Leah Remini: Scientology Church wants me to lose 'Dancing with the Stars'

On Monday’s episode of “Dancing with the Stars,” Leah Remini finally opened up about her contentious split with the Church of Scientology.

“The church is looking for me to fail,” the actress told dance partner Tony Dovolani, “so they can say to their parishioners, ‘You see what happens when you leave the church.’ They’re waiting for me to fail”

Remini’s decision to finally confide in Dovolani, and the audience, about her difficulty coming to terms with life outside Scientology did not go over well with the church.

“We know this may come as a surprise to someone as self-absorbed as Ms. Remini, but we could care less if she wins or loses on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’” a church spokesperson said in a statement to “Good Morning America.”
