Right off the bat, it took everything in my power not to write “Hot Donna Quit Scientology” as the headline, and to be honest, I’m not entirely at peace with that decision. Anyway, Laura Prepon turned a lot of heads today by revealing that she left the Church of Scientology five years ago. She doesn’t get into any specifics except to say that motherhood helped her “move on and evolve from that.” Of course, the old gossip hound in me can’t help but remember that she dated Christopher Masterson — Francis from Malcolm in the Middle — from 1999 to 2007, so God only knows what she knows about his brother Danny. Maybe reach out to Leah Remini, that’s all I’m saying. (People)
