Famous Ex-Scientologists

Leah Remini's A Hero

Leah Remini
is the new QUEEN of the ex-Scientologists -- according to two famous defectors ... because she had the iron gonads to stand up to the Church.

As you know ... Leah filed a missing person's report with the LAPD ... claiming Shelly Miscavige, the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige ... hadn't been seen for 6 years.  Detectives found Shelly and determined she's fine.

Marc and Claire Headley -- two outspoken, former high-ranking Scientologists are praising Leah for her testicular fortitude. Claire tells us, "Shelly was seen for the first time in 7 years. At least we know she's alive."

Claire is skeptical that Shelly is exercising free will, and believes the outreach by Leah will show Shelly that people care about her "on the outside."

Marc believes Shelly was "trotted out" to LAPD officers by Scientology handlers, but a source connected to the Church tells TMZ that's ridiculous.  The LAPD also tells TMZ ... they have concluded Shelly is not being held against her will.

Oh look --- according to possiblyhelpfuladvice.com, LAPD's Gerald Chaleff is in bed with scientology! What a shocker.

"Chaleff, formerly Scientology Inc lead paid lying mouthpiece…uh, lawyer, is actually on staff now for the LAPD as a lawyer and member of the command team. (1) Some consider him in the #2 position in the LAPD. He formerly was the president of the LAPD police commission before Mayor Riordan fired his butt in 2001. Apparently he held that position the same time he was lead counsel for Scientology Inc. "

►"The LAPD also tells TMZ ... they have concluded Shelly is not being held against her will."◄

BUT WAIT, TMZ just said in another story that...

"One question we asked that we could not get answered ... Did cops determine Shelly was or was not being held against her will?"

So TMZ which is it?

From what I have read on Scientology and the billions of money and global real estate they have, and how they stalk and intimidate members. Really horrific stuff! They tap phone lines, have survallience everywhere, on and on. The only reason they became a "church" was to get out of paying taxes. Landmark court case. They also believe they are above the law. One can only hope they leave Leah alone and let her perform on the show without creating underground problems....
