She ain't backing down!

As you've surely seen by now, Leah Remini has become the queen of cable after giving A&E its best ratings in nearly two years thanks to her docuseries Scientology and the Aftermath.

Tuesday night marks the halfway point of the revolutionary reality show, but the actress-turned-activist has been plenty busy promoting the series already this week!

In fact, Leah actually stopped by Larry King Now right before the holidays over the weekend to chat about all things Scientology… where she promptly challenged the "church" to sue her for a second time!

After imploring the organization to sue her for slander on Dr. Oz earlier this month, it seems the King of Queens star is still plenty confident they'd have no case.

When Larry asked Leah if she had any response to the church's claims that her Aftermath participants are proven "liars," she called them on their bluff, saying:

UPDATE 6:24 P.M. EST: The Church of Scientology has released a statement in response: "Leah Remini has repeatedly disparaged and exploited her former faith for profit and attention through a series of failed publicity stunts, culminating in her reality TV show featuring a cast of admitted liars who to make a buck have been telling differing versions of the same false tales of abuse for years. Many of their allegations have been reviewed and discredited in courts of law. A&E's promotion of their agenda smacks of bigotry." For the Church's full response, see HERE.


If you've been watching Leah Remini's new docuseries Scientology and the Aftermath, you know there have been A TON of shocking reveals about the church.

But Tuesday night had the most surprising guest yet!

Last night's episode featured three former members of the Church of Scientology who shared stories about the group's leader David Miscavige. The most surprising of the guests though, was David's father, Ron Miscavige, who dished on his experiences with the Church and gave insight into his son's personality!

The first two former Scientologists Leah spoke to were Jeff Hawkins, who was involved in marketing found L. Ron Hubbard's promotional books in the '80s, and Tom Devocht, a member for 30 years.

Both men shared some disturbing details about their time with the organization as Hawkins revealed

Scientology 101.

With each passing episode of Scientology and the Aftermath, we continue to be surprised by just how far the grasp of Scientology can actually reach.

Luckily, Leah Remini is just about the perfect teacher… because she spent the third episode of her A&E docuseries explaining key words and other terms to viewers!

Tuesday night's episode introduced us to Mary — a "suppressive person" who managed to reach OT VIII (the highest level) before literally running away from the "Church."

But as heartbreaking as her story was, this newest hour was all about Leah and copresenter Mike Rinder teaching Scientology terminology to those of us who don't know much past Sea Org.

For starters, you probably know that Leah is now an SP after exiting the "religion" back in 2013, but you may not know that she was OT V on "The Bridge" before quitting. Basically, that means

On Sunday, the People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story alum told E! News he's simply "not interested" in watching the actress' attempt to expose the organization's controversial practices, saying:

"It's been nothing but helpful to me for 40 years, through all my losses of my mother, my girlfriend, my son. They never left my side, so why would I want buy into something that's not what I feel?"

In fact, the 62-year-old says he's "kind of" shocked Miz Remini even followed through with the A&E series.

However, the acclaimed actor isn't upset with Leah's unapologetic exposé, hinting that he feels the docuseries won't affect his ability to practice the religion:

"As long as I get to still do it and my family gets to do it. I'm happy."
