E!'s The Arrangement, which airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT, stars gorgeous Josh Henderson as an A-list actor in the thrall of a self-help cult called The Institute for the Higher Mind, whose marriage to a young actress (Christine Evangelista) is being micromanaged by the group's charismatic leader (Michael Vartan).
I've loved Josh since his Scene 23 days!
It's hard not to catch that it's vibing on the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes/Scientology stories, which included rumors that Cruise's people had auditioned several actresses to become his wife before settling on Holmes. Holmes did not renew her contr — I mean, she later divorced him.
I think we could come to an arrangement!
The Arrangement is bringing in boffo ratings — 2.2M total viewers when it premiered March 5 — but I can't help wondering whether E! just low-key went to war with Scientology. Good on them!
