The actress opens up about her experiences as a member of the Church of Scientology.

Leah Remini unveils new Scientology series
'The King of Queens' star has been extremely vocal about her antipathy towards Scientology since she left the religious organisation in 2013, making numerous accusations about the Church's practises during various television appearances as well as in her best-selling book 'Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology'. Now she's opened up on the 'Today' show about her decision to tackle her new stance in a documentary series.
Katie Holmes and Leah Remini are both no longer members of Scientology
Despite the fact that former power couple Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise divorced three years ago, it seems that the pair still know how to rile each other up. As controversy about Scientology continues to hit the headlines, it appears Tom is angry that ex-wife Katie has reached out to the Scientology enemy.
The former couple still appear to be at loggerheads
With Leah Rimini in the Church’s bad books following her penning a tell-all book, Trouble Maker, about her time as a Scientologist, the Mission Impossible actor has reacted badly to Katie apologising to Remini for the way she has been treated in the past.
Following her expose of her relationship with Scientology last week, Remini said that Holmes' apology statement nearly reduced her to tears.
Following her explosive interview last week about the Church of Scientology, Leah Remini has revealed that Katie Holmes’ apology for causing her any distress in the past “almost makes me want to cry” in a new TV appearance.
Remini’s sensational appearance on ‘20/20’ on Friday was one of the biggest news items of the week, and it prompted an on-air statement of regret from Holmes – which came via a written note and not from a face-to-face interview with Holmes herself – that read: “I regret having upset Leah in the past, and wish her only the best in the future.”

Remini, most famous for her role as Carrie Heffernan on CBS sitcom ‘The King of Queens’ from 1998 to 2007, was speaking to ABC’s ‘20/20’ on Friday night (October 30th) when she made a series of claims about the religion exploiting her and then dumping her when she had outlived her usefulness.
“Being critical of Tom Cruise is being critical of Scientology itself,” she asserted. “You are a person who is anti the aims and goals of Scientology, you are evil.”

Leah Remini gets very candid about the controversial religion Scientology, which she was a member of since childhood.
The 43 year-old gained wide spread attention when leaving the Church of Scientology last summer (2013), but now she brands the movement as a total "lie", and even calls herself a "hypocrite."
For the first time since Remini's exit from the religion, she opens up about what made her decide to walk away, in an interview with BuzzFeed.
The actress and former Scientologist tells all in a new interview.
Leah Remini has given a candid interview about her experience of the Church of Scientology and why she chose to cut all ties with the controversial religion. The actress made headlines last summer after she announced that she wasn't a Scientologist anymore, prompting wild speculation and a back and forth between the Kings of Queens star and her former church.
Leah Remini Made Headlines When She Announced Her Departure From The Church Of Scientology.
After three decades as a member of the Church, founded in 1952 by L. Ron Hubbard, Remini left, saying that she didn't want to be told how to live her life. "I believe that people should be able to question things. I believe that people should value family, and value friendships [...] no one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to," she told People at the time.

The seven remaining couples were feeling the pressure this week since last week's elimination when Snooki went home. The Jersey Shore star and her professional partner were not the lowest scoring couple and even performed their samba admirably, yet it wasn't enough to save them!
