Leah Remini is forging ahead with a new season of her Emmy-winning show, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, despite continued attacks for her investigative work into the secretive religion. Remini was a member of the Church of Scientology for 34 years before exiting in 2013.
“I will not let s–t go,” Remini says of her efforts to shine a light on the controversial organization’s secrets. “If I find some untruth or a half truth or an omitted truth, I f–king find it.”
Remini has faced continued backlash for her efforts, which she blames on a smear campaign originating inside the organization at the highest levels.
“It hurts, but she’s strong,” says a source close to the actress. “She hasn’t lost her focus.”
