SPECIAL EPISODE ADDED: Leah Remini series adds Monday hour featuring Paulette Cooper - 2016-12-16
Titled "Ask Me Anything," the show was quickly put together after the series, which debuted on November 29, turned out to be A&E's most-watched in two years. Filming for the special episode took place last week, and we know that Leah interviewed journalist Paulette Cooper and former Scientologists Karen de la Carriere and Chris Shelton, and perhaps others.
In 1971, Paulette published The Scandal of Scientology, one of the first books to expose L. Ron Hubbard, after she first wrote about Scientology in a 1969 magazine article. From the day that article appeared until 1985, Paulette was under constant surveillance and bullying by Scientology's sophisticated "Guardian's Office" spy corps, and the church's various entities filed 19 different lawsuits against her. It's such an outrageous example of what Scientology can do when it is determined to destroy someone, we wrote a whole book about it.
