Leah Remini Talks Crazy Tom Cruise in New Scientology Tell-All?
Going into the release of Leah Remini's new book exposing the Church of Scientology, Troublemaker, much was made of the King of Queens actress' portrayal of Tom Cruise, and the 45-year-old reality TV show veteran didn't fail to deliver. According to the latest gossip news updates, the Dancing with the Stars alum not only called out the Risky Business actor's god like status in the church but his insane antics as well. In one portion of her book, the former Talk co-host recalls being summoned to Cruise's mansion along with a slew of other A-listers for a surprise game of hide and go seek.
In her new book, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, Leah Remini makes a point of laying out all the ways she feels Tom Cruise's hypocrisy is destroying the Church of Scientology, but the former sitcom star also goes out of her way to make sure that people understand it's not just the Top Gun actor's religious beliefs that set his apart from most people in a crowd.
In one segment of her new book, Remini recalls being called out to Tom's mega-mansion with fellow celebs like Jade Picket only to be told upon arrival that Cruise really arrange the get together because he desperately wanted to play hide and go seek with everyone (via NewsWeek):
"At first I thought he was joking, but no, he literally wanted to play hide-and-seek with a bunch of grown-ups in what was probably close to a 7,000-square-foot house on almost three full acres of secluded land."
Sticking to their usual MO, the Church of Scientology has chosen to redirect Leah's criticisms of the organization and its most venerated members with personal attacks on Remini, who reportedly gave the CoS as much as $5 million during her 30-years as a parishioner (via USA Today):
"Leah Remini has become what she once declared she never wanted to be known as: 'this bitter ex-Scientologist.
"She needs to move on with her life instead of pathetically exploiting her former religion, her former friends and other celebrities for money and attention to appear relevant again."
While Remini also spent a portion of her book talking about being fired from The Talk after being a part of the series premiere season, Leah told Howard Stern that she certainly wasn't bitter over the way things worked out (via People):
"The point is, most smart people in this business shut their mouth...If I wanted to be in this kind of show I need to shut my mouth and do what my bosses tell me to do. I can't do that.
"That [was] maybe not a good fit in that way."
What do you think about Tom Cruise and the Church of Scientology?
Is Leah Remini to try to embarrass an organization that she feels has been ruined from the inside out?
Or, are the Scientologists correct when the say that Remini's just turing against her old way of life to gain popularity with her new friends.
