CBS is killing off Erinn Hayes' character on Kevin Can Wait to make room for Leah Remini!

When asked about Kevin James' leading lady's exit in season two at the summer press tour on Tuesday, Senior Exec VP of Programming Thom Sherman said the character of Donna "will have passed away" when the show returns.

CBS's entertainment president Kelly Kahl later added that the death "will be addressed tastefully" and "with dignity and respect":

"When everybody collectively saw how Leah and Kevin worked together in those last couple of episodes, there was just an undeniable spark there. Kevin, the studio [Sony] and the network wanted to keep that magic and chemistry going forward."

What a bummer for Erinn! Good luck, bb!

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:

Big pharma. Little brain.

Martin Shkreli has been public enemy No. 1 for about a year now, but we didn't think it was possible for him to sink any lower than when he criminally raised the price of AIDS drug, Daraprim.

However, he proved us wrong on Monday by attempting to troll the Internet's favorite comedian — Patton Oswalt.

Interestingly enough, this feud doesn't just simply exist between Patton and Martin… because Donald Trump, Stephen Colbert, and even Kevin James are all involved as well!

It all started at around 3 p.m. EST on Labor Day when the comedian began making fun of the trending hashtag, #TrumpCantSwim, saying:
