“King of Queens” star Leah Remini is making a dramatic break from the Church of Scientology, a source said, after being subjected to years of “interrogations” and “thought modification” for questioning leader David Miscavige’s rule."

Uh oh! Nobody leaves COS! Nobody!

She'll be lucky to make it out alive.

Good. I hope she makes people aware of the brain washing that the church does.

People are successfully leaving now. She's far too public to kill.
Can anyone tell me how the line has been?

I bet John Travolta and Kirstie Alley are being called in to stage an intervention. Wouldn't that make a great reality show?

Then Season 2 could be about Madonna leaving Kabbalah. Can't you see it? Gwyneth saying "Oh Maddy, that string around your wrists looked terribly frightful." Then they would have Sandra Bernhard "I told that beyotch not to waste her money."

I wish anyone luck who tries to f@#k with Leah. They are in for a rude awakening.

She'll be fine. She's a badass and a hell of a good comedic actress.I like her.

What does being born in Brooklyn have to do with anything?

She's so "bad ass" yet she chose to become part of a cult that any street wise mother fuquer out there can see is bogus. Her street smarts/cred went out the window when she chose to align herself with those brain washers.

Carlos, lots of people in Brooklyn make wrong decisions, get in with the wrong crowd. But that doesn't mean that they can easily be ****ed with when they finally say "enough of this bull****."

Of course the same goes for people anywhere, but the fact is that Rimini appears to be a tough cookie who has, finally, come to her senses about her religion. The expression "she's from Brooklyn" is a fun way of expressing this about Rimini. Lots of tough minded people are drawn to religions which screw with their heads and some of them, at some point, become lapsed religionists. When they do, they might have the wearwithall to withstand anything the cult or orthodoxy they have been yoked with puts on them.

My money's on Rimini!

It's pretty complicated, though. I believe she was born and raised in Scientology. The thing about the group is that people spend years learning and progressing and paying and paying through a series of levels with arcane languages all their own that really have nothing to do with the real world. Their success they have is mastering skills that are utterly inapplicable in the outside world.

Many of these lifers finally get a shock when their own minds see something that doesn't make sense in their worldview, which has trained them since birth to view people scaling the heights of Scientology's levels as not only the definition of success, but "helping" the world. Then they see some sort of abuse and either shut up about it, or say something and risk severe punishment.

So what they often end up doing is criticizing the current leadership and leaving, still believing that the "tech" (the billions of pages of stuff written and recorded of L Ron Hubbard) is helpful, and pure, and can save the world. That's something that is very difficult for people brought up in it to give up because, really, the "tech" is the only thing they have learned in their lives.
Can anyone tell me how the line has been?

My wife had a total crush on her. She survived that bizarro ousting from The Talk. She'll handle this.

I look forward to seeing what she does next. She's very talented, and now that she has freed herself from this cult (no easy feat), I wish her the best for the future.

The Daily Mail here in the UK has picked up this story with a slightly different slant.

...and more today.

Is this story still being covered in the US or have Scientology succeeded in burying it?

I hope she lives to tell the tale. And I'll bet there are plenty of "slander" lawsuits when the book comes out.

I hope she lives to tell the tale, b12b. I wonder if this is just a warning salvo from her because she must be taking flak from Scientology.

This might help. The Mail gets most of its stories from the Tony Ortega's blog although sometimes they misread what is posted by a LOT. So here's the source for the Mail's sources, undiluted.

You can read all about who has been supportive of Remini and who hasn't.
