VIDEO: Leah Remini Tells Church of Scientology to File Lawsuit

Leah Remini was a guest on Larry King Now over the weekend, where she defended herself against Scientology’s threats from her A&E docuseries Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.

“The church calls your reality show ‘a scripted, rehearsed, acted and dramatized work of fiction featuring liars who have, for a profit, been telling differing versions of the same false tales of abuse for years, many reviewed and discredited in courts of law…They’re saying you [are] liars,” Larry King said.

“Then they should sue us. It’s as simple as that. They say this on every outlet they can. They have said that about every single person who’s spoken out, and not one lawsuit has been brought to anybody,” she continued. “This is not a group that is scared of a lawsuit. They’re a litigious group. If that were true, they would simply sue us. And I welcome them to do that.”

Leah Remini Remembers Co-Star Alan Thicke, Calls Him 'Such a Talent & Good Guy'

Hollywood is still mourning the loss of Growing Pains star Alan Thicke.

Leah Remini has now released a statement remembering her co-star. Leah and Alan recently filmed their upcoming comedy The Clapper over the summer.

“I, like many, was a huge fan of Alan and of Growing Pains,” Leah told People magazine. “In my career, I have had the luck to occasionally run in the same circles as him and he was always the guy you wanted to be around. This past July, I had the pleasure of working with Alan on The Clapper. Alan was someone that always knew your name and made you feel at home when you were in his company – even if he had just met you. He made everyone feel just a little bit cooler by being around. My heart goes out to his wife Tanya and his children Brennan, Robin and Carter.”

Leah also followed up her statement with a post on Instagram of herself and Alan along with The Clapper co-stars Ed Helms, Mickey Gooch Jr., and Tracy Morgan.

A release date for The Clapper has not been announced yet.

Leah Remini Opens Up About Her Fight Against Scientology

Leah Remini is continuing to speak out about her experience with Scientology and fight for the victims of the church.

The 46-year-old King of Queens actress has a new A&E docuseries that goes into the aftermath of her decision to leave Scientology three years ago.

“I just felt that I had a responsibility to help out where I could,” Leah said on The Today Show. “I’m not a big fan of bullies. It is part of who I am and I was a fighter in the Church, this is what they taught me, and so I’m going to continue my fight. But I’m on the right side of that fight now. I’m sending a message that I’m not going to sit back and allow it to go on. … If you speak out you are labeled an enemy of the Church. [The] Church has policies on how to deal with their enemies and they go after them.”

“For me, it pales in comparison to what former high-ranking executives and parishioners had to deal with,” Leah added. “It’s not easy to walk away… You are leaving everything you know. You are giving up your whole life because that is what it takes to be a Scientologist, and then you are going to be losing your family because most of your family and friends are Scientologists.”

You can watch Leah‘s docuseries, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, on A&E on Tuesday nights at 10/9c.

VIDEO: Leah Remini Reveals Why She's Fighting Back Against Scientology

Leah Remini joins Ellen DeGeneres for a discussion about leaving the Church of Scientology in a new interview on The Ellen Show.

“The Church does have all your secrets from when you were a child, but that isn’t the reason why people don’t leave the Church. People don’t leave the Church because they actually believe what they’re doing is good. It’s very hard for me to attack something that I believed in, and I believed in it wholeheartedly my whole life. It’s a difficult position to be in,” Leah explained.

“They claim that they have the technology to get you to the highest enlightenment of that spiritual side of you and to be the best part of you,” Leah continued. “There’s a lot of things that are good in Scientology, because I wouldn’t have been in it. And that’s the thing: A lot of people trivialize it: ‘Oh, it’s Xenu and it’s a volcano and it’s jumping on couches and acting crazy.’ These people are victims. We’ve been victimized. We believed in something because it starts out very normal. I could be a better Leah, I could be a better mother, I could be a better sister, I could be a better friend—not to you, because I’ve been fantastic—but we all want those things. What Scientology offers is a bigger game. You’re part of an elite group saving the planet.”

“But again, my story pales in comparison to what happened to other people, how people are bullied into silence. We don’t have $3 billion to protect ourselves, right? So, what I have is I’m an actress, and I’m able to speak, and I’m able to give a voice to people who might not have an Ellen to go on. For that, I feel lucky and I feel blessed. That’s kind of what my path is right now,” Leah continued.

Be sure to watch Leah‘s A&E docu-series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.
