Leah Remini Talks Scientology: 'The Church Is Waiting For Me To Fail' On 'DWTS' (VIDEO)

Leah Remini opened up about her departure from the church of Scientology on "Dancing With the Stars" Monday night.

“We’re used to everything that happens to us [being] our fault, you’re used to taking on a lot of negativity on yourself. The church is looking for me to fail so they can say to their parishioners, ‘You see what happens when you leave the church?’ They're waiting for me to fail,” Remini told her dance partner Tony Dovolani.

Remini said she hoped the experience of doing the show would help get her out of her head and help her stop beating herself up about the highly-publicized split.

She did just that Monday night, dancing the samba. And while she’s been mocked a bit for her not-so-great dancing, she got better scores Monday.
