Katie Holmes Responds as Leah Remini Blasts Scientology: ‘I Wish Her Only the …

Holmes to break Scientology silence.

Cruise, along with others like John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Kirstie Alley, Laura Prepon, Jenna Elfman and Australian Kate Ceberano are some of the more high profile members of the church. “You’re also going to hear from Katie Holmes, the former wife of Tom Cruise. [And] what she is now saying about Leah,” US ABC’s Dan Harris teased viewers.

Since her 2012 divorce from Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes has stayed relatively mum about her marriage to the movie star and her experience with Scientology.In a new clip from Leah Remini’s upcoming interview with ABC News, the former Scientologist recounts a time when high-ranking Scientology officers allegedly wrote her up for telling Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to “get a freaking room” after seeing Cruise “forcibly kissing Katie.” “Church members regularly write what are called knowledge reports on one another for breaking rules,” said Remini, who’s promoting a memoir titled Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology. “You can assume that if you say something critical to the church, you will be written up.

Remini, who starred in the US sitcom The King of Queens, penned a book about the notoriously secretive church and revealed that she left after growing suspicious of its leader, David Miscavige. But in a news segment on Leah Remini’s defection from the controversial organization that airs Friday, Holmes will address Remini’s recent derogatory claims about Scientology, which include recollections about her interactions with Holmes and Cruise. It’s what the group does to regulate itself.” Watch the full clip below, and see the interview — which will include Holmes responding to Remini’s comments — when it airs Friday at 10 p.m.

On Friday morning, ABC News’ Dan Harris, who interviewed Remini for the 20/20 segment, appeared on Good Morning America to tease Holmes’s participation in the special. This is a reference to “knowledge reports” which are common in the church and require the member to submit to pseudo-psychotherapy sessions afterwards known as “auditing”. According to Tony Ortega, who runs the reputed Scientology blog, the Underground Bunker, Remini has bad blood with both Cruise and Holmes after disrupting their 2006 wedding in Rome. Leah and Angelo ended up leaving their hotel late — waiting for J-Lo’s security detail to give them the green light — and arrived at the castle about an hour after the other guests. Leah asked about it, and was told by Tommy Davis, the son of actress Anne Archer and a Sea Org lackey to Tom Cruise, that Leah “didn’t have the fucking rank” to ask about Shelly’s whereabouts. (What Leah didn’t know at that time was that more than a year earlier Shelly had been banished to a super-secret Scientology compound in the mountains above Los Angeles, where she remains to this day.) Leah also caused a stir when she asked to have Jennifer Lopez moved because J-Lo wanted to sit with her.

In fact, Leah’s behavior caused such a stink, after the wedding the Scientologists in attendance did what Scientologists do, and they filed Knowledge Reports with the church in order to snitch on each other. I was an actor before, an actor during and an actor now.” In a taped deposition from 2013 for his $50 million lawsuit against Life & Style and In Touch magazines, Cruise himself suggests that Holmes divorced him, in part, to protect their daughter Suri from Scientology.
