Leah Remini: Church of Scientology is ‘Looking For Me To Fail’ on DWTS (VIDEO)


By Michael Lewittes



Leah Remini says her biggest adversary on “Dancing with the Stars” is the Church of Scientology.

The actress, who was slammed by the church after she recently left the religion, told her partner Tony Dovolani during rehearsals on Monday’s episode, “The church is looking for me to fail so they can say to their parishioners: ‘See what happens when you leave the church.'”


A spokesperson for the church fired back at Remini on Tuesday, telling “Good Morning America,” “We know this may come as a surprise to someone as self-absorbed as Ms. Remini, but we could care less if she wins or loses on ‘Dancing With the Stars.'”
