Leah Remini has long been a household name, but her new reality show is giving her entire family a chance to shine in the spotlight for the first time. The actress and former co-host of The Talk has opened up about the upcoming premiere of Leah Remini: It’s All Relative with a warning for us all.
Along with the star and her husband of 10 years, salsa musician, Angelo Pagán, TLC boasts their program will include Remini’s “opinionated mother, eccentric stepfather, sister and brother-in-law.”
“I’m so happy to be opening my home to TLC and to be sharing my family with you,” 44-year-old Remini said in an announcement about her show Tuesday. “Beware — in these last 13 weeks of working on the show, my mother and stepfather already feel they are the true talent and breakouts of the show and expect to be offered sitcoms.”
Remini has been outspoken about her reasons for leaving the Church of Scientology, a topic which is expected to be referenced in TLC’s reality program.
The first episode of her upcoming reality series, which debuts July 10, will reportedly focus on a party she and her husband throw for friends who stood by them after they made their controversial exit from the church. In June of 2013, she famously stated, “Everything the church taught me was a lie.”
Here’s your first look at the show, for which the network has ordered 12 episodes:
