Leah Remini Says Elizabeth Moss Isn’t ‘Allowed’ to Talk to Her via Scientology Rules
The second season of Leah Remini’s A&E show on Scientology, Aftermath, is starting with fire as the actor is calling for a federal investigation into the religion.
Leah is currently joining the cast of Kevin Can Wait, which films on the east cost, which means she’d have to leave Los Angeles. Meanwhile, she will continue to produce her A&E show, both of which will air at the same time.
On her Aftermath subjects: “They don’t get paid to do the show,” she said to The Hollywood Reporter. “The only thing they get is a hate website put out on them by Scientology. They get paid internet ads against them. Their families turn against them. Any award I get is for them.”
“We’ve heard from people who were inside Scientology, who told me, ‘I watched your show. I went on the internet. I decided to leave. I am fighting for my children after watching your show,’ ” says Remini. “We get tons of those. And it’s those moments that you go, ‘OK — we’re doing something.'”
She continued: “Elisabeth Moss believes that she can’t talk to me. There’s a thing in Scientology called ‘acceptable truth.’ It means you only say what’s acceptable to the public. But she believes that I’m an antisocial personality — because I’ve spoken out against Scientology. So she isn’t allowed to talk to me. And me knowing that, I wouldn’t put her in the awkward position.”
