(Newser) – Seven months after famously cutting ties with the Church of Scientology, Leah Remini is opening up about why she left. The former King of Queens star tells BuzzFeed that the church made her lose sight of her family. "In my house, it's family first—but I was spending most of my time at the church. So, I was saying 'family first,' but I wasn't showing that. I didn't like the message that sent my daughter." Plus, daughter Sofia was reaching the age for auditing, an intense questioning practice to gain entry into Scientology, and Remini didn’t want her to go through the process.
