In a new clip from her reality show, “Leah Remini: It’s All Relative,” Leah Remini talks about facing the repercussions of leaving the Church of Scientology. Leah left the Church of Scientology in 2013.

Former star of the show “King of the Queens,” Leah Remini made headlines in 2013 when she had publicly broken away from the Church of Scientology. In a new clip from her Reality Show on TLC, “Leah Remini: It’s all relative,” Remini revealed what it’s like to publicly break away from the Church of Scientology. The video shows Remini talking about what it was like to pull out of the Church in 2013, People Magazine reported on Thursday.

Remini claimed that the Church of Scientology forces the person leaving the church to break off all their connections with other people in the church. This is especially true for people who, either accidentally or deliberately, make a “public stink” about the Church the way she did when she left.

“If you make a stink in the public world, they call you a suppressive person,” she revealed in the clip from TLC’s show, “Leah Remini: It’s all Relative.” She elaborated that this means that the church has put a stamp on you that says you are bad. “They then go to all your family and friends and say you have to disconnect from this suppressive person,” she claimed in the video.

The Church of Scientology refused to comment on Remini’s departure in 2013, but was very vocal about her recent outbursts. The spokesperson for the Church said that they weren’t surprised that someone as self-absorbed as Leah Remini continues to “rewrite history” and exploit her former religion just to get ratings for her cable show. They said that this was her pathetic attempt to seem relevant again, but she failed badly at it.

Season two of “Leah Remini: It’s All Relative” airs Wednesday on TLC.
