TVNewser – On Friday night’s Nightline, things got ugly in a report on Scientology. So ugly that the interviewee got up and walked off the set. The confrontation begins at the 3:40 mark in the video below, when Martin Bashir dares to ask Scientology Spokesman Tommy Davis about his (alleged) belief that Xenu imprisoned demon souls in volcanoes a quadrillion years ago that are now latched on to and ruining the lives of celebrities that don’t give the church a decent cut of their incomes. Sounds reasonable, no? Have a look.
Well, I’ll be! That was downright offensive of Martin! Notice that Tommy never said “no that’s all crazy talk and no one believes that we are possessed by demons unless we fork over money to the church and swallow Niacin,” he just gets offended that the question is even asked. That information is for church elders only!! You can’t just smoke one Marlboro and expect to find a sun visor with a cowboy on it in your mailbox, you have to smoke cartons and cartons and save up your Marlboro Miles for that shit! The prizes are only for the true addicts, Martin!
This wasn’t the fireworks show it could have been, considering that Bashier’s star making interview was the documentary “Living With Michael,” which finally opened the doors on Michael Jackson’s bizarro world for all of us to see, but it’s good to see Martin’s still out there stirring it up. Now off to swallow my Niacin.
Ronnie Karam has been with TVgasm since 2006 , which has given him the opportunity to make fun of hundreds of TV's most loved and hated reality whores. His plan in life was to be Julia Roberts but that plan was stolen by, well, Julia Roberts. He'll get you one day, JULIA ROBERTS!! When not making himself giggle for the gasm, Ronnie performs improv and sketch comedy at IO West in Hollywood a couple of times weekly while using the lovely California days to audition for commercial roles such as "ADORABLE MEXICAN UNCLE". Seriously. He would like to thank Jesus, Buddha and Xenu for the blessings they've bestowed. The writers here are the best around, and he's honored to be associated with them.
