    this doesn't sound like going up the bridge.. I wonder if this is about cliques and witchhunts ala Queen Jenna Elfman deciding you are not upstat enough?

    It is INCREDIBLE that she talks about auditing children! BRAVO Leah! And to give examples of the questions..FANTASTIC!! This will be repeated over and over and any subsequent interviews asked about again & again!! Eat it Scientology! No hiding your abuse of defenseless children now!

    UPDATE: Co$/scientology responds:

    Link to LA Times article: http://www.latimes.com/entertainmen...-alley-20140227,0,7175804.story#axzz2uZZZJFqm


    Looks like they've finished going through the auditing files and are getting ready to "leak" stuff.

    So can anyone explain the no drinking rule? I didn't know practicing $cientologists couldn't drink?

    Re: Leah Remini left scientology for her daugher's sake - Co$ Responds...

    Great! :thumbsup:

    I'm hope we're all checking to see which sites post the response and which sites don't.
    (Right now, only the LA Times has added the Co$ response.)

    During the last few weeks, here's what's been aimed @ the public-at-large:

    Vanity Fair's 'Where's Shelly?' article + BuzzFeed's Leah Remini interview.
    Co$ countered with Travolta's story about how Co$ helped him w/his grief + NFL commercials + buying a 24-hour YouTube ad banner.

    I think Co$ is losing the contest for control of public opinion quite badly.

    It'd sure help things along if TVLand's "Kirstie" show doesn't get renewed for a 2nd season.

    What an incredible distinction the crime syndicate called Scientology makes.

    Leah Remini is not an "unemployed blogger on the fringe of the internet",

    nor is she a "defrocked apostate."

    Instead, she "was on the verge of being expelled for her ethical lapses."

    You almost have to admire them for sheer chutzpah and mendacity.

    Scientology is shameless.

    Remini realized that she needed to protect her daughter from a dangerous cult.

    Katie Holmes had the same realization.

    As parents, we have a sacred obligation to protect our children.

    I wish more Scientologists had that ​cognition.

    May the Grace of the Universe be with You, Leah Remini. :clap:

    You did the right for your child and I know it took guts, guile and gumption. :thumbsup:

    If more Scn Parents had had your gravitas, grace and good sense over the last 40 years Scn would have collapsed by now and the vile exploitation of children would be over. :yes:

    Peace Be With You, Leah. :heartflower:


    Face:)

    Us Weekly now has the story updated stating that they got the "exclusive" on the Co$ response.

    Best part?

    US Weekly does not provide the name of the Co$ spokesrep! :hysterical:


    So that's two sites that published the Co$ response thus far - LA Times & USWeekly.

    You have to wonder if the "unnamed spokesman" was lying in a tanning bed, guzzling single malt Scotch.
