Out of the Broom Closet: Witch Joins Cast of Real Housewives

Fri, Oct. 25, 2013 Posted: 05:17 PM

Former actress and interior designer Carlton Gebbia has joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In a promotional trailer for the 4th season Gebbia says, "I'm a witch."

Gebbia told The Daily Beast, "Well, there’s a lot of debate about what I supposedly practice, because Wicca and other religions are covered under the umbrella of Paganism. I’m Celtic, which is my ancestry. And I practice witchcraft. My grandmother was a Pagan."

Some of Hollywood's most popular actresses have portrayed witches: Sandra Bullock, Melissa Joan Hart and Mila Kunis to name a few.

Actresses and singers are less likely to confirm involvement in wicca, paganism or satanism. Instead rumors abound.

In a 1992 TV interview Karla LaVey, the daughter of Anton LaVey (author of the Satanic Bible), claimed that actress Jayne Mansfield was a witch. The Lady Lazarus blog contradicts the "Mansfied is a satanist" story: "As with many legends, this one was most assuredly manufactured."

Singer Stevie Nicks has also been accused of being a witch because her music is copyrighted by Welsh Witch Music.
