The (very) big day
Remini writes that Tom and Katie’s wedding was "regarded as 'official church business.'" The goal was to get celebrities to attend in order to legitimatize Scientology. She writes that the nuptials helped give off the "illusion of 'look how powerful Scientology is in this business."
The actress claims she found Suri crying on the bathroom floor during Tom and Katie's rehearsal dinner, and that Tom's sister and assistant were there... yelling at her to be quiet. Remini writes how she chastised the women before rabbing Suri’s bottle and heating it up in the kitchen.
Mother, may I slam you?
Remini once found herself alone with Isabella Cruise and asked if she sees her mom (Nicole Kidman) often. "Not if I have a choice,” Isabella replied, according to Remini. "Our mom is a fucking SP." (An SP, or suppressive person, is any individual who speaks out against the church.)
Nicole Kidman is Spanish Gold
Once Remini decided to leave the Church in 2013, she relied on the mere IDEA of Kidman for guidance, referring to her in the book as her "guardian angel" and adding: "Although I never met her or attempted to meet her, I thought about her a lot. While I stared at the dark ceiling at night, unable to sleep, I would say to myself, 'Remember Nicole Kidman. She was declared an SP and left the church, and she's doing okay. Her career is still going, and she has a husband and family … Just remember Nicole Kidman. She left and she's okay."
