Leah Remini, the former star of "The King of Queens" made one of the most high-profile exits from Scientology in 2013. She revealed that the reason behind her leaving the high-profile religion was due to some incidents that made her question the institution and the hierarchy of Scientology.

Remini then published "Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology" in 2015, which is her account of her time with Scientology and the reason why she and her family left. According to reports from The Atlantic, Remini expressed her anticipation of the Church's well-documented practice of attacking its critics, in the introduction of the book. She already knows that her move will make her the Church's target, so she already provided an advanced counter-act. She was noted writing, "After the Church of Scientology gets hold of this book, it may well spend an obscene amount of money... in an attempt to discredit me by disparaging my reputation, so let me save them some time."

Her vocal renouncement of her faith, which she was loyal to for 35 years makes her new eight-part documentary series on A&E all the more appealing to people. Entitled "Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath", the show targets an audience that has already been used to true crime formats and revelations. But, the show triggers more interest as her documentary provides a closer look at an organization shrouded in mystery, influence, secrecy and recently has been on a decline. It reveals stories of abuse and repression by the Church.

E! News also writes about a revelation that Remini has about Tom Cruise, who is Scientology's most high-profile member in Hollywood. It was revealed that Remini thought that the "Mission Impossible" star's involvement in the Church did not really encourage joiners and instead made people leave. She told The Hollywood Reporter and E! that there was a time when Scientology was more accepted and she didn't find the actor to be particularly a great example of the faith, a fact that she claimed she made known to the Church.

As expected, the Church of Scientology will be at "war" with Remini again regarding these matters come the premiere of her new documentary series. People should wait on how the Church will respond to the contents of the show, so the actress' battle isn't nearing it's end just yet.
