Saying that Kirstie Alley and Leah Remini are not friends would be an understatement.
Since Remini left the Church of Scientology in 2013, she has not held back and has dropped one bombshell after another about prominent members, including Tom Cruise and Alley.
The actress and activist set out to expose the controversial church’s wild practices and spread chaos amongst the famous Scientologists.
Remini once surprised many by revealing Cruise has no love for fellow Scientologists John Travolta and Alley. “I had heard that Tom didn’t like them,” she said.
To support Remini’s claim, backers point out that Travolta and Alley were not invited to Cruise’s 2006 wedding to Katie Holmes.
A level-headed Remini also lashed out at Alley’s response to her allegations against the church. “I wasn’t hurt; I understood it. Because I know the policy. So I understand that hiding behind religious bigotry is the route to go,” she stated.
Remini revealed that the church caused her major pain and manipulated her. “That’s, again, very understandable because that is the policy,” the famous ex-Scientologist added. “You’re supposed to disconnect from anybody who’s antagonistic to what you’re doing in your life.”
In the past, the Look Who’s Talking star, who became a Scientologist in 1979, had appeared to follow protocols and let the church used its infamous tactics to deal with people like Remini.
No more, according to Tony Ortega from The Underground Bunker. “Leah is a very big problem for the church and for Kirstie. She just isn’t going away.” Ortega said. “Kristie has been given permission to attack [Leah’s claims].”
Recently, the outspoken advocate for President Donald Trump and the Church of Scientology bashed Remini for pulling a PR stunt after a fan asked: “How do you feel about the claims Leah Remini had about Shelly Miscavige? I watched a few documentaries, so I am no expert, but I have definitely thought a lot about Shelly since hearing of her disappearance in 2007. Is she OK?”
The Twitter user’s question was about an incident that took place in 2013. Remini filed a missing-person report about Scientology leader David Miscavige‘s “missing” wife, Shelly Miscavige, who has not been seen in public since 2007.
“This was done as a PR stunt to promote a book and show for LR,” Alley told the backer on Twitter. “To my knowledge, it took less than 2 hours to find SM alive and well. This was in 2013 yet wasn’t broadly publicly acknowledged by LR or her crew or the press. It was not done out of real concern.”
The King of Queens actress’ report was dismissed by the LAPD, yet Shelly has not been seen in public in the past several years.
Remini defended her decision to search for Shelly in an interview: “I filed a police report. I did not receive an actual — the person in charge of the case said that it was classified, which is not usual. They couldn’t give me any information, other than she was fine. I needed proof.”
Alley has slammed Remini in the past, calling her “repulsive” and “a bigot.”
