I didn’t think she had it in her to go all the way but damn, Leah Remini done gone and straight up MURDERED a Scientologist. Can you believe it? Well, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Leah may not actually have held the knife in her hand, but she’s still 100% to blame for a stabbing that occurred outside of the Scientology headquarters near Sydney, Australia last week. But rather than get the authorities (further) involved by making a formal accusation, CO$ sent A&E president Paul Buccieri a strongly worded letter accusing her and her show Scientology and the Aftermath of inciting the murder with her words. Like she’s Brooklyn’s own lady Charlie Manson.
Casey Kasem’s been dead for nearly 5 years, but his family is still fighting over who is responsible for his death. Casey’s children from his first marriage, Julie, Mike and Kerri Kasem, filed a lawsuit against Casey’s widow Jean Kasem, accusing her of elder abuse. Jean recently alleged that the kids conspired to kill Casey because the power of L. Ron Hubbard compelled them to kill him so they could give all his money to The Church of Scientology. Normally, whenever the COS is involved, I automatically assume whatever bonkers fuckery is at play is because of them. But in this case, Jean Kasem is has proven herself to be as batshit as old L. Ron himself.
We all know by now that Tom Cruise is the crown prince of Scientology, and Scientology whistleblower Leah Remini once described him as “diabolical.” Leah is talking about him again and now she’s making him sound like Scientology’s version of Tony Soprano.
Say what you will about Nicole Kidman’s taste in men and wigs (and let’s face it, beards), but I don’t think anybody would claim she’s a bad mom. In an interview with the Australian magazine with the delightfully shady title “Who?” (question mark my addition), Nicole finally discussed her relationship with her two eldest children with Tom Cruise; Connor Cruise (23) and Isabella Cruise (25). It is with much shame and consternation that I report I got touched in the feels (which I thought had all turned into a globule of See’s Peanut Brittle, which if you’ve never tried it, is totally worth exchanging for celebrity empathy) reading about Nicole’s thoughts on her children’s decision to go the way of L. Ron Hubbard.
The most iconic moment in TV history to me isn’t when we found out who shot J.R. It isn’t even the finale of M.A.S.H.or Friends. It’s when Tyra Banks still had her talk show and decided inviting Naomi Campbell on to discuss their feud would be a good idea. Rather than give in to Ty-Ty, Naomi spent most of the time scowzing (the scowling yin to Tyra’s smizing yang) and wondering what assistant she would be throwing her Blackberry at once the cameras stopped. Fast forward a few years, and Jada Pinkett Smith has basically turned that idea into an entire show.
Jada’s Red Table Talk is a show she co-hosts with her mother and daughter, and it’s a TMI extravaganza! From Will Smith dropping by to air out their marriage’s dirty laundry in front of their child and his mother-in-law to Gabrielle Union plopping down in a seat to discuss a 17-year feud none of us knew was a thing, the show has surprisingly been better than the community access TV-on-a-Flip-cam I was expecting. The new season is about to drop, and Jada is wadding balls deep into the Scientology pool to make nice with former foe and ex-Scientologist Leah Remini.
As everyone and their Thetans know, Anti-Scientology Warrior Queen Leah Remini has made a second career out of calling out the head bitches of the Cult of L. Ron Hubbard for the way Scientologists have been treated while in the group of L. Ro worshipers and after leaving it. Leah has really gone in on the Jesus of Scientology, Tom Cruise, and called him “diabolical,” said he’s untouchable in Scientology, and that he could easily bring down the Crazy Kingdom of E-Meters if he wanted to (which I’m sure he doesn’t since he’s probably addicted to the feeling of a thousand tongues up his Scientolohole). And now Leah’s saying that he could also rip Suri Cruise out of Katie Holmes‘ arms for talking to her.
