This is going to be must-watch TV!
In the exclusive interview with journalist Dan Harris — which will air this coming Friday, October 30 — Remini reveals some hard truths that the church surely will not like, such as her view on Cruise’s ties tot he very top of the organization:
“Being critical of Tom Cruise is being critical of Scientology itself├óΓé¼┬ª you are evil.”
She also tells the heartbreaking story of how family members and others are pushed away from you the longer you stay in the church:
“As time goes on, you start to lose touch with the real world. The mindset becomes ├óΓé¼╦£us against them.’ The decision to leave is you are giving up everything you have ever known and everything you have worked for your whole life. I feel that people need to understand this has been my whole life. I want them to understand how it happens.”
All this is coming about after Remini’s memoir — Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology — was released.
