BWW Leah Remini vs Scientology on 20/20: NOW We Find Shelly!!

So here is the long-awaited tell all (off?) of the Church of Scientology by Leah Remini. People have been waiting for this since she first announced the breaking of her 30 year history with it and Tom Cruise.


Katie Holmes was SUPPOSED to address it, but the lovely Reno tells me that statement has been walked back to a single sentence Rolling live at 8!

Hopefully, we discuss this particular pitcher rye cheer: the skinny body plus lookitmybebehbelleh pose is confusing me.


I feel it would be disingenuous to not mention how I feel about Leah Remini and her credibility. I dislike almost everything about her, her manner of speaking, what she actually says, her opinions on almost everything. So. It is a testament to how curious I am about CO$ that when Reno suggested it tonight, I was like, eh, sure! Good idea! Lessee

    2. That being said, I love Leah. I think she's a bad ass, and her and Jlo being too loud and obnoxious at Tommy's wedding makes my heart warm.

    3. Different strokes! Ver important to have differing opinions!

    1. And she kinda did, right? In the end?

      Delete
    2. She did. But it's either the paranoia, the history or the publicity tour that makes it every word out of her mouth

      Delete
    3. Goodness you don't like her

      Delete
    4. I don't know, honestly. I tend to distrust people that present themselves as blameless but I WANT to like her for her honesty. I get it, I've been involved with secretive organizations before; they get in your head and the paranoia level is insane. So. Maybe she just needs more time. Sometimes it can take longer than people would expect to get over stuff, and yes, she's promoting a book, etc, why shouldn't she? I just think there might be a healthy dose of self-interest there.

    1. These people that join just all seem broken to me. Empty shells that have a need to fufull

    2. Yes. Like most cults (and even religions if I am being totally honest with myself). Provides a structure of stability to people that are looking for answers.

      Delete
  42. I think things are more complex than presented; there is no doubt that the Church of Scientology is a notoriously private organization with some really troubling practices. I just think human beings are also complex and can't buy Leah as a savior against Scientology. Too broad a stroke. Im sure the truth lies somewhere in there

    1. She's the first true celebrity to leave and speak against it. I think she's brave and ballsy. She may be a loud mouth and what have you, but I think she attributes a wonderful start to the,destruction of celebrity Scio booshit.

    2. But what makes you think she's shady as opposec to Scientology?

      Delete
    3. Oh no, don't misunderstand me; i think Scientology is shady AF!!!#!!!##!!! I just think they're also right about her. I think it's got to do with self interest

    4. That's what I mean by more complex

      Delete
    5. Oh gotcha. Agree to disagree! Holla! :)

      Delete
    6. I just can't give Scio one tiny credit. That's all.

      Delete
    7. Well, if they WEREN'T shady AF, she wouldn't be so disruptive, so there's that. I give her credit for speaking her mind
