Leah Remini Offered Big Bucks For Tell-All Memoirs Into Scientology Past
The 'King of Queens' star is already working on a revealing account into her past, just weeks after leaving the Church of Scientology
Leah Remini, the co-star of the comedy series King of Queens, made the conscious decision to leave the Church of Scientology in July this year, severing her nearly 30-year devotion to the controversial religious group. Almost a month after the New York Daily News broke the news of Remini's decision to leave the cult, the actress has since confirmed that she will be discussing all the intimate details of her life when she published her tell-all memoirs.
Remini was brave to leave behind her past
Remini's planned move into writing, which was first confirmed by Us Weekly, is due to begin almost immediately and will leave no stone unturned and no taboo ignored as she recalls a life spent with some of the most controversial religious figures in America. The actress and former Talk co-host confirmed with Us on Friday (2 August) that her book "will include [her] experiences, everything that's taboo to talk about."
Whilst she continues to adjust to life as a non-Scientology member, Remini has made no plans to dive straight into her new projects, adding in her comments to Us that she plans on taking life one step at a time.
No publication dates have been announced yet
"It's a time of change," she told the magazine. "I think the fact that my family has taken a stance and we are on a united front says a lot."
Since her decision to leave her past life behind her was made apparent, the actress has had no shortage of support, particularly from fellow Scientology abandoner Paul Haggis. The filmmaker wrote an open letter to Remini detailing his admiration for the actress and revealing that she had helped him when he left the cult himself. No date has been set for the book's publication.
