Leah Remini will be heading down the dark trail of reality TV soon. Back-to-back premiere episodes of her new show, called Leah Remini: It’s All Relative, is all about…her relatives.
The episodes will feature a dinner party thrown by Leah Remini and her husband, Angelo, for the friends and family that stuck with them after their desertion and following denouncement of the Church of Scientology.
Remini famously split from the church in 2013 after 30 years of commitment to it. She later said that “everything the church taught me was a lie.”
The split came shortly after Leah Remini began suspecting something was wrong when leader David Miscavige’s wife, Shelly Miscavige, disappeared. Leah Remini was good friends with Shelly, but when she continued to ask about Shelly’s whereabouts, she was reprimanded.
The new show will be mainly focused on Leah Remini’s relationship with her family and how they are now reconnecting.
“We’re learning new ways to reconnect with each other, so it really has brought us closer together,” Remini said of the filming. “We’re stronger and we’re having so much fun together and this is something that the family loves to do.”
From the way she describes her family’s acceptance of being filmed for the show, Leah Remini: It’s All Relative could turn out to be quite the hilarious undertaking.
“My mother thinks she’s a star anyway. She thinks she’s pretty genius and from this, she keeps saying things like, ‘I think I’m gonna get my own sitcom deal,’ she thinks she’s that hysterical,” Remini said. “My daughter, she doesn’t love it. She’s in negotiations right now with TLC. She’s considering continuing if she gets a Chanel purse. She has a whole list of things … so I hope that works out.”
It seems like no one will be safe from the glare of cameras around Leah Remini’s household.
“Angelo’s on it, my stepfather, my little sister, my nanny, my housekeeper, everybody [is involved],” she continued. “It’s crazy.”
It certainly does sound crazy. We shall see if it lives up to the expectations we have put on modern reality TV or not!
