Transcript for Leah Remini on New Reality Show, Sitcom
I sure do. Leah remini is back and busier than ever. She is starring in "The exes" and a brand-new reality show called "Leah remini: It's all relative" and her whole family is involved. Her husband, daughter, even her mom. Here's a sneak peek. Angelo, your wife has snapped. Are you kidding me? Stopping your 65-year-old mother from getting a tramp stamp is micromanaging. I mean, she is hilarious as is the wonderful Leah remini. Thank you. Welcome to "Good morning America." Thank you. Your mother is a piece of work. Oh, yeah, big time. You know, she thinks we're a little behind the times because she's always seen herself as the real star of this family. Like she's even saying now they'll offer me a sitcom. No, they're not. They're going to offer me a sitcom. No they're not. My money is on her? She's pretty much the breakout star. Why did you decide it was time or want to open up your life? You know, it's like we usually have these things like we shouldn't do this. We shouldn't do that. You know, we have representatives that, you know, say, okay, this is how you do your -- there is no way to do our career these days. It's changing, the business is changing but also because, you know, it came at a time when we were going through change and that's why I said yes to "Dancing with the stars," things I was afraid of and I was like, why not? You know, this is bringing our family even closer together. Why not? I don't want to be so serious about every decision I make in my career so that's why I said yes. I did I little before on vh-1 on my wedding and my baby and I just -- I had a nice experience doing it. It's not like you need the work. You're on "The exes" so it is something you must enjoy doing. I do. Listen, I like entertaining people. I like making people laugh. That's what I do. I love to work. So, you know, I was like, yes, a chance to make somebody laugh, yes. We also see a serious side of you too. In the first episode we see you surrounded by friends and family, really supporting you as you make the decision to leave the church of scientology. Uh-huh. How important was that group hug for you emotionally at that time. Yeah, well, it wasn't -- it's not easy, you know, as time goes on, you, you know, it's not easy, you look through your phone, I can't call this person. I'm not allowed to talk to -- but as we were in that kind of loss and grief because we're still sad. We lost our friends, we're like, but we also have to look at what we do have as opposed to what we don't have and we have great family. We have great friends still in our lives and so we were like, we should start celebrating what we have and that's why we decided to throw the party. Were you surprised by the public's interest in your separation with the church? I'm always surprised. I mean like, really. Is that that fascinating? Okay. But, again, it's something you're raised in, you're in it so you don't see what -- well, what do you want to know? I have a lot of friends and always wanted to ask. Why didn't you ask me? Yes, you're so in it that you don't really see the fascination. Right, you have a different perspective. Completely. Everybody wants to ask you some questions. These are our viewers. One is about, of course, Kevin James who you worked with for so many years on "King of queens." Will you ever work with Kevin James again. I would love to. I'm always begging him for a job like in a second. Is that a possibility? I don't know. I'm still literally begging him. Is there a part -- I even showed up to his set. It's getting uncomfortable now. He's like, uh, no. I'm with Salma Hayek. Oh, come on, honey. No, I'd do it in a second. The show is all about family. "It's all relative" so we made a game. Are you ready. Lightning round. Your favorite TV family. Oh, man, I got to date myself, right. Okay, "I love Lucy." Yeah, right. Good choice. Let's just go with that because I'm really going to date myself when I say "The partridge family." One more. One more. Your favorite family recipe from momma. From my mom. She's not really a good cook but she makes this disgusting tuna casserole. I'm the only one that likes it. What do you want? Make your tuna -- I eat the whole bowl. Tuna with pasta and olives, random. I tell you it's delightful. A sampling of the magic that you will all see. Yes. From Leah's mom and the clan. It's called "Leah remini: It's all relative." It premieres tomorrow night on tlc.
