Leah Remini Opens Up About Leaving The Church Of Scientology

7/29/2013 9:00pm EDT
Leah Remini
Earlier this month, Leah Remini left the Church of Scientology after being a member for over 30 years. She reportedly was butting heads with leader David Miscavige and was becoming increasingly uncomfortable with some of the church's practices.

The actress has since come forward to explain her decision to leave, insisting she should have been able to question issues without fear of reprisal. She also appears to have chosen her friends and family over the church.

She told People.com, "We stand united, my family and I, and I think that says a lot about who we are, and what we're about."

Leah Remini
Leah Remini has thanked everyone rushing to her support after her departure from the Church of Scientology.

Remini made headlines yesterday when it was reported she quit the group. The New York Post reported she dealt with years of "interrogations," some stemming from her asking questions about Scientology leader David Miscavige's wife and the way he ran the group.

The sources say Remini was against policies barring members from questioning Miscavige's management or reporting abuse. She was also at odds with the rules making members stay away from family and friends not in the Church.

Former King Of Queens star Leah Remini has cut her ties to the Church of Scientology.

The actress has decided to end her 30-year relationship with the church over a disagreement with church head David Miscavige after questioning several of the church's strict policies.

"It all began when Leah questioned the validity of excommunication of people," a source told the New York Post on Thursday. "She is stepping back from a regime she thinks is corrupt. She thinks no religion should tear apart a family or abuse someone under the umbrella of 'religion.'"

10 Celebrities You May Not Know Are Scientologists

It's widely known that Tom Cruise, John Travolta, his wife Kelly Preston and Kirstie Alley are scientologists. Cruise is going through a very public divorce with actress Katie Holmes, and it is allegedly due to his ties with the religion.

Twelve years ago, Travolta made the film "Battlefield Earth," a film adapted from the novel by Ron L. Hubbard, the founder of Scientology.

In 2010 on Larry King Live, Alley said her religion helped her with weight loss, considering she'd only been fat three or four years of her life. "God knows where I'd be if I hadn't changed the things I have changed,"...

Interview: Nicole Sullivan Rocks!

(TJAGS weekly column) It was 9:30 PM, on a Thursday night, and I was in the middle of dinner and (more than a few) drinks at a local establishment. My phone starts vibrating in my left pocket, I don't recognize the number. I sheepishly answer and on the other end is the unmistakable voice of Nicole Sullivan (MADtv, The King of Queens, Rita Rocks) asking if this was a good time to speak. Our interview, scheduled earlier in the day, had been postponed -- I had thought, wrongly -- to another day.

She did not want to impose and explained we could reschedule. "Nonsense," I said, "we can st...

It's pretty apparent that the emergence of original programming on the internet, debuting at only minute-and-a-half to three minute clips, was geared directly at the teenage set-- playing into the whole shortening attention span and need to get their entertainment from the same rectangular box that they get the research for their term papers and with which they network and communicate with friends. Web series, as they were deemed, didn't officially become an official part of new media until they began to gain widespread popularity with lonelygirl15, a video blog from a so-called teenage gir...

In Hollywood there seems to be an everlasting stereotype that actors are extremely good looking and almost immortal. They are the untouchable eye candy on the screen. It doesn't matter what their personalities are like, we still idolize them and their looks.

Then there are those actors who seem to have very down-to-earth personalities and are so funny that you can't help but find them sexy. According to Psychology Today online, "The allure of male humor is so strong that female laughter may have evolved as a signal of sexual interest."

True Hollywood BFFs

A best friend forever (BFF) is a person whom you know really well and regard with affection and trust. In Hollywood, a best friend is often a famous pal whom you party with so you can gain popularity and get more press. In most cases, people go to clubs together just to be seen and to create hype.

Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan probably did not have heart-to-heart talks on Sunday nights while drinking wine and watching Desperate Housewives. But there are a few cases in which people really do like each other and hang out because they are in fact best friends!
