Yesterday, we exclusively talked with Shayne Lamas about how the Church of Scientology tried to lure her in. As our conversation continued, Lamas detailed what her tipping point was that made her decided to literally run from the church after only three weeks in it.
“At this point I’m like two and a half weeks in and everybody’s calling me (asking) what’s going on,” Lamas said. “I think I feel the best I’ve ever felt, but I look sick. I obviously haven’t eaten. I’m (suffering from) malnutrition. My mind is crazy. I probably haven’t slept. I’ve been spending hours at (the Church of) Scientology. It just became my life. And then after the third week, they assign you a- they called it a (some type of) buddy. This person literally makes sure you show up for church that day if you’re a new member.”
After suffering from malnutrition and not having eaten much, it’s no surprise Lamas ended up not feeling well and had to go out and get medicine.
She started with telling us that, “One time I was at a CVS- and I turn around- this was towards the end…They make sure that around this three week period after you’ve been there a month, they know people around you will start getting concerned if this was the right decision so they assign a person to follow you around almost (to make sure) you’re not talking to other people. They follow you to make sure you are who you say you are.”
“(So) when I turn around after being at CVS, I don’t know what I needed- there was a Scientology member there,” Lamas then shockingly said. “I think I had been really sick. After that three week (period), I was dying. I think I went to CVS to get Theraflu or something. When I turn around the Scientology member was there and marked down what I had in my hand…I was like, ‘Excuse me, are you here for me? What is your name?’ They just wrote down stuff and walked away.”
Scientology stories are truly the gift that keep on giving, as each one is crazier than the next. Recently, we spoke with former Bachelor star Shayne Lamas, who exclusively opened up to us about how she was lured into Scientology.
“Everybody’s experience that has been a member of Scientology is different,” Lamas began with sharing. “It’s different in a way that everybody’s treatment plan and everybody’s auditing and certain classes you have to take- it’s all different, because it’s all based on what they find out is wrong with you and your mind and your head.”
So how did Lamas get into Scientology?
