Well so much for this!
Now, though, Katie has spoken — through her publicist — and there’s just not much she is going to be sharing with ABC viewers.
In fact, she only provided one sentence to reporters:
“I regret having upset Leah in the past, and wish her only the best in the future.”
In fact, Holmes wanted to dissociate herself so strongly from the 20/20 special that her publicist issued another statement making it very clear she was not involved with the special in any way:
“In response to an email sent from the producers or fact-checkers from 20/20 asking a plethora of questions, we supplied no answers and instead gave only a one-sentence statement in response. Katie is not making an appearance on the special, nor is she discussing Scientology, or her former marriage, and this quote was provided through her publicist. For any outlet to suggest otherwise is misleading; I would think Leah and the book stand on their own, and don’t need to trade off Katie Holmes for people to tune in.”
Wow. That sounds pretty definitive.
Remini’s full 20/20 special with journalist Dan Harris will air tonight at 10 p.m. EST on ABC. Guess we’ll all know a lot more tonight!
