• Ron Miscavige
    A “disgusting pig” who treated women like trash

    Ron Miscavige is well known as a bully. He targeted women for put-downs and harassment. One target of his bullying was Gabriella Saccomanno, a highly accomplished professional concert pianist based at Golden Era Productions for 22 years, where at one point she was the only woman working alongside Ron. These are some of her views on Ron.

    When I used to work with him, Ron Miscavige treated me horribly. Ron would constantly argue with me and provoke me so I would get upset. Then when I did get upset, Ron would push me against a wall and try to scare me, many times. Or Ron would huff around and knock things over or throw a chair, again to scare me. I avoided being alone with Ron as much as I could.

    Other times Ron would treat me demeaningly by throwing things on the floor, especially in our kitchenette, and leaving it for me to clean up, implying that I was a woman so I should clean up after him.

    I avoided being alone with Ron as much as I could.

    As the only woman in the Music Department, Ron would demean me and argue when I was unwilling to accept his behavior. Ron was also a total disgusting pig in his personal hygiene. There was a constant pungent smell coming out of his body that made it very unpleasant to be near him. I had to hold my breath around him. His own possessions, his car, his composing room, his living room, were not just sloppy and disordered, they were dirty and smelly and kept this way, unless forced to clean up, just out of respect to the other people who had to work around him.

    Ron used to literally throw pieces of food on the floor and then say that it was someone else’s duty (namely a woman—i.e., mine) to clean it up, while laughing at his “joke.”

    Ron wouldn’t do anything to clean up after himself, and I had to personally clean up and sanitize the kitchenette numerous times after he used it. He would use utensils and put them back in the drawer without washing them. Ron used to literally throw pieces of food on the floor and then say that it was someone else’s duty (namely a woman—i.e., mine) to clean it up, while laughing at his “joke.” But when I would find a mess on the floor and ask him to clean up after himself, he would blatantly deny it was his mess and would attack me for being “after him with false accusations.”

    Ron used to go to the bathroom and urinate all over the floor and then leave his disgusting mess to others to clean up after him, again, the woman—me.

    And when I say he was a pig, I mean it in the worst meaning of the word. Ron used to go to the bathroom and urinate all over the floor and then leave his disgusting mess to others to clean up after him. He couldn’t even aim and worse didn’t care.

    Shameless is an apt word to describe Ron Miscavige.
