ABC News' '20/20' Investigates the Self-Proclaimed Professional Coaching Company as 'Smallville' Actress and NXIVM Member, Allison Mack, Stands Charged With Sex Trafficking
Hour Details Arrest of NXIVM Founder, Keith Raniere, and Includes Interview With Former Member Who Claims She Was Branded During Initiation Into Secret Society
‘20/20’ Airs on Friday, April 27 (10:01 – 11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC
All eyes were on “Smallville” actress and NXIVM member Allison Mack earlier this week as she emerged from court on a $5 million bond following her arrest on charges of sex trafficking. “20/20” investigates NXIVM, the self-proclaimed professional coaching company, and speaks with former members who have come forward claiming that while they derived some benefit from NXIVM classes, the experience also took a big toll on their lives. The hour reports on Mack, who allegedly tried to recruit other celebrities, including Emma Watson and Kelly Clarkson, via Twitter. “20/20” also details sex-trafficking charges against NXIVM founder Keith Raniere and includes Anchor Elizabeth Vargas’ interview with former member Sarah Edmondson. “20/20” airs on Friday, April 27 (10:01 – 11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.
Federal prosecutors allege that Mack recruited women to join what they thought was a female mentorship group, but was in fact a secret society within NXIVM “created and led by Keith Raniere.” The victims, prosecutors allege, “were then exploited both sexually and for their labor.” Mack has pleaded not guilty; Raniere has not yet entered a plea, although his attorneys have said that he is innocent of the charges.
In the interview with Vargas, Edmondson claims that this secret society is manipulative, promoting subservient behavior with slave and master terminology. She also says that she and other women were branded during their initiation into the secret society. Raniere has stated on NXIVM’s website that the secret society is not part of NXIVM and he is not associated with it. According to its website, NXIVM claims to “provide the basis and conditions for all people to explore and actualize their potential so that they can come to live purposeful lives.” In a complaint she filed with the New York Department of Health, Edmondson says she went to the initiation for the secret society expecting to receive a tattoo and was surprised to learn that she and others were to be branded. She tells Vargas that the branding procedure, in which she and other women took turns holding each other’s legs while they received their brands with a cauterizing iron, was “horrific”; and she says she later realized that the brands contained Raniere’s initials. Vargas also sits down with Mark Vicente, a member for 12 years, and Toni Natalie, a former girlfriend of Raniere’s who knew him before he started NXIVM. “20/20” also reports on another Hollywood actress who is a known NXIVM member, India Oxenberg, daughter of “Dynasty” actress Catherine Oxenberg. Vargas sits down with Catherine, who details her so far unsuccessful efforts to convince her daughter to leave the group. “20/20” also explores NXIVM’s litigation tactics against former members and critics.

Michael Rosenbaum will reprise his role as Lex Luthor in the series finale of SMALLVILLE on Friday, May 13 (8:00-10:00 p.m. ET.)
"I'm delighted to return for the series finale," says Rosenbaum. "I'm simply doing it for all of the fans out there who made SMALLVILLE the great success it is. I appreciate all of their passion, their relentlessness and even their threats. Ha ha. I can't wait to hug the old crew back in Vancouver one last time and see all of my old friends once again. Oh, and for Lex to become the badass he's destined to be."
Executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders added, "It feels like the stars are aligning, literally. We couldn't be more excited about having Michael back. And as far as the way he returns, there'll be no doubt about how Lex becomes the great rival in Clark Kent's life. He is the villain of the story."
Rosenbaum exited at the end of season seven after Lex confronted Clark (Tom Welling) in the Fortress of Solitude. Years of secrets came to a head as Clark's former friend finally discovered the truth about Clark's alien heritage. The rivalry between the two culminated into a final showdown and crumbled, literally, under an icy avalanche as the Fortress fell. Lex's body was never found. Now, Lex has risen from the ashes to fulfill his place in destiny as Clark Kent's greatest nemesis.
SMALLVILLE was developed for television by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar ("Shanghai Noon," "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor"), based on the DC Comics characters. Kelly Souders & Brian Peterson serve as executive producers, along with James Marshall, Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins, Joe Davola and Tom Welling. The series is produced by Tollin/Robbins Productions, Millar/Gough Ink and Warner Bros. Television. SUPERMAN was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.

The CW has announced that Smallville's series finale will be a two-hour episode which will air Friday, May 13th. Here's how The CW describes the finale:
The story of a young Clark Kent (Tom Welling) and his journey to become the Man of Steel has captivated audiences for a decade. This final season, Clark attempts to find a balance between saving the world, which becomes even more difficult as the Vigilante Registration Act separates a nation, and spending time with his new fiancée Lois Lane (Erica Durance). Whether it’s donning glasses as a disguise, changing in a phone booth or learning how to fly, this season has put Clark closer to his destiny than ever before. Taking on Darkseid and battling the darkest of his demons, this two-hour event will send Clark soaring towards his birthright to secure his place in history as the world’s greatest protector.
Supernatural's season finale will air as a two-hour episode the following week, on May 20th. You can find The CW's press release announcing Smallville's season finale here:

From Kelly Souders & Brian Peterson Talk About Teri Hatcher On Smallville
As mentioned in an earlier post, Smallville Executive Producers Brian Peterson & Kelly Souders spoke with the press on Friday after a screening of Friday's 200th episode, "Homecoming."
One point touched upon by the producers was the casting of Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane's mother, Ella Lane, in an upcoming episode titled "Abandoned." The episode airs in November, and some spoilers may follow.
"We have our dream list, and that's right up at the top," Peterson said. "The video actually came from a personal story. This actually happened for somebody in the [writers'] room. Her best friend just found out she has a very significant illness and is dying momentarily, so she sat down and made all of these videos for her child. With Ella, was we just pulled that into the show, because it was so heart-wrenching. Then we thought 'Who do you get to play Lois' mom?' Then everybody just looked at each other and it was like, beat, beat... Teri Hatcher! And she's been fantastic," Brian continued.
"She was wonderful," Kelly added. "We got to watch the footage yesterday, and all I will say is I watched three takes, and then I had to stop for a while, because it was so heart-wrenching, and she had an incredible performance. It was beautiful."
As for Teri's former Lois & Clark co-star Dean Cain, Brian Peterson shared that he was aware that the former Clark Kent, who played Curtis Knox in "Cure," had recently talked about the notion of returning to Smallville. "We would love to have him back, actually," he said. "I think that may be on his wish as well as ours, so if that happens, that would be fantastic."
Episode #200 of Smallville airs on Friday. Teri Hatcher's episode, "Abandoned," will be on in November. Keep reading KryptonSite for an air date as soon as it is confirmed.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- It was a Thanksgiving weekend wedding for "Superman Returns" star Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford. Routh, 28, married the 29-year-old actress Saturday at El Capitan Ranch, according to People magazine and the celebrity news site The Insider. The couple met four years ago. The bride wore a Junko Yoshioka sheath dress with Chantilly lace and platinum beading, and the groom wore a cashmere suit. In a People interview in June, Routh called Ford his personal kryptonite, saying, "She brings me to my knees." Telephone messages left with Routh's publicists, Emily Yomtabian and Simon Halls, weren't returned. Routh starred in last year's "Superman Returns." Ford starred in the 2004 science fiction film "Outside," and her TV credits include appearances on "Ugly
Betty" and "Moesha."

Now it COULD be mistaken (after all, this is the same station that said Season 5 was the last)... but it could be for real. If true, we'll just have to be really jealous of our friends up North.

Smallville Heads Toward Cliff

Steven DeKnight, co-executive producer of The CW's Smallville, told SCI FI Wire that Lana Lang's (Kristin Kreuk) pregnancy will be the main focus of the series when it returns with original episodes, starting on April 19 with "Progeny," an episode that features former Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter. "That's going to come to a head," DeKnight said in an interview. "It won't be resolved, but twist and turns will be revealed. ... Definitely. The triangle [of Clark, Lex and Lana] will definitely become more pointed on all corners. Cross my fingers, the end of the season looks pretty damn exciting."

Meanwhile, Lois Lane (Erica Durance) will be featured in a big way in "Prototype," an episode DeKnight wrote. "She's always a delight to write for," he said. "I really like the way we've moved the Clark/Lois storyline along this year. You're starting to see glimmers of interest, even though neither one of them would ever admit it."

Also look for Clark Kent (Tom Welling) to face a new, formidable foe who may have some roots in the Superman comic mythology. "Or Clark fights a dinosaur," DeKnight said with a laugh. "I'm not sure which yet."

DeKnight added that for Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum), "an old venture comes to fruition in [a] catastrophic way. It's the culmination of years' worth of planning."

It all leads up to another big cliffhanger for the sixth season. "No cities are going to burn, but [the characters] will definitely be in trouble," DeKnight said. Smallville airs on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT. —Kathie Huddleston

From DTS:  In today's Watch with Kristin's atE! confirms, the casting of Lynda Carter the former Wonder Woman as Chloe Sullivan's mother in the upcoming episode "Progeny" to air on April 12th. but according with Kristin we should expect her visit a little bit sooner.

Question: Wow! "Justice" was, like, the best Smallville episode ever! Are there any plans for a spin-off?— Jeremie
Ausiello: "We've been talking about it," CW boss lady Dawn Ostroff told me. "I don't know if it's going to happen. It's hard; there are so many pieces to the puzzle, [including] rights issues. But it's something that we talked about. It's not going to happen immediately, but I wouldn't say never. Maybe somewhere down the road."

October 13, 2006 (Burbank, CA) - Both of The CW's Thursday dramas, "Smallville" and "Supernatural," delivered week-to-week growth in viewers and key demos despite facing increasingly tougher Thursday competition, according to preliminary live plus same day Nielsen ratings for Thursday, Oct. 12.

Compared to last week, "Smallville" gained 9% in adults 18-34 (2.5/8), 10% in adults 18-49 (2.2/6), 33% in women 18-34 (2.4/7), 11% in women 18-49 (2.0/5) and 9% in viewers (4.9million). "Smallville" hit its season best performance in women 18-34.

"Supernatural" posted increases over last week of 7% in adults 18-49 (1.6/4), 6% in women 18-34 (1.8/4), 14% in women 18-49 (1.6/4) and 11% in viewers (3.70mil).

The CW's Thursday line-up of "Smallville" and "Supernatural" mark a considerable improvement over UPN's Thursday night from a year ago, with increases of 11% in adults 18-34 (2.1/6), 12% in adults 18-49 (1.9/5), 50% in men 18-34 (2.1/6) and 58% in men 18-49.

Next week, on Smallville - a Toyota Camry

Soon Clark Kent will face the one foe that can control his actions and dictate his movements, and he won't be able to do a thing about it.


When you watched "Smallville" last night, while you were grumbling about the 27 minutes of commercials for other CW shows that kept interrupting you from watching this one, and all with those green construction-paper style graphics that made you wonder if they decided to save money by hiring kids to do them -- you might have missed this:

Chloe and Jimmy Olson were in a car in the woods at night. They talk, there's some playful banter... and they both stop, wrapped in their own thoughts, giving us plenty of time to clearly hear the commercial for the new Toyota Camry hybrid on the car radio. Ha! Take that, TiVo!

A few weeks ago Clark fought a Batgirl-ish heroine who used Acuvue contacts, according to the carefully placed box. Last season Lois happened to be driving the same model car that was sponsoring the show and she even used its custom features to distract a security guard (guard distraction not guaranteed, see local dealer for details).

Hardly new, of course, and hardly surprising. TV shows started out blatantly sponsored, and with people buying shows on DVD and skipping past commericials with their DVRs the ad people have to do something in defense. So we get Buicks in "Desperate Housewives," Oreos in "7th Heaven," Chilis in "The Office," and probably Home Depot shovels for "Heroes."

What do you think? Annoying? Invisible? Inevitable? How long before characters in one CW show start talking about how great the others are?

Big day in "Smallville" for a teenage super fan

Clark Kent (Tom Welling), right, confronts Green Arrow (Justin Hartley) during the filming of "Smallville."


Jimmy Olsen (Aaron Ashmore, left) joins the staff of the Daily Planet on this season's "Smallville."

BURNABY, B.C. — "I think we have time for one more question," says Kendra Voth, a production executive on "Smallville."

"Um, I think I've asked all mine." No, I haven't, why did I say that? This is my last chance!

"Oh, come on, you've come all this way," says star Tom Welling with a smile. "Ask me one more question."

OK, this was it; whatever I asked, it had better be good.

"Will we ever see Clark Kent don the red cape and become Superman?" It was one of the questions I had been dying to ask the whole time — the whole time I've watched the show, in fact. And much to my surprise, I got a very direct reply, and not the one I had been expecting.

It's a bright September Monday outside Vancouver; I've been invited to the set of "Smallville" after writing an appreciation of the show ("Why 'Smallville's' Clark Kent is way cooler than 'Superman,' " July 19). Voth walks a friend and me up a warehouse ramp and into a short hallway, at the end of which are two massive wooden doors. As Voth opens one, we hear two male voices.

"They're rehearsing," Voth whispers. We take this as an immediate cue to be as silent as possible. We pick our way over cables, wires, cords, all snaking their way to various pieces of equipment. We emerge in front of the Green Arrow's penthouse, a beautifully built, very modern, angular-looking apartment, set behind a huge clock, which can be seen from the inside.


"Smallville," 8 p.m. Thursdays on the new CW, KSTW-TV.
This is season 6's newest set, and home to "Smallville's" latest superhero, Green Arrow, played by former soap star Justin Hartley. But unlike the other heroes and villains in "Smallville," Green Arrow doesn't derive his powers from meteorites; in fact, he doesn't even have superpowers.

"Green Arrow is the closest to Batman we get," Voth whispers. Like Batman, Green Arrow is not exactly lacking financially and he's extremely enigmatic. He has a huge company devoted to making arrows and other weapons, some of which he stores in his secret lair, behind that giant clock — and like Batman, as soon as darkness falls, he undergoes a transformation, all to fight the powers of evil.

Around 10:30 a.m., director Jeannot Szwarc, who has been with "Smallville" for many seasons, decides he's ready for filming. As the crew sets up, Hartley darts off the set for a one-on-one interview, which we do in the nearby set of The Daily Planet (perfect for an interview!). I try to keep myself composed: It's your first interview; don't blow it. You'll be fine, just stay calm. Keep breathing, in, out, in, out, in... .

"Nice to meet you," Hartley says graciously.

"Nice to meet you, too." Thank goodness, my voice still works! In the interview, Hartley seems absolutely ecstatic about everything to do with the show. Asked how he feels about being the newest "Smallville" cast member, he replies, "When you see someone at 6 in the morning with a smile on their face, you know they're having fun."

This upbeat attitude shines through everything Hartley says. He gives some background on how Clark and Green Arrow — also known as Oliver Queen — met. Oliver had come to Metropolis for a class reunion, but all of his classmates seemed to be meeting untimely deaths. His suspicions for the cause of the deaths rest on (who else?) Lex Luthor. So Oliver begins his quest to form a team of heroes to fight back. First recruit: Clark Kent.

Hartley says being the new person on the set has been pretty painless. "It's smooth running, [after five seasons] the people know what they're doing, and can welcome the new guy more."

And, says the former "Passions" actor, it's a great change from soap operas. With soaps, he says, he could have 30 to 40 pages of lines to memorize per night. But on "Smallville," "there's less to memorize, and we're allowed to be more creative with our characters."

The only down side: "My family is not with me." Justin's wife, Lisa Hartley, and their 2-year-old daughter, Isabella, are back home in Los Angeles. Hartley's eyes sparkle as he tells how when he calls his wife, he can always hear the "Aquaman" pilot, of which he is the star, playing in the background.

"Aquaman" was never picked up, but that doesn't stop little Isabella from using the name for her daddy. "She calls me Aquaman, which is kind of embarrassing, having your daughter call you the name of a canceled show. When she's being a little smarty-pants, she calls me Justin."

We go back to the set and watch Hartley and Welling rehearse some emotional scenes, as the crew and the cast members get used to their gorgeous penthouse set. (Green Arrow has an amazing collection of colorful furniture, art and books. And high-tech arrows, of course.)

Late in the afternoon, I finally get my chance to interview Welling, and we walk back to The Daily Planet set.

I sit only a few feet from Welling. He looks exactly like the farm boy from Kansas we see every Thursday. His smile is that perfect movie-star smile no mortal can achieve, and his eyes are such an intense blue that they nearly match the trademark Clark Kent blue shirt he's wearing.

About those shirts: It seems like Welling, after all these years, would go through a lot of them. So how many has he actually worn? "Thousands — not hundreds, thousands," he says.

"We have a whole trailer full of them. And it's funny, because if I get a stain or something I go and say, hey, can I get another shirt? And they're like, sure, just a second, and they actually go through the shirts before giving me one, even though they're all the same!"

This season, Welling says, he is most excited about seeing the forming of the Justice League, with Green Arrow and Jimmy Olsen.

Welling also expresses relief that the show has finally come to the point where "characters are making choices and leaving the whirlpool of drama," much of which centered on Clark's high-school experience.

Can Welling relate to Clark's adolescent angst?

"I think anyone who has been through high school can associate with Clark's journey," he says. "People eventually grow up and realize that there is no normal, there is no cool group."

Welling is perfectly charming, though his answers are more guarded than Hartley's. I ask him if it's ever difficult to play someone who is so purely good all the time.

"So purely good?" he asks, surprised. "I don't know if Clark is purely good. He battles with what's right and wrong. He causes a lot of collateral damage, and he does go through a lot of inner turmoil."

Then Voth reminds me that I have time for one more question. With Welling's encouragement, I ask it: "Will we ever see Clark Kent don the red cape and become Superman?"

"No," he says emphatically. "This show will always be about Clark Kent. The transition to Superman is so catastrophic that it's a whole new show once he starts flying around."

And with that, Tom Welling and Clark Kent disappear, back to Smallville. All is right in the world, for now.
