The former King of Queens star has been extremely vocal in her disagreement with the Church of Scientology since leaving it in 2013.

Meanwhile, the "Kevin Can Wait" actress also talked about fellow actress Elisabeth Moss, who is now affiliated with the Church of Scientology.

Their statement goes on, "this shows the extent Leah Remini is willing to go to distort the truth about Scientology".

Over the weekend, Remini won Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming at the 33rd Annual Television Critics Association Awards for her docu-series, which may have displeased Moss.

"Moss believes that she can't talk to me", Remini explained in a recent interview.

'It means you only say what's acceptable to the public. But she believes that I'm an antisocial personality - because I've spoken out against Scientology.

Moss was raised a Scientologist and has previously praised the religion for giving her stability and making her a better version of herself. "I don't hold anything against Elisabeth Moss other than she's continuing to support a group that is abusive and destroying families".

And if you thought Leah was courageous for taking on Scientology after season one, just wait until you hear what she has planned for season two of the series.

Ellen Thompson, the wife of TVLine's Dave Nemetz, tweeted that Moss "left the room" when Remini accepted her award on Friday night.

As for why she thinks many people don't leave Scientology, Remini told DeGeneres that it's not what people may think. 'I thank you for proving those theories wrong'. She claimed that the new episodes will shine a light on what she calls, "the abusive practices of Scientology".

Per Remini, she hopes the show will present enough damning evidence to warrant a federal investigation. "Any award I get is for them". If the Federal Bureau of Investigation ever wanted to get anywhere, all that's necessary is a raid.

While Leah was discussing her new series, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, the actress, 47, revealed her objective as one where she would expose all of the allegedly horrific details of the enterprise, including things like sexual and physical abuse.

She said victims of such incidents "gets punished for pulling it in", or doing something without telling the church, which is why the abuse occurred. "Anything that happens to you in Scientology happens to you because you made it happen". They handle it in Scientology.

Scientology spokeswoman Karin Pouw said that the church has had to increase security in months since its premiere. With the series bringing Remini her first-ever Emmy nomination, it's bittersweet.
