Star gives up church
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
