Leah Remini

Screw Scientology

I'm 'Dancing with the Stars'

Leah Remini
is going from Dianetics to disco ... TMZ has learned, the famous ex-Scientologist will appear in the upcoming season of "Dancing with the Stars" ... and Snooki will be making her post-pregnancy debut along with her.

Sources close to production tell us, the former "King of Queens" actress is on the show.

As we reported, Remini recently underwent a very public split from the Church of Scientology after raising questions about the disappearance of church leader David Miscavige's wife Shelly.

Remini filed a missing persons report regarding Shelly's disappearance in July, demanding answers, and the Church was NOT pleased ... ripping the actress for her wanton betrayal.

FYI, police claim they made contact with Shelly in the wake of Remini's report and determined Remini's concerns were "unfounded." Eerie.

In addition to Remini and Snooki, our sources say Elizabeth Berkley,  Amber Riley from "Glee," and Christina Milian will also be on the show.

I'll check it out with her on it. What would be awesome is if they got Kevin James to do it too the same season as she is doing it.
The rest of the ones listed are reasons not to watch it in my opinion, especially Christina Milian. I have to mute it whenever she is talking on the Voice she is so annoying and valley-girlish.

Congratulations Leah. I'll certainly be watching. I've always thought the rest of the "actor" religious yahoos were all bozoes anyways. I'm so glad your out and write a book, but get security. I wouldn't put anything past anyone who lives in a cult!!!!!!

Leah Remini is all sorts of awesome. The King of Queens is right up there with Seinfeld, Malcolm in the Middle, Arrested Development - in that every episode is classic. Her portrayal of Carrie makes her one of the best TV sitcom wive's alongside Alice Kramden and Lois (Malcolm) because she doesn't take any crap and is a force of nature, not to be trifled with (like most women I know, respect and yeah, fear!). Obviously she wasn't acting in that role as she's ready to take on the Church of Scientology. I mean, if I was the Church, I'd back the eff off - have you seen this woman in action?

43 years old, smokin' hot, great actress, tough as nails and incredibly intelligent. Much respect for this great lady.

She is awesome. She's going to kick booty and I'll vote for her every week.
I hope her book comes out about all of the abuses (human trafficking, forced abortion, slavery, child labor, being a pyramid scheme, disconnection policies, etc.,) around when she is on! Leah is a hero!
