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.
After Leah Remini opened up about her decision to leave Scientology, saying "everything the church taught me was a lie," the Church of Scientology is firing back at the actress. In a statement released to People, the church attacks Remini's character, questioning her motives behind the so-called "publicity stunt."
Leah Remini is finally breaking her silence about her split from the Church of Scientology.
In a lengthy interview with Buzzfeed, Remini recounts her "horrendous" first exposure to the church as a child, when her mother relocated Remini and her sisters to Clearwater, Florida, where they became members.

Kirstie Alley, Leah Remini
Kirstie Alley has never been one to mince words, and during an interview with Howard Stern on Wednesday, the actress turned her tongue against Leah Remini.
Alley called Remini, who left Scientology in July, a "bigot" and asserted that her negative claims about the church are "bullsh--." Remini said in September that she has lost friends since leaving Scientology and that the church was looking for her to fail onDancing with the Stars, where she finished in fifth place.
Stars who quit Scientology
Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff
Only five contestants remain on Season 17 of Dancing with the Stars, and it's anybody's guess who will go home with the Mirrorball trophy. Only two of the semifinalists — Amber Riley and Corbin Bleu — have professional dance experience, but at this point in the competition, is that more of a hindrance or a help?
"[The judges] leave no room for error for us," Karina Smirnoff, who's partnered with Bleu, tells TVGuide.com.
Peta Murgatroyd and Brant Daugherty
TVGuide.com caught up with Murgatroyd on Tuesday to discuss their shocking dismissal, and get her thoughts on how Cher did as a guest judge.
Perhaps the only person more surprised than Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi when she and partner Sasha Farber were eliminated from Dancing with the Stars last week was Bill Engvall. Engvall and his partner, Emma Slater (who also happens to be Farber's girlfriend) were thisclose to elimination the previous week, but were spared, thanks to a glitch in the voting system that resulted in every couple being safe.

Leah Remini, Tony Dovolani
Leah Remini has certainly gotten her share of attention this year.
Following her very public split with the Church of Scientology, the actress now finds herself in a different kind of spotlight, on the ballroom floor each week on Dancing with the Stars. Remini and partner Tony Dovolani are one of the eight remaining couples on Season 17 of Dancing. The former King of Queens star chatted with TVGuide.com recently about her big turnaround last week, keeping her emotions in check during rehearsals, and which fellow cast member she describes as her "support system at work."
