  1. I read this article and then knew some of the names sounded familiar. I googled some of the “celebrities”. When I googled Ali Landry I knew it sounded familiar, there were no pictures of her so I clicked on “images” and up popped an entire page of her in bikinis and some topless pictures. I quickly shut it off, but was very upset that this was on my computer now. I don’t know if this is the same actress, would like to know why she has these kind of photos if she is a devout Catholic.
    Just wanted to let you know.
    I enjoy your blog.

    In Christ,

  2. Susan,

    I have contacted Fr. Reed of Catholic TV and he recommended contacting Family Theater Productions, the creator and producer of this show, for additional information. I don’t know the actress either and don’t have any additional information on her. Thanks again for sharing your concern.
