So much for Kirstie Alley not being in a feud about Leah Remini‘s stance about the Church of Scientology. The “Kirstie” star spoke to Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show to respond to Remini’s claim that her friends in Scientology have shunned her.
“First of all, I just want everyone to know I have hundreds of friends and people that I know who have come into Scientology and left Scientology,” Alley says. “You’re not shunned. You’re not chased. All that stuff’s bulls***.”
She adds, “However, I will say this: When you are generalizing and when your goal is to malign and to say things about an entire group — there are tens of millions of Scientologists in the world — when you decide to blanket statement that Scientology is evil, you are my enemy.”
Alley went as far as to block Remini on Twitter because she feels she is a “bigot.” According to Alley, she and Remini were never friends to begin with.
“I didn’t care if she was in or out,” Alley says, adding that she hasn’t seen Remini in seven or eight years. “I don’t care what religion you are. If someone is attacking your religion, I will have your back and I will defend you. I think that is the most repulsive thing a person can do is attack another person’s faith.”
