That’s the question on many minds this week after T.V star and former member Leah Remini once again re-emerged on the offense against Tom Cruise. In interviews with veteran talk-show host Larry King Now, Remini, didn’t hold her tongue in her angst against the controversial religion.
He thinks I’m the devil,’ the actress, 46, told the veteran talk show host.
Remini claimed: ‘Tom and most Scientologists, all Scientologists, are taught to believe that people like me are literally the devil, that we mean them harm.’
Tom is very well-aware of what is Scientology, truthfully. He is very well-aware that it’s an organization that is defrauding people out of their lives ‘
‘But in his heart, I believe he believes it.’
Larry King found this conversation interesting, that, he kept it going. Pressed if she felt Cruise was “delusional” she responded effectively.
I could say that about myself at the time,’ she explained.
‘I didn’t want to look. I didn’t want to believe that what I’ve been involved in my whole life was a lie, that it was damaging and hurting people,’ she said. ‘Yeah, you can say I was delusional.’
The Church of Scientology responded to the interview and other comments made from Remini..
Leah Remini’s “reality” show, like her last one, is nothing more than a scripted, rehearsed, acted and dramatized work of fiction. She and the other anti-Scientologists in her program have been expelled from the Church for unethical conduct.
Many of the family members of those Leah Remini interviewed have voiced their outrage that their personal, private family matters are being used as fodder for “reality” television and have informed the producers of the show what really affected their relationships. It was their choice to no longer associate with these toxic personalities. The Church respects the religious beliefs of others and their families’ personal choices.
Leah Remini has disparaged and exploited her former faith through a series of failed publicity stunts, culminating in her “reality” television show—featuring a cast of admitted liars who have, for a profit, been telling differing versions of the same false tales of abuse for years, many reviewed and discredited in courts of law. That A&E would promote their agenda smacks of bigotry.
Within the last month Leah Remini attempted to extort first $500,000 followed by another demand for $1,000,000 ($1.5 million total) from the Church because we responded with the truth to her dishonest and despicable harassment of the Church and its leader. It is sad that Leah Remini wishes to exploit for money those who tirelessly worked to help her when no one else was willing to tolerate her behavior. The Church was always there for Leah Remini, including picking her up from the ground after her meltdown following her firing from The Talk.
Leah Remini has become what she once vowed she would never be: “This bitter ex-Scientologist.” As we have stated numerous times, Leah Remini needs to move on with her life and career and stop blaming the Church and others for all of her personal and professional setbacks. Most of all, she needs to quit promoting hatred and religious intolerance as a means to line her pockets.
“Leah Remini: Aftermath” is really “Leah Remini: After Money.”
