Leah Remini revealed that she hasn’t been in a great relationship with Elisabeth Moss ever since she left Scientology – the infamous cult that Moss is still a member of. The vocal Scientology opponent added that Moss is not allowed to talk to her due to certain rules the Church imposes on its members.
‘There is a thing in Scientology called ‘acceptable truth.’ It means you only say what is acceptable to the public. But she believes that I am an antisocial personality — because I have spoken out against Scientology. So she is not allowed to talk to me. And me knowing that I would not put her in the awkward position,’ the actress explained.
But their strained relationship may be a problem considering they are both expected to attend the Emmys this year.
While Remini is nominated for her show Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, Moss got a nomination for her part in The Handmaid’s Tale.
Leah went on to claim that she would certainly try to have a conversation with Elisabeth if she were to run into her at the awards show.
She also added that aside from being part of a community that is harmful and destructive to their families, Remini has nothing against Moss as a person.
This weekend, Remini also won Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming at the 33rd Annual Television Critics Association Awards for the same Scientology-exposing docu-series.
Wife of TVLine’s Dave Nemetz, Ellen Thompson took to social media to share that the displeased Moss left the room when Leah accepted her award on Friday.
Previously, Remini revealed that she has been suffering inevitable repercussions, such as being followed around and spied on ever since she left the cult.
However, her experience pales in comparison to the ways in which many other people are bullied into silence by the Church.
