Tom Cruise Scientology: Leah Remini Helped After Kirstie Alley Feud? [UPDATE]

By Jonathan Lambert on Mar 31, 2014 09:12 PM EDT

There has been another announcement about Scientology, the religion made famous by Tom Cruise. Turns out that Leah Remini got a little help from one of her celebrity friends after leaving the church and feuding with Kirstie Alley.

J-lo better watch her back. The singing reality judge recently appeared on Ellen, and responded to Ellen's comments about Leah Remini depending on Lopez to get through leaving the religion Remini called home for so long, via Reality TV World:

"We are best friends. Yeah, it was a tough moment for her. You know what I mean? It's all she knew her whole life," Lopez said. "When you're raised a certain way and around people for a long time -- whatever that is -- it's going to be hard."

This latest report comes after Kirstie appeared on Howard Stern, where she had some not-so-nice things to say about 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."

Though Stern played along, on a previous show he praised Remini for leaving the secretive religion. The shock jock told his audience:

"You shouldn't even care if someone leaves your religion, but Scientologists care so much. Anyway, I hope Leah comes on. I'd like to talk to her about this. It says she was tortured because she asked where the leader's wife is. They always have this kind of f---ed up stuff going on. And if you are sitting there smugly saying your religion is better than Scientology, you need to take a look at it. Your religion isn't that much more advanced than Scientology."
