There are still so many reports trickling out now that Leah Remini has unveiled her new book “Troublemaker”.
Basically, we already know how she feels about Tom Cruise and the church of Scientology backing him in everything he does. In other interviews, she also talked about Kirstie Alley and John Travolta.
First, there is a silly story floating around that Tom invited a bunch of celebrities over to his home in Los Angeles and wanted them to play hide-and-seek together. She said, “I can’t play – I’m wearing Jimmy Choos.”
To that, Tom replied, “Well good. So you’re it, then.”
She said that she stayed put, but Tom ran off to hide in his nearly “three acres of secluded land.”
She told her husband Angelo Pagan, “Uh, Angelo, you’re going to go ahead and do this, because I’m not doing it. I’m not trying to play a f**king game of hide-and-seek in five-inch stilettos.”
She said, “You didn’t just say no to ‘Mr. Cruise’ even when it came to little things.”
On the topic of Kirstie Alley, she said that she understood the backlash. When Leah first came out swinging against the religion, Kirstie called her a “bigot.”
She said, “I understood it. I understood it because I know the policy. I understand that hiding behind, you know, religious bigotry is the route to go.”
Leah went on to say, “I know why she thinks she’s angry with me, and I know, again, hiding behind that veil is something that is per policy. They see me as an enemy. I respect her beliefs and that it works for her and you can also respect somebody who was in the church for 30-plus years who maybe had a different experience.”
On the subject of John Travolta, she had nothing but good things to say. She revealed, “John is such a sweet man! He loves the technology of Scientology. He believes in it. Here’s the problem with parishioners. I was going to my friends, going, ‘Hey this is going on. Let’s fix it. Let’s make it right’ and they would just turn their backs on me.”
She added, “They didn’t want to get pulled into a security check at their expense of, ‘Why are you going on the internet? Why are you listening to Leah?’ You couldn’t even get the parishioners to speak up for their own organization.”
