But after receiving an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Informational Series or Special, Leah will likely find herself mingling with fellow nominees.
"Elisabeth Moss believes that she can't talk to me", Remini said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. The victim gets punished for 'pulling it in, ' which is a Scientology term that means you did something that you're not telling the church about - and that's why you received the abuse. "She believes that I'm an antisocial personality - because I've spoken out against Scientology".
Following her nine-year run on CBS' "The King of Queens", Remini's profile dipped a with just a few failed sitcoms and a run on "The Talk". "And me knowing that, I wouldn't put her in the awkward position". "I don't hold anything against Elisabeth Moss other than she's continuing to support a group that is abusive and destroying families", she says.
The second season of "Scientology and the Aftermath" - which Remini stars in and executive produces - begins August 15 at 9 p.m. ET on A&E. Oh, and Leah isn't tip toeing around any controversial topics as she went into great detail about how the faith handles child molesters. Remini hopes to gather enough evidence to warrant a federal investigation into the corrupt religion.
"Leah Remini's false attacks on the Church of Scientology, in an effort to drum up publicity for her equally false "docuseries, ' is truly despicable", a statement said". It means so much to those who were and are courageous enough to speak out against Scientology.
Since 2013, Remini has made plenty of inflammatory comments about the religion that have further removed her from to the members of her former community.
'Scientologist Elisabeth Moss left the room while Leah Remini accepted her TCA award. During an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show a year ago, the Kevin Can Wait star alleged that she had "been followed", but said her story "pales in comparison to what happened to other people" and "how people are bullied into silence".
Thank you so much to the Television Critics Association for nominating our show.
Leah Remini said that after the success of the first season of Aftermath, she was contacted by people in the church who were inspired to leave.
It sounds like Season 2 of Aftermath will feature even darker, more horrifying stories from former Scientologists: Remini says that they'll be focusing on the above-mentioned "abusive practices of Scientology - sexual abuse and physical abuse".
