Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath premieres Nov. 29 on A&E
Ex-Scientologist Leah Remini is reading some of the comments that the church has made about her since she officially left in 2013.
In an exclusive sneak peek at A&E’s upcoming new docu-series, the actress reads aloud “just some of the things” that the Church of Scientology officially released to the press about Remini.
“A program about our religion and hosted by Ms. Remini is doomed to be a cheap reality TV show by a has been actress now a decade removed from the peak of her career,” Remini, 46, reads in the clip. “Ms. Remini, this bitter ex-Scientologist, she needs to move on with her life instead of pathetically exploiting her former religion, her former friends and other celebrities for money.”
Without skipping a beat, the actress halts her reading and calls out the church on their comments made about her.
“When you stop f—-ing with people’s lives and families, I’ll stop too,” she states. “How does it feel?”
In a statement to PEOPLE, the Church of Scientology has said about Remini, “As we said before, desperate for attention with an acting career stuck in a nearly decade-long tailspin, Leah Remini needs to move on with her life. Instead, she seeks publicity by maliciously spreading lies about the Church using the same handful of bitter zealots who were kicked out years ago for chronic dishonesty and corruption and whose false claims the Church refuted years ago, including through judicial decisions.
