Leah Remini is NOT holding back. In a
new clip for the season premiere or her
reality show, ‘It’s All Relative,’ the
actress goes into great detail about her
experience leaving the Church of
Scientology. We don’t think Tom Cruise
will be happy hearing this!
Leah Remini, 45, is known for her outspoken
opinion of her former religion — Scientology.
Now, the actress is going further in depth about
her experience and reasons for leaving
the religion that she was raised in.
Leah is taking shots at Scientology again, but
this time it’s being filmed for her new TLC
reality series, Leah Remini: It’s All Relative. The
former The King of Queens star, talks with fellow
former Scientologists about the reasons behind
her leaving the church. She also discusses the
complications that arose as a result of her
renouncing the religion.
“If you make a stink in the public world, they
call you a suppressive person, which means the
church has put a stamp on you that says you
are bad,” she says in the preview clip. “They
then go to all your family and friends and say
you have to disconnect from this suppressive
person.”

She went on to add that she didn’t want her
daughter Sofia involved. “I decided I didn’t want
to raise my daughter in the church because
from what I’ve experienced and what I saw, the
church becomes your everything. It becomes
your mother, your father, your everything. You
are dependent on the church,” she tells the
women. “I just didn’t want her to be raised that
way, because let’s say in 10 years if I don’t
want to be connected to the church anymore,
my own daughter would be taught to disconnect
from me.”
Leah stated that, “If you’re raised in it as a
child, you really don’t have loyalty to your
family,” she says.
A spokesperson for the Church Of Scientology
told People the following statement. “It comes
as no surprise that someone as self-absorbed
as Leah Remini continues to rewrite history and
exploit her former religion in a pathetic attempt
to get ratings for her cable show and seem
relevant again.”
Leah Discusses The Religion With
Friends — Watch
The season premiere of It’s All Relative airs
Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.

Scientology shock you? Will you be watching her
