Leah says her family is there for her. Her real family, she means.



Leah Remini is spilling the beans about her split from the Church of Scientology. She doesn't exactly admit to being threatened for asking questions about church leader David Miscavige's wife, as has been so widely reported, but she sure does imply it pretty loudly.

"I believe that people should be able to question things. I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct. That for me, that's what I'm about. It wouldn't matter what it was, simply because no one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to," the 43-year-old actress told People on Saturday.

The hows and whys really are inconsequential, she added. "It doesn't matter, it could be anything. I thought about the family being broken up for some other cause, and I'm not about to shut up."And boy, if there's one thing we learned after all those years of The King of Queens, it's that Leah likes to speak up.
