Leah Remini starts third season with bombshell Scientology escape story - 2018-11-27
After two "special" episodes — one about Jehovah's Witnesses and one about the emotional pain of leaving Scientology — A&E's Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath officially kicks off its third season tonight with an absolute blockbuster of an episode.
Valerie Haney's story is one that we've been waiting to hear for a long time. We actually wrote about Valerie five years ago, but we didn't tell you her name at that time. In fact, Valerie was still confined to Int Base then, working as a casting agent for Scientology films, and we learned her story from a close friend who was an eyewitness to what had happened to her — that she had suffered some of the blowback when Shelly Miscavige fell afoul of her husband, Scientology leader David Miscavige.
Valerie didn't escape from the base until 2016, and now she is telling her story for the first time on tonight's bombshell episode.
