Star gives up church

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

LOS AN­GE­LES: Ac­tress Leah Rem­ini is ex­press­ing ap­pre­ci­a­tion to fans and oth­ers fol­low­ing word of her de­ci­sion to leave the Church of Scien­tol­ogy.

The for­mer King of Queens star made no men­tion of Scien­tol­ogy. But a per­son fa­mil­iar with Rem­ini’s de­ci­sion said the state­ment re­ferred to her break with the church.

Rem­ini has been a long- time mem­ber of the church. When she joined CBS’ day­time pro­gramme The Talk in 2010 as a co-host, she said she didn’t in­tend to make her re­li­gion part of the show.

“I love to make peo­ple laugh, en­ter­tain them. That other thing is some­thing that is not even part of my dis­cus­sion,” said Rem­ini.

She starred op­po­site Kevin James in the King of Queens that aired from 1998-2007. – Sapa-AP
