no title

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!

The last two weeks, we've seen interviews with David Miscavige's father and heard a FRIGHTENING story about the Church forcing abortions.

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

Church Of Scientology Furious At 'Hypocritical' A&E For Canceling Generation KKK But Not Leah Remini's Aftermath!

no title

The aftermath has officially begun.

A&E currently has a hit on its hands thanks to Leah Remini's Scientology and the Aftermath, but their failed followup Generation KKK is still causing them problems… even from beyond the grave!

The docuseries about the Ku Klux Klan was canceled on Saturday — just a day after it was renamed to the more palatable (and explanatory) Escaping the KKK: A Documentary Series Exposing Hate in America.

But even stopping the show from airing is getting them in trouble — because the Church of Scientology is now using the cancellation to call out A&E's hypocrisy!

In a letter sent to the network obtained by TMZ on Wednesday, Scientology lawyer Gary Soter questioned why Leah's show is allowed to air despite breaking the same rules that got KKK cancelled, saying:

Leah Remini Challenges The Church Of Scientology AGAIN To Sue Her — Find Out Why She's Sure They Won't!

no title

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:

Leah Remini Gives Viewers A Crash Course In Scientology For Aftermath's Most Educational Episode Yet!

no title

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

Leah Remini's Scientology Series Claims Church Spied On Former Members… & The Religion Responds!

no title

Hallelujah…

The Church of Scientology is tired of Leah Remini and is continuing to shoot down claims made in her docuseries Scientology and the Aftermath!

Last week, Leah's new A&E show dissected and criticized the controversial cult religion — and this week, we got more scary details as she interviewed former senior member Mike Rinder about his life after he left the organization!

During a sit down, Rinder — who left the Church in 2007 — revealed he once did an interview with the St. Petersburg Times, in which he spoke out against the group. As a result, Mike became a "public enemy" of the Church saying:

no title

God bless you, Andy Cohen.

Only on a show as fabulous as Watch What Happens Live! could a super serious conversation about mental health issues devolve into gay gossip and still come across lighthearted.

Luckily, that's exactly what happened on Thursday night when Leah Remini and 50 Cent stopped by the Bravo clubhouse!

As you've surely seen yourself, news about Kanye West's release from the hospital broke just a few days before their episode taped — which meant he was just about the hottest topic on tap.

That's why when Andy asked his guests whether or not they believed the Famous rapper was faking his breakdown for insurance money purposes, Fiddy defended his fellow musician, saying:

Hell hath no fury like a Remini scorned.

It's been over three years since Leah Remini decided to leave the Church of Scientology… but her battle against her bullies is only just getting started.

That's because after giving A&E its best debut since 2014 with the premiere of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath on Tuesday, the suppressive person is about to share even more of her story on The Dr. Oz Show!

In fact, in a sneak peek of Thursday's all-new episode, Leah actually challenges the religion/cult to sue her!

Apparently, the self-proclaimed Troublemaker is well-versed in legal jargon and is completely confident they'd have no case, telling the doctor:
