The Television Critics Awards were held last week and Leah Remini won an award for Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming for her show Scientology and the Aftermath, which is a scathing rebuke of Scientology. Also attending the awards ceremony was Elisabeth Moss. She was there as a nominee for her role in A Handmaid’s Tale. Well, when time came for Leah to accept her award, Elisabeth was all “Xenu, take me away!” and quit that bitch, because Elisabeth is all about that Thetan life.
Former Scientologist Leah Remini really made David Miscavige shriek at the top of his lungs by doing an anti-Scientology docu-series with other former members called Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. Everyone within earshot of David’s office better grab some earplugs, because The Hollywood Reporter confirmed today that A&E has renewed Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath for a second season.
Leah explained to THR that her show goes on because she still has words to say and truth to expose.
“The way the organization has responded without taking responsibility for what they do to people, I need to continue. It would be another [scenario] if they stopped trying to discredit everyone’s stories and said, ‘If you don’t like it, don’t be part of Scientology.’ I have a stage for people to listen. Until the day I no longer have this platform, I won’t be silent.”
Of course, it didn’t take long for Scientology to release a bitchy statement about Leah’s show renewal.
The second season of LR:SATA will have 10 hour-long episodes, and is already in pre-production. I’m not surprised that Leah’s show got a second season. So much shady shit has happened on the inside of Scientology’s walls, you could easily fill ten seasons. Leah herself says her email inbox is filled with former members who want to talk. So obviously this next season will have plenty of material. But just in case they have an extra 5 minutes to fill, maybe Leah could give us an update on Neighbor Sue and the suppressive dog she can’t quit.

I don’t get into weekday morning drinking, but when I woke up to the headline, “LAPD PROBING SCIENTOLOGY AND DANNY MASTERSON FOR MULTIPLE RAPES, COVER-UP,” I nearly skipped the coffee and went straight to the booze.
Tony Ortega’s The Underground Bunker reports that several female Scientologists have gone to the LAPD to accuse Danny Masterson of That ’70s Show (seen above looking like a villain rapist police detective from a 1970s cop movie) of rape. Tony writes that one of the alleged victims went to the police after anti-Scientology warrior queen Leah Remini urged them to. But apparently, the reports have gone nowhere.
One of the main things that made Leah Remini’s Thetan-infused brainwashed brain snap out of it and go into “Something in the barley water is fucked up” mode was when she got in trouble for casually asking about Shelly Miscavige, her friend and the wife of Scientology’s head queen David Miscavige. At the 2006 wedding of Scientology’s golden prince Tom Cruise and his then beard robot Katie Holmes, Leah noticed that Shelly wasn’t there and when she asked, she was told to shut her lips because she doesn’t have the Xenudamn rank to ask about other Scientologists. Leah and others never saw Shelly again.
When Leah quit the cult of crazy, she filed a missing persons report on Shelly with the LAPD. The LAPD eventually stamped “unfounded” on the missing persons report and declared that Shelly was not missing. That was in 2013 and Shelly has reportedly not be seen since then, until semi-recently.
I didn’t get to see the first part of Leah Remini’s takedown of Scientology on A&E last night, because I was busy catching up on the intellectual docuseries that chronicles the genuine trials and tribulations of real women in the south (aka The Real Housewives of Atlanta). It’s in my DVR and I want to watch it, but I have a feeling it just confirms what many of us have known for a long time: Scientology is as evil and deceitful as the filler air in a new bag of potato chips.
To promote her A&E docuseries, Leah did a really damn interesting Reddit AMA yesterday and unlike her old cult, she kept is 100% real. Leah said that Little Lord David Miscavige definitely knows that Scientology is a scam, she doesn’t really know what happened to Shelly Miscavige (she added “Ask the LAPD“), sexual abuse definitely exists in the cult and that Tom Cruise is their Jesus!
Next to “sanity” and shittily-made cookie dough, Leah Remini has become one of Scientology’s biggest rivals ever since she dropped her E-meter cans for the last time and happily accepted her SP badge for leaving the Cult of L. Ro. Leah is following up her memoir, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, with an A&E docuseries, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, which starts airing tomorrow.
The extra sharp thorn in Scientology’s puffy ass ring was on Today this morning to promote the docuseries and she talked a little about her lawyer demanding cash from Scientology. Leah’s lawyer recently hit Scientology with a legal letter, demanding $1.5 million for allegedly trying to ruin her reputation and fucking with her emotions, money and docuseries. Scientology tried to kill Leah’s docuseries by farting out threatening letters to A&E’s executives and in those letters, they called her a spoiled has-been diva, which strangely enough, is what those gossipy boys in the Scientology bathhouse call Kirstie Alley. Leah says that she’s probably not going to get any money from Scientology, but it’s not about the coins for her. It’s about fighting for the victims.
