Kirstie Alley vs. Leah Remini
Kirstie Alley verbally attacked her one-time fellow Scientologist Leah Remini with the following statement, “I think the most repulsive thing a person can do is attack another person's faith.”
Alley launched the barrage on Howard Stern's radio show Sirius XM, slam dunking the King of Queens star Remini who publicly quit the controversial church last summer.
Alley said, “When you decide to blanket statement that Scientology is evil, you are my enemy.”
Two weeks ago, Remini said on ABC’s The View that there was a church policy called “disconnecting” that informed former friends from the church to turn their backs on anyone who has left.
She claimed, “I don’t get to see my god kids, friends that we’ve known for 30, 40 years. I think the one that people can relate to is shunning, because I don’t think everybody knows that’s what is required when you leave. Friends and family members, mothers and daughters–they can no longer have relationships with me and my family.”
But Alley and Scientology have denied Remini's claims insisting there is no such policy, “I have hundreds of friends and people that I know who have come into Scientology and left Scientology. It's not true that you cannot. You're not shunned. You're not chased. All that stuff's (blank).”
Alley did not seem to be interested in amending her relationship with Remini in the near future.
Stern asked, "You blocked her on Twitter?"
Alley said, “I have blocked her on Twitter because she's a bigot.”
Scientology denies Remini's claims that they harassed her or encouraged people to disconnect from her.
