There’s only two weeks left in the American Idol competition and it’s down to three finalists. One of the three is 22-year-old Katherine McPhee and she just might be a Scientologist.

'Pod Girl' Katherine McPhee“The Internet is full of Katharine-is-a-Scientologist stories and ‘Star’ Magazine even reported that McPhee completed the Scientology ‘Purification Rundown’ course in which one reaches a new level of spirituality by swilling cooking-oil, popping niacin and sweating your butt off in a sauna,” reports the New York Post. 

For those that don’t already know about the “Rundown” it is a “religious ritual” favored by Scientologists like Katie Holmes and Kelly Preston to supposedly get the “poisons” or “toxins” out of their fatty tissue, though medical experts have dismissed it as little more than quackery.

Post reporter Linda Stassi has labeled McPhee a “Pod Girl,” as in Invasions of the Body Snatchers and says “she has this whole Damien the Omen thing going,” only revealing her true self when the cameras are turned off.

Perhaps it was just a coincidence that Scientologist Priscilla Presley showed up for a segment with McPhee at Graceland, who then delivered a medley of Elvis songs.

Ironically, despite his ex-wife’s involvement with the controversial church, Elvis himself never took up Scientology.

According to a close associate “The King” once said, “F – – – those people! There’s no way I’ll ever get involved with that son-of-a-bitchin’ group. All they want is my money.”

Something of a sour note that McPhee is unlikely to sing.

If the girl with that “Damien thing” wins the competition and then comes out of the closet proclaiming her devotion to Scientology, expect this to be something of a coup for the Sci-fi religion regarding the youth market.

Maybe McPhee could team up with newly converted Katie Holmes and the two could work twenty-something market together as a traveling acting and singing Scientology show?

However, Stassi says McPhee is “bland” and phony, questioning “is she real or is she Memorex, or maybe just a Scientologist?”

Well, stay tuned because “Pod girl” could get “kicked to the curb” this week.

Note: CultNews has learned that Katherine McPhee recently denied reports that she is a Scientologist. In an interview May 12th on KROQ 106.7 McPhee stated, “I am not a Scientologist. I was actually dating somebody who was a Scientologist. I was madly in love and sure I was like I’ll dabble in Scientology and I was quickly out the door.” So it seems that “Pod girl” may have taken a Scientology course or two, sweated in the sauna, popped niacin and sucked down some cooking oil, but ditched Scientology in the end. And she did it it all for “love.” Sounds like another song coming on.
