Wow. Who knew there was so much to say about Scientology??
Obviously we're kidding because Leah Remini wrote a whole book on it!
The former Scientologist and Oscar-winning director Paul Haggis decided to chat with each other and share their own experiences with the church at her Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology book signing on Wednesday.
Like for instance, how the King Of Queens starlet was the only person who continued to stay in touch when he left the church, despite still being a Scientology member. He revealed:
"You did not have to do that. We were not close friends."
Leah understands that now, especially since she opened up about her own experience with it, confessing

We still can't believe some of this stuff!
Leah Remini's tell-all book, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood And Scientology, about her accounts of being part of the Church of Scientology just dropped on Tuesday.
Leading up to the controversial book, Leah had done quite a bit of press for it, including an interview with 20/20.
Not only did she reveal to the host that she's given the Church of Scientology "millions" of dollars, but she talked a little bit about her relationship with John Travolta and dished that Tom Cruise's probable relationship with Suri is based on the church's policy.
"Well, she's a baby. She's a child. She doesn't have a choice. No, but the policy of the church is that you can not be connected with someone who has committed a suppressive act. Which I have. Katie (Holmes) has. For the church policy, you have to shun that particular person."
Ch-ch-check out the rest of the interview (below) and hear Remini answer a caller's question about having regrets about Scientology!

"Here's the thing, I'm from Brooklyn. I might be very naive, I know I've been in California. I'm there more time now, but I still have that inside of me, so I'm good. I'm not worried about nothing. What I'm worried about is breaking a nail."
She sure is brave about the whole thing!
But why write the book at all? Leah says it's just something she has to do:

Just when we thought it couldn't get anymore shocking!
Leah Remini is on a mission to expose the Church of Scientology. Not only did the King of Queens actress drop her tell-all book yesterday titled Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, but she has sat down for interviews on 20/20, as well as The View to go a little more in depth as to the terrible things she's witnessed!
There has already been quite a bit of information that has come out from Remini's book, and since Tom Cruise is such a prominent member in the church, the actress has shared information about the Mission Impossible actor flipping out, as well as his past relationships.
Well now we've got some new disturbing details regarding Cruise's relationship with actress Nazanin Boniadi!
Naznin is an Iranian-born actress who joined the Church of Scientology when she was 17 years old after her mother joined. Leah remembers becoming friends with Boniadi in 2003, but she recalls:

Talk about a truth bomb!
On Tuesday, Leah Remini sat down with the ladies of The View to chat a bit about her new tell-all book Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology. However, it seems that the King of Queens actress didn't only write damning things about the controversial religion but about her mother and husband too.
Don't panic, she had a good reason!
From Miz Remini's book, Joy Behar read:
"I am selfish and self-centered … have physically threatened people … my husband is a serial cheater and my mother was a slut."
Whoa! Still, the reality TV star explained that she wrote those things down so that the Church of Scientology couldn't use her past or her loved ones' pasts as ammunition.
