Donna Fiore says Scientology is hounding her for dirt on stepdaughter Leah Remini - 2017-06-05
Last week we told you about a new smear video that had been uploaded to the website the Church of Scientology uses to attack Leah Remini and her A&E series, Scientology and the Aftermath. The video was posted just hours before a new two-hour Aftermath special was aired on Memorial Day, last Monday night.
The video featured Leah's estranged father, George Remini, 69, and his 36-year-old wife, Dana Connaughton. The two of them were apparently filmed at their dining room table, and during one point in the 18-minute video, we could hear a woman's voice asking questions.
The video appeared on a page at the attack website that also contained an email written several years ago by Leah Remini's stepmother, Donna Fiore. It was a brutal email, but we called up Donna and she explained that it was written just days after the death of her youngest daughter, Stephanie, Leah's half-sister, and her emotions were raw. She characterized it as typical of "an Italian family," and said it did not reflect how she felt about her stepdaughter. She said she had no idea how Scientology had a copy of the email.
