After reports surfaced stating that Kirstie Alley was furious at that her longtime friend Leah Remini for left the church of Scientology, she has taken to the Twitterverse to vent frustration.
“When faced w malicious gossip I take a moment to experience the loss of the person I thought was my friend… then I say f— em…” Alley, tweeted on Wednesday. This of course got many people thinking the statement was directed toward Remini herself.
“Don’t believe everything you read,” Alley warned in a series of statements denying the accusations.
Kirstie Alley is one of the most highly profiled follower of the religion and was said to have been in numerous meetings with church executives dealing with Reminis departure. Sources say that leaving the Church of Scientology means you have to basically go into a pseudo witness protection program with some defected members under constant surveillance. Katie Holmes was a victim of such tactics according to reports following her divorce from famous Scientologist Tom Cruise. These Former members suggest the need to “lay low” try to slowly pull away then change your address, job and even phone numbers in order to successfully unplug from the group.
“lying news outlets. I do NOT care what religion ANYONE is or isn’t. I respect religions & would fight for your freedom as well as mine.” Alley tweeted in an effort to stop the rumors of the rift between herself and Remini. Kirstie has used her Twitter page as an outlet for her personal catharsis and has recently gone as far as asking her followers sage advice on the subject.” Need ur opinion.IF there was a whopping lie about U floating around, would U make a statement or let it pass? I’d appreciate your views. :)” and the answers came flowing in. Alley is said to be digesting the advice for now. “I wish to share my sincere and heartfelt appreciation for the overwhelming positive response I have received from the media, my colleagues, and from fans around the world,” she said quickly followed by “Don’t care much about my own reputation .I DO that people who R genuinely interested could know the truth..others won’t believe it anyway.”
Is there some kind of formal press release from her in the near future?
