Help Us Decode Leah Remini's Anti-Scientology Dance From Last Night's Dancing With The Stars - 2013-10-15
And it was performed by King of Queens actress Leah Remini, who once again had a giant platform to talk about her experience of walking away from the Church of Scientology. The contestants were asked to describe their "most memorable year" and then make it the inspiration for a dance, and in Leah's case, it was no surprise that she chose this past year. In fact, it was twelve months ago, in October 2012, when she met with Scientology leader David Miscavige — a rare honor, even for a top Scientology celebrity like Leah — but she reportedly came away more determined than ever to leave Scientology. She then spent several months preparing her family to leave with her, and by July, when we broke the news, she was out for good.
None of that was actually explained on last night's TV show, of course. In fact, Leah didn't even use the word "Scientology" at all. But there was just no question what she meant when she said things like "You can't let anybody dictate to you how you should live."
