10 Jaw-Dropping Revelations From Leah Remini's Scientology Tell-All, Troublemaker | GlamourTroublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology is a biographical memoir by the American actress, producer, author, and comedian Leah Remini. Published in November , it chronicles her life, her acting career, her experiences as a member of the Church of Scientology from a young age, and her subsequent split from Scientology. It received favorable reviews and became a bestseller soon after publication, though the Church of Scientology was strongly critical of it. The book describes Remini's more than 30 years in Scientology — which in hindsight she views as "often deeply strange" — joining as a child along with her parents. She became a popular child star and a successful adult actor, making her one of Scientology's top celebrities. Although she had a troubled time as a member of the elite Sea Org when she was a teenager, she was a committed and high-profile member who was on friendly terms with the church's leadership. She claims to have contributed millions of dollars to the Church Of Scientology for the innumerable training courses she completed and for the Church's Building Fund as well as for its various, ostensibly altruistic, outreach programs around the world.
