Jada Pinkett Smith & Leah Remini Make Amends After Public Feud

Last year, Leah Remini and Jada Pinkett Smith had an incident on Twitter and it seems that they’ve put the past behind them and made amends.

If you don’t know, last year, Leah claimed that Jada was a Scientologist, and Jada later fired back in her own series on tweets.

Jada explained to People that they had a sit down and it was all recorded for her Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk. “What was really emotional about it was realizing that there was two broken little girls in us that were abandoned by their fathers and turned into fighters who clashed,” Jada said.

“You have to treat people with kindness because you don’t know what they’re going through. When she told me her story, I had so much more compassion and it reiterated the necessity to just be gentle and kind because we’re all f****** devastated,” Jada added. “It was really beautiful and she reached out to me. She was much more bigger than me in that way. It was nice to reconnect and release ourselves from all that nonsense that doesn’t matter.”

Leah Remini Claims Katie Holmes Could Lose Custody of Suri For Speaking to Her

Leah Remini is on the cover of LaPalme Magazine‘s new issue, where she’s wearing a dress designed by Lavanya Coodly.

Here’s what the Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath star had to share with the mag…

On Katie Holmes and Nicole Kidman and why they haven’t spoken out about Scientology: “I don’t consider myself a champion. The people who speak on the show are champions. But I keep wondering – why haven’t Katie Holmes or Nicole Kidman spoken out? I assume they were forced to sign prohibitive documents. Trust me, Katie‘s not allowed to have a meal with me, and we used to be close friends. She could lose custody of Suri. It’s quite sick, really.” Note: Katie‘s ex husband Tom Cruise, the father of Suri, is a Scientologist. Leah used to be a Scientologist.

Creative Director Derek Warburton (who is featured in the photo shoot), on Leah:Leah Remini is a modern day version of Robinhood, but instead of stealing from the rich to give to the poor she is fighting against oppression and fighting for freedom. America sees Leah as the girl next door and I wanted to show another side of her. We all know her from being on our TV screens as the star of King of Queens and I wanted to show the world that she has huge range and can be as glamorous as any of her contemporaries. I had the most incredible experience with her. Throughout the day she would touch my face and say thank you, that is real appreciation, love and she showed how grateful she was for all of our assets. I cherish a survivor and that is what Leah Remini is. From building herself into an internationally known actress and an American sweetheart into a tough fighter against religious and cult oppression. I have nothing but respect for her journey.”

On if she thought she would be a myth-buster: “Certainly not!…I thought comedy would be my life.”

FYI: Leah‘s makeup is from Stare Cosmetics. She was photographed by Filbert Kung for LaPalme Magazine.

Leah Remini to Play Conservative Lesbian in New Fox Pilot

Leah Remini will be playing the role of a conservative lesbian in a Fox pilot about a Middle America family.

The pilot, from writers Rob McElhenney and Rob Rosell (the guys behind It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), is about “a woman, her ex-husband and her new wife, who all work together to raise a family in Middle America,” according to THR.

Leah‘s character Jean fits “the stereotype of a typical conservative” in many ways, but she also leads a progressive lifestyle and is married to a woman, Betty. Her ex-husband, Richie, lives in the garage, and they all raise the former couple’s two sons together.

The hope is to get a mid-season pickup at Fox.
