John Travolta’s wife wants to accept Oprah’s reality show, erase masseur-gate

John Travolta and Kelly Preston
Whenever I think of Kelly Preston, I remember the nonsense she spouted during her first interview after she gave birth to son Benjamin, who turns two in late November. Kelly is 49, and I don’t believe the conspiracy theories about how she didn’t carry Benjamin. I think the reality for Kelly is that she lives deep in denial in the bowels of Scientology and she’s so suppressed her “reactive mind” that she doesn’t have one of her own. The lady sounded completely brainwashed to me. (Watch the video and/or read what I wrote on this last year if you’d like more background.)

While countless masseurs, employees and random men have come forward with stories of being sexually assaulted by John Travolta, I believe that Kelly willfully kept herself in the dark and that she decided to believe his explanations when the issue came up. After all, her “religion” discourages critical thinking at all costs. She is not used to questioning anything, and she’s been living under that set of rules for decades. Even if her old friend Nicole Kidman offered her an exit strategy from her marriage, I doubt she’ll take it.

All that is preface to this story from the National Enquirer about how Kelly is considering accepting Oprah Winfrey’s offer for a family reality show on the OWN network. She reportedly thinks it will go a long way toward convincing the public of the happy family image she has of her life with John, when he’s not disappearing for trips to the spa. We heard that Oprah is gunning for a famous family to have a reality show on her flailing network, and that she’s approached Travolta, Will Smith and Tom Cruise. If Kelly has her way, the Travoltas might just accept the offer. Here’s more, thanks to Mike Walker in the National Enquirer, who broke this story:

Embattled Kelly Preston – devastated by the avalanche of allegations that hubby John’s gay… yet still desperate to somehow save her beloved family – told pals she’s now a definite “maybe!” Said a source: “John has a thick skin when it comes to these gay headlines, but Kelly suddenly realized that bringing cameras into their home might be the perfect way to show that she and John are a real husband and wife in a tight-knit, loving family. But while Kelly’s gung ho on the idea, she’s having a hard time convincing John – who’s refusing to have his private family life viewed under a microscope.” Kelly still harbors doubts about whether a reality show would be good for her family, but she’s wavering, so stay tuned!

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, Mike Walker’s column, June 25, 2012]

John has the right idea, and I get the feeling that Kelly goes along with whatever he wants. This isn’t a Dina Eastwood situation. R

Meanwhile there’s been all sorts of news about Travolta. We heard last week that he had a six year affair in the 80s with a male pilot, whose ex lover came out publicly with the story. Travolta’s former secretary also confirmed the story on the record. The Enquirer [via Radar] is reporting that John’s ex, the pilot, is ready to tell all with a memoir, and that he’s fielding offers now. They speculate that this could be the last straw for Kelly, but I would imagine she’s had plenty of last straws.

Also, do you remember how there was drama when two of Travolta’s accusers fired their lawyer and defected to Gloria Allred? The original lawyer, Okorie Okorocha, is suing Allred for poaching his clients. In new court documents he alleges that he was close to reaching a settlement between one of his clients and Travolta’s camp. The stipulation in the settlement was that Travolta’s name would never be used, and that there would be a stiff non-disclosure agreement attached to the money. Of course.

    It’s all quite sad and pathetic. But I guess that’s how cults are.

  2. Jackie O says:

    if these two, and his fans, wish to continue supporting the charade and cover ups, so be it. however, if oprah promotes this dirty mess of a life, she is even more desperate than i thought.

  3. Dorothy#1 says:

    I would watch it!! 🙂

  4. Kasey says:

    I think this might be the answer to the Kardashian takeover. I seriously think that besides myself and Dorothy#1 enough people might watch this show out of a mixture of curiousity/anticipation. Does anyone else think (this concept at least-not sure how this will work with OWN and might have better success backed by Seacrest) might take the Kardashian klan down a few notches?

  5. Susan says:

    This is SUCH a bad idea. Less is more. Kelly should stay home and try to maintain stability for the kids. That is the one thing she can control.

    She’s the ultimate beard….. Clooney and Travolta???

    I think she’s known all along that her husband was gay and that the marriage was a coverup.
    I don’t think she birthed the newest baby, and I don’t think it’s even biologically hers. There have been massive studies about IVF, and fertility after age 40. And age 43 is the age in which it is near impossible to be pregnant using a woman’s own eggs.

    That leaves me with one question… is she also gay? What did she get out of this whole marriage?

    • Lucy says:

      No I don’t thinks she’s gay, what did she get from this “marriage” moolah that’s what

    • Malificent says:

      Her son could easily be genetically hers if she used eggs or embryos from earlier in her fertility — they can last for years if frozen. And the onset of menopause is gradual and differs widely. It’s not like every woman is instantly completely infertile when they reach a certain age. There are women who can and do get pregnant in their late 40s the “old-fashioned” way — it’s just statistically very unlikely.

      • gg says:

        My sister did in vitro and had her own twins at age 43, and so did my doctor.

        I just don’t see any motivation on her part to have somebody else carry her child, especially since she just lost Jett, and also since her figure obviously was post-pregnancy after. Check out her boobs, they were huge and she was thick in the middle for awhile after he was born.

    • Playlist says:

      Yes, she is the ultimate Beard. Yes, she did know what kind of man she was marrying. What is she getting out of it? Everything. As JT’s wife she had built in fame that opened doors to an upscale celebrity lifestyle and an open invitation to all celebrity events. Her career was nothing to shout about and she had an easier route to fame as JT’s wife. Many Hollywood Beards have their own sex partners (whether same sex or opposite). Kelly got status, a rich lifestyle and an easy life. It’s the dream of every dating Beard in Hollywood.

      Her husband’s wealth and status (and their church) also buys a buffer to cover up any phony pregnancy. As the perfect Beard she lives by the moto “deny, deny, deny”, then she moves the focus to something else she can talk about.

    What loving exs, all ready to write a book or doing interviews. Anyway all ready to sell their past ‘love’ or whatever.
    I’m not defending John, seriously everyone knows he’s gay, but people who cared about him in the past should just stop (and I’m talking about the love stories, not the harassment, THAT is legitimate). Anyway it’s horrible.

  8. lucy2 says:

    This would be a disaster. His best bet is to break ties with COS and come clean – perpetuating the idea of them being a “normal married couple” would only make it worse, I think. Plus, reality shows that invade a family’s life never turn out well.
    It’s been rumored that Oprah has involvement with COS, that list of her wanted families sure makes me think it’s possible.

    I’ve never really cared for Kelly, she gives off a weird, cold vibe. She seems way into COS, and probably just lets them handle all the problems.

    • gg says:

      Listen, everybody from CoS gives off a robotic vibe. Ever meet one? Creeepy.

      I agree though that they really need to dump the Co$ and just come clean. They could be heroes.

  9. Veruca says:

    I do not like this woman. I do not like their ”religion” and how it operates. I do not like the lies that they continually profit from.

    That said, I feel so sorry for their children. They deserve so much better than having their lives televised just so Daddy can save face.

  10. Really? says:

    Ugh, he looks like he drinks formaldehyde cocktails, and her jugs are painfully enormous. If i were them i’d just go into hiding. I don’t know and i don’t WANT to know anything about them!

  11. mia says:

    I wish everyone would leave these Travoltas alone. Why is anyone interested if there are no children and cameras involved?
    Wish they had given this much attention to what Jerry Sandusky was doing.

    • Nanea says:

      But there are children involved.

      Kelly’s first child (with Kevin Gage) that she abandoned, a son that is disabled – and then Jett, who died because his parents’ religion prevented him from getting the treatment he needed.

  12. Lisa says:

    Moooooo. That’s the sound of Oprah’s cash cow celebrating. Who’s going to watch this shit?

  13. Lindy says:

    I think I have masseur-gate fatigue. I am just kind of wondering when the final nail in the coffin will get hammered in, and things will begin to really unravel. I am sure it’s just a matter of time.

  14. Brianna says:

    The last thing this family needs is a reality show. They need to lay low and sort out their problems.

  15. SweetCaroline says:

    Funny how the more I look at these pictures, the more Travolta looks like Sandumsky. Seriously…I’m grossed out!

  16. SweetCaroline says:

    Travolta’s eyes are hiding secrets. He’s got a crazy look in his eyes. Don’t look too closely…you might turn to stone.
