    The Mystery Of Shelly Miscavige: Wife Of Scientology Leader And Matchmaker To Tom Cruise And Katie Holmes Missing Since 2007

    Did you know that a Scientologist played matchmaker to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes? Shelly Miscavige, the wife of Scientology chairman David Miscavige reportedly went on a "hunt" to find love for Cruise after his second divorce from Nicole Kidman. The result of Shelly Miscavige's matchmaking? The 2006 wedding of Tom Cruise to Katie Holmes.

    The wedding was everything the couple could have wanted, with Shelly playing cupid, and Cruise's best friend David Miscavige standing beside him as his best man. But a year later everything changed when Shelly Miscavige disappeared without a trace.

    Tom Cruise didn't exactly turn to Shelly to help him find a new wife. The New York Post reports that Cruise actually turned to Shelly's husband, David.

    "After the [Penelope] Cruz breakup, the lovelorn actor turned to his best friend, Scientology leader [David] Miscavige, for help in finding a new wife," a New York Post article reports. "The diminutive church boss, who has a notoriously volcanic temper, became irritated with constant calls from Tom. As the head of a multi-billion dollar operation, he felt it was below him to be seeking out women for the Hollywood star. He deputized his wife, Shelly, to take over the task."

    So what exactly happened after the ill-fated wedding to make Shelly Miscavige disappear? Take a look at three theories on her disappearance below:

    "The Hole" - Business Insider reports that Shelly may be in "The Hole," a mysterious group of buildings that are rumored to be where misbehaving Scientologists are held captive. While the church denies the existence of "The Hole," Shelly reportedly "misbehaved" just before her disappearance. It was reported that Shelly has filled job vacancies without the permission of her husband.

    It has been reported that anywhere between 80 and 100 people reside in "The Hole." Those who have fell out of the organizations good graces were "required to do group confessions all day and all night." Would this lead her to be locked up in "The Hole?"

    My guess is that she's been 'pensioned' off like Fat Debbie.

    It all sounds so conspiratorial, I just find it hard to believe for lack of evidence. :no:
