Few shows probe the dark underbelly of Hollywood better than “E! True Hollywood Story”, and the new promo released on Thursday spotlights upcoming episodes focusing on the bizarre NXIVM sex cult and Kim Kardashian.
In the promo, former “Dynasty” star Catherine Oxenberg is seen discussing her daughter, India, who became caught up in the cult headed by Keith Raniere.
“Never in a million years would I have thought a self-help group could be a sex cult,” says Oxenberg, 57, in the teaser.
Oxenberg was eventually able to free her daughter from the clutches of NXIVM, in which actress Allison Mack, 37, played a key role; the former “Smallville” star is currently awaiting sentencing after entering a guilty plea to charges of racketeering conspiracy.
The promo also includes a look at another episode featuring the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star, with a voiceover asking a provocative question.
“Can Kim become the next president of the United States?” says a voice, belonging to Jeetendr Sehdev, author of The Kim Kardashian Principle. “Absolutely.”
Another upcoming episode will focus on whether women in hip hop have it tougher than their male counterparts, and will include interviews with Da Brat, Yo-Yo, MC Lyte, Salt-N-Pepa, Young M.A, and Rapsody.
New episodes of “E! True Hollywood Story” kick off on October 6.
