Leah Remini famously left the Church of Scientology back in 2013, and now she wants to tell the world all the details and discuss the backlash that came with this decision.
The 45-year-old "King of Queens" actress has chosen to write a tell-all memoir about her life in the public eye and what it was like growing up with the Church of Scientology, according to People. The book, which is being published by Ballantine Books, will be titled "Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology" and will hit shelves on Nov. 3.
"Bold, brash and bravely confessional, 'Troublemaker' chronicles Leah Remini's remarkable journey toward emotional and spiritual freedom, both for herself and for her family," a press release says, according to Entertainment Weekly.
While many already know about her decision and the controversy that came with it, this book will reveal all the crazy truths that came with leaving a religion that cuts you off from your friends and family the second you make your decision, Vanity Fair reported. She plans to put an "even more familiar face on the story that's already been told."
It has become clear that Remini has been privately writing this book for some time, based off of the short window between the announcement and publication date, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Books are typically announced at least a year in advance. She told Buzzfeed last year that she was considering writing a memoir like this, but she didn't "want to be known as this bitter ex-Scientologist."
"I decided I didn't want to raise my daughter in the church because from what I've experience and what I saw, the church becomes your everything," she said on her TLC reality show "Leah Remini: It's All Relative" about her decision to leave. "It becomes your mother, your father, your everything. You are dependent on the church."
