Nancy shattering suppression: “I believe that there is a power that I am striving for. I think the best way to describe that would be to name that ‘God,’ you know. And ideally I would have to say that I am striving to be that God.”

Cartwright is among those our Celebrity Centre source says is a “Bitter Ender,” someone who has completely bought in to the Hubbard way of thinking and won’t be defecting any time soon. She’s been perhaps the single busiest major Scientology celebrity in recent years, working hard to raise money for the “Ideal Org” project in the San Fernando Valley, for example, and finishing off her OT levels at a fairly rapid clip. She’s extremely dedicated.

Says our source: “She’s so hardcore, she even polices the other celebrities. She considers herself the ideal standard of a Scientology celebrity, and she lets the others know it if they aren’t measuring up to it.”
