The Church of Scientology has been under the scope for quite a while, and it has been said time and again that it holds deep secrets for some of its most famous Hollywood members (such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta), all while former members grow increasingly more outspoken, including Leah Remini's Scientology views.
Remini (who happens to be Jennifer Lopez's best friend) become famous in the 90s after a story arch in "Saved by the Bell" and later starring in "The King of Queens" opposite Kevin James, but she was actually raised in the religion created by L. Ron Hubbard, so Leah Remini's Scientology book should offer a broad perspective on being on the inside for most of her life.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Leah Remini's Scientology book will delve deeper into the so-called "indoctrination" of the faith followed by the likes of Elisabeth Moss and Juliette Lewis.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Leah Remini's Scientology memoir will be published under the title "Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology," and it will arrive in stores this fall, as the actress and television host recounts her experience growing up in the Church and then publicly leaving it two years ago, on 2013.
"Indoctrinated into the church as a child while living with her mother and sister in New York, Remini eventually moved to Los Angeles, where her dreams of becoming an actress and advancing Scientology's causes grew increasingly intertwined," reads part of the synopsis for Leah Remini's Scientology book, Salon.com reports. "But when she began to raise questions about some of the church's actions, she found herself a target, which led to her-and her family's-break from the church."
In the past, Remini has been outspoken about her decision to leave Scientology, speaking broadly about the subject on her reality show, "Leah Remini: It's All Relative."
Leah Remini's Scientology tell-all will be available in bookstores since November 3.
