Kirstie Alley is threatening to “retaliate” against Leah Remini and other former members of the Church of Scientology. The staunch Scientologist has posted a series of angry rants on Twitter, apparently targeting her former friend for lashing out at the church.
“This is one of those days when I might just retaliate with the truth…” Kirstie wrote on Thursday, supposedly referring to people who talk negatively about Scientology.
She also retweeted a follower’s post, adding “mean people keep us fuelled.”

The 62-year-old former “Cheers” star then tweeted a quote from Oscar Wilde, “I have learned this: It is not what one does that is wrong, but what one becomes as a consequence of it.” Some of her tweets afterwards include:
When one of her followers asked if they are “doing the Scientology thing AGAIN?” she just answered, “lol.”
Kirstie didn’t mention Leah’s name, but many assume that she’s indeed talking about the former “King of Queens” actress since she’s the latest, high profile star who denounced the church.
Leah made headlines in July for leaving the controversial religion after being a member for so many years.
She reportedly started considering her decision as early as 2006 when Tom Cruise, the church’s most famous member, married Katie Holmes. She was allegedly told that she did not possess the rank when she asked about the whereabouts of church leader David Miscavige’s wife.
In a guest appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ eponymous talk show in earlier in September, the 43-year-old actress admitted that she opposed some of Scientology practices. Including its “disconnection” rule, in which it brands members who have left “Suppressive Persons.”
Leah also made an interesting revelation on the episode of “Dancing With the Stars” on Monday. As she was taking a break from practicing, she confided to dance partner Tony Dovolani that Scientology is “looking for me to fail so they can say to their parishioners, ‘Look what happens when you leave.’
“They’re waiting for me to fail.”
The church then responded by calling Leah “self-absorbed.”
Kirstie was said to be furious when she learned that Leah was invited to participate on the celebrity talent show “DWTS.” As someone who had participated in the show’s 12th season, Kirstie felt “extremely betrayed” that the producers had asked the ex-Scientology to join.
According to RadarOnline.com sources, the older actress was “absolutely stunned when it was announced that Leah would be a contestant on the show. Kirstie did feel extremely betrayed. Kirstie was livid that Leah made those comments about the church on Monday night.”
