Does "now that" mean "now so"??
Despite whatever spiritual benefits it claims to specialize in, we all know that Scientology has one especially huge specialty: DRAMA. Resident Dancing With the Stars hunk Maksim Chmerkovskiyrecently appeared on Andy Cohen's basement webseries Watch What Happens: Live where he lamented that he and formerDWTS contestant Kirstie Alley are no longer friends. The reason? Complicated but juicily star-studded. See, ever sinceLeah Remini renounced her membership to the church (which caused Alley to publicly deem Remini a "bigot"), she's been hanging out with bestie Jennifer Lopez way more. So that obviously put Chmerkovskiy in an awkward situation with Alley when he began dating Lopez. See what I'm saying? Complicated. Anyway, yeah:
[Kirstie Alley] stopped getting along with me ... We had a great relationship … But I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can’t be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.
