COB RTC David Miscavige

Leah Remini on ABC 20/20


TroublemakerLeah Remini’s new book Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology  is  available here.

“The outspoken actress, talk show host, and reality television star offers up a no-holds-barred memoir, including an eye-opening insider account of her tumultuous and heart-wrenching thirty-year-plus association with the Church of Scientology.”

“Leah Remini has never been the type to hold her tongue. That willingness to speak her mind, stand her ground, and rattle the occasional cage has enabled this tough-talking girl from Brooklyn to forge an enduring and successful career in Hollywood. But being a troublemaker has come at a cost.”

“That was never more evident than in 2013, when Remini loudly and publicly broke with the Church of Scientology. Now, in this frank, funny, poignant memoir, the former King of Queens star opens up about that experience for the first time, revealing the in-depth details of her painful split with the church and its controversial practices.”

In related matters, Captain David Miscavige is using depositions in the Garcia case in a flanking attempt to impeach Alex Gibney’s sources for the HBO documentary.

Below: An interesting exchange between Michael Leonard Tilse and Panopea Abrupta on January 16, 2015 over at Tony Ortega’s blog discusses this matter. Captain Miscavige is trying for a twofer here: Impeach Gibney’s sources while impeaching witnesses in the Garcia case. As usual, Miscavige is too clever by half as he is opening the door to other legal problems arising from his actions.
