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. Now, it SEEMS like Leah was simply a much bigger draw for audiences than Erinn was, so they did what they had to do to clear the way for her return. But according to the New York Daily News, Kevin (real Kevin, not fake Kevin) says that’s not the case.
Last night, the viewers of CBS’ Kevin Can Wait finally got to see how the show killed off Kevin James’ TV wife Donna (played by Erinn Hayes). If you thought that killing off a character so that Leah Remini could swoop in and recreate the chemistry of The King of Queens was cold, put on a warm jacket. Because the season premiere of Kevin Can Wait dropped it a few degrees below freezing.
Every morning, Leah Remini applies a fresh coat of La Mer facial moisturizer while a minion reads off the latest direct deposit royalty payment from her King Of Queens fortune. After she sends the assistant off, she lowers the lights, ignites a few candles, and then proceeds to chant the name of every one of her Scientologist ex-friends and accomplices that she can’t wait to take down on A&E since that’s how a vengeful bitch pulls an Arya Start in Tinseltown these days. While I can’t confirm Leah’s skincare regiment, I would almost bet money on the Game Of Thrones ritual since, when she’s not replacing actresses on Memaw network CBS, she’s all about calling out members past and present of Hollywood’s most sacred bathhouse: the Church of Scientology.
While J Harvey brought the tea this weekend that Leah outed Jada Pinkett-Smith as a Scientologist, Jada went on Twitter this morning to say she dabbles in a lot of religions, but that doesn’t mean you should label her by whatever curtains she slips through. Continue reading
Oh, everybody knows that! I was hoping for someone finally confirming that the Pinkett-Smiths are vying with Travolta and his wife for the “Longest-Running Lavender Marriage in Hollywood“ title! Yes, I need several hobbies. Scientology’s Public Enemy #33, Leah Remini, told The Daily Beast that Jada Pinkett-Smith has been worshipping space volcanoes, or whatever, for “a long time.” Continue reading
A bunch of people won Creative Arts Emmys this weekend. Special shout outs to my pretend BFF RuPaul on his second (!!!) win, my pretend hometown homescratch W. Kamau Bell, and the only Press Secretary I acknowledge, Melissa McCarthy, for guest actress on SNL. Other big winners included HBO and Netflix for a gang on shows, drama queen Ryan Murphy, and those meddling kids of Stranger Things.
But the most delicious win goes to Leah Remini, who continues to be the stiletto fingernail in the side of the Church of Scientology. And if Leah’s win is any indication, she’s not going to stop jabbing them with it anytime soon.
Admittedly, The King of Xenu does sound a lot snappier than The King of Queens.
Everyone knows that Scientology is kinda strange, and, no, I don’t mean just because they use terms like “thetan,” “dianetics,” and “Tom Cruise is very much still relevant.” People magazine has featured Leah Remini on the cover this week, and you know she went ahead and dragged Scientology across hot coals like it was a Tony Robbins seminar!
