Leah Remini to Star in TLC Reality Show
Leah Remini has signed on to star in her own TLC reality show, the network announced Wednesday.
The King of Queens star and Dancing with the Stars alum will be joined by her husband of 10 years, Angelo, and their 9 year-old daughter, Sofia. The series will also feature Remini’s mother and stepfather, plus her sister and brother-in-law, whose secret coded language apparently drives the actress bonkers. Some of Remini’s staff will also be featured, including her “wisecracking” housekeeper, Sofia’s British nanny and her personal assistant, who happens to be an aspiring actress.
TLC has ordered 12 episodes of the untitled project, which begins production Wednesday and is slated for a summer premiere.
The reality series comes in the midst of Remini’s feud with the Church of Scientology, from which she publicly split with in June. Of course, signing on for her own reality show won’t do much to refute the Church’s claims that she has an “insatiable craving for attention,” but Remini’s made it clear just how much stock she puts in what the church says anymore.
