Leah Remini Scientology Memoir Has Tom Cruise Upset?
In her new memoir, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, Dancing with the Stars cast favorite Leah Remini blames Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes point blank for her ultimately leaving the church she called home for more than 30-years. According to the latest gossip news updates, CoS' most famous acolyte has taken notice of his former friend's scathing tell-all and is very upset. Word has it that the Mission Impossible superstar is particularly furious over the Remini's revealing several embarrassing details from his wedding to Holmes.
In addition to calling out what she felt was wrong about the Church of Scientology as a religious organization, Leah Remini's new memoir takes direct aim at Tom Cruise and his entourage's bizarre behavior.
During one segment of her book, Troublemaker, Leah recalls investigating the reason why Suri was crying all through Tom and Katie's rehearsal dinner, only to find Cruise's inner circle berating the baby in the bathroom (via Huffington Post):
"I found three women, including Tom's sister and his assistant, standing over the baby, who was lying on the tile floor.
"I didn't know if they were changing her diaper or what, but the three women were looking at her like they thought she was L. Ron Hubbard incarnate.
"Rather than talking to her in a soothing voice, they kept saying, 'Suri! Suri!' in a tone that sounded like they were telling an adult to get her sh*t together."
Although, Cruise will likely never address the way he's portrayed in Remini's memoir, a CoS' insider told Us Weekly that behind-the-scenes Tom is absolutely seething:
"He thinks it's a major betrayal.
"Leah is what the church calls a 'suppressive person,' so she's evil in his mind. He wipes the memory of any SP out of his life."
For the Scientologist's part, they have done their best to discredit Leah as an attention seeking slanderer, even before Troublemaker was released:
"Sadly, bitterness and anger are common threads through Ms. Remini's life.
"Ms. Remini is now joined at the hip with this collection of deadbeats, admitted liars, self-admitted perjurers, wife beaters and worse."
One supposed insider in the latest November 23, issue of OK! Magazine seems to lean towards the CoS' reasoning that Remini's new tell-all is nothing more than a salacious attempt to regain a bit of her ever-fleeting King of Queens sitcom fame:
"The main reason she's airing all this dirty laundry is that she's under a lot of financial stress.
"It wasn't an easy decision for her to make, but her career isn't exactly thriving...at the end of the day this is the only way she could provide a more secure life for her family."
What do you think about Leah Remini and the Church of Scientology?
Is OK!'s insider likely someone that is sympathetic to CoS, if not a member, who is just continuing the church's smear campaign?
Or, are the Scientologists correct in pointing out that Leah never seemed to have anything negative to say about CoS, until her career started to lag?
