Leah Remini asks 'Where is Shelly' as the Church of Scientology turns 65! - 2018-12-18
We have quite a two-fer today, campers. December 18 is an anniversary of some import, which we describe in our second item (and happy birthday, Church of Scientology!). But it's also the day that Leah Remini is finally taking the story of Shelly Miscavige head-on.
You will remember that this website, in July 2013, broke the news that Leah Remini had defected from Scientology after some 35 years in the church. What started her on her path out? In 2006, at the wedding in Rome of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Leah noticed that Scientology leader David Miscavige was there without his wife Shelly, whom Leah had long considered a friend.
Where was Shelly? When Leah dared to bring it up, then-spokesman Tommy Davis told her she didn't have "the fucking rank" to even ask the question.
