Celebs React To Donald Trump's Inauguration -- See Who's Optimistic & Who Thinks It's Depressing AF!
Donald Trump is officially the 45th President of the United States.
Leah Remini has been dropping a sh*t ton of shocking details in her docuseries Scientology and the Aftermath — and this Q&A installment, co-hosted by fellow former member and Church executive Mike Rinder, is no different.
In Tuesday's episode called Ask Me Anything, Part 2, the 46-year-old actress answered a series of fan-submitted questions on social media alongside special guests: Going Clear author Lawrence Wright, lawyer Ray Jeffrey, and cult behavior and deprogramming expert Steve Hassan.
At one point, the panel turned to former Scientology exec Debbie Cook, who claimed she had to commit acts like LICKING THE BATHROOM floor while serving time in "the hole" after she allegedly violated a non-disclosure agreement. OMG!
Cook was sued by the church and transported to a double-trailer complex for allegedly sending out classified information via a group email. The lawsuit was later settled in 2012.
Also in the episode, Miz Remini opened up about her exchange with her The King Of Queens costar Kevin James about the religion.
At the time, Leah said the devout Catholic actor wanted nothing to do with Scientology:
We would LOVE Leah Remini to be our mom!
The King Of Queens diva stars in Crackle's upcoming original film Mad Families about three families who compete for a camping spot during a busy Fourth of July weekend.
In the following clip, Miz Remini plays McKinney's stepmother — aka "fake mom" — but Leah's character isn't feeling that title. That's why she comes up with fun alternatives!
You can stream the entire film on January 12. In the meantime, ch-ch-check out the EXCLUSIVE clip (above)!
Over the past couple months, Leah Remini's docuseries, Scientology and the Aftermath has dropped a TON of shocking details regarding members — but the finale was heavily focused on a scary accusation against Leah!
Obviously the Church of Scientology has NOT been happy with the King of Queens star as they've sent several letters condemning the actress' efforts to expose the truth behind the religion. Well, the situation is SO BAD that the Church has accused Miz Remini of "inciting hate crimes." SRSLY?!
Apparently, the organization is claiming the 46-year-old
Every week, Leah Remini somehow finds a way to shock us on her docuseries Scientology and the Aftermath, and Tuesday night's episode was no different!
But last night, we got to hear the heartbreaking story of a man whose relationship with his twin, Collin, was absolutely DESTROYED because of the church's practice of "disconnection" in which people who leave the group are cut off.
Aaron Smith-Levin, a 29-year member of the organization, sat down with the former King of Queens star despite his wife refusing to do so. Aaron's wife's parents are still Scientologists who refuse to see their grandkids — WHO LIVE ACROSS THE STREET! So it's pretty understandable the mother wouldn't want to damage the already strained relationship.
In speaking with Leah, Smith-Levin admitted that when he was younger and learned the
cult religious group became tax-exempt and "won the war" against the IRS, he got involved with them to try and become an auditor.
The former Scientologist explained parishioners are hooked up to a type of lie detector and auditors interrogate them! YIKES!
What's WILD is Aaron dished that he and Collin would
One of the most shocking shows week after week is easily Leah Remini's Scientology and the Aftermath, and this week there was no shortage of jaw dropping claims!
In previous episodes, we've heard various alleged former members of the Church of Scientology speak out against the
cult organization regarding their abuse and how they spy on people. But if this week's episode is 100% true, Scientology also makes women get abortions!
The King of Queens star and her cohost Mike Rinder, who is also a former Scientologist, sat down with Marc and Claire Henley who once belonged to the Sea Organization.
During Leah's chat with the couple, Marc, who "oversaw all aspects of the Scientology's propaganda machine" revealed the religion exaggerates statistics it tells members and people they're trying to recruit! Mr. Henley dished:
