Once actress Leah Remini, who was a Scientologist for quite a few years, decided to leave that church behind, she realized she wanted to do more than just have her eyes be open, she wanted to open the eyes of others as well.

That’s why in 2016, she began a new docu-series on A&E called “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath,” which explores her past experiences with the religion, as well as the experiences of other former members.

It gives viewers an inside look at what some people went through during their time as members of the Church of Scientology. And Remini always keeps it real, and tells it like it is. She doesn’t hold back.

During Tuesday night’s new episode, the 47-year-old went off about celebrity Scientologists, including John Travolta, who in her opinion, refuse to open their mind and their eyes to what’s going on in the church. She also revealed she disapproves of reporters who allow these celebritie Scientologists to give such short answers about the religion in interviews.

“Whether you’re a celebrity or not, something has to go off in your mind that ‘This isn’t right, I’m justifying horrible behavior in myself and others,’” Remini said during the episode. “And celebrities have access to information. There is no excuse now. They’re in a prison of their own mind to not want to know, and if they do know, Scientology has a self-protecting mechanism that doesn’t allow people to look.”

Before Remini continued, viewers were shown an interview clip of a Hollyscoop reporter asking Danny Masterson in 2008 if he gets upset when he hears all of the negative things on Scientology.

“No, because no one ever says anything that makes any sense,” Masterson tells the reporter. “And no one ever says anything that’s true.”

This brings Remini to her next point, about how Scientologist aren’t even able to talk about the religion without just putting down all other responses.

“They can’t even have a conversation,” she said. “They say, ‘Nope, listen — I don’t watch that kind of stuff.’ Celebrities [say], ‘Why would I watch anything that’s bigoted?’”

That’s when a 2008 E! News interview with Travolta, one of the most well-known star Scientologists, plays and the actor is seen being asked if he’s watched Remini’s documentary about Scientology, to which he replied: “No, not interested.”

The A&E star was not okay with that answer, and doesn’t think anyone else should be either.

“Cut the shit,” Remini said. “That’s a pussy answer, and journalists who accept that answer are also pussies. So, I’m calling their shit out, too.”

But just because many Scientologists who are celebrities haven’t been very open-minded in the past, that doesn’t mean it isn’t possible. Clearly, things changed for Remini who was a Scientologists for years before leaving. And just like Remini was able to eventually able to see outside of the Church of Scientology and eventually venture outside of it, quite a few other celebrities have also been able to do so.

“Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” airs on A&E on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EDT.
