NXIVM follower Allison Mack invited ‘Smallville’ co-star Alaina Huffman to sex cult before arrest

Alaina Huffman was invited to check out a self-improvement organization called NXIVM – and thankfully she never did.

The 40-year-old, who played Dinah Lance/Black Canary on the WB series “小维尔,” said she was invited several times to attend meetings by her co-star 艾莉森·麦克, whom she viewed as “very aspirational,” 第六页 reported on Thursday.

“As a young woman, 27, 28, on ‘Smallville,’ Ally was a couple of years younger than me and here she was flourishing, very well put together, a really peppy and independent woman,” the actress told the outlet.

“She invited me a few times to some of these events and for whatever reason, I never made it, maybe because I was married and had kids and I might have had something else that grounded more than I needed that kind of grounding, but I can understand the appeal.”

According to Huffman, Mack, 38, was deeply involved in the group and was even planning on moving to Albany, 。. to live near their headquarters full-time.

“She was very affirmative about that,” said Huffman.

But Mack wasn’t the only follower who attempted to lure Huffman.

Fellow actress Bonnie Piesse also tried to sway Huffman into attending seminars led by NXIVM.

In court, it was revealed that Raniere’s followers called him “Vanguard.” To honor him, the group formed a secret sorority comprised of female “slaves” who were branded with his initials and ordered to have sex with him, the prosecutors said.

Women were also pressured into giving up embarrassing information about themselves that could be used against them if they left the group.
