Re: Leah Remini video clips

Dear Mr. Bentley:

To add further perspective on Leah Remini’s latest disingenuous claims about the Church of Scientology, we are enclosing video excerpts from statements and interviews taped by her over approximately 10 years. There are numerous others not included, but these are most on point based on your questions.

In these videos she calls the Church her “second home,” lauds its humanitarian efforts and details how much the Church and, specifically, Celebrity Center have done for her personally and for her career.

Ms. Remini enthusiastically volunteered to tape each and every one of these clips and, in fact, was eager to do so. All are property of the Church, and you have permission to air them across all platforms as part of this program to give a more balanced picture.

As has been expressed by former friends, everything changed in 2012 as Ms. Remini’s career began sagging, especially after her very public and bitter firing from The Talk. It was at that point the Church became the target of her wrath, part of a long pattern of blaming others for her problems and not taking responsibility for her own actions.

The enclosed clips include:

  • Ms. Remini speaking during Church events about the contributions Scientology has made to her life.
  • Answers and outtakes provided to a BBC interviewer in 2007 separately taped by the Church. Topics include leaving the Church and anti-Scientologists.

Regards,
