Leah Remini Was Part of The Church of Scientology

In 2015, she wrote a book called "Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology." People liked it a lot, and it became the number one bestseller on "The New York Times" book list.
The next year, Leah started hosting a TV show called "Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath." This show won a big TV award called the Primetime Emmy in 2017 because it gave a lot of information.
In 2023, Remini took the Church of Scientology to court. She said they had been bothering her, following her, and doing bad things to her for 10 years, trying to destroy her life and work.
