declared a ‘suppressive person,’ but Carol stayed in. Alanna grew up under the shadow of her famous half brothers Danny and Chris. All of them were brought up with L Ron Hubbard study tech. Carol’s control of her four children cannot be over emphasized. Alanna is still emotionally a child and will do what is good for her church and what her mother demands. Very sad.”
