“Ha! Consider it payback for making me sit through your weird-ass wedding ceremony“…is what I imagine Leah Remini is thinking to herself in the picture above.
So, Stacey Carosi’s Scientology tea-spill happened last night on 20/20. I know, raise your hand if you too thought that David Miscavige would try to prevent it from airing by summoning the evil spirit of L. Ron Hubbard (aka holding three rotting teeth while playing an audio copy of Dianetics backwards), who would then haul ghost ass to the control room at ABC and replace Leah’s 20/20 interview with a John Travolta-heavy episode of Welcome Back, Kotter. Just me? Okay.
We already know that Leah had shit to say about Tom Cruise’s Scientology wedding to Katie Holmes, and we already know that Katie Holmes had shit to say about Leah’s shit. But now Page Six is saying that Katie wants an apology from ABC for making it seem like Katie had any part in that mess. Katie’s rep is accusing Dan Harris of using Katie Holmes to promoting Leah’s 20/20 interview on GMA yesterday morning. Dan had originally said that viewers would “also hear from Katie Holmes“, and obviously that never happened. See: That statement. But still, Katie is waiting for a “So Sowwy” muffin basket from ABC. Hopefully it doesn’t get intercepted by the surveillance team David Miscavige assigned to watch Katie’s home first.
But back to Leah’s interview. Leah released more satisfying farts regarding Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ dream wedding. According to Leah (via NY Daily News), Tom sang to Katie at their wedding. No, he didn’t bust out a re-written rendition of Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me” called “Now We Own You.” Leah says he crooned “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling.” And I’m sure Katie was like “Um…is it too late to tell him I never had it?“. Leah says she joked during the reception that it was an “interesting choice” to sing to his bride.
Leah doesn’t say who she made the joke to, but let’s face it, it was probably Jennifer Lopez. That is to say, when they were allowed to be near each other, of course. Leah claims Scientology’s higher ups asked her to invite JLo and Marc Anthony to Tom’s wedding (“on Tom’s behalf”). Once they got there, Leah says those shady bitches tried to keep her away from JLo so they could work their recruitment game her. Leah says:
“They were trying to extract me. I can only assume because they wanted to make Jennifer a Scientologist. Maybe I was barring that road for them.”
Maybe it’s because I watch too many zit-popping videos, but the use of the word “extract” made me picture someone with a pair of tweezers trying to dig Leah out of JLo’s back.
In the event you missed Leah’s 20/20 interview, here’s the juicier part of it:
Of course, Scientology’s reigning loudmouth queen (and the current president of the WE H8 LEAH club) Kirstie Alley responded to Leah’s 20/20 interview by retweeted this message from fellow Scientologist Jenna Elfman.

“I’m not interested in sensationalism.” That’s a good one to use the next time someone tries to confront me with the truth. “No bitch, I didn’t eat that whole box of Pop-Tarts. Stop counting those empty wrappers I tried to hide between the couch cushions – I’m not interested in your sensationalism!“
