Aaron Smith-Levin appears on 'Leah Remini,' hours later gets own Scientology attack site - 2017-01-04
We were thoroughly blown away last night watching Aaron Smith-Levin talk about his family's complex history in Scientology. We couldn't believe how much territory Aaron and Leah Remini and Mike Rinder covered on the latest episode of Leah's A&E series, Scientology and the Aftermath, from the IRS granting Scientology tax exempt status in 1993, to Aaron breaking down as he described losing his twin brother in a car accident while they were separated by Scientology's "disconnection" policy.
We wondered what the Church of Scientology was going to put up as a reaction to the show. We didn't have to wait long. A couple of hours after the episode aired, the church posted a number of videos to the website it maintains to rebut Remini's show.
Among the people Scientology convinced to talk on camera about Aaron were his wife's mother and sister. (Aaron's wife Heather didn't speak for Leah's show, but she has sided with her husband against the rest of her family.)
