Leah Remini Called A Bigot by Kirstie AlleyBy: Kimberly Ripley - December 6, 2013
Leah Remini was bashed by former fellow Scientologist Kirstie Alley, who called this season’s Dancing With the Stars contestant and former King of Queens star a bigot. The two have engaged in a bit of a war of words since Remini left the Church of Scientology and spoke out about its practices several times.
Alley appeared on The Howard Stern Show on Wednesday and called out Leah Remini on comments she made recently while a guest on The View.
Remini explained to Barbara Walters that she faced many repercussions for having left the organization, including severing ties with many people she loved.
“You’re not shunned, you’re not chased. All that’s just (expletive),” Alley said to Stern on Wednesday. “I want everyone to know I have hundreds of friends and people that I know that have come into Scientology and left Scientology. When you are generalizing and when your goal is to malign and to say things about an entire group … when you decide to blanket statement that Scientology is evil, you are my enemy.”
“She’s a bigot,” Alley added.

Alley doesn’t seem to be getting much support from Twitter followers.
It will be interesting to learn if the name calling ends on Kirstie Alley’s behalf. She admitted she hadn’t even seen Leah Remini for years, so it seems strange she’d take such a hard stance on the subject of Leah speaking her mind about the Church of Scientology.
Do you think Leah Remnini is telling the truth about the Church of Scientology and Kirstie Alley is trying to save face for the organization or is Leah Remini bashing where bashing isn’t due? If Twitter serves as any kind of scorecard, it seems more people are siding with Leah Remini.
