“The decision to leave is your giving up everything you’ve worked for your whole life,” Remini, 45, said on 20/20. “I feel that people need to understand this has been my whole life.”
“They were trying to extract me,” Remini said of the wedding on 20/20. “I can only assume because they wanted to make Jennifer a Scientologist. Maybe I was barring that road for them.”
Holmes said in a statement provided to PEOPLE by her publicist, “I regret having upset Leah in the past, and wish her only the best in the future.”
A Scientology spokesperson denounced Remini’s claims about the wedding, telling ABC News: “Every claim Miss Remini has made is not only untrue but ridiculous and stupid.”
Remini said on 20/20 that she wants to enlighten for others what it’s like to be inside “the mindset” of Scientology.
“As time goes on, you start to lose touch with the real world,” she said in the interview. “The mindset becomes us against them.”
