Masterson’s Ex-Stepdad Says His Kids Lied to Help Actor

A day after Danny Masterson learned that he had been sentenced to 30 years to life in prison for forcibly raping two women, letters asking Judge Charlaine Olmedo for leniency on Masterson’s behalf became public.

Social media lit up with reactions to the letters written by Masterson’s former That ’70s Show cast members, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Debra Jo Rupp, and Kurtwood Smith.

But Joe Reaiche, in Florida, was stunned by what he saw in the letters written by the actor’s younger siblings, Jordan and Alanna Masterson.

Jordan (Last Man Standing) and Alanna (The Walking Dead) are, like their older brother, actors, and they’ve used the Masterson name professionally throughout their careers. But they were born Jordan and Alanna Reaiche, and are half-siblings to Danny. They share a mother, Carol Masterson, but Jordan and Alanna are products of Carol’s second marriage, to Lebanese-Australian former professional rugby league player Reaiche (pronounced “reesh”).

Reaiche and his former wife met in Scientology in 1982 (Danny was 6, Christopher was 2), and they raised their children to be Scientologists as well.

In their letters to the court asking for leniency for their older brother, both Jordan and Alanna make it sound like their father abandoned them when they were very young, and Masterson stepped in to be their father figure.

The letters from Kutcher, Kunis, and Masterson’s siblings were written to the court after he was convicted on May 31 for the two rape charges. They acknowledge that Masterson is facing a harsh penalty, but they attempt to portray him as a thoughtful anti-drug warrior (something that is consistent with Masterson’s lifelong involvement in Scientology.)

It didn’t seem to faze his former cast mates that while Masterson may have preached drug abstinence to other actors, he was convicted of using drugs to incapacitate women whom he then violently raped.

Jordan and Alanna, however, have another version of their older brother. Rather than seeing him as an anti-drug preacher, they praise him as the father figure who stepped in when their actual dad, Reaiche, abandoned them at 6 and 4 years old.

“My son and daughter have very short memories about their dad,” Reaiche says. Reaiche has been telling his story about how Scientology excommunicated him and then his children “disconnected” from him for more than a decade now, initially on a national Australian television program.
