Rushing to the aid of her fellow Scientologist, Kirstie Alley has come out against the controversial Vanity Fair cover story regarding Tom Cruise.

In the October issue of the magazine, it was alleged that wife auditions were held for the 'Mission Impossible' star, in which Scientologist females were vetted to ensure a good fit for the actor.

The "Dancing with the Stars" cast member tells ET, "I think whenever you have articles written that are third and fourth parties’ opinions, it’s like the game Gossip and you don’t get the truth.”

Defending their shared belief system, she continued, "I think that probably all religions probably sound bizarre to people who are not the practitioners of them.”
