Among the details to leak out was that the cult leader ordered the women to consume only a tiny amount of food, 500 calories a day, and jog for hours every day. This was partly to ensure the women matched his preferred body type, but surely also partly to break down their mental resistance. A person can't think straight eating that little, the brain needs nutrients as well as the body. Allison followed this regimen for years and I have no doubt it helped warp her thinking.
She is a victim but also a perpetrator of the abuse. Jail is what she deserves, but also perhaps what she needs to finally break away from the leader's control.
In much happier news, Michael and Tom are on a convention tour in Australia and the result has been extreme cuteness!
Firstly: Two Very Important Videos in which Michael interrupts Tom's interviews by putting his hands all over Tom's remarkably broad shoulders and chest:
Michael cuddles a vendor at the Con.
Remember how we would go YEARS without getting a photo of the guys together?
They have a week in Australia before the next convention, which hopefully means more sightseeing shots!
Love the costumes on these ladies!
They wore these same shirts in DC, LOL. No complaints - they are beautiful (& the fan is lovely as well.)
Not sure who the "Wombat Crossing" folks are but admire their aesthetic!
Hopefully many more great Australian pics to come!
