Questions regarding Leah Remini's leaving Scientology

I'm confused about Leah Remini leaving Scientology. I know basically nothing about Scientology, and I haven't read a whole lot on this story, so please excuse me if these questions are dumb.  As I understand it these are the reasons she left Scientology: 1. She (Leah Remini) got in all kinds of shit with Scientology because she asked where the diminutive dictator's wife was? (who has not been seen for several years, and may have left/disappeared under strange circumstances, correct?) 2. She (Leah Remini) also got in a LOT of trouble for switching place cards, or just wanting to switch place cards, at the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes wedding so she could sit next to a close friend? These incidents seem like complete non-incidents to me. Why are these things considered so very wrong by the 'church'? Why would she be ostracized for these things?  Is there more to the story than this? I mean did she do other things against the teachings and/or rules of the Scientology church? When she was subjected to intensive interrogation by the Scientologists was it just over the two things I mentioned? If so, why? Neither seem to be anything of any great importance.   What kind of questions might have been asked of her during that interrogation? "Why did you want to sit with your friend?" "Why would you ask where the disappeared wife of Fearless Leader was?" Scientology members are encouraged to write up 'tattle reports' on other members, including their family and closest friends, for breaking the smallest of rules or asking the wrong questions? If this true, why do they (Scientologists)  want their members doing this? What kind of punishment was she (Leah Remini) threatened with? Are there other reasons that she left Scientology? Thanks for any help with these questions. Like I said, I know they're probably pretty dumb, but I'm baffled by this whole thing.
