So Leah Remini, former sitcom actress for King of Queens, and also former Scientologist, has just debuted the trailer for her new A&E miniseries exposing Scientology.




Leah Remini is not holding back in her new Scientology documentary series.

In the A&E docuseries’ first trailer, which is hosted by the former King of Queens actress and longtime Scientology member, the church is accused of lies, abuse and sexual misconduct.

“My whole life I was a very dedicated Scientologist. I didn’t want to find out what I’d done was a lie,” Remini, who left the church in 2013, says in the Entertainment Tonight trailer. “Something inside of me was saying, ‘Get them out of this thing.’ ”


Leah Remini was introduced to Scientology by her family at a young age. She has witnessed and experienced, firsthand, the abusive practices and blatant human rights violations from a church who claims to advocate humanitarian causes whilst offering pseudoenlightenment all for a price.


Remini, who is executive producing the eight-part series, also speaks with former Scientology members about their experiences within the church. “I was 14 when I started in Scientology. I had a boss who was 35 years old and we had sex and the organization did not tell my mother, did not tell the police. They’re going to sweep it under the carpet and it’ll all be over with,” a former female church member recounts in the clip.


She has also spent nearly $3 Million of her own money on Scientology courses at the Celebrity Center in Los Angeles.


In a statement to PEOPLE, the Church of Scientology said, “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. Please see our full statement at www.scientologynews.org/leah-remini.”


Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath premieres Nov. 29 at 10 p.m. ET on A&E.

I have been to her house and have had the pleasure of meeting her in person.She is a nice person interestingly i had a family memeber who fought agaisnt the scientology rights to be tax exempt. He won the first court case but they later harassed the irs with lawsuits and won the right to be tax exempt aka becoming a real religion so they could be tax exempt.

I am all too familiar with the epic tale of how the church achieved its tax exempt status.

That's pretty cool that you've met Leah Remini before. Was she living near Los Angeles or Clearwater when you met her?

I remember Bill Clinton Signing the Church into Tax exemption.
Then it being part of the celebration part of the Millenial Bash. Ugh... I wore a silver tie to the event.😆

Makes you wonder what, if anything, the church had on good ole Billy boy. We just can't rule that out completely.

I met her while working she was filming the doc at the time in her house she has a movie room with a projector that overheats often likely the result of the company she deals with as they are aholes. i have been there four times and replace the lense twice with a lead tech. It exploded once and the other time it cracked and we put a tv in her gym where she has a picture of her and vince von and one other time when she had an issue with her daughters direct tv. Most of the time it was just her husband who is also a nice guy.

As for the location i couldnt tell you i never paid attention to the locations only to the task at hand. But it was a gated community and her house is huge.

Scientologists have always weirded me out. I lived a block over from the big blue building in Hollywood for a year and they'd have people on the sidewalk giving invites to big dinners on their little private street.

I had a few conversations with them and I got a weird "empty" feeling from the people I talked to. Something definitely seemed off.

Empty is definitely a good word to describe a Scientologist that you might encounter on the street.

Have you ever been e-metered? Iol do it and ask them how it works its just too much fun to try and not laugh
Press them about the specifics on how the e-meter can tell them about you without smiling or laughing. Ask them about circuits and how they work after your done.

Lol i do it to release stress. Basically when you touch both the nodes on the e-meter it creates a curcuit which allows the meter to pin on the other side as you create the current. They will tell you oh no you are stressed out and need to buy there science fiction book to learn how to not let aliens into your body. Sadly its interesting crazy talk to the point where you waiting for a camera crew to pop out like your on punked

Leah Remini: Scientologists become very hateful toward non-members


"I wrote my book, and thought I was done," the Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology author told the morning show host. "But I was watching what was happening to former members and former high-ranking clergy of the Church… and I'm not a big fan of bullies, so it is part of who I am and I was a fighter in the Church. This is what they taught me, so I'm going to continue my fight, but I'm on the right side of that fight now.”

"People are talking about their experiences of physical abuse, mental abuse," she continued, "and to be called a liar, to victimize victims is not OK with me."

Remini says she hopes her eight-part A&E series will give people a voice.



The King of Queens star also explained why she feels leaving the Church of Scientology is different than leaving any other church.

"… If you speak out, you're labeled an enemy to the Church and the Church has policies on how to deal with its enemies, and they go after them," she alleged. "It's in their own policies, and so they don't know any different, as I did when I was in the Church. So I understand, and I have compassion for it because you do become a person who's very hateful, and you're very judgmental towards anyone who isn't a Scientologist. And a critic of Scientology is dealt with in a very specific way, and that is unlike a real church."

Remini, who serves as an executive producer for the documentary series, said the reason people remain dedicated Scientologists can be attributed to what they’ve invested.

"This is a quarter-of-a-million-dollar proposition for just average parishioners," she explained. "The dedication it takes to be a Scientologist is a lot. And it's not easy to just walk away. Because most people say, why not just get up and leave? Well, you're leaving everything you've ever known. You're giving up your whole life because that is what it takes to be a Scientologist, and then you're going to be losing your family because most of your family and friends are Scientologists."

One of the most enjoyable types of schadenfreude is when Scientology gets kicked in the nuts.

I will be watching this documentary.

Believe me, I feel you. One of the things that keeps me going each day is my hope of seeing this scam taken down within my lifetime.

Many members on here don't get my obsession with Scientology.

It's because I live right around the corner from their HQ in Clearwater, FL and I've seen with my own eyes the devastation this unholy institution has wrought upon my community.

I have followed your posts on this vile group and I applaud your efforts to help expose what a bunch of thieving, manipulative, lying scumbags they are.
