Meryl Streep better park her ass for this year’s Oscar race because Jennifer Lopez took off that scarecrow wig she wears as a cop on NBC and got back into her bread and butter role of rags-to-riches lady in a rom-com. If your afternoon has been missing a little bit of 2003, have no fear! The trailer for Second Act, a movie starring Jen and Leah Remini (oh, yeah, and Vanessa Hudgens), dropped earlier.
(“Well, that’s rich coming from you, Erika Christensen!” –documentaries critical of Scientology)
Nothing puts a bee in the bonnet of a Scientologist like media reports that it’s a bit eccentric or documentaries shining a light on how members are often fleeced of life savings or how the Scientology bathhouse only gets cleaned every other hour. Y’know, typical religious critique. Erika went on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast the other day to say she’s not here for anyone to mock her way of life unless you’ve read the full texts of L.

I don’t know if I’m more intimidated by Leah Remini’s brass balls or those terrifying stiletto talons she wears. Even though Leah’s still got her foot on Scientology’s neck with her Emmy award winning show Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, she’s taking a break between seasons to do a special focusing on Jehovah’s Witnesses.

I’m sure John Travolta and Tom Cruise are sitting in the gilded steam room today wondering how much time they have left in their Scientology palace where the TVs feature reruns of King Of Queens of Kevin James being dubbed to say “Suppressive witch!” each time Leah Remini appears.

Somebody out there is still watching Kevin Can Wait and Kevin James is still explaining what the heck happened to the wife. When the show ended its first season, it was announced that Kevin’s TV wife Donna (played by Erinn Hayes) was gonna meet her maker. When the show came back last month for season two, Donna was already sleeping with the fishes and Kevin had a new leading lady played by his former sitcom wife of 10 years, Leah Remini.
