Leah Remini to pen memoir detailing her Scientology experiences 'Everything that's taboo will be in it'

It's the news the Church of Scientology have probably been dreading.

High profile defector Leah Remini, 43, has revealed she's writing a tell-all book about her experiences within the controversial religion.

Speaking at the 15th annual DesignCare event in Malibu, Remini told Us: 'It will include my experiences, everything that's taboo to talk about.'

Paying no heed to the powerful enemies she has made since her split from the institution, she said: 'We stand united, my family and I, and I think that says a lot about who we are, and what we're about.'

The diminutive showed no signs of being bowed by the attacks on her character since she left Scientology as she posed with her friend Holly Robinson Peete.

Talking to People magazine she defended her choice to break with the church after 30 years.

'I believe that people should be able to question things,' she explained.

Meanwhile, Crash director Paul Haggis praised the actress in an open letter to The Hollywood Reporter, saying that she was one of just two high profile names who refused to disconnect from him after his defection in 2009.

'I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct.

'That for me, that's what I'm about. It wouldn't matter what it was, simply because no one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to.'

Leah was said to have been ostracised and subjected to intensive interrogation within the religion.

The Church of Scientology said in a statement to MailOnline: 'The Church respects the privacy of parishioners and has no further comment.'

Telling all: Remini is writing her memoirs, and not holding back by all accounts

Former King Of Queens star Leah joined the Church with her mother in the 1970s after relocating to Los Angeles from Brooklyn to pursue her acting dream.

Since her split with the institution prominent church members such as Kirstie Alley have appeared to attack their former friend.

The fallout from Remini's Scientology defection continues to gather momentum and has now enveloped another big name in the drama... Katie Holmes.

Tom Cruise's ex-wife may have left both him and the controversial religion, but Leah's sister, Nicole, has claimed in a widely reported interview that Holmes, now 34, joined 62-year-old Kirstie Alley in writing negative reports about the King of Queens star after Katie's 2006 wedding to Cruise.

According to Radar Online, Nicole, a former Scientologist, claims that both Holmes and Alley wrote ‘knowledge reports’ to the church about 43-year-old Leah’s behaviour. (Church followers are understood to be obliged to submit write-ups on fellow members' transgressions.)

The Church of Scientology strenuously deny any of the sensational allegations brought by Nicole.

Leah, who left the church after 37 years, apparently sparked the chain of events at Cruise and Holmes' Italian wedding when she and non-Scientologist friend Jennifer Lopez tried to change seats so they could be next to one another.

Nicole told former Village Voice editor Tony Ortega, who then relayed it via his blog, The Underground Bunker: 'She wanted to sit with Leah, and so Leah went to make it happen.'

But a Hollywood publicist 'took exception to Leah’s request and complained to Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise that Leah was causing a scene,' Ortega described Nicole as telling him.

'Later, Leah asked other people at the event if she had caused a scene and they said she hadn’t,' Nicole says.

One friend of Nicole's then submitted a report to the church in support of the Brooklyn born star which led to four other people writing to the church about the incident, two of which were allegedly Holmes and Alley.

Nicole says Leah told a Scientologist friend what happened and the friend submitted a report to the church, taking Leah’s side.

'They wrote that Leah was an embarrassment to Scientology,' Nicole said. 'They said she ruined the wedding. All she did was ask to change her seat.'

Nicole has also claimed that Leah’s questioning of why church leader David Miscavige’s wife was not at the wedding and is rarely seen in public also caused the church to question her.

by Anonymousreply 1407/31/2013

So do we think Leah was on the Scientology bandwagon because she thought she'd one day make movie history with Tom Cruise? And now when it's clear her star is never going to rise, she's using this somewhat small incident to take them all down with her? And maybe even gambling her career will be reactivated by her unexpected and kind of heroic/scary behavior?

If she survives that is. I'd've waited until the book was written before I announced it.

by Anonymousreply 1507/31/2013

Leah, like many Scieno victims was raised in the cult. She was abused in Sea Org, after as a young teen signing a billion year (or is it trillion, the answer's really not relevant) contract. I would guess that the credible and extreme threats on her family and career are what's motivating her to retaliate so strongly, despite the real risk to her life.

Scientology has many "front" organizations and people designed to lure the start struck or the addicted or the seeker of truth into what APPEARS to be a benign organization.

It's a roach motel situation. Once you are in you have a fuck of a time getting out.

Scientology, like Hare Krishna etc., will resort to ANY tactic from torture to murder to protect it's interests.

However, I guarantee you that despite the surface sales pitches of claims of inclusion, from Day-1 Scienos, worse than any other cult, are extremely racist, homophobic, sexist, misogynist, etc. This stems from the original creator Hubbard's documented mental illness and extreme anger and resentment.

by Anonymousreply 10208/06/2013

From Tony Ortega's blog, The Underground Bunker.

"There are a number of stories at that say that Leah is going to write a book and the sky is the limit from publishers for her story.

My (Tony Ortega) information is that Us Weekly (probably knowingly) mangled what she said to make it look like she's already planning a book. The truth is she has more immediate concerns and is not considering a book yet, even though she's had numerous offers. That may change and she may eventually decide to write a book, at which time she would be paid what the book is worth.

Any company that pays millions for a book like that will then exert enormous energy to recoup its investment by getting copies of that book into every corner of the earth, and have it promoted on as many television shows and news sites as humanly possible.

There is no evidence whatsoever that she is pursuing a book deal except one mangled quote that is being repeated all over without foundation. Nobody has heard from any publisher or any confirmation from Leah or from anyone close to Leah."

I can't wait, so far I've read:

Inside Scientology - Janet Reitman Going Clear - Lawrence Wright Beyond Belief - Jenna Miscavige Abuse at the Top - Amy Scobee A Piece of Blue Sky (updated edition) - Jon Atack

I am fascinated by this crazy shit!

R105, What happened to your story of the inside scoop on Naz and Tom Cruise's aborted "love" affair?

by Anonymousreply 11508/09/2013

[quote]According to former Scienos, Cruise totally freaked when Naz figured out that the "great mission" she was being groomed to accomplish was as his planned mate. Naz was not supposed to ask embarrassing questions.

In Going Clear, LW tells another version: that Naz somehow insulted DM by asking him to repeat something. Cruise got angry and said something like "you don't understand. There is LRH. There is COB. And then there is ME!". The church then broke up with Naz on TC's behalf.

(COB = DM)

The CO$ needs to be investigated.

religous persecution is alive and well. Leah should be ashamed of herself.

OMG. Leah Remini thinks the church of Scientology wants her to fail, so much so that she even told partner Tony Dovolani that she believes they're gunning for her to lose the competition.

And of course, they had a rebuttal. A Scientology spokesperson told ABC News, "We know this may come as a surprise to someone as self-absorbed as Ms. Remini, but we could care less if she wins or loses on Dancing With the Stars."

Um, yeah. Ok. Sure. Because usually when people get defensive, it's because they don't care at all. (Eye roll.)

One thing that always fascinated me about leah remini is that sometimes she looks "ordinary," like an ordinary attractive woman you'd see at a mall in NJ, and then other times she is stunningly sexual/attractive.

She has a strange charisma.
