Tom Cruise Scientology: Leah Remini New Show, Kirstie Alley Feud Wanes

Time for another update in the world of Scientology, the religion made famous by Tom Cruise's epic couch-jumping. Former member Leah Remini is busy promoting her new show, as her feud with current member Kirstie Alley seems to have dissipated.

Leah Remini is officially back on TV, and this time she won't even have to dance and beg for votes. The former King of Queens star, who made global headlines when she separated from her longtime religion last year, will be appearing on TLC.

As part of TLC's new, human-sized-adult lineup, cameras will follow around Leah Remini and her family. And Leah, for one, couldn't be happier, issuing a statement that reads:

"I'm so happy to be opening my home to TLC and to be sharing my family with you. We are blessed to be given this opportunity to work together as a family. However, beware - In these last 13 weeks of working on the show, my mother and stepfather already feel they are the true talent and breakouts of the show and expect to be offered sitcoms."

And you can bet that Leah and the fam will be dishing about Scientologists, considering Leah brought it up while she was on a show that focuses on just dancing.

Of course, there may be one person who is actually rooting for Leah to fail, and that person is none other than Kirstie Alley. Kirstie doesn't hold back when it comes to letting her grudges be known and Leah Remini is no different.

When Kirstie appeared on Howard Stern last year, the actress explained why she thinks Leah Remini is a bigot:

"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."
