Well this just got a lot more interesting!
Leah Remini‘s highly anticipated 20/20 interview about Scientology airs tonight and we’re pretty intrigued by what she’s going to say.
We’ve already seen a preview the briefly showed the Kings of Queens actress dishing on leaving Scientology and how it affects children.
But now we have another BIG reason to tune in — Katie Holmes!
ABC News’ Dan Harris — who was the person who conducted the interview with Remini — revealed today on Good Morning America that Holmes will appear on the 20/20 special.
Harris told Robin Roberts:
“You’re also going to hear from Katie Holmes, the former wife of Tom Cruise. [And] what she is now saying about Leah.”
This is very interesting because the Dawson’s Creek actress was of course married to perhaps the most famous Scientologist of all, Tom Cruise.
In a 2013 deposition that surfaced after the couple’s divorce, it was found that Cruise admitted that his former wife had said one of the reasons she filed for divorce was “to protect Suri [their daughter] from Scientology.”
Remini also claimed in the GMA segment that she was written up for an incident that involved Cruise and Holmes. She recalled:
“He was like, forcibly kissing Katie. And I said, ‘Hey, get a freaking room.’ And uh, well, I was written up for that.”
We definitely want to check out the interview to see if Katie is going to speak out about the church of Scientology and her ex — or just address Remini and her comments.
Leah’s interview is of course in preparation for her memoir Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, which comes out next Tuesday.
