As everyone knows by now, Leah Remini is on 20/20 tonight to promote her new memoir Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology and she has some shit to say about Scientology’s reigning prince Tom Cruise. Yesterday, I posted about how several Scientologists, including Katie Holmes, reportedly wrote Leah Remini up because they didn’t like the way she acted at Scientology’s royal (ly crazy) wedding of the century. In a clip from the 20/20 interview that aired on Good Morning America today, Leah says that Tommy Girl is Scientology’s untouchable (I hear the boys in the Scientology bath house laughing at that) golden child and you can’t even joke around with him without getting in trouble.
Leah tells 20/20’s Dan Harris that she was asked by Scientology to teach Tommy salsa lessons and when she showed up to his mansion, he was there with his then-girlfriend Katie Holmes and two high-ranking Scientology officials. Leah says that Tommy forcibly kissed Katie throughout the night and when she joked about it, her ass got written up. via UsWeekly
“He was like, forcibly kissing Katie,” Remini recalled to Harris. “And I said, ‘Hey, get a freaking room.’ And uh, well, I was written up for that.”
If I was Leah, I’d be the one who needed to get a room, specifically a bathroom so I could barf after being exposed to that fakeness. But really, Leah’s joke probably didn’t go over well, because she didn’t say it in Tommy’s language (aka incoherent gibberish). Tommy didn’t understand the joke, but he would’ve totally understood it if she said, “Hey, get a freaking room, in case there are no gay people there? Heh.”
And Dan Harris said on GMA this morning that during the 20/20 interview, we will hear from Katie Holmes and “what she is now saying about Leah.”
I’m not going to pop an extra bag of popcorn just yet. I figured that Katie Holmes agreed not to talk about Scientology and Tommy in exchange for full custody of Suri Cruise and a quick divorce. My guess is that Katie isn’t going to say much at all. Her statement is probably going to read like this:
“I enjoyed Leah Remini in the television show Living Dolls. I have no comment on Scientology. Oh no, oh no, is that a UFO hovering above us?! I didn’t say anything! The roof is opening! I didn’t say shit, you hear me! RUN, SURI, RUN!!!“
UPDATE: ABC just pushed out the one-line statement that Katie Holmes gave to 20/20 after saying “HELL NO” to their request for an interview. Her statement is pretty much a whole lot of nothing.
“I regret having upset Leah in the past and wish her only the best in the future.”
