Leah Remini is putting it all out there.
After opening up about Scientology’s most infamous member, Tom Cruise, in her new tell-all, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, her recent interviews prove no one is safe — not even her own loved ones!
During an appearance on The View, host Joy Behar read an excerpt that stated, “I am selfish and self-centered… My husband is a serial cheater and my mother was a slut.”

The Kings of Queens actress, 45, explained that she made the decision to include not only her own flaws, but also those of her loved ones — so they were out there before the Church had the chance to use the deeply personal information against her.
“Well, I know the policy of the Church when someone speaks out publicly against them. I know how they deal with people like me,” she said. “So they would take something out of context or in my confessions and [put] that out on the streets.”

While the actress was once worried that her husband, Angelo Pagan, and her mother, Vicki Marshall, would shun her after she decided to leave the church, she was proven wrong when they followed her lead and left Scientology as well.
Her husband-of-12 years has since said he is “so proud” of his wife’s decision to speak out.
