Leah Remini has opened up about her friendship with Katie Holmes in a new and revealing interview about the Church of Scientology.
Remini is the co-host of Scientology and the Aftermath, and did a new interview for LaPalme magazine’s fall edition. In the interview, she talked about her experiences on her show and told some stories about the Church of Scientology.
She said, “I thought comedy would be my life. I don’t consider myself a champion. The people who speak on the show are champions. But I keep wondering – why haven’t Katie Holmes or Nicole Kidman spoken out? I assume they were forced to sign prohibitive documents.”
Holmes was married to famous Scientologist Tom Cruise for six years from 2006 to 2012. The former couple also share daughter Suri Cruise together. Kidman and Cruise were married before that from 1990 to 2001.
Remini went on to give more information about Holmes, with whom she formerly had a close friendship. She said, “Trust me, Katie’s not allowed to have a meal with me, and we used to be close friends. She could lose custody of Suri. It’s quite sick, really.”
She also said that due to her show, members of the Church of Scientology frequently harass the people that come onto her show, explaining, “Especially me. Members of the Church go to my mother’s restaurant, confront my little sister, and my step kids in San Francisco, trying to intimidate us. These abusive scare tactics are what they call a religion!”
