When ABC was doing all of their hype surrounding Leah Remini’s interview in promotion of her upcoming book, apparently they tossed around Katie Holmes’ name a little too much for her liking.
On Friday morning’s episode of “Good Morning America”, ABC correspondent Dan Harris said that they had a “scathing insider account” of Leah’s time inside of the controversial church of Scientology. He also told Robin Roberts that they were “also gonna hear from Katie Holmes, the former wife of Tom Cruise – what she is now saying about Leah.”
During Leah’s interview, they showed off a short statement from Katie’s camp, saying, “I regret having upset Leah in the past and wish her only the best in the future.”
Katie’s rep said, “The reporter seemed very overzealous – don’t use [my client] to [get] numbers on your show. Katie is one hundred percent not appearing unless they magically superimposed her. They owe her an apology.”
The network later said, “Katie Holmes declined to be interviewed by ABC News for their reports on Leah Remini’s new memoir…but her representatives provided this statement on her behalf.”
