We applaud her bravery, but that doesn't mean we aren't a little scared for her!
Reports surfaced yesterday that Leah Remini had cut ties with the Church of Scientology, and now the actress is speaking out about her decision to leave the religion.
"I wish to share my sincere and heartfelt appreciation for the overwhelming positive response I have received from the media, my colleagues, and from fans around the world. I am truly grateful and thankful for all your support," she said in a statement to Us Weekly.
The former Talk co-host was a longtime member of the Church of Scientology, but when she dared to question leader David Miscavige and his practices, she was subjected to years of "interrogations" and "thought modifications", according to Page Six.
The tipping point came when the brunette beauty asked about the whereabouts of Miscavige's wife Shelly, who hasn't been seen in public since 2007, at Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' wedding.
Maybe Leah and Katie should compare notes now that they've both successfully executed their exit from the controversial religion!
