Leah teamed up again with former costar Kevin James in Kevin Can Wait in 2017-2018. The show was canceled after two seasons, partly because the actress that played Kevin’s wife was “killed off,” allowing for more interaction between Kevin and Leah Remini to rekindle their onscreen chemistry.
In 2021, Leah began hosting the Game Show Network’s People Puzzler game show.
What is Leah Remini’s Net Worth?
The Leah Remini net worth has grown over the years as she has been steadily working on television since she was a teen. However, as a Scientologist for many years of her adult life, she no doubt gave the church a substantial amount of her net worth.
Remini estimates that she spent $2 million on Scientology services and training and donated another $3 million to the church. Scientology even demanded Leah pay back $40,000 for sandwiches and snacks she “stole” as a teen worker for Scientology.
Despite the Scientology reduction to her net worth, Leah Remini net worth is around $25 million. Between her television appearances and other ventures, such as her book sales, Leah Remini’s net worth increases by $3 million a year.
Leah purchased a home in Studio City for $3.75 million in 2003. This luxurious Studio City home is now worth $8.5 million.
Who is Leah Remini?
Born Leah Marie Remini, Leah is the child of George Remini and Vicki Marshall. George and Vicki divorced in 1977 when Leah was 7. Leah has one full brother, Michael, one full sister, Nicole, and four half-sisters Stephanie, Christine, Elizabeth, and Shannon. Stephanie passed away in 2013. Leah Remini was baptized as a Roman Catholic, but at an early age, her mother, Vicki, became a follower of the Church of Scientology when she married Dennis Farrara. He was already a member of Scientology. He converted Leah, her mother, and her siblings to the Church of Scientology.
Leah Remini was a child when she was introduced to Scientology, so she naturally accepted its teachings. Remini quit school to serve in the Sea Organization in her young teens. Once the family moved to Los Angeles, her mother, Vicki, removed the girls from the Sea Organization to return to the regular Church of Scientology life.
Despite paying a large amount of her net worth to Scientology, Remini remained loyal until she asked the whereabouts of Shelly Miscavige, Scientology leader David Miscavige’s wife, at the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes wedding. Shelly has not been seen in public since 2007.
Scientology members turned on Remini, saying she should not have questioned church rules, and the church blackballed her. She said she was subject to interrogation and harassment, with the church even investigating her family.
Leah Remini announced she was leaving Scientology in 2013. Shortly after, the rest of Remini’s family left the Church of Scientology. Realizing other former members had received the same harassment she had, she wrote Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology.
Scientology and the Aftermath
In 2016, she and several former high-ranking Scientology officials began a mission to educate people on the downfall of Scientology. She developed the A&E show Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, in which she and co-host Mike Rinder investigated stories of abuse and harassment of other former Scientologists. The show lasted three seasons, ending with a two-hour special in 2019.
