Leah Remini on Why Jennifer Lopez Said No to Scientology and How the ‘Cult’ Can Be Stopped
In the three years since her bestselling memoir Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology hit stores, Leah Remini has emerged as the face of Scientology whistle-blowing.
The former King of Queens star, who defected from Scientology in 2013, has made it her personal mission to expose the alleged abuses (both physical and psychological) and harassment perpetrated by the cult-like religion’s leadership—including its chief David Miscavige and his best pal Tom Cruise. Her primary platform is Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, an Emmy-winning A&E docuseries that brings the horror stories of ex-Scientologists to light.
Co-hosted by Mike Rinder, a former senior executive of the Church of Scientology International and Sea Org, its fraternal religious sect whose members sign billion-year contracts, the show’s third season will, in the words of Remini, tackle “how they use their millions of dollars in tax-exempt money to bully, harass and attempt to silence those that are speaking out.”
