Heidi: Barbara Bouchey is in denial; Nxivm is and ever was: a sex & money girl trap schemed by filthy, thieving, power-mongering, misogynist pedophile

In my opinion Barbara Bouchey is in denial. I hope it helps her with everyone else, for me to say so.

She’s getting better than when I first met her in 2011, but even this past summer we were still arguing over whether or not Keith could be a genius despite cheating on the only IQ test he apparently ever took.

We also argued over whether or not she was “love bombed” — Barbara then vehemently denied being so — after she casually described the cruelest “love-bombing” experiences I’ve ever heard of, including those excuses the harem made about why she wasn’t allowed in the accounting office for her own sake, because of her own “issues,” etc.

Denial can be a very strange, defensive, inflexible, delusional, sometimes hysterically self-protective state.

What looks like a blatant lie or inconsistency could be “honest,” utter self deception. What looks like a bully – by her taking over a conversation could be someone desperately shutting out truth or other realities they can’t yet face.

It’s said you don’t know what anyone’s been through until you walk a mile in their moccasins. Pray you never have to tread where Barbara and many NX victims have been with the psychological torment Raniere, Salzman and their minions inflicted.

Barbara could try to understand how scary the prospect of NX continuing on in any way, shape or form is to other victims — those less in denial — for her part. But that would mean accepting the horrendous reality of what NX is and ever was: a sex & money girl trap schemed by filthy, thieving, power-mongering, misogynist pedophile and nothing more. Ever.

  • You’re right, Heidi.
    Read Catherine Oxenberg’s book “Captive” where she describes all the NXIVM women lining up to be French Kissed by Raniere.
    NXIVM. Come for the self-help classes. Stay for the Ten Day Long Orgies.

  • For once I agree with Heidi Hutchinson.

    Barb does seem like a nice person overall, but I have to agree with Heidi that Barb suffers from strong ‘denial’.

    For instance, Barb has convinced herself (and honestly expects us to believe) that she didn’t know Keith was ’emotionally’ involved with other harem members. LOL.

    However, I believe that Barb chose to overlook Keith’s many emotional relationships (with other harem members) because she HONESTLY THOUGHT that she was Keith’s Queen Bee forever —- and that he’d never trade her in for a ‘newer model’ as she got older. That was the fairy tale she told herself.

    But as she advanced in age and it became apparent that Keith would rather fuck younger harem members in their 20’s — I truly believe that’s when Barb decided to leave NXIVM and break up with Keith.

    I truly believe that she left Keith (and NXIVM) out of anger and/or jealously after having been reduced from Queen Bee status to granny harem member status (just like Karen U, Nancy and the other women from his 1990’s harem).

    The only difference is that the other granny members didn’t mind him preferring younger girls, whereas Barb did mind.

    It’s just my opinion of course, but I think it’s very logical.

  • Barbara,

    If you think this well written article by Heidi is unfair wait until the “court of public” opinion weighs in, on your defense of Nxivm doing some good.

    Tens of thousands of people on social networks in addition to the media are going to jump on you for your defense of “Nxivm doing some good.”

    Barbara can you please wait until the trial is over to defend the “good Nxivm did”?

    Please for your own sake. I do not want to see your reputation obliterated after you have been through so much and fought so hard for so long.

  • The pot calling the kettle black. A screwed up Mormon telling someone from another disfunctional upbringing that she’s screwed up. I’ve seen it all now. LOL
