Scientologist Kirstie Alley Feuds with Monty Python and Leah Remini, New Will Smith Show

Scientologist Kirstie Alley finds herself in yet another feud over her controversial religion. This time it's not Leah Remini, but, instead, Monty Python's Eric Idle. Will Smith, who many have accused of being a Scientologist, is also in the news for announcing a new show on HBO.

It's widely known that Alley has trouble keeping her mouth shut, even between bites. So, it comes as no surprise that she is in the middle of yet another celebrity feud.

It may, however, surprise you with whom she's feuding-none other than Monty Python's own Eric Idle. It all started on Twitter, when Idle warned fans of an unofficial Monty Python dating site:

"The so-called Monty Python dating site is run by a Scientologist. Naturally the Pythons do not support this. You should beware."

Kirstie, as unaware as always, went on the attack:

@EricIdle I can't quite believe what I read on your posts..Never expected a religious slur from a great guy like you...whom I admire so much.

Never missing the opportunity for a punch line, Eric responded:

"@kirstiealley Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition... I'm getting out of here. The Scientologists are on my ass. Not worth the time."

Kirstie's not just going after Eric Idle, in recent months she's also bashed ex-Scientologist Leah Remini. In an interview with Howard Stern, Alley explained her anger with Remini:

"First of all, I just want everyone to know I have hundreds of friends who have come into Scientology and left Scientology. You're not shunned, you're not chased. All that stuff's bulls-t. When you're generalizing and when your goal is to malign and to say things about an entire group...when you decide to blanket statement that Scientology is evil, you are my enemy. I have blocked her on Twitter. Because she is a bigot. If someone was out there (attacking your religion) would they be your friend? They wouldn't be mine."

Will Smith may not be an official Scientologist, but that doesn't stop him from donating millions to their cause. He may soon have a lot more to donate if his new show takes off.

According to reports Will and Jay Z are in the works to bring a comedy show to HBO.
